I love this read!!!! I love a good Regency Romance and Ms. Beaton wrote a good one in this read. (I only recommend if you understand the period of when it was written as it explains why characters acted certain way.) The hero is a strong alpha male that dresses as a dandy. So heroine doesn't take him seriously at first. Hero doesn't let that stop him, he fall instantly for heroine and is hot in pursuit.

'Silken Bonds' is part 2 of a series but can be read stand alone. Hero falls instantly for the heroine but her guardian has taught her that being with a man is weakness. So hero pulls all the stops to court her. He will bribe staff, ask former interest to play act a role to get close to the family, he buys house next door to her, he watches/stalks her, he finds out what she likes and does what he needs to do to keep her interested in seeing him, he will beg, he will try seduce, he will be her knight in shinning armor, and he will keep saving her countless times form dangers so he can finally claim her as his own.

The book has several twist and turns. This includes some scary situations that require he to save heroine several times, because her family has jewels would-be thiefs want. I loved these scenes, especially the final scene. He may look like a dandy but he fought like a man!!! He is older and more experienced. Heroine is naïve and innocent, but was raised to think like a man. So hero has to be creative to try to win her over, but he is really all for equal rights and proves to her that he wants her as his equal!!!

The other subplot is they are trying to find out who her biological parents are but find that someone doesn't want them to know. I found this read exciting because of the action scenes, extremes hero goes to be able to see heroine and who doesn't want to read a dashing gentleman save a heroine :) There is strong chemistry between H/h and he is very romantic at times when thinking/describing her. However, all love scenes are behind closed doors. Most is heavy petting and kisses. It is a safe reads. Hero is loyal but his promiscuous past does come several times up. He makes sure heroine knows he only wants her several times. I believed him, because of the extremes he goes to win her over.

Highly recommend this read!

I listened to the audio version free on KU. I took about a week to listen to this book as I only listened when I had other tasks to do. It's the second in the Waverly Women series and the main reason to read it would be that you're into the series. This time we have the second daughter, Frederica, as the h. The H is the second son of a Duke and very dandy-ish in appearance but underneath he is a strong man. He rescues the h, her sister and Mrs Waverly when they are walking home after being out and they are attacked. Thus begins the H's pursuit of the h. He falls in love with her quickly but Frederica is stubborn and doesn't want to marry. The other theme running through the book, is that of various thieves wanting to steal the Waverly jewels that all of the Waverly women wear. I was very surprised at what goes on with Mrs Waverly in this book. I personally don't think that this book can stand alone because you'd need to have read the first for context.
Hidden Winter
This is my favorite book of this short series. I have read most of the Beaton Regencies and this one stands out as slightly more fun. The characters are interesting and have believable conversational exchanges. Well, that is most of them do...I found myself doubting Mrs. Waverly throughout this series. She seems a very strange creature to me, behaving less like a real person than a device for the author. Of course, if you read the more elaborate Regency writers then none of Beaton's books compare favorably. But if you want a light-hearted, sweet book that you could read in a day, this series would suit.

Marion Chesney books seem to run hot or cold with many readers. Her characters are not fully developed in the books that I have read, but it does make for easy reading. This novel is the 2nd in the Waverly sister's saga. Three "orphans" raised by a man- hating Mrs. Waverly grow to adulthood with a very skewed view of society and gentlemen in particular. Though we never find out why Mrs. Waverly feels so strongly, we do come to understand she only wanted the three girls to assure company in her old age and set out to make them rivals to each other. She remained cold and emotionally remote throughout this book.

Frederica makes a delightful heroine because her views are strong in wanting to be an equal to men but not radically so (at least in today's standards). She seemed rational compared to Felicity, her younger sister. Lord Harry Danger (Danger??) is not dangerous at all but a true gentleman in every way seeking to capture Frederica's heart by solving the mystery of who the "orphans" really are. That mystery is NOT solved in this book. Maybe it is solved in the sequel about Felicity which I hope to obtain.

I enjoyed this book and hope to find the prequel also. There are some escapades involving drunks, thugs and thieves which add a rather odd element but seemingly the only way to introduce a little adventure into the dull Waverly's lives. Other characters are introduced but they are not fully developed -- one is Harry's mother -- very strange woman who does not appear to have a good head on her shoulders due to the constant bullying of her late husband.

Oh well, take the book as it is -- a light read with some appealing people.
What I did not like was there was a mystery about the girls' real parents that the hero tried to solve, but he gave up.
You are left wondering if they are bastards or if they are secretly gentry.
