The second oldest Amesbury brother, Jared, is the hero in this book. You love him from first to last - and -- you better have a full box of tissues for the last few chapters because you will need all of them. Jared is the perfect irreverent foil to Elise. He brings out a whole different side of her. Jared is the most honorable man you'll meet - but he's between a rock and a hard place. He is an agent of the crown and has had to do some bad things because of that - and he's on his last mission. However, his past is catching up with him and threatening those he loves.
Elise thinks she's a happy widow and has absolutely no intention of ever remarrying because she thinks she could never find another man to equal her first husband. However, Jared makes her wonder if she was quite as happy in that marriage as she thought she was. She's pretty repressed -- very prim and proper. The way she and Jared meet shows you she has a bit of a non-conformist in her, but she keeps it pretty well restrained. You love her from beginning to end as well.
I had a couple of issues with the book (series) -- and you'll notice from my unusual 5-star rating that they didn't really bother me. First -- The oldest brother (Cole - from book one) is an earl and as such I would have thought that the brothers would have been referred to as Lord Jared, etc. rather than Mr. Amesbury and that the wives and sisters would be Lady xxxxx. Second -- the secret service folks refusing to help when Jared was about to be hanged. I can understand that they would not publicly acknowledge him, but why wouldn't they do anything behind the scenes to prevent the hanging. I didn't like that part at all!!! Thus -- the need for the tissues.
I love how the Amesbury brothers always come together to help each other even though they think they are not close. They protect and save each other all the time.
So, now it is on to the next book -- A Perfect Secret -- featuring perfectly, perfect Christian Amesbury. That is how the brothers always refer to him and I'm sure we'll learn why in this next book.
This is story features Jared and Elise. Jared is the second son who has lived the past three years as a pirate. There is a reason he was a pirate that makes sense as you read the book. He is a "noble" pirate of noble birth.
Elise is a widow who plans for her status to remain unchanged. She has an adorable son and is a devoted mother. Her life is turned upside down when Jared enters her social scene. He shows her that there is more life to be lead and the wonders of romance.
I loved the characters. They are good people with hopes and dreams. There path to finding happiness is rocky and there is some suspense. It makes for a fun and engaging book to read.
Widow Elise would never remarry. Wild Jared would never marry. Hmmm, let's see what happens when we put these two together...
Donna's the writing style is lovely. It's clean and still romantic. There are unexpected twists, her characters are delightful and again, none of the classic arguing/misunderstanding which brings a break-up. Creative ways of bringing tension to the story to keep the reader interested.
I couldn't put it down.
