    An amusing and entertaining Regency boxset

    When five friends are caught in a snowstorm and do what rakes do when bored, play cards and place bets. When a gypsy enters the fray and challenges each of them, they really do not know what they are letting themselves in for. I have read all but one of these novels and found each entertaining and enjoyable. Meddle in a Marquess's Affairs: Some people just cannot help themselves and Camille Ducat is one of them. When Rex Baluster is carried bleeding into her brother-in-law's house, she takes it upon herself to tend to his wounds until such time as the doctor can get there. Camille doesn't know about the bet taken with the gypsy woman and walks straight into a fateful encounter with Rex. The plot, whilst somewhat suspenseful has all the makings of a good Regency romance, including a rogue who finds himself well on the way to reforming after meeting his Angel. Never Trust an Errant Earl: A surly rake and a desperate lady.....makes for light-hearted and humourous reading. Storming her sister's wedding in a bid to escape her mother's malicious plans, Cristina finds herself being weighed and found wanting by Sirius, Earl of Clearwood. However, that is no concern of hers as all Cristina Ducat wants is a husband that loves her and a way out of having to deal with her mother. However, Cristina's new brother-in-law ropes Si in to assist with keeping Cristina safe, knowing that Lady Rosemond will not let up until she has achieved her own objectives. In protecting Cristina, Si discovers that he is not as immune to her charms as he would have liked to think. The story is romantic, entertaining and made me laugh as the group of friends go down one at a time like nine pins at the feet of the Ducat sisters. Never Kiss an Earl at Midnight: Lady Victoria knows all about the gypsy's bet and prediction regarding the Rakes and the Ducat girls. However, she has more intelligence than to believe that the outcome of a kiss from the Earl, Kenneth Kissinger, will have the same effect as on her older sisters. After all, she is a bluestocking and he is a desolate drunk. One small interaction puts Key in a new light, one where his caring and concern for others, regardless of the scorn being heaped on him, comes to the fore. When Key takes charge of what has become an unmanageable set of circumstances, Victoria realises that she hasn't only met her match, but there is more to Key than she could have anticipated. Make a Viscount Beg: The last rake to fall under the prediction of the gypsy, Chase is determined to avoid kissing Lady Adelaide. He has absolutely no intention of being leg-shackled to the self-opinionated minx, or anyone else for that matter. The problem is the more she avoids him, the more his interest is piqued. Lady Adelaide has watched her sisters fall to the charms of the other four rakes' kisses, and although they are all happy, Adelaide doesn't see any future with the dissolute Chase. She, in fact, has much bigger problems to deal with. With her father falling deeper into dementia each day and her mother pursuing her own brand of madness, Adelaide knows that she has to keep her wits about her. Chase is a charming hero and when the situation turns dangerous, he knows that he has to do whatever is necessary to keep Adelaide and her sisters safe, also resulting in him inadvertently revealing more about his true self than he wants to. Adelaide finds herself looking at Chase with fresh eyes and when he faces the ultimate danger on her behalf, she knows that it won't be possible for her to be truly happy with anyone else. Each novelette is a standalone and comes to a happy conclusion. I received a copy of this book as a gift and this is my honest and voluntary review.
