    One thought on “Claimed

    1. ~ Becs ~

      Well, after a promising start, this one ultimately fell a little flat for me. I loved the thrill and excitement of the beginning - Rhoslyn our widowed and grieving heroine is captured by our handsome hero Talbot St Claire who she has been betrothed to as she rides out to marry in haste to another man of her grandfather's choosing and is then once again abducted by another man only to be rescued by Talbot. It was all very exciting and breathtaking BUT I kind of then expected a beautiful romance b [...]

      Three and a halfI've read a lot of stories with a strong paranormal twist this week so thought I'd shake things up with an historical romance and the beautiful cover of this one caught my eye. Plus I've seen this authors name crop up frequently so thought it high time I investigated her work.Set in Scotland during the war that brought such as William Wallace and Robert the Bruce to prominence we meet Rhoslyn a young widow who understands her position in the society she's been raised in. Shackled [...]

      Well I finished it. Although it was painful.My beef:The h was cruel, insensitive, selfish, immature, arrogant.There was little to NO romance.I cringed every time in the 2 love scenes when the female anatomy was referred to as her "sex." Example: "and she moved her sex along his body" I had NO clue why the H liked the h or stayed with her at all.The ending was NOT an ending it just stopped. The H & h NEVER said "I love you" to each other.I gave two stars only because I finished it.

      I really enjoyed Claimed by Tarah Scott. The book is very well written with a thorough desciption about the problems and confrontations going on at that time. I enjoyed the story and felt that the characters were very realistic. There wasn't a moment of respite and I needed to pay close attention not to miss a thing!. I really fell in love with Talbott. He is an amazing hero, sweet, strong, brave, loyal!!! Rhoslyn is also a very likeable character.This is the first book I have read by Tarah Scot [...]

      My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the book for more, visit Punya ReviewsIt must be my unlucky timing with medieval romances. I’ve read 3 of those in the past 3/4 months and all ended up being such downers. They had a good story going, with a great hero but it seemed to be the heroine of the story who killed all the fun for me. Tarah Scott’s Claimed is one of those cases. It started out well, but in a few chapters I was ready to kill the heroine, Rhosly [...]

    6. Andrea Way

      This book was quick and easy. I enjoyed the historical setting. My main annoyance was that for me the romance was lacking something. They seemed to come together and the end as more of a partnership than to lovers. But the story was well written, unfortunately just not for me on the romance side of things.

    7. Barbee

      Tarah Scott is a huge favorite author of mine. As I have heard members of my book group at Hamilton Booktrader say where she did a signing in 2013 they describe Ms. Scott as well written. Believe that description is right on the money! This book is absolutely brilliant and I highly recommend it as it is one you don't want to miss. I always hate they only offer five as the maximum amount of star as this spectacular book surely deserves more in my opinion! Lady Rhoslyn whom has had so much tragedy [...]

      Beautifully written, full of wit, passion, courage, and non-stop action. The story takes place in Medieval England as Lady Rhoslyn is commanded by Kind Edward to marry his knight Talbot St. Claire. She reluctantly leaves the monastery where she’s lived since the death of her child but has plans of her own rather than following her king’s commands. Her plans don’t truly come to fruition and ends up marrying Talbot much to her chagrin. While living with her new husband she realizes he’s no [...]

      If the hero must sometimes be the villain then who is the Claimed? Lady Rhoslyn is threatened with a forced marriage not only by her grandfather but also King Edward. She is a Scottish heiress and as if that isn’t enough for any man to covet, her beauty would still entice. Forced to run from Talbot St. Claire, King Edward’s chosen husband, Rhoslyn is put on a path of emotional and physical horrors. Tarah Scott I feel did an excellent job at creating obstacles for the hero and heroine to over [...]

      I should have heeded some of the other negative reviews at . This story is about Lady Rhoslyn and Sir Talbot St. Clair. She is a Scottish widow and he is an English knight. The English king orders her to marry him, and of course, they do. She doesn't expect to fall in love with him, but she does. The story really had potential but, unfortunately, that potential is not realized. I gave it two stars at because of the potential, and I gave it one star here because that's equivalent to two (I don't [...]

      Have to confess I would never have picked this book from a shelf in a bookstore, which would have been a very big mistake. But luckily we took this book for our April book of the month in a club I'm participating in, and so I got the most wonderful surprise in my life. Not only is the book packed with strong men, but also strong women who know what they want and get what they try to achieve.The story is set in the past, which makes it nice to read, and has a love story in it, between the action [...]

    12. Eniko

      I've been waiting with great anticipation for this book and Tarah Scott delivered yet again. Sir Talbot and Lady Rhoslyn's story evoked quite a few emotions while reading. I cried for Rhoslyn, the situation she found herself in, would send lesser souls running for the hills. I like her spunk, she made me laugh a few times. And Sir Talbot *sigh* . he is just charming, loyal to a fault. Despite the many obstacles thrown in the path of this obviously well-matched couple, mixed with intrigue and dec [...]

