READ AND REVIEW: THE ROYAL AFFAIR BY JANE BECKENHAM
The Royal Affair (The Palmera Royals) - Jane Beckenham

 

REVIEW: THE ROYAL AFFAIR BY JANE BECKENHAM

 

 

The Royal Affair (The Palmera Royals #2) by Jane Beckenham
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars


Jane Beckenham drew me in to her modern tale of love and royalty with a twist. The idea that whether royal or common, life is never easy is the point I took away from this story. We all have different obstacles we have to conquer. The Royal Affair is the turning of a fairytale into a wishful dream. Worthy effort.

My Review

 

 

The Bachelor Prince by Jane Beckenham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


An unadulterated look at love in all its beauty and heartache. The story is a breathtaking journey into emotions. I would describe The Bachelor Prince as a pure and simple romance. ( https://www.nightowlreviews.com/v5/Reviews/Lashea-reviews-The-Bachelor-Prince-by-Jane-Beckenham)

The Highwayman's Bride
The Highwayman's Bride - Jane Beckenham

Tess Stanhope has been ruled by her violent and controlling uncle since her parents' death and she's had just about enough of it. An avid reader, she devises a scheme straight out of one of the novels she devours, and although it fails, it does lead her to a way out in the form of the handsome and mysterious Aiden. 

 

Aiden Masters, Earl of Charnley, has been betrayed one too many times and is hell-bent on revenge. His heart has turned bitter by heartbreak and though intrigued by the beautiful Tess, he doubts that their uneasy alliance will amount to much.

 

Though Tess and Aiden are hesitant to trust one another, they can't deny their mutual attraction. Will it blossom into true love?

review SPOILER ALERT! 2013-12-05 10:38
The Highwayman's Bride
The Highwayman's Bride - Jane Beckenham

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the book...

The Highwayman's Bride by Jane Beckenham was my first book by the author. I wanted to read it because, honestly, it was the title. Unfortunately, even though I thought the storyline was pretty good, the writing style was very uneven. Sometimes it was great, sometimes not so much. There were also some frustrating, even unbelievable moments in the story. However, it’d be a lie if I say that I didn’t enjoy it. The story, even with the writing style, had a flow and kept me hooked because it was different.

Tess just escaped her abusive uncle’s house in hopes of a better life. An orphan, Tess’s parents passed away some 8 years ago. Her only close, living relative, Uncle Luther took her in. He not only squandered away whatever money her parents left for her, but also liked bullying her. The guy is an a$$hole and bullying and blustering is all he does best. His own wife, who seemed somewhat vacant to me (and I thought, was a coping mechanism) also has to cope with this on everyday basis. Tess has had enough and now she wants out, otherwise she’d be married off with an old man who is just as gross as Luther. So what does Tess do for a better life? Well, she didn’t do a lot of planning on that regard that for sure. She reads a lot of romance novels and thought to disguise herself as a highwayman and rob a coach or two, then take the money and go somewhere where her uncle won’t find her. Well, this didn’t cast Tess in a very favorable light to me. I thought it was absolutely idiotic. However, I also felt that she was too desperate to do just about anything to escape. On her misadventure as the ‘highwayman’, Tess meets Aiden, our H, who was there on business. He takes a rough tumble while saving Tess’s butt as she was robbing the coach of a wealthy family. I was glad that Aiden saw through Tess’s disguise, because more often than not, authors try to disguise their heroines as male and no one ever seems to know that this is a woman; even when she’s wearing tight breeches.
