Book Description

2 Nov 2010 Richard and Rose
Scandal, murder and passion-an ordinary day for Richard and Rose. Richard and Rose, Book 5 When Richard and Rose visit his family estate in Derbyshire to celebrate the christening of their firstborn, Rose comes face to face with some hard realities about the powerful Kerre family. The vast majority of them are far from delighted with Richard's choice of wife. Plus, they think a man who shares his bed with his wife every night must have something wrong with him. Rose is driven half mad by Richard's overly careful love for her. Somewhere underneath that smooth, sophisticated surface lies the passionate, intense lover she longs for-and she takes steps to seduce that savage lover back into her bed. Their joyous occasion is marred by the theft of a valuable necklace. Richard's family looks to him to solve the crime-but something isn't adding up. Evidence pointing to two trusted servants seems too convenient...and then they're murdered. From the tangle of jealousies, secrets and desperate lies, Richard and Rose once again dance on the edge of danger to achieve justice-without dragging the family name into public scandal. Warning: Sharp-shootin' Rose goes gunning for her man in this one. So steamy sex ahoy!

More About the Author

I write. That's what I do. And I love a happy ending, especially a well deserved one.
I started writing in the historical romance genre, and I still love writing stories about those characters. But I branched out into paranormal romance and discovered a new world of Talents-shape-shifters (ever wonder where all those dragons went? They never left!), vampires, Sorcerers (a race of people with very special gifts) and others, as well as humans, who are not underestimated in my stories. I write contemporary romance, too, about people you might know, or know of.
I also make and fill doll's houses, so I suppose I'm all about the worlds of the imagination, and trying to make them real. I live in the UK, but I try to get over to the US when I can, to visit friends and to attend conventions. If I could choose a city to live in, it would probably be Manchester or Paris. I know, strange choices! Or Florence. Or New York. Or all four!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a pleasure to read.... 26 Jan 2010
By S. Brown - Published on Amazon.com

This is the fifth book in the Richard and Rose series and truly one of the best. If you have not read this series I cannot recommend enough starting with the first book, Yorkshire. The first book is how Richard and Rose first meet and fall in love and it cannot be missed. It has truly been a joy to read how Richard and Rose, along with a wonderful array of colorful characters, deal with the dramas that occur in their life set in the Georgian era.

This book takes Richard and Rose to his family estate in Derbyshire. Alot of secrets and lies come out in this one, so there is no shortage of the intrigue and suspense that is typical of a R and R adventure. We also get to see the couple evolve into an even deeper connection that I did not think was even possible. So if you are already a Richard and Rose fan, Eyton will not disappoint. It will only make you love the couple even more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely installment in an addictive series 13 Jun 2012
By T. Wheaton - Published on Amazon.com

"I'd discovered this to be one of Richard's secrets; everything he did was done superbly, adding to the whole effect of exquisite perfection. It was almost obsessive, but it was something he could drop at will, although some of it was so ingrained in him it had become instinct."

In this 5th book in Lynn Connolly's lovely Richard and Rose series, R&R have gone to his family's seat in Eyton to await the birth of their child. Rose delivers successfully and the family and a few close friends descend to celebrate the newest member of the Kerre family.

During the house party a valuable necklace is stolen and then a double murder occurs. As it appears the murder may not be the work of a stranger but a possibility that a family member is involved, Richard steps in to solve the mystery and to stave off a possible family scandal. Rose, of course, having a taste of working side by side with her husband in the areas of detection and crime, lends a hand.

On the personal front, Rose is dismayed when Richard refuses to re-engage in conjugal bliss. He is frightened with the possibility that he may get Rose pregnant again and refuses to allow his wife to wear herself out having children year after year. But this is unacceptable to Rose and she decides to take a few measures of her own.

Sigh. I love this series. I just do. I mentioned somewhere else that this was a bit of a different take on a series romance. Here the couple are in love (and have been almost since the first book) and are married. We get to see after the HEA and watch as the couple adjusts to married life and to each other.

