    I started this series with the first free book and ending up hav

    I started this series with the first free book and ending up having to buy the entire series. After I read one, I had to find out what happened next. Very engaging characters and entertaining. I especially like the tidbits which gave a little insight to what the main characters from the other books were up to. The books can be read stand alone, however I enjoyed the slight connections made amongst them.

    more from this reviewer

    Starts off with potential, ends in disappointment.

    Let me start by saying this is the first, and only of the series I have read, but like most romance series, it can be read as a stand alone, so it doesn't put me off.
    The start is good, we are introduced to the wicked Rand, who is immediately told that his best friend, his fiance, Ros Fenster will be leaving him at the altar to go to the New World. Realizing he is upset, (Rand had been hoping for a distant relationship in a wife, so as to keep his wicked ways) She offers a solution; marry Helena Fenster, Ros' twin sister.
    The prim and proper Helena is terrified that her brief dalliance with William, someone she considered a marriage prospect, has landed her with child. They come to a decision; Rand needs to be married and start having children in order to please his grandfather, and he doesn't care who fathered the child.
    The story seems interesting up to this point, but truly, it starts to get boring fast. Rand seems more into sex than anything else, he gambles on everything, and is often drunk. Helena is in constant distress, and immediately tries to do the everything she promised him she wouldn't when they made their arrangement; try to reform him and fall in love.
    It wouldn't have been so bad, if the last few chapters didn't seem as though the author herself had come to dislike the story, with very brief details of what could have been extremely riveting. Helena's child is even born within 2-3 sentences and given little thought thereafter. The threat that loomed in Rand's grandfather was also dealt with in as swift a manner.
    All in all, this book might have been the one bad apple of the series, though it makes me very reluctant to try the other books, based on the stories of Ros, Miranda, Hero, Valentine and Juliet, Fensters' all.

    The best of the series so far. A previous reviewer in commentin

    The best of the series so far. A previous reviewer in commenting on Rand's "bastards" didn't read the whole book. This book has more romance, than the others in the series, more sex which you usually get in Historical Romances. This had more twists, turns, suspense than the others combined. The author gave me a lot of surprises so I recommend this book. (ljb)

    And not to mention.......

    The earl has 8 basterds , and i do not think he should have married anyone because of it and to bring helena in this type of story. He could have brought one of his basterd son in to be his heir. Helena do es not need someone to love her when he just thinks having bastereds everywhere is ok and he thinks lt should be fine to let helena know. Right then and there i would have ask for a devorce right in front of his grandfather or wish i had all girls. He has 8 heirs as for as im concerned. Hes a dick head.
