I really enjoyed the third book in the Wild Randalls Series by Heather Boyd. I was hooked from page one of Guarding the Spoils until the very end. I absolutely CAN NOT wait to read the next book in this series!
Oliver Randall is a quiet fellow who sometimes irritates the people that love him but not expressing a lot of his emotions. All he has ever wanted is to travel and experience adventures. After being confined for several years by the Old Duke, he just wants his freedom to do as he pleases, he doesn't much care that his brothers would rather he stick around for a while.
Elizabeth Turner has loved Oliver Randall for years. She finally gave up on him returning her love and married, now a widow with a precious son named George. Elizabeth is a strong independent woman that does not want to have to rely on help from anyone else to take care of herself and her son. I loved how this woman is willing to do anything she has to do in order to provide for her son. She is a very devoted mother and friend. Now once again she finds herself spending time with Oliver and she still is very much in love with him. When George and Oliver form a friendship she finds herself falling for Oliver even more because his devotion to her son. I loved how Oliver was so willing to help George learn and expand his knowledge with books.
I adored watching Oliver and Elizabeth's relationship form. These two have so much to offer each other. They just have to figure out that their lives will be so much better together then living apart. Not only did I love the romance between Oliver and Elizabeth, I loved how they were slowly forming a family together.
When Elizabeth's brother-in-law returns to town he causes a lot of drama and problems to for the the family of the Romsey house.There is a lot of drama and tension in this book that made me not want to put it down. I had to force myself to set it down when I had too. I loved how once again this family comes together to protect those close to them. They will do what ever it takes to protect Elizabeth and George.
Heather Boyd certainly has me hooked on her Wild Randall Series. I will impatiently be awaiting the release of her next book. If you enjoy historical romancing with a big heaping of mystery thrown in I think you'll enjoy this book.
