Book Description

DARE THE WILD WIND sweeps from Scotland and Bonnie Prince Charlie’s defeat on Culloden Moor to 18th Century London and the Caribbean. Passion flares when Drake Seton, Earl of Stratford, clashes with Brenna Dalmoral at Lochmarnoch. Shamed by the unexpected desire stirred by a dangerous enemy, Brenna resists, loyal to her childhood love, Cameron MacCavan. Drake crosses swords with Cam atop the castle tower, but Cam escapes to fight the British at Culloden Moor. Wounded, Cam is taken prisoner and transported to London to be hanged, and Brenna follows, determined to save him. In London, Drake rescues her from a mob, and they struggle against their mutual passion. They arrive at the gallows too late, and when her brother arranges her marriage to a sadistic neighbor, Drake offers for her instead. Desolate, Brenna agrees. But Cam has cheated the noose, and when he encounters Brenna at Drake’s estate in Cornwall, he abducts her aboard his privateer. At his plantation in the Caribbean, she discovers Cam has dark secrets, and his pirate hideaway comes under attack by an expedition led by Drake, determined to reclaim her.

About the Author

 Writing as Kaye Wilson Klem, Kaye Klem and Cathleen Carleton, Kaye graduated magna cum laude from a large Midwestern University and was a feature writer and reporter for THE HARTFORD TIMES in Hartford, Connecticut, after college.  Kaye began writing her first book in a closet under a bare light bulb to keep her toddler from lunching on her manuscript.  At that age they'll chew on anything. : )  That historical novel, TOUCH THE SUN was published by Doubleday & Company; and was named best book of the year by the Missouri Writers Guild. [Not yet online.] She has published six more novels: Three historical romances--two of which were lead titles for Fawcett Gold Medal--a historical novel, RIDE FROM THE NIGHT, set in the American Revolution under the pen name, Cathleen Carleton--and a Hollywood saga, MIRRORS, moving from the Silent Era to the Golden Age of film to contemporary film.  Her newest is DARE THE WILD WIND, sweeping from Scotland to 18th Century London to the Caribbean. Her books have been published in British, French, Italian and Scandinavian editions.  New books are in the works.   She has been listed in OUTSTANDING YOUNG WOMEN OF AMERICA, and has taught Creative Writing for a Community College District.  She lives in the suburbs with her Great Dane, Barney.  Kaye has traveled  to England, Scotland and Ireland; and to Greece, Hawaii, Tahiti, and Canada, plus most states in the US.  She enjoys music, rock and classical, art museums, theater and film, social events large and small, and good company with book lovers.

I really like this book by this great author. You will be overwhelmed with sensual delight and wonderful characters. You will love the Scottish Highlands, the people and how they survived. Drake Seton, Earl of Stratford, an English high ranking officer, is there to fight for his King. When he meets the desirable Brenna Dalmoral at Lochmarnoch, he desires her. But Brenna only has eyes for her beloved Cameron MacCavan who is a rebel against the King's men. But when the highlanders are defeated at Culloden Moor, he is captured and will be hanged by the British. Brenna is heartbroken over this and asks Lord Stratford to help her find Cam before it's too late. But there is a price to pay and things heat up when Brenna finds herself in love with the enemy. Please read this beautiful tale of love and forgiveness in the background of war.

There's often a definite separation between what people call Historical Romance and what they call Historical Fiction. "Historical Romance" as a genre is usually painted all with the same brush, and the expectation is for illicit love affairs, violations of salon etiquette, lords and ladies ripping off corsets and roaring around on horseback so randy couples can frolic in heather-filled green pastures. Historical Fiction is often portrayed as serious, passionless, and dull. Or at least void of sex.

This book is a perfect example of what happens when you mix two excellent examples of both. I loved "Dare the Wild Wind." The research was beautifully done, digging deep into the tough dirt, and the writing gave dimension to every character, which is a tough skill to master. I know I may be the oddball here, but I tend to snap books shut when I see too many episodes of "thrusting manhood" or "bulging" whatever. When I ran across a few in this book, I let them go, reminding myself the book is called a "romance" and thus must contain scenes like this. But they were just enough to whet my appetite, not leave me nauseous. I highly recommend this book to all Historical Romance readers.

Format:Kindle Edition
Once again, Kaye Wilson Klem weaves a magical tapestry of history and emotion. She creates a vivid heroine in Scotswoman Brenna Dalmoral, who's willing to risk her life for the man she loves--or thinks she loves. But Cam, whom she's adored from childhood, has a dark side she's never glimpsed. And her path seems fated to cross that of Englishman Drake Seton, her apparent enemy. As events build and twist in unexpected ways, Brenna is due for an awakening, while the reader will be drawn ever deeper into her blazing story. Spellbinding!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I haven't read a Scottish historical in quite some time and I found it refreshing, when most of the Englishmen are considered the "bad guy", that in Dare The Wild Wind the hero is the Englishman. The relationship between Brenna and Drake was believable and though I had to admit that in the very beginning I was rooting for Cam, I hoped Drake would be the hero of the story. The book was beautifully written, the details of each location vivid. Toward the end I was afraid that Drake and Brenna wouldn't have their happy ending, though. I am curious-and this in NO way affected how much I enjoyed the book-why the hero on the cover has black hair when Drake was blonde. Very minor detail. I look forward to reading more stories by this author.

More About the Author

Kaye Wilson Klem: I graduated magna cum laude with a degree in journalism from a large Midwestern university, where I was also managing editor of the college newspaper. I worked as a newspaper reporter and feature writer for a New England daily newspaper, THE HARTFORD TIMES -- which some time after I left folded over a circulation figure dispute when it was sold. That time as a reporter was one of the most exciting of my life, and a treasured memory. With a small child to raise, I started my first novel, TOUCH THE SUN, which was published by Doubleday & Company. Then I was encouraged to write popular historical romance novels by Fawcett Gold Medal, where two were lead titles: RECKLESS FIRES and EAST OF JAMAICA. Fawcett also published DEFIANT DESIRE, which was my first with Fawcett, and went into a second printing. I wrote a Hollywood saga, MIRRORS, published by New American Library; and a more traditional historical novel, RIDE FROM THE NIGHT, published by Carlyle Books--all now on Amazon. A new historical romance, DARE THE WILD WIND, set in Scotland and the Caribbean, will soon be up on Amazon, and three other new novels are on the horizon.
I enjoy exotic travel, music from rock to classical, films, theatre, and--of course!--books are my constant companions. Happy reading to everyone!
