Unforgettable Rouge: This is the second book in Annette Blair's Rouge series, and though I had read the first, I had never bothered to look up any of the others. I am really glad it was included here, and have now had my interest piqued enough to read the rest of them. Blair's writing was charming and funny, and I loved the way that Alex and Bryce found their way back to one another. I especially loved Alex and her crazy schemes to seduce her husband. The scene with the arrows in the attic had me laughing out loud. This book also had a very strong cast of supporting characters that I fell in love with.
A Lady by Chance: This was my least favorite of the bunch. I found Anna and Charles a little immature, and the way they handled situations to be a wee bit tedious. It also bothered me that after a very nasty introduction and Anna manipulating Charles into a marriage neither of them particularly wants, they seem to fall madly in love after consuming said marriage. Despite my reservations about the MC's however, I didn't think this book was a complete loss. The supporting characters managed to save it for me. Especially Morgie and Lydia. In fact I kinda wish they had been the main focus and Charles and Anna had been two characters bumbling around in the background. I also enjoyed the sisters and their quests to find husbands. I have read and enjoyed Cheryl Bolen's books in the past, but this one was a little bit of a miss for me.
Salt Bride: As I mentioned in the beginning of my review, I am a big fan of Lucinda Brant. I love her Roxton series, and was eager to read this one. I may have enjoyed this one even more, which is saying quite a lot, as the Roxton series are some of my favorite historical romances. It did take me a bit to warm up to Salt's character, as he is pretty awful to Jane in the beginning, but once you learn the reason behind it he becomes a much more sympathetic character. As two former lovers who had been torn apart by malevolent forces four years prior to the start of the book, I really enjoyed that they were able to slowly make their way back to each other as they, and the reader gradually learn the full truth of what had happened to them and who was behind it. The conclusion was tense and emotional, and had me on the edge of my seat. Not that it was all doom and gloom, there were quite a few exchanges that had me laughing out loud, and some very tender moments between the hero and heroine. This book had a very strong cast of supporting character's, as well as a truly vile vilainess. This was my favorite of the four, and I definitely recommend it. I'm dying to read the sequel now!
Scandalous Virtue: This was the first time I had read Brenda Hiatt, but this book was so good I've already downloaded a second. I loved this story about a recently reformed scoundrel trying desperately to repair his ruined reputation, and a repressed young widow trying desperately to have a little scandalous fun. Both Jack and Nessa were strong, likeable characters, and I wanted them both to find a way to get what they wanted.
UNFORGETTABLE ROGUE: This story caught me right away, the hero was someone I would have liked to have met and the heroin was someone I thought would be a great friend. Both flawed but so perfect for each other. Excellent!! The cast of characters was a very well thought out cast. Everyone has their part to play in this story and the writing made them all seem like people you would like to have known.
A LADY BY CHANCE: I really enjoyed the way these characters interacted with each other. They seem to be fighting every basic instinct so that they don't have to admit that a marriage of convenience could be more. Excellent writing again, descriptive but not overly so, well thought out and flowing.
SALT BRIDE: This story was fantastic! The plot twists and the characters came together in a wonderful way and made want to read more. I had to know how it all turned out. I knew there would be happiness, but how would it all come about. Great characters!! And as I said, I had to stop here and get Salt Redux, and it was fantastic as well!
SCANDALOUS VIRTUE: The characters in this story were very easy to imagine. I loved Nessa, she was perfect all together! The interactions with her rake were really well written. I also enjoyed the descriptions of the settings. Very well done!
All in all, I would definitely recommend this set to anyone who loves good characters, great writing, and a few plot twists. I will admit that these 4 ladies are among my favorite authors so it was not hard to read any of their books! They all share the common love of the genre and it shows through in their work. Each one a different perspective, but still of the same period. Each one weaves a story for you to tuck into like a good ragout. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
I was happy to receive an advanced reader copy of this set.
