This is the fifth of the Boscastle series & first I've ready. I enjoyed this book very much and will read the previous books in the series. In order those books are: 'The Seduction Of An English Scoundrel', 'The Love Affair Of An English Lord', 'The Wedding Night Of An English Lord', & 'The Wicked Games Of A Gentleman'.
This was a continuation of a fun read series. It's nice when you get to see all the characters take on a life of their own in each book. It's also cool when there are references to past characters and you get to say, "Oh, I remember her."
I'm still unclear how this series was branded a trilogy when there are nine books to it, but...
All in all I would suggest starting with Book 1 and working your way through the entire set. They're all very good reads.
Jillian Hunter writes amazingly realistically, down-to-earth dialogue, and even the way people say things, with certain feelings. She describes characters' actions so well, it's like watching a movie in my head. As for this story, just another great, steamy favorite that's going in my favorites' shelf!
