This is an amusing historical romantic suspense

In 1831 Lord Julian Monroe returns to Ravenscar, England after three years away. He left the country after he found his wife Lily dead from a bullet wound. His former brother-in-law Richard Langworth holds him culpable for his sister's death and plans to enact revenge...
In 1831 Lord Julian Monroe returns to Ravenscar, England after three years away. He left the country after he found his wife Lily dead from a bullet wound. His former brother-in-law Richard Langworth holds him culpable for his sister's death and plans to enact revenge on Julian.

His mother Lady Corrine, ecstatic that her son has finally come home, wants her son to remarry, but he has no interest in a second wife. Her choice is Miss Sophie Wilkie, niece of her friend Miss Roxanne Radcliffe. Reluctantly he agrees to escort Miss Sophie while his nephew Lord Devlin the self-anointed vampire finds himself attracted to Miss Roxanne. As the pair of couples falls in love on the road from London to Ravenscar; Richard dangerously raises the past leading to Julian learning why he is called the Prince of Ravenscar.

This is an amusing historical romantic suspense starring four strong independent characters. The course to true love is straighter than the Bonneville Salt Flats as there are no twists of consequence, yet the protagonists and the antagonist make for a fun journey. Filled with tension and jocularity especially the witty exchanges between the aunt and the nephew, readers will enjoy the couples on the road and at Ravenscar in Catherine Coulter's family affair.

Ok

Silly and predictable. Vampires? Where did that come from and what did it have to do with plot development? Maybe she's seen too many recent movies. Not what a long time reader would expect.

    Good Foray Into Historical Fiction by Coulter

    While historical fiction is not normally my cup of tea, I found this book to be enjoyable. The story is about a son of a Duke who lost his wife when she was mysteriously shot, leaves for three years to mourn his loss, and then comes back and is able to fine love again. In the midst of finding new love the hero, Julian, must deal with the his vengeful ex-brother-in-law who blames Julian for the death of his sister. The plot moves along nicely with good character development. I especially appreciated the abundant use of authentic old english words, as it added nicely to the story. The only reason I gave the 4/5 star rating is that the ending was highly predictable from the moment the characters were introduced. All in all, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that is a fan of the genre.
