God I hate a stupid heroine. First of all the prologue where the h's twin sister comes to her to tell her she is pregnant by a married man. The h is determined to save her sister from their father's wraith by some convoluted story involving the queen a nunnery and a story so farfetched the nuns would have to be drunk on sacramental wine to buy it.

Fast forward to the start of the story. The psycho father is leaving her stranded in a cave with no way out but jumping into the ocean and drowning. He

Who could possibly punish his daughter for disgracing his name by leaving her in a cave with few supplies? 

Lady Rosamond knew her father, John de Warenne, to be unstable.  She had been the strong one, the twin who protected the other.  In this situation, she is doing the same.  Her twin, Loretta, had been secreted away to a convent.  She is enceinte.  If her condition were discovered she would be severely punished by her father and her reputation destroyed.  Rosamond preferred to receive said p

Absolutely loved this book. Read it a part of a novella series and then picked up the extended version once it was released. Eliza Knight never disappoints and although I may say that all the time, its an honest review all the time. She has a way of writing strong heroins that can seem like a damsel in distress yet they do not act whiny and meek. Her heros are always to die for and this one was no different. Its a love story that takes off rather rapidly, but when you read and get to know the ch ...more

“Our lives are made up of so many moments. Some that last hours, days, weeks, and some that are fleeting…It is in those moments that we choose the path we will take. How our lives will be determined. Even if our circumstances feel unchangeable.”

In an effort to protect her twin sister from the wrath of their father, Lady Rosamond takes the blame for an illicit affair. Driven to madness, Lady Rosamond’s father leaves her stranded in a cave high above the ocean shore with little means to care for

Laird of Darkness

The cruelty of the English kings were legendary for their cruel and savage torture. Tiernery McDougal had been imprisoned for 10 years during this time he was tortured almost daily and starved also. Most times when they did give him food he would give most of it to his men who were arrested with him. He still exercised and did his daily training procedures as best as he could do as to not lose his muscle mass and strength. When he was finally released he was not so weak that he

As the responsible one, Lady Rosamond de Warenne took the blame for her sister's actions, knowing that her very unstable father could possibly kill her pregnant twin. Rosamond's punishment was to be abandoned in a cave, far above the sea, with no chance of escape. Tiernay, having been imprisoned by the evil John de Warenne, rescues Rosamond and the adventurous romance begins.This story was brilliantly written. You felt every bit of the angst of the Heroine and the depth of the anger of the Hero. ...more

I was 74% of the way through this book when I had to stop reading and take a shower. in the shower I realized there was no plot to this book. literally none. event happened that were completely unrelated. the "climax" (can we really call it that?) went off without a hitch, with little effort from our hero. don't know anything about the heroine except her father is an asshole.

I can't believe I finished reading this.

For The Bruce

Confined in the Tower of London prison for ten years, a Scotsman finds himself released when his father dies and makes him Laird. On his way home to Scotland, he rescues a young woman imprisoned in a cave, the daughter of his jailer. Are his feelings for her really love, or for revenge against the man who put him in hell? Good story for an afternoon read.

Her writing draws you in. The intense love, hatred, battles keep you on edge and keep you reading. Love that the idea of enemies can form such a powerful bond of love, able to overcome anything! Highly recommend!
