Product Description

Book Description

The concluding novel in a brand new trilogy, linked to the popular Cynster series, by the reigning queen of historical romance: Stephanie Laurens

Product Description

ANGELICA CYNSTER is certain she'll recognise the love of her life at first sight. When her eyes meet those of a mysterious nobleman across a candlelit ballroom, and her pulse begins to quicken, she knows beyond doubt that he's the one.

But her heart is soon pounding for an entirely different reason, when this same man abducts her, whisking her out of London; into the wild and untamed Scottish highlands. Angelica had always considered herself an expert in the art of assessing gentlemen - could she have really been so wrong?

The eighth Earl of Glencrae has no choice but to kidnap Angelica. To save his castle and his clan, he must persuade her to assist him - and he's prepared to offer marriage to seal the deal...

3.0 out of 5 stars Mostly satisfying 10 Feb 2012
I found this book equally enjoyable to 'In Pursuit of Eliza Cynster', yet very different. What I like about these romances is that so much time is taken over the hero and heroines relationship. The action never takes centre stage to the couple getting to know each other - which basically is what I'm in for. I also especially enjoyed the Scottish setting in this one. There might be a little too much explanation and speculation, which sometimes get boring. As someone else said, Laurens should 'show' rather than 'tell' more.
Oh, and sorry for being crude, but has anyone else wondered why these girls don't get pregnant?! I know it's not realism, but still!

Anyway, overall, a satisfying and sexy romance!

4.0 out of 5 stars Conclusion to the "Cynster Sisters" trilogy 13 Feb 2012
By Marshall Lord TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is the conclusion of the latest trilogy in the "Bar Cynster" series, a story in three volumes set in 1829 which features three sisters, Heather, Eliza and Angelica Cynster. It is essential to read these three books in the correct sequence, which is

1) "Viscount Breckenridge To The Rescue" (Heather)
2) "In Pursuit Of Eliza Cynster," and
3) This book, "The capture of the Earl of Glencrae" (Angelica.)

The main story arc linking these three books finishes in this one, but two more novels, linked to this trilogy by a special necklace, are due to be published in 2013. During "Viscount Breckenridge to the rescue" her aunt Catriona gives Heather Cynster a necklace, known as "the Lady's Jewel." We were told that this necklace will help each lady who wears it find her "hero" e.g. the love of her life, and that it will pass in sequence from Heather Cynster to her sisters Eliza and then Angelica, and then to their cousins Henrietta and Mary. During this trilogy each of the sisters in turn wears the jewel during her own book. In the epilogue of this novel Angelica passes it to Henrietta. Henrietta and her sister Mary will have their turn wearing this necklace in the following novels due to come out next year (2013):

4) "And Then She Fell: Number 4 in series (Cynster Sisters)" and
5) "The Taming of Ryder Cavanaugh: Number 5 in series (Cynster Sisters).

4.0 out of 5 stars Alls Well That Ends Well 24 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the final book detailing the kidnappping of the three Cynster sisters, Heather, Eliza and Angelica. In this volume, the reasons why and who is behind their problems is revealed. After explaining why, Angelica agrees to help her so called kidnapper, known to the Cynsters as The Laird.

He explains that he is being blackmailed and the price to be paid is the disgrace of any one of the sisters. It all goes back to Cecila Cynster when she made her comeout many years before. Of course there is a twist, The Laird then discovers that not only his mother, but the head of a fueding clan is out to distroy him and his people for their own ends.

Naturally the male Cynsters eventually find them, just as things come to a head with two deaths and of course three marriages.

With the necklace passed on to Henrietta, there are still a couple of stories to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Satisfying Ending to the Trilogy 12 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I'd rate this as the best book out of the recent trilogy, and a return to form after the disappointment of In Pusuit of Eliza Cyster.
Still not a patch on the original Cynster novels though!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely 9 Feb 2012
By Phie
I love Stephanie Laurens!

Yet again has she produced a story that makes you smile, laugh and roll your eyes in frustration. :) I did not intend to purchase this book. It just happened. But I am very glad I did.

The characters are lovely. Angelica is a wonderfully open and manupulative character, and although she sometimes acts very young despite the claims that she is so mature, she is self-confident and assertive enough to deal with a character the reader knows a little about but has already gathered to be a protective, stubborn and inteligent man.

It is not only the perfect ending to the trilogy (I hope the Cynster family will continue to recieve stories, especially Henrietta and Mary, who are mentioned but not really present in this trilogy) but it also fits in very well with the other Cynister books. I truly enjoyed it, and had to read it in one go.

My only concern was the slightly random explenation of the ending and the rather abrupt solution to all of the problems. I'm considering these points cliffhangers for now, and hope to find the reason for them in the next stroies.
