Mrs.Henke does a wonderful job, she has masterfully created two romance stories in one! It does switch from one couple to another, but not in a way that cofuses or irritates! She has created wonderfully rich and in-depth characters that you will remmember long after you turn the last page!!

If you read a lot as I do, you are always looking for a different approach. Henke does a great job here setting this story during the american revolution with 2 heros and 2 heroines and connecting it all masterfully. The Blackthorne cousins are Quinton and Devon. Quinton is the heir of a father who despises him, abuses him and taunts him. The father is loyal to the king and arranges a marriage for Quinton.(Quinton of course spies for the rebels partly to defy his father). Quinton has been taught to distrust women and this "issue" rules his life so he takes a bride reluctantly, believing that madelyn will be a seen and nor heard wife. Madelyn is a throw away child herself and desparately wants a home, family and love and turns out to be a bit too spunky.....and honest..for quinton. (He doesn't treat her very well as he fights his attraction to her.) And she can hold her own with her dictatorial father in law.........Devon is like a brother to Quint but he is a half breed from his fathers second and unaccepted marriage with a muskogee woman. (There is the pre reqisite older brother and heir.) Devon was raised largely with his mothers relatives. Interesting how the line of succession in this tribe goes via the mother's side instead of the father. Devon is a charmer and a delight. He fights with the English because he feels his indian family will fare better under english rule. He is devastated when he learns that his cousin Quint is a traitor. Devon falls in love with a spoiled, noble brat who was sent to the colonies as punishement......her mother doesn't like her either!!! (There weren't any outstanding parents in this book!) Devon, of course, is totally persona non grata in her family. The stories of Quint and Madelyn and Devon and Lady Barabara intertwine throughtout the book.Read more ›

Both Quint and Devon are, in their own ways, "bad boys" who give their women a lot of guff. You know, you could intellectualize this tale and compare Madelyne and Barbara to the ragged colonial troops in the book who battle and finally defeat the arrogant British. But hey, save the intellectual stuff for the professors. This is a story crafted to entertain and satisfy readers. And it does both.

First in Henke's Blackthorne trilogy (LOVE A REBEL, LOVE A ROGUE, WICKED ANGEL and WANTON ANGEL) this one is set during the years 1780-1782 in the Georgia Colony at the time of the Revolutionary War and tells of two heroes, one a patriot and one a loyalist. As always, Henke serves up a tale rich in history with a winding plot that will hold you captive ` till the end.

Quintin Blackthorne despised his father and the secret he was forced as a child to keep but he knew he would need an heir and for that he had to marry. He cared little about who the woman might be as long as she wasn't beautiful so that other men might want her for he mistrusted all women. Madelyne Deveaux, the daughter of his father's friend, seemed plain and biddable enough, though when he first saw her she was covered with dirt. When she travels to Blackthorne Hill in Savannah as his betrothed, he is furious at the beauty revealed and her feisty manner. Worse, she is a loyalist and he a secret revolutionary. He is cold and arrogant to her, often embarrassing her in front of others. Still, Madelyne wants to earn his affection.

Quintin's cousin, Devon Blackthorne, is part Indian, part white and all charm. He lives with his mother's people, the Muskogee, and is an agent for the Crown, working with the soldiers coordinating the Indian allies. He knows nothing of his cousin's support for the rebels. Unlike Quintin, Devon feels no pressure to take a wife and has no intention of doing so. But then he rescues the shipwrecked and haughty Lady Barbara Caruthers who has been banished to the Colonies and her brother from London by her mother for her willful and wasteful ways--and because the beautiful blonde was competition. Despite their disparate worlds, Devon and Barbara soon fall in love.

In this book, the romance reader gets a double helping of good stuff, two sets of lovers. Quint Blackthorne and Madelyne are a perfect match in an ironic way. Both possess a strong sense of duty -- only his is to America and hers is to England. In that sense, the conflict between the lovers reflects the conflict between the nations. Devon Blackthorne and Lady Barbara are also a perfect match. He's a half-breed, hell-raising rogue (love it!) and she is noblewoman banished by her family because she is too rowdy for polite London society. Their personal conflict also reflects another of the struggles portrayed in Henke's tale, that between the Muskogee Indians and the white society that is destroying their way of life. All in all, this book gives you twice the romantic turmoil you would usually expect in an historical romance. But Shirl Henke also gives you some authentic and fascinating glimpses into how life really was lived back then, and it all ties together very, very nicely.
