My my my!! When it comes time for a little "ME" time, there is nothing that reading can't help you through. Image yourself curled up with a bottle of wine, an assortment of chocolates, and your favor place to be with a good book; maybe with soft classical music in the background. Sounds heavenly right?
That describes my lil' spot of happiness. When the world is too lonely, too blue, too small or just too much overall; my solution is Reading! I can go where ever I want with a a book in my hands. This has always been my way.
With 2388 pages in this box set, I was swept away to my happy place. This was in fact my "calgon" sort of reading. I was able to throw myself in each story with wild abandonment as I "turned" the pages on my e-reader. There was nothing like the feeling that I had knowing I could tune out the real world around me. With this, set no story seem to drag on beyond it's self. But each story was capable of being different with each other.
Some will have you giggling, snorting even. Then there are those tender moments that make you go "awww" and randomly sighing at times. Some moments would have you wanting to smack some characters and others, you want to give huge hugs to. Now I should warn you that it's possible that even a tear or two can be found gently gliding down your cheek. There is no doubt your emotional meter will run the gambit of feelings. You might find yourself holding your bottom lip as you breathlessly delve deeper and deeper in to the romance you can experience in these historical romances of eras gone by. But I say Go With IT!!!
You will come across several types of leading ladies and gentlemen. There are cute, shy, bold & serious ladies who know what they want. As for those gentlemen we do really have some rouges, cads and possible good for nothings. But you will have to read the set to see who and what is in each one of them. I'll tell no details beyond that then as I have said. The intrigue is exciting, entertaining and of course it's up to you to find out which is which.
So I'm giving this series as a whole 4.5 out of 5 stars my friends.
