One of the best books I've read in a while May 22 2012
By Susanna - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love Karen Hawkins; I pre-ordered this book back in December, so it was with great delight I saw it delivered to my Kindle this morning at 12:30 a.m. Yes, I began reading immediately. Even though I had deadlines at work today, I managed to finish it this evening. It's that good.

This is the final book in the Hurst Amulet series, and a worthy entry. In the previous books, Michael Hurst, famed explorer and archaeologist, was imprisoned and needed rescue by his siblings. They each found love as they helped gain his release, along the way discovering their piece of the puzzle leading to the location of the long lost Hurst Amulet. Michael's abiding obsession was locating the Amulet, and that is the background to this final entry, Michael's romance. He has for more than four years benefited from the calm efficiency of his personal assistant, Jane Smythe-Haughton. She has become so embedded in his life, and he is so absorbed in his work, that he fails to see her as a woman or recognize his need for her. She, for her part, senses he is the center of her life but also that if their platonic working relationship shifts to something more sensual, it will spell the end of their association. So they soldier on.

The trail to the Hurst Amulet finally leads them to a most unexpected place, at least in Jane's view. It is a place where she has a history, one that startles Michael into finally realizing that maybe there is more to his assistant than her unerring ability to provide him with his morning bacon and favorite pillow. This very charming love story moves at a fast clip, with snappy dialogue and engaging characters. Both Michael and Jane are people you'd want to know, and you are drawn into their story from the first page. Karen Hawkins does a wonderful job of interweaving character, plot and romance, so you feel you know these people and this place, and you want the HEA almost as much as Michael and Jane do.

This story never bogs down. I was shocked when I realized I was nearly done. Since I was reading it in eBook format, I had to check to make sure it was as long as usual - yes, 400 pages. Amazing. I highly recommend this book. And you don't have to have read the rest of the Hurst Amulet series to thoroughly enjoy this one. Although why wouldn't you read the rest too?

Romance! Hurmor! Suspense! May 22 2012
By Bookreader - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
The last book of the Hurst Amulet series is finally here!

Karen Hawkins has outdone herself with this one...the quiet unassuming super-efficient secretary is not quite what she seems...and is tied to Michael Hurst in far more ways than he dreamed. And poor Michael...what he has to put up with! heh! heh!

Where does she get this stuff? Awesome! Lots of humor, lots of Romance, lots of mystery.

I won't spoil the plot for you, but Karen Hawkins' has written a fantastic ending to the series; all in all, a fabulous read.

Five out of Five stars!

A sexy mind July 28 2012
By MovieLover - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Story takes place 1822, mostly in Scottland.

Hero Michael is a big/tall Egyptologist. Heroine Jane is a small/petite "crack crypto-
grapher" & linguist who's been his assistant x 4 yrs. She's secretely in love with him.
He's arrogant, rude & has poor people skills. Except for instances when he choses to
be charming.

He's not attracted to her as a woman. Prefers buxom women. He has a one-track
mind of finding the rare missing Hurst Amulet, once owned by his family. Over time,
he begins to question his priorities & slowly starts to fall for her. Especially her
sexy mind & uniqueness. She shields her personal life, but he's always intrigued by
a mystery.

This is a witty, page-turner, HR adventure. Michael is a bit of a self-absorbed jerk
at start, but we slowly see his other layers. She is serene, but outspoken by nature.
They have great chemistry. The sex scenes are mild, but the romance is the thing.

A lighthearted and intriguing story of two adventurers who discover each other June 18 2012
By Jenel - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Michael Hurst is a famous explorer, chasing mysteries around the globe. When he discovers that his no-nonsense assistant Jane is hiding a mysterious past of her own, he's intrigued. From Scottish princess to lowly assistant? He has to know the truth! As with any other hunt he's been on, he will not rest until he finds the answers.

Jane is well aware of Michael's innumerable charms. The thing is, he's never turned those charms on her before, so she's never had to try to resist him. But once he discovers the truth of her past, will he lose interest, as she's seen him do so many times before?

The Taming of a Scottish Princess is a fun, fast-paced, sweetly romantic story with a nice amount of steam to enhance the sweetness. I really enjoyed it!

Good bye dear friends May 30 2012

Someone once said that the true test of a good book is that when you finish it, you miss the characters. I will miss the Hurst family, but happily, I bought hard copies of the series and I can visit any time I want. I was so happy that they finally found the amulet and this woman Michael had complained about in previous books (Of course!) turned out to be the love of his life. My only complaint was that as an ending, I wish all the Hurst could have come together. But, Karen Hawkins is a great writer, who knows, they could show up again some day! Loved the book, and like I said, I will miss the series!
