Overview

* A Romance Writers of America RITA finalist for best Long Historical Romance *

Broken Dreams and Second Chances...

Honed by danger and haunted by the past, Lord Michael Kenyon finds it easy to risk his life for his country’s sake. But in the shadow of Waterloo, he faces a far more dangerous threat—the loss of his heart to the beautiful battlefield nurse who saves his life, yet can never be his.

Called a saint for her virtue and selfless courage, only Catherine Melbourne knows the tragic flaw at the core of her spirit. In Michael Kenyon, she sees the strength and kindness she craves, yet for honor’s sake she must conceal her love and send him away. Even when freed from her empty marriage, she conceals the truth because of the bleak knowledge that she can never again be any man’s wife.

Then fate offers Catherine a fortune, a title, a heritage for her daughter—if Michael will impersonate her husband on a visit to a wild Cornish island. Reluctantly he agrees to the masquerade. But what begins as a simple journey leads them into a shattering vortex of danger and betrayal—and a fiercely passionate love that can no longer be denied.

Editorial Reviews

“Rarely have I read a book about two such wonderful characters...Catherine is a beautiful, intelligent woman with integrity and Michael a noble, moral hero...Books of quality such as Shattered Rainbows can only raise the standard for all romance novels. This is one of the best books of this year or any year.”

Meet the Author

A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USAToday bestselling author, Mary Jo Putney was born in Upstate New York with a reading addiction, a condition for which there is no known cure. Her entire romance writing career is an accidental byproduct of buying a computer for other purposes.

Her novels are known for psychological depth and intensity and include historical and contemporary romance, fantasy, and young adult fantasy. Winner of numerous writing awards, including two RITAs and two Romantic Times Career Achievement awards, she has six times had books listed among the Library Journal’s top five romances of the year, and three times had books among the top ten romances of Booklist, the magazine of the American Library Association.

Her favorite reading is great stories, but in a pinch she’ll settle for the backs of cereal boxes. She’s delighted that e-publishing can now make available books that have been out of print.

    Well it's Mary Jo, what can I possibly say.....? I think with eqch of the Fallen Angel books I have said "this is my most fave one" well yeah!! The hidden emotional turmoil sets a completely different mood through most of the book, then there is the action!!!! Oh wow just amazing and of course a glimpse into some historic timelines is also fun for me!

    The best title in the 'Fallen Angels' series

    All of the books in the 'Fallen Angels' series are very good reads, but by far, 'Shattered Rainbows' is the best one. Two very wonderful, yet human characters, an exciting plot, and yes, a nice ending make for a book that I was sorry to see come to an end. If you read the Fallen Angels books in order, the back story of 'Shattered Rainbows' makes sense--the first book in the series, 'Thunder and Roses', contains a plot line that is key to understanding Michael's actions in the first part of the book. All in all, an excellent part of an enjoyable series!

    A Wonderful Book

    Like all of Mary Jo Putney's books, this book is worth buying, while so many in the industry aren't. The reason I'm writing this is to point out that this is actually one of her earlier stories, it came out years ago originally, and I am very happy to see that it's now on shelves again. I hope she continues reprinting the earlier books, for they've been the very devil to track down. Also, the 'mysterious Caroline' mentioned in the other comment, appears in 'Thunder and Roses', one of the earlier books in MJP's series of Fallen Angels. (Don't worry about her, she caused much harm, and absolutely no good.) Honestly, read them all. They are actual books. My favorites are below.

    THE PERFECT SHATTERED HERO

    Mary Jo Putney brings to life two heartwarming characters; a woman with many virtues but holds a secret too terrible to reveal to the man she loved and a man filled with desire for the one woman he thought could never be his. So what you have is undeniable sexual tension especially when the two said people are thrown onto an island and was `¿forced¿¿ to live in the same room, due to their `¿husband and wife¿¿ façade. But this book does contain rather poignant and thrilling incidents such as the blood transfusion episode, a method that was considered potentially fatal in the 1800s, and the `¿hide and seek¿¿ game on a deserted scary island involving the villains running after the good guys. Although the novel comes in a complete package ¿ romance, action, drama and heartstopping revelations¿ the flow is a little off and the whole `¿Skoal island¿¿ seems too illusory. There was also a mention of a woman named `¿ Caroline¿¿ who had destroyed Michael¿s heart before, but there seemed to be no closure there and we readers are left wondering as to what really happened to her. Well, you gotta read the book to know what iam talking about. But other than the mentioned negative aspects of the book, the positive far outweigh them. After all, the hero is hunky and TO DIE FOR, a wounded heartthrob that women would positively swoon over. Who says there is no pot of gold waiting at the end of the rainbow has not met Michael Kenyon!
