5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd in the new Victorian series, 17 Oct 2011

This review is from: The Bride Wore Scarlet (Avon Historical Romance) (Mass Market Paperback)
I love Liz Carlyle's books and have read them all. However, I was disappointed with her last new novel, the first in this new Victorian set, paranormal series. This second book is a vast improvement with more action than the first book.

Here we have two main characters who are both the children of characters who appeared in her previous Regency/Georgian series.
Carlyle is obviously not going to be able to use this devise for all the books in this series. It would be just too much of a contrived coincidence for all the children of the Regency characters to be paranormal i.e. seers.

Here we have Anais de Rohan, Max de Rohan's (Not Quite a Gentleman) daughter. Max and his wife are 'away', and although they are mentioned several times, they do not actually appear, unfortunately. Max's Italian grandmother, has identified his daughter rather than his son, as being the next "Guardian". She is therefore trained from a child to fight etc. How her parents manage to miss this, heaven only knows. However, she has a big problem, Guardians are traditionally men and women are not allowed into the society.

However, the society has a problem. A French child, a strong seer, is being held in Brussels by a relative who wants to use her in order to gain enormous power. The British Guardians have been asked by their French brothers, to liberate her and her mother. The French have rented a house near to where the child is being held. The best hope is for one of the British Guardians with the help of a woman posing as his wife, to infiltrate the child's relative's house. That's where Anais comes in handy. She is promised that if she poses as Lord B's wife, then she will be accepted into the Guardian's society.

I'm not saying any more, as there won't be any point in you reading it. I enjoyed it.

This review is from: The Bride Wore Scarlet (Avon Historical Romance) (Mass Market Paperback)
I was disappointed by the first book in this series but this one is much better. The story was more riveting and the characters better developed. Not as great as her master pieces A Deal with the Devil, Beauty Like the Night or Two Little Lies but not every en-devour can be perfect.

A terrific combination of action,adventure and romance. Anais is a feisty heroine who really captures the imagination. The sword fight was wonderful and I loved the interaction between the main characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars A damn good romp, 28 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was on the lookout for a nice trashy novel to enjoy and thought this would hit the spot. I am glad to say it had enough romantic / sexy elements to satisfy that craving but was also well written with involving characters, interesting period features and humour. I have since purchased two more Liz Carlyle books, read and very much enjoyed one and am saving the other for the next time I need a good period romp.
