Duty, Danger, and Family Drama

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Author

Having read and adored all of Pamela Lynne’s previously published novels (see here for proof), I was elated to learn that she was working on a traditional Regency Romance series. A series that would tell the emotional and turbulent tales of three men from the Granville family and the women who love them. As a reader who loves traditional Regency Romances and on who has great affection for Pamela Lynne’s original character, Viscount Hedley, I was very excited and eager to read a series that includes a whole cast of original characters.

Surrendering the Past, the first book of The Granville Legacy Series, introduces all three Granville men and gives a bit of history on each of their lives, but focuses mostly on Captain Richard Granville. Captain Granville is the second son of the Earl of Litchfield, and their relationship is strained and filled with resentment and mistrust. While he is on leave from the army, the Earl of Litchfield summons Captain Granville to his side in order to announce his upcoming nuptials to an unknown beauty without a fortune. Who is this angel and what duty compels her to marry the evil Earl of Litchfield? Continue reading »

Family PortraitsA Riveting Sequel with Our Dearest Friends!

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Author

(Note: This is a sequel to Pamela Lynne’s Pride and Prejudice variation, Dearest Friends, and it is recommended you read that story prior to reading this one.)

In Dearest Friends, Pamela Lynne shows readers what happens when Darcy and Elizabeth lose the trust, friendship, and support of those closest to them. Darcy and Elizabeth are hurt badly by the betrayal and selfishness actions of those they love, but by chance become reacquainted in London and find friendship, compassion, and something infinitely more dear…true happiness and marital bliss!

And some of Darcy’s and Elizabeth’s friends and family members find happiness in marriage as well. But some do not. One couple is forced to go their separate ways (even though both are in love and wish to marry each other!) and another finds themselves living in an unhappy marriage filled with marital strife and misery. It is these two couples we spend the most time with in Family Portraits. But similar to Dearest Friends, this story includes a large cast with many subplots and switching of storylines. Both books are a rather encompassing and epic family saga! Continue reading »
