Historic Romance Don't believe that coverI am at a loss to understand how anyone could give this book 5 stars And yet of the 30 ratings thus far most of whom are advanced readers every single one is 5 stars How can that be? I really need someone to explain this to meNow on to the book Does that look like a YA cover to you? No? That's what I thought That cover had me fooled This book is absolute YA Not because the heroine Cadha is 18 or 19 years old but because she acts like a petulant child all the while complaining when everyone treats her like one At one point an indignant Cadha says she's not some spoiled little rich girl who can't control her tantrums I didn't realize they had spoiled little rich girls in 14th century Holland but I stand corrected There's no uestion but that Cadha fits that descriptionCadha's baseline is anger The love of her life decides not to come home to her will never come home and what is her response? Not tears of sadness Nope It's anger at her family for not realizing how much he loves her Of course neither she nor her love ever thought to mention that love to her familyHer sister just returns from being kidnapped and what is Cadha's response? She snaps at her sister shocking herself with her own ferocity An old woman uestions her seafaring expertise? Cadha responds with a full on punch to the mouth with blood dripping no less Just to be clear that was an old woman's mouth There isn't a single chapter where the tide of her anger isn't rising I'm surprised she didn't spontaneously combust by the end of the bookNext on to the hero We are never told how old Valc is but he comes across as a bashful teen He has absolutely no personality None Well maybe milktoast Matters are not helped by the fact that he is disguised as a woman throughout much of the bookFinally on to the love story As mentioned Valc pretends to be a woman from the moment they meet Immediately upon finding out he's a man boy? they are thrown overboard and separated When they see each other again Cadha is instantly in love with him Right And this in the middle of her desperate search for her lost love Un huh I have to say this is the first time I have ever uestioned the reasoning of my fellow GR readers Are there really that many people who enjoy reading books consumed by teen angst? Where the heroine falls in and out of love willy nilly? And the writingit's not horrible but have they never read a truly gifted author? Does every author deserve 5 stars in their eyes? Is this the every child gets a trophy mentality?The book is clean no bad words that I recall and no intimate scenes just a few kisses ARC received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review A fun adventure If you love stories about treasure pirate high sea adventure and of course romance Cadha's Rogue written by RL Syme will surely please you This is the fifth story in the Highland Renegades series It’s a fun pirate adventure with a spunky heroine Ms Syme didn’t disappoint me Cadha de Witt waits for her first love Maas to return to her from a high sea voyage but she soon discovers that he did not returned and preferred to stay in Scotland Her heart is broken so she decides to find him at any costs Cadha is a brave strong and determine young woman who wants to find the man she loved since she had been a young girl She will hire the help of a protector to travel to Scotland but along the way her journey will be filled with twists and turns and the discovery of a new man Now her hearts is torn between two men the man she once loved Maas and this new protector Valc Which man will she choose?

I considered writing and saying sorry but I don't read historical but then realized that not only was that not fair to back out on the author like that but it made me feel like my word wouldn't be worth anything to anyone so I decided to read the bookI must say I felt like an idiot by the time I got through reading Other than having a lot of names that I couldn't pronounce this was a totally great story Also the action parts as I call them didn't drag on for pages The story ran smoothly throughout and did what all really good books should do it made me feel emotional I can't say I like having to explain to my husband why I'm crying but it wasn't the first time So if you are looking for a good book historical or not you definitely don't want to miss this adventure packed one This book was exciting and riveting The descriptions of historic vessels clothing and traveling companions is very precise The author R L Syme has done extensive research to make her books accurate and entertaining Valc is an honorable man that could easily inspire the love of a woman He is strong protective and resourceful Cadha's a difficult period of decision making and some heartbreak is expected in a young woman's journey This is the fifth book of the Highlander Series but can be a stand alone read This is the 5 book in the Highland Renegades series Cadha de Witt has been in love with a man that she has grown up with He takes to the sea and to Scotland and does not return Her family doesn't really know the strong feelings she thinks she has for himthey just tell her that he wants to start a new life This leads Cadha to want to go to him and find out what is going on She secretly hires Valc to take her But along the trip they run into pirates and other things that delays there trip along the way Also they are finding that they are having strong feelings for each other Kindly provided with and ARC via Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewThis is Cadha and Valc's storysorry peeps to suash your dreams there as the blurb eludes to Cadha looking for her love Maasbut it was worth the switch xx ;0 xxVery gripping read I found myself hooked on the story line from reading the blurbFunny passionate and all round thumbs up from me Well done RL and many thanks for this opportunity xLater peeps xx Cadha's RogueGreat book Very much enjoyed this one I laughed and I cried but then that is often what good books do to you Different take on romance for me anyway I wish there was historical information about Holland but this did have an interesting aside about the women's slave trade and pirates I like to learn a little something with my mindless happy ending
