I love this book. It is timeless. A woman falls for a rich man that she hair for. He is aloof. She doesn't know how he feels till he lost his memories. And when he regains its he finds it hard to trust her. And she would need to over come it. And she has a back bone as well.

Give it a read x

4.0 out of 5 stars A refreshing read., 20 Mar 2008
This review is from: The Bride (Paperback)
This is the first book from this author that i have read and i hope that it will not be my last.

The bride is about a young feisty woman Jamie. She can be sweet and innocent in one moment and loud and temperous the next. She is the youngest of the four daughters that the baron has. When he failed to pay his taxes to the king. The king sought to make an example of him by having two of his daughters being married to two highland knights.

By the order of their king Alec Kincaid and a friend will have to choose from two english brides. They see this as only a chore and if the choice would be given they would of like a highland wife and all they know and heard about english women was that they were cold fish.

Arriving three days early. The men overheard Jamie and her sister in the barn asking about scottish people to there stable master as he is half scottish and use to live there as a babe.

Finding the women amusing they choose these two ladies as brides. They married them the same day and set off to scotland.

In scotland Jamie tries to know more about her husband. but he is keeping himself aloof from her. She tries many things but he does not believe in love.

Jaime is a healer and she cannot stop her compasionate side from gettin her into trouble. Thus leaving her to start wars with other clans.
She wears her heart on her sleeve. and until she can accept her new way of life there will not be peace in the highlands

This book is well written the secondary charators are amazing.

I would tell people that loves historical romace to read this book it has a lot of passion that is well balanced out with romance and humor.

3.0 out of 5 stars I think the symthosis does not tell the story right., 15 Mar 2008
This review is from: Emerald Knight (Paperback)
Hi all.

In the story our heroine and the man is betrothed from her brirth and him being eight years old at the time.
Any way as she was young she was impulsive and when she was eight he and his family came to visit hers. At the time she kind of embarrased herself as well as his.
Consequently a couple of years later she told him in a letter that in a result of an accident she lost most of her hair and her appearence is not so good.
This resulted him in not being so eager to fulfuil to marriage contract.

When the date for the marriage arrived the girl came to his home and he didnt know that her and her family have arrived so soon and she caught him making love to his mistress.

From then on she didnt want his attentions till he got rid of her.
When he saw his future bride he did indeed thought she was a beauty but she was 15 years old and her brother made the man promise not to fulfill the marriage until she was ready.

Therefore he went to touraments around the country. The next time he saw his wife was 4 years later and he didnt reconised her at first as she looked to different and more mature.

He wasn't the only one that noticed is wife was a beauty. Everyone at court was calling her the Sparkling Emerald. Getting jelous and all he decided it was time to consumate the marriage. The king noticed his wife and as the hero saved his life the king owed him a favor and he what he asked the king was not to seduce his young wife.

Then the rest of the story was about coping with marriage life with a lot of steamy sex!!!

The book was 3 stars for me. I thought it was good but not like omg i have to read it again.

One of those books that you would like to borrow and bring it back but good read but forgettable.
i forgot their names. but it is also enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read., 19 Jan 2008
... I brought this book based on the review.

Basically it is about three sisters who have a family curse. That curse is that if they ever fall in love the man dies before his 30th birthday.

Therefore the women try to stay away from men. The youngest of the sisters Sophie fyne is young and nieve. When she was out swimming one day she happens to come across Kane. For the pass three days Sophie had been having very sensul dreams about him.

And as she is destined not to love she does want a child therefore she sets about seducing the man.

When Kane first sees Sophie he thought that she as just a dream as he was drinking a lot that day and drowning his sorrows over his brothers death.

After thier brief meeting together Sophie wishes him good luck and happiness as he had given her a child.

Never forgetting his dream angel. Kane returns to search for her a year later. And when he did the plot started to unfold because sophie good luck to she wished him had ran out.

His past was about to catch up with him. And Sophie being beautiful like a ray of sunshine people were bound to get jelous and suspicious.

