Gun ... fire !
If I liked the first installment, I just loved this sequel, between the hero and his amped up mutt, it was such an enjoyable read.
Daniel is such a amusing and kind fellow, thinking about the others before himself even if he does not renege on his own pleasure. I just adored him. He does not compromise and wealth has no weight on him. He goes where the wind blows.
Juliet was set up with three friends to be ruined, so much her betrothed ended their engagement. So on her way to go home, she meets a young man whose appearance is far from her usual sphere but is a gentleman at heart.
While Dan feels protectiveness close to Juliet, their relationship evolves quickly from mere acquaintance to companionship then trusting friendship.
I loved to follow them as they get to know one another, confiding their dreams and mistakes, how Dan has a very personal view of life and does not let bumps and holes impede his mood.
His family is quite unique and fun to observe.
A very charming and witty 5 stars read.
I was granted an advance copy by the publisher Dragonblade Publishing, here is my true and unbiased opinion.
I think you would enjoy this story more, if you read book 1 first. To feel the 4 women's anguish when they realize someone tricked them. This is what the stories are based on, the villains need to revenge.
I loved the grandfather in this story and of course the very badly behaved monster dog. The dog made me laugh and it antics when the word FIRE would be said, added lightness to the story.
It was sweet how the H/h met and how they formed their bond through honesty with each other. There were minor typo's, one made me laugh widow instead of window.
There are some passionate kisses prior to marriage, and mildly described lovemaking, once, within marriage, heat level 2.5 out of 5 and only described once.
No cheating, no cliffhanger except the continuation of the villain, HEA, romance and small tad of steam. The epilogue was sweet too 3 months in the future. I recommend this story and series. (ljb)
This story runs concurrent with book one with a continuation as to the ladies in waiting for the Princess of Wales who end up in a scandal.
This is Juliet and Daniel's story, oh and let's not forget his dog Gun! Trying to flee the scandal that is brewing and nobody to help her, she makes her way to her family's country house and meets up with Daniel, whose grandfather's estate borders her families.
Daniel has his own problems but the two make a journey toward love with a lot of bumps along the way. Really great story!
What an amazing cast of characters! Not only did I adore the Hero, and Heroine, but the families involved shine, as well! It is a gifted author, indeed, who can create such complex and and truly loveable characters! Even the grouchy characters are endearing, in their own special way!
The beautiful romance between Juliet and Daniel is just perfect, and as their friendship grows, you will find yourself cheering for them to find happiness together, in spite of all of the obstacles in their path. I must mention the loveable, loyal Gun, Daniel's faithful canine companion, who also shines!
What a story, what a spectacular addition to The Season of Scandal series! Warm, wonderful, and enchanting, Abandoned to the Prodigal is one of those special books that you hate to see end and are eager to read again!
Bravo, Mary Lancaster!
Enter Lord Barden, with a letter and the announcement that he would attend her sister’s engagement party. And, her father’s declaration that he might see her married to him, instead of pushing her former betrothed into marriage, Juliet feels trapped. Which one will she marry, who is attempting to kill either her or Daniel and why?
Top reviews from other countries
She flees first to her fiance who repudiates her, so almost penniless, she decides to return home on the stage to her parents.
On the coach she meets Daniel, our good-humoured hero, accompanied by his large and boisterous hairy dog, Gun.
He seems even more hard-up than herself and is a roof passenger. They pool their meagre resources and share what food they have
Daniel is on the way to attend his curmudgeonly grandfather's deathbed, with all the other relatives. His grandfather has yet to select an heir
By the time they reach their destination they find out they are close neighbours, and that Daniel's mother actually jilted Juliet's father.
Juliet is in disgrace with her parents. She must not show her face in the neighbourhood. The villain is hot on their heels and someone is trying to kill Daniel!
Despite these tribulations our happy pair continue to meet secretly and pick their way through with good humour and deepening understanding of each other toward their happy ending.
I would again thoroughly recommend this book, and look forward to the next.
