Wow! It started with Forbidden in the Scandalous Sirens series and I was hooked. The characters continued into the Scandalous Scions series and I was even more engrossed than ever. Tracy Cooper-Posey is amazing. She weaves a story that is sensual, humorous, and suspenseful enough to keep you reading and craving more. Each book is so absorbing that The characters stayed with me even when not reading when I had to force myself to put it down. I feel a part of the Great Family myself. Can't wait to get started on Scandalous Scions II.
These are four intense, at times raunchy, and intriguing historical romances that are rich with the authentic details of Regency England while surprising with the unexpected.
For me, the heart of a great romance is all about the interaction between main characters, which is what each of these romance novels delivers, usually with a wonderful connection that quickly builds to an intense conflagration!
Cooper-Posey has a sophisticated writing style that captures me so that I feel involved in the lives of the characters. I was so moved by one of the stories in particular that I cried happy tears!! I'm totally in love with all of these characters! The women are strong and interesting while the men have depth too!
The social and moral strictures of the times are well laid out as a framework to the unfolding story for each set of main characters. Cooper-Posey recreates the lifestyle and setting of the Victorian Era beautifully with enough detail to set the scene without boring details getting in the way.
Each novel of the Scandalous Scions series is fantastic!!! I highly recommend this box set to get you started and urge you to read all the series in their correct reading order.
Rose of Ebony– 5 stars **********
A Delightful Glimpse of Intrigue yet to Come
We meet Raymond as he goes to his family's annual gathering. For a time each year both adult and child will mix despite the traditions of the ton.
Raymond should be in mourning, as his wife has died. It was a loveless marriage and the constraints of London have become too much. At the family home he is allowed a distraction.
Short teaser of what is yet to come... Written in typical Cooper-Posey flair; we relate to each character and get glimpses of the mystery and intrigue to come.
Soul of Sin 5 stars **********
This Glimpse into history is a searing version of a time gone by….
Lady Natasha lost the love of her life Seth four years ago, and still has not started to live again. Lord Marblethorpe had a mysterious prior love, but under family pressure married Rose, who is now deceased. These two characters find common ground in their grief, survivor’s guilt and the gap between what they feel and what society expects them to feel.
We are treated to an intricate maze of social mores, family support and matters of the heart; which will both astonish and entertain. If you have not read book #1 “Rose of Ebony” I highly recommend it. You will not be “lost” by starting here, but the story will be more enjoyable with the groundwork set in book #1. (Written when reviewing separate stories – you will not have this issue in the boxset!!)
Valor of Love– 5 stars **********
Delightful Historical Romance!!
Thomsett is the family butler now – but he was once an officer fighting in the Crimea War decorated with the Victoria Cross. Lily suffered earlier in her life, but for much of the story we do not know how, just how it affects her. When these two are able to empathize with each other’s trials, a bond is formed that is unusual in the society of the day.
This family does not necessarily follow social norms, they allow children to speak and hug in public. So just maybe there could be something between these socially different people.
It is such a delight to read about this family; even the trials and of course the triumphs. When danger requires extreme measures you will be on the edge of your seat until you have devoured every word. Ms. Cooper-Posey brings characters to life in such a way that you feel as if you too are a member of the family. A terrific read.
Marriage of Lies– 5 stars **********
Ms. Cooper-Posey weaves a compelling story of Mystery, Romance and Impossible Choices!!
Sharla is in a loveless marriage; to the Duke of Wakefield. Ben is a commoner whose life has taken a downturn when the love of his life Sharla married another. After years of staying away from family gatherings to not run into each other, each has returned for the annual gathering.
The author sends us under the skin and into the minds of each of these characters. All are trying to maintain proper decorum (which is somewhat unlike family norms) yet are desperately unhappy. I could see no possible resolution, and when I thought I was onto the answer this creative author proved me wrong.
Enjoy a raucous return to the childhood habit of pranks, feel the desperation of our characters and be amazed at the stunning conclusion provided within these pages.
