Rory A Very Charming Hero

Rory Forbes actually fit the definition of a hero. And he was so good at it. He was just so sexy, and handsome and loyal to those he cared about. Can't get much better than him. A wonderful, wonderful book.

I just LOVED it.

This is the type of book that isn't easy to put down once you start reading it. It was so intertaining, so 'on the edge of your seat' and also romantic. Ms. Potter is no MADELINE HUNTER when it comes to love scenes, but they were sweet nonetheless, if evasive.

Rare Perfection...

I'm not easily impressed but I found this novel to be outstanding!!! Rory Forbes was fantastic, handsomely portrayed, and I think even the Duke of Cumberland was charmed by him. Bethia was a gem, although she and Jenna (The Diamond King) are almost identical in personality.


This is one of those rare books you hate to put down; it was SO interesting. Just an outstanding plot based on actual events in history, and absolutely wonderful characters. I thought Rory was magnificent.


His father and his older brother thought he was a wastrel. His father openly hated him for walking away from the wholesale slaughter of innocent women and children at Culloden. However, not long afterward his brother trips and dies on his own blade and a low lying tree branch kills his father. Rory Forbes becomes the Marquis of Braemoor, a position he does not want.Cumberland forces Bethia MacDonnell to marry Rory, who she feels is pathetic. He dresses like a wimp and she heard he cowardly fled the battlefield even if he fought for her enemy. She needs the help of the brave Black Knave to rescue her brother held hostage by Cumberland. The Black Knave has saved numerous Jacobites from the wrath of the victors sending them to safety in France. As Rory and Bethia find reasons to distrust and loathe one another, they still fall in love. However, she needs a champion not a loser like Rory, even if at times he seems so heroic.THE BLACK KNAVE is a retelling of the classic Scarlet Pimpernel that makes Patricia Potter either a raving lunatic or an intrepid, confident author. After reading the historical romance, readers will realize that the awesome author pulls off a coup as she freshens up both the Pimpernel premise and the overwritten post-Culloden novel. Rory and Bethia are a wonderful couple who fall in love amidst the ruins of war and its aftermath. The story line is action packed and never allows the reader to sit back as Ms. Potter provides her audience with a thriller.Harriet Klausner
