This book has it all - romance, adventure, and best of all, characters that any reader can relate to; Michael as the tortured hero, who finds himself in an extremely compromising situation with Catherine, who herself is completely off limits to him despite their mutual affection for each other. This is the fourth and last of the original Fallen Angels series - but I read it first, and on the strength of it alone went out and bought the other 3 (Thunder & Roses, Petals in the Storm, Dancing on the Wind)! I also got the two 'sequels' (River of Fire & One Perfect Rose), and I wasn't disappointed - but Shattered Rainbows is by far the most touching of them all. I cried reading this one - there is nothing quite like flawed protagonists to put true love in perspective. I recommend this book - and the 5 others - to any hopeless romantic; trust me, you won't have read a better book than this!

I like Putney's books, but the cover summary of this one made it seem really unbelievable and the situation sleazy. . . more of a fantasy than even I like. So I delayed reading it. When I finally got around to it, I was pleasantly surprized. The couple met during a campaign of the Napoleanic War when she is married to another officer. Their attraction to each other remains unacknowledged and their actions honorable. Only later do they get together and then the reasons for their actions - past and present - make sense. The emotional logic of the charactors is sound and the situations make sense. Putney leads her reader into accepting more and more fanatastic situations after she has gotten you caught up in caring about these people. Both the male and the female leads have clear cut personalities that stay consistant throughout the story. This is not one of those romances you keep saying to the charactors, "Get real. Stop being stupid and just tell the truth!" Putney also does a good job of developin

I cried, which I rarely do with books. Michael Kenyon is the perfect shattered hero. Through the book he learns to deal with his shame over nearly killing he best friend and unhappiness over the dislike his family has for him. There are many touching scenes and one was when he and his brother find that they can actually be friends instead of distant, unwelcoming stranger. A MUST READ!!

This book has wonderful characters. A very creative premise that the hero and heroine first meet when she is still married. She contributes to saving his life with one of the earliest attempts at blood transfusion. Fascinating. The hero had childhood asthma and is wonderful and sensitive in helping a young boy deal with his asthma. The villain is delightfully vicious, and the subplot of the hero getting close to his long-estranged brother is great. (Look for the brother in One Perfect Rose, another great book!) All in all a very satisfying read!

Of all the books in the Fallen Angels series, this one is my favorite. It has everything - romance, action, emotion, drama, revelations, and a happy ending. I think that Lord Michael Kenyon deserves a book like this after all he has been through in past books, and Catherine Melbourne is the perfect match as a heroine for him. I would definately recommend this book to all Mary Jo Putnay fans! It is by far one of her best.

It is hard to choose a favourite of this series but I did truly enjoy this whole series. The last book had me in tears and smiles.

This is one of the best historical romances I have read. The characters and the story will stay with you a long time after you have finished reading the book...
