    Instagram Twitter FacebookPinterestI can t stop staring at the way that the box set is positioned in this photo because if you look at it from the side, it kind of looks like historical menage, with the dark haired woman slowly edging in one the red haired woman and the dark haired man, like, I want in on that action Is there room for oneOnly it s kind of creepy to think about, because that woman is her godmotheron that.ROYAL PRINCES OF RUTHENIA is a duo Instagram Twitter FacebookPinterestI can t stop staring at the way that the box set is positioned in this photo because if you look at it from the side, it kind of looks like historical menage, with the dark haired woman slowly edging in one the red haired woman and the dark haired man, like, I want in on that action Is there room for oneOnly it s kind of creepy to think about, because that woman is her godmotheron that.ROYAL PRINCES OF RUTHENIA is a duology by Jennifer Blake The books are set in a fictional Balkan country called Ruthenia, and the hero of each book is a Ruthenian prince Initially I was skeptical because I think the last historical romance I read that was set in a fictional country was by Christina Dodd It was not good.These books surprised me, though both of them are beautifully written and the first one especially has amazing dialogue The sensory descriptions are vivid and poetic, and I can t imagine how much research went into these books because the gala scenes, fight scenes, and day to day scenes are equally well done So is the sex, if you re into that sort of think, wink, wink, nudge, nudge.Royal Seduction This book was close to perfect, and you should really check out my full length review on that book s page ROYAL SEDUCTION is very much a classic bodice ripper, written in the vein of the other greats, like Rosemary Rogers or Laurie McBain The writing is especially lovely in this book and the hero and heroine s witty repartee flew off the pages There s a lot of sex but the romance doesn t really happen until later, because it s enemies to lovers the hero thinks first that the heroine killed his brother, and then that the heroine is covering for the person who did So yeah, he s not happy.I seriously can t say enough about this book, although I would caution you that it does have forced seduction, so if that s something that upsets you, you should probably keep that in mind It doesn t happen just once, either, but I personally felt like it fit the story, and that the hero was definitely being portrayed as a not nice person for doing it At its core, this is a book about vengeance and betrayal, so many of the bad things that do happen fit the theme of the story and the ruthlessness of the characters.Royal Passion NOOOOOO, the first book was so good that I immediately launched into this one, and I couldn t believe the dip in quality I don t think I ve been this disappointed by a bodice ripper sequel since reading Rosemary Rogers s DARK FIRES after SWEET SAVAGE LOVE.ROYAL PASSION is set thirty years in the future after ROYAL SEDUCTION and the hero is actually the child of the first couple Overall, the plot kind of reads like a pale imitation of the first book hero and heroine at odds, court intrigue, betrayals, final confrontation, near death experience, nursing back to health, pledge to love one another forever and ever, etc.There s also a shift in tone, which I think will please people who don t like the bodice ripper formula e.g bad things happening to everyone, all the time , but for me it felt really weird and jarring, because the first story was so dark and now suddenly we have secondary AND tertiary romances to pad out the plot, as well as animal sidekicks and villains who LITERALLY look like the devil I go intodetail about my thoughts on ROYAL PASSION in my Goodreads review, but the TL DR version is that I was expecting so muchand was delivered so much less Boo.I was pretty disappointed with ROYAL PASSION, but I m rounding up for the hot lovins.Overall, ROYAL PRINCES OF RUTHENIA was a fun, quick read I got through this box set in just a couple days Usually I say, Go for the box set because it s such a great deal, but I feel like in this case, I d advice you to just pick up the first book and have done with it The first book is AMAZING.3.5 stars

    Yeesh How to review and rate Royal Seduction 3It includes what the author calls forced seduction Let s face it, Rolfe is right later when he tells Angeline s aunt that he has scarred her soul, not her body It was rape but he made her respond Despite that, I felt it was written well given the time period it portrays Royal Passion 1.5This wasn t the worst book I have ever read, but even bringing Rolfe and Angeline back couldn t keep it from being terrible Roderic is far less fleshed out a Yeesh How to review and rate Royal Seduction 3It includes what the author calls forced seduction Let s face it, Rolfe is right later when he tells Angeline s aunt that he has scarred her soul, not her body It was rape but he made her respond Despite that, I felt it was written well given the time period it portrays Royal Passion 1.5This wasn t the worst book I have ever read, but even bringing Rolfe and Angeline back couldn t keep it from being terrible Roderic is far less fleshed out and he is clearly cut from the same cloth as his father I was farinterested in the two secondary romances than I was in the main plot and both of those were so glossed over it was depressing I am inclined to think that the author wanted to find a way to neatly close the loop on Angeline and Andre s abortive love It flopped

    I read only the first book in this set It was the same story, setting, and type of characters of her Louisiana Historical Collection I didn t like it any the second time I realize rape is often a staple of bodice rippers and I really do not want to engage in a discussion I will only say this There are authors who do not glamorize it and those who do I believe Ms Blake belongs to this latter group Rape in romance is always fake and it caters to a whim, that said there is something call I read only the first book in this set It was the same story, setting, and type of characters of her Louisiana Historical Collection I didn t like it any the second time I realize rape is often a staple of bodice rippers and I really do not want to engage in a discussion I will only say this There are authors who do not glamorize it and those who do I believe Ms Blake belongs to this latter group Rape in romance is always fake and it caters to a whim, that said there is something called plausible behavior

    My review of the first book is posted under its title rather than the box set The second book is evenof a yawn fest The author is a good writer, but if I had wanted a history of France s politics, I would have bought one of those instead of a romance novel I liked the characters and the mystery surrounding them but skipped whole sections of the history stuff.

    I tried I really really tried When the main lady gets ravished shall we say within the first few chapters, I keep reading I said to myself, hon, you re a prude who doesn t even look in the mirror naked It s some sort of bondage play that you don t understand and that s just fine The girl seems fine if not rather jolly and fiction is fiction so I kept on reading.It s a detailed and interesting story And I wanted to see what the cousin really knew or did and all that and if the prince I tried I really really tried When the main lady gets ravished shall we say within the first few chapters, I keep reading I said to myself, hon, you re a prude who doesn t even look in the mirror naked It s some sort of bondage play that you don t understand and that s just fine The girl seems fine if not rather jolly and fiction is fiction so I kept on reading.It s a detailed and interesting story And I wanted to see what the cousin really knew or did and all that and if the prince would fall in love ya know But then I got to the part where the cousin is raped by five guys and then not half an hour later does a sexy dance and asks the sixth to also rape her Gotta nope out there.There are some things I don t want to understand, or even think about too hard, and this book is now one of them
