    A great historical romance

    Rafael Saunders finds a note written by his fiancée Danielle Duval asking his friend Oliver Randall to come to her room tonight. Stunned Rafael arrives at Danielle¿s room to find a naked Oliver in bed with her. He like everyone else blames Danielle for the scandal though she swears she is innocent................ She remained in hiding for five years, but two weeks before going to America to marry her new fiancé businessman, Richard Clemens in Philadelphia, her beloved Aunt Flora coaxes Danielle to make an appearance amidst the ton. Rafael attends the same bash. He angrily asks why the betrayal, but she still insists she is innocent and that he betrayed her. Stunned Rafael hires Bow St. runner Joseph McPhee to learn the truth two weeks later, Joseph reports that Oliver hates Rafael, duped him, and that Danielle told the truth. He wounds Oliver in a duel, but Danielle has left for America. Rafael pursues the one woman whom he loves not knowing whether he can overcome the mistakes he perpetrated on his beloved................... The circumstantial evidence that condemned his beloved five years ago haunts Rafael, as he realizes how much he allowed Oliver to dupe him, which in turn makes him a less than sympathetic protagonist, but perfect for this deep Regency romance. Thus the audience empathizes with the unfairly scarlet lettered female who hopefully will find happiness in America. Oliver¿s plan seems weak as he destroys two lives without a blink, but also assumes somehow he will win Danielle¿s hand. Still historical romance fans will appreciate this fine tale starring a mortified lead male trying to overcome all the mistakes he caused when he failed to follow up on his beloved¿s crying pain of innocence....

    The Necklace Series

    I have read the whole Necklace series. All three books were very good. I highly recommend all three.

    Loved it!

    I absolutely loved this entire series! The characters were great and I do have to admit I did find myself rolling my eyes in one particular section of the book as to "whodunit" in terms of trying to kill some of the main characters, but all in all I highly recommend the book and entire series.

    Good Characters - Not the Best Plot

    The characters in this book were outstanding. I really enjoyed both Danielle and Rafe they seemed to jump off the pages. However, the plot wasn't the best I've ever read. The threads didn't really link themselves together too well. There were several subplots but hardly anything intermixed. Lastly, the 'whodunit' or 'someone wants them dead' part did not develop until almost the end. Because of this lack of influence, the ending result seemed far-fetched and not very believable. Still, I gave this book three stars because the main characters were outstanding.

    Captivating!

    Smoothly done. A great historical romance after Pride and Prejudice. You can actually feel the characters come in live and feels what they felt. The complexity of the characters, fragile but also strong in the same time blend together beautifully. You can't wait to turn the next page till you reached the last chapter and never guess rafe reaction when he discovered all the lies one by one in elegant ways. include some historical facts too.
