    1. Candice Proctor wrote a limited number of historical romances that were first published in the late 1990s or a little later. A sister of Penelope Williamson (THE OUTSIDER), she did a good job with writing about the 'dark hero'. Someone who had secrets and who, initially, may not be the easiest person to like. My favorite stories of hers are NIGHT IN EDEN with SEPTEMBER MOON a close second. I was hoping this book would be on par with those. Gabrielle Antoine, a twenty-year-old, had lived at a par [...]

    2. Wow! Penelope Williamson is one of my favorite authorse writes with such depth and emotion.r shying away from pain, hardship, or "life". I didn't think I'd ever read anything that could match herbut guess whatSHE HAS A SISTER! Candice Proctor can write every bit as well as her sister and I have loved both books that I've read by her. Night in Eden is one of my all time favorites, so The Bequest didn't quite live up to the brilliance of her debut novel, but it sure came close! The Bequest is set [...]

    3. Historical RomanceAuthor also writes under the names C.S Harris (Sebastian St. Cyr historical mystery series) and C.S. Graham (thrillers)Being a huge fan of the superbly written and engrossing St. Cyr series, I was curious to read more of this author while I wait for #6 to be released (Where Shadows Dance in March 2011).This historical romance (pub. 1998) is very well written, solid and interesting plotlines and characters, and an enjoyable book.Set in a rough and tumble Colorado mining town in [...]

    4. One of the things I liked most about this book was the characters. They were always honest with each other. They shared their pasts, they talked about things, they understood and accepted each other as they were. I really liked that. Fear and pain kept them from committing throughout the book not misunderstandings.This isn't a comfortable book to read. It's set in a whorehouse and is filled with violent, dirty images. The author writes so well you can see and smell the countryside and feel the m [...]

    5. I read it because of "Midnight In Eden", which I devoured in two days. The Bequest was good, but not as compelling for me to finish. In fact, I put it down for a week and read another book. The story drags for about 1/3 of the story. I wanted to skip to the end, which I sometimes do when the plot is not holding my interest. Once the H/h become an item it does pick up. I liked Jordan more than I liked Gabrielle. Overall a good story, but not as good as her first book.

    6. Era partito bene, l’idea era buona, ma giunta ormai a metà mi rendo conto che Candice è troppo lenta per i miei gusti. La trama langue. Il personaggio maschile più importante è molto ben caratterizzato e intrigante, ma lei è solo un’ombra pallida che vaga nel contesto. Mi arrendo.

    7. I am struggling to find the words to describe this novel. This is the fifth CP novel I've devoured within the last month, all of which I have loved, and would re-read, up until now. The Bequest is my least favorite so far, mainly because of the setting (it takes place in a brothel which was…let's face it, really weird and uncomfortable) and because of some severely odd and inconceivable moments within. At this point, one may be wondering why I so generously gave this book four stars. One reaso [...]

    8. Unusual Western Historical Worth the Read!Set in Central City, Colorado in 1874, this story of the post Civil War west makes for a most interesting romance. Proctor writes well and the story will hold your attention. I do recommend it.Gabrielle Antoine has been raised in a New Orleans convent, believing she is an orphan. Her dream is to some day have a school for girls. Then one day, as a young woman, she finds out her mother only recently died and has left her a house and a business in Colorado [...]

In the letter it states that there is a partner who wishes to sell and send her the proceeds. She decides to go to Colorado and see to things herself. Jordan (H) was hoping that his friends daughter would just agree to the sell , her mother never wanted Gabrielle to know that her mother was a whore and that t [...]

    10. I love HRs where the lead characters are not easily tamed and have lots of misunderstanding between them. This book severely lacks those qualities. I don't expect a girl who is raised all her life in a strict vicinity of a convent to forget her vows overnight after meeting the hero and starts lusting after him. However, loved the writer but she needs to be little less descriptive.

    11. Strictly mediocre. Good romance novels take the cliche and own it - this one just paid a dollar to rent it for a while. And if you're going to quote the Song of Solomon at me, you'd damn well better do it in a better written setting - this turns poetry into schmaltz.

    12. I really liked the book. It was one of those books that dared to address a sensitive human issue of prostitution and it gently and yet boldly brought it up to a human factor not a judgmental factor. It is more than a love story but a growing up and facing life story. Loved it!

    13. Innocent convent reared heroine ends us running her mother's fancy house and gets the hero. The near-rape is a frightenng scene!

    14. Not as epic as her other books plus the whole whorehouse setting was just kind of weird. I don't know how else to discribe it.
