Editorial Reviews

Romantic Times - Kathe Robin
A conflict, supported by an alpha hero and strong-willed heroine and entangled with a mystery, turns Jewel's tale into a delightful battle-of-wills romance, tinged with suspense. Jewel handles complex plotting with ease and creates a compelling story and characters that captivate.
All About Romance - Rachel Potter
The Spare is the story of a Regency house party, but with enough twists to make it unlike any other romance I've read. The suspense sub-plot was tightly drawn and integral to the story itself.

I loved this book, except for the ending, too rushed. Did Olivia have trouble making love again, after she regained her memory? Was Sebastin happy giving up the fleet? If you are going to write a good book, please Ms Jewel, don't rush the ending!!!. This was my first book by Ms Jewel, and just may be the last.

Compelling characters, a determined spirit, and a murder mystery. Good, but not great, read.

I had bought Lord Ruin and really enjoyed it, so thought I would follow up with this one. Bad idea. The supernatural within itself did not bother me, but the lack of cohesiveness did. I could not tell what was a "dream" and what was life. After chapters of this confusion, I was fed up. I also never saw where the characters had that epiphany moment when they realize they belong together, they just are together. I cannot believe this is the same author.
