Nicola, who is a down-down-to-earth member of high society, is still in love with her former lover who has been dead for ten years. One can almost feel her pain and longing for him.
Jack, "The Gentleman" highwayman, is a character I think every woman would love to meet. He is vowing revenge against Exmoor for a past wrong. Jack is definitely a hero to fall in love with. A sort of Robin Hood to the villagers.
Even though the direction this book is going in seems pretty obvious, the fun part is getting to the destination (the last page!) This book had me smiling and practically on the edge of my seat. Of course characters from the other two books in the series are in this one and that adds to the fun. This was definitely my favorite of the three books. It was completely enjoyable. (It is comparable to the Mallory Novels by Johanna Lindsey.) You will love the characters just as much. I can't say enough about this book except that it is a MUST READ!!!
(I would also like to see more books written that involve these characters)
Nicola has stayed away from Exmoor even though he married her sister Deborah. In 1815 Nicola finally agrees to visit in response to Deborah's urgent plea to help her through her pregnancy in light of three previous miscarriages. On the way to Exmoor, The Gentleman stops her coach, robs Nicola, and steals a kiss. To her guilt as she has stayed loyal to the memory of Gil, she liked the kiss and soon learns he is a popular Robin Hood-type figure. The Gentleman keeps showing up in a weird courting of Nicola and soon they fall in love, but her safety becomes questionable since Exmoor wants the Gentleman dead.
NO OTHER LOVE is an exciting Regency romance filled with non-stop action and an entertaining rogue of a hero and an intrepid heroine. The story line never slows down, as Nicola seems to land in one predicament after another mostly caused by The Gentleman. Though extreme, Exmoor comes across as 100% pure evil, making him the oppositey of the lead couple and the catalyst moving the plot forward. Fans of the sub-genre will find Candace Camp's latest tale quite enjoyable.
