This book is the conclusion of the latest trilogy in the "Bar Cynster" series, a story in three volumes set in 1829 which features three sisters, Heather, Eliza and Angelica Cynster. It is essential to read these three books in the correct sequence, which is

1) "Viscount Breckenridge To The Rescue" (Heather)
2) "In Pursuit Of Eliza Cynster," and
3) This book, "The capture of the Earl of Glencrae" (Angelica.)

The main story arc linking these three books finishes in this one, but two more novels, linked to this trilogy by a special necklace, are due to be published in 2013. During "Viscount Breckenridge to the rescue" her aunt Catriona gives Heather Cynster a necklace, known as "the Lady's Jewel." We were told that this necklace will help each lady who wears it find her "hero" e.g. the love of her life, and that it will pass in sequence from Heather Cynster to her sisters Eliza and then Angelica, and then to their cousins Henrietta and Mary. During this trilogy each of the sisters in turn wears the jewel during her own book. In the epilogue of this novel Angelica passes it to Henrietta. Henrietta and her sister Mary will have their turn wearing this necklace in the following novels due to come out next year (2013):

4) "And Then She Fell: Number 4 in series (Cynster Sisters)" and
5) "

I do find Stephanie's ability to place her heroines in jeopardy inventive and amusing. The fact that she managed to stretch this one over 3 books has to place it high on the list of most well done heroine perils. It has her usual mix of story and romance, though I would say less of the romance in this one - which is no bad thing. The same basic romantic interludes again and again can wear thin.

However I was somewhat confused reading this book because it features dear great aunt Clara. As I, like many others I suspect, have been reading these books as numbered in the Cynster family chart when she first appeared I thought, hang on, she died some books back. Which is in fact the case. In the list book number 10 "The Perfect Lover", Simon Cynster and Portia Ashford's story, it quite clearly states that Simon has inherited his estate from Clara almost immediately you start reading the book yet Angelica and Dominic's story is number 18, eight books later yet clearly taking place before "The Perfect Lover". So I actually went back through the books and put together a timeline based on the dates the books take place to give the correct reading order.

This is the final book detailing the kidnappping of the three Cynster sisters, Heather, Eliza and Angelica. In this volume, the reasons why and who is behind their problems is revealed. After explaining why, Angelica agrees to help her so called kidnapper, known to the Cynsters as The Laird.

He explains that he is being blackmailed and the price to be paid is the disgrace of any one of the sisters. It all goes back to Cecila Cynster when she made her comeout many years before. Of course there is a twist, The Laird then discovers that not only his mother, but the head of a fueding clan is out to distroy him and his people for their own ends.

Naturally the male Cynsters eventually find them, just as things come to a head with two deaths and of course three marriages.

With the necklace passed on to Henrietta, there are still a couple of stories to come.

I found this book equally enjoyable to 'In Pursuit of Eliza Cynster', yet very different. What I like about these romances is that so much time is taken over the hero and heroines relationship. The action never takes centre stage to the couple getting to know each other - which basically is what I'm in for. I also especially enjoyed the Scottish setting in this one. There might be a little too much explanation and speculation, which sometimes get boring. As someone else said, Laurens should 'show' rather than 'tell' more.
Oh, and sorry for being crude, but has anyone else wondered why these girls don't get pregnant?! I know it's not realism, but still!

Anyway, overall, a satisfying and sexy romance!
