Wow, that's bad. I like Lyn Stone, but hers was very weak - an orphan promised to wed, especially in medieval times, seems unlikely to have been left there for so long, for one thing. And lots of stupid misunderstandings, like the boy. Then the regency one - yeah right, she would conspire to thus ruin her reputation. She'd have to be even stupider and more - reckless? unthinking? - than she's depicted. And that her brother and her betrothed would go along with it... and... ghahh. There are no words. And the last one, set in the Wars of the Roses, is the stupidest of all. She jumps to conclusions, he and her brother are both utter idiots - 'I won't tell her what her husband did, but I will say that he was killed by a famous knight on our, and supposed to be his, side… and leave it at that'. Plus the utterly gratuitous sex scene at the end. She may be a widow, but! It took me forever to get through this, because every time I put it down I didn't want to pick it up again. But I needed to read them all to be sure I could happily get rid of it and wouldn't regret it - now I'm sure. Whew, free! ( )
