"The Taming of Ryder Cavanaugh" is the latest Cynster book by Stephanie Laurens and it was a pretty decent read. It was nice to re-visit the Cynster clan and see the latest changes to the family. But I do have agree with other reviewers the book seem to longer than it needed to be. Overall, "The Taming of Ryder Cavanaugh" was okay and it would be interesting to see where Ms. Laurens take the series.
I did appreciate her drawing up of all those generations in the annual Summer at Somersham event, which has become something of a tradition. Here we got to read a bit about the next generation and really understand how the Cynster family is evolving with that sense of familiy ties that was present in Devil's Bride. The children appear to have formed as close a bond as their parents and , for that alone, Ms Laurens gets an extra star.There were hints of strong personalities who may or may not have their own stories.I only hope that, if this is the case, those stories don't become a faint facismile of the first generation of Cynster novels that made Ms Laurens so popular.In a way, I'd much rather read a very well written story about a new Cynster generation ( to the standard of Devil's Bride ) than about Heathcote Montague or Barnaby Adair or some other vaguely interesting character that made little impact in one of her other novels.
This is about what Mary Cynster & ryder Cavanaugh both eventually succeed in having, family to love and be loved in return and it takes near death to realise for Ryder to state the words.
I hope Ms Laurens goes on to write more about the Cynsters next generation, Sebastian, Michael, Louisa Louisa and all their cousins misinformed from the other 5 Bar Cynsters as these will be a joy to follow for the wider family as we have got to know them and all there exploits.
Wonder if this will involve any of the Bastion Clubs brood...we can only hope
Well done Ms Laurens.
Mary and Henrietta Cynster, the heroines of this book and of its' predecessor respectively, are the cousins of the three sisters, Heather, Eliza and Angelica Cynster, who were the heroines of the previous trilogy, which consisted of
1) "Viscount Breckenridge To The Rescue" (Heather)
2) "In Pursuit Of Eliza Cynster" and
3) "The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae (Cynster)" (Angelica)
In the first of those books, "Viscount Breckenridge to the rescue," while visiting Scotland, Heather Cynster was given a special necklace which has some kind of pagan religious powers: it was supposed to help an unmarried lady who wears it to find her "hero" and true love. We were told in that book that this necklace would pass in turn from Heather Cynster to her sisters Eliza and Angelica, and then to their cousins Henrietta and Mary before returning to Scotland.Read more ›
