Knights of Passion
Knights of Passion
Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good with one exception., 21 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have given this 4 stars for the reason that there is one book which warrants criticism. 'Arucard' by Barbara Devlin has a good story, and is part of the "Brethren of the Coast" series. However, Miss Devlin's attempts to write in some sort of old English is positively excruciating. Such glaring mistakes as "we art" instead of "we are" and wrong use of thee and thou; use of the word 'thither' as in 'thither thou art' , meaning 'there you are' - not as 'in that place', but as a statement of conclusion - and using 'wherefor' instead of 'whyfor' to name but a few. The whole thing is as screechingly discordant as an out of tune violin. The rest of the books are excellent.

A wonderful collection of stories which demonstrate love, goodness and forgiveness through tales of teddy bears that should enchant both adults and children alike. I can't wait to read them to my grandchildren.

1.0 out of 5 stars Blindingly predictable., 19 May 2016

I was really glad that this was so short. The literary style is poor, the story predictable, but totally out of character for the period. I shall be happy to delete it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Put it Down, 16 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Axel the quiet brother, like many quiet people, has many hidden depths. A seemingly slightly eccentric botanist, but also the local magistrate who has to solve the murder of a somewhat disliked former Army officer. His wife, finally free of a sterile marriage, discoverers how he has cheated her in innumerable ways while keeping her a virtual prisoner. Axel causes her to recover, thrive and blossom, bringing an excellent story to a very satisfactory conclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Readable, 14 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I couldn't put this book down. A charming story of intrigue and love with a woman who gets on with what life has thrown at her even though she has been badly treated by her selfish father, and her new boss, a baron who understands her and loves her in the best way possible. (Oh, to find a man like him!!) But then, this is Grace Burrowes, and she writes exceedingly good books!

My Favorite Rogue: 8 Wicked, Witty, and Swoon-worthy Heroes

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read., 12 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am very glad I didn't allow the first book to put me off. Obviously based on Jane Austen's Emma, the "heroine" was a total idiotic mess, and added to that was a child with a pet snake from which she refused too be parted. You will not find such a thing as a 5 foot grass snake, and certainly not in Regency England. Nor would said child have been allowed to behave in such a manner. However, the second book was by Grace Burrowes, and definitely more than good enough to calm my ruffled feathers, and dismiss the preceding rubbish. All books thereafter were well worth reading, and most enjoyable. Definitely a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 11 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The path from rags to riches for Tansy naturally will not be smooth, but the exchange of insults between her and various others is brilliantly and inspiringly written. She might not have had the womanly attributes expected of a woman of her time, but what she did have was far superior. The aunt's continuous flow of quotations is quite amazing in their variety, and interesting in that, although I knew many of them, I did not always know the origin or author. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good and Bad., 11 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A large collection of books, many of which were most enjoyable. However, I ended up not bothering with the last two as they were of no interest to me. With the name of Kathryn Le Veque I expected all the books to be similar to hers, and was disappointed to find that there were a couple of cuckoos in the nest. Still worth buying at such a bargain price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Predictable., 5 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed the first book, and then the second, but by the time I got to the third, I was getting bored because all the stories had the same plot, and were becoming somewhat predictable. I shall leave it and read something else and maybe go back to it on a rainy day.

This review is from: A Slip In Time (Kindle Edition)
A most enjoyable tale, and unusual in that the time shift is back from the 19th century rather than modern-day. Definitely a page turner ; I couldn't put it down.
