We joyfully request your attendance at the wedding of Miss Angelica Cynster ... but not until she and her hero lay to rest an ancient grudge in the Scottish Highlands!
Headstrong Angelica Cynster is certain she'll recognize her fated husband at first sight. And when her eyes meet those of a mysterious nobleman, she knows beyond a doubt that he's the one. But her heart is soon pounding for an entirely different reason—when her hero abducts her!
The eighth Earl of Glencrae has no choice but to kidnap Angelica, the one Cynster sister with whom he hadn't wanted to tangle. But to save his castle and his clan, he must persuade her to assist him—and he's prepared to offer marriage to seal the deal!

Spoiler alert - it is difficult to describe these books without "spoilers" which give away plot detail. I have avoided any serious spoilers for "The capture of the Earl of Glencrae" in this review - anyone who has read the first two books and the back of this one will be aware of most of the details given. However, it is not possible to explain say anything much about the setting of this final book in the trilogy without giving away, at least by inference, significant spoilers for the previous volumes and particularly the second book. Indeed, the very existence of this third book is something of a spoiler for the second one!
So if you have not yet read the first two novels in this trilogy I would advise you to stop reading here and follow the links above to the first two books.Read more ›
I have to say, I made a wise decision, at least in skipping the second book of this trilogy. I don't think I would have been able to stay awake if I'd had to read any more of the silly plotting behind the kidnapping of the three immeasurably "independent," "intelligent," and quite ridiculously-susceptible-to-being-kidnapped Cynster girls.
The problem with this third book is that the first three chapters are almost entirely expository. The Earl of Glencrae, in a very long, very tedious, very drawn-out manner, explains his motives to an all too willing Angelica Cynster. And worse, the girl who has just been kidnapped immediately starts to plot ways to excuse Glencrae for the kidnapping because he's her "hero" and he "needs" her.
I was ready to read a tale of a villain redeemed, but after just three chapters, I came to the not-at-all-difficult decision to put this book aside and spend my time pursuing other endeavors. While I always admire Stephanie Laurens' writing ability, I think I've come to the point where I'm not willing to excuse a ridiculous, poorly contrived plot that rehashes the Cynster romances of the past just on the off chance that she might be able to save it in the end. I might give the older tales a try, but her recent books have just become too annoying for me to bear.
Although we finally get filled in on the deal with the goblet, it was trite and I felt that it wasn't all that plausible. But hey at least we knew why this was happening! The villain in the story is never really fleshed out. At first you think its one person who must be a little crazy and then all of a sudden you find out something else. Had we learned more about the real villian and the past, this could have been a great story.
The parts with the Original Cynsters are great but few and far between. I miss them so!!
This had the potential to be a GREAT story but sadly, it was just one more mediocre novel but one of my formerly favorite authors. I used to buy Stephanie's books without ever reading the back cover or looking at reviews. I strongly doubt I will ever read another Stephanie Laurens book without letting some time pass and reading reviews again. Sad face =(.
