    1. Cora lives with her ill father As a woman from the lower classes her days are spent working as a farm labourer for a pittance But in order to make enough money to buy the medicine her father so desperately needs she disguises herself as a man and spends her nights as a highwayman robbing the wealthy Then she robs Jack and his half brother Rupert one night Relieved of their purses and pride, they enter into a wager to catch the highwayman and deliver her to magistrate But upon cornering her, Jack [...]

    2. By the looks of it, The Highwayman s Daughter has all the ingredients one would need to make an exciting romantic romp a resourceful highwaywoman heroine, a handsome, noble hero, a dastardly villain and a well drawn cast of supporting characters to contribute colour to the story But somehow, the novel taken as a whole turns out to be somewhat less than its constituent parts, and never really delivers in terms of either excitement or romance.Cora Mardell lives with her father, Ned, a former gentl [...]

    3. PERFECT romantic escapism Sometimes you want to read something intellectual and urbane, which will spark deep literary discussion Then sometimes you just want to escape from the 21st century of hustle and bustle and hi tech lifestyles What better place to escape to than 18th century England when men were, rich, good looking hunks and women were Highwaywomen Yep, take this with a pinch of salt and your tongue lodged firmly in your cheek and enjoy it for exactly what it is, pure romantic historica [...]

    4. Completely and utterly eye rollingly unnecessarily complicated Yet again we see an original plot with a plenty of RomCom potential go down the drain, being pulled under by obsessively repetitive thoughts that will make you want to bang your head against a wall, multiple gag inducing scenes, and moments where readers, if you re like myself, will stare slack jawed before exclaiming, HOW ARE YOU THIS STUPID You could quite literally fill 3 chapters of Cora pining for the life she knew she d never h [...]

    5. This is the story of a peasant girl who robs stagecoaches to pay for her sick father s medication, and the nobleman who vows to bring her to justice Along the way, he learns that there s an entire spectrum of women between nobility and whores, and his mind boggles.The story opens as Cora robs Jack s coach at gunpoint Her mask along with the fact that she s robbing a coach leads people to think that she s a young boy because in Romancelandia, all full grown women resemble young boys once they don [...]

    6. This was a super fun historical romp I love me some highway women bandit ladies.Cora is a such a lady She holds up the rich folks carriages and takes their fancy baubles to buy her ailing father some medicine But of course, it s only a matter of time before she gets caught and back then, robbery was a hanging offenseIt s all going to come down to who gets to her first Jack, who figures out who she really is and knows about her than she does you ll have to read the book to figure that out and ha [...]

    7. I enjoyed reading about the swashbuckling highwayman s daughter, a bold but vulnerable heroine, and an earl s son, an intelligent, considerate hero, who expects to have his purse stolen when she holds him up on Hounslow Heath.The shocking event in the prologue takes place in 1749 Its repercussions, in 1768, held my interest throughout the story, and so did the cast of good and bad characters.At first, I queried Henrietta Gyland s choice of Cora for her heroine s first name, which seemed unsuitab [...]

    8. I thoroughly enjoyed this fast paced historical with a good dash of humor threaded all the way through the story Cora becomes a highwaywoman only to pay for her sick father s medicine but when she holds up Jack s coach is when the trouble really starts Jack and his odious cousin both realize she s a woman and make a bet to see who can track her down first both for very different reasons The setting drew me in and the story moved at a good pace as it always does with this author s work This is a [...]

    9. So I read this on audiobook and whilst it was a good book to read when I was busy crocheting It dragged in some parts and there were one to may revelations that made it hard to keep up with what was going on and at point got to the ridiculous stage However that being said it did keep e entertained and my mid off my aching fingers as I worked The characters were diverse and I enjoyed the narrator s voice.

It was on my bucket list to read one novel in one day, and it just so happened that I chose the perfect novel to do so with I loved it the story, the settings, the characters, the themes It was interesting and exciting, with drama and lust, and ended in a way that made my heart happy Would recommend

This is a fabulous book, the story takes you back to the times of Highwaymen, yet this one is a woman As you read along you may think at some points in the story that you know what is going to happen next, but the author, Henriette Gyland throws some nice little surprises into the mix, which just make the story even better than you imagined I am definitely feeling the loss of having finished this book Loved it, loved it, loved it 5 stars guaranteed

    14. Tremendo.Scrittura pessima, personaggi mediocri, trama a tratti anche interessante ma, in definitiva, deludente per , dopotutto, anche vero che gli ultimi due punti sono legati strettamente al primo se brutto lo stile, difficilmente il resto viene fuori decentemente A pagina 70 i due protagonisti un lui mieloso x una lei irritante erano gi follemente innamorati e pronti a gettarsi nelle braccia l uno dell altra Oh, e se si esclude la rapina che li fa incontrare, nella quale lei il brigante e lui [...]

    17. The moment I saw this book cover on Choc lit s website back in Decemeber I knew I wanted to read this book It was well worth the wait.Cora is a cross between a Barbara Cartland heroine and Angelina Jolie s Lara Croft She certainly can stand her own in a time when women were treated like chattel The romantic lead in the story, Jack, refers to her as Nemesis I loved that because he recognizes her as his equal and not a conquest There is a lot of electricity between them and a few sparks.Henriette [...]

I don t usually read historical fiction, but the cover of this book was just too gorgeous to resist The highwayman s daughter captured my heart from the cover alone, so it s no surprise she also captured Jack s heart despite the fact she is holding up his carriage, masked and dressed as a gentleman of the road and threatening him with a pistol.What follows is Jack s attempt to pursue the highwayman s daughter, firstly to win a bet against his cousin, Rupert, and to turn her over to the magistrat [...]

    22. This is the first historical I ve read by Henri Gyland It was a galloping adventure that never flagged I really enjoyed it Jack is a really charming hero and Cora manages to be sparky without being annoying sometimes feisty heroines can come across as just awkward and annoying The fact that they were so well matched was refreshing I loved the way Cora managed to wrong foot Jack so many times Henri s books are usually quite dark This one is not as dark as The Elephant Girl or Up Close, but it s s [...]
