I give all the stories five stars, as they're amazing and well-structured. I enjoy Lord John immensely and he really gets to shine in his novellas and shorts. The Brotherhood of the Blade and The Scottish Prisoner are the standouts here, but each story gives us excellent background and insight to this complex character. I cannot praise the stories enough. As there are already thousands of reviews for the stories out there, I'll focus mainly on the formatting issue.
I give the formatting of this bundle three stars. As anyone familiar with this series already knows, Lord John and the Hand of Devils includes three short stories. Within The Hand of Devils, they're in chronological order. However, once you add Private Matter and Brotherhood of the Blade, they are not. This bundle would have been the perfect opportunity to put all these shorts and novellas in chronological order for the reader. Unfortunately, they chose not to do that, so those who do want to read the stories in order will have to go back and forth. There is no easy way to do this either. The main TOC lists the main titles only. You have to go to the Hand of Devils to get to that book's TOC to jump to the desired short. Still, I suppose it's better than having to leave one ebook entirely to go to three other ebooks, which is the only thing saving this format from getting 1-star.
Chronological order of titles and their location numbers (at least, on my Kindle):
LJ & The Hellfire Club (1756) - Location 4963
LJ & The Private Matter (June 1757) - Location 80
LJ & The Succubus (Autumn 1757) - Location 5579
LJ & The Brotherhood of the Blade (Jan 1758) - Location 9747
LJ & The Haunted Soldier (Nov 1758) - Location 7328
The Scottish Prisoner (1760) - Location 17651
The author unquestionably is so gifted...but for me she just missed it on these books.
I will read more of Diana's books because she writes like most people breathe...effortlessly.
These are only my thoughts...I devoured The Outlander series.
