The Unwilling Earl - A Regency Novella by Audrey Harrison
I was really pleased at the start of The Unwilling Earl as it was different from other regency romances in that it started with his childhood. However I was disappointed when after the initial incident of a bearing at the hand of "the lords in waiting" the book rushed through him growing up and his revenge, in a matter of sentences. I think it would have benefitted from delving deeper into his history before starting the main romance. It was just too short and not enough depth for my liking.
An Inconvenient Companion (A Regency Romance): Inc&hellip by Audrey Harrison
5.0 out of 5 stars a lovely romance, 27 July 2014
What a fantastic read! And the added sorrow, which was a welcome surprise, really makes this novel stand out from other regency romances. It was great to get to know the characters from An Inconvenient Ward better and what a story! I can't wait to read more from this author.
The Summer Queen (Eleanor of Aquitaine trilogy) by Elizabeth Chadwick
5.0 out of 5 stars great in depth story, 22 July 2014
As with her other novels, Chadwick fills The Summer Queen to the brim with intricate details and vivid descriptions. The characters come across as real people, which most were, and it's hard to imagine that you're not reading an actual account of someone's life. It has the added bonus of lots of small details about clothes, food and landscape that really make everything so believable and interesting. I highly recommend this book.
