I really enjoyed this book. Once I got through the inital cat racing scene (I don't personally care for cats at all:), the story flew by. The hero's love for the heroine makes the story worth the read. I did realize after the book was over however, that I missed getting to know him that well. You meet this childhood family, and see his actions regarding his wife, but his main conflict was unrequited love, not some inner struggle.
I still definately recommend this story. Especially if you have read Tysen's story from earlier in Coulter's series. Who doesn't love a man head over heals for a woman?

Pendragon is the seventh book in the Sherbrooke series. Meggie Sherbrooke is eighteen years old and ready to be presented to society. She travels to London to stay with her Uncle Douglas and Aunt Alex for her first season. At her first ball, she glances across the room, where her attention firmly lands on a familiar gentleman. He is her almost-cousin Jeremy Stanton-Greville, whom she had an all-consuming crush on the summer of her thirteenth year. One thing leads to another, and Meggie discovers he is betrothed to another and her young heart gets trampled on.

After the season is over, Meggie just wants to go home and lick her wounds. She has no desire to find anyone else to take Jeremy's place or mend her broken heart. She is resigned to become an old spinster and race cats. After just leaving church with her little brother Rory, she runs into Thomas Malcolmbe, Lord Lancaster. His father had passed away six months ago and is just now seeing to his estate. He takes one look at Meggie and wants her, but she has other ideas which baffle him. He has no idea why Meggie isn't interested. Thomas usually has no problem enticing the ladies. He is handsome, intelligent and wealthy. What's not to love?

After a couple of months, Thomas proposes and Meggie accepts. Here is where the story takes a very bad turn. Thomas becomes a butt-head and Meggie has the most god-awful wedding night. Really, trust me, it's bad. Meggie, the champ that she is, just picks up the pieces and continues on. If it wasn't for Meggie's golden personality, I would have hated this book and not finished it. Thomas was too wishy-washy in his feelings for Meggie. One minute he loves her and believes that she will be loyal to him and the next he wants to punish her and teach her a lesson. He irritated and annoyed me most of the book. There is a mystery plot involved as well, but it does nothing for the story. It seemed contrived and very unrealistic. I really enjoy Catherine Coulter's writing. She usually has a way of keeping me turning the pages quickly. Unfortunately, this was not one of those books. Hopefully the next one will be better.

From back of book...It's time for a bit of cat racing, a sinister mystery, and a light touch of gothic menace. Add the signature Sherbrooke grit and wit and voila, you have Pendragon. Heres to the next generation - Tysen Sherbrooke now has four sons and Meggie, age nineteen. Her almost cousin Jeremy Stanton-Greville- Sophia Sherbrookes brother, and the man Meggie has held in sileent adoration since she was thirteen years old - unknowingly breaks her guileless heart. She rallied with a hasty marriage to Thomas Malcombe, the earl of Lancaster, a brand new card in the Sherbrooke deck. Thomas takes his bride to Pendragon, a castle on the southeastern coast of Ireland. A monstrous old place, filled with very eccentric folk, Pendragon nonetheless charms Meggie, until she discovers that she's there for a reason that could lead to disaster......

Coulter's latest Regency-era romance continues the saga of the Sherbrooke family, relayed in her Bride Trilogy (The Sherbrooke Bride, etc.). While attending her first London ball, 18-year-old Meggie, daughter of Reverend Tysen Sherbrooke, encounters an old schoolgirl crush, her "almost-cousin" Jeremy. Certain that she is now old enough to be truly in love, she's devastated when her affections aren't returned. In an attempt to get over Jeremy, she hastily marries Thomas Malcombe, the earl of Lancaster, a man who has been scarred by his history with untrustworthy women. Meggie must win over her husband, even as she battles her nasty mother-in-law for control of the estate. Her troubles don't stop there, however; someone is trying to kill her, and she and Thomas must discover who and why. Although fans of the series will undoubtedly enjoy revisiting the charming and eccentric Sherbrooke family, new readers will find themselves at a loss to explain some of their bizarre behavior (the family's tradition of cat racing, for instance). Several of the novel's plot points are left unresolved as well such as the reason behind Mrs. Malcombe's antipathy toward Meggie and the motive behind Thomas's younger brother's rakish behavior. Despite the occasional charming moment, this slight story falls short of Coulter's usual standards. (Jan.)Forecast: Over the years, Coulter's fan base has expanded to include devotees of contemporary romantic suspense and thriller novels, but these readers won't find her latest a worthy introduction to her historicals. Coulter's long-time fans, however, will pluck this one off the shelf before the dust has a chance to settle.
