Set in the 1600s and revolving around the life of a newly-married couple, this book fits aptly into the genre of "Historical Romance". However, the authors do not limit the story to just that, but have added in delightful elements of suspense, drama, action, feminism, and even a pinch of horror! There are highway robberies, betrayals, disguises, deaths, lovemaking and treasure chests in the same story - so you can g ...more
To me, this was a marvelous story. I loved that Kendra Chase had a mind of her and was strong in character which was against the times in 1600s Scotland and England. Ms. Royal has a solid grip on the lives and times of those 1600s. Her writing is fluid and she does not resort to adding extra descriptions to the setting or cha ...more

The love story of Kendra and Trick. The Chase brothers want Kendra to chose a husband but she refuses to have any of the men her brothers has chosen for her. One Strom day she and Trick are court in his bedroom by her brother and now they much marry. Unknown to her Trick is the Duke of Camberley, she thinks he is a highwayman. Can she find love? Great story.
This novel is a delight! Well-written; interesting characters; great plot, with just enough clean romance to make it really enjoyable. The authors intertwine some rea!!y interesting Scottish culture and English history, too, which had me enthralled. Loved the ending and the epilogue as well. It wasn't rushed, as so many authors tend to do.
Kendra is quite the character. She's an intelligent woman with not much common sense. The author puts her in multiple situations where her emotions get in the way of sound thinking, yet the hero, Trick, loves her because of it. Very good plot and suspense that kept me reading.
I love historical fiction romance. Things were done so differently a few hundred years ago. Strong intelligent women were encouraged to hide their intellect in order to find a husband. Thankfully the author decided to allow her character to be openly intelligent and accepted by her husband as such.
Brother's can be such a pain. They want her to marry and the man they choose is the Highway man. It must be a joke. What is the Duke really up to? The king will not let him confide in his wife and he could loose her. Well written and full of interesting details.
This is a rewrite of a more explicit novel. As such it spends a lot of time focusing on the sex the characters aren't having. I found the actual story line and the historical setting much more interesting. I'm sorry the two themes had to compete. I wish there had been a way to maintain the personal struggles without taking away from the storyline.
It was a nice and clean story. No sex in it. The characters were lovable. What I liked about it is that the chapters were short. But the story overall was great. I would read it again. It also made me want to find out how her brothers fell in love with their spouses.
Thank-you for the sweet romance and fun adventure. Love this series of books and the strong women role models. Love that they are all virtuous and have their own minds.
I enjoyed this book as much as the previous one I read. The historical settings are very good and link well to the actual places themselves. Characters are a delight and develop well as the tale unfolds
