Angela is the sequel to Portrait. In this story, a very nice man from Portrait gets his own story, and gets another chance to get the girl. The h and H from Portrait, his neighbors, also return briefly in this novel. Nice story about nice characters, but lacking the suspense of Portrait.
Delicate Situation is the story of a really nice girl. She is so generous in fact that she puts own well-being in peril to come to the aid of two orphans. She really needs the H's help in order to save the day, however, she is also a very strong, resourceful person in her own right. Are her fine qualities including courage and goodness enough to win the H's heart, and is his heart worth winning?
Reformed Rake is a sequel to Situation, continuing the story of the H and h from where Situation leaves off. Much of the book (too much) deals with the fact that the H is selfish and immature- often unkind to the h who needs a lot of patience to put up with him. Disappointing sequel. I would have to agree with another reviewer who stated that Chater was not at her best while writing sequels.
As in the Kindle versions of her other works, you can expect typos such as a "1/4" appearing in place of a letter, and other errors. Confusing, but you can figure out what was intended. It is unfortunate that more care wasn't given to proofread the Kindle versions before offering them for purchase. All four of the novels in this collection are clean, as are the other Chater novels I have read with the exception of Emerald Love (which contains rape scenes). Chater is not the most profound writer you will come across, but most of her novels are worth reading.
The story lines, characters and character building are excellent. I am assuming the books were originally printed long before the 1990's. The detailed facts are certainly far more accurate during the time period of the 1700's-1800's than many books written and printed now . . .if you are interested in those points. Excellent punctuation and grammatically-correct-writing abound, which is hard pressed to find in many of today's novels. I also thought all of them were written with "a bit" of traditional English used during that period and in the locations the novels take place (Great Britain). I would have given them all 5 stars, including all of the Elizabeth Chater Regency Romance Collection's #1, #2, #3, & #4 . . .
EXCEPT FOR THE PROOFREADING: errors were missed when put in the Kindle format. It is rather disheartening when there are twice to three times the number of errors than pages in the book. It is not the author's fault; the fault lies with whoever published and then proofread it in Kindle format. Had all of the 16 books not been so delightful in every way, all of the collections would have gotten 1 star.
I persevered, however. It took me much longer to read them because of the errors. I have read all of the collections and will stick with the 4 star ratings. The higher rating because the author had absolutely nothing to do with the proofreading! The stories, writing of them and characters far outweigh the miserable job of the publisher's proofreader/formatter. I hope they weren't paid for their work!
If you love old fashioned romance, when a kiss is enough to make your heart skip a beat, not to mention entangling character interaction as a part of your Regency Romance experience, then don't let the proofreading/formatting problems keep you from reading these books. They are well worth the time and effort and a real bargain for four books each . . . they are NOT novellas!
Elizabeth Chater was truly a "3-kg diamond in a platinum setting" of an author.
