Product Description

From the Author

The Highwayman Who Stole My Heart
Writing HEATHER AND VELVET was one of those purely joyous experiences that only comes along a few times in an author's career. Sebastian Kerr, the notorious highwayman who had once been an abused, frightened little boy not only stole Prudence's heart, but mine as well. I also loved creating a heroine who considered herself "homely", until she learned to look at herself through Sebastian's loving eyes. I hope you'll enjoy getting to know them as much as I did.

This has to be my favorite book of all time. It has been read so many times that I am afraid the binding is going to fall to pieces!
The author has created incredible characters in an story that you will not be able to put down, short of a natural disaster. And even then you might cling to the book as the tidal wave whisks you away!
Prudence is an intelligent young woman, who lives with a ever-marrying aunt but spends most of the time reading in the library. When rescuing her kitten from a severe storm she meets an injured highway man whom she helps to safety.
From the very beginning the sparks fly between Prudence and her highwayman, although both know they will likely never see each other again. Prudence would never betray Sebastion and everything she does she truly feels is for the best for him.
You have to give this book a try and I know you won't regret it. It really is a classic and one that will be continued to be read till the pages fall to pieces.

Prudence Walker's life will never be the same after she meets a masked highwayman one dark and stormy night on a lonely road. Prudence Walker's life will never be the same after she meets Sebastian Kerr, her aunt's fiance'. Once she realizes the highwayman and her aunt's fiance' are one and the same, the real adventure begins, and love weaves it's magical web around the two of them. This book launched me into the world of historical romance.

The cover is not the BEST part of this book, it is the worst!

This book is full of intrigue, love, laughter and adventure, culminating in a happy ending. What more could you want? The Author has a great imagination and wonderful sense of the ridiculous that I find so enjoyable that I could not put this book down until I had finished the last word. It was deeper than that though, with two people who had been hurt in the past and that took this book on a deeper level than just a 'Bodice Ripper'.

I have re-read the Reviews and the detractors are few, so I would urge others to go with the majority and ignore the cover, I didn't like the sooty haired (he wasn't) smooth chested muscleman (he wasn't) on the cover, that I think has been used before on another book.

So, read the Positives and take a chance. I did, and I loved it!!

Just remembered the other cover, it was Prince of Midnight by Laura Kinsale, they just turned it around and stuck a female on the saddle in front of him!!!!

This novel was written with more skill than the average romantic novel. There is also a proper cohesive plot, and the novelist has taken note of the history of the period and used it to strengthen the story not to detract from it. (Johanna Lindsay take note). Prudence is a delightful intelligent heroine, and Sebastian the type of caring male it is all too difficult to find in real life. The minor characters, especially Jamie and Fish are great fun and worthy of their place in this novel.

I read this when we were snowed in for a week, and did find it quite diverting! To be honest, the picture on the front cover is the best thing about this book, but it will keep you entertained for a couple of days.

"Sebastian" ( typical Scots name there!) is really a Highland Laird, but he is currently working as a highwayman in the North of England. Here he meets the quirky Prudence and the rest of the book describes the way their lives keep weaving into each other. Every time they meet they seem to end up snogging, and finally they go the whole way. Cue lots of "her secret valley engulfed the length of his ardour" type comments! (That's NOT a direct quote, but you get the idea......).

Prudence is quite a well-drawn character, and the book is quite amusingly written. However, the plot meanders through endless loops with names and places becoming very confusing. All becomes clear in the end, but it takes a while to get there.

If you enjoy this type of bodice ripper yarn, no doubt you will love "Heather and Velvet"!

"The Rogue's Kiss" by Emily Bascom is a far more convincing highwayman tale!

I read continuously so I find it impossible to keep all the books I "like." But from the first chapter Medeiros captures your attention and your heart. I feel in love with Prudence and Sebastain. I have since read all her books to date, but this one holds a special place on my bookshelf.
