I have mixed feelings about the set because the individual books were of uneven quality. Overall, some books were well edited, some not too badly and some poorly edited. Problems with the editing consisted of using the wrong word, such as writing complement instead of compliment; using a word incorrectly, as if using a thesaurus without understanding the nuances and actual meanings; some sentences that had words missing or extra words added, as if the author changed a sentence but forgot to remove words that were supposed to be deleted; and some places where spellcheck ran amok and changed words, so that the sentence didn't make sense. Based on this, there were some authors whose books I would buy and others whose books I would likely avoid.
Most of the books had anachronistic language, sensibilities and mores. Some only had a few instances, while others were riddled with them. It was particularly bad in a couple of the books, with heroines dropping the f bomb and, to paraphrase, suggesting that someone go and fornicate with himself. I am really fussy about my books set in the UK and find anachronisms to be unacceptable. I'm more forgiving of anachronisms in books set in the US, but a couple of these books really pushed the boundaries. As for the language, it doesn't bother me, not even the f bomb that gives some readers apoplexy. However, I expect it in contemporary or paranormal settings, not in historical romances. Characters in historical romances shouldn't be using a phrase about saving someone's ass; it's too modern.
Some reviewers were upset because of the explicit sex scenes, but I didn't find them to be objectionable.Read more ›
Laying Claim, Paty Jager, Amazon Bestselling author. Jeremy Duncan heads into the
Yukon Territory by dog team in the middle of a blizzard to keep one strong-willed, business-minded beauty alive. “A wonderful plunge into the Alaskan gold mining era.”
This is Book 1 of a trilogy. Clara Bixbee travels from Seattle to the lawless, rugged Yukon with one purpose in mind..to find her brother. Since the gold rush in the territory, Jeremy Duncan felt the best way to make a living was to hire out as a guide, get people over the passes to their destinations. Jeremy wants to do right by Clara, especially when his sister and brothers-in-law expect him to do the right, honorable thing. He agrees to accompany Clara over a treachorous pass to find her brother. What ensures is a battle of wills from two strong-minded people, fraught with danger, adventure and finally love. This is a very good story set in the wilderness. The author brings the territory and the era to life for the reader. Watching the main characters fall in love amid the beauty and peril of the Yukon made for an exciting story. This would be a 5 Star read excerpt there were a few typos, missing words. Good job to the author on plot, characters, setting and an adventurous read. 4 Stars
Sleight of Heart by Jacquie Rogers - Another adventure between a spinster and a card gambler, only this story had humor throughout. This story also has a main character searching for a lost relative, his brother. Burke O’Shaughnessy promises Lexie Campbell he'll find his younger brother, the man who comprised Lexie's younger sister.Read more ›
Laying Claim had too much of a modern feel to it and was kind of unbelievable. Clara was too headstrong and bossy at the beginning. In The Most Unsuitable Courtship, the reader must suspend reality when reading it. Sooo much happens to them in such a short time. I think it could have been a good story but it just didn't click with me. The other books didn't appeal to me or I've already read and reviewed them.
