this was okay. a little bit crazy and some wierd unresolved side stories, but i guess that is what the other novels are for. not sure i will pick up the rest of the series. lead is a really nice man, but story is totally unreaalistic for the time period. nobody wealthy married an orphaned servant with no name, and certainly the rest of the household would never have encouraged it.

I won't rush right out to pick up the rest, but I will pick them up over time, I'm sure.

I really enjoyed this one. I'm not sure where the other reader thought the main character was a pedophile, so don't let the comment turn you off to reading it for yourself. It was a sweet and heartwarming story. Maybe it would have been more enjoyable to others if they had read the Highland Series first, since this book is more of a continuation of the life. I will definitely read the rest of this series.

A free 165 page story that is a continuation of the Highlander series and the MacGreagors into America Colorado late 1800's. And the servant girl was starved and small so she did not look her age; he did not let himself become interested in her til after she 'confessed' her age to him - so there. A very good romantic continuation of the Highlander series with an excerpt from the next story about the demented ex?wife.

It is not uncommon for someone raised in an oppressive environment ( like an orphanage) to be physically and emotionallystunted.......even in this day and age. My grandfather married my grandmother in 1943 and he was 25 and she was 15. I would not call him a deviant. The main characters in this book are 26 and 21. The world was a different place then. This book is well written, does not have the on going lovers angst used in most books as a filler. It keeps your interest and sheds some light on the plight of people in servitude.

At the time this novel is set, it was not unusual for girls to be wed at 14. Life expectancy was much shorter in those days. Trying to impose our modern mores on an historical novel will only frustrate you.

Again, Mart Talbot spins a sweet romance with oodles of characters to love and hate; honest intregue and twisty turns. But what appeals the most to me is that there is no fowl language nor is there any impolite bedroom scenes.

Characters are a little hard to keep "straight "....

This book kept my attention and I read it straight through. Very unusual for me, though I enjoy reading books don't normally hold my attention for long periods.

I truly enjoyed this book. The ending with the mysterious black stallion was a bit bizarre though...

Was ok story but did have alot of "filler". Had that amount of excessive filler been reduced, book would have been more enjoyable to read overall.

Boring. Just bad. The premise of the male lead being attracted to a servant, a girl he describes as a child and who is repeatedly said to look no more than 14, is disturbing and revolting. Eew - who wants to read about a latent pedophile being in love with a child and having his friends and family encourage the pervert! I suppose some of the side stories of supporting characters might have been engaging somewhat but the main character romance story was repellant.
