Fiery tale of love -- Very highly recommended 28 July 2001
By C. Penn - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lovers of the fiercely tempered, highly spirited Lady Cat of DESTINY'S LADY will be equally pleased with her outspoken, independent daughter Diana in ENEMIES OF THE HEART. Once again Susan Grace creates a fiery tale of love with the blazing passion and spirit that marks all of her heroines.
Stephen Morgan was desperate, imploring Diana Grayson to lend him sufficient funds to pay a gambling debt. Rather than simply lending him the money, however, Diana insists upon dressing as a man and accompanying him to Satan's Pleasures, a gambling establishment in a dangerous part of town. There she not only manages to help him pay the debt, but also pickpockets the money right back again. Spurned would-be-suitor Marchioness Renwick, Barclay Evanston, recognizes Diana, despite the wig, beard and breeches. Taking advantage of the chaos created by the brawl that results from the missing money, Barclay determines to make Diana his wife, willing or not.
More than an act of defiance, Diana's refusal to marry comes from her irritation that once she came of age and had control of her own money, she must still yield to the dictates of society. Her frustration with society's rules led to her masquerade as a man, and ultimately to the dilemma that she now faces. He threatens to destroy Diana's reputation with the scandalous rumor that she was at Satan's Pleasure plying her wares. And if he rapes her, society will instantly forgive the dead if he marries her while she would be ruined regardless of her innocence in the act. In self-defense, Diana shots and kills Barclay. Faced with scandal of the worst magnitude, Diana flees Satan's Pleasures. Unfortunately, she leaves her beard behind.
Diana flees town to visit her Uncle and family, hoping no one connects her to Barclay's death. In addition, she arranges to have her new horse Thor delivered to her uncle's. Thor had demonstrated quite a temper tantrum just before she bought him at action. Jared Devlin had calmed him, and Diana hopes to have him assist her training of the spirited animal. An Irishman, Devlin has little patience for the aristocracy, and Diana plans to hide the fact that her father is an earl. Diana plans to use Thor to start her horse breeding business; the fact that she finds him attractive is simply coincidence, of course.
Jared isn't comfortable being included in family dinners every night, but he accepts the courtesy. Seeing the Prescotts with their children reminds him of everything he lost in Ireland. He blames himself for the deaths in his family. And when he's asked to help with Thor's training, he must work to control his snicker. Jared underestimates the kind of woman who would enter into the horse business. That is, until he meets her. He soon finds that the spirited woman who wears breeches for horse training will capture his imagination, though he believes she can never be his. Indeed, many secrets will come to light for both of them, if they wish to be together.
Once again Susan Grace creates a marvelous, passionate romance with a fast paced, convincing plot. Indeed, with each novel Grace's voice gains an even more powerful voice in the historical romance genre. Her tales of spirited heroines and lusty men make for hours of reading pleasure. Very highly recommended.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Begins in London, 1825. Lady Diana Grayson was the daughter of the Earl of Foxwood. When her friend, Stephen, helped her sneak into Satan's Pleasures for adventure (it was unwillingly done by him), she was cornered alone by the Marchioness Renwick, Barclay Evanston. Barclay had been trying to force Diana into marriage for some time now. Seeing her in a gaming den was the perfect opportunity for him to try again. While defending herself she shot him and thought him dead.
Diana "Ana" went to spend time with her Uncle Justin and Aunt Victoria at the Westlake Stables while things cooled down. She took along the new stallion she had purchased recently to begin her own horse breeding facility. There she met Jared Devlin!
Jared was the manager. He was so great with animals that one would believe he actually spoke to them! However, due to how his family in Ireland had been treated, he detested anyone with a title, with Justin being the only exception. Knowing that, Ana convinced everyone not to mention her title, so Jared would help her train her stallion. Ana and Justin ended up falling in love.
News came to Jared from Ireland that his brother, Ronan, was accused of attempting to murder a magistrate. Due to a misplaced letter, no one knew why Jared suddenly disappeared. When Barclay turned out to be hunting Ana, she went to the west coast of Ireland, to her mother's mountain top estate, Fellsmere. Fate had Ana and Jared teaming up to save Ronan, but at high cost!
***** If you followed this series, you know Ana's mother was the famous Lady Cat: smuggler, pirate, et all. Having such parents, they simply must show up for the conclusion of the saga, right? Of course! And being raised by them, Ana knows many things normal ladies never dreamed of! Then there is the author, Susan Grace. Everyone who has ever read any of her books knows that there is more going on than I reveal in the synopsis! Need I say more? I didn't think so. Spectacular series! Recommended. *****

Hate to rain on the parade but...... 19 Oct. 2004
By stacey renee - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Perhaps having just read the incredible 'destiny's lady' and 'forever and beyond' made it impossible to for this sequel about daughter diana to live up to my expectations. I read 1/3rd of this book and gave it up. The story line is nothing unusual and diana is fairly shallow, much into getting her own way in everything. After very brief interaction diana and jared declare undying love.....Actually Jared's first words (after diana throws herself at him) are things like 'my heart, my love, etc...'. Too much, too soon and boring.......The best part may have come later but I'll never know...but susan grace is a talent to watch and I'll try another of her sequels to lady cat soon.............
Riveting...touching...a must read!! 28 Oct. 2001

Susan Grace once again captured this reader right from the beginning! This captivating story revolves around Diana [Ana}, Catherine and Miles fiesty daughter and twin to James! I thoroughly enjoyed this fast moving story! Diana certainly is every bit her mothers' daughter!! I only hope that Ms. Grace will somehow be able to expand beyond the six books that she initially slated for this series!
