Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
First encounters between heroes and heroines should indeed be memorable, but here, Skye (East of Forever) has gone overboard with incredibly purple prose, and clichd, far-fetched names (Black Lord, Diablo, Little One, Beauty, Silver). Thankfully, the purple quickly fades into a darn good story and all is forgiven. Silver St. Clair is captured by the Black Lord, a highwayman who, as luck would have it, is really Lucien Delamere, heir to the richest title in Regency England. His midnight forays are a search for revenge against those who had captured him five years earlier and made his life a living hell. But Silver is the target of less scrupulous bandits because of a much coveted perfume called Millefleurs manufactured by the family business she and her brother recently inherited. The trouble is, the formula was lost when Silver's father was murdered. The appearance of Silver into Luc's life has muddled his cause and takes him way away from his purpose-or so he thinks. A pinch of mystery, a dash of intrigue make for a wonderfully high adventure. (Sept.)

A highwayman that gets to your soul. In the 1980s I watched and loved a movie called The Lady and The Highwayman. Luc, in Christina Skye’s COME THE NIGHT, is even more adventurous, sexier, more vulnerable emotionally and intuitive. The romantic tension sizzles between Silver St. Clair and the unforgettable highwayman that she encounters near her family’s lavender farm that she struggles to save. You can almost smell the scent of lavender and roses, along with true love in the air in COME THE NIGHT. I enjoyed all of Ms. Skye’s “The Delameres” series, but COME THE NIGHT is my all-time favorite. A handsome highwayman who, beneath his dark mask, happens to belong to one of the wealthiest families in England, weaves a delightfully spicy romance. If Silver can convince Luc to let go of his past emotional scars, a rare love to last a lifetime will become hers. That is, if they can survive the deadly traps enemies set for each of them along the path to love’s wildest desires. COME THE NIGHT is a beautifully written historical romance. Please come back with more Delamere family books, Ms. Skye. We readers will take all the heroes we can get if they’re like Luc.- Reviewed by Camilla Compton

Come the Night was awesome. I am not a person to write with flowery words. I just know when I like a book. If you like this genre you will certainly love Christina Skye.

Dark, dangerous and delightful. Beautiful language and sizzling romance. What more do you need than that to get lost in a highwayman's arms?
