I almost died when I got to the end of this book and realized it was a cliffhanger! I was so mad at the author because I wanted to read the rest of the story and had to wait three months for the continuation to come out!!! Thsi was a great read, nevertheless and I highlyt recommend it. (But you have to get "The Blood of Roses" or else you will scream when you get to the ending that really isn't an ending!)

This wasn't bad, an historical romance leading up to the Stuart uprising in 1746 Scotland. I must admit, throughout the book I found many similarities to Gone With the Wind (I have a feeling the author was a big fan of it, instead of the Civil War she has subsituted Culloden) Aside from constantly comparing her hero to Rhett Butler, and having her heroine wear pantalettes under her crinoline skirts (umm, that happened 100 years later) I enjoyed this book and her battle descriptions were vivid and riveting. Looking forward to the sequel.

circa 1745. "Turbulence and romance of Scotland's quest for freedom in a saga of two born enemies whose lives and destinies are irrevocably found to the fate of an empire." This story just really gets to you; tense, electrifying. You've got to read this one.

Excellent book. Be sure to have The Blood of Roses, the next book in the series in hand when you finish this book.
This book begins the love affair between Catherine and Alexander but also sets the stage for the political events that lead to the Jacobite War.

The Pride of Lions was first published ten years ago. It is now being re-released much to the delight of Canham fans everywhere! Catherine Ashbrooke is determined to wed Lieutenant Hamilton Garner, and even the half-naked trespasser she discovers on her father's estate doesn't change her mind. Believing the tall, dark stranger with the midnight eyes is a poacher, Catherine is surprised when he appears at her eighteenth birthday party -- as Raefer Montgomery, prosperous English merchant. She flirts with him to make Hamilton jealous, but when Raefer kisses her, Hamilton insists on a duel. Hamilton is wounded and Catherine's father is so incensed by the incident that he forces Catherine and Raefer to marry. Afterward, Catherine is forced to spend the night in a seedy tavern. There she discovers she's married not to a proper English gentleman, but a Scottish Jacobite Spy and murderer, Alex Cameron, and that they are traveling not to London, but to Scotland. Catherine tries to escape, but is caught by Alex who promises her freedom once they reach Scotland. Once in Scotland, Catherine is drawn into the lives of the Camerons and their deadly blood feud with the Campbells. She finds passion in Alex's embrace, but can she find love with this rebel? Marsha Canham rewrote this classic novel reducing the bodice-ripper tone and making the Scottish brogue more readable. Lovers of her rich, elegant writing and thrilling stories will treasure The Pride of Lions. Alex is a hero to make readers' hearts pound as they turn the pages, and Catherine, while spoiled, grows steadily throughout the course of the novel. I will be standing in line at the bookstore when The Blood of Roses is released, in June, 1998, for the conclusion of this Highland tale.Marsha Canham keeps the reader on the edge of their seat with this tale of high adventure! A thrilling romance set against the tapestry of Jacobite Scotland! Alex Cameron will make readers' hearts pound as they turn the pages! Marsha Canham weaves romance, adventure and history into tales that capture the readers' imaginations -- and their hearts!Phoebe Imel -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc. All rights reserved

It was a boastful wager, a bold flirtation meant to win a proposal from the most eligible officer in His Majesty's Royal Dragoons. How was the spoiled and pampered Catherine Augustine Ashbrooke to know the handsome stranger with the brooding midnight eyes would see through her plot and make her the pawn in a dangerous game of his own?

Alexander Cameron may have won the highborn English beauty in a duel, but not even the lure of long-forgotten desires could keep him from his meeting with destiny. He had no choice but to carry his reluctant bride off to the Highlands, to a world of ancient blood feuds and a brewing rebellion - a world where fiery passion and breathtaking courage would prove that even legendary warriors could lose their hearts.
