Alright, let's be honest here.This is a cute and fluffy historical romance that gives us the ridiculous fairytale romance of our dreams wherein the English lady is romanced by the charming Irish rogue and they fall madly in love despite their differences in station and the war going on between their two countries.It's Disney's Pocahontas. It's Romeo and Juliet. It's every story you've heard about star crossed lovers.The language was stilted and awkward, trying too hard to be Shakespeare. Burke,
Alexandra is a bright and impulsive young woman. Her uncle is her ward and he plans to put her in a convent while he goes to fight in Ireland for the Queen of England.

Just finished this, although it's the second time I've read it in the last year or so. I hadn't reviewed it, so wanted to be sure of my thoughts before posting. Have to say I enjoyed it as much the second time around, and would definitely read it again. I love historical romance, and I love happy endings, so for me it was perfect. The hero and heroine were very realistically portrayed, at least to me. The interaction with Queen Elizabeth I was very cool, made her seem like more than a history bo...
More gym reading. I got this one either cheap or free when I first got the Kindle. I'm trying to through some of those earlier ones and most of them are light for gym reading. This one, unlike most of the free books I've gotten from Kindle, was pretty good. I enjoyed the story and liked both of the main characters well enough, though I never loved them. I enjoyed seeing the interactions with Elizabeth too. Most of the historical romance fiction I've read, you don't get real figures from history
Irish rebellion, romance, Queen ElizabethAlex refused to be left in England in a monastery while her guardian uncle went to war in Ireland. Alexander is never known for doing what she is told to do. She meets up with Kevin Burke and maybe just maybe Queen Elizabeth can put the world back together again. Clever plot and will developed characterization, this is a must read for period romance fans. Adult readers due to sexual and violent content.
I read This author's book on WWII and gave it five stars. This was a alright read but did not hold my interest as the other book did. The heroine is escaping from her uncle who plans to place her in a convent while he goes off to fight. She is captured by an Irish rebel. This was a good read but not near so much as the first book of hers I read, "Clash by Night" which I absolutely loved.
This is one very entertaining, well-written little swashbuckler with great characters and enough action to satisfy even me. No dull spots just a lot of adventure and romance from beginning to end. Plan on reading it in one night because it is hard to put down.
Good historical romance novel. A quick read, but holds your attention realatively well. You end up rooting for the characters through every cliched, contrived twist. Not worth buying, but worth picking up from the library and reading on a rainy day. Ages 18+
Not sure how the title fit in with the plot line, although one character did mention that Kevin was nothing more than a highwayman. The story idea was very good although the plot and character development were not very strong
I loved this historical romance novel. It was the perfect read that you can get through fast but is a delight to read!
Parts of this story were fairly good but the heroine is one of those TSTL characters that you really want to shake some sense into but instead end up throwing your kindle across the room.
Great readI loved this book it has great characters that stood for what they felt was just I would recommend this book
The Highwayman by Doreen Owens MalekExcellent ebook and I would recommend this book to one and all I give this ebook five stars 5 stars
