*Mild Spoilers !
I've been quite engrossed with this series the whole weekend, I devoured three books in three days,I've just finished and already I miss the characters terribly, let me explain why...
Beguiling the Beauty (book 1 in the Fitzhugh trilogy)
In this book we meet the Fitzugh's and their friends. The main couple is the beauty Venetia Fitzhugh, her very wealthy Duke of Lexington and the many misunderstandings they come across.
Is the beauty enough to win prejudice and can prejudice be overcome by the simple truth?
Although the storyline is quite simple, we get to meet all the side characters and learn bit by bit their lives.
Ravishing the Heiress (book 2 in the Fitzhugh trilogy)
The main issue of book two of this trilogy is the marriage of convenience.
When we met Fitz and Millie in the first book I though that there is another couple in an arranged marriage that remails civil, I never expected the depth of emotions those two characters hid.
The new Earl Fitzhugh knows that the only way to save his estates and his family from bankruptcy is to marry the young daughter of a factory owner, but when he finally gets to know Millie he realizes that his marriage was a wise choice after all.
(and their love making was so hot "good job Fitz!")
Tempting the Bride (book 3 in the Fitzhugh trilogy)
In this final book of the trilogy we come face to face with a terrible scandal, a scandal that will shake the foundation of both the Lexington's and the Fitzhugh's lives.
We already know from the previous installments that Viscount Hastings is madly in love with Helena, what we don't know is how stupid Helena is with her fixation with her paramour
What I found most intriguing is Hasting's character, his insecurities, his delicate handling of his daughter, his depth of emotion for the people around him is magnificent by the end of the book I wasn't even sure whether Helena was the right choice for him but lastly she realized the hidden treasure she already had in her hands.
Overall this series is a beautiful imaging of the era where the boundaries of the aristocracy have begun to blur, the ladies have begun their education and claimed professions for themselves but the issue of virtue and marriage always remained.
