While i throughly enjoy these novels, what i was able to read, i never was able to finish the last book. The pages would not populate on they would populate 1 at a time before causing my application to stall and force quit. I tested several other books of over 2000+ pages as was this boxed set and encountered no issues. I highly suggest the manager of these files to check them over. In the mean time while i enjoyed the first 2 books i was unable to read further than 10 pages into the 3rd before giving up which is why i rate this set at only 3 stars.

4.5 Stars. I liked the Beauty the best, then the Temptress next and the Countess last. In the Countess, all you heard was "you're leaving, no you're leaving", it got old, but did improve with some twists in the end. The Beauty had more intrigue and suspense. I loved all the character's a lot in this story and they have a part in the last book too. In the Temptress, I found Esmeraude to be a spoiled brat through the first half of the book. If you buy the bundle, it is the best deal, even though the books can stand alone, they are richer to be read together. (ljb)

So you are checking for honest reviews. Let me give you one. This is a really fantastic, up-all-night, page turning series of three Scottish bride tales from the 12th century when men were rogues, rough and oh so soft hearted when it came to the women they desired. Kisses were deep and passionate and lovemaking was naught in haste...on the contrary...these mideval knights and lairds are very sensitive to the slow, and fulfilling act as if they were trained in its very art. And Claire Devareax is a five star writer as we get the benefits all juicy and rolled up in a pretty package! All three tales are so well written and I never once felt that she lagged on either of the three. The characters and the language bring it all together, friends. Trust me. I am not compensated for this review. I enthusiastically rate it four and a half stars out of five!

This was a well-written, excellent series set in the Crusades. The Countess Eglantine de Crevy, a widow, has fled to Scotland to claim an inherited castle. Duncan MacLaren has a claim to the same property, and vows to win both the Countess and the property. They do not expect the passion they find... Jacqueline de Crevy does not want to be possessed for beauty alone and has decided to join the convent. her party is ambushed (in a case of mistaken identity) by a knight, Angus MacGillivray, who is seeking justice. He returned from the Crusades to find his birthright seized. Both are able to look beneath the surface, and they are amazed at what they find. Esmeraude of Ceinn-beithe vows to choose her groom herself, setting up tests and riddles, then fleeing. Bayard of Villonne joins the Bride Quest, with the end goal of receiving a property along with the bride when he wins the quest. Esmeraude will only marry for love, and Bayard only trusts logic. Both are surprised at what they find in each other. I loved all three books in this trilogy. Copy gifted by the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this series. It starts out strong with "The Countess", which is about a woman who is willing to move and change her whole life in order for her daughters to have the life and freedom she wishes for them. "The Beauty" is about a the eldest daughter, who feels she knows where her future lies but discovers that she has another path to follow in her life. "The Temptress" is about the second daughter, who wants to have her life the way she sees it and finds out how taking a wrong path can lead to problems, but is able to grow and change throughout the story.
