Exceptional Writing--A True Ten 10 Mar. 2001
By Edith Morgan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
A strong, sexy hero and an intelligent, resourceful heroine. Abe takes what might have been a standard plot and turns it into something truly special, primarily though her terrific writing. The two main characters are boldly drawn. So much so that feeling what they were feeling was effortless and seductive. You understand why Lauren cannot love Arion, and why he loves her so much. You rejoice when they get together. You are thrilled when they defeat the true enemy of the story. Hot love scenes, again using beautiful language without the silliness that mars some historicals. Great setting. Easy to feel you were there on the Scottish island with the mists and the forests and the winter snow. Very believable. All in all, a VERY worthwhile read, and I understand why Amazon.com named it one of their ten best romances of the year.

Incredibly Exciting as well as Romantic 13 Jun. 2002
By M. Rondeau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Whew! I just finished this book and I think I was holding my breath the last few chapters - it was that exciting and oh soooo romantic.
Beautiful Lauren MacRae was kidnapped as a child and held hostage by the English and it was in a dungeon she would meet the Englishman Arion du Morgan who would save her life. Years later she would return that favor on a battlefield against a new enemy and save his life.
He was now the Earl of Morgan and she the leader of the Clan MacRae. Both of these wonderful people were raised to hate one another but they were intelligent enough to realize they needed the strength of an alliance to fight a more vicious and common enemy. It made sense to form an alliance, but it also forced them into each other's company, finding themselves drawn to one another in spite of the history that taught them to hate and despise one another. Lauren was betrothed since childhood to Payton Murdoch, a powerful laird of Clan Murdoch and she would do her duty to her people for the honor of Clan McRae, even if it meant denying a love she thought never to feel.
This was such an amazing story, there were so many obstacles to overcome between these two people but Ms. Abe writes with such intensity that you can feel the passion drawing them to one another. This is a historical romance, but one that has a tremendous amount of bite and so much action that you will have trouble putting it down. Ms. Abe is definitely on my `buy' list!

Great read-fine characters 6 Jun. 2000
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1177, upon the death of his odious uncle, Arion du Morgan inherits the earldom that includes the English side of the Isle of Shot. As Arion knows, the isle remains in dispute with the Scots who also reside on it. When the islanders, English population ask their new Earl for help against invading Vikings, Arion arrives on Shot.

He meets the Scottish clan leader Lauren Macrae whose father was just killed by Vikings. They agree to work together to stop the invaders because if they fail to do so the Vikings will triumph. As Arion and Lauren fall in love, they struggle to keep their people from breaking the temporary agreement. His side does not trust the barbaric Scots while her side awaits the arrival of Lauren's betrothed Peyton to rescue them from the dreaded Vikings and the detested English.

INTIMATE ENEMIES is an exciting Medieval romance that shows the abilities of Shana Abe to make the past seem like the present. The story line is fun as the star-crossed lovers struggle against a common enemy, their own followers mistrust of the other side, and their love that seems which like a betrayal than a blessing at times. The twelfth century comes bustling into existence as readers have come to expect from a historical romance written by the very able Ms. Abe.

Scottish Clanswoman 6 Jun. 2000
By Xeneri - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lauren and Arion make an unlikely couple, to say the least. She is the leader of the Clan MacRae (thanks to her father's death) and he is a powerful english overlord -- and her clan's sworn enemy.
Neither can allow themselves to trust the other. But a defining moment in their past (once, when they were children, Arion saved Lauren from a tortuous fate), combined with their shared love for the land bring these two lovers together, against all odds. To keep safe everything they believe in, they must become allies and the two headstrong leaders form a risky alliance. This of course causes strife not only with Lauren's clan, but with Arion's soldiers. You can probably guess the rest.....
Ms. Abe writes with a touch of the mystical and has a deft hand at describing the beauty and wildness of the time period. This is an emotional book, with strong sensual characters. Lauren and Arion are striking figures and a well-matched couple who stay in your mind long after you finish the book.
I think the only reason I didn't give it higher stars is that I don't normally enjoy serious historical romances, prefering instead a light, comic approach. Also this book can be predictable and I saw the ending coming a mile away, but I still enjoyed the beautiful way it was written. As historicals go, this one is lyrical and filled with deep emotions. Pick it up especially if you have a love of Scotland.

Fantastic! 30 Mar. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Wow! This book was great! I just finished reading it last night - and I'd have to say Shana, you did a fabulous job! This one ranks up there with your first one A Rose In Winter - the characters were very well established and the chemistry between the two was great.
I have to admit I was a little disapointed that the love scenes occured so late in the novel, but after finishing the novel, I think the placement was perfect! Excellent reading!
