Artane...a majestic keep on the edge of the sea.

Artane...the foster home of Anne of Fenwyck and the legacy of Robin de Piaget.

Warring had kept Robin far from home for so long, Anne had all but given up hope he would ever return. But now Robin has returned to Artane--to the enchanting young woman who leaves him breathless with longing ... and to a treachery that places them both in terrible danger. Then as the past threatens their future, he realizes that he wants nothing more than to have her--forever...

There are several different ways to approach these intertwining series (Kurland's Two Series: De Piaget & The MacLeods). We have decided to go by this one, suggested by
The Window Seat: List of Books (Under spoiler to save space.)
(view spoiler)
We are continuing this series in February. This one is a combination of Medieval Romances and Time Travel. (Some books will not have the Time Travel element.)

Please join us, or just stop in and say, "Hi!" or tell us which cover you prefer. But...

Expect Spoilers!

Please be aware that #1-Another Chance to Dream {Rhys and Gwen's story} and #2-If I Had You {Robin and Anne's story} can be found together as a 2:1 in A Time for Love.

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Lisa Kay’s Questions for If I Had You “Buddy Read”: Prologue – Chapter Six

1. I was worried at the start of the Prologue – as I had a lump in my throat for little Anne of Fenwyck. (All but non-existent medical care back then – ugh! Makes me want to take a time-machine back and fit her leg and her pain.) Luckily, I’ve gotten over it – mostly – and I’m enjoying this one more than the first. You?

2. Robin of Artane seems set to – sometimes – deny and struggle with his feelings for Anne. Alas, they can’t all be written as Rhys. **sigh** Loved Robin’s interactions with his brother, Nicholas, though. Especially with regards to Anne. LOL! I guess the real question is, “Will we discovery his true paternity in this book?”

3. What do you think of Anne’s relationship with her father, Geoffrey? My heart ached for Anne overhearing her father and Rhys talking in Rhys’ solar. Rhys is certainly more of a father-figure. Comments.

4. I was getting a little confused with Anne’s “home.” But I get it now; it is the home of her heart: Artane. Comments.

5. Man-oh-man! That Baldwin is a piece of work. Who do you worry about more, him or Edith? Or are they equally bad? What does Edith want more, Robin or Artane?

6. Now that we’re getting to know them a bit, of all the De Piaget’s off-spring, whose story are you looking for the most?

7. Oh! What did you think of Robin and Anne’s reunion! I wanted to knock their heads together. And then THAT KISS! What?! Me thinks Nick is pushing Robin’s button – Big Time – as only a brother can. Comments.

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 6062 comments Susan's answers to Lisa Kay’s Questions for If I Had You “Buddy Read”: Prologue – Chapter Six

1. I was worried at the start of the Prologue – as I had a lump in my throat for little Anne of Fenwyck. (All but non-existent medical care back then – ugh! Makes me want to take a time-machine back and fit her leg and her pain.) Luckily, I’ve gotten over it – mostly – and I’m enjoying this one more than the first. You?I did feel horrible for little Anne. I'm surprised Rhys allowed Baldwin to treat her so blindly as often as he did. I don't know that I like this more than the first. I'd say equal.

2. Robin of Artane seems set to – sometimes – deny and struggle with his feelings for Anne. Alas, they can’t all be written as Rhys. **sigh** Loved Robin’s interactions with his brother, Nicholas, though. Especially with regards to Anne. LOL! I guess the real question is, “Will we discovery his true paternity in this book?”I do love Nicholas and Robin together. Nicky is kind of stealing the spotlight for me lol and YES!!! I'm dying to know paternity!! Robin and Nicholas are starting to look alike. I need to know!

3. What do you think of Anne’s relationship with her father, Geoffrey? My heart ached for Anne overhearing her father and Rhys talking in Rhys’ solar. Rhys is certainly more of a father-figure. Comments.shame on Geoffrey.

4. I was getting a little confused with Anne’s “home.” But I get it now; it is the home of her heart: Artane. Comments.I she thinks of Artane as her home. Honestly, why shouldn't she? She's spent most of her life there and her dad remarried and didn't bring her home.

5. Man-oh-man! That Baldwin is a piece of work. Who do you worry about more, him or Edith? Or are they equally bad? What does Edith want more, Robin or Artane?I'm more concerned about Edith. She's sneaky. I think she wants Artane Moore than she wants Robin.

6. Now that we’re getting to know them a bit, of all the De Piaget’s off-spring, whose story are you looking for the most?Nicholas

7. Oh! What did you think of Robin and Anne’s reunion! I wanted to knock their heads together. And then THAT KISS! What?! Me thinks Nick is pushing Robin’s button – Big Time – as only a brother can. Comments.Robin and Anne are driving me a little crazy. I do think Nick is doing what he's doing on purpose to get Robin to make a move.

Makes me want to take a time-machine back and fit her leg and her pain.) Luckily, I’ve gotten over it – mostly – and I’m enjoying this one more than the first. You?

