The books can be read as standalone novels and a few of the characters from the 1st make appearances in this one.
I liked the heroine Catherine from the beginning. Even though she lets others run her life and take advantage of her, she never feels spineless. She has grace and a huge heart, which really shows in her friendship with her Maid. That friendship was precious to watch blossom. She never looked down on Gael based on her social standing. Gael and her Gavin both are such great secondary characters in this novel, they are more like part of an ensemble cast.
Let me not forget another character I loved, Father Finlay :).
The Hero Kyle is a great fit for Catherine. Both are very duty bound and so it creates some heartache and separation along the way. Wonderful romance between them that grows more as time goes on. He makes quite the dashing Hero :)
I don't want to give to much away so I'll just say this book has Kings, Queens, treason, love, Gypsies and a lot more. Its a longer book at over 10000 Kindle locations and it still went by fairly quickly.
Only one small issue for me was that I think I would have liked a epilogue of sorts. Maybe that is just me being greedy for not wanting to leave all the people I got to know so well :)
I am not very good at expressing myself in reviews but I really enjoyed this book with its historical details and great romances. If I could give half stars I think this would be a 4 1/2 stars for me.
Didn't like it much. Two stars only for the historical detail of Richard III and his family.
The story takes place during the reign of Richard III - the end of the War of the Roses. Unlike some recent popular, traditionally published, books, this book is well researched and the facts (with the exception of one incident that the author explains) are not ignored or changed for the convenience of the story. I enjoyed this book and hope to read more stories by Margaret Lake
Catherine and the Captain is a very engaging piece of historical fiction covering the short, violent reign of Richard III during the War of the Roses. The Battle of Bosworth Field, as recounted (and footnoted) by Ms Lake, was the decisive battle that ended the war, the House of York, the Plantagenet dynasty and the Middle Ages in England. I may have skipped a few paragraphs about fabrics and colors but I still enjoyed the book enormously. This is a must read for any fans of romantic, historical fiction and a good read for anyone else that likes a well told story.
