Hose are scars she ll carry with her forever SABRINA HER TWO SIBLINGS RETURN TO THEIR FAMILY and her siblings return to their family in England and without their father off galavanting in Europe to make ends meet she becomes the infamous highway bandit Bonnie Charlie One day she robs the wrong man Lucien Duke of Camareigh and he s hot to catch that bandit and stop him once and for all That is until he thinks he s trapped Charlie and gets the surprise of his lifeThis being a romance novel and all I suspect you have a good idea where the story goes from there This wasn t a bad read by any means but there were just "Too Many Silly Twists With "many silly twists with cheese sized plot holes that eep me from rating this higher One night of hot sex with a complete stranger and it s true love forever She robs people to raise money to give her grasping father money so he won t marry them off Amnesia Gah Sabrina is just too stubborn for words and never uses the common sense she was born with much stamping of feet Lucien is just too dark and moody and way OTT in the super hero Duke department I also got very tired of always hearing about his awful scar that terrified all the ladies I got it the first time around and didn t need to be clubbed over the head over and over and over again I might have rated it lower than three stars but things did pick up with a mystery at the castle in the Highlands and Sabrina finally grew up and stopped stamping her feet This is one of those old school romances and while reasonably entertaining for a brain candy mood it does show its age and might not suit every reader consider yourself warned Moonstruck Madness by Laurie McBain is a 1977 Avon Publication When I noticed a couple of Laurie McBain s books were up for review on Netgalley I didn t hesitate to reuest them I am thrilled to see some of these books are being released in digital format However when I started on Chance the Winds of Fortune I realized the book was the second in the series I didn t see the first book up for review so I went into my vintage and collectable bookshelf to see if by some minor miracle I had a copy of this book Being a big fan of Laurie s I did Basics of successful agriculture in the tropics keep many of her books so I was relieved to discover that I did still have a copy YAY Written way back in the late 70 s this book might be tossed into the bodice ripper category but frankly I didn t feel that way about it Yes there are some uncomfortable treatments of women but despite what many would like to believe these depictions were accurate and true to the time period Other than that this book is pretty much a standard historical romance for the time frame it was written in Sabrina has left her beloved Highlands of Scotland for England with her aunt sister and young brother They are not well off and Sabrina takes part and even devises some dangerous stunts in order toeep her family afloat until she crosses the Duke of Camareigh who puts her little enterprise out of business In order to survive Sabrina will have to escape her father s plans for her which leads her right back into the arms of Lucien Dominick I loved this story It s a real classic and is tame enough that modern readers will find it just as enjoyable now as romance lovers did when the book was first published Sabrina is bold daring and a woman who doesn t give up without a fight I loved her determination her cleverness and her fiery passion Lucien was absolutely hilarious most of time as the author depicted him so authentically He is haughty arrogant and manipulative too but his punishment is having to deal with Sabrina the love of his life who always Regenerating Agriculture: Policies and Practice for Sustainability and Self Reliance keeps him begging for The secondary characters were alsoey in this story and give it a very tiny paranormal element as well There is lots of action adventure drama and emotions in this one and the writing is simply wonderful When I read these older books and find myself swept away so immersed in another world never wanting the story to end I can start to feel a little wistful wishing there were books like these being written in present day Thankfully a publisher has seen the worthiness of these novels and are reissuing them breathing new life into them so that hopefully a whole new generation will come to love these classics too 5 stars I read this book when it first came out in the mid 1970 s It was one of the first explicitly erotic romance novels along with Rosemary Rogers Sweet Savage Love and it had a profound impact on my adolescent sensibilitiesSabrina Verrick a Scots English noblewoman in exile in England with her sister and little brother after Culloden has taken to the roads as the