    13. C.M. Mitchell

      Somewhat Convoluted Overall, this was a good book with the potential to be a great book. I rated it with 3 stars because the writer appeared to dump a lot of characters into a single book to pull them out later when ready to develop them into sequels. It could have been done better.Another irritating part of the plot were the secrets that only two people could know but everyone in the entire castle, countryside and the whole of Scotland AND England seemed to know simply by a down cast look.

      Posted on Les Romantiques - Le forum du siteReviewed by RinouReview Copy from the PublisherClaimed is a novel first published in 2015 and republished in May this year, taking place in Scotland in the 13th century. We meet Lady Rhoslyn when she learns she must marry, at the behest of King Edward the 1st of England, one of his favorite English knights.I’ll begin by saying the political context is very present from the beginning, the author explains through the characters’ conversation the prob [...]

      Tarah Scott can certainly spin a seamlessly unfolding, rich in historical details Scottish vs.English tale, folks. I felt she did a great job with character development and capturing the political rivalries/uncertainties of this era. Unfortunately, she chose a path I do not like to travel in my romantic reads. (view spoiler)[ Having the heroine raped by the hero’s brother did not sit well with me. Neither did him remaining a constant threat. Then throw in the fact she found out she was pregnan [...]

      This wasn't the first time that I've read this book and it probably won't be the last time because, on the whole, I enjoyed reading this book. It is well-written, captivating and fast-paced. The latter is the problem though. Even though I really enjoyed reading this book, it is rather too fast-paced and sometimes I just wondered how much could happen in such a short time. It felt as if our hero was always running or rather riding somewhere to fight and then there was this intrigue and that and t [...]

    19. Carey

      3.5-4 Stars! I loved the first half of this book. The second half, not as much & the ending-not at all! This was a really good story & had me very interested! The story had a lot of parts I wasn't expecting & that was a refreshing change from most other romance books! I hate how the story just ends-I wanted to scream!! The story was about halfway rapped up but a lot was left, I'm guessing for a second book? So much was left open & unsaid! So many questions! Cliffhangers should be [...]

      *I voluntarily read a Review Copy of this book. All opinion stated are solely my own and no one elses*2.5 stars The blurb sounded appealing and I was really excited about reading this one but sadly, everything went downhill pretty quickly for me. I couldn't stand Lady Rhoslyn - she got on my nerves to the point, I just wanted her to give it a rest. She repeatedly insulted Talbot and disregarded his good deeds - suffice to say I didn't like her. There was no romance and the heroine's behaviour ju [...]

    21. D. Messing

      I love all things Scotland, especially in a historical setting and this more than delivered! I loved the setting, but it seemed a bit flat, and under detailed. There wasn't a tremendous amount of character development, but what there was fit into the story line. It had a nice pace for the majority of the story, though it did have a few spots where it dragged a bit. Overall it was a solid work, and a nice way to spend an afternoon after a long week. Thank you for the opportunity to read and revie [...]

    22. Pamela

      Read this a few years ago, but received an arc in exchange for an honest review, so re-read. This seems to be missing part of the ending, I don't recall this as the end, nor did I recall an actual sexual assault, which I would think I would remember. I had previously liked the book, and both of those things would have kept me from liking it. I actually went searching for further books by this author at the time, so I believe there had to have been a more definitive ending if I liked it. Otherwis [...]

    23. Rinou

      Le côté politique de l’époque est assez présent et prend souvent le pas sur la romance. De plus l’ambiance est telle qu’on l’imagine pour le Moyen-âge, c’est-à-dire assez violente, donc je ne recommande pas ce livre aux personnes sensibles. L’héroïne est chiante, on peut le dire, du genre à toujours chercher un truc à reprocher au héros, qui lui est vraiment super, gentil et patient envers elle, et compréhensif. Mais à lui tout seul il ne peut pas rattraper l’ensemble. [...]

    24. Tammy

      This was just an okay read for me. The story is fast paced with plenty of drama and suspense. I found the characters interesting but with no chemistry and the ending is not what I hoped for.

    25. Lynn Worton

      This is a wonderful historical romance. I loved it!Lady Rhoslyn is a character I liked a lot, but she also annoyed me at times. She is quite headstrong and determined, but she is very much a lady of her time. She tends to go kicking and fighting into a situation, but gets nowhere fast. I love her fiery Scottish temper, but she gets points knocked off for crumbling too quickly! Scots are not generally known for backing down easily. I know I'm from a different time, but I also really wanted to rea [...]

      Lots of twists and turnsI do relish a good medieval romance, and I’ve cut my teeth on some of the best authors in the subgenre. Ms Scott has written a believable tale of our hero and heroine’s situation common in 13th century England.Lady Rhoslyn finds she is to marry Lord Talbot St. Claire whose years of loyal service as a knight to King Edward has earned him Castle Glenbarr, Rhoslyn’s late husband’s property. The problem is the earl’s property is bequeathed to Rhoslyn. Talbot St. Cla [...]
