I have really loved reading Zoe Archer's Blades of the Rose. Her series is a wonderful combination of adventure and romance, sprinkled with a touch of magic and a bit of sex, set in gorgeous locales in a time gone by. The overarching theme involves the noble members of the Blades of the Rose finding love even as they fight to prevent the elitist Heirs of Albion who are intent on stealing magical artifacts and accumulating enough magical power to install England as the world's supreme power.

Warrior: Funny, fast paced, entertaining. More adventure than romance....think Romancing the Stone, sort of.

Scoundrel: A lot like the first book slightly different characters. Slightly different mission. You have to be 100% willing to suspend your disbelief for nearly all of this series. Still, it's a light, entertaining read.

Rebel: Just like the first two. If you have read one you have read the rest...but they are each worthy of a little bit of time.

Stranger: Last of the series. Good, but long.
I ended up sort of all over the place on these four books. I loathed Warrior, mostly enjoyed Scoundrel, was iffy on Rebel, and am not looking likely to finish Stranger.

I think what it comes down to in the end is that there are certain tropes I can't stand in my romances - they don't make the books bad per se, as they might work beautifully for another romance reader, but they bore me to tears. Regrettably, Zoe Archer's books are full of things that drive me crazy, for example: the overbearing l
Loved the series as a whole, and books 3 and 4 in particular. Rolicking good adventures, dashing heroes and ladies who can handle themselves in a dangerous situation. I rushed through all of these like a bag of tortilla chips.

Warrior: Good introduction to the world, the Blades and the Heirs. Vaginal Fantasy hnagout pick for September 2013 - yay, my birthday month! Very cinematic descriptions of the scenery and I could clearly picture in my head the places they were traveling and the people aroun

Having such a tough time making it through the 1st of the novels in this series/collection that I may never make it to the next one... Yes, I have said it - too much sex and lust in this book. And not particularly good or exciting sex. It's sooo boring!!!

So far, the first book is ok. The dialogue is, occasionally, overly contrived, which is a usual occurrence in these types of novels. It's a bit more graphic than I expected, but not too ridiculous.
Ok, so I 'm about half way through the last book. I don't think I can finish it. Although the writing of the world inside the book is really great, the character interactions are too saccharin and I think I'm done with it. Not a terrible book but not a great one either.
This book (or set of books) had a really good premise and some sections that were extremely well written. I loved the setting, the concept but got completely overwhelmed by the sexual desire and overall 'gotta have him/her' to the point where I couldn't finish the book. I may some day, but right now, it's just too much near sex/actual sex to slog through.
Someone I follow online described this series as Indiana Jones for Social Justice. . . and I wish it was. I think the romance aspects of the series ruined it for me (every book has a couple that gets together, with too detailed for my taste sex scenes). Especially since I wasn't expecting romance novels, which is basically what these are.
finished warrior... magic indiana jones sounded AMAZING sadly it was not...
