Internet Book WatchIn 1667 Chichester, England, the Marquess of Cainewood, Jason Chase, plans to bring Geoffrey Gothard to justice for the evil he did to two of Jason's villagers. Though Jason has plastered award notices throughout the country, he cannot sit idly by and wait for someone to bring Geoffrey to him. When Jason tries to apprehend the abominable Geoffrey, the latter grabs an innocent person as a shield before shooting the former. The shield died in the confrontation. Though not completely healed, Jason begins his quest anew. In Leslie, Scotland, Caithren Leslie must marry within a year to inherit much of the estate. Otherwise, it reverts to her brother Adam, who has not been in the area in over five years. Wearing male garb, Cait heads to London to bring Adam home to take over the clan's lands. The Scottish "lad" meets Jason who realizes she is female. He thinks she is a bounty hunter after Geoffrey. She just wants to be rid of her new companion that she begins to fall in love with just like he does her. Emerald, the second Chase historical romance (see Amethyst) is a passionate tale that brings late seventeenth century England vividly alive. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action from the very first page to the climax. The lead couple is an engaging duo who glitters when together. Sub-genre fans will appreciate Lauren Royal's second novel.
