Overview

England, 1663

When Katherine Welles saves the life of a highwayman, she realizes he may be the only avenue of escape from a betrothal to her villainous neighbor. But traveling under the protection of a dashing outlaw--who won't ask directions--is anything but safe. Especially when his searing hot kisses awaken a yearning for something Katherine never knew she wanted.

Nicholas Montford, the exiled Earl of Ashton, returns to England determined to reclaim his family lands. As a highwayman called the Raven, he takes revenge upon the Puritans who thrived while his family suffered. But when he kidnaps heiress Katherine Welles, thoughts of revenge take second place to kissing her soft lips and teasing the mistrust from her eyes. Can he find redemption in the arms of the woman he plans to betray?

The English restoration has begun. Puritans are busy trying to look like royalists and the returning Cavaliers are trying to regain all they have lost. It is a fascinating era and Ms. Black brings the conflicts to life. Dutiful daughter, Katherine Welles, rebels against the marriage planned by her Puritan father. When she secretly saves the life of Nicholas, the Raven, a flamboyant highwayman on the rampage among the local nobility, she sees her way out. In return for saving his life, he will deliver her to her sympathetic aunt in London. Raven has his own agenda. His family fled with Charles the II to France and lost the land the Welles now own. He's back to restore his fortunes, or obtain revenge. Ms. Black leads us on a mad romp from the wilds of Dorset to the court of King Charles with a lass determined to shake off her unpleasant suitor and a man whose deprivations and the revenge he promised his father have stolen his ability to feel any gentler emotions. Or so he thought until Katherine, the woman he is about to betray, begins to melt the ice around his heart. What will happen when she discovers the truth? A great story in an unusual era with lots of twists and turns to keep the reader on her toes. Can't recommend it enough.

The book was not great but not bad. Its a book that i have no desire to read again, but some parts were better than others. With all the great reviews, all have to say to each their own.
