I am an avid Coulter fan, but this book seems to have been written by someone else. This book wasn't very good and I was very surprised.

I am a long time Coulter fan - but half way through this book, I am having trouble continuing. I am so annoyed! I feel like Catherine changed her mind half way through about who would end up together - and instead of going back to rewrite the first half, assumed the readers wouldn't notice!!!

I am an avid Coulter fan..I have read all her books some many times over. I was looking for much more than a book about people talking in quips to each other I was completely confused most of the book and there was no love making not even alittle heavy petting. Coulter seems to have changed her whole writing style and it wasn't for the better, go back and read your older books Catherine they were great!

I've never read a Catherine Coulter novel and that seems to be the key to enjoyment of this book. Julian Monroe is the "Prince" of Ravenscar - really he's the second son of the Duke, but the true heir of his father's heart. Born to the Duke's much younger second wife, Julian grows into a handsome, kind man, the lord of Ravenscar whose hobby just happens to be smuggling goods. He has returned to England after a 3 year absence caused by grief over the mysterious death of his wife, Lilly. His former brother-in-law suspects Julian of that murder and only with the help of his half-nephew, Devlin - the rumored vampire, and two beautiful women will he be able to finally fulfill his destiny at Ravenscar and uncover the truth.

I know that Coulter's normal genre is historical romance, and I got the idea from this book that she was skewering her own format. She seems to be having fun, turning things on their head, making light of the formalized rituals and mistaken identities that litter these kinds of books. She imbibed her female characters with a strength and candor I found refreshing, her men were quirky and filled with humor. Devlin, the nephew, pretends to be a vampire and I saw this as a nod to the prevalence of the paranormal in modern romance novels. Anymore if the book doesn't have a vampire or a werewolf it won't sell, so this was a sly wink at that genre. Coulter also challenged the helpless female waiting to be rescued role women often play in romance books. Both Sophie Wilkie and her aunt Roxanne Radcliff, are fun characters who defy the damsel in distress mode, each getting herself out of bad situations using cunning and brains.

I was really looking forward to this book since the author always seemed pretty reliable if you wanted a basic good read. I was also in the mood for a gothicky kind of romance. I only got about half way through the book - it seemed like it was written by a Georgette Heyer wanna be that failed miserably. The plot line was choppy and the characters were all so cookie-cutter similar that they were almost impossible to separate. I hate giving a uniformly bad review, but I didn't find anything redeeming in this book. I agree with another reviewer: this may be the last book by this author that I read.

I am a huge fan of Catherine Coulters, however this book was a disapointment. Too many complicated relatives, I found myself having to remember who was related to whom and how. I did not feel the usual attraction to her characters. The men lacked the typical male strength. I found toward the end, I no longer cared about the answer to the mystery message from the dead father, grandfather, step-brother. I typically do not do this, but I was skipping over many pages to get to the end. I was disapointed.

I have read all of Catherin Coulter's books and was anticipating something new; however, I was really disappointed the wait was for nothing. I agree that this book was written by someone else as it's not Catherin's writing style. The book was extremely confusing and forced. There was no chemistry between the characters and she tried to force a lot of her characters from other story lines into this book making it hard to follow. If you really must read this book I'd try to barrow it from the Kindle library as it's definitely not worth the $10.99 price tag.

I have to agree with most of the other reviewers - this book just isn't up to the standard we expect from Catherine Coulter. The characters are cardboard, the dialog is flat, the vampire thing is inane, and the plot certainly shouldn't take over 400 pages to resolve itself. Calling this "a Sherbrooke Novel" is totally misleading, because Sherbrookes don't play any meaningful role at all - they make a token appearance at the beginning and the end, just so this tag line can be slapped on the cover and suck in readers who might have enjoyed previous novels in that series.

Frankly, this reads like a first draft, not a final product. I knew this was going to be a slog of a read when, on page 23, a gander is misidentified as female. Huh? Similar mistakes abound throughout the book - there is a mention of Devlin's descendant, when clearly ancestor is meant; on one line, Roxanne's maid is named Tansy, but two lines later her name mysteriously changes to Emma. One of the chapters is even started with a quote by Woody Allen, for Pete's sake! Another chapter starts with a quote by Richard Armour, but his name is misspelled. One other chapter starts with a quote, then none of the others do - like it got to be too much work to come up with witty quotes, which have nothing to do with the chapter anyway, and they didn't bother to go back and take out the few that had been included to begin with. I could go on, but I won't. A good editor would have caught things like this. It's annoying and takes away what little pleasure there might have been in reading this.

Save your groats and don't bother to buy this book. Someone deserves a mighty clout for letting this one get published in this state.
