Anthology - "The One That Got Away"

The One That Got Away - Victoria Alexander, Liz Carlyle, Eloisa James, Cathy Maxwell

Giving this one 5 stars based on Cathy Maxwell's story.

Victoria Alexander's story - 2.5 stars. I liked Reggie and Marcus, but the story got quite boring the day after Charlotte's husband showed up - just talk, talk, talk.

Liz Carlyle's story - 2.5 stars - interesting premise, but could have been better handled.

3 stars for Eloisa James' story - again, a nice premise, but the heroine is really a blank slate and has nothing to make her interesting to the reader. Lucius is a lot more interesting and gets his due in the Essex sisters' series. Also, I have my doubts about these heroes who go to India with nothing and come back 5 or 6 years later fabulously rich - one can only conclude that a lot of local people in India got horribly exploited by these guys.

Cathy Maxwell's story gets 5 stars - intense, angsty, amazing.
