Riveting

Rating By R,09/03/2015

The first book in in the Rakes Of The Caribbean series was just about an okay read mainly because I wasn't overkeen on the heroine Emma and I was debating whether or not to reads this offering but decided to do so as I liked the character of Kitt, the hero here, in the glimpses we saw of him. I'm glad I did because this was a great read. Both Kitt and Bryn were fascinating and endearing characters, the plot was action filled and held your attention although I did feel Kitt was careless in not foreseeing much of what happened! The one thing that didn't sit well with me was the fact that Kitt had given up his reputation for his family - I can't feel they deserved it? - and I would have liked maybe somethomg futher about this at the end. However this was a thoroughly riveting read. Ten out of ten

A Caribbean trilogy

Rating By Julia,09/04/2015

Series Rakes of the Caribbean 1 _ Craving the Rake’s Touch ______ 01/15 ~~~( Benedict and Sarah ) Historical Undone ebook 2 _ Playing the Rake’s Game ______ 01/15 ~~~( Ren and Emma ) 3 _ Breaking the Rake’s Rules ______ 02/15 ~~~( Kitt and Bryn ) This story carries on from ‘Playing the Rake’s Game’. Ren and Emma now married and have given a rum shipment to Kitt Sherard for him to trade for things they needed for the plantation. The trade he has set up was unfortunately an ambush. Kitt saves the rum but is upset at losing the opportunity for his friend Ren. He approaches Ren about it when he gets back. Once in port he is set upon by some men lying in wait. In a bid to escape he climbs onto a balcony then kicks the trellis out, so they could not follow. Kitt was not alone. He was presently surprised by a vision of a lady. In order to stop her from screaming he kisses her. Later on they find out who each one of them are. Kitt is very surprised to find Bryn Rutherford was the Daughter of the man, sent by the crown, to set up a bank in the Caribbean, Bailey Rutherford. He is uneasy about the events and goes to see her father about the bank the next day. A meeting he thought private but found James Selby another prospective investor already there along with Bryn. He was distracted and confused until he spotted something Bryn was doing. He couldn’t help but tease her a little. Everyone who was involved with England were vying for seats and influence on the new Bank-to-be, which made Bryn and her father in much demand. At a reception for the bank, her father unknown to Bryn announces an investment in a plantation that Kitt has never heard off and Bryn was concerned as her father usually talks over these things with her. Kitt goes to investigates and gets more than he bargains for. On the way home after finding his answer his ship is attacked and boarded. Kitt manages to turn the events in his favour and finds that Devore who is one of the rogues from ‘Playing the Rake’s Game’, is trying to kill him. He wants revenge for the events that happened with Ren, Emma and Kitt previously where he lost much. Kitt gets back to Bridgetown and lets Bailey and James know about the island. During this time events take a worrying turn for both Kitt and Bryn. Safe to say that all works out in the end. It is something best read yourself. Kitt surprises everyone with his honesty about his past and although you get to see Ren and Emma a few times in the story they are just by lines and we don’t get to catch up much with them. We find Emma is safe and so is her baby but we don’t find out what it is, a boy or girl, which is an annoying point to the end of the story. I found the read interesting with more aspects covered of life there but the ending was disappointing and being the end of the trilogy, I was expecting a little more from the ending especially where Emma and Ren are concerned. We don’t find out if the bank works, if Ren and Emma come about and we hear nothing of Benedict and Sarah at all. Also James Selby has a big part in the story but we do not find out what happens to him and several other characters that make up a large part of the story. I felt the ending was very lacking in future information for the characters. It needed a lot more details and a rounding off. A real ending was needed as it was a trilogy. In all the ending was disappointing. NOT TO DO WITH STORY OR AUTHOR ABOVE – BUT STILL ANNOYING TO ME Perhaps if Mills and Boon stop stuffing the extracts of other books at the end, there would have been space to finish the story properly. Again another unrelated book and author is highlighted with an extract at the end of the Ebook. WHY oh WHY do they do this to us readers. Especially those on subscriptions who already have all the books in the month already. Also Ebooks are bought on a website that has enough advertising going on that it is a waste of space for those who keep our books and is a waste of time to do within the ebook. PLEASE STOP. It is very annoying and the fact it does not happen in the book version seems a bit unfair on us ebookers.
