One Wicked Winter Another wonderful regency romance from Ms LeechIn Book 6 of Rogues Gentlemen not only do we meet delightful new characters but are reacuainted with several old favorites from the previous books In Edward Greyston the Maruess whom we met in Book 5 Ms Leech has constructed a complex fascinating and tortured character perfectly descriptive of what we know today to be PTSD Having survived Waterloo Edward believes he should have died with his men and has a lion's share of survivor's guilt in addition to the trauma of living with what he has seen He's understandably terrified to care for anyone or let anyone get close and it will take much than a swooning simpering debutante to break through the wall he's built around his very soulFortunately Belinda Belle Holbrook is no such thing Although she never intended to ensnare the Maruess She is well up to the task of mending Edward's fractured mind Desperate to make a match before her greedy aunt throws her and her sister out in the street or worse Belle sets her cap for The uiet and unassuming Lord Percy Nibley but Edward will not allow his friend to be so trapped and instead finds himself caughtThe story that follows is a captivating read and a truly remarkable journey I would recommend this book to any fan of historical fiction and any fan of romance The author has penned one of the finest and most accurate depictions of PTSD I have ever read Back then nobody knew what to make of the malady Maruess Edward returns from the battle of Waterloo in the throes of PTSD Big strong unpredictable and frightening He is accidently compromised with Belle a guest at his house party Regency house parties often went on for weeks at a time He has no intention of getting to know his new wife but Belle has other ideas Join this relationship as Belle attempts to pull Edward out of his insanity She realizes and knows in her heart that there is a wonderful man worth loving somewhere inside The battle of Waterloo was one of the most horrifying slaughters of men and horses in the history of warfare so as a Vietnam Vet I could identify with Edward I've found a new top shelf author having now read six of her offerings Each one is fascinating in portraying moods colorful characters and the complexities of falling in love with someone who is decidedly different Now on to the next in this attractive series Each story in the Rogues and Gentlemen series is a stand alone although still linked but the stories are so superlative that this incurable romantic is now poised for the next one Blackmailed by his sister into giving a Christmas house party to celebrate her recent marriage Edward Greyston Maruess of Winterbourne is uite certain the next few days will be an utter nightmare Nightmares however are something Edward is all too familiar with After the bloody battle of Waterloo he has returned from the war a changed man full of rage and guilt Suspecting one of his house guests the bluestocking Belinda

Winterbourne's frozen heart and she's prepared to be wicked to do it Now We’re TalkingI’ll start off by saying there are two things I don’t like Regency Romances and starting a series in the middleRegency Romances are not my cup of teathey never have been From the cardboard characters to the gratuitous sex scenes to the painfully obvious plot devices my blue stocking brain had no as in zero time for them If someone recommended a book with a bare chested man or half dressed woman or both on the cover I’d politely but firmly decline This book has changed my mind FINALLY a heroine with a backbone and a brain And a hero that is far from perfect I’d say but I’m afraid I’d give out some spoilers another thing I’m not fond ofThe main characters are very well developed as are some of the secondary ones It’s obvious to tell which ones appeared in previous novels as their backstories were only alluded to but somehow without reading the earlier books I got a very clear picture of who they were and what they were made of The lesser characters Aunt Grimble comes to mind were of the cardboard variety but I didn’t mind once they served their purpose they were removedI think what I loved best about this book was its realistic depiction of marriage It’s not all promises and roses longing glances across ballrooms and romantic horse rides into the sunset It’s arguments misunderstandings surprises and little realizations that somehow you ended up with the perfect person for youAll in all a fantastic book by a clever author I’m seriously thinking about searching my local library for the other book in this series Very Good 💙💛💙 My first time reading this author’s work and enjoyed it very much Great storylines and interesting and believable characters Didn’t want Edward and Belle’s story to end and have already purchased the next in series Belle’s sister Crecy’s book #7 Emotional and touchingThis was an emotional and touching love story that dealt with the mental problems caused by war Edward the Maruees of Winterbourne had lived through the war but the images of the deaths of his men and the guilt he felt at surviving while they had died were tormenting him Edward used to be a happy cheerful and well liked gentleman but the war had changed him to a reclusive and ornery man who just wanted to be left alone Agreeing to have a house party to please his sister Edward remains aloof wishing only for the gathering to be done so he can be alone once Belle is hoping to find a husband during the party as her and her sister have been living with their terrible Aunt who has threatened to throw Belle out if she doesn't find herself a husband Unwilling to leave her half sister at their Aunts mercy Belle sets her sites on one man only to find herself caught in a compromising position with Edward the Maruees of Winterbourne Edward thought only to save a gentleman from being compromised into marriage and ended up compromised himself The struggles that Belle went through to help Edward with his emotional problems were depicted very well and I felt her frustration My heart just went out to Edward for the horrors he had seen and the guilt he felt as well as the fear of losing those he loved I cheered every victory that Belle had with Edward and enjoyed every minute of their story This is book #6 in this series and I have read them all can you tell I love them? The women are strong and cunning not afraid to do what has to be done to either snag a man or make him come around to her way of thinkingEdward Greyston is a man who can't let go of the nightmares from the war At first he was presumed dead but had amnesia of sorts and really didn't know who he was His sister heard that he might still be alive book #5 read my review hereand runs away from home to find him She does and brings him home but he is withdrawn and does not like company but he does love his sister so agrees to a party to be held in honor of her marriage He dreads itBelinda Holbrook has good reason to want to find a husband and uickly Her aunt has threatened to throw her out and she is worried for her little sister Belinda and Edward are like oil and water He figures out that she is about to trick one of his unsuspecting friends into marriage he steps in and gets caught himselfBelinda is no wilting flower and proceeds to make the best of this marriage to Edward it takes nerves of steel and the flaunting of unladylike behavior I believe that you will really enjoy this tale It can be read as a stand alone but I think you will enjoy the entire seriesI received an ebook copy of this book for enjoyment and possible review Very boring bookThey were hardly together in the book and their conversations were glossed over Only sex scenes were there I don't know how out of the blue they fell in loveAtleast the author didn't romanticise PTSDwhich was the saving grace of this book Unfortunately there was way too much telling so much it ruined what would have a been a great book with a wonderfully grumpy H He has PTSD and he's rude demanding and boxes with his valet The h is desperate to marry to save herself and her beautiful but odd sister He allows the h to compromise them but the pacing was off so where we needed details we didn't get followed up with pages of descriptions The h is a little too perfect knew so much about things she shouldn't which should have made her interesting but missed the mark at first She did improve significantly towards the end Overall the book was OK with tedious details
