I really enjoyed reading this latest tale in the Knickerbocker Club series. It helps to have read the earlier books, but it's not necessary to do so. I received an ARC from the publisher and NetGalley, but all opinions are my own.
Like the other books in this series, there is no lack of adventure and sexually intimate moments. The action is fairly fast-paced and I liked how the complexity of the characters was slowly revealed. I did feel that the baser instincts of these two main characters got in the way of the action at times. Secondary characters were great as well. I loved the strong and quiet Hugo while Tom Davies and Monty Fields were perfectly drawn characters for the time period.
Note: This mass paperback edition also contains the printed version of the novella TYCOON, previously only available as an ebook.
There were a few things that set this boom apart from other historical romances: the period and setting (1880s New York), the hero having been raised by missionary parents in China, and a fairly complicated plot that involves a former slave, a rags to riches millionaire, a wealthy debutante, and two chinese women who are in love with men their culture considers inappropriate.
I loved every minute of this book. It had steamy love scenes as well as complex characters. Not many authors can weave three love stories into one novel in a way that keeps the pages turning without confusion about who is in love with whom, and how all these story lines relate.
This is definitely a keeper, and I loved Tycoon, which was included as a bonus. The only thing I don't like is that my knickerbocker reading binge is over!
I've been waiting for this book. The plot was very intriguing. I honestly feel in love with all the characters, especially Emmett and Calvin.
This is my first time reading the Gilded Age. I find that I enjoying reading from
this period. This period feels very modern.
I can wait for your new series. It's too bad it's isn't going to be published until the latter part of 2017. I guess I do read pretty fast.
