I have just finished a great book by [=Kathryn Le Veque=] it is [=Spectre of the Sword=] its historical romance at its best.
We have an illegitimate princess and a knight who puts his duty above all else. The love story is beautiful and shows there is no need for a good writer to use too much sex or bad language to get a love scene across to the reader. I have read many of her books now and they are all very different. Even when set in a familiar time. Spectre of the Sword
I have just finished Black Hills by Nora Roberts. I am a big fan of hers so I was expecting the usual great book. I was disappointed. This book was a very slow starter , it eventually turned into a good story with a strong finish. The characters were likeable so to the secondary characters. If this had been by any other author it would be ok but from Nora I expect better.
I just finished reading [= Angels, Sinners and Madmen=] by [= Cate Masters=]
Its an historical romance set in the 1800s on the coast off Florida with the wreckers. Cate shows us the caring side of people usually shown as cruel and vicious. They were brave and maybe greedy, but in those days before lifeboats it must have been necessary.
Our heroine is a woman who is strong and knows how to get what she wants , but is fighting to live her own life in a time when women had to do as the men in their lives told them. Our hero does not know what he wants , he’s been hurt once and doesn’t want it to happen again. The history is interesting and well written.
I really enjoyed this book. I had never read one in this setting before and found it a very enjoyable and exciting time.
Cate Masters is a new to me author but I will be looking for more by her in the future.
I am a first time blogger. I just want to learn how to do this. I love to read and talk about the books I read.
