I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my reviewFrom the moment Farah wipes the blood from Dougan s hands they are bound to one another two outcasts in an orphanage On a fateful night Dougan violently protects Farah and they are separated cast out into their fates It is not until seventeen years later that Farah learns what befell her childhood friend Dorian Blackwell the Blackheart of Ben More villainous fiend and king of the underworld kidnaps Farah and claims he is there to protect Dougan s Fairy Leaving most unsaid but what is heartbreakingly clear in the painful spaces between words Dorian recounts his experience in jail with Dougan to Farah how they banded together to try and survive and how Dougan would tell stories about Farah to the other boys Dorian plans to make good on the deathbed promise he made to Dougan about eventually finding Farah and making sure she was safe What Dougan didn t know was that Farah had her own painful past she was running from and Dorian feels he must restore Farah to her rightful place in society There are lies half truths dangers and love but most importantly a feeling that destiny won t be denied This is the first book by Kerrigan Byrne I have read it will definitely not be my last The Highwayman took me by surprise with its sweeping emotional romantic story Byrne s writing had a way about it that I felt like I was walking the streets of London with Farah and Dorian everything is described but not overly in a way that bogs you down with details she was a master of making you feel through showing not telling The overall details of the story with the characters and their actions leans toward a darker tone but there is lightness to the story that springs from our main character s relationship for balance Dorian and Farah have a certain spark between them that is at turns playful light deep emotional burning and heavy Their contentment to be around one another colors their dialogue at times with a lightheartedness that makes their growing love believable and investing to read Farah s journey from the orphanage to her position at the Police Headuarters was taken with Dougan in mind with every step Farah very easily could have been written as a saintly martyr but instead she is shown to be while inherently goodhearted also a steel spined survivor she s believable Dorian s background and dark attitude could have easily been written to make him a Beauty and the Beast caricature but instead he is given depth of emotion He is single minded in his pursuit of taking care of Farah but with a yearning stubborn streak and desperate desires of a man still locked in an abused boy s mindset of protection mode he s believable When together the author doesn t come out and tell us they want each instead it s felt by the reader in every glance Dorian gives Farah that isn t seen and every touch Farah reaches out to give that is never felt by Dorian There s anger desire hurt hunger lies and love all swirling between Farah and Dorian together they re believable Dorian and Farah are clearly the center piece of the story as they should be and the structure of the story supported that with the beginning setting up Dougan and Farrah s relationship the middle introducing Farrah to Dorian and creating their relationship and the second half delving into the mystery and intrigue while bonding our couple If I were to express any complaints which trust me are minor it would be that Dougan s childhood origins were a bit murky and that Farrah s endangerment from her father s lawyer Warrington could have been fleshed out in regards to how I didn t really feel the danger from Warrington as he was too much to the peripheral of the story Byrne s secondary characters did an amazing job of adding to the story and world she created for her characters Dorian s house full of men who were all forged in the fire together from prison again could have come off as bears with hearts of gold caricatures but instead are given just enough individual thoughts and emotions to make them memorable with adding to the story instead of feeling tagged on after thoughts or show stealers Even while putting me through the wringer with Farrah and Dorian Byrne was still able to sueeze some heartbreak out of me for Dorian s man Walters and Farrah s friend Gemma honestly I dare anyone not to shed at least a few internal tears over their uiet moment in the kitchen at the end This feeling of connection to minor characters was another reason why I felt Byrne knocked this one out of the park Byrne s writing style reminded me a little bit of Amanda uick s historicals the sentences and character s actions can come off at times light and loving but you will suddenly find yourself wrecked by the hidden emotional depth and the overall story somewhat reminded me of an updated 21st century A Rose in Winter by Kathleen Woodiwiss There are a couple hotter rougher moments in this but ultimately the story is dominated by the searing emotion between our couple If you are a historical romance fan then this is a must read for you The second in the series looks to be about Dorian s friend and assassin Christopher Argent and based on the glimpses we get of Argent in this book I m pre ordering

