    OH MY GOD!!!!!!

    This is the first 'romance' novel I have read. This book got me hooked on all other romance novels. I love how Anne has that fiesty nature. This is such a good book. A definate all nighter and such a page turner. The author could've stopped the story in several places, but I'm so glad she didn't. I can't say enough how much I LOVED this book!!!!!!

    Lady Anne's Dangerous Man

    Lady Anne's illusions about love come crashing down when she overhears her betrothed, Edward, conspire to give her to King Charles following their wedding. In exchange for her purity, Edward will be promoted. Immediately, she flees to her father, a judge. Though he can not break the contract without great consequences, her father does arrange for a highwayman to give Anne shelter in exchange for freedom. Gentleman Johnny is no ordinary thief. He's very much a Robin Hood sort, and soon wins Anne's heart. However, the road before them is treacherous. Edward is hot on their trail and the plague is rampant in the land. It will take cunning, courage, and love to save the lives of two lovers. .................. Hearkening back to Robin Hood, this fast paced novel never lets up on the action. Anne begins as a weak, sobbing heroine who undergoes a transformation into a strong, capable woman, worthy of being at the side of her rogue. Johnny will charm you thoroughly, in direct contrast to Edward who is totally obnoxious and vile. Secondary characters enrich the landscape, making for a truly enjoyable read.

    amusing rollicking seventeenth century romp

    In the modern year 1665 virtue is not rewarded at least in the court of King Charles II. Lady Anne Gascoigne knowing she must do something to keep the stalking regal from taking her virginity, turns to the strongest of her suitors Edward Carter, the Earl of Waverby as she assumes once he deflowers her on their wedding night, she will be safe from royal assault. However, Anne is mortified to learn that her fiancé bartered her virginity with Charles II in consideration of future favors. --- With the help of her father, Anne flees the castle. Her dad also arranges for the illegitimate nobleman, the notorious highwayman, Gentleman John Gilbert, to keep his beloved daughter safe until he can arrange a new betrothal. John accepts the mission because he owes a debt of honor or this unrecognized son of a duke would have been hung. However, to his chagrin John desires the beautiful and feisty Anne who returns his need, making him wonder how honorable he truly is when all he wants is to bed his ward. --- Mindful of Fielding¿s Tom Jones, LADY ANNE¿S MOST DANGEROUS MAN is an amusing rollicking century seventeenth romp that uses historical tidbits to paint a depraved court as a background to the romantic adventures of John and Anne. The lead pairing is superb as his brain says honor but his other head says are you nuts (no pun intended) with her sweet seduction encouraging him. As the outlaw and the lady fall in love with the regal retinue looking for her, fans will wonder will they or will they not take her off the virgin commodity exchange. --- Harriet Klausner
