    Lady Katherne's Wild Ride

    Believing that her maid, Martha, killed her wretched uncle defending her mistress from an unwanted attention, Lady Katherine and said maid flee the potential murder charges. However, they are caught and arrested, but soon set free by handsome actor Jeremy Hughes, who gives them places in his troupe until rampant jealousy from the leading lady forces them to be put out. That is not the end of things between Jeremy and Kit, though. It is only the beginning as they come back into each other's lives. Despite being forced or almost forced to wed others, despite prison, and other obstacles, the two are determined to share a love more dramatic than any stage play. *** The unusual setting and interesting details make this an easy to read, fast paced tale. The trials and tribulations the lovers face and the convoluted way they extricate themselves are worthy of the Shakespearean plots they portray. ***

    Good read.

    Lady Katherne 'Kit' Lindsay has resided within her uncle's home for years. During this time, Kit has been treated like a servant. But when her uncle, Sir William, tried to force his attentions upon her late one night, she was compelled to defend her virtue. It was a fight Kit would have lost had the kitchen maid, Martha, not shown up in time. Since Lady Joan, Kit's cousin, always hated having Kit live with them, Kit figured that she had no time to lose. The two women fled. ................. Master Jolly takes Kit as an apprentice. She will be a leading lady on the stage, opposite Jeremy Hughes. Jeremy is well known for being very talented, on stage and with the ladies. Jeremy watches as Kit's acting abilities get better-and-better. Kit and Jeremy cannot help becoming attracted to each other. But danger always surrounds Kit. How can she hope to win Jeremy's true love without the law locating her? ................. **** All-in-all, I found this to be a very good read. There is not as much danger as I thought there would be, yet the plot never slowed down too far. Great for a Summer beach read! ****

    terrific Restoration romance

    Her father Sir Robert Lindsay remained loyal to King Charles II during the parliamentary troubles, but lost everything including his life and heirs leaving only an impoverished daughter Katherine behind at the mercy of her cousin¿s odious spouse. Whenever Lady Joan Pursevant became pregnant, her husband William pressured Lady Katherine to become his paramour, but she has refused. Now William plans to take what he wants claiming payment for all he has done to protect her. However, a servant Martha hits William leaving him dead before he can rape Katherine. --- Knowing one or both will hang, Martha and Katherine flee together into the night where they meet Jeremy Hughes and his troupe performing across the countryside as they head to London for a royal show. Jeremy takes them in and is pleasantly surprised when Katherine shows acting talent and joins the show. As Katherine and Jeremy fall in love and he constantly rescues her, a still alive William continues his ambitious plotting for more wealth, power, and the rape of the innocent Katherine. --- LADY KATHERINE¿S WILD RIDE is a terrific Restoration romance starring a likable woman in peril and her champion who not only risks his life to keep her safe, but mentors her that you only have one time at living so make the most of it. The support cast from real persona like the monarch and actress Nell Gwynn and Lord Rochester to the literary players like the villain and his wife add to a fine pairing as she lands in one dangerous caper after another while he daringly leaps in afterward to protect his beloved. --- Harriet Klausner
