5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner by Stella Riley, 22 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another great read from Stella Riley. I first read one of her books (Marigold Chain) by chance selection from the library over 30 years ago and have devoured all of her Civil War and Restoration novels. I was delighted when they were issued on Kindle as I had never found a printed copy of Marigold Chain etc.

I agree with other reviewers that the Rockcliffe series may be deemed 'lighter' in context-no civil war, but there is intrigue, a nasty villain, humour and believable characters all round. She is a fine writer whose sense of period feels so right. (Not regency!) There is sexual tension without dreadful descriptions of torrid (and improbable) sexual gymnastics, how refreshing!
There are so many poorly written 'regency' type romances that are full of historical inaccuracy, inappropriate language, dodgy geography and a failure to get such simple things as rank and aristocratic titles correct (you only have to look in a reference book!). Few of the pretenders to this genre can even get the dates of the regency period right let alone anything else! No such worries with Ms Riley's work. Wasn't she a history teacher?

I do hope that Ms Riley will tell the story of Lord Nicholas?

1.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment!, 30 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A disappointing read, one dimensional characters and poor and sparse plot. I have been a fan of this author for a long time and was really disappointed with this much anticipated book. I doubt that I'll buy the rest of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Civil War Gem, 23 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well written and soundly researched. Believable characters in an excellent story set at the time of the English Civil War. I am a fan of Stella Riley's work which I happily re-read from time to time. I was so pleased to put this on my Kindle as my paperback is so well thumbed as to be getting fragile.
