Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Intriguing protagonists, quirky secondary characters, and a surprising plot make for an endearing sequel to Rice's 2010 Regency The Wicked Wyckerly, even if the romance never rises above lukewarm. Reckless Blake Montague enters a marriage of convenience with Jocelyn Carrington, hoping to use her funds to buy a military commission so he can solve the French military codes with which he has become obsessed. Jocelyn sees an opportunity to regain her family home, which her older brother lost to the Montagues in a game of chance. Though Jocelyn and Blake find each other attractive, the sex is never more than an extra convenience of marriage, but their wacky families—Jocelyn's socially awkward younger brother and genealogy-obsessed mother; Blake's mother, who is sure the silver streak in his hair means he's about to die; and some clever, foul-mouthed parrots—make the novel fun and worthwhile.

    PHENOMENAL

    Jocelyn Byrd-Carrington didn't want to marry and give up her freedom after finally freeing herself from the shackles of her wretched family. She wanted the home her dastardly elder brother lost gambling. Except the only way for Jocelyn to get her family's estate back is by marrying the very man who now holds the deed to her family's dwelling.

    The thing Blake Montague desired most was his army colors, not a wife. Without funds, the only way for Blake to buy his colors was to marry for money. And then Jocelyn makes him an offer he cannot refuse. What begins as a marriage of convenience turns into the security Jocelyn has always craved, the home Blake never knew he wanted, and a love to last a lifetime.

    The second installment in her Rebellious Sons series, Rice creates a compelling cast of characters filled with emotional depth and an intriguing story readers will not soon forget. A rollicking, fast paced read bursting with hilarity. I could not put the book down until the last page! Patricia Rice has added another enticing, enthralling story to her already impressive repertoire.

    an amusing marriage of convenience twisted tale

    Still recovering from war injuries suffered on the Peninsular, Lord Blake Montague applies for a position as a cryptologist in the War Office, but is rejected. Instead War Secretary Lord Castlereagh advises Blake to marry wealth as his family cannot afford to waste money on the spare to buy his colors; only a moneyed bride could as the stunned Blake sarcastically states: "I should marry to save England?"

    Blake meets Miss Jocelyn Byrd-Carrington and the prince of profanity Percy the Parrot who she just bird-napped from the Duke of Fortham. She explains to Blake Percy belongs to her brother Richard so she is justified in rescuing the foul mouthed fowl. Meanwhile, Blake finds life with Jocelyn, her family and the animal kingdom invigorating though life changing. However, a series of accidents has Blake conclude someone has tried to kill him. With Richard, French cursing Percy and the parrot's soul mate assisting him, Blake breaks a secret code in which he realizes his country is in peril from inside and out.

    The second Rebellious Sons Regency romance (see The Wicked Wyckerly) is an amusing marriage of convenience twisted tale. The jocular story line is fun as the extended Bird-Carrington brood (pets are included) is a Regency version of You can't take it With You as Blake and his fowl comrades brilliantly break the French code but he struggles to break the code of betting on love.

    No. Do not bother.

    This book was torture to get through. Characters were barely tolerable but certainly not enthralling. Author was obviously excited about the birds, but their part of the storyline was obvious and ridiculous from the beginning. Not nearly as good as the first book of the series so skip this one.