the women who love them a hint of danger only makes the heart beat fasterSTEALING BEAUTYDorian Blackwell the Blackheart of Ben More is a ruthless villain Scarred and hard hearted Dorian is one of London’s wealthiest most influential men who will stop at nothing to wreak vengeance on those who’ve wronged himand. 35 starsFor eight year old Farah and eleven year old Dougan Mackenzie life at Applecross Orphanage in 1855 is made bearable by their friendship which deepens as the years pass Life without the other seems unthinkable and so at the tender ages of ten and thirteen they seal their love in marriage vows by handfastingSeparated soon after the story picks up in London seventeen years later Farah now a clerk at Scotland Yard where she is known as the widowed Mrs Mackenzie comes face to face with Dorian Blackwell the ruthless criminal overlord when he is brought in for uestioning Blackwell who controls much of the London underworld learns that Farah Mackenzie s life is in danger Determined to honour a vow he once made to keep her safe Dorian kidnaps Farah away to his Scottish castle The Highwayman is the first book in the new series Victorian Rebels by Kerrigan Byrne and though this isn t my first read of Ms Byrne this is my first full length novel of hers I ve read It s well written with a mixture of romance and mystery The details and descriptions of London its streets people Scotland Yard and also Scotland are written with depth The first chapter where two children pledge themselves to each other with such sweet and innocent love is the best part of this story for me Farah is a sensible and strong heroine whose love for the abused and dark Dorian remains steadfast Dorian is a tortured and tormented hero physically psychologically emotionallyHowever the story is fairly predictable Dorian s self flagellation at how wicked and vile he is and not good enough for Dougan s Fairy Farah got old uick Farah is so forgiving so good that her character verges on caricature And though Dorian is written as a sympathetic hero with his horrific past I didn t actually feel that this story was as dark and grim as it should have been Dorian and Farah are so good Too good Despite Dorian s dark past and present reputation as a criminal he does good deeds righting the wrongs of society using his wealth and influence He s even got a Robin Hood like reputation As do his men They may be killers thugs extortionists and thieves but only where the villains are concerned There s even a whore with a heart of gold who Farah befriends I know this is what romance readers look for in their romance novels But for me it was all too sweet too romance y too formulaic Other problems I had with this I ve spoiler tagged as some may be spoilers view spoilerSex Scenes I always have problems with sexual explicitness in historical romances Not the graphic descriptions themselves per se but believing that gently reared ladies were as keenly involved and willing to perform with such abandon in their first sexual experiences as Farah is I know steamy sex scenes make great reading but I just find it all too improbable in a historical setting And of course we have the wedding night orgasms for the erstwhile virginLadies and ViolenceDespite Farah s years of work at Scotland Yard I doubt that she as a woman a respectable widow would have been allowed to be exposed to physical violence and by the man who supposedly loved her during an interrogationThe Highwayman TitleErwhy exactly was this titled The Highwayman when very little time or detail was given over to Dorian s days as a highwayman I was hoping for action and adventure Unfortunately there was not a stand and deliver in sight The BaddieA lot of what the main villain got up to was off page We learn about it later but I think this plot should have been given page time as it was an important part of the storyDorian s Touching ProblemThis was a major part of the story between Dorian and Farah It was one of the reasons for keeping them apart and yet it resolved too uickly and easilyDorianDouganI just couldn t understand why he kept his identity secret for so long from Farah I know keeping the secret propelled the plot But the reasons simply weren t compelling enoughAnd they ALL Lived Happily Ever AfterNot only the Hh but a number of characters ended up with a HEA It was just a little too syrupy for me Homosexuality in Victorian TimesAn associate and friend of Dorian s who Farah has known for barely a day tells her with hardly a hesitation that he s homosexual She then blithely accepts this pronouncement around a spoonful of pudding Please authors just don t I m all for eual representation and euality regardless of gender race creed or sexual orientation In real life While it s okay to own your sexuality in the 21st century it wasn t okay in Victorian England to come out as homosexual and certainly not okay to share with a virtual stranger I know this is fiction but this particular bloke would ve been careful He d already been imprisoned once hide spoiler
