    This series was so good I was disappointed when book 4 ended. Bummed. I want more.
    I hope there is a book 5 in the works or perhaps the author is writing similar novels. Book 4 ended as if there could be a book 5. I hope so. The series was excellent in my opinion. I want more!!!!

    Pursued by her enemies, flattered and courted for her lands, a powerful, devious princess is desperate to reach refuge. Haunted by the shadow of the young assassin set upon her, Princess Melanthe knows that an ice cold countenance is her only protection. To succumb to love is the greatest danger of all. She can trust only one man amid the lies, the mysterious Green Knight - a true knight who never wavers once he gives his heart; a man who cannot comprehend deceit.

    I love the series. I like historical facts intertwined in the book. I found one discrepancy regarding Mary of Mar and the Earl of Atoll but I can excuse that as the author's depiction of Atoll's death was right on. A great book of romance, history and Scotland. (I wish authors would leave more to the imagination regarding sexual 'liaisons'. I would like books to be less sexually explicit, but that is just my opinion).

    Magnus MacKay is the ultimate Highlander: tough, proud, able to master any terrain and to best his enemies. Called "the Saint" for his refusal to discuss women, as well as for his cool and steady leadership, Magnus hides a painful truth. It isn't virtue or piety that keeps him silent, but a wound of love and loss that cuts so deep he cannot bear to speak of it. But when the woman who refused him is betrothed to his friend and fellow Guardsman, Magnus is tested by love's battle cry.

    For one thing I liked Robert McNab much better as the voice of the Highland Guard. The character Helen irritated me.She was too tedious for me. I am fascinated by Scottish history and novels that are historically accurate.

    He was once a legendary highwayman. Now he's a recluse in a ruined French castle, with only a half-wild wolf for a companion. When Lady Leigh Strachan comes looking for a man to aid in her revenge, she's disillusioned to find that the famed Prince of Midnight couldn't help even if he cared to - which he doesn't. S. T. Maitland wants nothing to do with his legend, or with this fierce, beautiful, broken woman... until the old thrill of living on the cutting edge of danger begins to rise in his blood again.

    The Prince of Midnight was not as good as Flowers in the Storm or The Shadow and the Star. This book was a little darker. Two injured birds instead of one. Nicholas Boulton is perfect as usual. He has a wonderful voice for narrating.

    If you like historical romance novels of the aristocracy, You will enjoy this book. You feel the pain, joy, and sadness of a 'marriage of convenience'. Anne Flosnik is one of the best narrators. I am on to the second of the books in the series.

    Laura Kinsale always seems to manage to tug at your heart strings. You feel for her characters. Her stories are very well written. They keep me interested from beginning to end and leave me wanting more. Nicholas Boulton is a wonderful narrator and brings the characters alive.

    Major Connor MacKinnon despises his commander, Lord William Wentworth, beyond all other men. Ordered to rescue Wentworth's niece after the Shawnee take her captive, he expects Lady Sarah Woodville to be every bit as contemptible as her uncle. Instead, he finds a brave and beautiful lass in desperate peril. But the only way to free Sarah is for Connor to defeat the Shawnee warrior who kidnapped her - and claim her himself.

    Book 3 of the MacKinnon's Rangers series did not disappoint. Kaleo Griffith is a wonderful narrator. I had not heard him until this series. He brought the Mackinnons and the Rangers to life. Historically very interesting. I would like to make an observation here. Why do authors these days have to be so sexually explicit in their books? I would have given the story 5 stars if it had not been for the explicit sex.

    Though forced to fight for the hated British, Morgan MacKinnon would no more betray the men he leads than slit his own throat - not even when he was captured by the French and threatened with an agonizing death by fire at the hands of their Abenaki allies. Only the look of innocent longing in the eyes of a convent-bred French lass could make him question his vow to escape and return to the Rangers. And soon the sweet passion he awoke in Amalie had him cursing the war that forced him to choose between upholding his honor and pledging himself to the woman he loves.

    A hand-picked cadre of warriors, they had the fierce courage of their Scots forefathers, combined with the stealth and cunning of the Indians who lived beside them in the wilderness. Battling the French in a no-holds-barred combat, they forged a new brand of honor, became a new breed of men - MacKinnon's Rangers. Iain MacKinnon had been forced to serve the British crown, but compassion urged him to save the lovely lass facing certain death at the hands of the Abenaki. He'd defied his orders, endangered his brothers, his men and his mission, all for a woman. But when he held Annie's sweet body in his arms, he could feel no regret.

    Three months ago, governess Serena Barton was let go from her position. Unable to find new work, she's demanding compensation from the man who got her sacked: a petty, selfish, swinish duke. But it's not the duke she fears. It's his merciless man of business - the man known as the Wolf of Clermont. The formidable former pugilist has a black reputation for handling all the duke's dirty business, and when the duke turns her case over to him, she doesn't stand a chance. But she can't stop trying....
