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

Lynne Connolly has penned yet another fantastic tale in the Richard and Rose series. Devonshire is a dream of a read where I was lost in the past from the first word. There is also tension—absolutely brilliant tension—that had me on the edge of my seat and biting my nails.

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 have very mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand the main plot of the book didn't really interest at all and the climax was just a let down. On the other hand i really loved seeing Rose and Richard growing closer together and how their relationship developed over the course of the book.

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
