I love the entire Sebastian St. Cyr series. C. S. Harris writes engaging novels with a good mix of mystery, suspense, history, and dynamic characters. I'm always looking forward to the next book in the series!

My Favorite Kind of Historical Mystery! Ms. Harris does so much research and writes such interesting characters, there are many layers to the books and this one is definitely a treat. I am forever fascinated by the details of the dresses, hats, fabrics, types of professions, as well as the descriptions on real places and people that are woven into the story. In this one, we meet relatives on Alfred, Lord Tennyson. As for the main characters. here we have the newly wedded couple, who have so much in common, but really don't know it yet. It is so fun watching them get from point A to point C. Hero is such a wonderful, smart character.Writing her as the daughter of the most powerful man in England and making her the wife of the main character, who is complex himself, but whose worst enemy is her father, makes the tension in the story brilliant. In most mysteries, I can usually guess what will happen next and who did it. These novels are very different. New characters are introduced and I have yet to guess the outcome. Will we meet James Knox again? What is happening with Sofie Hendon? Will the baby be a boy or girl? I totally agree with the reviewer that stated these novels just get better and better. However, I don't get the profanity mentioned from the last reviewer; I did not catch any profanity; if you want it, watch TV. Also, this is early 19th century England; no one is going to talk the way we talk today. Gor!.... Now, I need to do some more research on some ot the things mentioned in the book. Hmmmm....

Well done C.S. Harris, and welcome back Sebastina et all. Harris once again, masterfully combines the who-done-it with the intricacies of the life of Lord Devlin... and oh what a great life he leads! The addition of Hero Jarvis Devlin was a masterstroke. Well researched and wonderfully written, these books just get better and better. I recommend them to anyone looking for an escape into the past. I have read them several times, not for the mystery but for the characters... they have become friends. I look forward to the next installment.

This series just keeps getting better. The mystery is drawn up well, but it is the characters that keep you coming back.

LOVE Sebastian and Hero--I found this series about two years ago and have just fallen in love with him, as a character. The gradual (sometimes too gradual) development of his relationship with Hero is a real joy. BUT "Maidens" is not the best part of the series--this one is rather slow, although the Arthurian-angle is one of my favorite subjects. Part of the problem is that for the bulk of the book Sebastian and Hero are basically at odds--too much distance (emotional and otherwise) between them. These novels work best when the lovers are "together"--if even sparring in their typical smart, sexually-charged, way. These newlyweds are trying to find their footing, but here's hoping Harris lets them settle into the passionate, tense relationship that works so well and stops all the "we want each other; we don't trust each other; is Sebastian even in love?" nonsense. The tendency to allow Hero to be a ruthless killer is really fun (she is smart and fiercely independent, which is great)--the woman can wield a weapon--but I hope it does not become predictable or ridiculous. And it's time to get rid of Kat--she was great before Hero became a dominant force; now she's just a distraction. It's time to move her along.

This is a great series. You really need to start with the first book to understand the nuances behind the actions. You fall in love with the characters - their flaws and strengths. You admire their courage, their honor and you dispair of their failings of understandings. You cheer when they take a step forward. You weep for the lies told and believed. I like the way that Sebastian and Hero start learning and accepting each other and start to realize that they have feelings. I always keep an eye out for the next installment. It is very well worth the time to read.
