If you are familiar with the previous series, I am sure you fell in love with the huge family like I did.
She is a go to author for me when I need a fix of historical romance.
Tracy Cooper-Posey takes us into the staid yet surprisingly bawdy Victorian Era where appearance is everything and secrets are held inside the family.

Married in haste, to the wrong man…
Blanche wed Lieutenant Colonel Seymour in search of a hero to replace the French military father she never knew, only to find herself stranded in Northumberland, in a penniless marriage, with no recourse.
Blanche’s cousin, Neil Williams, now a decorated Major, returns from the colonies to rejoin the Fifth Northumberland Fusiliers. Her husband, as Neil’s superior officer, makes Neil’s life intolerable, as well as her own. Blanche learns that the truly courageous are defined by their actions and that Seymour is not one of them, for what he does to Neil defies imagination…
This book is the tenth book in the Scandalous Scions series, bringing together the members of three great families, to love and play under the gaze of the Victorian era’s moralistic, straight-laced society.

So realistic that I felt like I was there. Such a great story and setting. And historical accuracy! I don’t know how Tracy Cooper-Posey does it.
The relationships between the characters, their actions and attitudes reminds me of people who I have met throughout my life. Some were like Seymour, and others like Neil. Ashes of Pride is an engaging story that you will not be able to put down.
Ashes of Pride is the 10th instalment in the Scandalous Scions series, and how the author manages to keep it fresh, it still amazes me.
This story of Blanche and Neil and how they found each other in the most terrible circumstances. I love how Blanche comes through not as a spoiled brat for having rushed a very important decision but as a more mature woman as a result. Very empathetic, indeed. It can totally be relatable to the present day.
Moreover, I'm very eager how other plots are getting to a conclusion too, such as Lilly, can't wait to see her retribution. Just give it a go already 😉
Having read all the books leading up to this one, I am so looking forward to see how much trouble can be dropped into this loving & so friendly family, who have their yearly meets together with everyone.
