review 1: This is the first I read from this author.I am looking for different kind of story, well I am not certain if this story fits it. It started nicely, It is fast paced and very funny. I found myself laughing during reading the story. I thought the story is about the Bascombe's sisters from America. Well I got disappointed that it is not about, although they are a big part of the series. It is very hard for to put my feelings to this book. I liked that characters of story, especially one of the sisters Cam. For heroine, independent and loved her sisters. She sometimes very frustrating, the conflict and tag of war between her and hero some what annoying already. One they kiss and about to make love and fight and argue and again kiss. What a cycle! It really got me bored and alm... moreost I don't want to finish the book. I don't understand why some story is like this, it is better to face your fear and gamble everything than waiting for something that will happen to you to realize you love a person. Which is always occur towards at the end part of the story.While I am reading I am already debating if I will read the other 2 books, and if I should give 2 1/2 stars or 3 stars. I am settling for 3 stars because even if I had frustrations and some part really got me bored. I still had quite laughs for the easy banters that characters had. Maybe in time I will pick again from this series, but not right after finishing this book. :)
review 2: Somehow this book was buried on my To Be Read bookshelf and has been sitting, forgotten, for almost 2 years! When I discovered it again, I read the back book summary and happily dove into the tale.Four sisters travel from America in search of their grandfather. Their mother has recently died and they no longer feel safe living above the tavern owned by their stepfather. They escape to find a new and a better life and a family connection. Mary, being the oldest, leads her three younger sisters, Rose, Camellia and Lily on this journey. When they find themselves on the docks in London they are out of their element, lost and more than discouraged. But when things seem to go from bad to worse, they meet an unlikely hero in Sir Royce Winslow. He takes the young and intriguing Bascombe girls under his wing and soon discovers an unexpected connection. This book was really quite excellent. I am sorry that it sat collecting dust for so long. Immediately I was immersed in the story and invested in its characters. Mary and her crazy American sisters were humorous and they inspired affection. I really connected with the characters and I was only a few pages into the story when the author elicited the first tears from my eyes. I really got emotional with this story and when Mary gets her feelings hurt, I found myself sharing in her pain.The chemistry between Royce and Mary is electric and watching them fight their feelings and flounder in their romance was an experience. The author wrote Royce as a compassionate, alpha male. He’s sexy and loveable, but at times completely clueless on how to deal with women and relationships. I found myself alternating between feeling sorry for him and wanting to smack him upside the head. But all the while I adored him.I loved how these girls took on the aristocratic English world and made their place among them. They never strayed far from their spirited ways but learned to adapt without losing themselves. This book made me laugh and made me cry and mostly it made me want to read more. I went ahead and ordered the last two books in this series and I know they will not sit around long enough to collect dust. Cherise Everhard, March 2012 less
