As it was in “The Daughters of Allamont Hall”, besides the focus on love and finding your place in the world for the main characters - and sometimes some supporting characters as well - there is a little mystery that Mary Kingswood develops over the course of the series. In the Allamont series it was the question about who would inherit Allamont Hall and what happened to the daughters’ lost brothers. In this “Sons of the Marquess” series, it is the question what happened to their father’s fabulous wealth, where is the money, and what other surprises did he leave that might turn up at every corner? Then, each book in itself has a nice specific problem, secret, surprise. “Lord Augustus” fits right into this series, and I loved the story. Interesting new people have turned up, that made me chuckle, and their interactions kept me beautifully enchanted.
Regency Romance is usually not meant to draw an accurate historical picture. (If you want nearer-to-life historical novels, there are excellent ones around, but that is a different type of book). Having said that, these are some signs for me of good quality for any novel set in the past: No artificial modernizing of characters and culture - yes, these people believe in the colonial system and in hunting tigers or elephants, and shunning unwed mothers; something more than just a love story but a story as well about a family and the relationship between its members; proper sentences and some sign of proofreading. The “Sons of the Marquess” so far have these characteristics, indeed the “Lord Augustus” is at least as good as “Lord Humphrey”, I am now waiting for the next in line already!
Mary Kingswood has become one of my favorite authors because her books are just so much fun. I was enthralled by the Allamont sisters series and this series takes off from that one.a bit of mystery, a romance and well-developed characters added to creative plot development make for fine reading.
‘Lord Augustus’ takes us further along the story with Gus just horsing around until he meets Amaryllis and her son Ned. I have seldom read a romance with a child as a main character, but Ned was so well done that I wished I could hug him.
All in all, a most entertaining and delightful regency romp.
I received an ARC copy of the book for my honest review.
