Disguised as a boy, Caitlyn O'Malley picks pockets on the streets of Dublin to survive. One day she is caught by Connor d'Arcy who instead of turning her in to authorities, takes her to his home in the countryside to live with him and his brothers. As years go by Caitlyn's feelings for Connor grow, but he still thinks of her as a child under his protection. When she discovers Connor and his brothers are posing as highwaymen, robbing rich Englishmen and giving their bounty to the poor Irish, she wants to join them. But Connor has too many people counting on him to jeopardize his family or endanger Caitlyn who he has come to love.

I first read this book 20+ years ago and I found it entertaining this time around too. Caitlyn is a hothead who starts out not trusting men, but finally comes to trust Connor and his family. Connor is just a nice guy who has the responsibility of taking care of his brothers and various community members since he was orphaned at a young age. Connor and Caitlyn have an appealing relationship, but I wasn't happy with the plot twist in the middle of the book. My rating: 4 Stars.

This book is a first publishing in 1988. The cover is a bit different. A great book, romance at its finest.
