There are several likable characters to root for in this story. Jules and Vern are both very good natured, handsome and everyone likes them. Star is lively, outspoken and gorgeous. Sir Edward is sophisticated, the best looking man Star has ever seen and he's trying to redeem himself from his bad behavior in the previous book, Wildfire Kiss. The plot moves along at a fast pace, Claudy Conn always writes well and the tone is generally upbeat, even with the looming financial problems for the Berkley's.
Did you sense a "but" was coming? I waited a couple days to write this review because I was torn between 3 and 4 stars. This is the eighth Claudy Conn book I've read, and while I enjoy her writing style, it can be formulaic. This is not a criticism. I've read several dozen Dick Francis novels and they are all formulaic, but I still enjoyed them. However, every one of Claudy's book I've read has the heroine having sex with the hero before he declares his intentions and then she doubts his feelings for her and she feels bad about what she did (maybe not Myriah Fire, but the other seven heroines felt remorse). Ugh! I hate this plot device. I guess I keep reading her books to see if she'll change it up one of these times.Read more ›
Sir Edward Danton has lost the girl he thought he loved and is going off to hide for a while. In Rye, he runs into his old friend Jules, who is also coming to hide out with his supposed broken heart after being thrown over for another. Jules has a plan though, Star Berkley. Edward didn't think the gal was any good for his friend, what surprised him was that he wanted her for himself.
Star Berkley was in the country with her brother Vern instead of taking London by storm. Not only was Vern ill, he was burdened with money issues their father had left behind. In his desperation Vern had turned to the wrong people. Seems there could be worse things than losing your home, much worse.
If you read Claudy Conn's book, Wildfire Kiss, you would have already met Sir Edward Danton as he thinks that Lady Babs might be the love of his life. She thought different. This story has some exciting secondary characters along with the main ones. Her brother Vern, Miles Denning who is lover of all women, Jules and Georgina. There is romance and intrigue and a storyline that grabs hold of you from beginning and does not let go until the very end.
I highly recommend this book!
Nope, this story gets 2 stars on its merits as a story. It's pedestrian, repetitive, rather silly and not very historical. The characters are not well drawn and most seem to have been taken from my local high school, dressed up in period costume, and sent off into this story to do whatever it is they're doing here.
There's a hero who I assume was a bit of a jerk in a previous Conn book and now will be given the chance to redeem himself in this one. He almost blows that chance, but in his defense I must say he may be the best character in the book. (But that's not saying a whole lot. Remember the rest of them came from my local high school. He's at least a graduate.)
The heroine is a young, beautiful, innocent but adventurous (kinda) young woman and her best friend is ditto all this plus being a women's rights advocate (somewhat). There's also a rather useless brother of the heroine, who is trying to keep their estate from financial ruin and going about it all the wrong way. Plus a bunch of suitors for the lovely girls. Suitors who, BTW, seem to fall in and out of "love" with one or another woman just whimsically, making all final declarations of love much less convincing.
We also have some bad guys doing bad stuff, with an attempt by the author to do authentic period lower-class speech for them. Their nefarious doings plus all the romantic mix-ups are the gist of the whole story.
This may be worth the price I paid ($0.00) but I regret the time I spent reading it.Read more ›
