    3.5 It is June 1811, and a large reception is being held by his Royal Highness George at the Royal Pavilion, in Brighton, England to honor the French King Louis XVIII George wasn t concerned about his royal guest or the hangers on who were enjoying his wine, food and music while whispering their snide remarks behind his back George didn t care about any of them, only what he saw as he entered a private room not far from the festivities There, by the fireplace waiting for him, was a young beautiful girl lying on the settee with all of her curves and exposed flesh enticing him closer As the flickering candlelight danced over her body and her porcelain face, George leaned down to take her hand But her hand was cold and her eyes blank Thinking she had fainted he raised her up in his arms and cried out as he became aware of a dagger protruding from her back Realizing this places the unpopular King in an alarming situation, Lord Jarvis his advisor, has sent for ...

    The story begins with what appears to be the murder of a young woman in Prince George s rooms.in his presence Sebastian decides to investigate after finding jewelry on the woman s body that has special meaning to him What makes this story fascinating is the high political intrigue woven into what first looks like a simple assignation gone wrong Against the backdrop of Regency period history, the case takes on a vibrant l...

    The second book in the series and it is shorter and tighter than the first one with less time spent on descriptions and introductions As always I enjoyed every moment I spent in Regency England and I am starting to like Sebastian as a main character very much It is fun trying to solve the murder but even enter...

    Rating 4 of fiveThe Publisher Says Brighton, England, 1811 The beautiful wife of an aging Marquis is found dead in the arms of the Prince Regent Draped around her neck lies an ancient necklace with mythic origins and mysterious ties to Sebastian St Cyr, Viscount Devlin Haunted by his past, Sebastian investigates both the Marchioness s death and his own possible connection to it and discovers a complex pattern of lies and subterfuge With the aid of his lover, Kat Boleyn, and a former street urchin now under his protection, Sebastian edges closer to the killer And when one murder follows another, he confronts a conspiracy that threatens his own identityand imperils the monarchy itself.My Review BOOK 2 OF HIGHLY ADDICTIVE SERIESDon t tell me about it if you get hooked.Second outing for author and sleuth Some surprising twists in the pretty standard plot More slightly annoying anachronisms, but they re completely forgotten because the author called George the Regent Prinny I laughed until I stopped What a name This book is a bit less romancey because the plot is driven by some fascinating political realities of the period The biggest surprises are all personally relevant to sleuth Devlin some will fester, some will free him It s a very emotionally charged book, so than the first, and it s just about as surprising as an author can make it be without spoilering her next book.I thin...

    Sebastian, having been absolved of murder, is now free of all charges, but when the Regent is discovered in a compromising position with a dead marchioness, he s asked by Lord Jarvis to investigate.Devlin is reluctant, but when the manipulative Lord Jarvis point to him the neckless the marchioness is wearing he s shocked because that neckless was on his mother s neck when she disappeared 10 years ago And so he starts investigating, but that investigation will bring out some troubling things about his own family, besides the consipracy againt the monarchy.I loved that all the other characters are present here too Tom, the street urchin is now Devlin s tiger and a very helpful sleuth Kat is now his mistress since she still doesn t want to become his wife, even if Devlin won t stop pressuring her.Here the things get complicated because Kat has a dark secret that could bring her in a very dangerous situation if discovered.There re a lot of twists a...

    In 1811, while George III slowly descends into madness, Britain is under the rule of his son, the Prince Regent The Prince is not popular with his ministers or this people, as he is spoilt, dissolute and a spendthrift He is oblivious to the poverty and hardship of the common man and the cost of the Napoleonic wars So when he is found in his cabinet room in the lavish Brighton Pavillion with a beautiful but very dead Marchioness in his arms, his supporters must pull out all stops to clear his name and Sebastian St Cyr, Viscount Devlin is called in to put his many investigative talents to work.This second book in the Sebastian St Cyr series was even better than the first Plot driven, there are many mysteries to solve, not just who murdered the Marchioness and why but there are also spies and plots afoot and Sebastian has a mystery about his own family to solve Sebastian was just as dashing and clever a...

    There are a lot of things I am really coming to like about this series Obviously, I like Devlin, because why would I stick to a series revolving around a protagonist I couldn t stand In a way he reminds me of Batman, sans the cool gadgets In addition to all the sleuthing and action, he s got a junior sidekick in the form of Tom, the same air of menace in society due to his reputation, and, as we re beginning to learn in this book, something of a tragic past.And he cares He cares than he wants people to realize I wouldn t go so far as to say that he is a big softie underneath all that feral viscountiness, but he is human and has a bigger heart than he probably realizes His devotion to Kat, for instance, gives him completely away.I like that this book doesn t shy away from the political atmosphere of the times When Devlin found himself in the thick of that angry mob, it was one of...
