Each book in the series features one of the five Farrington brothers.
Book one features first son Gabriel Farrington, who is the current Duke of Calgarth. His love interest is Evelyn Godfrey, who is slated to be married to Richard Cunningham, heir to the Horndean duchy.
Book two features Hugh Farrington, the second son, who is interested in Miss Serena Edison.
Book three features third son Lucas Farrington, who falls for Davina Marfort. Unfortunately, she is also the daughter to the Cunningham's attorney who lives on the property.
Book four features the fourth son Spencer Farrington, who can't live without Lady Clarissa.
Book five features the fifth and youngest son Phillip Farrington, who just must have Cordelia Cunningham. Yeah, no problem there.
For the most part, this was an okay/likable series. The following are my likes and dislikes.
The writing was good.
The period descriptions and dialogue were believable and included humor.
All of the stories were clean – free of sex or vulgar language.
The characters were developed and likable or unlikable, as intended.
I could feel the chemistry between the couples who fell in love.
The underlying story about the feud was interesting, especially in book five. The feud story is what kept me reading each book.
All the books were well proofed. I only noticed a few errors.
There was a mild amount of angst and just a bit of suspense.
The larger back story needed a more detailed and satisfying conclusion. An issue at the forefront was left unresolved.
The individual love stories had the worst endings. Although each had its own epilogue, each also ended essentially the same way. Ditto endings to all five love stories is not what I want to read.
Lastly, each story could have been so much better with a bit more angst, suspense, drama, etc. It was almost as if there was a word limit that had to be met.
For me, this was a 3.5 read.
Introducing the "Regency Fire" Series - Discover NOW The New Regency Romance Series by Bridget Barton!
Lovely - Romantic - Exciting!
In the Summer of 1797, a young woman is found hanging from a great beam in the library of Calgarth Hall. Seemingly betrayed by the only man she has ever loved, Verity Farrington took her own life on the very day he was set to marry another.
It was a tragic event which was to blight the lives of all within the great Duchies of Calgarth and Horndean. It would turn two of the closest friends into the bitterest of all imaginable enemies and blight the lives of their families for three decades to come.
Nearly thirty years later, the new Duke of Calgarth, Gabriel Farrington, seeks to lead his younger brothers into battle. The old Duke is dead and he has charged his oldest son with the heaviest of duties; the bitter feud between the two great households must persist at any cost. With his own mother so desperate to see the end of the pain and hatred, Gabriel Farrington remains steadfast.
In the Duchy of Horndean, the Old Duke clings to life, presiding over the family he has raised in bitterness. With his scheming wife and daughter his most powerful assets, the Duke sees out the last of his days. But will his own guilt finally catch up with him? And will the truth finally be revealed, smashing the foundations of lies upon which the feud was built?
In amongst the hate, anger, and retribution, will the younger generation of Farringtons and Cunninghams ever find the peace and love they all secretly crave?
Five stories concerning two feuding families involved in a bitter feud for thirty-five years! The story is set in the wild, windswept north of England, with other action occurring in London.
The Collection Includes the Following:
The Duke and the Stolen Bride
The Lord she could not Trust
The Lord and the Attorney’s Niece
The Lord, The Lady, and a Time to Choose
The Descendants and a Time of Hope
I had previously read and reviewed parts one through four of this five part series.
All of the parts are short and all except for the last one have cliffhanger endings.
Part five finally brings us to a realization of what caused the rift between the families and how the feud began.
Finally we have our answer and it is vaguely surprising but maybe not all that much.
I gave book five a 4.25 of 5 star rating for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 2 of 5 flames. It is sweet and clean without sexual interaction between the hero and heroine but we do realize there is a feeling of love between these two.
