CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Foremost, a regency romance, Bennett included suspense in her latest book. The story-line is an intense drama between two sisters trying to win the same man. One sister’s depicted as sweet and caring; the other’s far different. When the Duke sets in motion the sister’s competition for his hand, Alexandra fierce hatred and jealousy for Elizabeth takes over. As a result, Alexandra will do whatever it takes to win. Does that include murder? Will Jonah and Elizabeth break their contract with the two family’s approval? Is there a happy ever after for any of them? Sorry, you will have to read the book to find out.
Containing twists and turns, drama, and family dynamics, I could not put my e Reader down. I actually wanted to shake Alexandra and lock her in her room. However, Bennett had other ideas. As the story progressed, Alexandra became less and less stable; she was a scary character as she was conniving, underhanded, and filled with hatred and jealousy. Furthermore, Bennett developed her characters throughout the story; her writing was clear and easy to follow. Bennett had no need of sex or fluff in her story, as her plotting and characters alone, carried the story-line.
Finally, in concluding my reviews for romance novel, Winning the Indecisive Duke, I found an entertaining easy to read regency romance. With smooth steady pacing, well-developed characters, and a refreshing story-line, I enjoyed my time spent with these characters.
