I had read the first book by this author "Ariana's Pride" and since I enjoyed it, I picked up the 2nd one too.
The books can be read as standalone novels and a few of the characters from the 1st make appearances in this one.

I liked the heroine Catherine from the beginning. Even though she lets others run her life and take advantage of her, she never feels spineless. She has grace and a huge heart, which really shows in her friendship with her Maid. That friendship was precious to watch blossom. She never looked down on Gael based on her social standing. Gael and her Gavin both are such great secondary characters in this novel, they are more like part of an ensemble cast.
Let me not forget another character I loved, Father Finlay :).

The Hero Kyle is a great fit for Catherine. Both are very duty bound and so it creates some heartache and separation along the way. Wonderful romance between them that grows more as time goes on. He makes quite the dashing Hero :)

I don't want to give to much away so I'll just say this book has Kings, Queens, treason, love, Gypsies and a lot more. Its a longer book at over 10000 Kindle locations and it still went by fairly quickly.

Only one small issue for me was that I think I would have liked a epilogue of sorts. Maybe that is just me being greedy for not wanting to leave all the people I got to know so well :)

I am not very good at expressing myself in reviews but I really enjoyed this book with its historical details and great romances. If I could give half stars I think this would be a 4 1/2 stars for me.

Sometimes when we pick up a book, we want it to go on forever because it is that good. This is one such book. It was enjoyable!

I loved this book and would highly recommend it.

I loved Ariana's Pride and this next installment was just as good. Once again Margaret Lake has captivated me with a tale of long ago history, longing, greed, manipulation, friendship, lust and love. Well done!

Catherine and the Captain is one of the few romance novels I have read. Although I don't usually read romance, historical fiction is one of my favorite genres. I figured I could deal with the romance for the sake of the historical fiction. What actually happened is the story grabbed me at the beginning and kept me interested throughout, and I found myself caring about the characters.

The story takes place during the reign of Richard III - the end of the War of the Roses. Unlike some recent popular, traditionally published, books, this book is well researched and the facts (with the exception of one incident that the author explains) are not ignored or changed for the convenience of the story. I enjoyed this book and hope to read more stories by Margaret Lake

For the sake of full disclosure, please let me begin by stating that Margaret Lake is my friend and that I was a beta reader for this book. Romance is not a genre that I usually read but historical fiction is my favorite.

Catherine and the Captain is a very engaging piece of historical fiction covering the short, violent reign of Richard III during the War of the Roses. The Battle of Bosworth Field, as recounted (and footnoted) by Ms Lake, was the decisive battle that ended the war, the House of York, the Plantagenet dynasty and the Middle Ages in England. I may have skipped a few paragraphs about fabrics and colors but I still enjoyed the book enormously. This is a must read for any fans of romantic, historical fiction and a good read for anyone else that likes a well told story.

Although the author has the historical details of the main events down pat, the behaviour of the heroine seems off - either she's too docile or she suddenly displays streaks of "modern day heroinism". After a while, I just read the story for the sake of finishing it. The sub-plot of the heroine's maid and the hero's squire seems very artificial - these two characters just act too modern, bossing their respective employers around. Compared to them, the main romance seems tepid and boring.

Didn't like it much. Two stars only for the historical detail of Richard III and his family.
I finished Catherine and the Captain very quickly and I can definitely say that I was pulled into the story. It took me a little while to realize that I already knew part of the story of Richard III, but that made it more entertaining. It did end rather abruptly - I was hoping for a little more closure, but I have a good imagination, so I'll finish it however I want.
