We joyfully request your attendance at the wedding of Miss Angelica Cynster... but not until she and her hero lay to rest an ancient grudge in the Scottish Highlands!
Headstrong Angelica Cynster is certain she'll recognize her fated husband at first sight. And when her eyes meet those of a mysterious nobleman, she knows beyond a doubt that he's the one. But her heart is soon pounding for an entirely different reason - when her hero abducts her!
The eighth Earl of Glencrae has no choice but to kidnap Angelica, the one Cynster sister with whom he hadn't wanted to tangle. But to save his castle and his clan, he must persuade her to assist him - and he's prepared to offer marriage to seal the deal!

Absolutely love Stephanie Laurens & Cynster books

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes. It would have taken longer to read, lol

What did you like best about this story?

Following the Cynster's, of course.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I didn't really enjoy the voice. Not what I imagine a female Cynster to sound like. Too weak and timid, not strong and confident.

Could you see The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

I don't know. It might would take away from the book.

Any additional comments?

Not sure I will get another book with this narrator?

A Waste of Time and Money

I bought this book at the recommendation of others on this site who claimed the third and last book in the series was better than the other two, including "wonderful" and " a great wurprising and warm ending." To me, it was as bad as the others: NO PLOT, repetitive debates of "does he really love me or not", and the noble Earl debating how he can save his clan and save the reputation of Angelica. The dialogue between the lovers and the love scenes are boring with little dynamics or passion. The first 5 hours or so revolve around trying to decide how to get out of London without being caught. Meanwhile Angelica who has found her "hero" - no reason given other than she has the magic necklace around her neck -- and agrees to cooperate with the Earl, won't agree to marry the Earl, but still spends the time redecorating his London house and polishing his silver. Then the next 5 hours or so are spent traveling to the castle, looking at maps, staying in inns and trying to decide whether to sleep together. The scene when they finally have sex together is so stupid: She surpirses him by showing up naked in his bed and then proceeds to give him a multi-point speech about why they should have sex. Only the last couple hours, of this very long book, deal with the crazy mother and why she wants revenge against the Cynsters, and the final wrap-up of the series. Stephanie Laurens has been one of my favorite authors, but this series has been truly awful! The series is nothing like the earlier Cynster novels with fasinating plots and characters. It makes me wonder if I'll ever buy another book by Laurens.
