"Author Harper Fox draws characters that are magnificently realized, flawed and human even down to the most minor of secondary character."
--RT Book Reviews
"It's very rare to discover a writer who is as talented as Harper Fox. Her work is consistently very well written, her characters complex and engaging and the plots of her stories draw us forward without awareness of the spell being cast."
--Reviews by Jessewave
""The Salisbury Key "had me captivated from beginning to end with its brilliant story of adventure, intrigue, and passion. I immensely enjoyed Harper's writing style...I highly recommend "The Salisbury Key" to anyone who appreciates a love story that's perhaps a bit more complex, but very satisfying."
--Queer Magazine Online
About the Author
Harper Fox is the author of six critically acclaimed M/M novels, including Samhain's "Driftwood" and "The Salisbury Key." Her novels and novellas are powerfully sensual, with a dynamic of strongly developed characters finding love and a forever future--after the appropriate degree of turmoil. She loves to try and show the romance implicit in everyday life, but she writes a sharp action scene too.

I have to say I liked every character in this, apart from the bad guys of course.
Nichol was a hard working guy who gave up Edinburgh to help his Granda when his mum and brother died and you had to feel sorry for him because he never got thanked for his efforts or got the chance to mourn their loss. Cameron started off as a scared guy on the run but blossomed into a very helpful, very hard working guy who came to love both Nichol and Harry, though for different reasons. Harry was your typical brusque old man who never showed his feelings and in the end, I'm sure he regretted that. Archie, was your well to do cop who only ended up causing more problems and Shona was your tough farm girl who was taking the reigns after losing her abusive husband.
Together they were a very lively bunch and they brought a smile to my face one way or another.
There's very little sex in this and what there is is rather low-key and not at all sexy, but it suited the leads and the tale and the connection between the guys felt real, without the need to say those three little words. It does have some sadness and a little bit of drama and it ends in the start of a HEA, which is the tiniest bit idealistic, but it was a great intro to this author and his/her writing talents.

The use of gaelic, though occasionally distracting if not immediately translated, paired with the incredibly evocative description of the landscape gave the book a lot of atmosphere. The occasional Highland ghost didn't seem out of place at all. Nor did the portent of change the animals tended to represent. It all contributed to the rich tapestry of superstitions and culture that was Arron island life. (And gawd do I ever want to visit now.)
The writing in very descriptive and really quite poignant. I didn't so much read this book as feel it. I laughed, I teared up, I held my breath and eventually heaved a sigh of relief. The actual ending was a little too sappy for me, but the general ending I loved. I will definitely be seeking out more of Ms. Fox's writing.
