A great read! Some of the characters are the same from The Lion's Lady and the two of these together are awesome. (Read The Lion's Lady first if you can.)

Before reading "Castles", I suggest to start with "The Lyon's Lady", then "The Guardian Angel", "The Gift" and lastly, read "Castles". The characters in all 4 books are friends/related to each other. It is more fitting if you know each character before reading the next book. If you read it in this order, I think it will bring more excitement as some questions are answered in the later books. Some secrets are also revealed before hence.

This is not the same old Regencies with so much of the story being... The ton... Duke... Earl... Duchess... Marquess... It's something a bit different and I LOVED it. While I do love those stories, here is one that takes an average guy and makes him a Hero. Okay, Maybe Colin's not average, but very likeable. Alessandra is just as likeable. I especially like that she was so intelligent. I laughed outloud and loved this little tale.

This is the only book series by Julie Garwood that I have read and was quite appalled. I read her Highlander series, and they are really great!!! especially Ranson and the Bride..... But this one!!! Rarely have I ever met a book so god-awful I wanted to shoot myself in the face before I could finish. This one takes the proverbial cake. When the hero and heroine talk through their first sexual encounter (and I finally stopped deluding myself that the story would pick up)--- The writing itself was not very good at all. There was extreme word overuse. The story was even worse. Alesandra is made out to be a rich, bumbling dullard who cries every single second (I hate that in female). Don't give me wrong, I think it's good for female to cry once in awhile but not on every other pages of the book. Colin is the suave and intelligent one who laughs at her mistakes. It makes me sick, because this is basically all the book is about. I do not recommend this as any sort of reading material, serious or just for fun.

Excellent book, the story is so engrossing, love the characters. You can so imagine the setting with the wonderful descriptions, has characters from previous books and that is great. You are really connected to them. Garwood is one of my favorite authors, she really makes the story come alive. A must read don't miss book.

Princess Alesandra has been happily tucked away in a convent, but in 1820 the wicked General Ivan indicates that he has designs on the princess: if he marries her, he can take over the kingdom. Alesandra's guardian, the Duke of Williamshire, brings her to England to assure her safety. Unfortunately, the duke and his wife become afflicted with a "mysterious ailment"; the only solution is for the princess to live with Colin, the duke's eligible bachelor son, in his London townhouse. The duke and duchess think Colin should marry Alesandra. Colin, however, wants no part of marriage; and Alesandra, who alternates between moments of intelligence and sheer vacancy, will marry anyone who won't hand her over to that awful Ivan fellow. When Alesandra is almost abducted by men from her homeland, Colin's protective instincts shift into high gear. Can love be far behind? Also lurking in the background is a serial killer, who threatens Alesandra but serves no immediate purpose in furthering the silly plot.

I love how Julie Garwood makes me, as a reader, laugh while I'm reading her books. Truly a gem among all other romance writers. This is a continuation of a series, and sadly, I don't own those.
