Editorial Reviews

Review

"[California Caress was] my first Rebecca Sinclair novel but definitely NOT my last. Wowee was this ever a good read! Ms. Sinclair takes her readers on a ride of laughs, heartache, betrayal, and intense passion. Her characters are finely chiseled and compliment her captivating story line."
     ~Romancing the Book


__________


"I loved the story line and thought it was very well thought out. The story kept true to its time period and that is a big bonus in my eyes. There was a lot of emotion and heart in the story. Also it was very sensual and hot."
     ~Romance Book Craze


__________


"The plot [of Perfect Strangers] is fast paced, emotional, with witty authentic dialogue, valor, romance, a twist or two, sweet sensuality and passion. I love the way this author made the heroine, Gabrielle, a woman with both inner and outer beauty, although, some thought she was not a beauty. And the way the hero, Connor, loved Gabrielle for both her inner and outer beauty, to him she was beautiful and he loved her strength. Perfect Strangers is a must for anyone who enjoys Scottish adventure, historical romance, and love!

"I really enjoyed watching their relationship develop and felt it was very believable. It starts off as lusty and quickly moves towards something much deeper filled with passion and emotions. Through the twists and turns of this great story, love over comes all. I will definitely be reading more from Rebecca Sinclair."

Ok - I have to admit, the picture perfect specimen on the cover captured my attention before anything. Did you look?! Well, go back and LOOK!

I also have a predisposed fascination with Scotland as my ancestors hail from the great country of Scotland. I love the brogue. I love the bagpipes. I love the kilts. I would someday like to visit Scotland, and I would like one of those men (from the cover).

Perfect Strangers captured the love between Gabrielle Carleton and Connor Douglas magnificently. What sets this book apart from previous books I've read is that the author did not make Gabrielle a picture perfect woman. Gabby is a complex young woman who as part of Queen Elizabeth's court, was ridiculed, and judged based on her lack of outer beauty. The "Black Douglas'" piercing gray eyes saw passed the outer shell to the beautiful woman beneath (and mine will too).

The author not only captured the essence of Gabby but the complex humanity
of the highland clans and their way of life in 16th century Scotland and England.

Perfect Strangers is a story of a young woman, sent by her queen, to marry in hopes of ending the border feuds. Her betrothed's twin brother, the notorious Black Douglas, whom ballads of his fierceness have been written and sung, kidnaps her.

Soon after arriving at his castle, a battle breaks out and Connor's old aunt is kidnapped. In her goodness and innocence, Gabrielle sets off to rescue her. Before the night has time to set, Connor comes upon her camp, and after a night of giving in to the passion that has been threatening to consume them, Gabby and Connor, are captured by a neighboring clan.

Through the twists and turns of a great story, love trumps all. I will definitely be reading more from Rebecca Sinclair.

I picked up this book at one of my local library's book sales.
It was a fantastic read!This book is set in 16th century England and Scotland, where it mainly takes place on the borders.Gabrielle Carelton is a "sturdy" woman who is full of self doubts and worries. She is abruptly kidnapped on her way to meet her betrothed, Collin Douglas: by none other than the Black Douglas, a man reputted to be fierce and merciless, not to mention Collin's twin brother Connor. This is a story aout a man and a woman who begin as strangers and enemies, to be joined into a love to survive all of time. Its full of twists and turns, action, danger, and romance. It had the right amount of everything. I truly enjoyed reading it and I'm sure to read it several more times in the years to come.

I loved this book. What made it so special was the rich and complex relationship between Connor Douglas and Gabrielle Carleton.
This is one of the few romances that have something more then the perfect twosome. This vital and yet wounded woman came through a lifetime of pain for being less then perfection. Her whole life had been judged by others because she was not size nine. This handsome reiver, saw beneath the obvious flaw to what she was.
Her battle to be accepted by others and her need to be just who she was a loving, passionate woman and a fit mate for anyone.
The passion between these two could sizzle to a crisp, anyone standing near.
Nothing shallow about this book.

RRAH's THOUGHTS AND PONDERINGS:

All I have to say is, WOW! This book blurb doesn't do this book justice. It seems that the author has published this story in 1996, and did some `ironing' of it and re-published it last year. I've never had the pleasure to read this author before, but that will certainly change right now.

This was such a warm and touching story. It's so much more than just romance. It's a painting of a time long gone, yet brought to life in such vivid detail. I was made to want to belong to Elizabeth's court only because I wanted to shelter our heroine from the Queen, who only knew how to humiliate her.

Oh, and then she meets the hero, and what a hero he turns out to be! He is one alpha male all the way, and the only man that would make sure she would become a strong woman, and his equal.

This is very, very well written and paced to perfection, character driven, and filled with humor and romance in equal measures.

I highly recommend it.

Worth the money. A very light read though. I had issues with the way everyone treated Gabrielle. They all snickered about her plain looks and her overweight body. The black douglas was no exception . I found many of the characters to be rude, uncaring and unlikable. The fact that he later changes his mind still didn't do much to endear him to me. The story lacked a certain depth to the characters but for the price it was ok.

This was a good story. Conner and Gabrielle were wonderful and meant for each other. Queen Elizabeth sends Gabrielle to marry Colin, Conner's twin brother, on the way she is kidnapped by Conner's men. This marriage is to help alleviate some of the animosity between Scotland and England. Before the wedding takes place the queen dies. The wedding does not take place before the end of the story. For me a lot of things are left undone when this story ends. But the ending is left up to the author. If the story had been tied up a little better I would have given this four stars.
