Richard and Rose are back, a few months after the events of Yorkshire and shortly before their upcoming wedding.

Devonshire takes place at Rose's childhood home, which she shares with her brother James, a newly inherited earl, their other half-siblings, his wife and their children. It's a full house, but Connolly manages to weave them into the story enough to show a large, close family dynamic but not overwhelm with a confusing cast of characters. The major players in this drama remain Richard an

Rose and Richard’s relationship blossoms further in book 2, where we get to see them learning more about one another. Their love in book 1 is very apparent, and book 2 highlights their growing passion. They have a love that, I’

I liked this 2nd book. Although still there are parts that are dragging. Still I am hooked on this series. I hope it will be better and better.
I LOVE these books. I cannot wait to read the next one. Great writing, awesome characters, and an epic love.
I liked this book better than the first one. I hope the author goes easy on Rose in the next book though!

I was born in Leicester, England, and lived in our cobbler’s shop with my parents and sister. It was an old house and most definitely haunted, but I didn’t find out until I left that my great uncle had hung himself in the living room! But I think our ghost might have been older than that. It was built on the site of the old Roman cemetery, and the land had been constantly inhabited, being in the c ...more
