I enjoyed Brooklynn Rivers style of writing. It is very light and easy, and I ended up reading this story very quickly. It is full of action and moves at a fast pace, so it never gets boring. Both Quentin and Skyler are very easy to like, both together as a pair, and as strong individuals
who are prepared to risk their lives for the people they love. They are a perfect match for each other and the romance element is very good.
There were a few things that bothered me in this book, and I can´t say if I am correct in my feelings, as I don´t know much about 17th Century England. The first thing is the name Skyler, espcially for a woman, it seems very modern, and I am not even sure it existed 400 years ago. The second thing is the language, especially that of Skyler. She is the daughter of a wealthy man, trained to be a proper lady. She is a very free spirit, and spends most of her time with her friend Josie the promiscuous barmaid, but still her language should reflect more that of a noble
woman than a swearing sailor. These are minor things though, and doesn´t really take away from an otherwise great romantic adventure.
I would absolutely recommend The Road to Dark Desire to fans of historical romance, who enjoy fair maidens and handsome highwaymen.
