PRETENDERS GAMES is as much a history story as a romance Political opponents, our hero and heroine learn to love each other The story is interesting, however the romance is lacking. Pretender s Games gefiel mir sehr, weil es nicht nur eine letztlich romantische Liebesgeschichte mit H hen und Tiefen bietet, sondern auch ein ziemlich drastisches Bild des Lebens in Schottland nach Culloden zeigt Vor dem Hintergrund der Willk r der Engl nder und den Konsequenzen, die diese f r die Jakobiten und deren Familien hatte, entfaltet sich die Liebesgeschichte zwischen Theadora Tilton und James McLonan Aus einer reinen Vernunftehe entsteht ganz langsam ein wenig mehr und als es hart auf hart kommt und James Leben in Gefahr ist, wird deutlich, wieviel die Beiden einander bedeuten Ich fand es wieder einmal hart, vor Augen gef hrt zu bekommen, wie wenig das Leben der Schotten damals wert war und wie schwer es war, sich gegen die Engl nder zu behaupten, selbst wenn man unschuldig war Die wackelige Rechtslage, die allgemeine Stimmung und auch die Abgeschiedenheit des Hochlands, trugen viel dazu bei, dass das Milit r viel zu oft frei schalten und walten konnte.Das Buch ist gut und fesselnd geschrieben, auch die Charaltere sind gut entwickelt und sehr komplex Hinzu kommt eine schl ssige und interessant gestaltete Story, so dass ich das Buch nur ungerne aus der Hand legte, nachdem ich einmal angefangen hatte zu lesen Mir gef llt es auf jeden Fall sehr gut und ich kann es empfehlen I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review. Pretenders GameI was enthralled by this story and it s take on the politics of the era I bought all three books in this series So far I haven t been disappointed. Pardoned Jacobite rebel marries an Englishwoman to secure his freedom Jacobite James MacLonan has spent the years since Culloden in exile, fighting in France, wandering the continent and dreaming of his home in Scotland that he thought he would never see again Now he has been granted a pardon, but the terms rankle Not only must he honor an oath to King George and steer clear of the Pretender to the throne, he must also marry within four months of his return And marry Englishwoman with strong family ties to the Whigs, at that Despite his fierce longing for the Highlands, he is not sure he can fulfill this last stipulation of his pardon until he meets Theadora Tilton Daughter of the commander of the English garrison in Edinburgh, Thea fits all of the government s requirements for James s bride, but best of all, she sparks his interest and fires his blood like no other woman ever has, and she returns his interest But are their political, ideological and cultural differences too great to overcome, or can love truly conquer all This book does an excellent job of capturing the prejudices and venomous hatred between the English and the Scots, and to a much lesser extent between Highlanders and Lowlanders It is also a fascinating study of the development of a marriage forged for political reasons and how trust is both built and destroyed However, given the degree of emotional estrangement early on in the marriage, the heat in the bedroom of the newlyweds doesn t seem authentic While some conflict can explode into heat, daily fighting over a period of time does not foster sustained sexual tension, but rather promotes estrangement but this is a romance novel, after all The plot of this book is entertaining, with some surprising elements Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by this book and finished it in just an afternoon I am looking forward to continuing on with the next Installment in this series.
