Overview

An unloved English heiress: When shy Maryssa Wylder refuses an arranged marriage, her father exiles her to his isolated holdings in Ireland, a hell he claims is populated by savages eager to slit English throats. On her journey, she is robbed by the Black Falcon, an Irish highwayman who curses all with the Wylder name. A brigand he may be, yet she can't forget the way he looks at her--his dangerous passion piercing her lonely heart.

A dispossessed Irish prince: Tade Kilcannon has every right to hate the Wylders. Though his ancestors were Irish kings, the English have stolen his birthright, giving it to Bainbridge Wylder, a ruthless English overlord who drives the Irish crofters from their homes. Though the people of the glen think Tade Kilcannon is a rakehell, in truth, he is the Black Falcon, a masked patriot who bedevils the English. But this rogue's heart is untouched until Maryssa Wylder saves his family from marauding soldiers.

A love worth defying two worlds: Maryssa blossoms because of Tade's tenderness, but he knows that to love the English daughter of his family's great enemy is impossible. Then disaster strikes the glen, throwing Tade's fate and the future of those he protects into Maryssa's hands. Maryssa faces a heart-wrenching choice, one which may cost her the very life of the man she loves.

A graduate of Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, she spends her free time reading, hiking and continuing her quest to find a recipe for the perfect scone. Her favorite activity, however, is playing dragon with her grandchildren whose imaginations never fail to amaze her.

This is the third book I've read by this author and I have really enjoyed all of them! Ms. Cates tells an excellent story with well developed characters, beautiful, descriptiv e scenes and historical settings that are highly suspenseful! I happen to love very detailed story telling so I don't mind a lengthy book as long as they're as good and as well done as this one! Fantastic love story! Bring on the next one!

The story was okay but drawn out. The story did make you realize just what the English did to the Irish and to Scotland. Sad...

Reading this book became quite a chore very quickly. The author seriously needs to find an honest editor that will tell her to cut out half of the rambling descriptions and all of the overplayed emotional turmoil. It just was too much.

A slow start, language challenges but if you push through a great romantic novel. Love the characters Marryssa and Tade what they both had to endure and in the end their love concurred above everything else. The author may have been a little over descriptive for some as well as the language but overall it was a terrific love story .

Tade a deposswd Irish lord and an emotionally abused daughter of the man who stole the lord's anstesteral home and you get an old school historical romance. Fortunately this one leaves out abductions and quasi rapes between the two star crossed lovers. Tame is a well developed character who grows throughout the book. Maryassa is also well developed. There are several side characters worth knowing too. Please read this very enjoyable book.

I simply loved it! The only thing i wish was that it had an epilogue. I would have liiked to know how it all tied up. Did she have a boy r a girl? Did they move to America? Did her Dad and they get the castle back? Loved this book even the ending but could have a sequel!!!!

Originally published under the title “NIGHTWYLDE” by Kimberleigh Caitlin, this is a beautifully written story with a compelling hero and a wonderful heroine. You will not be disappointed. The author has now republished it under her more well known name of Kimberly Cates. It’s a beautiful and poignant love story... I highly recommend this one!
