Editorial Reviews

All About Romance - Blythe Barnhill
A DESERT ISLAND KEEPER! GRADE A! "I could hardly make myself put [it] down. You know how it is; you are *supposed* to eat and sleep now and then, but you'd much rather be reading! Practically perfect from start to finish, The Beloved One keeps you on the edge of your seat as the plot twists and turns, and leaves you with a tear in your eye. It has a wounded hero to die for, a heroine to admire, and a wonderful cast of secondary characters as well. Who could ask for anything more?"

"Once again, eldest brother Lucien, 'The Wicked One,' decides to play God in the life of another of his siblings, and the results are great. The second in the de Montforte series is an excellent edition with wonderful characters, especially the darling heroine who holds a special place in my heart."

I think I cried through out this whole book. It's of those good cries! DH keeps the theme of the series going w/the dynamic's between the brothers while adding strong secondary characters. It's almost a Cinderella story and I love a Cinderella story.

So when I read the synopsis and started reading the book I was pissed at Charles! How could he betray Juliet!?!? The evil man! But things arent always as they appear.......I absolutely just fell on love with Charles! Dont miss this exciting stories of another de Montforte brother!

Another great book that I loved from start to finish. Make sure you read the first book in this series first (The Wild One). Once again just the right amount of everything and so much different than the first....Well except for one factor the Machiavellian Duke, gotta love him. I am off to the third book that I am sure will be just as good as the first 2.. Happy reading

I read this book before the first in this series. It was so good, I immediately had to read the rest. Great read!

I love this take on Cinderella. Although there was no wicked step-mother, there were two horribly nasty sisters. Over the top nasty. They deserved everything they got and more. A delightful, relaxing, pleasurable read.

I read all four books in this series starting with book 1. It starts the series off introducing us to one of the 4 de Monteforte brothers, Garath. The theme of the series involves ploys of the eldest brother Lucien who successfully puts on the persona of being a mean, conniving, brother that threatens and manipulates his 3 younger brothers. Readers will discover the motivations behind his wicked behaviors as they go through the series. I enjoy the authors ability to provide readers with historical fiction with romance, intrigue and humor. After finishing this book I was eager to move on to the next.

You must read all 4 of these books.   The stories all tie together the characters.     Especially the last one, where Lucian finally gets his due...
