Tualla has hit her stride in this, the third installment of the Nicolas & Sydney series. With the story revolving around Nicolas' bid for a seat on the Missouri State Legislature in 1822, Tualla takes us on a wild ride of crooked politics, moral deceit, haunting pasts and the love that sees the two main characters through it all. The pace is quick and the unanswered questions keep you moving to the next page to discover the decision made or the truth revealed. The ending is satisfying, but uncertain till the final pages. But it is the characters that will draw you in. Be sure to read the first two books, A Woman of Choice and A Prince of Norway, to appreciate the entire back story for this tale.
I love the balance Kris Tualla creates with their intimate relationship and the family as a whole. The highs and lows of everyday life in 19th century Missouri come across to the reader in a real time way. I am eager to read more of the Hansen Series.
Enjoyed every one of Kris Tualla's books in her Hansen Series, including "A Matter of Principle." Since a good bit was involved in "dirty politics" ... I could really relate to what is happening now!
As soon as I finished reading one... I wanted to start right away with another. Just enough spark and spice to make it exciting but not over done. Have just downloaded her latest, "Discreet Gentleman" and can hardly wait to begin it. The only draw back that I can see at this point... Since, as of now, "D.G" is the last one so far.... is running out of books of hers to read.
The most difficult part of loving a good read is knowing that there comes an end to the story. I found myself reading all of these virtually non-stop. Fortunately, while recovering from surgery, I didn't have to explain my choices to "just read". Thank you for some excellent books!!!!
Well written, enjoyable storyline , the story flowed with not to much going over old history. The characters were well fleshed out and believable. Would like to see books of the same series grouped together so that you can read them in order
I have enjoyed reading this series. The books are well written and hard to put down as each has a different twist. The characters are brought to life and create empathy with the reader.
I have found it difficult to read the series in chronological order. It would be good to see the books listed in the correct order so the thread running through them is connected. Each book though is stand alone but there are references to other books in the series.
The sex descriptions are very graphic and extremely lengthy. I skip these as they are over the top and repetitive.
