    1. Lady Catherine Milton, middle sister of the three Graces of Graydon, has no desire whatsoever to marry. Plagued by the effects of the curse that haunts her and her sisters, she wants nothing to do with love and would never risk falling in love with someone only to lose them. Cate’s view about marriage and love do not keep her out of the favor of the Tudor court, in fact, she is often found travelling with King Henry and his entourage. During one of her travelling excursions, Cate loses the tra [...]


    2. Bir Söze MahkumThe Three Graces Serisi 2Jennifer BlakeBir şey söyleyeyim ben bu tür kitapları seviyorum gerçekten tarihi aşk kitaplarınıKitabı iki üç gün önce bitirmiştim yorum yazmayı unutmuşumkızlarımızdan ikinci olanın hikayesiVe İskoç oğlumuzunOğlumuz onu gördüğü an etkileniyor fakat bir hayli zorlu bir genç ama gel görün ki kralın istekleri herseyin önündebir gece yan yana kalmak zorunda kalan gençlerin evlenmek zorunda olduğunu söylüyor ve kızımız [...]


    3. A book set in Henry VII England. Rivalry among kings and high lords. Females used for what they bring to a marriage and nothing else.This was a book in between a dry history book and a romance. And since I wanted to read a romance all the historical facts through me of a bit.I think a well researched author is a good author but they should also know what genre they write for.Ms Blake lost the romance in all descriptions of clothing, food and traditions.


    4. Tudor Dönemi okumayı eskisi kadar sevmiyorum.Ancak Graydon'ın Üç Güzel Laneti üçlemesinin ikinci kitabını genel anlamda beğendğimi söyleyebilirimÜç kız kardeşlerden Cate'in hikayesi daha güzel idi. Ancak sonlara doğru romanın döngüsünden ek memnun plmasamda ilk romandan daha başarılı buldumSerinin üçüncü romanını da merakla bekliyorum


    5. Loved this second installment in the Three Graces trilogy. Very well done historical romance set during the 1400's at Henry VII's court.


    6. More Balanced than His Majesty'sCompromising position or not, King Henry VII's ward or not, Lady Catherine Milton has accepted the word of Ross Dunbar, himself the son of a Scottish laird and current enforced guestof a sort the Tudor king. He swears his loyalty is to his own king and his obligation to his own people. He swears he has no wish to be commanded to take a Sassenach bride. He swears he shall tell King Henry VII that very thing when the inevitable summons comes. He did, after all, spen [...]


    7. Pretty goodI enjoyed reading this story. Blake is very good at writing a story with lots of factual historic background and giving you a different perspective. This is an easy read and the romance is done well.


    8. By Grace Possessed is book two in The Three Graces series by Jennifer Blake.Lady Catherine Milton is the middle sister of the famous cursed Three Graces of Graydon. Lady Catherine and her sisters Isabel and Marguerite are said to bear a curse in which any man who marries them without loving them will die soon after the betrothal victim of the curse.Her older sister Isabel is now happily married with a man who adores her, but Lady Catherine knows that the possibility of a love match for her and h [...]


    9. This was another great read by Jennifer Blake, part of a series of three, based upon three sisters, who may, or may not be the sources of a curse, and following on from By His Majesty's Grace. I received it through netgalley, and, boy, was I glad I did!Normally, romances with the curse theme going on don't work for me. They just come across as, well, cheesy, but I really like this one. For a start, the whole series is set at the start of the reign of Henry VII, a time of great political and soci [...]


    10. Cate and Ross are an interesting pair. I enjoyed the book immensely when the two of them were at the same place at the same time. Other portions of the book didn't seem to blend together as well for me when the two weren't together. Cate is the 2nd Grace of Graydon. She spends a night along with Scottsman Ross Dunbar due to her disliking being present during the 'kill' portion of a hunt. She's not aware that someone has set her up to be accosted or worse. Luckily, or unluckily depending on persp [...]


    11. 4-1/2 starsWhile I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series, By His Majesty's Grace, I enjoyed this book much better---and it's because rather than giving a dry recounting of the history that happened before the story started (the end of the War of the Roses that led to Henry VII's taking the throne of England), in this book, the history happens ON PAGE in the form of action and interaction and conflict for the characters, rather than just long paragraphs of dry history.But I couldn't qu [...]


    12. I liked this book so much more than By His Majesty's Grace. The story centers on Lady Cate Milton. She's one of the so-called Three Graces, a trio of sisters said to be cursed. Any man who tries to marry one of them for a reason other than love, is destined for death. Cate's older sister, Isabel, has managed a happy marriage, but Cate doesn't believe it's in the cards for her.That doesn't stop her from appreciating an arresting man like Dunbar. The sexy Scotsman saved her from a band of men who [...]

    14. I loved By His Majesty's Grace, the first book of the series. So I couldn't wait to read By Grace Possessed when I found it at NetGalley.Lady Catherine Milton is still haunted by the curse. If she doesn't marry by love, her fiance would die. It has worked for her the last few years, but King Henry doesn't believe in curses, and he commands her to marry Ross Dunbar, a Scottish son of an ornery borderland laird.Catherine doesn't want to marry, and she's nervous about her fiance's fate. And Dunbar [...]


    15. Après un premier tome pas totalement convainquant, nous découvrons la suite de la série Les Trois Grâces et quel bonheur ! Et pas seulement à cause du héros écossais enfin pas que. Nous retrouvons Jennifer Blake et sa plume particulière dans ce récit aussi riche en péripéties que le premier livre, mais sans ses défauts. Si dans l'histoire d'Isabel et Rand, les sentiments n'étaient pas mis en avant, ici ils ne le sont pas forcément plus, mais on voit de quelle façon les deux héros [...]


