5.0 out of 5 stars Another fine addition to the series... (number 4 Pennyroyal Green), 10 July 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Kissed an Earl: Pennyroyal Green Series (Kindle Edition)
It probably helps to have read at least the first in this series (The Perils of Pleasure (Avon Romantic Treasure) which I strongly commend, it's a lovely book, as is this.

You really do have to suspend belief however - but isn't that what historical romance is all about - and it's probably stuffed full of historical inaccuracies (dart boards, for example, only came along around the turn of the 19th century) but what the heck, this was a fun read and I really don't care!

Violet is bored, bored, bored, and deeply wounded by the sudden disappearance of her beloved brother a year or so ago - a departure inspired by something a woman (the daughter of the family's deadly enemy to be exact) said. No one knows what was said, or where he's gone, and Violet is hurting inside. So when she puts a very vague 2 and 2 together and decides they make 4, every one she puts her theory to laughs at her, pats her on the head and tells her not to worry her pretty self about it. So she takes action. Drastic action, thereby setting the scene for not only the discovery of what was said to her brother and what it inspired him to do, but the sparkling development of a relationship between the intelligent, strong-willed, spoilt, over-indulged but determined Violet and the equally intelligent, equally strong-willed, definitely never indulged or spoilt and grimly determined hero.

The secondary story about her brother pulls the story along and is credible (well, sort of, if you can accept that a man with no experience of the sea can achieve what is achieved), but that element aside, it's a good reason and you really want to know what happened/s.

The main story is excellent - two strong individuals with irreconcilable aims learning that love can fuzz up ones focus, and learning that sometimes one has to compromise.

This is a good series, and while I've not read number 3, I can strongly recommend the second, Like No Other Lover (Avon Romantic Treasure).
