Stephanie Laurens starts her trilogy about the Cynster sisters with the tale of Heather Cynster in "Viscount Breckenridge to the Rescue". The three Cynster sisters have decided that they will marry only their respective heroes but they seem to be having trouble locating said prospective bridegrooms. Heather decides to take matters into her own hands and attends a less than respectable soiree only to be peremptorily escorted outside and instructed to return home. The dictator? Her regular nemesis, Timothy Danvers, Viscount Breckenridge, acknowledged rake supreme. This latest clash has a very unexpected side effect. Heather is kidnapped in front of the Viscount's disbelieving eyes and his pursuit and attempt at rescue is foiled by the victim herself who wants to solve the mystery behind her abduction due to the implied threat to her sisters. Danvers continues to do his utmost to protect the determined termagant even as she becomes increasingly important to his sense of comfort and satisfaction but she has very strict notions of what she will find acceptable in a mate. Each of them must find a way to compromise if they are going to find the happy every after that each Cynster considers an absolute requirement before he or she will accept a mate and they must find a way to eliminate the threat to the sisters.
Another wonderfully romantic and deeply satisfying Laurens tale that showcases another generation of Cynster siblings as they travel from the innocence of young adulthood to the eye-opening realities of maturity. Danvers is a dashingly portrayed rake who is determined to guard his heart despite or possibly because of his intimate knowledge of the far-reaching Cynster clan and their associates. His gradual enlightenment is also detailed as he struggles to navigate through the perilous challenges to both the physical and societal status of the lady who threatens to disrupt his very comfortable existence. The mysterious threat from a nebulous entity provides the unifying element that will tie the trilogy together as that aspect is very gradually revealed. This volume is also part of a charitable program that the publisher is supporting and some of the proceeds will be donated to the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.
