Editorial Reviews

Publisher's Weekly
In Canham's latest dashing historical romance, beautiful French refugee Renee d'Anton...Caught in her uncle's web of scheming, and with her younger brother's life at risk... reluctantly agrees to help the evil Colonel Roth catch highwayman Tyrone Hart, better known as Captain Starlight. When she meets the highwayman, Renee gets a better idea: she'll double-cross Roth and escape with the the handsome outlaw. Entertaining plot twists follow, enlivened by sharply drawn characters and plenty of sex.

The plot moves like a bullet, filled with exciting intrigue. Roth is a truly despicable villain who has me rooting for his nasty, gory, death. Amidst treachery, escapes, and close calls all hurtling towards a final and very satisfying showdown, there is also a grand romance of a knight in rusty, tarnished, and creaky armor and the woman who loves him despite her better judgment.

As with all of Marsha Canham's book, you won't want to put this one down. Found myself wanting the book to continue it was so good!

I liked some of the writer's other stories better, but this story is still creative in it's use of historical events to create a background for the characters. I think I would have preferred that the story begin perhaps in the midst of Finn, Antoine, and the heroine escaping from Paris, rather than have that element of their experience told in retrospect. It would have allowed a more intimate sympathy with what the characters experienced in the moment and helped better shape our understanding of their personalities. With "Through a Dark Mist" and "The Wind and the Sea" I found myself catching my breath during fight scenes and eagerly racing through the pages to see what element of intrigue would insert itself next. This story didn't hold my attention to the same degree although it was still a nice read with some very creative love scenes.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I wanted it to continue on and not end. Loved it.

Everything you want in a swashbuckling romantic adventure. If you ever wished that "The Highwayman" was a full-length novel instead of a poem, this book will give you all the feels!
