Nominated for Best All Around Historical


Kimberly Cates holds your heart gently in her hands, weaving this tale with threads of glimmering golden hope, dark violence and earth shattering passion. GATHER THE STARS is a story of such emotional magnitude that readers will need a hanky or two. It is truly a gifted writer who has the ability to make a reader feel so deeply. Bravo, Ms. Cates! -- Kathe Robin, Romantic Times


 Outrage at war's savagery underlies the pages of Gather the Stars, giving a moral depth to Cates's (Stealing Heaven) splendid tale. Set in the aftermath of the 1746 battle of Culloden, the story centers around the arrogant Rachel de Lacey, daughter of a British general. She has vowed to wed the bravest man in England and, accordingly, is affianced to Sir Dunstan Wells, the "hero" who brutally decimated the Scottish troops of Bonnie Prince Charlie. Kidnapped by Dunstan's nemesis, the "Glen Lyon," Rachel gradually learns that true bravery lies not in killing and plunder but in gentleness and love. This finely crafted historical romance is a gem. --Publisher's Weekly


Kimberly Cates' hallmark intense emotions and exquisite prose, fill the pages of this exemplary romance. An utterly beautiful story that shines with the message that love not only heals, but allows us to grow, and that as we give of ourselves we receive so much more. Brava, Ms. Cates: another masterpiece.
