    Dukes of War box set

    I have read all four book. You will have an easier read because I had to wait between books to finish this set. This was a great series. The characters pull you right into the story. These stories get better with every book you read. It will be hard to put down. I would recommend this set to anyone who likes the Regency era. Don't let this set get away!

    Regency Romance at its Best!

    Having read all four of these wonderful stories I highly recommend them to anyone that enjoys romance set in the Regency period. The writing is superb, the characters well crafted, the stories entertaining and each character a person I would like to have as a friend. Great series by a great author!

    Great series!

    I loved all these books. Erica adds a lot of humor in her romances, and I laughed a lot while reading. The stories all kept me interested, and I enjoyed all the characters.

    Entertaining Read

    A series of four entertaining, linked stories by Erica Ridley. I'm relatively new to the Regency era romance (Yes, I know of Georgette Heyer, but the one time I tried one of hers, I couldn't get into it.) so, I'm sure I'm going to miss a lot of what are standard tropes or patterns that a more experienced reader might enjoy. As it is, I found all four romances to be entertaining, involving four couples I enjoyed reading about. Beginning with the introductory novella, we are introduced to the so-called Dukes of War, and how they've been affected by the Napoleonic Wars. The Viscount's Christmas Temptation was particularly entertaining with Amelia's scheming ways. From there, the romance between Edward and Grace was just plain fun - the humor between the characters was lovely and while the plot was very straighforward, Erica Ridley made it a very enjoyable trip. The Captain's Bluestocking Mistress is what felt for me to be the weakest of the books, but still was enjoyable - I'll get to my reservations about it further down. Finally the Major's Faux Fiance was also fun, but a bit more flawed than the first two stories as well, but still a read I'm comfortable recommending to anyone looking for light fiction. I'm probably going to go forward with reading more of Erica Ridley's work, and think it will be just as entertaining. I do want to applaud Erica Ridley for tackling emotional aftermaths of war - and especially in regards to the UK's Napoleonic Wars. I can't help feeling that she treats a little too lightly on mental illness, but that's a topic that's barely recognizable as a concern within the setting. Terms like depression just wouldn't have meant the same thing then that they do now. It's certainly not a flaw for the stories to have brought that up, with obvious concern and compassion, but it does leave me reading the books as being in some kind of alternate reality. I suspect that that sort of reaction is inevitable considering the setting, and how different modern audiences are going to be. In the end it's great to see such topics tackled in fiction, but a part of me wishes that the examination could have been more about how the mental recoveries of both Xavier and Bartholomew (and Nadine for that matter) weren't going to go away in an instant.
