WOW! A great book! I don't know why it has low ratings, but this one was a very good read...I cried like crazy and it was just bittersweet...I loved the tortured heroine and the tortured hero. The heroine is a true plain jane and seeing her fight for love was just beautiful;)
The hero managed to redeem himself and I can see why he acted the way he did, even when at times I thought that he was a bit harsh...The ending was just beautiful, though I would have loved a n epilogue;)

The plot is very int...more

Stealing Heaven by Kimberly Cates

I enjoyed this story.

The description of the book I am listing below is from the back jacket of the book. I'm adding it because I believe the one on the Goodreads page does not depict this story.

A rakehell. A scoundrel. Sir Aidan Kane was both and not the sensitive, lonely widower Norah Linton had expected to find. She had been tricked into coming to Castle Rathcannon by letters actually penned by Cassandra, Aidan's high-spirited daughter. Cass, as beautiful as a...more
Apparently I am forever plagued with giving Kimberley Cates 3 stars on what could otherwise be a 5 star read.

Pourquoi 4 étoiles?
Je suis d'accord: l'éhroîne est nian-nian à mourir. Le héros en fait trop. La fille du héros est un peste: c'est très, très téléphoné comme histoire. Mais bon... Il est de ce livres sur lesquels on peut compter. Ils ne peuvent décevoir car tout s'y retrouve: un héros rassurant, une héroïne follement amoureuse, une situation conflictuelle mais avec une jolie fin. Oui, peut-être parce que ce qui fait le charme de ce livre, c'est qu'il fait partie de ceux qu'on considère comme un...more

I rarely will not finish a book, but this one just didn't do it for me and life is too short to finish a book that I do not love. The romance was just too much - I want more depth to my plots. Perhaps I need to stick to romances with a paranormal, suspense or comedy angle to them in the future.

Aaaargh!!! Did not finish. The purple prose, the DRAHMAH, the stereotypical "gypsies", the revenge plot, the evil stepfather, the tortured hero, the ancient curse - all just too too much!
