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 »

With admirable daring and sensitivity, author Christie Capps begins her story with our dear heroine just experiencing a very traumatic and terrifying attack. (Potential readers should be made aware that the attack does not happen on page, but its effects are described – i.e. torn clothing, bruises, emotional damage.) An attack like this sadly, is not implausible for this time period, or for the world we live in now. Lizzy’s proclivities to ramble outside alone, unprotected, and away from visibility place her in a vulnerable situation, just like walking alone at night do in our time. While this is not a story Jane Austen herself would have written, I applaud the Christie Capps for choosing to write a variation in this vein because, in reality, it is something that probably did happen during this time.

Send your unmarried daughters to Pemberley, for that is where they shall find husbands! 😉 In her charming collection of four novellas, Reina Williams explores what happens to some of the unmarried females at the end of Pride and Prejudice – Kitty Bennet, Georgiana Darcy, Mary Bennet, and Maria Lucas. Each story is around 70-80 pages in length and takes place over a short period of time.

I hope you find the following breakdown helpful!
