At about the time of Aidan's return to Lexington Arms from his injury, Mercy and Grace Nelson run away (separate events) from the dangerous and letcherous conditions at their home estate, Foresthill Hall, under the rule of their brother, Baron Geoffery Nelson. Grace's story is in book 4.
Mr Hill, who pledged to serve Aidan for 10 years in payment for Aidan saving his life, finds Mercy Nelson (Mary Purefoy) sitting on a fence style on a dark road in a icy rainstorm. Mary appears to be a lady of breeding and full of personal resolve, even if she was an innocent waiting for destruction. She had been on her trek to London for six days.. She was cold, hungry and without hope. Mr. Hill was impressed with her strength of character and convinces her to come to Lexington Arms with him as Aidan's cousin (to Aidan she was presented as a blow-by of the late Earl). This only covers the first 3% of the book but sets up the drama and intrigue in this compelling adventure that eventually ends in a HEA. The final reveal of all that transpired at Lexington Arms is astounding.
Regina Jeffers is a master author to be able keep so many strong characters in play at the same time during this amazing series. I encourage all readers to give book one, A Touch of Scandal, a try. I believe most of you will be hooked like I am and won't be able to stop until the final is book is finished. (MA)
Lord Lexford recovered physical from his injuries, however he can not remember the last two years. He is torment by his first wife, Susan, who married Aidan's brother Andrew. He is afraid to love again until he meet Mercy. There are some unexplained happening at the estate. Those happening involved a so call ghost, fire, mystery visitor. Not until a family's secret is revealed that Aidan can find peace.
I read the realm series, I highly recommend the series. I also recommend to read the books one after another.
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?
