Liz Carlyle is a must buy author for me. I love how she (slightly) connects her books even across series. Zoe Armstrong, the secondary female character is the illegitemate daughter of the Marquess of Rannoch, and his story is the only one I haven't read. Normally, when I by mistake or ignorance buy a book which is the second or third in series, I don't buy the ones before as I have been disappointed a few times. This time however, I will buy just so I can make sure I have all the characters straight.
