I liked the all-female smuggling ring in The Raven's Lady although it didn't seem plausible. And too much seemed to be crammed into the story too fast; perhaps it should be longer.
Kidnapped to Freedom seems to be a fantasy. It has some realism (the brutality of American slavery), but I just didn't believe the way Phoebe is rescued. I had a heck of a time keeping the characters straight; it took me a while to match the nicknames with the real names.And I couldn't keep the "massas" who took advantage of Phoebe straight without going back to the beginning.
All That Glisters was the opposite of The Raven's Lady for me--it seemed to move too slowly and to be too long. However, I was intrigued by Rose's situation with the abusive, religious fanatic uncle and the goodhearted cousin who appears. Unlike Kidnapped to Freedom, it seemed completely realistic to me. I would have liked a little more dramatic climax.
I loved The Prisoners of Wyvern Castle. From the beginning I was eager to learn how an earl could be forced to marry and why. I thought the hero and heroine were sweet. I don't think I've ever read a love scene with two virgins before. It's well done. If the heroine's age is mentioned, I missed it, and I was curious about that. My only real complaint is the ending seemed abrupt. In fact, when I reached a page saying "The End" I went back, thinking I'd skipped a few pages. I hadn't. If you're reading quickly, you might even miss what happened to Lady Wyvern and her lover. I am looking forward to reading the next book.
I did not notice a single typo in this one!
Three Short Stories and a Novella
The following stories are like a sampler pack for the author's writing. The stories were written for winners of a contest. They gave some names and ideas and the author wrote these stories from them.
The Raven's Lady
Felix Maddox returns home after he was thought dead. Under a false name he has one last job...find a smuggler, the Black Fox. Could the villain actually be the girl he left behind eight years ago?
All That Glisters
Thomas O'Bryan is in New Zealand on business. When he stops in to pay his respects to his aunt, he finds a bitter couple and a beautiful young woman. He would love to remove Rose from her unhappy situation but they are too different. Or are they?
Kidnapped to Freedom
Phoebe has missed several chances of being rescued from the plantation she is a slave on. She has one more chance to be reunited with her siblings and perhaps the young man she once loved. If she can remember that love instead of the handsome pirate that has come to her rescue.
The Prisoners of Wyvern Castle
I really enjoyed this novella. It has the villains that you'd more than happily lop their heads off of. The hero that nabs your heart the moment you know his story. Not to mention the romance between Rupert and Madeline and the chasm they have to cross for their happily-ever-after.
Everything from a “dead” viscount who secretly works for the crown investigating smugglers only to find that his childhood friend is among those labeled as a smuggler – a female smuggler. When the one he is looking for comes looking for her can he protect her? When he reveals his true identity can she forgive him? Will a raven prove to be their saviour?
To a tale of a slave & her break to freedom & the mysterous pirate who helps her escape. To New Zealand & tales of gold. Can the owner of a mining supply company rescue the damsel who is below the status of servant in her religious uncle’s home?
The novella is a prequel to the upcoming Embracing Prudence. An earl held captive by his vengeful half sister & the woman he is forced to wed. A woman forced to wed by her power hungry half brother. Can these two make a go of their marriage while being held as prisoners? A beautiful, hopeful story.
These stories are an excellent sampling of Ms. Knight’s writing style. A writing style that holds a little something for everyone. I, for one, am looking forward to exploring more of her books and know that I will enjoy every one.
Such interesting and unique characters-a raven, a blind hero, a pirate and a success in the gold rush. Each story is unique and offers a sample of Jude's wonderful writing and imagination.
My favorite was The Prisoners of Wyvern Castle. Since it is a prequel to Embracing Prudence, a 2016 release, I am excited for the continuing story.
