I read this to take a break from Mysteries. The humor was still spot on, specially on the typical male Cynster allergic reaction to the inevitable 'Cynster Curse' that every Cynster of both sexes and of marriageable age were fated to succumb to willy~nilly... some kicking and screaming... some mulishly digging in their heels but as sure as the sun sets on the west and rises in the east ~ 'Resistance is Futile' (to borrow a Trekish Borg phrase). When Christopher met his Destiny, it was not in a ...more

So good to see another Cynster meet his match!

I love the Cynster series and seeing the children of the original series now finding their way in the world. Ellen is struggling to keep her uncle's major running smoothly until her brother is old enough to take over. Christopher is just deciding that maybe he does want to look for a wife to be his love and help him run his estate. There is Ellen, not at all what he was expecting! She is overly beribboned and bowed, and looks like a doll. But looks

The Cynsters answer the call of the Crown

What should be a busy time with his parents away turns even more so when he meets his new neighbors. The sheep are in the hops oh no. To make matters even worse his cousin by marriage ask him to help the crown. Can his new neighbor help hold things together. As all ways the Cynster cousins can be counted on to keep you excited and deal out the romance

Someday I'll have time to reread every Stephanie Laurens books again.

I'm happy to have Christopher story told, so highly recommend this book with no spoilers from me.
But I really want the time to read every book again. I Will admit that many have already be read multiple times by me. But it's time for a complete re-read from start to finish. I'm looking forward to that time. This author's work is enduring, I always look forward to sinking into her world. Thank you again.

A great read

This book is part of the Cynster Next Generation series. It has the usual suspense element Cynster male asked to serve the crown. A lady partner to help him. Some Cynster fami!y and connections to help. But it all starts with goats that bring a man to his true love even if they are hidden in the trappings. I really enjoyed this read

Christopher and Ellen

I just love this author and the continuation of the Cynster books with the next generation. I have read almost every book she has written, some more than once. This story was great, a little romance, a little intrigue and ending with a wedding. So the Cynsters get together and there is a lot of guessing as to who will call victim to the Cynster curse.

Not among my favorites from the author. I felt the story had a lot of repetitive information. Needed tighter editing. Also the emphasis on Ellen's dress got a little boring and didn't have a resolution. I, at the least, expected her to be rescued by dropping rosettes and ribbons along the road.

Next to fall

As usual, the next Cynster romance was a page Turner. Ms Lauren's has a way of doing a stand alone book but keeping you invested with her main family. I recommend this as well as all of her books.

You really can't go wrong with a story by Laurens. I just loved these characters and the plot of this book. I love all the Cynsters. Can't wait to read the next installment of the Cynsters saga.

This was more of a whodunit story that was loosely wrapped around a Victorian/puritan love story.
