Emma James felt secure in her life. Money, social standing and the protection of her step-brother. Or so she thought. When she discovers his dark secrets, he turns on her and sells her to a western brothel to keep her quiet. There, she's forced to work or participate in an auction. A virgin auction...and she's the prize.

One look at Emma James and Whitmore Kane and Ian Stewart know she would belong to them. Marriage was the only way to truly claim her...so they bid and bid well. As their bride, they return to the Bridgewater Ranch and teach her the ways to please not one husband, but two. But danger has tracked Ian around the world and threatens their newfound relationship. Together, can they fight the demons of the past while forging a future?

This is the first book in the Bridgewater Ménage Series, where you'll meet all of the men in Kane and Ian's army regiment and discover their unusual beliefs on marriage. Read the entire series to follow along as the men, two or three at a time, claim their brides. Bridgewater: Where ménage meets marriage.

I like a good ménage romance just as much as the next dirty girl…but Their Kidnapped Bride just didn’t do it for me.

I had an issue with the most of the story, to be honest. The whole reason her step-brother sold her was…pretty much BS and made no sense that he would sell her into a brothel – he could have just had her locked up as insane or married off to a friend.

Then we get to the virgin sale. Ok. I’ll buy this…but I was done when we finally get to the husbands home and we learn how…exhibitionistic and…forcibly open about sexual matters the Ian, Kent and their men are. I was done. I am far from an exhibitionist and I was made very, very uncomfortable with the whole situation. I do believe that what happens between people in a relationship should stay between those people…it is not for public consumption. I feel its different if ALL parties involved are into that kink (exhibitionism) but to force someone to do it is not cool.

And one of the worst pieces for me was Ian with his atrocious forced “Scottish/Irish brogue” I was pretty close to being done. All the “ye ken” and other assaults to the reading eyes were killing me.
