LOVE,DESIRE,HUMOR,HISTORY,BEAUTY AND PASSION! Jan 9, 2009
Marsha Canham writes romance that is more than just romance. She uses historical facts well, although I wouldn't use this as a history lesson. You not only fall in love with the main characters but you fall in love with her well written secondary characters as well. This is a second book of a wonderful romantic trilogy. This was a fantastic fun continuation with all the characters I loved from the first book in the Marsha Canham Robin Hood series, THROUGH A DARK MIST is first then continues with THE LAST ARROW. The secondary characters are also all well written and have a depth and life of their own that you want to get to know them as well.
This is definitely much more that Romance, it has so much more to offer than a romp in the hay or a handsome hunk with rippling abs! Although it does have its handsome hero and beautiful heroine..... it is also so much more than just plain Historical Fiction because it has beautifully written sex scenes, more explicit than you normally would get in a regular HF.....not gratuitous sex, I don't feel anyway..it all rolled with the story line.
If you like and need more than the usual, if you want complex characters a story line with adventure and intrigue, a witty dialogue and good humor ALONG with the hot and steamy perfect love that we look for in our romances, then this is your author and read this as part of her Robin Hood series and you will only be disappointed when it ends!
Check out Marsha Canham's other books as well especially her HIGHLANDS series that begins with A PRIDE OF LIONS! You will be happy that you did!