    16. I liked our heroine, Cate. That's probably the most positive thing I have to say about By Grace Possessed. I'm not really sure why I finished the book. I certainly didn't care about the characters. I wasn't interested in the plot. The villain is almost a caricature of a bad guy. He's so open and chatty about the illegal things he's attempting that I found the scenes to be more like bad farce than suspenseful.I believed our hero, Dunbar, to be a good man for the first half of the novel. Then he d [...]


    17. BY GRACE POSSESSED(THE THREE GRACES) by Jennifer Blake is a delicious historical romance. It is the story of Lady Catherine Milton,the middle sister and Scottish highlander Ross Dunbar,who is held at the King's court to kept his father in line."By Grace Possessed" is book 2 in The Three Graces Trilogy,but can be read as a stand alone. See "By His Majesty's Grace". Three Graces of Graydon are, Lady Isabel Milton,the eldest,Lady Catherine Milton, and Lady Marguerite Milton,the youngest. Together, [...]


    18. Maybe I'm just impatient, but I gave up on this book on page 126. I don't have time to waste on stories that don't move quickly enough. I was, literally, falling asleep as I was reading this book because it was so boring. This is a recap of everything that has happened, so far: Cate goes with the hunting party from the castle. Her horse is scared off from the rest of the hunting party by a boar. The horse takes her with it. This Scotsman named Ross kills the boar, and Cate and Ross spend the nig [...]


    19. Requested from NetGalley by MeOverall Rating 4.00Story Rating 4.00Character Rating 4.00NOTE: This is the 2nd book in the The Three Graces Trilogy and another great addition. I am enjoying this historical set in the time of Henry VII very much.What I Loved: Ross and Catherine were a very well matched couple. They both had strengths and weaknesses that balanced them out. I almost swooned when Ross rescued Catherine from the bandits near the beginning of the book. My swooning did not end there eith [...]


    20. This was an enjoyable read. I'll admit that I haven't read the first in the series yet (still on library's waiting list) and some things probably would have made a little more sense early on if I had, but it didn't really detract from my enjoyment of the story. This book does catch you up on the major things you need to know about the Three Graces and their "curse", though I'm hoping that book one does a better job of convincing readers that the curse is real (this one really just has the charac [...]


    21. The Tudor King issues Lady Catherine Milton a most unusual command: SEDUCE Scottish Loyalist Ross Dunbar. The son of an ornery borderland laird, Dunbar would make an advantageous match, but King Henry cannot force him to wed. So Cate must ensnare him A rush of courtly parties and passionate nights in Dunbar's embrace leaves Cate breathless and confused, She desires a proposal for the sake of propriety and politics, but she ling to b truly loved. Tortured loyalties are not hers alone-though Dunba [...]


    22. This was my second Jennifer Blake novel and I enjoyed it just as much as I did the first Three Graces novel. The love story between Cate and Ross was done really well I thought. It didn't seem to be too rushed, which really irks me in all types of genres, not just romance. The only thing that I could possibly complain about is that Blake would start explaining things about certain people like Elizabeth Woodville or someone else. I can understand why she did since not everyone might not be famili [...]


    23. This one is even better than the first book in the Three Graces series. From page 1 to the end, so much action was going on, I could barely catch my breath. Isabelle's middle sister Cate is caught between two men, Trilborn who wants her lands and dowries and Ross Dunbar of Scotland who has no mind to marry an English lady. Yet Cate and Ross are propelled by overwhelming desire into each other's arms. Several attempts to assassinate Ross should have put him off Cate but only makes him more determ [...]


    24. Reviewed for NetGalley:By Grace Possessed by Jennifer Blake is a true gem. IT is definitely a story I will not soon forget. Cate is stubborn and sassy for once a heroine I can admire. She is a woman who will stop at nothing to get what she wants, and she wants Ross. Ross is strong and determined; a man loyal to his country and family. It is not in his plans to marry someone like Cate, but he cannot deny the attraction. By Grace Possessed is a keeper. I look forward to reading Ms. Blake's next ma [...]


    25. Terrific bodice ripper set in 1486, in the court of Henry VII. Our heroine, Cate, stumbles into a bad situation and is rescued by a Scots nobleman, Ross Dunbar. The time they spend alone together ensures that they will be betrothed, which Cate is violently opposed to, as she plans never to marry. Their steamy romance takes place as the War of the Roses explodes around them. Great history and great romance - for 18 and up.


    26. This is my first Jennifer Blake book and I'm impressed. I like how she writes period as if you were there living it. I love how she includes real life events into the story. Though I found myself reading a lot of the real info because she intrigued me with the little snip bits she threw in. It's a sweet love story with honorable characters that you can't help but love.


    27. This was a fun read, just like the previous one in the trilogy. I like this author's style, and I like how she can write a historical romance without making it feel stuffy or over-done with historical details. I'm all about Tudor history, but once in a while it's fun to just read a lighthearted romance, and I'm happy to say that this book satisfied that craving.


    28. Isobel is joyfully married and off with Beresford. Now Cate is the focus. A dastardly Lord would love to have her lands and wealth but she is promised to a Scotsman by the canny King Henry. Will the Curse of the Graces imperil Ross Dunbar, or does he love Cate?
