Cataromance awarded this book 4 and a half stars, saying:
"Skillfully intertwining wicked wit and delicious humour with heartwarming pathos and nail-biting drama, Captain Corcoran's Hoyden Bride is a terrific Regency tale fans of historical romance are sure to love. Funny, tender, suspenseful and wonderfuly romantic, it's impossible not to love feisty Aimee, the charismatic Captain Corcoran and the eccentric cast of supporting characters that people this first-class Regency romance!"
...I'm glad I read it because I adored this book! From the moment our very scarred hero meets our emotionally abused heroine I couldn't stop turning pages and spent a sleepless night finishing it...
