To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This author’s writing is execrable. Mangled grammar, anachronisms that take the reader out of the period, words used twice in the same short sentence. She uses terms such as behoove, onus, conducive and exhort without having a clue what they actually mean. The plots are ones used by other, better authors. No wit, no sparkle, they just plod on relentlessly. Don’t bother.
I enjoyed reading this set. Very good stores, nice characters . The first book , I had to flip through many pages while the hero or heroine went over their thoughts many times ,but it is still worth the read as the story line was good. The other books were better and more engaging.
An entertaining boxed set of regency romances involving 4 sisters and a cousin. Each story was different from the previous one and could be a stand alone. They are clean stories without swearing, violence, or graphic sex. Would be suitable for any age group.
The first 4 of the 5 book series had storylines that held my attention. My favorite was The Noble Spy, with Titatia being the sassiest and most exciting of all the characters. Viscount Carroway who through the series of events ends up courting and eventually marrying her, is also a strong, masculine, caring character. The final book Loving a Scoundrel was least enjoyable, too much rhetoric and repetition on the feelings between the main characters, Clayton & Dinah, who were likable. I found myself speed reading or skipping most of the acrimony of their love relationship. Also Dinah judgmental personality and her eventual turn around was expounded upon in excess. As mentioned 4 out of 5 is pretty good, thus the 4 star rating
