I loved this book for the romance and the History! This is the first of the Nora Roberts books that I have ever read and I found it to be wonderfully written and Historically correct as well. I loved the strong characters of Serena and Fiona, as well as there fierce defense of their heritage. I would love to read the next book in the series but I am having trouble figuring out which comes next.
I loved this book! I found "Rebellion" to be absolutely captivating. The story takes place around the time of the ill-fated battle of Colloden, at a time when Scotland and England were very politically unstable. The main characters, Serena and Brigham, are fabulous. Serena is no typical woman of her time, she is a wonderfully strong character, off-set perfectly by Brigham, the British Lord who walks into her life one day holding her wounded brother in his arms. The history of this story was rich and fascinating, and the love story between Serena and Brigham was unlike any other I have read. There was NEVER a dull moment in this book. The supporting characters in this book, such as Serena's parents - Fiona and Ian MacGregor, Serena's siblings - Coll, Gwen, and Malcolm, Brigham's valet - Parkins, etc. are very well-developed and all play an important role in the story. The reader can't help but become fond of all of these supporting characters. I was swept along by the story that unfolds in this book and could not put it down until it was done. This book is a very satisfying read, well-written and full of romance and excitement. So, pick this book up if you can find it, it is well worth your while!Suprised I was thouroughly surprised with this novel. This was my first Nora Roberts and I am ready for more! The way she transfered from the thoughts from one character to another was very nicely done. There were surprises around every corner that keep you entranced in the story. Enjoy!
