Présentation de l'éditeur

In 1854, high in the Pyrenees in the tiny country of Andorra, a band of mercenaries lead by highlander Courtland McCarrick wages war under ruthless general Reynaldo Pascal. Though Court is a cold-hearted merc, who was cursed years ago to "walk with death or walk alone," even he balks when he learns how vicious Pascal's campaign against the people of this region really is. He removes his men from the fray, demanding only to be compensated for the time they'd spent under the General's leadership, but the man refuses. This Scottish leader will exact his revenge-by kidnapping the general's exquisite Castilian fiancé and forcing her back to his highland home.
Annalía Tristán Llorente, staid, beautiful, a noblewoman to her toes, despises the fierce, barbaric highlander. Because of his cadre's skills, her own brother's resistance was crushed and he was imprisoned-only to be freed once Annalía weds the general. Distrusting Court's seemingly mercurial loyalties, she tells him nothing of her brother's imprisonment, allowing Court to think Anna is more mercenary than he, since she longs to return to the rich general to wed. With every mile further from her home, she plots to escape, hating the highlander more with each thwarted attempt, outrage bubbling in her every time he captures her in his powerful arms. Annalía's fury only increases when she finds herself attracted to the dark, commanding warrior. But if she succumbs and loses her innocence, she signs her brother's death warrant, as well as her own.
From the moment Court sees that Anna's prim façade masks fiery, passionate lass beneath, his heart's ensnared. He realizes he will never let her go, and for the first time he dares to defy the curse that has shadowed his life. Until it comes true when the general vows he'll hunt the two, never stopping until he's destroyed them both. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Poche .

HASH(0xa18f10e4) étoiles sur 5 Steamy and Sexy New Trilogy 18 mai 2005
Par M. Rondeau - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
Kresley Cole has once again taken this reader on another romantic adventure romp with the first book in a new trilogy featuring the three MacCarrick brothers. Three adventuresome and darkly dangerous Scottish brothers who live life on the edge since believing an age-old family curse that predicts that the family line would end with them.

Setting the first book in the principality of Andorra, 1856, in a startling and attention grabbing opening, Courtland MacCarrick, youngest of the three brothers, was discovering that hiring himself out as a mercenary for the very evil despot General Reynaldo Pascal was not a good thing! As Pascal was about to have Court's heart carved out of his body, Court opted to propel his bound body into the water and take his chances with the raging torrent below him.

Days later, on her morning ride, Lady Annalia Tristan Llorente discovered the half dead beat up body of Court, and realizing by the remnants of plaid that remained on his body that he was one of the despised Scots barbarians that had been hired by Pascal to subjugate the surrounding villagers she fought her initial feelings to leave him rot on the banks of the river. In spite of the fact that he was an enemy, kindness won over her fear, and she dragged Court to her home setting his broken bones and caring for his wounds. When Court regained consciousness, the battle lines were drawn as Annalia's scorn set the tone of their relationship insisting he leave. The beautiful, fiery and tantalizing Castilian aroused feelings in Court he'd long since thought he'd conquered and her feelings of superiority also raised his hackles so the fur certainly did fly! When Courtland realized that she was about to sacrifice herself to marry, his enemy Pascal in order to save her brother, Court kidnapped her, if only to save her from herself - or so he thought! The journey along the way proved to be a rollicking sensual adventure that gives new meaning to the word `steamy'!.

*** I thought this was a deliciously entertaining read that kept the sexual tension high; the adventure exciting; and culminated with a fabulous love story. Annalia and Court were really great together providing entertainment both when battling and definitely when loving. Court thought Anna petulant and spoiled; she thought of him as an ungentlemanly barbarian; definitely the ingredients for a lively romance. When Court finally discovered that Anna, the petite dainty beauty had courage, strengths and a passionate nature it brought out both the best in him as well as bringing him to his knees. The lively mixture of secondary characters, from Court's brothers, his crew of comrades, and Pascal's daughter Olivia, were all well-defined adding additional layers of depth to this very sexy romance. The dialogs, not only between the main protagonists but also between the numerous secondary characters were wonderful adding one more layer to this superb read! The only thing I must say I don't like is having to wait another year for Hugh's story, which judging by the sneak peak at the back of the book looks to be another fabulous read and a worthy addition to this newest trilogy which is going to end up on my keeper shelf! --- Marilyn, for [...]

HASH(0xa18f1330) étoiles sur 5 Great romance, hot passion, excellent story and best ending! 22 juin 2006
Par Karlyn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
This book has it all! It has a very likable Hero and Heroine, great secondary characters, a tightly woven adventure story that is very fast paced, and sizzling HOT HOT romance scenes that are very passionate. Even the ending was the most satisfying ending I've read in a romance in a long, long time. Wow, GREAT book!! "If You Dare" is a great adventure story that unites two very different people into a deeply passionate romance. Though the romance takes time to build, by the time it does it becomes sizzling. Court (our hero) is a solid HE-MAN. There is nothing soft or wimpy about this guy. Love him!! Though all romance novels have the predicable "happily ever after" ending, this one makes it really hard to guess HOW they are going to make it. The dilemma they face is based on their love for each other, which just tugs at the heart. I am very impressed with Kresley Cole's writing. I now have all her other books on rush order so I can start devouring them this weekend.

HASH(0xa18f1570) étoiles sur 5 I had to grit my teeth to get through it 25 septembre 2009
Par J. D. Witt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I read this series backwards and I'm glad I did that because the third in the series is just charming but if I'd started with this one I'd have never gotten to the third. This book irritated me to no end.

(Spoilerish) The heroine hates, and I mean hates, the hero for the entire first half of the book. Not just pretends to hate him while secretly desiring him but hates him all the way to the bone. It is really hard to enjoy a book when for the first 180 pages the lead character is spitting, cursing, insulting, despising, and then trying to escape the hero no matter how much danger it lands her in. She tries to escape him over and over until she finally gets herself shot rather than stay with him. This is romantic?

Then one day out of the blue she decides that he is not so detestable as the reasons she hates him turn out to be rather false. Fine, then she'll just fall in love with him. Just like that. But once she wants him? Then he remembers the curse he is under and starts avoiding her. Frustrating? Oh, yes it is. I almost pitched the book at that point but I'd paid good money for it so bore down and finished it. I'd rather had my money back.

I'm really sorry to write a bad review as Kresley Cole has written many good books that I've enjoyed thoroughly. Unfortunately I can't say that for this one.

HASH(0xa18f1714) étoiles sur 5 I Hate You - But Now I Love You 26 janvier 2010
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

I bought this book because I really enjoy Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series. Someone recommended that I try the MacCarrick Brothers trilogy because it is supposedly some of her best historical work. If this is an example of her best historical work I'm definitely better off not reading anymore of them.

What was up with Anna in this story? Her personality was so grating and she did such stupid things. Through out most of the book she loathed Court. Now I can understand this as I found him pretty irritating, but to hate him and then suddenly decide you're in love with him? That's pretty much exactly what Anna did.

I wasn't expecting the paranormal aspect of this book. I really didn't like it either. I think I would have gone with the flow of it better if I had actually been enjoying the book. I also seriously disliked the fake Scottish accents. I had an eye twitch by the end of the book!

I don't plan on continuing with any of this author's historical novels. I think we're both better off that way.

Draws you in on page one! I picked this up on a whim and found it to be fantastic!

I have not read much historical romance lately because they don't seem able to "grab me" anymore. So I have been sticking with contemporary. Nor do I usually write reviews. Hopefully, that is enough to indicate how much I enjoyed this book.

I would strongly recommend "If You Dare" and I will be looking for more by this author. Enjoy!
