  • Good Story - TSTL heroine

    ** 3.5 Stars ** Series: Forbidden #4 Publication Date: 8/6/19 Number of Pages: 214 This book was certainly exciting and action-packed. While it is part of a series, you don’t need to have read the other books in order to enjoy this one. It was a good story, but I almost quit reading it before the half-way point because the heroine was so very, very annoying. She was one of the most TSTL, selfish, self-centered, reckless, inconsiderate and foolhardy characters I’ve ever read. I honestly couldn’t understand why anyone, especially our hero, would come to love her. Luckily, there were fewer situations that allowed her to show her TSTL side after the 40% mark or so. She hadn’t changed – just didn’t have the opportunity to show that side of herself. Elspet McReynolds led a happy life filled with love – until she didn’t. She adored her mother, step-father and step-brother then the unthinkable happened – their Laird, the Earl of Dalkirk, had his knights attack and burn her home, hang her parents, and capture her and her step-brother. He had planned to use her as his mistress, but she managed to escape from Tiran Castle – and now she has to save her beloved step-brother from the dungeon – if he hasn’t already been killed. It is freezing cold and Elspet is on foot with no money and no resources. She had been to friends she thought would help her, but they were going to turn her over to the Earl. Now, she is even more desperate to save her step-brother – he must be suffering terribly. When she sees two travelers, she decides to steal their coin so she can bribe one of the castle guards to free her brother. Except those travelers discover her and give chase and are about to ravish her when – out of the snow comes a hero to rescue her. Sir Cailin MacHugh is traveling in stealth. His father was the former Earl of Dalkirk and Cailin is the rightful heir. Both his father and mother were murdered by his evil uncle who also arranged for Cailin’s murder. Luckily, Cailin escaped that fate and soon joined the Knights Templar. Now, after the secret dissolution of the Knights Templar, he has returned to claim his birthright – with the support of Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland. As Cailin is riding through a nasty winter storm, he hears a scream – then another – and rides to the rescue. He takes the woman, now injured, to the inn in which he is staying so that he can assess her injuries and determine how best to help her. So, imagine his shock and dismay when he awakens from a drugged sleep to find his sword missing – along with the young woman. Furious, he sets out to find the woman and his sword that is the proof of his identity. Thus began an exciting story filled with betrayal, alliances, friendships – and a matchmaking king. My rating for this book is 3.5 stars and it could have easily been 4.5 were it not for the TSTL heroine. I guess the thing that disappoints me most is that the author has a military background and should surely know what constitutes a smart, cunning, savvy heroine – and it certainly isn’t acting the way this one did. I think you’ll enjoy this book if you can get past the heroine in the first 40% of the book. I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

  • This is another well written book in the Forbidden

    Description: Bound by revenge, a woman turned outlaw and a knight sworn to reclaim his birthright band together to vanquish an enemy of Scotland … After her family is slain and her home seized, Elspet McReynolds flees into the forests surrounding Tiran Castle, where she resorts to thievery to survive and save her sole remaining kin. There she finds an unexpected protector and ally in Sir Cailin MacHugh, rightful heir to the earldom of Dalkirk—a noble rumored to have perished at sea . . . Sir Cailin owes his life to the Brotherhood for saving him from a murderous plot. But what is the Knight Templar to do about the fearless, sword-wielding beauty who has enlisted his aid--and awakened his desire? In the face of devastating betrayals and traitorous enemies closing in, can Cailin and Elspet dare claim a love that makes no promises—for a future they may not live to see? This is another well written book in the Forbidden Series. I have been enjoying Diana Cosby books since her debut novel when I didn't know what an e-book was. I really enjoyed reading Elspet and Calin's story and look forward to the next book by this talented author. The characters are well drawn out and the story needs no explanation. It can easily be read as a standalone but I recommend reading the series in order. This is book #4 of this series. I gave this installment 4.4 of 5.0 stars for story line and characterization. I received a complimentary copy of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntaily.
