NOT THAT YOU CAN'T FOLLOW THE WRITING BUT YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO WONDER HOW A CERTAIN CHARACTOR FITS IN THE STORY.(THIS IS A SERIES OF BOOKS ABOUT ONE FAMILY OF BROTHERS AND SISTERS AND ONE BOY RAISED WITH THE OTHERS). WELL WRITTEN-WITH MANY SMILES TO BE HAD BUT IF READING THESE BOOKS IN BED WITH A SPOUSE IN CLOSE PROXIMITY HAVE A PILLOW HANDY TO LAUGH INTO. HEROS AND HEROINES ARE PLAUSIBLE AND LIKABLE. STORY LINES WELL DEFINED. NOT UNLIKE STEPHANIE LAURENS CYNSTER SERIES--THESE ARE ALSO KEEPERS.

Not certain...

I almost put the book down. As much as I like helping others, she was obsessed with her charity and came across as a goody two shoes for at least half the book. She was annoying and very selfish towards someone she claimed to love in that she wouldn't compromise at all....
I almost put the book down. As much as I like helping others, she was obsessed with her charity and came across as a goody two shoes for at least half the book. She was annoying and very selfish towards someone she claimed to love in that she wouldn't compromise at all. Both flawed which made them complete but dragged a bit. A rake who wouldn't bed his wife knowing he could not get an annulment because she would be ruined? Did they ever have children of their own or just have their own personal orphanage?

    charming Regency romance

    In 1812, a desperate Alec MacLean, Viscount Hunterston, must immediately marry Lady Therese Frant to meet the terms of his grandfather¿s will and inherit the estate. However, instead of running off with Therese, something goes wrong and Alec abducts her cousin Julia, a pain in the butt cold-blooded American better known as the Frant dragon. <P>Alec realizes that Julia meets the bridal requirement of his deceased relative persuades her to marry him. She agrees in exchange for half the estate. Ads the newlyweds begin their marriage of convenience, Alec worries that his wife will cost them everything due to her need to help the downtrodden because the other stipulation in his grandfather¿s will deals with no scandals for a year for the devil¿s viscount. Adding to his woes is he now loves his bride. <P>THE ABDUCTION OF JULIA is a charming Regency romance due to the delectable fully developed charcaters. Julia and Alec make for fun reading as they skirmish with their love for one another, the interfering matchmaking of caring family members, friends, and servants, and the odious actions of one of his relatives. The ensemble cast shows that newcomer Karen Hawkins possesses much talent that will entice her audience to positively compare her to the starts of some of the sub-genre top authors. <P>Harriet Klausner
