    Best hero in a long time

    Hugh Redvers, Baron Ramsey has been thought dead for almost two decades. Only a very few knew that he was still alive. He arrives at his late uncle's estate in time to see the aftermath of a struggle between Lady Daphne, his widowed aunt and Sir Malcolm., her cousin. There's a problem between Malcolm and Daphne, but she does not disclose what it is at this time. Lucien and Richard, Daphne's young sons take to their Cousin Hugh, especially after they find out that he's a Privateer for the King, ridding the seas of slavers traders. He has a most interesting past that I found as fascinating as Daphne and the boys did. He also, has secrets and a score to settle before he can be at peace. This is the story of a young woman who is left with her two sons after her much older husband dies. She has secrets and threats from the past that she finds hard to share. Hugh comes in with his dare devil ways and strange entourage and upsets the household in a good way. Hugh is a perfectly, imperfect hero. I loved him. There's so much more to this story. I really loved the storyline and all the details. It is a plot within a plot. Steamy love scenes. The author has taken her time with this book, researching many details that bring the story to life. It's one adventure after another and very well written. I read it all in one sitting because I needed to know what happened next. I give it a 5++. I received this book from Net Galley and Kensington Books for a honest review and no compensation otherwise. The opinions are my own.

    As delightful as the scrumptious cover

    After all these years that he’d been presumed dead, Hugh Redvers, the true Lord Davenport, was alive! That dreadful shock could not have come at a worse time for Lady Daphne Davenport, right after an altercation with Sir Malcolm Hastings, would was becoming too persistent. Had Hugh discovered Daphne’s secrets? What would happen to her and her ten year-old sons? And why did Hugh have to look so impossibly gorgeous, even with his eye patch, his scars, and his missing finger! Dangerous, the first book of The Outcasts, was very good, but BARABAROUS is fantastic! Although it takes place in the same timeline as Dangerous, BARBAROUS stands perfectly on its own. The luscious cover is partly to blame for my decision to read this book, and what a delight that the contents is just as scrumptious! BARBAROUS is fabulously intriguing right from the beginning when Hugh arrives, accompanied by his colourful entourage, and Daphne displays her fortitude and strength of character. Minerva Spencer’s prose is impossibly gorgeous, and her eloquence paints stunning and unforgettable visuals; it’s also very witty, and I laughed several times. The secondary characters are amazing: Rowena, Daphne’s cantankerous maid; Kemal, Hugh’s valet; Hugh’s aunts: the eccentric and forgetful Amelia or the formidable Letitia. I can hardly wait – hopefully not in vain – for Two Canoes’ story; let’s just say he made an impression on me. The villains are stupendously horrid, and outstandingly complex – crafted with as much care as the principals. Hugh and Daphne are both fascinating characters who have enthralling backstories, and their chemistry jumps off the page. The privateer-bad boy Hugh is a softie at heart, and a man I would like to have on my side any day. Daphne is magnificent! She is a proper widow, a serious philosopher, and nothing leaves her discombobulated. Well, actually Hugh does just a little bit. What a superb couple they are, exchanging witty and flirtatious banter; the dialogues throughout are positively stellar! BARBAROUS has it all: kidnappings, murder attempts, smouldering passion, a grand romance, spectacular adventures, and writing that will make you swoon! I am giddy at the thought of the SCANDALOUS story of Martín Bouchard, which will be the next instalment in the series!

    The rumours of my demise ...

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. Barbarous is the second book in Minerva Spencer’s exciting Outcasts series. It can be read as a stand-alone but the first book Dangerous is also very intriguing. After receiving a letter from his childhood companion that his Uncle’s widow and her twin sons are in danger Hugh Redvers, Baron Ramsey aka famed privateer One-eyed Standish returns home after a 20 year absence to reveal that despite rumours to the contrary he is not dead. Daphne Redvers, Lady Davenport’s growing fascination with Hugh is complicated by him being her dead husbands nephew and the secret about what his true inheritance should be that she’s been keeping. The long slow simmer between these two is complicated by that secret, Daphne’s villainous cousin and Hugh’s desire for revenge on an enemy from his past. Hugh is a wonderful hero big and bold with an exuberance for life that shines through on every page as is Daphne as a heroine with her intelligence, passion and grace under fire. I highly recommend this book. Medium Steam, Publishing Date October 30, 2018. #NetGalley #Barbarous #kensingtonbooks
