    One thought on “Charles Rex”

    1. Ladies and Gentlemen: Ethel M. Dell in full glory.If you have read at least two novels by Dell, you know what you can expect from her.--> Alpha hero, alpha hero and alpha hero ;-) You can say the testosterone is always in the air. Dell's alpha heroes aren't like in modern romances or in historical fiction taking place in middle-ages. But they are so manly that you either like it (taking it lightly) or hate it (if you take it too serious).he laughed oddly as he did it, as a man laughs who cove [...]

    2. This was splendiferous!!!It reminded me a bit of Ethel M. Dell's short story Rosa Mundi, and a bit of Georgette Heyer's These Old Shades, both of which I loved, but this mixes the two and gives both a new feel and I loved it!!! Real review to come soon

    3. I read the original version of this book, not the condensed, and I was blown away! It's such an emotional read, so poignant and deep, it made my heart bleed for all the characters were going through.

    5. Buddy read with TweetyThis is the story of a wastrel who stows away on a yacht dressed as a boy, the mystery surrounding her and eventual romance.Tweety enjoyed this more than I did, I'm sure that my having to read this in tired snatches (started a new job) didn't help. It's pleasant but I was looking forsomething more. And the female character irritated me. I was hoping I would warm to her over the course of the story but I never really did. But don't go by me. Read Tweety's review when she wri [...]

    6. I'm not sorry I love all of her books! Aside from one other author, she is my favourite. This one I couldn't put down. Ethel never runs out of ideas that are new and exciting.
