The Black Knave Reviews
By accident I picked-up this novel, and I ended up being so glad that I did. I have now added Ms. Potter to my list of favorite authors.Ms. Potter weaves an intricate tale showing the difficulty of upholding love, honor, and courage during a time of war, she displays the effects of trying times in a post-war era, and of unexpected love. She shows that love, honor and courage come in all different shapes and sizes and that some of the worlds most beautiful people and things are concealed in the least likely wrappers.Truly a wonderful tale that will tug at the heart strings.
I've learned to grit my teeth and deal with "och aye lassie I dinna ken ye whatever" in dialogue but this loses a star for putting it in the narrative, too. Otherwise the story and characters were fine, if low on the angst for my tastes.
A lovely Scottish romantic adventure full of charming likeable characters! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ of 5
I loved the fact that the central character was a Scottish Scarlet Pimpernel. He rescued Jacobites from the English just as Baroness Orczy's Scarlet Pimpernel rescued French aristocrats from the Jacobins.
Wonderful hero and heroine. Intrigue, romance, everything you want in a (hmmm "an"?) historical romance.
A good fun and predictable romance. A nice light read.
a great fun book. It is nice to pick up a book and just escape into it. Rory was a great character that followed his conscience.
