    20. 4 stars Equal parts suspense and drama, The Chase is a slow burn romance that has the reader turning page after page eager to find out what happens next

    21. This was a quick read that gave the reader a sweet romance and a happy ever after to dream about I enjoyed the mystery of why the heroine was in the situation she found herself, and Sara Portman did a great job keeping me on the edge of my seat trying to figure it out Each time I thought I knew what happened, she would throw in another clue that would have me spinning off in another direction entirely Once I learned the reality of the situation, it was so different and intriguing that I found my [...]

    23. This was a cute, stand alone story that I believe will be enjoyed by those who enjoy historical romances with strong characters I enjoyed both of these characters, even if there were times I wanted to smack them Julianna was head strong, although emotionally scarred by the acts of her cruel father While I found it admirable that she set off alone to claim her inheritance and start a life of her own, it was obvious that she had no idea how the world works Especially towards women during that time [...]

    24. I thoroughly enjoy Ms Portman s books and The Chase does not disappoint Michael Rosevear was born on the wrong side of the blanket and even though he is a recognized son, he is not close to his father He manages a distant estate in Yorkshire, but must make his way to London when he is summoned by his father who has found a bride for him If Michael wants the estate to finally be his, he must do as he is told Juliana Crawford is running away from an abusive father and begs a ride to London from Mi [...]

    26. I really hate seeing this series end because I have loved every book It is difficult to choose but I think that this is my favorite I loved both characters and their chemistry was incredible I cannot wait to see what Sara Portman does next and, whatever it is, I will be first in line to buy it.

    27. I must say I loved this one than the first 2 books I loved the mystery that was there during Michael and Juliana s first introduction I loved how the pace was quick and that even when it should have seemed impossible for them to fall in love at such a short time, they were still grounded in reality and yes they did fall in love Michael s unexplained protectiveness of Juliana was beautiful and it was also beautiful how Sara Portman described Juliana s innate fear yet at how she appeared and rema [...]

    28. Historical romance Could be read as standalone As in books before Sara Portman writes well and engaging Never a dull moment I love the pace of the book The leading couple is great, together and separate they are very interesting I am not in love with this book but I find it very special in entire series Maybe because background of the hero and heroine which is very humble and filled with solitude and abandonment So I feel for them and cheer for them And I love brave heroines in this and previous [...]

    29. Michael Rosevear and Juliana Crawford have each faced deep hurt from their fathers Although the pain was very different for each of them, both survived by learning to depend only on themselves Fate brings these two vulnerable, yet strong people together Fate also brings danger You will love this touching tale of two similar hearts who have the chance to experience something they never thought possible Can they face the danger and then find a way to be together Once again, Ms Portman weaves a won [...]

    30. very good finish to the brides of beadwell series though this can be read as a standalone, I think I liked both Juliana and Michael and their story somehow, both a lot and not all that much seems to happen over the course of the several days in which this story takes place but ultimately, an enjoyable read.
