Chase Family Boxed Set One
The Jewels

Three complete novels
in one specially priced set!

In 1651, the four Chase children were orphaned when their parents died defending their king in the English Civil War. Raised on the Continent in the midst of Charles II's exiled court, they accompanied his triumphant return to England in 1660. For those close to the king, the Restoration meant more than the return of the monarchy.

But none of the Chases have found love...

Amber

The glitter of Restoration England is expertly evoked in Royal's latest romance, the third to feature a member of the Chase family. Liberally laced with intrigue and danger, the book's quicksilver plot is nicely counterbalanced by the passionately detailed romance.Booklist (American Library Association)

This lively Restoration romance…is filled with likable characters, particularly Kendra, who takes the refreshing step of talking to her husband about his confusing behavior rather than generating conflict by jumping to conclusions. [Trick's] interactions with his family are drawn with charm and warmth. Although Royal is a new romance author, this winning debut [trilogy] will earn her critical kudos…an impressive talent.Publishers Weekly (Forecasted review)

Lauren Royal sweeps readers up into the 17th century, bringing all the excitement and glamour of the Restoration to life with her colorful characters, vivid backdrop, and passionate romances.

…brings 17th Century England vividly alive…passionate…fast-paced and filled with action from the first page to the climax.Midwest Book Review

Amber is a tremendous Restoration romance. The storyline runs quite deep due to the lead couple. Trick is a captivating protagonist with major problems, but it is the likable and honest Kendra who makes the storyline flow. Her simply asking Trick what bothers him rather than the usual leap to a false conclusion is incredibly refreshing and yet never slows down the pace of the plot. The return of the stars from the previous tales add depth and warmth to a strong conclusion to a powerful tale that is clearly part of a royal flush. —Harriet Klausner (5-star review!)

Lauren Royal juggles the two brilliantly, sending readers back to Restoration England in a delightful series of historical romances that will captivate readers with enchanting storylines and colorful characters—a grand adventure. —Cheré Coen, The Baton Rouge Advocate

Lauren Royal's Amber is a precious jewel. It captures the true essence of Scotland with a tale of strength and endurance that thrives primarily on human spirit…a powerfully crafted story filled with the history of the times…a passionate romance with enough adventure to keep the reader turning the pages. —Suzie Housley, MyShelf.com

The characters are sexy, funny and believable. The love scenes are teasing and sensual. A thoroughly enjoyable read! —Thea Candee, The Romance Readers Connection

Unusual and very welcome.The Romance Reader