I didn't finish the first book, but I think that was because of the mood I was in rather than the book. I have liked this one so far, and glad I decided to read it.

2. Robin of Artane seems set to – sometimes – deny and struggle with his feelings for Anne. Alas, they can’t all be written as Rhys. **sigh** Loved Robin’s interactions with his brother, Nicholas, though. Especially with regards to Anne. LOL! I guess the real question is, “Will we discovery his true paternity in this book?”

I'm quite a bit ahead with my reading, so I'll save my comments for later.

3. What do you think of Anne’s relationship with her father, Geoffrey? My heart ached for Anne overhearing her father and Rhys talking in Rhys’ solar. Rhys is certainly more of a father-figure. Comments.

I believe Rhys has been much more a father to Anne than Geoffrey.

4. I was getting a little confused with Anne’s “home.” But I get it now; it is the home of her heart: Artane. Comments.

I think Anne looks at Artane as home because that is where she has been happiest.

5. Man-oh-man! That Baldwin is a piece of work. Who do you worry about more, him or Edith? Or are they equally bad? What does Edith want more, Robin or Artane?

I think Edith is more concerning because she is smarter than Baldwin. Baldwin can be pretty dangerous though, because he acts without thinking and is ruled by emotions. I think Edith wants Artane and Robin is just a means get it.

6. Now that we’re getting to know them a bit, of all the De Piaget’s off-spring, whose story are you looking for the most?

I want to read Nicholas' story. (I don't think I've read it before, and if I did I don't remember it!)


7. Oh! What did you think of Robin and Anne’s reunion! I wanted to knock their heads together. And then THAT KISS! What?! Me thinks Nick is pushing Robin’s button – Big Time – as only a brother can. Comments.

The reunion was interesting, but it showed how awkward they feel about each other. I love Nicholas, and I think he is just trying to give Robin a push.

1. I was worried at the start of the Prologue – as I had a lump in my throat for little Anne of Fenwyck. (All but non-existent medical care back then – ugh! Makes me want to take a time-machine back and fit her leg and her pain.) Luckily, I’ve gotten over it – mostly – and I’m enjoying this one more than the first. You? I don't seem to respond the same way to stuff like this. It didn't really affect me one way or another, except that it was just part of the story. I feel like I'm missing some empathy gene!

2. Robin of Artane seems set to – sometimes – deny and struggle with his feelings for Anne. Alas, they can’t all be written as Rhys. **sigh** Loved Robin’s interactions with his brother, Nicholas, though. Especially with regards to Anne. LOL! I guess the real question is, “Will we discovery his true paternity in this book?”Love the interaction between Nicholas and Robin. I want to wack Robin over the head so I totally understand why Nick wants to.

3. What do you think of Anne’s relationship with her father, Geoffrey? My heart ached for Anne overhearing her father and Rhys talking in Rhys’ solar. Rhys is certainly more of a father-figure. Comments. Geoffrey is an ass.

4. I was getting a little confused with Anne’s “home.” But I get it now; it is the home of her heart: Artane. Comments. I want to go to Artane. I love how it sounds.

5. Man-oh-man! That Baldwin is a piece of work. Who do you worry about more, him or Edith? Or are they equally bad? What does Edith want more, Robin or Artane?They are creepy, scary bad. I don't like either one of them.

6. Now that we’re getting to know them a bit, of all the De Piaget’s off-spring, whose story are you looking for the most? I remember enjoying them all, but I like Amanda's.

7. Oh! What did you think of Robin and Anne’s reunion! I wanted to knock their heads together. And then THAT KISS! What?! Me thinks Nick is pushing Robin’s button – Big Time – as only a brother can. Comments. Good for Nick! Maybe it will help Anne get over her low self esteem issues over how she looks. But this rings so true - with 3 daughters - how one perceives one's looks as a teenager carries over until adulthood.

10. Why wouldn't Anne tell anyone of her suspicions about someone harming her? Thank heaven Robin figured it out.

Lisa Kay- Hope you got good news at the tax man!


8. Robin has a ring for Anne! Did that surprise you as much as it did me?

I was surprised about the ring, and how much thought he put into it

9. Maude, Edith and Baldwin. Creepsters Extraordinaire. Maude didn't follow directions and suffered consequences. What do you think Edith will do to her? What do you think of Baldwin's reaction?

I'll comment later

10. Why wouldn't Anne tell anyone of her suspicions about someone harming her? Thank heaven Robin figured it out.

I think Anne was so unsure about Robin's feelings for her, that she didn't want to tell him. Also, I think she was trying to appear as strong instead of weak in front of him.

11. Is Robin's stiffness toward getting on your nerves? I kind of wanted to tAke the mail head thing and attack him with it for his treatment of Anne.

I thought Robin's behavior toward Anne was pretty stiff throughout the book- I did want to smack him upside his head a few times.

Susan- Isabelle does get a book- it's a new release Dreams of Lilacs that comes out April 29

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 845 comments Sorry I've been MIA. Shreveport had an ice storm and we've been without power for 24 hours. It's been a little crazy! But I did finish the book, in the dark huddled under 14 blankets. Thank God for my android tablet!
I will post questions for Chapter 16-22 soon.

