2.0 out of 5 stars disjointed. 19 Nov. 2009
By incognito - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is so disjointed I had to reread the first few pages to make the next make sense - and it only helped a little, I ended up just reading past what didn't make sense and got some clarification later. The rest of the story flows smoother, but is so disjointed its distracting. The hero of the story, Sebestian, leaves his wife for 6 years and no one knows why, he comes back reinvigorated with love for his wife Eleanor and she receives him happily. I was reading this on a Kindle and so don't have the usual sense of where in book I am, but it seemed like the first half this book was only content from the two main characters and the author realized there is nothing else going on besides this "oh-so mysterious" intrigue that all the sudden other characters popped up. Its intrigue was not intriguing. There was no mystery. The characters were likable enough, but lacked depth. If your husband leaves off and on for 3 years and then just gone for 3 years - would you ask questions? I guess Eleanor was so relieved to have him back and continue her "spy-work" that she just accepted his return. The entire thing was tedious to get through. And towards the end, well it sucked. Things just happened because you made it to a new page. The story had potential, but overall its disjointed and lacking.

It must be known that an author like Jillian Hunter can sell based on her name alone, but now I just feel taken advantage of - this book is not worth your money. With a disappointment like this...I'm not sure how she'll redeem herself.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 5 Nov. 2009
By Constantreader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Sebastien Boscastle leaves his wife Eleanor the day after their marriage, is gone for three years on government war missions, then is back only sporadically for the next three years. Six years after their marriage, he returns to finally settle down and make it up to his wife. A wonderful premise for a book, with the potential for some great scenes and relationship building. Unfortunately, none of that ever happens. Why he decided to be gone for so long is not explained satisfactorily. Instead, the book is mostly taken up with an ill-advised plot where Eleanor, as a favor to the Duchess of Wellington, dresses as a swashbuckling gentleman and breaks into houses at night to retrieve some supposedly indiscreet letters that have something to do with the Duke. How these letters end up in all these different houses, why, and how the Duchess finds out about them is never properly explained (the Duke doesn't care about them). Also, the only letter the reader is privy to, has nothing to do with the Duke's sex life. Eleanor doesn't seem to have much of a problem welcoming her husband back to her bed after six years of mostly absence. While there is some minor discussion of Sebastien having to prove he loves her, we're not given any real conflict between the two. They seem to get along just fine, in spite of the absence, so the reader doesn't care much either. The upshot is that the potentially interesting aspect of these people is never explored, while we are treated to a silly plot that is uninvolving and makes no sense. Ms. Hunter has shown herself in the past to be quite able to write a moving and involving story of interesting people. What happened here?

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I would expect from this writer. 2 Dec. 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I see Jillian Hunter's name and immediately purchase the book. This endeavor was not what I had hopped for.

I enjoyed all the Boscastle Books, however this one was not up to par. Although
I did like the characters, there just seemed to be something lacking... it was as if the husband simply had to wait around for the wife to give in and accept him. Which I did not find too objectionable, however there was not the tension or excitement that usually comes with Ms. Hunter's books.

Another factor contributing to my cool reception to the story, was the back and forth time sequences, from the beginning of the marriage to their current circumstances. I could have been done in a prologue, or perhaps first half.

In all it feels the author did not give her best effort when developing this tale. Hopefully, the next one will be better.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Boscastle epic 20 Aug. 2014
By Joyce McCutcheon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a fan of Ms. Hunter's. Her Boscastle clan have entertained me over a span of many years. Grayson Boscastle started it all at a wedding and I have enjoyed each wedding since. This story leaves me anticipating the other two brothers story. Sebastian and his erstwhile wife were a delightful give and take pair. The adventure was quite as exciting as one would wish. Thoroughly enjoyed!

5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous historical romance 26 Sept. 2009
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In the first three years of their marriage Sebastian Boscastle was more away from home than with his wife Eleanor. Three years ago he vanished while on an espionage mission. Eleanor missed her spouse but moved on.

Now in 1816 Sebastian has come home; having recovered from injuries to reclaim his spouse. He has heard rumors about her so he serendipitously watches her sneak out at night in male garb. She masquerades as the Mayfair Marauder trying to steal letters from traitors planning on harming Wellington. Sebastian decides to join his wife on her mission so that he can seduce this "gentleman" to join him in his bed.

The latest Boscastle Regency romance is a fabulous historical filled with pathos and wit as the lead protagonist must court the legendary Mayfair Marauder in order to re-earn the trust of his wife; he knows he has one advantage, which is love. Fans will appreciate this engaging tale as the intrepid Eleanor may still love her husband, but believes he will leave again so kicks him to the proverbial Mayfair curb. The fun in this enchanting Boscastle gender war is observing the wicked lord refusing to quit on love.
