I cannot believe how bad this Lauren novel is! I'm such a big fan h ave all the Cynster and bastion novels, even the last three starting with the Breckinridge novel were good but since then I have been so disappointed! Pointless drivel, too much description of an event that maybe took half an hour! No decent story line and no connection with either of the characters! Couldn't stand Mary! Came across like a spoilt brat totally full of herself with very little redeeming features. Don't think ill bother any more if she carries on in this vein. Sorry ms Lauren u have severely disappointed me!

The Honorable Mary Cynster is the last of the unmarried Cynster of her generation. Ryder Cavanaugh is not the type of man Mary wants to marry, but after a series of events but they find themselves married to each other. Ryder does not see this as a hard ship as he wanted to Mary all a long. But there is danger out there and Ryder and Mary are may not survive it.
"The Taming of Ryder Cavanaugh" is the latest Cynster book by Stephanie Laurens and it was a pretty decent read. It was nice to re-visit the Cynster clan and see the latest changes to the family. But I do have agree with other reviewers the book seem to longer than it needed to be. Overall, "The Taming of Ryder Cavanaugh" was okay and it would be interesting to see where Ms. Laurens take the series.

I enjoyed reading this - the last one about this generation of Cynsters ,who we met a long time ago, in Devil's Bride- I can't honestly say it was gripping- nor is it my favourite - that honour goes to Devil's Bride & A Secret Love- those have never been bettered in my opinion.
I did appreciate her drawing up of all those generations in the annual Summer at Somersham event, which has become something of a tradition. Here we got to read a bit about the next generation and really understand how the Cynster family is evolving with that sense of familiy ties that was present in Devil's Bride. The children appear to have formed as close a bond as their parents and , for that alone, Ms Laurens gets an extra star.There were hints of strong personalities who may or may not have their own stories.I only hope that, if this is the case, those stories don't become a faint facismile of the first generation of Cynster novels that made Ms Laurens so popular.In a way, I'd much rather read a very well written story about a new Cynster generation ( to the standard of Devil's Bride ) than about Heathcote Montague or Barnaby Adair or some other vaguely interesting character that made little impact in one of her other novels.

Received this book this morning now finished it. .....very good...
This is about what Mary Cynster & ryder Cavanaugh both eventually succeed in having, family to love and be loved in return and it takes near death to realise for Ryder to state the words.

I hope Ms Laurens goes on to write more about the Cynsters next generation, Sebastian, Michael, Louisa Louisa and all their cousins misinformed from the other 5 Bar Cynsters as these will be a joy to follow for the wider family as we have got to know them and all there exploits.

Wonder if this will involve any of the Bastion Clubs brood...we can only hope

Well done Ms Laurens.

I was looking forward to this last in the Cynster Sister books .Oh dear it was such a let down.The actual action including the signature Laurens sex scenes would be hard pressed to fill a small novella.The rest was first one character and then the other analysing their feelings over and over again often in the same words.Did the author have these paragraphs in memory and keep just linking them in to make up the word count?I could add a word to the word count BORING .I was mentally screaming get on with it and skipping pages wholesale.Please Stephanie stop looking at the word count and write a better book next time or you will be off my want list.

I really enjoyed this book and all the previous books in the Cynster family saga. Mary Cynster is the last of her generation of Cynsters to find her hero and untimately find the love of her life. Ryder Cavanaugh eventually becomes that man after a near death experience (when Ryder nearly dies) and then once married someone tries to kill Mary at various times and ultimately tries to kill them both. In the end they both survive and find out who the would-be murderer is! This is a good read and like other reviewers I hope Ms Laurens continues writing about the Cynster family.

This book "The Taming of Ryder Cavanaugh" is a romantic thriller/mystery novel, and the second of a linked pair of stories in the author's "Cynster" series, the first being "And Then She Fell: Number 4 in series (Cynster Sisters)." Both these books are set in 1837 (the year Queen Victoria came to the throne), and follow on from the previous "Cynster Sisters" trilogy set in 1829. This book could therefore be seen as the final volume of a quintet.

Mary and Henrietta Cynster, the heroines of this book and of its' predecessor respectively, are the cousins of the three sisters, Heather, Eliza and Angelica Cynster, who were the heroines of the previous trilogy, which consisted of

1) "Viscount Breckenridge To The Rescue" (Heather)
2) "In Pursuit Of Eliza Cynster" and
3) "The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae (Cynster)" (Angelica)

In the first of those books, "Viscount Breckenridge to the rescue," while visiting Scotland, Heather Cynster was given a special necklace which has some kind of pagan religious powers: it was supposed to help an unmarried lady who wears it to find her "hero" and true love. We were told in that book that this necklace would pass in turn from Heather Cynster to her sisters Eliza and Angelica, and then to their cousins Henrietta and Mary before returning to Scotland.
