Just over a week after its release, there are two 5 star reviews for The Rebel's Promise on Goodreads and one on Smashwords.
'I enjoyed every minute of this book. It was romantic, sad and funny by turns. The hero and heroine are great characters , who you just like from the start. I like the way you feel the instant attraction between them, even though he is unconscious! The villain is evil and dastardly and you just want him to get his come uppance. One of the best things about this book is the supporting cast of characters. They all add to the story and they are all really great characters in their own right (even the dog). The setting is atmospheric, and it just feels like you are there with them back in the 1700s mostly because the dialogue is cleverly done. The writing style made me feel like it was a movie and I would love to see this book made into a mini-series. It would be great to see a sequel!'
My current work in progress is set 5 or 6 years after The Rebel's Promise and, while it is not a sequel in the true sense of the word, it does feature some of the same characters (including Jack and Rosie, the hero and heroine of The Rebel's Promise).
'Sweet, charming and witty. Loved the characters and the story. It was like reading a historical soap opera. Reminded me a bit of Georgette Heyer's georgian romances.'
Comparing my writing to that of my favourite author, Georgette Heyer, is the greatest compliment anyone could ever pay me!
Thoroughly enjoyable. Had to read in one sitting. Not only the main characters but the supporting ones are well done.
