Meet the Author

Connie Brockway
While on a tour of Scotland in 1997, Connie Brockway fell in love. With the country. Since she was traveling with her husband, David, at the time, this was a good thing. She fell in love with clear, cold lochs and pine-cloaked mountains, red stag and single malt whisky, and most of all the proud and sometimes tragic history of this wonderfully evocative country. Once home, she found it impossible to do anything but write a romance set there.

    Exquisite romance

    As a little girl, Fia Merrick¿s mother confronted her father for his betrayal of her clan. The Earl of Carr simply killed his wife throwing her from a cliff. Avarice being his moral center, Carr killed off two more wealthy spouses. As an adult she fled her odious father by running off with an elderly aristocrat. Meanwhile, his daughter has learned one lesson from her sire and the only man she ever loved, Thomas McClairen: trust no one. <P> Thomas returns to England after spending time overseas as an indentured servant due to Carr¿s tricks. As part of his vengeance, he disguises himself as a Dunne and kidnaps Fia. He takes her to McClairen Isle where he and Fia fall in love with one another. Though he knows Fia is nothing like her public image of a depraved individual, he still cannot stop thinking that she is Carr¿s daughter. <P> The third novel in Connie Brockway¿s McClairen isle trilogy is an exciting historical romance centering on the redemption of two wounded charcaters through love. The story line is fast-paced as the ¿quartet¿ plays out between the two lead charcaters, her father, and the seemingly ghost of her mother. Fans who enjoyed the first two books will not be disappointed with the conclusion while new readers will seek the previous novels. <P>Harriet Klausner

    I was blown away by this Scottish historical romance.  This author certainly has a descriptive style that draws you in as if you were witnessing the story in person in a front row seat.  Both the hero (Ash) and the heroine (Rhiannon) were badly damaged from war and familial incidents so that both are hesitant to get involved.  But difficult circumstances and dangerous conditions bring them together as they get to know one another quite well, all the while avoiding many hurdles before they understand how the past damaged them and how they could achieve their much-deserved happy-ever-after ending. This is only the first book of a trilogy and I am anxious now to read the other two books in the series.

    Liked it

    Better than the second book in this series, not as good as the first. Liked the main characters, liked their sweet story, not as much intrigue as the first two. I'll definitely keep reading this author.

    Liked it!

    This is my first Connie Brockway book. I came to her from an anthology with her, Eloisa James, and Julia Quinn, both of whom I like. This was a good book. Loved the main characters, loved the back story, loved the intrigue and suspense. The only thing that kept me from loving the book entirely was that it was a bit dark, a little too muc hostility between the main characters in the middle of the book. But i liked it, and I'm looking forward to the next one in the series!

    Great ending to the trilogy!

    This one is the end of the trilogy. Lord Merrick was an evil man through-and-through. He kept his true self hidden from most who only saw his wealth. He cared not for his two sons (from the first two books), but the daughter is a different story. She could be used for his gain! This is Fia's story! <BR><BR> Fia was as intelligent as she was beautiful. Society called her The Black Diamond. Many duels had been fought over her. Long ago she cared for Thomas McClairen, but he broke her heart. When the traitor returned to London, she vowed to remain aloft. But he believed Fia was flirting and endangering his best friend, Pip. Knowing how dangerous the Merrick clan can be, he decided to abduct her to Scotland to save Pip. He did not understand how Fia was really different from her father. Neither expected the passion between them to erupt. <BR><BR> *** Author, Connie Brockway, has done an incredible job of making the characters misunderstand each other, but the reader understand perfectly! Usually books like that make me want to strangle the two main characters, but not in this one. The hero and the heroine each have valid reasons to keep quiet. Fantastic conclusion to this trilogy! ***

    A Great Read

    Do not start reading Connie Brockway's latest release, McClairen's Isle: The Ravishing One, unless you don't have to be anywhere or do anything for awhile! The Ravishing One grabs your attention and keeps it for the duration of the story. The Ravishing One is the third installment of the McClairen's Isle trilogy. It's a wonderful conclusion to the Merrick saga, but can easily survive as a stand alone book. The back story is deftly woven throughout The Ravishing One, giving any reader a solid foundation. I would recommend The Ravishing One to anyone wanting a great read.
