The first book of Veryan’s I read was The Tyrant which is part of her Golden Chronicles saga, though not . My first Patricia Veryan book and hopefully not my last. As I enjoyed this book I'll give the first and second instalment in this series a go.

The first book of Veryan’s I read was The Tyrant which is part of her Golden Chronicles saga, though not the first book in the series. The Golden Chronicles’ overarching plot has to do with the ruthless hunting down of Jacobite fugitives after the battle of Culloden, and the hunt for the hidden Jacobite gold. Our heroine, Phoebe Ramsey, finds herself caught up in the plot quite by accident. Her family is struggling to keep the manor, and she is expected to marry well.

All of Patricia Veryan's Golden Chronicles are good reads, and The Tyrant is no exception. The hero is brooding, rude and sarcastic on the surface, but loyal and devoted underneath. The heroine is a spoiled flirt at first glance, but is made of sterner stuff

All of Patricia Veryan's Golden Chronicles are good reads, and The Tyrant is no exception. The heroine is a spoiled flirt at first glance, but is made of sterner stuff. It's a pleasure to watch them fall in love amidst the plot complications that Veryan does so well. One person found this helpful.

With this third volume in The Golden Chronicles series, Veryan continues the adventures of Bonnie Prince Charlie's partisans.

This was my first book by this author and I loved it. The main characters are 'forced' into an engagement early on in the book through circumstances where they end up helping an injured friend of the H. The h fancies herself in love with another man and the H is not keen on getting married at all. They both enter into the arrangement for the sake of propriety but agree to get out of it as soon as possible. We have the historical backdrop of the Georgian era and the background of the Jacobites rebelling against the English. The injured party is a Jacobite with everyone trying to find him including the h's love interest (he's an English soldier). The story follows many twists and turns involving the injured friend and our main characters trying make sure he doesn't get captured. The relationship between the H and h develops very nicely throughout. I enjoyed this book and the only thing putting me off reading the rest of the series is the price of each book.

This whole series is absolutely wonderful, suspenseful, and mysterious all at the same time. Love the characters in these books Mrs.Veryan makes them come alive. The escapades are thrilling and brings you right into the story so you feel a part of the whole plot. If you haven't read The Golden Chronicles, by Patricia Veryan. You must start reading them today!!!! Absolutely my favorite author!!!

Love all Patricia Veryan works! This one is a twisted plot and even though you know all will be right in the end, it takes you for a great ride!

All of Patricia Veryan's Golden Chronicles are good reads, and The Tyrant is no exception.

The hero is brooding, rude and sarcastic on the surface, but loyal and devoted underneath. The heroine is a spoiled flirt at first glance, but is made of sterner stuff. Forced into betrothal to hide a treasonous secret, this pair doesn't know each other, let alone like each other. It's a pleasure to watch them fall in love amidst the plot complications that Veryan does so well.

this patricia veryan book, part of the golden cronicles is a good edition to my collection of patricia veryan
  • Morad
Although the last section is full of adventure, danger, and suspense, this one is mostly a more domestic romance and more of a comedy of manners than many of Veryan's novels. It is charmingly old-fashioned as are all of her books. The final love scene between the Phoebe and "Merry" is one of Veryan's most romantic and touching. It is full of period detail and is engaging throughout. There is one part that drags a bit, as usual, but this one part is pretty short. As usual, so far, the couriers of the cypher that name Jacobite (Jacky-bites, as called by one old codger) "traitors" and give the clues to the treasure collected to raise funds for Bonnie Prince Charlie, are ill-chosen, as they are, although long on bravery and nobility, are pretty weak in the brain department. This gets a little tedious after awhile. Luckily our hero and heroine are loyalists, not rebels, but have sympathy for the victims of Cumberland's atrocities. (less)

This is my first novel by Patricia Veryan and I enjoyed it very much. Until now I wasn't sure what a Georgian romance was. The Georgian era is a period of British history normally defined as including the reigns of George I, George II, George III, and George IV, i.e. covering the period from 1714 to 1830. This novel takes place in the mid-1700s. A Regency is defined by the Regency of George IV as Prince of Wales during the illness of his father George III. Often, the short reign of King William IV (1830 to 1837) is also included. This information comes from Wikipedia.

Phoebe Ramsey is a proper and responsible, not cardboard, lady. But within 24 hours of helping her brother assist a gentleman who is hurt, she finds herself betrothed to another. A virtual stranger, Meredith Carruthers aka 'The Tyrant' had no intention of getting entangled in this family's affair the night he met the Ramseys. Both 'Merry' and Phoebe are frustrated at their dilemma and agree to find a way out of marrying each other.

This is one of those stories that shows that a good writer can make the romance sensuous without the characters having sex. Entirely enchanting is the slow irresistible attraction they develop for one another. I wanted, no, I needed to learn the circumstances of why Merry behaved the way he did. The wonderful disagreements Phoebe and he have are priceless. It was also one of those rarer times when you realized the hero fell in love sooner then the heroine did.

Out of print, I picked up my copy at the library. There are six volumes: #1-Practice to Deceive, #2-Journey to Enchantment, #3-The Tyrant, #4-Love Alters Not, #5-Cherished Enemy and #6-The Dedicated Villain. The third volume of The Golden Chronicles, I had no problem reading it alone.

The story was closer to 4 and 1/2 stars. Perhaps because I have never read any of Ms. Veryan's other books it took me awhile to warm up to the dialogue of that era. Toad-eater, suds, rusticated, and dragoons are some of the words you'll find in this book. I found it was necessary to look up what some of them meant but once I did I breezed through the book. Whether you enjoy Georgian or regency romances I would encourage you to find this book. You will be glad you did.

If you're not confused, you're not paying attention. - Tom Peters
