This review is from: Gabriel's Woman (Kindle Edition)
I read Robin Shone in paperback a few years ago, and the stories have stayed with me all this time. When I was gifted with a Kindle, I downloaded 2 of her books, The lady's tutor and Gabriels Woman. My goodness, all the old memories came flooding back and I devoured each book. Taking a day each to get through. You need to know more, you need to learn about these characters, hear their stories because you care. The sexy and erotic love scenes play a part in the tales but, they merely add to the tension, to the feeling and depth of these people. They are flawed, they are complex, they have reasons for being where they are and the reasons are both compelling and shocking. I found these books fascinating, interesting, sexy, and above everything else gripping. I loved and cared about the 'hero', I took an interest in the women, more so because they seemed a little more realistic. There is a tendency to repeat descriptions of sounds and scenes which I found a little lazy of the author but this did not detract from the overall ambience of the tales. I highly recommend reading these smashers, just because they will open your eyes to something a little more tantalising and a little more raw than your usual fictional historical romance.
