What I didn't realize at the time was that she was Saskia, and when I did realize (much much later), my head violently met my hand many many times of course. Okay guys so I was finishing up Chapter 3 when you fight the dragon and we were flying through the air and Geralt managed to bring her to the ground and she was impaled on the tree sticking out of the ground (GO ME, EPIC MONSTER SLAYER).

This was a wonderful historical romance. Their passion was something that could not be denied. I loved it so much.

This story was written MUCH better than the harlot! Great chemistry between characters. The sex scenes did not kill the flow of the story as the previous book did. I'm very excited for the next book. Unlike Jessica, Lennox is very accomplished with his magic and makes the fantasy aspect of this story more interesting.

Loved loved all the books bring on more please need more good stories and passion loved the way it flowed and just did not want to put it down

Thoroughly enjoyed the story line. It's a shame you had trouble with apostrophes and spacing which interfered with the flow of the story. Nice look into life in the eighteenth century in Scotland and witchcraft.

I don't read Harlequin, as a pre-teen I used to sneak and read them, well I wasn't really sneaking since I checked them out from the local library! but I soon got tired of the mush and moved to horror and mystery. I did not know that it was a Harlequin romance novel, or I wouldn't have chosen it. I also did not know that it was part of a series or I wouldn't have chosen it. I was almost disappointed when I saw the cover but I am happy with my choice.

The fact that it is historical (I love history) and there are witches (my horror element) is why I wanted to read it, but I really ended up enjoying the story more than I thought.

Lennox- who started out in my head as Antonio Banderas (until I realized I was in Scotland) is the master witch of his coven in Somerled. He along with his sisters were orphaned due to their mother being burned at the stake. They were then separated. On his quest to find his sisters, and to get back at his enemy Thamas, he meets Chloris.

Chloris is visiting her cousin Thamas when she overhears the servant girls talking about the witches and how they can help with certain ailments/issues. She goes to the witches where she meets Lennox and ask for his help in making her fertile. After a series of "rituals" and lovemaking..they find that they have fallen in love, and they want to be together.

Thamas and Gavin, Chloris' husband..stand in the way of that until! I don't want to give the story completely away, but this was a page turner. I thought it to be well written and the sex scenes are...passionate to say the least. I haven't read the others in the series, and this to me can be read alone, so I recommend it.

The Libertine was just an ok read for me. It is the 2nd book in a trilogy about 3 witches that are siblings. They were separated after the horrible death of their mother and forced to hide their supernatural ability while on the run from people that want to persecute them. They will each find love while trying to reunite after years of separation.

Chloris, married for several years is barren, and under a threat of being put aside by her husband unless she becomes pregnant. She seeks the help of a local Warlock to make her fertile. Lennox (love the name) our resident head witch in charge takes an interest in Chloris plight due to her connection to his hated enemy. Sounds familiar doesn't it? We know where this is going if you read the 1st book in the series. Let's use the h as a tool to get back at the hated enemy, and along the way the H will feel remorse and realize he loves the h and wants to protect her.

It felt as if I had read this story before, the only difference is the depth of characterization of the enemy and the revenge plot was more thought out in The Libertine than it was in The Harlot. The sex scenes were ok nothing spectatcular.....the animal magnetism between the H/h that captured me in the 1st book was missing in this one. Which is a shame because this author is great at writing hot scenes between the H/h that also reveals how much they care for each other.

Another turn off was Lennox. When Lennox is first introduced his devilish personality reminded me of Errol Flynn, but somewhere along the way his character stopped being interesting and turned into a selfish person willing to put his coven at the risk of capture so he could pursue Chloris. I have not mentioned Chloris because to me she was just a name on a page. She was the typical abused wife looking for some relief to an intolerable situation. The magic element of the story was done well. It was good to catch up with Jessie and Gregor. Although I did not enjoy this book as much as The Harlot, I'm still looking forward to reading The Jezebel.
