Rebecca Brandewyne is yet another author, along with Shirlee Busbee, who inexplicably escaped my first bodice-ripper reading binge back in high school. Having read this book, I have a feeling that I would have enjoyed it just as much then as I did now, because it is written in a way that appeals to every sweeping, romantic notion a girl can have. If read in the right frame of mind, it can be a hell of a ride.

The plot is basically "Romeo and Juliet in Scotland." Mary Carmichael and Hunter MacBeth

I understand the few low reviews on this book are trying to make a point, but I think they are unfair to both the author and the romance. Read on for the real scope.

I read Rebecca Brandewyne's historical romance for her ability to sweep me away to another time and place and to create a world I feel a part of...and for her wonderful stories of a love that overcomes great obstacles to endure. Forever My Love does all that, but there are some disturbing elements with this one that I feel constraine

A classic example of the older classic bodice rippers.

Recommends it for: people who want to read Excellent and Epic Historical Romance
This novel is an example of Historical Romance done properly. It offers a bit of everything. A mystery that only resolves at the end of the book, conflict, travel, star-crossed lovers (yes lovers.. there are more than one set in this) and so on. Admittedly it is a bodice-ripper and while the basic historical framework is intact the author mentions in her note that she changed what she needed and wanted to to fit the story. The thing is the story is so engrossing you really don't notice. The key ...more

One of the Best Historical Romances ever written. This one is not PC by any of today's standard so be forwarned. Violence, bloodshed, torture and yes, even wife-beating occur in this detailed and passionate story of star-crossed lovers. I Recommend this book for all those fans of Scotland and Highlanders.

(P) For me, relatively new to the old school historical romance, this was quite an adventure. I really loved reading this book and am glad to have discovered a new author. There were some issues though and that's why I personally gave the 3 star rating.

pro: I very much liked the length of the story and the enormous amounts of 'stuff' happening. Used as I am to the modern, shorter romances (and hating it when they finish all too soon) this was like a breath of fresh air. It took me, in between wo

I would rate this book a 3.5, there were time while reading it that I was thinking a solid 4 star but there were times when I was ready for the book to be over with and felt it was dragging a lot so that is why I dropped it back to the 3 star.

Good strong characters, both the main ones and the supporting characters. Loved the curse and how it played out but there were times when I thought the book could have ended and been just fine rather than throwing in another obstacle for the couple to overc
It is somewhat scary how sometimes you just cannot stop yourself from reading when terrible things happen to nice people. I do not believe the hero, and /the heroine was to weak. I wanted her to be stronger, and I thought the Hero was sometimes not strong enough.

I give it 4 1/2 stars. This was a quality read and much recommended. The end of the book was unexpected for me.

Recommends it for: anyone
Plenty of action and romance between members of fueding clans in 15th century Scotland. Sort of a Scottish Romeo and Juliet with a happy ending.
