"A Good End to a Great Series"
The King's Fancy (1667-68). Frances "Fancy" Devers
thought she had everything when Parker Randolph, a son of
one of Virginia's leading families married her. When she
was suspected of murdering her husband, she was sent to
stay at the English home of her grandmother Jasmine
Leslie. Through her family connections, she meets King
Charles II, which eventually ends in a friendship in spite
of His Highness playing matchmaker to find a husband for
his former mistress over her objections.
Sweet Siren (1667-68). Diana "Siren" Leslie falls
in love with the Roxley twins, Damien and Darius Esmund.
However, she cannot decide which one is right for her so
Siren decides to test the siblings to ascertain which one
loves her above her wealth and prestige.
Cyn and Wickedness (1669-70). Cynara "Cyn" Stuart
loves Harry "Wickeness" Summers. However, though he dreams
of her all the time, and she pulls out all the stops to
gain his attention, his ugly childhood cauded by his
parents make marriage impossible for him. However, when
Cyn makes up her mind even the most wicked will find her
hard to resist.
After a dozen novels and what seems like 98% of the English-
Scottish sixteenth and seventeenth century populace,
Bertrice Small says VIXENS is her final O'Malley novel.
The book consists of three novellas each starring a
descendent from Skye who are cousins, but the trio appears
in each story. All three contributions are well written
but very typical of the O'Malley universe so those fans of
the mythos will read the entire book in one sitting while
newcomers will probably take three days.
