I just plain did not like this book. It is the first one by Coulter to disappoint me. Parts of it felt like it was made up as she went along. A lot of it did not even make sense and was not very interesting either. I think this was her first foray into supernatural, mystical, woo- woo type stuff. She should stick to what she knows.

I know writing a review like this probably lessens my chances of offing this book on some other hapless reader, but I honestly cannot believe Catherine Coulter gets PAID to write. This is the second book of hers that I've tried (I like romance books, after all). My conclusion based on two of her novels is that her characters are vapid, one dimensional, and unrealistic. Her plots are loosely tied together... at best, at worst, they are rambling, unintelligible, and impossible to believe. The fact that somebody actually thinks she is talented enough to continue publishing her tripe is beyond my understanding.

I'm a huge Catherine Coulter fan but I really struggled to get through this book. I think the description of the book sounded a lot better than it actually was. I liked the characters but you missed out on some of the interaction with them when you're trying to figure out what the heck she's talking about in regards to the "centuries-old mystery". It was like she was trying too hard with that part of it that was just too over the top to be believable and even enjoyable.

A romance novel that is kind of fantasy/period romance as well. I enjoyed it immensely because I also love fantasy. This is part of a series by the author, but if you have not read the previous books ypu will still understand the story.

When I picked this one up, I thought it was more of a period novel and I wasn't really disappointed--I do like historical types too. However, as one gets further into the book, you find it is not just your usual period book. Yes, wizards do exist and often their children find it to be a great surprise. Thought it was a fun book with a great twist on the historical and fantastical.

This book was really boring to me. The characters were interesting enough and even the plot held major potential. The problem was it seemed to take forever to get anywhere in the story.

The dialogue was really awkward and the jumping narratives a little confusing from time to time. I had high hopes for this book based on the back cover description, but I just could not get into it, it never delivered what it promised. It took me forever to read and when it was done I was vastly relieved!

This was a surprising story. I have read several of the Sherbrooke Brides series before, but not in any particular order, nor have I sat and linked them together. This seems to be able to stand alone, but does make me wonder about a few of the unwed charaters at the end and if they have books of their own.

This was a romance, but it was not predominately about the relationship. The story unfolded with a few surprises, but the conflicts were never emotional ones between the hero and heroine. I have not read many fantasy / paranormal novels, so I don't have a good comparison, but this seemed to be enjoyable without over doing it.

I picked it based on the back cover blerb. If it seems like something you'd like, I'd suggest it.