Here are my answers to your questions, Susan(susayq).

8. I was pretty surprised, but it's nice to see how much he loves her. He hides his heart so well. I remember thinking in the first book that all the confusion over his father would affect him and it has.

9.Those three are just seriously nasty. Maude is nuts and the other two are evil.

10. Yes, Robin's thickheadedness drives me crazy, but I still like him so much. He's so real. And Anne seems able to handle him.


~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 845 comments Questions for Chapters 16-22

12. What a surprising twist! Are you surprised with how Robin decides to keep Anne safe? And are you surprised at how Nick reacts?

13. Hopefully being locked together in a room will get these two stubborn people talking. Do you have any hope for them at this point?

14. Robin is very slowly opening up to Anne. He was so traumatized by what happened to him that it has colored all his actions with Anne since then. Why do you think he was so affected?

15. What do you think of Nick's ideas for how Rob should woo her? Do you like to be wooed? I just like the sound of the word "woo". Makes me happy to say it! Do you think he does a good job of "wooing" her?

12. What a surprising twist! Are you surprised with how Robin decides to keep Anne safe? And are you surprised at how Nick reacts?it was a twist! I am surprised by nicks reaction. Does he really love her?

13. Hopefully being locked together in a room will get these two stubborn people talking. Do you have any hope for them at this point? not really lol

14. Robin is very slowly opening up to Anne. He was so traumatized by what happened to him that it has colored all his actions with Anne since then. Why do you think he was so affected? I'm guessing it was his pride. Since he was always trying to impress Rhys, he didn't want anyone to know about this. It made him try harder.

15. What do you think of Nick's ideas for how Rob should woo her? Do you like to be wooed? I just like the sound of the word "woo". Makes me happy to say it! Do you think he does a good job of "wooing" her? I think he's doing a good job. If only he could be nicer all the time. I like the word woo also :)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Susan’s Questions & Lisa Kay’s Answers for Chapters 6-15

8. Robin has a ring for Anne! Did that surprise you as much as it did me?
Oh, yes. It definitely surprised me. And it is a pretty significant stone, too. I can understand why he didn’t tell Nick; he’d tease him mercilessly; not that he isn’t already!

9. Maude, Edith and Baldwin. Creepsters Extraordinaire. Maude didn't follow directions and suffered consequences. What do you think Edith will do to her? What do you think of Baldwin's reaction?
Very creepy creepsters. Edith is so complex. She didn’t want Maude beaten, but she got her point across to Maude that she’d kill her quick, instead.

10. Why wouldn't Anne tell anyone of her suspicions about someone harming her? Thank heaven Robin figured it out.
Hmmm… I not sure, especially after Stephen’s death. She definitely should have spoken up then. Maybe she was still in a state of shock, or maybe she couldn’t see herself as the center of attention – even if it was a murderous one. Or maybe she really believed the wine could have been meant for someone else. Points for Robin! Although, I felt sorry for Sir Richard being sent to the dungeon. Still, a loosened mace head could have injured anyone, so that was a terrible plan.

11. Is Robin's stiffness toward getting on your nerves? I kind of wanted to take the mail head thing and attack him with it for his treatment of Anne.
Yes! These two are something else. I couldn’t believe Robin didn’t help her up there before she started to crawl. He sure wasn’t thinking about how much he might have knocked the wind out of her sails. Idiot. Points taken away.

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 845 comments I forgot to answer #10. Anne is so used to keeping everything to herself. So it didn't really surprise me that she kept her suspicions to herself. Plus it sounds so crazy. I wouldn't be in any great hurry to tell someone that I thought I was being targeted. Most people would try and talk you out of your feelings. I'm happy that Robin saw it so quickly. He gets points there.

Judy Judy's answers to Leslie's questions

Questions for Chapters 16-22

12. What a surprising twist! Are you surprised with how Robin decides to keep Anne safe? And are you surprised at how Nick reacts?

I was surprised at his method to keep her safe. I wasn't surprised by Nick's reaction, but I thought he was thinking it would end badly for Anne's reputation.

13. Hopefully being locked together in a room will get these two stubborn people talking. Do you have any hope for them at this point?

I think it took a long time for them to trust each other enough to actually talk about things.

14. Robin is very slowly opening up to Anne. He was so traumatized by what happened to him that it has colored all his actions with Anne since then. Why do you think he was so affected?

I agree with Susan, I think it was Robin's pride that got in the way. Although I think he was a product of his time and believed that his honor and ability to defend those he loved are important to him.

15. What do you think of Nick's ideas for how Rob should woo her? Do you like to be wooed? I just like the sound of the word "woo". Makes me happy to say it! Do you think he does a good job of "wooing" her?

Woo! Woo! LOL! I think Nick had some good suggestions in the wooing department, but Robin needs to approach it in his own way, otherwise it won't feel real to Anne.
