    1. What? A trashy romance novel, on my list? I don't know what you're talking about. I don't even know how that got there.*****Okay, now I've (mostly) read it.*****The writing is so bad it's distracting. The plot is silly and boring. The characters are forced. The story movement is cheap and choppy (the main rhetorical device used for breaking up dialogue is one of the characters pouring themselves a tankard of cider. someone was pouring themselves a tankard of cider on every 3rd page). And the ho [...]

    2. Ruari is a very cocky, confident man, “ye could don a nun’s garb and fair glow with the light of piety and innocence as ye intone poetic, heartrending words of denial, but it wouldnae change the fact that your passion matches mine.” Ruari is not a bashful man, "I want you in my bed.”He briefly grinned. “Or me in yours. Or most anywhere else.” Ruari doesn't like interruptions, "a loud rapping sounded at the door. “Go away,” he bellowed then grinned when Sorcha giggled." I liked th [...]

    3. I struggled with the logic on this one, but enjoyed it anyway. Sorcha Hay is scouring a battlefield with her cousin Margaret, looking for her idiot brother Dougal among the dead and dying. Instead of finding Dougal, they find two other Scots, Ruari and Beetham Kerr, men from a much more wealthy clan. Ruari is badly wounded, near death from the look of it. Beetham took a knock on the head; he'll live, but he's in no shape to fend off the scavengers who cull goods from the bodies of the dead—and [...]

    4. My Lady CaptorFor this period of time it was very refreshing to have the heroine be so strong and conduct the negotiations in the ransom for getting her brother back from the enemy. This is an instance where turn about is fair play. Sorcha is bright and very intelligent in how she acquires the funds to "buy" back her rather irresponsible brother. Ruari, her prisoner, doesn't like how Sorcha out foxes him. She is very adept at playing the games in a man's world. However, he is captivated by her i [...]

    5. Lady Sorcha is searching for her brother on the battlefield when she comes across wounded Sir Ruari. Rescuing him, she soon finds out her brother is being held ransom by the English. In a split-second decision she decides to take Sir Ruari captive to ransom him back to his kin to raise the money needed to save her brother. Ruari is quite displeased at his captivity and the fact that he was captured by a woman, and vows revenge.I've read other "woman taking man captive" stories, and this one felt [...]

    6. I don't know why I keep torturing myself. I guess I keep hoping that Ms. Howell will write stories about ladies who actually honor and act like high born ladies of that era. I love her writing, she is a great storyteller (probably why, even though I swear I'm through at the end of many of her books, I keep trying again) but a woman who claims honor and respect then IMMEDIATELY plays a whore (the exact words of "Lady Captors" heroine) within a few days of meeting a man and continues even though t [...]

    7. I love the way Hannah Howell writes!! Sorcha looks for her brother on the battlefield and finds a knight alive with his cousin. She then finds out from them that the English have taken her brother Dougal!! Sorcha devises a plan to take the 2 wounded back to her home and hold them for ransom to get the money needed to get her brother back!! The book is great and quite a few times in the book you just want to hit Sir Ruari over the head!!!

    8. A very nice Howell story. This is one of her re-releases from her past as "Anna Jennett," but it was "Hannah Howell" through and through. A very entertaining story, and I particularly liked the ghosts as part of the plot. That was a twist that was a relief from her staple of the hero or heroine having "the sight." Seeing ghosts was a nice change.Well worth the time if you're a fan of Hannah Howell.

    9. i loved loved loved this book. I liked how Sorcha wasn't afraid of going after what she wanted. And how Ruari though she was crazy but wanted her anyway. These two were so fun to read about with the twist and turns of who kidnapped who, and what everyone was feeling.

    10. A nice fun medieval read, reminiscent of Karyn Monk, with a very light paranormal theme. (Sorcha sees and talks to ghosts). Light read, strong characters, easy plotazon/review/RQR1VIZ6

    11. OK about sums the book up for me. It was a palate cleanser for me between other books and I wanted a little light entertainment. It was that but nothing more. A quick read but faintly dissatisfying - didn't really do anything or go anywhere.

    12. I love this storyI am a huge fan of Hannah Howell and have not yet come across one of her books that I have found lacking. I read her books quite often and re-read then when I have the need for the familiar. One of my favourite authors

    13. Interesting twist in that she is a warrior and her clan has abducted him to get money (ransom) as they are dying. He learns how bad off her clan is and who caused the decline. Good plot twist and interesting characters.
