The first story, Affaire Royale, was so-so. It didn't really grab me in a big way, since it was pretty easy to figure out who the kidnappers were and how the story was going to end. It's not enough to get me to read the rest of the series.
This was such a great book as it had all three stories of the Cordina family. It was enough detail to fall in love right along with the characters but straight and to the point so it was not a long dragged out story line. It had romance, action and drama. I sure wish it had more sequels. Good read.
