Definitely the best of the trilogy! Even though the whole "I'll know my hero the second I see him" bit was a tad much, the rest of the book more than made up for it. Angelica's story didn't have any of the ridiculousness of her sisters'--the "I love him but he'll never be able to love me back, so even though the sex is great a Cynster has to marry for love, oh well, woe is me" drawn out drama that just felt like it was there to make the book longer. This one had none of that feeling of wasted space. Instead, the drama is kept drawn to a nice edge throughout, and the romance--in spite of Angelica's sixth-sense--is well-written and believable. And now I'm back to working my way through the original series--Spencer's (Vane's) book is up next!

Actually, it is better than the last several series written by this author. Lately she has written a lot of books that deal with the exact same plot: man and woman must travel great distances under less than ideal circumstances while eluding capture and long they way the woman seduces the reluctant man into falling in love. A person can only write so many of the same story before they all start sounding alike, which the Black Cobra series is most remarkable for (four books, all exactly the same plot). At least this one was less travel and more falling in love. The plot went along great, I just wish (without giving any of it away!) than a little more attention had been given to how the first two sisters react to the man their youngest sister chooses. I think that was glossed over a little to conveniently. Otherwise, the best of the three in the series for sure.

Terrible. I couldn't even finish reading this book, The whole thing was so silly. The woman in this book is so childish, She plays a game with the man throughout the whole book. I couldn't even tell if she really loved him or just wanted him to love her. Don't waste your time.

Overall, this book was okay. I was a little bothered by the repetitive use of certain words and once there was part of the plot where I was like, "Really?". But, it is hard not to fall in love with the two main characters. It starts off a bit slow, but once you reach a certain part in the book, it's worth it.

I liked this one. I really enjoy the Cynster Series as a whole. It makes for a good read. The way the family history was woven into this one as well as its predecessors was well done.

When I first started reading Laurens I found her pattern of alpha males finding and coping with the one female their warrior souls demanded really quite delightfuy realized. Maybe Laurens herself is finding it hard to kep this pattern fresh, or maybe it is me. I thought this novel dragged. The alpha male has morphed from protective warrior to possesive hunter. I don't think that metaphor change quite tracks as comfortably as the warrior one. The saving grace for me is that the heroine was quite as dominating as the hero. The dynamic of competition for supremacy in the relationship was entertaining but not believable.

I liked this book much better than the second in the series. There was much more action and less pondering of every event and thought. It was an excellent ending to the series about the Celia and Martin Cynster's three daughters. Although it's tough to believe that Martin would be that weak of a character being, born a Cynster. The ending created a lead-in for the next book in the Cynster series. It was good the see the Bar Cynster together again.

This is the third book in Stephanie Laurens¿ trilogy of three Cynster sisters who are targeted by a mysterious Scotsman. Angelica Cynster is the last and youngest of the sisters, all of whom had sworn not to marry until they find the ¿one¿. The first two sisters found their heroes while trying to get away from the minions hired to kidnap them and bring them to Scotland. Angelica spots her man across a crowded ball room in London. Tall and darkly handsome, she finds out he is the Viscount Debenham, a man who has been away from the ton for several years. During the ball, they take a stroll out onto the patio and the next thing she knows, Angelica is in a coach and off to an unknown estate.At last, we find out who the mysterious Laird is from the previous books. The Cynsters thought he had died in the previous book, so they had relaxed their vigilance with Angelica. Angelica remains convinced that Debenham or Dominic Guisachan the Earl of Glencrae as she discovers, is her hero and resolves to give him a chance to redeem himself. Hints of the reasons behind his fixation with the Cynster women have been in the previous books, but this latest book gives us the full explanation. His family has a long ago history with the Cynsters and he is being forced to carry out this kidnapping or there will be dire consequences for his clan folk.Angelica is a typical Cynster, brash and fearless, willing to jump in and help her man. She sets some conditions of her own and he is forced to agree to get her to go to Scotland with him. Thus begins Angelica¿s chance to have a lifelong love match that all Cynsters aspire to. Dominic is a sympathetic character, doing something that is obviously opposite to his own morals. There is lots of chemistry between Angelica and Dominic but they also have big areas of disagreement that keeps the relationship from getting boring. Like all Cynster novels, there is a villain to be vanquished and lots of Cynsters to keep things interesting. All in all a very satisfying end to an excellent trilogy. I couldn¿t wait to read this book and it was so worth the wait!

I adored the first two books in this series which I was happy for after reading the disaster of the Cobra Quartet series. The conclusion to the series did not disappoint. Angelica is the most adventurous and headstrong of the three Cynster sisters and when this was alluded to in the previous books I was prepared to find her irritating as often times the headstrong heroines let their stubbornness override their sense of reason. Surprisingly she was so well portrayed as both adventurous, strong willed and very intelligent but not one to shoot herself in the foot for the sake of stubbornness. I really came to admire her character, strength and heart. Glencrae also was amazingly likeable despite having orchestrated the kidnapping of three women. We learn the reason behind his mother¿s crazy ultimatum to ¿ruin¿ one of the Cynster girls and I was impressed with the extent Glencrae went to try and retain his honor while trying to carry out her despicable order for the sake of his entire clan.The adventure of making it back to Glencrae¿s home, fooling his mother into thinking she has gotten her revenge and seeing Angelica and Glencrae fall in love was fun filled and I especially enjoyed seeing all of the previous Cynsters involved in the action. The Cynster books are truly where Stephanie Laurens shines and both the heroes and the heroines are unforgettable.

I really like how the supposed villain in the first book is the hero in the final story. These two were my favorite characters and their chemistry was electric. The ending seems somewhat fantastical, but its a romantic fiction, so I'm not complaining:P Definitely recommend this one!
