Much before Robyn Carr was writing her very popular contemporary romance series such as Virgin River and Shelter Mountain, she was fascinated by the Restoration period in England and decided to write her first book with that setting. I definitely can admire that very young Robyn Carr (26 at the time), with two babies (1 and 3 years of age), who wrote this book at the table and had to clear off her typewriter at dinner time so her young family could eat together, but, honestly, sometimes an author's very early work should not be resurrected on Kindle. Sometimes these books are no longer in publication for a reason.
At that time Carr was inspired by Kathleen Winsor's FOREVER AMBER and Anya Seton's body of work. Unfortunately, she seems to have been inspired to compete in novel length, in addition to time frame, and this novel is much too long and wordy. To be fair, I have to say that the book has some good moments. If I hadn't already read so many historicals about the Restoration, I'd have found some bits of interest here. And she made her Charles II dissolute (as he was) but also very charismatic (which he also was).
Sadly, Charles II was my favorite character in the book, followed by hero Chadwick's friend John and by heroine Chelynne's uncle and these were all secondaries. The hero and heroine were not to my liking. Well, I'll cut some slack for the 16-year-old heroine. She's maybe too young to expect wise and mature actions from her. The hero, however, is 33. He gets no passes from me.Read more ›
