Book Excerpt: 
. . .nto the night with hateful words and bitter curses. Oh, was ever sin like mine? Oh, Self, Self! In ancient times, sirs, when a man had committed some great sin he lashed himself with cruel stripes, but I tell you no rod, no whip of many thongs ever stung or bit so sharp and deep as remorse—it is an abiding pain. Therefore I walk these highways preaching always forgiveness and forgetfulness of self, and so needs must I walk until my days be done, or until—I find her again." The stranger rose suddenly and so stood with bent head and very still, only his hands griped and wrung each other. Yet when he looked up his brow was serene and a smile was on his lips."

My second Farnol novel and I would say I'm becoming a fan. His books are very reminiscent of what I love about Georgette Heyer's novels but with a bit more grit, a darker underbelly to them.

another favorite, just love the storyline but its a heavy read with all the accents.

4.5 stars. Regency setting. I enjoy reading Regency books and I enjoyed reading this one through a man's perspective.

For many years, I have loved Barbara Cartland. Her books are so entertaining and sweet. I rated them all 4 Star because I could not remember everyone, BUT I can remember always wanting another just as soon as that one was over. Her books are simplistic, easy to read, FUN, romantic, full of histor...more

This is a regency comedy romance. It has a lot of the plot devices which I normally hate (e.g. fantastic coincidences and it's sentimental in places). However Jeffery Farnol obviously had his tongue in his cheek the whole time he was writing this so they made me laugh rather than annoying me. Act...more

It was a tad too long. Other than that I liked it very well.
