The Barnes & Noble Review
Bestselling author Catherine Coulter delivers another Sherbrooke novel with verve and humor in this new historical romance featuring spirited racehorses, a very determined woman, and an equally determined man. Here she returns to the story of handsome Jason Sherbrooke, the twin who fled to America for five years following the romantic fiasco detailed in The Sherbrooke Twins. Now it's Jason's time to return home. When his twin, James, takes him to see Lyon's Gate, a once-great stud farm now for sale, he sees his future. But that future becomes doubtful when Jason learns that the unscrupulous former owner has sold the farm to two different people. The second, equally determined owner is Hallie Carrick, a young woman who may be more horse-mad than Jason. The two arrive at an unorthodox, unconventional compromise: They will both own and run Lyon's Gate. Like Jason, Hallie is convinced she will never marry, but how many women can resist the sight of Jason's good looks?

Coulter keeps up the pace with the blossoming of their inevitable and sweet romance, the excitement of their first race, and the dirty tricks of their opponents. There are plenty of old friends from past Sherbrooke novels to add to the fun. Ginger Curwen

I bought this book to read on my nook and I must say Catgerine Coulter does not dissspoint, however the pagesbonbthe nook continually get stuck and I have to skip ahead to fix it. I have lost some of the story line because of this problem. Itbwas not worth the 9.99 I spent on it. I would have given the book 4 stars if not for this problem.

Lyon's Gate by Catherine Coulter reviewer: Pamela Ackerson (author of Home of the Braves trilogy) This is another Sherbrooke novel. In my humble opinion, I must say it is much better than I expected. It was a clash of two stubborn hearts and minds written with a blend of ingredients that makes you understand why Ms. Coulter is one of the best in the industry. Top notch story, top notch writing.

The story was boring me and I felt like I was missing something when I read the book. The book was missing action and stuff like that. It also made me confused on what happened in the other books that was mentioned here. I feel like the author should have explained more about what happened in the other books in this one for a first time reader of her books like I am. I got confused when I first read the book.

I loved the Sherbrooke Twins and looked forward to the telling of Jason's story. This was a very boring book and I never felt the connection to any of the characters even the ones I loved in the earlier Bride's series. It seemed like another another author wrote this and put Coulter's name on it. Not worth the $$ I paid because I didn't want to go on the library wait list!

I have waited a long time for this book!! This was a great follow-up to The Sherbook Twins. This book will keep you laughing until the end. I did not want this book to end.

I am a huge fan of Catherine Coulter's but this book was so boring and disappointing. I read it in 2 days only because I was trying to get to the exciting part of the book, which never happened.

I was very disappointed in this book. I¿ve read all her historic novels and fine this heroine lacking and undeserving of Jason. Instead she has a heroine that has the same personality as James¿s bride (I didn¿t care for her personality either). There was no story line ¿ no build up. She should have ended it after the first chapter. Catherine hints at the Sherbrooke Twins story and trying to develop a story line from there and failed. Don¿t buy that book either it was lacking too. I usually get through a book in a few days this book took me a few weeks. If you want to read this book buy it used CHEAP or borrow from a library.

After reading less than half, I have to say it's the worst novel she has ever had published. The writing does not flow, I frequently find myself asking 'Where did that line come from?' Frankly, it's a rambling mess with no plot line whatsoever. Coulter seems to relish mentioning every past character she has ever written about, but even that can not save this book. I'm a die hard Coulter fan, so I'm giving it two stars in hopes that the second half of the book gets better, if I can bring myself to finish it.

I'm sorry to say that this novel was very boring. I've always loved the Sherbrookes (especially Douglas & Alex) but this one didn't do them any justice. Jason seems like he needed more character & depth. The reasoning behind his leaving England was not believable, especially for that long (5 years).

I was disappointed in this book. I could easily put it down and I skipped a lot of it because it was simply boring. Not much chemistry between Jason and Hallie and, frankly, neither of them were developed enough for me to really care much about them.

This is probably the worst historical romance novel by Catherine Coulter. As a long time fan of Catherine, I expected this book to be a quick and enjoyable read however it is anything but that. I bought the book a week ago and have not finished reading it. Catherine tries to be witty and comedic in this story however it is simply not funny. The plot is uninteresting and seems to drag on. As of late, I feel like Catherine Coulter's has run out of ideas for her historical romances as her most recents ones are just plain not enjoyable. She should re-read her old historical romance novels such as 'Sweet Surrender', 'Devil's Embrace', 'Devil's Daughter', 'The Sherbrooke Bride' before writing a new one.

Having read all the previous Sherbrooke novels I was delighted with Jason's story. Lady Lydia and Hollis as octagenerians continue to bring delight and laughter into the story. Jason certainly met his match in Hallie and the author warned us we would laugh a lot. The Sherbrooke's through the generations continue to be a close and supportive family. It may be difficult for a reader joining the Sherbrooke family for the first time with Lyon's Gate. However the background information provided bridges earlier happenings. Anyone with a background with horses should truly enjoy the story. I missed the cat races but look for them to reappear in future novels now that there are two sets of twins whose stories hopefully will come in the future.

Jason Sherbrooke returns home again to England after having a dream about his twin brother. Determined to start afresh, he sets out to buy a horse farm, Lyon's Gate, but has a rival for the ownership, one Hallie Carrick. Before either knows what's happening, they find themselves yoked together as partners in business, and despite the constant barbs that fly between them, it turns into a more intimate partnership before too long. However, the road to love is not without potentially dangerous pitfalls. .................. *** As the beloved Sherbrooke clan continues to thrive and add new characters that give it dimension, Ms. Coulter's fans will be well pleased with the results. Warm hearted humor combines with passion to deliver a novel that has all the hallmarks of a classic Coulter. ***

I did not enjoy this novel nearly as much as I did the 'Sherbrooke Twins'- It seemed that the two main characters did not spend enough 'romantic' time together, and did not have the connection that James and Corrie did.

I bought this book yesterday and I finished it the same day. I kept reading it expecting it would get better not because it was really good. I dont know, I skipped alot because I felt it was missing something. Im still kind of undecieded about the book. The middle was ok, had me smiling, but the beginning and the end were...umm. Boring. I hated Jason in the end because he whined alot. And he still called Alex and Douglas Mama and Papa. The dowager duchess (Lady Lydia) had me laughing though. Ok-read but I wouldn't recommend buying it.
