Book Description

March 1 1997 Pocket Books Romance
New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard captivates readers in the deeply romantic tale of a contemporary woman who unravels an extraordinary mystery from the past . . . by living it.

A scholar specializing in ancient manuscripts, Grace St. John never imagined that a cache of old documents she discovered was the missing link to a lost Celtic treasure. But as soon as she deciphers the legend of the Knights of the Templar -- long fabled to hold the key to unlimited power -- Grace becomes the target of a ruthless killer bent on abusing the coveted force. Determined to stop him, Grace needs the help of a warrior bound by duty to uphold the Templar's secret for all eternity. But to find him -- and to save herself -- she must go back in time . . . to fourteenth-century Scotland . . . and to Black Niall, a fierce man of dark fury and raw, unbridled desire. . . .

Product Description

From Amazon

All of Linda Howard's novels are wonderful but this exceptional time-travel is her first foray into paranormal romance--and it's not to be missed. Grace St. John, a scholar, unwittingly discovers the Knights of Templar's secret treasure. Suddenly, her life is upturned when she spies her boss murdering her husband and brother. With no reason to live, except to extract vengeance, Grace becomes a fugitive of the law as she attempts to find an explanation for this horrible act. Grace simultaneously translates 14th century medieval documents written by Black Niall. This embittered knight reaches into Grace's subconscious and the two begin to share dreams 700 years apart.


"Linda Howard offers a romantic time-travel thriller with a fascinating premise . . . gripping passages and steamy sex." -- Publishers Weekly

5.0 out of 5 stars A HUGELY ENTERTAINING BOOK... Aug. 24 2010
By Lawyeraau TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first book I have ever read by this author, and it will not be the last. I really enjoyed this book, as it worked successfully on many levels. Moreover, it was surprisingly well-written. It is a book that crosses many genres: mystery, suspense, historical fiction, and time travel. These are all genres that I enjoy reading, so it immediately caught my attention. It even has a dollop of romance for those who enjoy that genre, as well.

When the shy and plump Grace St. John, a translator of ancient languages, is confronted with an earth shattering scenario that defies her imagination and rocks her world, life for her will never again be the same. Fleeing those who wish to do her harm and seeking to unravel the mystery contained in some ancient documents in her possession having to do with the Knights Templar, Grace will undergo some profound life changes. As Grace continues her translation of the documents while on the run, a portrait of an esteemed fourteenth century warrior of the Knights Templar, Niall of Scotland, emerges, and past and present begin to merge. Grace soon realizes that only through the past, can her present ever be righted.

This is a book that is chock full of adventure, as well as many intriguing twists and turns. Replete with historical detail, as well as a great plot, this is a book that will certainly capture the reader's imagination. It certainly captured mine, and I was riveted to its pages until the very end. This is a wonderfully entertaining book by a masterful storyteller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh mercy.... Aug. 3 2003
By Jojo
Format:Mass Market Paperback
this is one of those great love stories that I hate to see end. Well, I call it a love story, but actually the story itself is more about the good vs. evil plot. Once again, Linda Howard has written an excellent story. It has most everything I love in a romance novel - suspence, non-stop action/adventure, a sweet but very intelligent heroine (who learns all about taking care of herself), a tall, dark, gorgeous, sexy as **** hero, a great storyline, very hot love scenes; there is also an unexpected paranormal element (sp?) that I've never read in LH books, but that I really enjoyed. (Man, to have dreams like THAT! lol) I really liked the way LH let me come to really know the characters... I knew just exactly how Grace St. John felt & why she felt that way; I knew about her life & her feelings for those around her. It was the same with Niall of Scotland - I could feel his anger, his pain, his aloneness, his feelings for Grace... oh man (big sigh).
The romance in this book bloomed slowly, well over the course of the book - from 7 centuries apart.... no rush to fall in bed & fall in love based on what happened in bed. I really enjoyed that. (Rushed feelings about love after falling in lust tend to make me roll my eyes.) I really appreciated the fact that Grace didn't just forget about what her husband had meant to her... her love for him was not diminshed by her feelings for Niall.
LH also wrote about a number of secondary characters that I could really get to know & appreciate also... they all had an integral part of the story.
If you like action/adventure in your romances - this one should certainly trip-your-trigger; it kept moving, threw in lots of unexpected surprises, & really kept me enthralled. A definite recommend.

All right. Why, you ask me, have I had to buy more than one copy of this book? Because I keep loaning my copies to friends who love it so much that they don't always return it. And why, you ask me, do I continue to pick it up and read it through cover-to-cover so many times? Well, the easiest way would be simply to tell you to read it yourself but first, I'm going to give you a little idea why this book is so worth the effort.
The heroine, Grace St. John, is a real woman! No, not flesh and blood, but so much like you and me that the fact she is a fictional character doesn't matter. She isn't especially beautiful or model-thin or anywhere close to perfect. What she is, however, is intellegent and gutsy and basically willing to do whatever is necessary to exact vengeance on the man who murdered her family. Grace didn't fall immediately into the hero's lap the moment things got hard. She used her wits to stay ahead of the bad guys and works to reveal the secret that those bad guys are willing to kill for.
Black Niall is my "dream man", pardon the pun. (You will understand when you read this book) He dark and sexy; a lusty fellow that's just a bit rough around the edges but as Linda spins his story around you, you begin to see beneath his tough ex-monk exterior (yes, ex-monk) to his very soul. You feel for him when he is forced to allow his brother-monks die in the service of a God whom Niall feels has deserted them. His anger at the injustice doesn't prevent him from making a vow of service to protect a secret 'treasure' even as his other monkish vows are revoked. . . including chastity.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I've ever read! June 27 2003
By Brenda
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As a long-time fan of Linda Howard and an avid reader, I consider "Son of the Morning" to be one of the best books I've ever read. In fact, I've reread the book numerous times for the simple pleasure of enjoying a truly great story.
"Son of the Morning" crosses a number of romance genre boundary lines in a single story to give the reader a little of everything. The time-travel segments are utterly unique (as well as potentially hazardous <g>). The suspense is edge-of-your-seat category typical of Ms. Howard work. The paranormal elements (dare I say, character?) are surprising and unlike any I've read. The historic settings and events are well researched, highly informative and richly illustrated. It's here we meet the main male protagonist, Black Niall, a larger-than-life character and former Templar who's not your typical hero.
In the contemporary setting, Ms. Howard's main female character, Grace St. John, a rather unassuming academic, must run from and continuously evade the bad guys while learning how to live "on the lam" after her husband and brother are murdered. Some of her best lessons come from a street-wise bad boy and a former prostitute who teach her how to "disappear", how to get a false ID and great tips on how to protect herself from attackers (I took notes here).
Howard's characters are so richly characterized they live in your mind and become real. I found myself rooting for the good guys, hoping the bad guys meet a very ugly end, and was surprised by a few. And I'm very hard to surprise. The romance between the main protagonists grabs your heart and you pray they'll find a way to be together forever. And finally, you just wish the book didn't have to end...or there would be a true sequel.
