este es el primer libro que leo de la autora y lo cierto es que le di una oportunidad porque, a parte de haberme propuesto "descubrir nuevas" autoras, lo compré por menos de 3 (y por ese precio ni me lo pensé). pues bien, os puedo resumir mi relación con este libro con una sola palabra: pésima.

desde el comienzo de la historia he sentido que todo ocurría de una forma caótica (tanto era así que había partes en la que me perdía). también debo decir que culpa de esto la tiene la traducción, la cual

A wise and sane man married at no earlier than the age of forty and picked a girl no more than eighteen who was healthy as a stoat, a good breeder and malleable as sheep.

This is Knight Winthrop's motto. He's having the time of his life. Well, that was before Mrs. Winthrop, widow of his uncle Tristan came barging on their door, with three children in tow. Suddenly everything is topsy-turvy.

Lily Tremaine, fiancee of Tristan Winthrop, together with Theo, Sam and Laura Beth, devised a plot, so the

I absolutely loved this book!!! I haven't read a book I enjoyed this much in quite a while. This series was an okay series -- the first book was pretty good, but a bit dark, the third book I just didn't like the characters in, but this one is funny, light-hearted, sweet and surprising because I expected more angst than was there.

The children were so captivating. Each was so different, yet each was very endearing and faced up to the uncertainty of their lives with such bravery and heart. They wer

Ok romance. The humour and the kids saved this one. The children were adorable (if a handful), Knight was an incorrigible but funny hero. Lily was actually ok, a lot stronger than I expected.

Lots of eye-rolling. Had forgotten about the old romance tropes of her resisting and him insisting, almost rape, his belief she couldn't possibly be a virgin ...bleh.

Knight Winthrop and Lily Tremaine in the second book of the series. I loved this book and found myself laughing througout the book. This is a romance book but very comical. I really enjoyed the characters in the book; especially Laura Beth the little four year old girl. Lily, one of the main characters was a very beautiful and strong willed lady who was a woman of sustance and good up bringing, whose father lost thier wealth due to gambling. Knight Winthrop is a very weathly gentelman who is a ...more

The book is saved by Lily and the kids, because, honestly, Knight is a jerk. The book stopped making sense about half way through. I had no idea why the characters were getting married. (view spoiler) ...more

Night Shadow by Catherine Coulter is book two of her delightful romance series Night Trilogy. Each book in the trilogy can be read on its own. Each has its own set of Hero's and Heroine's and of course its happy ending.

Knight Winthrop, Viscount Castlerosse, whom we first met in the novel Night Fire, he was Burke Drummond's best friend. Knight is the quintessential Regency bachelor, very happy with his life just the way it is. Then Lily shows up on his doorstep claiming she was betrothed to his

I've read about 1/3 of the book and am really disliking it. It's a huge disappointment because I liked Night Fire, the first in the series. I'm starting to think I've read all the Coulter novels worth reading. Lily (19) is betrothed to Tris, an older man with 3 children (a 9 year-old boy, a 6 year-old boy, and a 4 year-old girl). He's murdered over some illegal business he was doing and she ends up taking the children to his sister's. They're not received well there, so they go to Knight, Tris' ...more

Well it was well written. I enjoyed all the characters, and the children really made the story. But halfway through I could barely finish it. The heroine forgave the hero way way way to quickly for his being such a jerk. A little grovelling and more resistance on her end would be nice. Getting really tired of the "heroine is so overcome by passion she gives in anyway" even if the hero is practically forcing her. But besides that it's a good romance and story.

A este libro le doy una estrella porque no puedo darle una puntuación negativa, si no se la habría dado. Lo compré básicamente por ser un libro excesivamente barato que encontré en Amazon, y pensé "porqué no?" Pues bien, ojalá no lo hubiera comprado, ha sido una lectura pésima, lo acabé por acabarlo, pero es una historia mala, mal contada y muy mal desarrollada. Nunca más repetiré con esta autora sintiéndolo mucho

Then Lily shows up on his doorstep claiming she was betrothed to his murdered cousin. With her are his cousin's three children. She has no money, nowhere to go. What's even worse—Ugly Arnold is hard on her heels.

Rereading series

I enjoyed re-reading this second book in the series. I really like it when I can follow characters from one book to another. Good reading to occupy the time without straining the brain when you get a nasty cold in London. SO glad I have a kindle!

I love Catherine Coulter's FBI novels and am not a fan of historic fiction particularly romances set back in these distant era's. But this trilogy was a lovely surprise. I was enraptured from the first pages and could hardly put this book down or the other books in this trilogy. The entire trilogy was brilliant I thought, with plenty of steamy romance, some shocking moments, and lots of good story telling.

Catherine Coulter did not disappoint and wove a wonderful story that takes us over three b

Very entertaining

Enjoyed. It is a light read, a nice escape from reality for a little bit. I would recommend this to those who enjoyed the first book in the series.

Although Lily Tremaine doesn't love him, she is engaged to Tristan because she does love his 3 children whom she has been caring for and because her father's death left her penniless. Tristan is murdered and she takes the children back to England to Tristan's sister only to be molested and almost raped by Ugly Arthur, the sister's husband. She and the children decide to seek protection from Tristan's cousin but to tell him she is Tristan's widow hoping that will protect her further than appearin ...more

Nothing better than a reformed rake especially when the heroine beats the bad boy out if him literally. One of my favorite scenes.

Overall Night Shadow by Catherine Coulter was a pretty good book; however, I thought it was a bit too sex oriented. Usually in romance novels I expect the characters to fall in love throughout the whole book. Not just have a lot of sex, and then magically fall in love within the last chapter or two. Other than that I thought it had a good story line, and the children kept the book interesting. All together it wasn't that bad; I would probably read it again.

With her betrothed Tristan murdered, Lily will do anything to stay with his three children. She flees to Tristan's cousin, Knight, posing as Tristan's widow. Knight is thrown by the sudden chaos that his orderly house falls into, as the chaos begins to invade his heart as well.

It starts out so fun and promising, then takes a sharp dive into domineering and accusations of being a whore. Thankfully it never really goes too far, and it comes back up. I used to love this book, and now re-reading it,

Knight Winthrop, Viscount Castlerosse, is a confirmed bachelor whose peaceful life is set on its ear with the arrival of his cousins widow and her three children. Lily was engaged to Knight's cousin Tris when Tris was murdered. She loves the three children and will do anything to stay with them including pretending to be Tris's widow. I spent much of this book extremely angry at the arrogant Knight Winthrop--Love the scene where Lily decks Knight, socks him the belly and coshes him on the head w ...more

Alguien me regalo este libro hace ya casi 4 años, lo recibí, lo agradecí, lo hojee y concluí que no era algo que se me antojara leer, estuvo desde entonces en mi librero. Hace tres días lo rescaté (a falta de otro libro que leer, debo reconocer), justo ahora lo termine y fue una buena sorpresa. Muy rosa, muy amoroso, pero también cómico, los personajes son amigables y fáciles de concebir, no es la mejor lectura que he hecho (está lejos de serlo) pero valió la pena.

I really liked this one, no idea why. I liked Laura Beth and her antics very much, other kids had too much character. I liked Knight in the first novel, so i wanted to peek in his life badly. Lily was strong, sometimes stupid though. Love scenes were hot, but I have no idea why some heroes think that heroine is a harlot, when she is saying and behaving as an innocent ( I think that's why we call them Alpha Jerk Heroes). It had good humour lines.
