Ronan Fitzgerald had been a traveling minstrel, with a gift for healing and promised Fergus that he would go to Lord Darnley and do what was asked of him. His introduction to Lady Maude was less than auspicious as with her cutting tongue she did her best to drive him away. Ronan saw beyond the rapier sharp tongue and having an innate sense that made him such a good healer, he saw beneath the bravado and recognized her terror by listening, really listening to the music he heard her play. As he came to care deeply for her, and with the clans ready to annihilate one another at the least provocation, Ronan would have to reach her before her terror would drive her completely over the edge and her father calling an all-out war against the Kirallen's.
THE LINNET is a powerful story of bitter rage and survival. Maude who was depicted in the previous novels (BORDER BRIDE and LAIRD OF THE MIST) as cold and self-centered, in this last of the trilogy is fully exposed and dissected.Read more ›
I saw this book, "The Linnet" in the store and was hooked by the page I saw that has the hero starting out in a cave! The author writes convincingly and tackles a hard-on-the-heroine subject matter not usually found in romance novels. This is a story guided by truths and truths are sometimes hard to take but this author does it well and with grace. By that I mean that she does not shy away from her painful subject matter and instills it with the romance of finding a way back even after hard events in life. The hero and heroine are both people that you want to make it. I loved how the author wove such depth and complexity of her characters in with the historical setting of border feuding, between Scotland and English land owners, that would have allowed such complexity.
I'm sorry for not giving more details of the story line. Besides knowing that other reviewers will do that if that's what you want-- I just don't want to give too much away-- as it's really an experience to read the story for itself and let it unfold as it goes along.Read more ›
Lady Maude Darnley is known for her sharp temper and often, harsh treatment of others. What no one, save her father and an old healer know, is that she lived through a terrifying act of brutality seven years previous... one, that were people to find out about, she'd be scorned by all. She had once been a happy young lady who went out of her way to extend kindness to others. That traumatic event changed her in such a way that she was an entirely different person.
Ronan Fitzgerald is a roaming minstrel and healer who loves his lifestyle. He'd never be happy confined to one place all his life. When he made a promise to his dying mentor, he never realized how much that would change his life. When he headed to Aylsford Keep, all he had been told was to serve Lord Darnley and help Maude, with no idea of what that would entail.
Ronan discovered, upon arrival at Aylsford, that he may be getting more then he bargained for. He knew nothing of what he would be doing or how to help. Upon meeting Maude, he knew something was different about this woman, and that underneath her harsh demeanor, she held some dreadful secret. He did what he could to help her, until she felt able to trust him with her secret horror. Now, they can begin the real work of her healing, out of which grows a tender love that turns to a fiery passion neither can deny. As the feud grows strong once again, can their love be enough to overcome treacheries of the past?
Once again, Ms. English has proven her skill at weaving a complex story full of passion and adventure, with characters the reader will love.Read more ›
