The Tough-As-Nails Regency Heroine Returns

Fortunately for me, I was able to start reading book two of the Olivia Featherstone Regency Adventures series right after I finished reading book one. “A Perilous Liaison” picks up right where “An Intriguing Deception” left off, and that was quite a cliffhanger.

In the second novel by Terry Ann Taylor, Olivia finds herself caught up in an international crisis. I will be honest; I knew nothing about the situation involving England, Greece, Russia, and the Ottoman Empire in those early days of the 19th century. Ms. Taylor explains as she goes, but I’m sure I did not grasp all the nuances, and really that’s fine. I quite enjoyed the action and romance without fully understanding the politics.

On this outing, we are treated to more of Olivia’s finesse with various weapons, her skill driving various conveyances, and her cleverness at getting out of deadly situations. Craven remains an enigma during his occasional appearances (he has good reason for being absent part of the time). Ms. Taylor has a way with words, as well, that make reading her novels extra enjoyable.

I highly advise reading book one in this series first, if you have not, because – as I said – book two does follow immediately after, and you’ll get all the proper introductions to the regular characters. Book two ends on a slight cliffhanger (in comparison to the last book’s shocking conclusion), and I am eagerly awaiting book three.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. That had no influence on my enjoyment and positive recommendation.

I have made two short films, one for a college film-making class, the other for an MTV-sponsored contest. I have written short plays that have been produced, and a few short stories and reviews that have been published. I also perform and direct for community theatre. My working life has included stints in local TV news, public relations, retail management and cashier, and for a couple of years, I made the rides go at Walt Disney World. I have two cats and a husband.
