Elizabeth Stuart won the RITA award for Best Historical Romance in 1991 for WHERE LOVE DWELLS, but in my opinion all of her novels would qualify as 5 star keepers.

Elizabeth Stuart won the RITA award for Best Historical Romance in 1991 for WHERE LOVE DWELLS, but in my opinion all of her novels would qualify as 5 star keepers. So many historical romances have very little history. Not this one. I love how Stuart seamlessly weaves in rich historical events throughout the novel. She brings Scotland of the early 16th century alive as she uses both real people and fictional characters to tell a complex, intriguing story. This is set A REAL Scottish Historical!

WITHOUT HONOR was the first by Stuart I read and I can say without a doubt, she is a great talent. So many "historical" romances have very little history. But not hers. I love how Stuart seamlessly weaves in rich historical events throughout the novel. She brings Scotland of the early 16th century alive as she uses both real people and fictional characters to tell a complex, intriguing story.

Set in Scotland during the time Archibald Douglas, the Earl of Angus, was just divorced from the dowager queen Margaret Tudor, elder sister of Henry VIII of England, this tells how Angus effectively ruled Scotland, being the regent for young King James. Angus was arrogant and claimed too much power for himself drawing the ire of many, including the young king. Against this tumultuous time, Jonet Maxwell, heiress to the clan Maxwell (the enemy of clan Douglas) fled her home (castle Beryl), seeking to join with her beloved uncle, Robert, Lord Mure. Alexander Hepburn, Baron of Durnam, enemy of Jonet's uncle, unwittingly intercepts her flight and, once he realizes who she is, uses her to get to her uncle. She is young and naïve and he is a jaded rake who has sold his talents to France, England and Scotland. He lives for revenge of his father's death, a death he blames on Mure, Jonet's uncle.

I have to say that the hero was a cad for most of the book so at times it was hard to like him. He was constantly hurting Jonet. Oh, he warned her he would (don't they always?) but still he hurt her. And because Jonet was naïve and weak when it came to him, it sometimes made her come across as spineless. When she went willingly into his arms after he betrayed her, it made me want to slap her. And that was BEFORE he spent the night in the arms of his long time paramour. He would have happily taken Jonet's innocence then if she hadn't stopped him--all in the same day! What a cad! Guess the book was named for him. But don't get me wrong, he comes out smelling like a rose and those truly "without honor" are identified. Oh yeah, Jonet gets a spine. It's a compelling tale and a most worthy romance. I recommend it.

As far as I can tell, Stuart only wrote five books before leaving her writing career to raise her family. But what she has given us is worth holding dear. Here they are:

RECKLESS ANGEL (1988, under the pen name Elizabeth Awbrey)
HEARTSTORM (1989)
WHERE LOVE DWELLS (1990, RITA award winner for Best Historical. 1991)
WITHOUT HONOR (1994)
BRIDE OF THE LION (1995)

Have read and reread this one --indeed, all of Ms. Stuarts books--until they are falling apart. Someone needs to release them as ebooks. These are some of the best the historical romance genre has to offer.

I'm going to cheat a wee bit and add this bit from the book description:

"It was a time of revolution and chaos, of danger and deception...when Scotland teetered on the brink of civil war and lawlessness swept the borderlands. And in the midst of this magnificent struggle for power, two strangers born to be enemies discovered a passion as savage as the wild Scottish moors."

Set during the reign of Henry VIII, this novel was mostly set in Scotland during a very turbulent period; a young James V is a *cough* guest *cough* of Archibald Douglas, 6th Earl of Angus. Political tricks, spies, counter-spies, treason, treachery, dirty dealing and double dealing abound. Into this feisty stew comes Alexander Hepburn, baron of Durham and wealthy heiress Jonet Maxwell. Alex hates the Maxwells, particularly Jonet's beloved uncle and he'll go to any lengths to get his revenge - and that includes kidnapping and seducing her to get it.

That's about all anyone needs to know going in, this is way too complex to try to spell out without doing a book report. This was quite the roller coaster ride with ups and downs and twists and turns and you never can tell until the end whose side Alex is on (and poor Jonet can never figure it out either). Is he on the good side or the bad side? Does he love Jonet, or just out to use her to get his revenge on her uncle? Is he working for Wolsey, Douglas or Jamie? We know it's not the French, since they have a price on his head. No matter, Alex has some of the best quips since Francis Lymond in Dunnett's Lymond Chronicles. Toss that in with a bit of a Romeo and Juliet twist and you've got a near-perfect read, with just the right mixture of history and romance.

I have to say that this book was really entertaining. I can't stop to read it over and over again. The story is about Jonet Maxwell, a heiress, that becomes involved in a sensual adventure when she mets up with Alexander Hepburn, the sexy revengeful spy. Jonet was looking for her uncle that had been accused of treason. The Douglasses(bad guys) came to their land and prisoned her. She escaped to find herself imprisoned into another jail. Love. Alex had a conflict w/ Jonet's uncle, a long time ago and seeks revenge and tries to use her for his own purposses. But at the end he regrets everything and let himself light up again by the green-eyed lass that stole his heart. If you want action, adventure, romance, sensuality, and drama you just found the perfect book. You'll keep reading it over and over again like me.

I have read hundreds of novels over the years and this is absolutely one of my favorites. Fabulous, exciting story with characters you grow to love! I wish Ms. Stuart was still writing. I have read all of her books and they are all excellent, but this is my favorite by far. Also great- Heartstorm by the same author. BUY THEM BOTH TODAY!!
