Eleanor has decided to go forward with marring French noble rather than Edward I's choice of a brutal knight. Eleanor was on her way to marry her fathers friend / French Noble but a Highland outlaw Br [...]

    An extremely frustrating read, but it had an odd allure. I love a medieval story, even more when it is about Scotland. William Wallace, Robert Bruce, I read hard core history books about the Scottish quest for freedom. This book used Wallace's Scotland as the background, and brought Brendan and Eleanor together. In the first 30% of the story I seriously considered abandoning ship. Eleanor was an indignant heiress who was rather blinded by her "loyalty". We often see such heroines in books: they [...]

    This book was difficult to truly savor the reading due to both missing letters, mainly “F” but also for formatting issues. There was no separation by paragraphs and it was just one big run-on. There was delineation by chapters but it was aesthetically jarring. So I had to take away a star.Lady Eleanor of Clarin was forced to marry in order to solidify her claim to inherited family lands. She decided to marry an old friend, French Count Alain de Lacville. On her journey to her betrothed, Lady [...]

    Thank-you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for my e-galley reissue of this novel in exchange for an honest review.This novel is set in the early fourteenth century during the Scottish Wars of Independence. It is based upon two fictional characters, Brendan and Eleanor, however the historical figure of William Wallace is also a central character of the novel.Eleanor is an English countess, holding land in her own right (not likely) and Brendan is a Scottish rebel who fights alongside Wallace. Th [...]

    Este libro es una nueva edición del, ya antes publicado (2001), Seize the dawn de Shannon Drake. Esta novela romántica esta situada en Inglaterra del siglo 13 y relata las duras vivencias y desafíos de Lady Eleanor de Clarin. Su vida se complica aún más cuando se enamora de Brendan Graham, el hombre que considera su enemigo. Trama: La historia es principalmente romántica y tienes varios momentos muy hermosos pero, en ciertos momentos, me ha parecido un poco lenta y tediosa. Al inicio, las [...]

As for this reviewer, I’m mostly about t [...]

    Great story--poor editingI am loving the Graham Clan stories and the historical background. I am appalled, however, at the overwhelming, distracting number of typographical errors! Did someone actually proofread this book before it was published? I will read the next book in the series because of the rich characters and Scottish history. Please have someone edit these books more carefully!

    I couldn't finish it. I hated it too much.

    Eleanor of Clarin, Yorkshire, is thought of as a saint by her people because of her actions during an attack by Scots. She's now on her way to France to marry an old friend to save her lands, when she's captured by a pirate and then by Brendan Graham - a Scot and cohort of William Wallace in their fight against the English. Brendan and Eleanor fall in love, but duty requires them to part - her to marry and him to return to the fight in Scotland. However, when Eleanor is accused falsely of poison [...]

    This book is so old school, I had to check the copyright date to see when it was published. It's very "Flame and the Flower," with slightly less rape. Our heroine is spunky and beloved, a sword-wielding vixen who fears nothing but fire, and really hates Scotsmen. She is captured by French pirates on her way to marry a French nobleman, rescued by a hated Scotsman, and threatened with rape by historical figures at various points. She swims to shore, somehow neither freezing to death nor drowning, [...]

    ARC REVIEW I love Heather Graham historicals, I appreciate all the research and time she puts into it to make it so much more than just a bodice ripper. Heather Graham historicals are more than just romance novels they are a journey to the past. With as much strife and bloodshed that happened at the turning of the 13th to 14th centuries it would be hard not to write an emotional, heart wrenching novel that takes place in that time. Mrs. Graham created a love story around the Scottish fight for f [...]

    Annemarie Macken
    A strangely and almost inexplicable allure is part of this novel, which, although not always well written amidst endless grammatical problems and some serious repetition of the same ideas, somehow retains a charm that is hard to resist, particularly as the novel moves towards its climax.The characters hold some kind of fascination for the avid reader of historical fiction, particularly the building and soaring of their impossible romance, one that is seemingly frowned upon as they are arch enemi [...]

    "Seize the Dawn" tells the story of the 12th century Highlanders from Scotland who bitterly fight with their English enemies. Eleanor is on her way to marry her elderly count when Brendan the brave Scot saves her from pirates and plans to escort her; she decides, out of her hatred for Scots, to jump the ship. The rest of the plot revolves around the love/hate relationship between Brendan and Eleanor, even as she is accused of being a murderess and he risks life and limb to keep her safe.This boo [...]

    I read a lot of historical fiction. Have read many books related to the different periods in history where the Scots attempted to win their freedom from the English. I am familiar with this period of history having read about William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. I felt the book was well researched and accurate historically but was disappointed that it was re released with so many spelling and grammatical errors. I feel this is a disservice to Ms. Graham who is an excellent author and story tell [...]

    Thank you Netgalley for this ARC for my honest review.Lady Eleanor of Clarin meets Brendan Graham of Scotland. There is instant chemistry for them as in the love/hate kind. In the beginning both are passionately apposed to one another. The two meet on the battlefield and then later at sea. They travel to France and then back to England and eventually Scotland.I'm tired from their travels! A lot happened regarding their affection for one another as well as the supporting characters and how the st [...]

    I read a reissue of this provided by NetGalley.The story on its face appears to be simple: William Wallace (yes, that one) has a brave Scot soldier. Said soldier meets a lady on the field of battle, and is suitably dazzled. They're separated. They meet again when he's rescuing her from pirates, and now the issue is that the lady is English and thinks all Scots are savages. She's heading to France, to a loveless but safe marriage with some old codger.I was bored and hurried through the rest--you [...]

    *ARC provided by NEtgalley against an honest review*I wasn't expecting this book to be so much about history. I didn't mind it but I usually much more interesting in the romance part of the Historical Romance. But it was interesting. Howerver, I couldn't get attached to any character at all in the story. None of them touched me or made me feel anything. All in all, this book wasn't bad but I think it just wasn't for my taste.

    Tammy
    A wonderful historical adventure. Lady Eleanor must marry to save her lands, she if off to France to marry an old titled friend of her father’s when her adventure begins. Great historical read. So much drama and suspense. Feels like you are going back in time. Great characters and chemistry add to this wonderful story.

    Seize the Dawn by Heather Graham is a beautifully written romance.I have read countless paranormal novels written by Heather Graham, but this is the first of her romances that I have read, and I am HOOKED!I received a copy of Seize the Dawn by Heather Graham from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    L.W.
    This was very interesting as far as the political intrigue that was happening at this time and how Ms. Drake was able to capitalize on it. I liked the characters, I liked the plot twists and the ultimate outcome. It was a worthwhile read, (in my opinion) and I'll probably read it again somewhere down the road.

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I love Heather Graham books. She is a master of historical romance. This book proves just that. As always the characters are great and the romance is outstanding.

    Moja prvotina od tejto autorky. Odvtedy už nejaký ten rok ubehol a ja od nej mám doma všetky knihy, ktoré u nás v preklade vyšli :) Milujem túto ženu, rovnako ako aj jej tvorbu. Táto kniha je trpko-sladká, no čo už, nemôže byť všetko krásne. I keď mohlo by :o)))))))))))))))