This could get very stale very quickly. But Connolly does not allow that to happen. Instead she gives you a good story on multiple levels. On one level there is still the romantic and emotional tension between R&R. They are newlyweds, They love each other but they are still learning about each other and growing within their relationship.

On another level is the character exploration of each of these two people outside the romance. Rose is a complete fish out of water. She is a member of the lower gentry who has married very, very well to a man who is a perfect exquisite. Richard is a man with a scandalous past and an avocation very much outside the comfort zone of his aristocratic peers. Through the course of each book Connolly is unpeeling each of these two in well defined layers. Rose is slowly getting more comfortable in her skin amongst people who are very alien to her. She is sure of her husband, but she isn't always sure of herself. Richard is the true piece de resistance in this series. He is fast becoming one of my very favorite heroes. He is almost like a Georgian version of J.D. Robb's Roarke. He is all sophisticated veneer, beautiful waistcoats, and powdered wig on the surface, yet underneath he is not quite that civilized. As Lizzie, Rose's sister notes, "He has a will no one likes to cross."

And on a third level there is the plotting. Since R&R are together, the plot can't come from them getting together and Connolly can't make them angsty through several books. So she gives them adversaries to overcome and mysteries to solve. As mysteries go, this one was not very hard to figure out who the murderer was, but it does serve to set up some great moments of Richard kicking butt and taking names (in a very flawlessly graceful Richard manner, natch).

And finally there is the level where the writing just speaks to me. Connolly does just what I like. She gives me people who make sense! For instance, one of my pet peeves is when you have this Duke of Slut who is a master cocksman all over town for years and years and years who suddenly becomes a faithful, devoted husband because he's met this woman who can 'tame' him. Richard's past with women is scandalous. He wasn't merely a libertine. He was a cruel and uncaring person who was punishing himself more than anything. At one point Lizzie wonders if Rose is afraid that Richard will revert to his ways. But Richard lets his guard down only to Rose and she is sure of her man. She tells her sister:

"He didn't give up all that philandering for me, you know. He just grew bored with it."

That isn't to say all is sweetness and light with these two. They have their moments when they disagree and butt heads. In this book, Connolly does an excellent job of once again featuring the class divide between them. Richard is an aristocrat and for all that he walks to the beat of his own drum, he is still nobility born and bred. And for them, family, name, and honor must be upheld, scandal must be scotched. But Rose is closer to yeoman stock and when it appears to her that justice for two murdered servants might not be served, she is uneasy. For her it is about 'every mother's son' and the possibility that her Richard may be complicit in covering up murder in the name of family honor. But again, Connolly surprises me:

"For the first time, I felt uneasily apprehensive waiting for my husband, and I fortified myself with a small glass of Brandy. I was determined not to fall out with him, but I needed to get these things sorted out in my mind, or they would eventually come between us. Perhaps this is how many couples managed, with private disagreements smoothed over in public, but i didn't want to become like that. I would do my best to prevent it."

And they work it out.

Lovely installment in an addictive series.
5.0 out of 5 stars I liked it a great deal.... 13 Oct 2012

This was a fun story, even with the gruesome bits. The character development is nice as well. I won't bore you with a plot summary as I know other reviewers are fond of doing that. If you liked the other, previous, books in this series, I say that you should give this one a shot. The only problem I have with this book is that the immediately previous book in the series finally had chapter demarcations in it and this one, again, didn't like all the others. I prefer a Kindle book to be formatted with the chapter demarcations at the bottom of the screen. The mystery isn't difficult to figure out once all the pieces are in place, but it's still quite a ride with intrigue and a few misdirections, in a way. You won't regret reading this one, I think, so go for it!
1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment continues 30 May 2012
By Kate - Published on Amazon.com

I have read several of the 'Richard and Rose' books with the hope the writing will improve but sadly it doesn't. 'Eyton' will be the last book I read from this author. The storyline is very tedious and tends to be the same (especially since 'Venice') but when the author cannot even keep the characters in her own stories straight it is time to stop. In the beginning Richard's sister's name was Maria and Tom's sister's name was Georgianna. In 'Eyton' Georgianna has suddenly become Richard's sister. If you read one book in this series it is definitely enough.
