Come as Evelyn and George must make decisions which affect both of their lives forever. My reviews for regency romance novel, The Duke’s Wicked Wager (1-4 Collection) follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Firstly, I loved having all four books in one collection. Secondly, Thorne easily transitioned from one story-line to the next. As a result, smoothly and with skill crafted each story to end and start at a given point, giving the story-lines cohesiveness.
Thorne’s characters, well-developed and typical of the time period, give the reader a look into the recreational activities as well as the status, structure of family, and inheriting. Giving Evelyn an out spoken attitude, perhaps was not as typical for this time period, however, it gave the story spirit as she and George fence around each other. Adele’s character was perfect as the person who sees all sides, yet, has her own opinion. Don’t get me started on Frederic. He was a dog in the manger character; Throne did a very good job of representing the drunk gad about town playboy of that time period. Frederic was willing to use Evelyn to solve problems of his own making, and then continue on as he had. What a cad! Creating a sweet personality in Adele, the reader also, receives a glimpse into the regency attitudes towards the acting profession.
Finally, in concluding my reviews for regency romance novel, The Duke’s Wicked Wager (1-4 Collection), I found the story-lines did not dragged, transitioned smoothly, and skillfully crafted. I read this book straight through. A clean relaxing regency romance, Thorne’s characters were interesting and believable. Could an actress enter the noble regency home? Whether they could or not, in fiction the author’s allowed leeway with historical facts. I enjoyed my time with these characters and look forward to seeing them again in future books.
