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 never write a review but this time I will make an exception.
I bought this book IN ENGLAND. Thinking this might be a good representation of how it was before. And the only thing to recommend it is its lovely cover. It's a dead boring book with tons of clear americanisms in manner of speech and thinking. It's a great disappointment and waste of time and money, especially this novel of all the novels I have ever purchased from her.
it's as if she has a template text ready and just re-writes the names, I get the feeling that it's as if she has an intern to just write parts of it and publishes in her name (i'm not saying she does but her motivation to actually do justice to the reader is lacking). feels so dead to me. supposed to be the cliamx of the series (I have all three books and the best one in this series is the second one) and it puts me to sleep as to how boring it is.
I mean the scenes where she writes about them in the pub together before they leave on the coach together, it's as if they are boarding a plane. take out the word 'coach' and replace it with 'plane', 'waiting hall', it's a great disappointment, Might as well be a diner in texas for the way the text is built up the way it has been written with clear ignorant americanisms in the text. Hardly any dialogue and all of it passively written makes it even more boring. The story is slow moving, barely probable and barely any drama, like as if it's normal and acceptable to be kidnapped and she should just accept it 'cos she has a hero and she thinks that makes everything ok.
Have bought 5 of her books and recognize this is her style I have decided to avoid her books as they are generally a let down due to the irritating ignorant americanisms and 'template text' feeling, so no one can say that I haven't tried to give her a chance.

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.

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!
