4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could do better
Both the books are lively reads but it is quite evident that the author has improved since she wrote them . The first book is rather silly, It is quite evident that the happy pair are not truly engaged, but protest a great deal about having no real affection. It runs along at a good pace but the reader feels rather unconvinced by their sham romance, and the outcome is...

They are OK and good fun. I enjoyed them while reading them but they are instantly forgettable. I wasn't bored! Not Mary Balogh at her best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could do better, 1 Sep 2013

This review is from: A Counterfeit Betrothal/The Notorious Rake (Mass Market Paperback)
Both the books are lively reads but it is quite evident that the author has improved since she wrote them . The first book is rather silly, It is quite evident that the happy pair are not truly engaged, but protest a great deal about having no real affection. It runs along at a good pace but the reader feels rather unconvinced by their sham romance, and the outcome is too obvious. The second book is more successful .It starts with a mutual seduction and plots the tensions and the emotional commitment building up following the sexual attraction. Underlying both books are two family estrangements, each lasting fifteen years! This seemed to me rather excessive.

Lighter weight than some of Mary Balogh's work, but as always highly enjoyable, with sympathetic characters and a believable plot.

I enjoy historical novels and this one did not disappoint either. Two stories in the book, although only slightly connected the stories were great reads.

Usually one story is better than another when there are two in one volume. Both of these stories were good.

This review is from: A Counterfeit Betrothal/The Notorious Rake (Mass Market Paperback)
Very readable if you love this genre which I do. Both are good stories with very good dialogue, but I particularly love The Notorious Rake.
