The book starts off with a much more detailed rescue of Velvet in Liverpool where Marcus and Cashemere are thrown into very close association. Needless to say, Cashemere has her own ideas of what should be done and takes some initiatives that could have proven disastrous for more than herself. She is not a good team player and the brothers of the Realm find her a bit hard to take regardless of her beauty. Marcus finds Satine much more pleasant and Adrian Kimbolt, Viscount Lexford, is attracted to Cashmere. The twins are attracted to the opposite men and set up a rouse to capture the attention of the gentleman they prefer. All goes well until a neighbor of Uncle Aldridge demands Cashmere as his wife in exchange for the money he has paid Uncle Samuel. Cashmere has been placed under the care of Uncle Charles Morton and lives with her identical twin, Satine. Now the ruse poses a serious problem. Action, angst and love follow the twins and the brothers of the Realm. No spoilers....
Murhad Jamot, Warlord Mir's agent ,is still around and we discover the true Samuel Aldridge. The lady who assists Mrs Aldridge during all the chaos in Scotland is Miss Grace Nelson, the daughter of Baron and Lady Nelson (deceased). She has sought employment as a governess to protect herself from her brother, the current Baron Nelson in Lancashire. She also played a critical role in the rescue of Eleanor Fowler from Sir Louis Levering in book 1.
One wonders about this man Shepherd, who directs the actions of the Realm. We also meet a titled gentleman who participated in the Realm as a young man many years ago . Evidently this organization has been around to assist the English government for multiple generations.
With so many outstanding characters, this series is almost limitless. Each book unveils more and more of the men of the Realm and their journey to the women help them conquer the experiences that haunt them.
Ms Jeffers combines detailed historical knowledge -as evidenced by her casual insertion of time markers such as clothes, customs and clothes - with an engaging cast of characters. Each and every one of the gentlemen who once fought together as a unit in The Realm (a precursor to MI6, one gathers) are people who grab at your heart. Upright, honourable and daring, these men risk everything for the sake of their countries and their loved ones, and it is with crossed fingers that I read of their adventures - and those of their ladies.
A romance would not be a romance without complications separating the earnest admirer and his intended. Repeatedly in this series impediments arise, repeatedly I am left holding my breath as I struggle with the temptation to peek at the end. I must admit to having done so on a number of occasions, but this has in no way detracted from my reading experience, because Ms Jeffers does not deliver the same story twice - the obstacles are very varied and at times quite unsurmountable.
Ms Jeffers writes in multiple POV's allowing us insight into both the gentlemen's and their ladies' heads. I am particularly impressed by Ms Jeffers male POV's, all of them distinct, all of them loveable in their own way - an adjective which I fear would have the gentlemen in question shuddering. As to the ladies, a number of them stick out and I have developed a permanent fondness for the Nelson sisters and Isolde Neville as well as Eleanor Fowler. But the Aldrige sisters... well. I leave it up to future readers to form their own opinion in the matter.
Ms Jeffers writes a fast story. Her prose and dialogue never lose pace. I stumble across a number of minor editing issues, at times there's a word missing or a comma, but it is all forgiven by the fact that I am so totally immersed in the story itself.
While more than happy to know there will be an eight book in the series, I am already feeling somewhat bereaved: what will I do without the gentlemen of The Realm to keep me company?
It shows how the love of one another and the love of England how they live and thrive for one another. They face many adversities along the way, and how they would give their lives for each other.
I loved the way Ms. Jeffers explains each characters flaws and traits, the countryside they travel in and the adventures that makes you live in the novel.
I feel like I know each one of these characters and she does a wonderful job in her writing.
I look forward to the next novel in this series as once I star reding, I can't put the novel down.
Thank you for a adventure that I love!
Love does come to those who wait and trust in each other.
