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?
He later learned from a maternal uncle of his mother's love and devotion after she passed away.
. He went through many emotional ups and downs but through strength and the help of his realm brothers he became whole again, found himself, found respect which in reality he never lost from his realm brothers. Through strength he got through it all! He found the love of his life from a woman who worked for him and his wife's companion. He endured more than any other realm brother and got what all the others had and that was love of a wife and family!
Thank you for a great adventure with the realm brothers and their families. Love of God, family, honor, and country is what they strived for and received in the end!
