    Another Cosby Masterpiece! Loved it!

    This book was absolutely riveting adventure filled with secrecy, mayhem, brutality, betrayal, trust, faith, hope and love. It has so many twists and turns and more than one shocking surprise. Superbly written, brilliant plotting, setting and dialogue! I can hardly wait for book #2 in this spectacular “The Forbidden Series!” Ms. Cosby definitely has the magic touch of drawing the reader in, keeping them fascinated with anticipation wondering what could possibly happen next! I loved, loved, loved this novel and highly recommend it! It is one readers surely don't want to miss! A total masterpiece in my opinion. Forbidden Legacy — book #1 (Stephan & Katherine) Release date: August 16, 2016!

    Historical Romance

    If you are looking for a fairy tale rather than deep historical fiction then this book might be one you will like. I enjoyed reading a bit about the Knights Templar and researched a few things about them, Robert the Bruce and Edward II while reading this book. As for the story…men committed to God take vows of celibacy and Stephan MacQuistan is ones of those men as are the knights he is in charge of. Finding himself married to Lady Katherine Calbraith is something he never expected – for more than one reason. There is a slow build between them that eventually provides them with a HEA but it takes some doing to get there. I had trouble believing that a woman on her own would be able to escape from the dungeon, make her way some distance to her godfather for help then be sent by him alone with her husband and his men without a lady’s maid or other female as companion on the trip. I also had trouble believing that a woman of status living in that era would have behaved as she did. She was rather mouthy and obnoxious and many times seemed closer to ten than to twenty. She put herself and others in danger and as other reviewers have mentioned, her pride and bickering were wearing. As for Stephan…he had a rough childhood, became a knight, fought and had expectations for his life and they probably included dying without a wife and doing so on a battlefield. His ability to adapt and his kindness were great qualities. His lack of people skills in regard to women was perhaps overdone because he did have a sister and mother for at least awhile. There was a lot of posturing, pounding of chests and competition for supremacy between the two of them that could have easily been resolved if they had been willing to communicate with one another honestly. I liked the men with Stephan, especially Thomas. It will be interesting to find out who they end up with now that they are freed of their vows taken when they became Knights Templar. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. 3.5 Stars

    Forbidden Legacy

    As we all know, everyone has baggage these days, and it is the same with Sir Stephan MacQuistan and Lady Katherine Calbraith. Sir Stephan longed for his forbidden legacy, his birthright, Avalon Castle, and the title of Earl of Dunsmore. His family was murdered and his castle taken when he was but a young child. Fortunately, after his escape from the devastation of his family and their holding, Stephan was rescued & raised by some Knights Templar. As the story opens, Sir Stephan has just delivered a missive to Robert the Bruce, Scotland’s Sovereign, concerning the betrayal by King Philip of France. King Philip was desperate for some much needed wealth, and was willing to betray the very the Knight’s Templar who had aided him in the past. He organized a plot to arrest, murder and completely destroy the Knight’s Templar and their reputation in order to confiscate their great wealth. One of my favorite descriptive scenes in the book is “Tears gathered behind her lashes. Furious, she glanced toward the hearth. Whispers of blue flame danced into slivers of red, then orange, and as fast became lost in a curl of smoke to disappear up the chimney."“Tell me what happened.” His compassion fractured her composure.” I do love Ms. Cosby’s attention to detail! It really is an added bonus and helps the reader be able to better picture the scene. Reading her novels are like watching a movie in my head. I admit, I’ll miss these characters. I don’t wish to give the entire story away, as there are many twists and turns that seem to crop up in Stephan and Katherine’s relationship that hold ones attention until the end. Admittedly, Diana Cosby has always written her characters with such detail to personality and character. The lead male and female characters have depth, as well as, an often unexpected sizzling chemistry, whether her characters themselves realize it or not. Lady Katherine and Sir Stephan’s characters are written with so much warmth and detail that I didn’t want the story to end. Another important aspect of this book that I like, is how she maintained the respect and place of honor, the Knight’s Templar have held throughout history…. regardless of the deceit and perfidy of King Philip. One BIG REQUEST I have is that her books be made into audio books. Their are several really good narrators/story tellers out their with super sexy accents and proper brogue that would really make her wonderful characters come to life. I adore audio books and almost always buy the ebook as well as the audio book. I’m not sure why Ms. Cosby’s publishers or whomever makes that decision, hasn’t already done it with her other two captivating series. PLEASE, bring her work to audio! It’s just too good and too popular for everyone to miss out on the audible experience.
