Publisher's Summary

Centuries ago, valiant men and courageous women engaged in daring adventures as they helped their fellow man. In the country of Cordovia, the people enjoy their new-found liberty, but all is not well. A group of powerful men plan to take over the small country and replace the leader with a king.

With the help of a bold highwayman and a pastor's daughter, they try to save their country from being taken over by a power-hungry leader. As they strive to stop the Kingmen and thwart their plans, Christine finds herself falling in love with Austin Knight. The only problem with their relationship is that she thinks he is her knight in shining armor instead of a highwayman. If she finds out his trade, what will her reaction be? As a pastor's daughter, will love override her values?

The story continues

Book 2 of the series, this one takes place several years later. Now the Kingsmen are starting trouble. Wanting to take over Cordovia and bring back the strict and hateful rule to the land. It will not happen as Austin Knight--known to a few as the Highwayman--and Christine, the friend of Robin and Daniel and the pastor's daughter work together to defeat the Kingsmen from taking over. Thus a wonderful story of courage, strength, and determination is weaved, leaving, in the end, two people who realize in their hearts that they are meant to be.

Once again, Linda Weaver Clarke enchants you with a wonderful story that gives you a laugh here and there and leaves you unwilling to turn the audiobook off. Whether you listen to this tell or prefer to read it, you will enjoy it immensely.

Great Blend of Adventure and Romance

This is the second book in The Rebel Series, which is based in the 1700s in the fictional land of Cordovia. After overthrowing the corrupt king and his court in the first book, the rebels settle down to enjoy their freedom under a new government. But the kingsmen are still plotting to return a king to the throne, and the first step of their plan involves the theft of a treasured item. Austin and Christine, the highwayman and the pastor's daughter, join forces to find the item and stop the kingsmen from oppressing Cordovia again.

This was an enjoyable listen, a clean historical read with a little bit of Christian flavor. Although Christine is the pastor's daughter, the sermons and Christian message weren't heavy handed. The characters in the first novel made an appearance, but you could read this book as a standalone without reading the first book.

This book was a great blend of adventure and romance. I love a book with an intelligent and strong female protagonist, and Christine was a good one. She was interested in the workings of the government and making her country a better place, and she used her head to make it that way. Austin had the same goals, he just had a different way of getting things done. I thought they made a great match.

The narration was done well, Carolyn Kashner narrated the first book and I always appreciate consistent narration through a series. She had a great range of accents for the characters and a pleasant voice to listen to. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Fun and entertaining book!

Linda Weaver Clarke is a talented writer of historical fiction. I enjoyed this in "regular" book format, but loved it in the Audible version. With the talents of narrator Carolyn Kashner, the characters come to life. It is so fun and enjoyable to listen as she tells the story. This is a great relaxing way to read.

The Highwayman of Cordovia is the second book of the new Rebels of Cordovia series by Linda Weaver Clarke. I love reading a series and seeing characters from a previous book in the series reappear. It's wonderful to see how things turned out for them.

This book is the story of Christine, a pastor's daughter and Austin. Austin and Christine had been friends as youth and separated through the years. As their paths cross again after many years, things spark up between them. Yet their lives do not appear to be headed in the same direction.

Christine begins to fall in love with Austin but is not aware of his true self and would not approve of the life he is leading. The twists and turns will keep you turning the pages. These books express good moral values and are very enjoyable.
The book is a clean Christian read and historical in nature, which I enjoy. It was a good book and I look forward to the 3rd book in the series.
I received an Audible version from the author for my honest review which I have given.

A wonderful family friendly tale.

This is the second in the series but it can easily be enjoyed as a stand alone story. Younger listeners will especially enjoy this romantic adventure. I enjoyed the characters and I liked that some of the characters from the first book also made an appearance here.
The sweet romance and high adventure kept me entertained right to the end.
I'd definitely recommend this sweet, clean romantic series.

I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy.

Entertaining Robin Hood-Type Adventure

The Highwaymen of Cordovia by Linda Weaver Clarke continues the adventures that started in The Rebels of Cordovia, an entertaining Robin Hood-type saga. In the first book, we met the daughter of a local baker, Robin, who secretly taught a small group of vigilantes to fight for basic freedoms against a tyrant king who taxed his subjects into extreme poverty. In the second book, we meet the daughter of a preacher, Christine, who besides her daily chores and visits to the less fortunate, she writes articles that reveal corruption that remain in the upper classes after the king’s exile, especially in a group that call themselves “The Kingsman.”

This story basically begins when Christine’s borrowed carriage is accosted by a group of highwaymen who attempt to steal valuables from her. Thankfully, these highwaymen are truly like the legendary Robin Hood, who only steal from the rich and give what they steal back to the poor. The rest of the story is how Christine and one of the highwaymen discover they are fighting for the same cause, how one of the handsome highwaymen saves her from the leader of the Kingsmen who wants her dead, and how they fall in love in the process.

Carolyn Kashner narrated the Audible version of this audiobook, which was very enjoyable. She varied her voices for both male and female characters and inflected just the right amount of emotion in all the right places. I really look forward to listening to the next great adventure in The Rebels series!

Another rousing tale

I want to live in Cordovia where all of these adventures take place! I didn’t get to listen to the book straight through and that made it harder for me to get into the characters. But when I finally got a chunk of time they grew on me fast. Always a lot going on in this series!

Delightfully Clean Romance

Picture a beautiful heroine who can bake buns and wield a whip with precision. Picture a hero that can smell a murder plot in time to top it and tenderly visit sick children on the side. Picture a fantasy land in danger or losing its freedom if good men and women do nothing - but thanks to good people like the hero and heroine....
Good clean romance, fun listen!