When their daughter is kidnapped it is up to the parents to come to gether and save their daughter from the dark forces at hand.

With a prophecy to be fulfilled and family to be reunited Will this couple find a happy ending as well as to find a way to get rid of the 300 year old curse?

I gave this book a rating of 3 because it took me a while to get in to it. i did not know what sort of setting it was in. At first is seemed all medieval then a bit western when she was describing the town where the sisters live. Then more high tech once they gone to the capital city with their lifts and 13 floors.
Besides from that it was a good read. A good deal of mild passion. And also some un expected romance at the end which have me grasping that i didn't buy the second book along with the first.

Just a warning to fellow romance readers. This book ends in like a clif hanger so you need to buy the second book along with the first otherwise you be like me having to wait 4 to 5 weeks for the next one.

Good book just not a keeper.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dragon Breath hot., 18 Jan 2008
If you haven't read the previous book in this series i suggest that you do other wise you might find yourself a bit lost as alot have happened in the series to lead us to this point in the great never ending plot. i suggest that you start with the master of moon or go on angela knight website.

The book is about a dragon freed from a sword in the previous book. Kel was trapped in a sword for 15 centuries by his uncle cause he like having humans as friends so as punishment his uncle trapped him in this sword and the only way to be free was to kill the human.

As you gathered kel is now free and he is enjoying his freedom. Arthur made him a knight of the round table and he is helping human kind evole.

Then kels dragon sends him on a mission to pretect a fairy princess.

The fairy princess Nineva has been living in exile all her life. her parents had been murdered. And she knew that if she must use her magic she must do it carefully cause there are those who could sense it.

As kel find nineva obviously she tried to kill him by attacking him thinking he was the bad people looking for her when she manages to get away she comes across the real bad people who she thought were the good guys but being smart she comes to see reason soon as.

Kel then comes and save her and then the two must embark on a fast track story to save earth from the dark ones.
And to do this Nineva must free her gooddess from the sword. As her goddess in one of fertility Nineva needs to have mind blowing sex with kel so that her goddess can have their engery.

And her goddess needs to be strong for the coming days which means that once is not enough.

This story is well written and well paced. you see many characters from the prievous book in here.

And i started to realise close to the end that all of the plots that happened in the other books was like a starting point for all that to happen at the end.

i would suggest that you buy this book and if you havent read the first ones read those first.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Book though, 23 Nov 2007

But i have to give this book 3 stars. The reviews below mine tells you all you need to know about the book and all that i have to add to them is that even though you can sense a lot of passion between the characters and there was any steamy love scenes between the charaters till the last page. I personally love my books when they have those sort of encounter at least half way through not once at the end of the book.

But good book though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, 28 Oct 2007
i really loved this book. It was different from many others that i have read. If you like a lot of passion within your book then i suggest that you read this. This also offer many steamy scenes between some of the character that you learn to love.

Well that is all i can say as the lady below me has sad it all. All i can say is buy the book and read it for yourself and you be withering with need by the end line of the book as i was doing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romance at it best, 2 July 2007
Hi all i just finished reading this book and i personally think that it is romance at it best. The heroine can be a bit annoying and her husband fallen in love with her and he acknowledges his mistakes in the relationship and want to move their marriage on and forget the past. In the book you realise that her husband just wants to be loved and he says this numberous of times and he is just waiting for Leonie. Leonie did take a lot of time to come around i feel like that in the real world she would of communicated a lot better to her husband. The reason why i say this is cause she is afraid to mention something a woman said to her about her husband and yet she will defy her husband in any other thing. It does sometimes feel like a cat and mouse story. However it is well written.

Five star.

3.0 out of 5 stars it is very good, 30 Nov 2006
Well when i read the book i found it very exciting!!

Well in the book the heroine takes the man hostage. So he could get her pregant as her husband died on the wedding night.

Later when he is released she learns that he is no commoner but a lord. And since she was with child he decides to keep her prisoner like she did to him. A lot of passion involved.
They had to learn to trust each other.

She balance it out with passion and romance
