This is an amusing historical romantic suspense

In 1831 Lord Julian Monroe returns to Ravenscar, England after three years away. He left the country after he found his wife Lily dead from a bullet wound. His former brother-in-law Richard Langworth holds him culpable for his sister's death and plans to enact revenge...
In 1831 Lord Julian Monroe returns to Ravenscar, England after three years away. He left the country after he found his wife Lily dead from a bullet wound. His former brother-in-law Richard Langworth holds him culpable for his sister's death and plans to enact revenge on Julian.

His mother Lady Corrine, ecstatic that her son has finally come home, wants her son to remarry, but he has no interest in a second wife. Her choice is Miss Sophie Wilkie, niece of her friend Miss Roxanne Radcliffe. Reluctantly he agrees to escort Miss Sophie while his nephew Lord Devlin the self-anointed vampire finds himself attracted to Miss Roxanne. As the pair of couples falls in love on the road from London to Ravenscar; Richard dangerously raises the past leading to Julian learning why he is called the Prince of Ravenscar.

This is an amusing historical romantic suspense starring four strong independent characters. The course to true love is straighter than the Bonneville Salt Flats as there are no twists of consequence, yet the protagonists and the antagonist make for a fun journey. Filled with tension and jocularity especially the witty exchanges between the aunt and the nephew, readers will enjoy the couples on the road and at Ravenscar in Catherine Coulter's family affair.

Ok

Silly and predictable. Vampires? Where did that come from and what did it have to do with plot development? Maybe she's seen too many recent movies. Not what a long time reader would expect.

    A beautiful book! The description of the characters, places, clothes… and the hair, my goodness, the amazing hair these women have! :) Beautiful! If you enjoy historical romance you should definitely read this book! The ‘Prince of Ravenscar’ is a ‘Sherbrooke’ novel and I’m now looking forward to re-reading those to once again visit old friends (there are a couple in here!) and see where these new ones fit in!
    Julian is the main ‘hero’ in this story and he, along with his half-nephew Devlin, are everything you could want in a man… smart, sarcastic, funny, strong, quite sure of themselves and of course, devastatingly handsome! The main women in this story, Corinne (Julian’s mother), Sophie (‘meant’ for Julian) and Roxanne (Sophie’s “on the shelf” aunt) are, as always, smart, absolutely gorgeous, witty and fully capable of taking care of themselves (especially Roxanne!)! Once they all meet and become friends it’s great to be a part of the intrigues they find themselves in! Figuring out the basics of the mystery is not difficult… but you want to keep reading to find out more and are rewarded with some interesting details as to the how and why of it all! You meet several people that you completely love to HATE, which is always fun! There are late night noises and people lurking, plus lots of flirting, which is also fun! It didn’t totally pull me in like her others and I can’t put my finger on exactly why… but all in all it is a wonderful book and I look forward to more

    Worth the read

    It was a good mystery with some surprises. Could see the way the "love interest" was going to go. Loved that it was a good book without being vulgur.

    Okay

    Not Catherine Coulter's best but was fair. The story line jumped too much for me.
