5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Diane E. Griffith on 8 Nov. 2005
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kidnapped and held for ransom, an old tried and true story line for a historical romance. However, Ms Howell fills it in with such wonderful characters and dialog that the book is very fresh and takes on a life of its own. Storm is a vibrant lively self-assured young woman who is willing to stand up for what she believes in and for her friends and family. The Laird's oldest son Travis who desires her but does not understand his growing feelings for her until she leaves him takes her heart as well as her body. Situations intervene and the pair is separate for many months, both longing for each other but sure they cannot be together. However, love and passion triumph in the end and the lovers are reunited. An excellent story, FRESH, and spell binding and, "Vera" worth reading.

This is a reprint of a book called Amber Flame.The story is about a brit called storm eldon who is kidnapped by Travis a scotish borderer. It is linked to a book by hannah howell called a promise of passion which is about one of Travises brothers. The story of Storm and Travis is completely rivetting but if you have a copy of Amber flame, dont get 'his bonnie bride' as it is the same story.

Loved it 1 Sept. 2005
By MAD4ROMBKS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I truly think a person can never go wrong when reading a Hannah Howell book. Her writing is just amazing and she's a talented storyteller.

I first read this book years ago, when I first started reading romance books. At that time it was called AMBER FLAME and it was one of my favorite books by her (one of many!) I don't know why the title was changed when it was reprinted but it's still a wonderful book.

You first meet the heroine, Storm, when she, her brother and cousins were taken hostage by the hero's family when her stepmother decides to go watch the fighting between the English and the Scots. Storm helps patch up a wound that Tavis's father has and with the ransom paid, are able to return home.

Seven years later, Tavis comes upon Storm being attacked by the man her stepmother is trying to force her to marry. She ends up being a hostage again but because her father and brother are away and because she refuses to listen to her stepmother, Storm is actually happy not to return home. While waiting for the ransom to be answered, Tavis gives his word that he won't try to lure Storm to his bed until then. Things change when the reply they get is basically the one Storm knew was coming.

But it's not all smooth sailing for Tavis and Storm. There's an ex-mistress of his who won't go away, the man who wants Storm for her inheritance, the stepmother who wants to force her to marry Hugh, the possibility that she's going to lose those she loves the most and the fact that their families have always been feuding.

One of the things I liked the most was the interaction between the hero and heroine. Sparks flew each time they were together. And the smart-alecky (is that a word? LOL) comments Storm had when she didn't like something just made me laugh.

This is a book not to be missed!

Buyer Alert! 31 Dec. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When I first saw this title coming up I immediately added it to my Wish List as I adore Hannah Howell's books, especially her newer ones. There was no review or indication of what the book was about (and I almost ordered it without one) but decided to look around at other sites to see what I could find out about it. Good thing I did, as if the review I read it correct, this book was originally published under the title of "Amber Flame" and I OWN IT. If you don't and have never read it but also enjoy Ms. Howell's books, you may want to purchase it. It is the story of Storm Eldon and Tavish Maclogan and you can check out the reviews written for "Amber Flame" at this site.

A waste of money. 23 Sept. 2012
By Bnbain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I bought this book because it was suggested on a forum. I looked on Amazon, and all of the reviews sounded promising, so I gave it chance. Boy, was it a waste of money. First, it was completely unbelievable. The hero, and I apply that term loosely, didn't even believably seduce the heroine. She told him no, several times, but he just says she'll enjoy it, and she goes with it. Not, to mention she was in love with him before he proved anything worth loving. She's there and suddenly in love, it was laughable. He doesn't do anything but have sex with her the entire time. When she is back with Sir Hugh because of his nasty ex-mistress he wasn't even going to do anything to help her. He only did after Phelan said he was going and he wanted to help. He is supposed to be a hero! He should have been trying to help her regardless. It was his catty mistress's fault!
Secondly, he has no qualm about inviting the woman who purposely gave Storm back to the evil Sir Hugh. Really?
But, the thing that disgusted me the most was how easy she took him back when he finally came after the birth of their children. She fights with him, he comes while she's breastfeeding and saying that he would have slept with Kate, but he hadn't and he had been celibate, and all's forgiven. It was bull.

The book really had promise. I really like the character of Storm. She was very sweet, funny, honest, but also fiery. But, Tavis was an idiot, with very little to deserve her. It was at times dull and slow before picking up and becoming more interesting, but ultimately it was a huge disappointment.

Big Disappointment, but well written 13 Sept. 2009
By Just Me - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Only reason I gave this book 3 stars is because Hannah Howell is such a good writer. The book did hold my interest....however, like Highland Vow's hero, His Bonnie Bride (aka Amber Flame) had a similar whimpy hero. I kept reading hoping that something would change. At one stage I hoped she would end up with one of his brothers. Travis pushed his feelings for Storm to the back of his mind, throughout the book. He kept convincing himself it was just lust (that gets old really fast). Even when she repeatedly told him that she loved him, he still just stood there and did not reciprocate. Even when she saved him from having his nether regions chopped off, he still denied his feelings for her. He just took all she had to give. The final blow was when he stood there like a statue, and let her leave, even though he knew she looked to him with pain in her eyes, wanting him to ask her to stay. He had the gall to blame her for leaving him!
Then when she goes to see him towards the end of the book, she finds him kissing and carressing his mistress. Oh the poor guy was so upset with losing her that he drank himself silly and reached out to his former mistress who by the way almost had Storm killed. Hmmmm....this book was a miss for me, but I do like that it brought up a lot of emotions (of mainly rage). I continue to love Hannah Howell's writing style, even though some books are a miss for me. So far my least favorites are Highland Vow and His Bonnie Bride.

Here comes Sooooooper-Storm! 27 Mar. 2008
By L. Rosenthal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Childish and formulaic writing troubles this novel, which abounds in cliches that you usually encounter from first-time romance writers. You have the typical heroine who can do almost anything, with her catlike eyes of unusual hue and her ability to wrap absolutely everyone and everything around her, like some kind of tremendously powerful magnet. Friends and enemies alike come to adore her. She comes to the rescue time and again, until you roll your eyes by the time everyone is singing her praises. And only one thing keeps the story going through all of this--the oldest cliche of all: The Hero Who Just Can't Seem To Get The Words "I Love You Too" out. Been there, done that a hundred times before, and sometimes, a heckuva lot better than this effort.
