A Top 10 Nook Bestseller from a New York Times Bestselling Author!

England & Scotland, 1668

Kendra Chase's brothers are telling her it's high time she get married. But although they've presented her with many wealthy, titled suitors, no man has caught her fancy--until her coach is held up by a dashing, mysterious highwayman. When she and the dangerous man are caught in a compromising embrace and her overprotective brothers insist they wed, Kendra cannot believe it. Are they really desperate enough to match her with an outlaw?

Patrick "Trick" Caldwell is the Duke of Amberley--and also the notorious Black Highwayman, an identity he has assumed in order to right past wrongs and serve his king. But his already complicated life becomes positively convoluted when he finds himself compelled to marry a red-headed temptress he's only just met. Caught in a web of half-truths and forced into a perilous mission, can Trick extricate himself and find love with the woman destined to steal his heart?

Meet the Author

I decided to become a writer in the third grade (or, as my Canadian friends call it, grade three), after winning a "Why My Mother is the Greatest" essay contest and having my entry published in a major newspaper. Seeing my words in print was a thrill! But everyone told me it's too hard for novelists to get published, so after college I spent fourteen years as the CEO of my own jewelry store chain before writing my first book. A mistake? Maybe...but my first heroine, Amethyst, was a jeweler, so at least I took advantage of that wise old saying, "Write what you know." And I learned a good lesson: Don't let other people tell you what you can or can't do!

I write humorous historical romance mostly set in England and Scotland in the 17th and 19th centuries (Restoration and Regency periods). I've been oh-so-lucky to see my books hit bestseller lists all over the world, including the New York Times and USA Today lists, making this second career a real dream come true. I live in Southern California with my family and a constantly shedding cat, and I still think my mother is the greatest!

This was my first book by this author and I just bought more of her different series. I didn't read in order, and had no problem keeping up with this storyline. I loved Kendra and Trick. Enjoyable read! (Ljb)

While this (as all of Lauren Royal's books are) is a standalone story, you will want to read the entire series--they are all that good! Chase sister Kendra refuses to accept marriage to any of the young swains her brother suggests. However, when she is discovered in an apparently compromising position with the man known as the Black Highwayman, she is coerced into marrying the virtual stranger, unaware that he is well known to her brothers as Patrick "Trick" Caldwell, the wealthy Duke of Amberley. Although Trick can't divulge his secrets (after all a promise to a sovereign MUST be kept!), he finally learns to trust Kendra and ultimately, to love her. Ms. Royal's heroines are always strong, intelligent and lovable! And she manages to make the book sensual without tipping over into sleaze, as so many "romance" novels do! Excellent addition to the Chase family saga.

This series is excellent. You must read all to understand the background in this family. This particular book is about Kendra Chase,  sister to the three Chase brothers, Jason, Colin and Ford, who said she did not marry a duke. There is a trip to Scotland which is very interesting. This author brings in historical details of the 1600's which I liked.

This is a quick notice before the story begins: ALL of this is true. This takes place in the real SunClan in June-July. This was when Sunclan was at 'Esyay'. To give you proof this is true, I was one of the main kit's friends. I was Lilykit. Now, let's begin. <p> It was a sunny day, and three kits were playing in a meadow in the famous Sunclan. The most popular clan in that time was full with warriors, kits, apps, and elders. A kit stayed behind, watching them with intense piercing blue eyes. She took note of the kits, Charkit, Amberkit, and Ashkit, who were playing with a mossball and giggling. <br> She kept an eye on the one playing on the right. She knew it was Amberkit. The kit, quickly padded over to the playing trio. <br> "C-Can I play?" The kit asked, flicking her tail. <br> Charkit stopped the ball, which was under her paw. "Sure." He shrugged, turning to Ashkit and Amberkit. <br> Amberkit nodded. "Yeah! Come join us!" Ashkit turned to the kit and shrugged. <br> "Thanks." The kit nodded. <br> "So, what's your name?" Charkit asked, kicking the mossball to Ashkit. <br> "Lilykit." She said, watching the ball roll to Ashkit. <br> Ashkit caught the ball, passing it to Amberkit. "I'm Ashkit." She said. <br> "Amberkit." The kit said, passing the ball to Lilykit. <br> "Charkit." Charkit said, watching the ball tumble to Lilykit. <br> "Cool." Lilykit mumbled, passing the ball to Charkit. <br> Charkit passed it to Amberkit, and then to Ashkit, and then back to Lilykit. And then she passed it to Charkit, and so on. <br> They all stopped when they heard angered screeches from the deputy of Sunclan and another kit named Sagekit. They were 'fighting', Lilykit thought. Amberkit, Charkit, and Ashkit looked up at them. It was going to be a long day. <br> Three days later, Lilykit was sitting under a tree. She looked around for her three new friends, silently. <br> She saw Amberkit, ready to go to her. But before she could do that, she saw others. <p> NEXT PART LATER!
