The year is 1590. She had wild black hair and topaz-coloured eyes, and a power over men which she scarcely understood. When she left her home in Welsh mountains for the prospect of gold and a silken gown in London, one man said that she was of those who carry their fate in their eyes.

At last! It took me three agonizingly long days to get a chance to read the new series I picked up. I had to finish another book first - grrr.

I absolutely loved this series. Although they were definitely hard to find, they were worth the search. My mom loved these books when she was my age and they were a fun, historical read. I know I'll keep these and reread them when I need something familiar and historical!

I read this series of books back when they were new in the 70's and I loved them then. I'm afraid if I found them again and reread them this many years later, I wouldn't enjoy them and it would spoil the childhood memory. If I run across a copy, I might give it a reread.

This was a well written story that sets up a series. A look at the lengths a woman will go to to enact revenge on her lover. A little creepy in parts but worth reading.
