This is an excellent book that i just couldn't put down and didn't want it to end. It contains just the right amount of suspense and romance. The author puts together wonderful characters that you want to read about again. I have and will continue to buy Catherine Anderson's books.

Keegan¿s Lady is one of the sweetest romance books I have ever read. Full of tender moments that may make you shed a tear or two Keegan¿s lady is a touching tale of two people who have been hurt deeply both physically and emotionally that come together and are able to help each other heal. The author touches on some very emotional and troubling issues of rape and abuse. This however is not a depressing read, but a very uplifting and touching story of hope and courage.The heroine, Caitlin, has not had the best life and because of this is fearful of all men except her younger brother. This character is very human with imperfections that make her a very memorable character. She deals with her problems and with some help is able to find the courage to overcome her deeply held fear of men.Ace is a typical alpha male type hero in that he doesn¿t take crap from nobody and knows how to get what he wants. Unfortunately he learned the hard way having to help take care of his family from a very young age after the death of his stepfather. Though quick of temper and a little rough around the edges, Ace is a very honorable man and owns up to his mistakes. When he realizes that he has hurt an innocent woman he does what he thinks best to take care of it.If a tale of hope, courage, and love is what you are interested than look no further than Keegan¿s Lady by Catherine Anderson.

I really enjoy emotional stories in which one of the protagonists has a major obstacle to overcome. While Keegan's Lady fit that bill in some ways, I felt that the emotions were not well-balanced and consequently it fell short in other ways. It seemed that the main emotions that permeated a large part of the story were fear, anger and sometimes, hatred, which gave it a rather heavy feel. It seemed to lack the wonderful humor that I've seen in some of Catherine Anderson's other stories. In my opinion, the love feelings between Ace and Caitlin were not as fully developed as they could have been, and the sexual tension was minimal, therefore it was difficult for me to find them fully believable as a couple. It was somewhat easier to sense when Caitlin began falling in love with Ace, though not entirely apparent, but I was hard pressed to say exactly when Ace fell in love with Caitlin. While there were some tender moments in the story, those scenes didn't really dig deep enough into the characters psyches to suit me and also seemed to end far too quickly. Consequently, I felt that the story was a bit lacking in true romance and what I term swoon-worthy moments. I think that there were some opportunities for such moments, but again they were handled with too much brevity and ultimately fell rather flat. The romantic moments that did exist simply did not seem to build on one another in a meaningful way to bring out that heart-stopping love that I have come to expect from romance novels. I think this was a result of the book being too focused on the external conflicts rather than Ace and Caitlin's relationship.I found the hero and heroine of the story to be pretty likable. Ace was a little more rough around the edges than other Catherine Anderson heroes I have read, but in a rather lovable way. He didn't show quite as much vulnerability as I like to see in my heroes, and I thought that he was a bit too heavy-handed at times, not always allowing Caitlin to make her own choices. It wasn't too bad though, as he always seemed to have her best interests at heart. It's hard not to like a guy who grants a lady her fairy tale dreams, and exercises restraint even when she tries his patience in extreme ways. I also appreciated his intelligent, intuitive nature that helped him to understand things about Caitlin that she may not have even understood herself. Caitlin was an admirable character in that she had the strength to endure the many years of her father's abuse. She had also cared for her brother, Patrick, in many different ways throughout those years, and showed a lot of selflessness toward others. In many ways, I thought that Caitlin's fears and actions were fairly believable for someone who had suffered as she had, but I felt that the story might have been better if she had faced her fears and begun to trust Ace in a more gradual way. Instead she had one explosive moment of seeming insanity, followed by a cathartic confession and gentle lovemaking which seemed to magically set everything to rights. Unfortunately, this approach just didn't work well for me. Overall though, I thought that Ace and Caitlin were good characters, they just weren't explored as fully as I would have liked to see, and I think that the story could have benefited from one or the other lightening up a bit.There were some interesting secondary characters as well. Ace's brothers were a bunch of sweet, lovable guys. Of course, Joseph, the oldest, was the one who got the most scenes, but even so, I felt that the author only scratched the surface with his character. Most of the time, Joseph had an outward intensity which made him seem almost constantly irritated and grumpy, but his final scenes in the book with Caitlin and Patrick belied something more lying beneath the surface waiting to be explored. It will be interesting to see how Joseph's character develops when he becomes the hero of his own book in Summer Breeze. I actually think that Caitlin's bro

A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do! And this was the main vein running through this story along with threats of revenge. The ending was rather wrapped up to neatly, as frantic proof was explained and justiified to save Ace from a hanging.

Truly enjoyed this story. As heartwrenching as it was to know what each character suffered by the hands of one man and the choices each had to make to overcome the demons of their past, it was a book worth reading. I cried for each character's tale and I also laughed and cheered for them to the very end. This one's a keeper.

When Caitlin O'Shannessy was a young girl she wished for a hero. Someone who would stand up for her and protect her. Now, Caitlin is all grown up and she finds her hero in the most unlikely situation. Ace Keegan has returned to No Name, Caitlin's home town, to exact revenge on the 3 men who swindled his family, murdered his step-father and raped his mother. One of those men just happens to be Conor O' Shannessy, Caitlin's father. It is on this dramatic stage that one of the best romances I've read in a long time takes place. The author writes old-fashioned romances which never fail to deliver on an emotional level. Although explicit sex is not employed as is often the case by other contemporary authors it does not detract but rather enhances the story being told. I have read several of Catherine Anderson's Books and I have several more on my "to read" stack. Highly recommended!

The characters of Ace and Caitlin were fantastic. I felt like I knew them with each new page. Her courage and his devotion were there throughout the story not just here and there. The final climax had me in tears! I was sorry to finish the book! I wanted more. I was actually distraught at having no epilogue...wished for a sequel.

this was tthe first book of Anderson's that I ended up reading. I absolutely LOVE this book! it represents the hardships of a relationship and having to overcome the past. It's is simply amazing!!! It's a combination of humor, love, action, and a bit of mystery.

I really enjoyed the book I could not put it down but I was a bit disappointed in the ending I would have wanted to know more about the rest of the family like the reactions Mrs. Paxton and Eden had when they found out about Caitlin. If Patrick found love if there were any kids and so on I would have liked for there to be a part two to this book I feel the ending was cut short.
