Review
  • Frances “Fancy” Devers arrives at court with her two English cousins, Diana and Cynara, hoping to escape the gossip surrounding her first brief marriage, but when charming King Charles II beckons, Fancy courts scandal again by willingly becoming his new mistress. After playing the “King’s Fancy” for several months, the now pregnant Fancy wishes to gracefully retire, but Charles insists that she marry handsome Christopher “Kit” Trahern. Meanwhile, Diana has to choose between equally attractive twin brothers, and proud, willful Cynara decides that dark and dangerous Harry “Wickedness” Summers is her man. All three heroines, the great granddaughters of the infamous Skye O’Malley, find love, and a generous measure of sex, in the concluding volume in best-selling Small’s popular Skye’s Legacy series. Featuring the author’s well-known lush writing, boldly passionate heroines, and vividly detailed settings, this sensual historical will please not only Small’s devoted readers but also those who devour sexy romances by Susan Johnson and Thea Devine. -- John Charles (BookList, 02-01-2003, p978)
  • Rendezvous Review: Skye's Legacy. Fancy, forced to leave the only home she has ever known, arrives in England to meet her Grandmother and the family she has never met. She soon gets caught up in the excitement of going to court to be presented to the king. Fancy swore that she would never marry again. At court she catches the eye of the king and they are soon involved in a passionate and whirlwind of intense desire. An unplanned pregnancy causes her to have to leave the king's court. The King has already chosen a husband for her. Kit will obey his king, but here he was again getting ready to marry a woman that is carrying another man's child. Siren Diane is delightful--she has something about her that draws men to her soft, sensual and passionate nature. Even those who don't like her can't be angry with her. She enjoys listening to her grandmother talking about their history of the O'Malley. Now she must decide her future by choosing between the two men which happens to be twins. Cyn, a spoiled, confident woman who goes after what she wants and what she wants is the man they call "wicked." Before she knows it, Cyn is entangled in a whirlwind of court intrigue and passion. The conclusion of the Skye Legacy features three unusual and enticing heroines who are the epitome of Skye O'Malley. Their adventures and scintillating exploits are a fitting end to this wonderful series and the great ladies who preceded them. (Reviewed February 2003 by Wilhelmenia Kendall)
