The history is amazing.
Tom Peaslee
I would love to see what has happened to Skye's descendants all the way up to the present and maybe the future even.
Carrie Meier
All the Skye series have been a great read so far and I will be starting the last one soon.

Valentina is my favorite heroine in the O'Malley series and more like Skye than Skye's offspring is. When Valentina goes to court to serve Elizabeth I, I was heartbroken. Mrs. Small's exceptional writing and incredible detail showed me how the lively days of courtlife in Elizabeth's youth had dramatically changed and become a somber place as Elizabeth approached her last days. When a family secret is revealed, Valentina shows us her adventurous spirit and heads East! Her adventures are incredible! I appreciated how Mrs. Small touched on "The Kadin" through the duchy of San Lorenzo and reintroducing us to Esther Kira (who met Valentina's mother in "A Love for All Time"). Also, the appearance of Cica Pasha tied into "Love Wild and Fair." Wonderful! (A note to Mrs. Small: Since you have touched on Esther Kira so often, how about a book dedicated to her entire life. Just a thought.) I wept at least 3 times and was filled with anger, frustration, joy, fear, and triumph as Mrs. Small weaved her magic spell of words and phrases and pulled me into her story. If you haven't read the O'Malley series, you might get a little confused. You should at least read "A Love for All Time" which is the tale of Aidan, Valentina's mother, and is the basis of much of this book's plot.

I truly enjoyed Valentina and thought her character better than Velvet and Jasmine. I loved how this book touched on so many other stories. The Mediteranean island where Janet Leslie was taken (see "The Kadin") and the return of Cica Pasha. (see "Love Wild and Fair"). Of course, I loved seeing Esther Kira again. Valentina is stronger than Aidan, but very much her mother's daughter. I can't say enough good things about this book. There is romance, adventure, and on-the-edge-of-your-seat-suspense.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The queen's gnarled fingers pinched the girl's baby-smooth cheeks. "Do not deceive yourself, Valentina," the wise and majestic old woman croaked. "Journey to the East if you will, but do not expect to remain cool and untouched forever. You are an O'Malley, like your cursed grandmother. Your will is strong, but your nature is hot and passionate."

Valentina St. Michaels determined to discover the secret of her birth. Though raised an Elizabethan noble, her mother was once a harem slave to a great sultan of India. Val has no wish to repeat her mother's sensual experiences, but when her trading fleet is wrecked in a storm fate tosses her from one devastatingly handsome man to another. Forced to yield to her own sensual nature in order to survive, Val soon discovers that wise old Queen Bess knew the truth about her passionate nature. But will Val become passion's master or a slave like her mother? Will she ever reclaim her royal identity? Will she discover love as well as pleasure?

9 of 12 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on September 14, 1999
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Of all the O' Malley heroines (including Skye herself), Valentina St. Michaels Barrows is by far my favorite. Small portrays her as GENUINELY clever, kind-hearted, brave and witty; we're told she's beautiful, but that somehow doesn't seem important in light of her warm personality.
Why this wonderful heroine had to be dropped into a muddle of a book is a mystery. Suddenly Valentina is made to doubt her paternity and faster than you can swear "God's foot!" she's off to "the East" to discover the truth (even though candidates two and three are presumed dead). Worse, she's burdened with two clods for suitors--Tom Ashburne and Padraic Burke who is Valentina's own cousin (smacks of incest, no?). Once in "the East" Valentina falls into all kinds of melodramatic, sadistic sexual traps which I did not find erotic so much as disturbing and a little disgusting. Methnks Small needs to lay off the harem intrigue--it really does get dull. Finally, this book includes threads from Love Wild and Fair and the Kadin, in addition to previous O'Malley novels. This makes for more of a curtain call than a book.
In closing, I did find Valentina's special relationship with Elizabeth I to be tender and touching. The two characters seem to bring out the excellence in each other. Why not dump the questionable romance and craft a novel between England's great ruler and her favorite servant?

I love this book which I believe is Book #5 in the O'Malley series. Valentina is a great heroine: very courageous and intelligent. Her quest to discover herself takes her to exciting and dangerous places. I love how Beatrice Small tied in part of this story with Cat Leslie's of "Love Wild and Fair." One of my all-time favorites in the O'Malley Series.

There is something about a Bertrice Small book that lends itself to just being glad that you are reading yet another one. She develops her characters well and her story too. You never feel that,"I've read this before,different names,same story"when you come to the end. And that's why I like her books. It is always a good read and I meet three dementional people each time within a good story plot. Plus, I love this period of history and she takes the time to write within that period. She never writes just another romance.She writes a good book that happens to have romance in it and that's the big difference for me as an avid reader of all kinds of books.
