Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1777, Pennsylvania is a divided colony between loyalty to the crown and backers of the revolutionaries. Annette Carey gains a first hand taste of what being on the wrong side means. Friends and neighbors accuse Annette and her father of treason as they remain supporters of the crown. The mob tars and feathers her father, and burns their home to the ground. Annette vows to never trust anyone ever again.

The British navy and merchants hate John Patrick Sutherland, the Star Rider, for his successful raids and forays on their ships. During a battle near Philadelphia, John is severely wounded. His first mate takes him to his half-brother, Dr. Noel Marsh, a royalist. After providing treatment, Noel escorts John to the Carey home, a place where Annette runs a hospital. Noel lies to the loyalist by stating his patient is a British officer. As John and Annette fall in love, he hates himself for lying to her. When she learns the truth, she will probably never forgive his deception.

When a historical romance receives the Potter treatment, readers know that the story line is pure action and excitement, and the characters are wonderful. STAR KEEPER gets the full Potter treatment as the plot never lets up from beginning to end. It also leaves readers with a taste of the division in the American colonies during the Revolutionary War era. John's inner turmoil feels so real, the audience will want to both throttle and hug him. The secondary cast brings the era into further perspective. Pat Potter shows her star status with another keeper.

I thought that this book would be exciting, and it really wasn't at all. It is the story of a pirate (John Patrick) during the war of independence who is nursed by a loyalist (Annette Carrey)...once she finds out who he really is, she hates him and he is thus forced to kidnap her and her decrepit father (obviously). It annoyed me that the author thought to spend a lot of time on 2 sub characters who were really not that interesting, the decrepit father was a bad distraction and it took so long for the main couple to overcome their differences that you just got thoroughly bored with the whole thing. I was really not keen on the fact that it seemed promising to begin with and then just suddenly got very slow moving after Annette discovers her man's true identity. They argued and ignored each other for most of the first 300 pages and I just honestly thought that life is far too short to bother. I prefer a bit of action and less of the arguing. PLEASE !!!!!

I've long been a fan of Patricia Potter's books for the way she puts heartbreakingly flawed characters into settings and situations that turn them into true heros and heroines. STAR KEEPER is no exception. Or perhaps it IS an exception: in a world bogged down with mediocre, anachronistic historicals, this one shines like the star in its title. Real characters, real emotions, real love, real history all make for an unforgettable reading experience. A wonderful book from a wonderful writer -- begin with this one, and I guarantee you'll become a Patricia Potter reader for life!

I really tried to like the hero throughout the book but found myself having a hard time liking some of his decisions. The female was just okay. I got tired of reading how she wanted to dislike the guy and was fighting that feeling through out the book. It got boring. BUT I think the book before this one was excellent. I was so caught up with the characters. Which made buy this one.

A wonderul book with complex characters and an uncommon setting. The revolutionary war has been somewhat neglected by historical authors and I hope this book will pique interest in this turbulent era. Of course, Star Keeper sets a high standard and readers will not settle for less.