Laurie McBain ½ 6 Summary

,

Moonstruck MadnessSee tags my feelings were all over "The Place With This One I Decided " place with this one I decided give it a 4 since I was convinced this would be a 5 the first 50% of the book and then it went down to a 3 the last 50%First regarding the Audible part that was awesome The narrator was great and the whispersync between the audio and the indle version was flawless I LOVED itNow on to the story itself I loved the first half It was improbable implausible and completely OTT but boy was it fun There was never a dull moment from the Scottish battlefield in the beginning when the heroine Sabrina was 12 13yo and barely escaped to England with her life to the first time we see her highwayman alter ego Bonnie Charlie at work when she is 17 Sabrina was the daughter of an English Maruis and the Scottish daughter of a Highland Laird Her mother died "IN CHILDBIRTH HAVING HER YOUNGER BROTHER RICHARD SO THEY "childbirth having her younger brother Richard so they went to live with the Laird in Scotland Otherwise they would have starved since their father was a neglectful piece of work who abandoned his children completely leaving them unchaperoned unless you count batty Aunt Margaret Sabrina and her siblings live happily in Scotland for 5 6 years until the Laird is illed in a battle with the English After that they return to her father s home in the English countryside and almost starve until Sabrina takes the obvious route and decides to become a highwayman at 14 15 So improbable Yet still fun and entertaining Sabrina herself was cocky overconfident and used to having her own way as she had only her much timid older sister 10yo brother and batty aunt around She ruled the roost However to balance it out she was charming not at all snobbish and generous She was absurd yet endearing and I was able to forgive her flaws due to her age and circumstances She had managed to feed clothe and Mobilizing Islam keep her entire family in relative comfort for their station Remarkably she was this extremely successful flamboyant masked highwayman who never harmed anyone and was never harmedThen she screws upShe robs the dinner party of a local Lord which was reckless to begin with but then she compounds it by taunting the arrogant handsome yet scar faced guest Lucien Duke of Camareigh She compounds her mistake by holding up his coach a few chapters later and daring to slap him across the face when he taunts her Now Lucien is pissed and determined toill Bonnie Charlie Sabrina falls right into his VERY obvious trap and is nearly illed in a sword fight with the Duke That is when he realizes he is a very beautiful sheHe nurses her back to health and she ends up giving up her virginity to him partially to force him to let down his guard and partially because of her traitorous body Lucien is besotted and vows to make her his mistress buy her a house etc etc At this point he does not realize that she is the daughter of a Maruis Sabrina realizes she s in love with Lucien but nows she can t accept such a position in his life and sneaks away the next morning Lucien feels duped and is still horny for her so he tracks her down and discovers her true identity Then gets his revenge by ruining her reputation to prevent her marriage to a drunken slob of a Duke that her greedy father was forcing on her The crap broke father turned up with his new wife after a 10yr absence and decided to sell his 2 beautiful daughters in marriageSabrina s father is enraged by his thwarted plans and begins beating Sabrina with a riding crop until Lucien rides to the rescue He has realized uite conveniently that Sabrina is the perfect solution to all his problems He has to wed before a certain date or lose his inheritance yes that old gem and Sabrina is both desirable and a Lady making her acceptable to the grandmother enforcing the deadline Plus he s already compromised her therefore marriage would welcomed by her greedy father and not such a shock to society Of course Lucien also has deeper feelings for Sabrina that he doesn t fully realizeAnd here s where it begins to fall apart Sabrina is angry with the Duke and claims to hate him at this point Understandable He had humiliated her and prompted the beating from her father But the lengths she goes to in order to thwart him go FAR beyond OTT hokey fun into TSTL land Seriously I d be here all day if I chronicled her selfish stupidity and this review is already too long Then she gets very selective amnesia the Duke marries her while she doesn t remember hating him and they are complete lovebirds for a while Lucien having realized he is head over heels in love with her Oh and she s pregnant Of course eventually she remembers hates Lucien again and proceeds to be a complete brat for the next year He is a dumb ass himself and instead of wooing her and admitting he s fallen in love with her he gives up and goes to London where he may or may not have a mistress While he s gone Sabrina runs off to Scotland to save her treasure seeking little brother BY HERSELF she s a Duchess she could have brought a small army with her After she and her brother have a bunch of misadventures in Scotland she and Lucien finally have. She's one thing by day something else altogether by nightAfter escaping the slaughter of her clan at a young age Scottish noblewoman Sabrina Verrick provides for her siblings by living a double life until the night she en. Their HEA when he comes after her and rescues her from a crazed Highlander So yes a lot of complaining for 4 stars but it really was overall entertaining the narration was engaging and there was always something going on I just wish the author hadn t turned Sabrina into such a childish idiot in the last half of the book I was so stoked by this book and it was uite the letdown A heroine can be tough without being TSTL see Elenora from Jennifer Blake s Notorious Angel for an excellent example As an aside this book appears many bodice ripper "Lists Which Don T "which I don t There s no rape or forced seduction which IMHO is the hallmark of a bodice ripper The H does slap the heroine once but it didn t bother me like it normally does Sabrina had just slapped him and he just slapped her back out of instinct and instantly regretted it Historically speaking any other man would have probably beat the living crap out of her at some point Since I read the re issued edition I do wonder if this wasn t a case of selective editing to be PC and in line with today s romance novel standards Hmmmm will have to ask my fellow BR fans Shutting up now In another lifetime I would have gobbled up this swashbuckling historical romance complete with reuisite scarred hero and cross dressing heroine who robs the rich to feed the poor Part Robin Hood part Zorro this novel is definitely well written with meticulous attention to minutiae of the period however the vast cast of characters continuous contrived coincidences and twisty plot developments became increasingly implausible and juvenile Probably the best part of the novel was the terrifying and vivid description of the real life battle at Culloden Moor in 1746 one that rang the death nell for an entire culture and marks the beginning of the upheaval in our heroine s life But what follows is rather tedious and dullMy tastes in HR have definitely veered into dark and gothicky lately so this well crafted novel that could have held me captive only a few years ago unfortunately could not pass muster presently DNF at the halfway mark This book was originally written in 1977 and wow have times changed for historical romances And boy am I gladLucien is not the type of hero who should be put on a pedestal Most of the bad things that happen to our heroine are his fault but he wants to be praised when he fixes them again The book

Scottish Heroine masuerading as a Highwayman and a scarred English Duke make for an Absorbing Love StorySet in 1746 in Scotland prologue and 1751 in England this is the story of Sabrina Verrick the Scottish noblewoman who along with her sister and brother survive after their grandfather Laird of the MacElden clan is brutally slain by the English at Culloden Moor They escape to England where they live in the country at the rundown estate of their father an English maruis who abandoned them as children There to feed her family Sabrina becomes the highwayman Bonnie Charlie robbing the rich to aid the poor One man she robs Lucien Duke of Camareigh a gambler and a rogue is no English fop as are most of Sabrina s victims A self made man he decides to trap the wily bandit and have his revenge Once he captures Charlie speaking his shoulder the duke realizes Charlie is a beautiful young woman When she won t reveal who she is he decides to try seduction Superbly written you ll find this one hard to put down I love the logic of McBain s intricate plotno improbable moments here No contrived black moments Only great storytelling and suspenseful action The dialog is clever and the characters wonderfully developed Sabrina is courageous good hearted and rebellious to the end and Camareigh is a tough alpha male just the ind we like to see fall to love s power McBain paints vivid pictures of Culloden to start with and then the English countryside thereafter putting you right in the scene It is so well done Reading this just reminded me that a 5 star classic never goes out of style Written in 1977 it sold a million copies I see whyI highly recommend it and the others in the trilogyDominick SeriesMoonstruck Madness 1977 Sabrina and LucienChance The Winds Of Fortune 1980 their daughter
