RHAPSODY AND REBELLION ONCE UPON A WIDOW #2 AUBREY WYNNE

Four Stars

Rhapsody and Rebellion is one of my favorite type of books. I love Historical Romance novels. You get to place yourself in a time from 100 of years ago. To be in a time where men were gentleman. They held doors, came to pick you up for dates and showed you with respect. Even though in those times women were more like property and broodmares. I mostly like the parts were the men are rakes and all the girls are in love with him but the mom and chaperone are like stay away. I really enjoy the authors take on this time period. Gideon and Lissie are very unique characters. The gift brought the story a twist that was very enjoyable. The only thing I disliked was the way they spoke. I understand that the way they spoke was normal but goodness I could do without. Overall a good read if you like your historical romance filled with adventure and strong characters.

Rhapsody And Rebellion, Once Upon A Widow, Enduring Legacy Series, By Aubrey Wynne

5-stars

This was a sweet romance that takes readers back in time. It was too good to put down. Gideon and Lissie were amazing main characters. I loved how opposite they were yet drawn to each other. I didn’t like the address Lissie carried with her but after losing your husband I could understand how painful the loss would be. I really enjoyed the storyline and the differences in the cultures present. I found both the Scottish and English ways fascinating. Such a wonderful read.

Rhapsody and Rebellion (Enduring Legacy #7)

Rhapsody and Rebellion by Aubrey Wynne

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Rhapsody and Rebellion: (Once upon a Widow), written by Aubrey Wynne, is the 7th book in the Enduring Legacy Series. This book is a historical romance, and the first I read in this series, and I LOVED IT. I found myself lost in the world of Gideon and Alisabeth. Alisabeth lost her love and then a month later Gideon comes to town and awakens something so deep inside her. Gideon leads his life people proper and never straying until a dream his mother has changes thing. These two are so drawn to eachother but the guilt that Alisabeth carries is almost too much for her but the desire also takes play into the road of Gideon and Alisabeth. Once Gideon finds out about the rebellion he needs to fight not just for country but for the one who holds his heart.

The author truly puts you in the book, in the story with a storyline you get lost in. You can close yours and see the era and also feel what the two main characters feel each step of the way. Being as this is the first book in the series and also the first by this author, I am jumping in and reading this whole story. I give this book five stars and highly recommend for anyone who loves historical romance! WELL DONE!

Rhapsody and Rebellion (Enduring Legacy #7)Rhapsody and Rebellion by Aubrey Wynne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rhapsody and Rebellion is the seventh book in the Enduring Legacy series. Each book is by a different author (in this case, Aubrey Wynne), but all focus on the same Scottish family whose mysterious powers are both a blessing and a curse. The books can be read as stand-alone stories, but are connected to each other.
I really liked the grounding in historical events, and the attention to historical detail in the worldbuilding. It definitely falls into the historical fiction bracket for combining history lesson with drama and bringing a time and place to life. For me, the written Scots didn’t quite flow but this may have been because it was only used for certain words. Other than that, I felt thoroughly drawn into the story!
I particularly liked the character Alisabeth – she’s grieving and struggling to find her place in families in the world after losing her husband. She’s sensitive to those around her and generally a well-developed character.
It’s a classic love story, but the historical setting and magic add a unique flavour. If you like romance, and are interested in British history (although mostly focusing on Scotland, we get to see various places in England as well!), this is definitely worth a read! For me, it gets four stars.

Rhapsody and Rebellion (Enduring Legacy #7)Rhapsody and Rebellion by Aubrey Wynne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s been a LONG time since I’ve read a book like this and it’s one I devoured.

Gideon the Earl of Standfeld was raised to be his father’s image. He’s very practical and exact. Lines are not blurred in his world so when his mother has a dream and begs to go back home to Scotland, he has no idea how his life is about to change and one highland beauty will catch his eye.

This book is the 7th book in the series but definitely can be read a standalone. I enjoyed the characters as well as the story intertwining with real historical events. Miss Wynne has a way of sucking you in with her story telling and not let you up until the end. I will be going back to book 1 in this series and I can’t wait to be sucked into each and every one of these stories!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rhapsody and Rebellion was a great 5 star read and book #7 in the Enduring Legacy series.

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night” – Edgar Allen Poe

Gideon’s mom has a dream/vision of a family member passing away in a terrible accident. She is adamant that they go home to Scotland. To make his mother happy he agrees to take her.

After marrying her best friend at 17, Alisabeth has become a widow after less than a year of marriage due to political uproars. When her husbands cousin arrives things take an interesting twist.

When Gideon and Alisabeth meet you can feel the connection between them. As they get to know each other better, things start to build even more between them. Gideon discovers that he has inherited something special from his ancestors.

Will these two get a HEA?

We get humor, action, suspense and so much more. Aubrey Wynne does a great job with her writing and pulls you right in.I really liked Alisabeth, she was a strong character. Gideon quickly grew on me, he was just a lonely guy looking for love and these two together were great. All of the secondary characters were great. I look forward to reading more from this series and author.

My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rhapsody and Rebellion (Enduring Legacy #7) by Aubrey Wynne was a intriguing, interesting historical romance, that had me hooked.

This was my first read from this author and this series. No worries this reads as a standalone, so don’t let that big number seven frighten you. In saying that, I am going to be checking out the other book in this series, because if they are anything like this one then.. girl, I can’t even right now.

Being set in the 1820’s, it was richly detailed and lush, I found myself drawn into this world of the past. Touching on an age that I’m not familiar with, I felt like I was brought there, seeing it, living it like it was that time. I never felt confused or lost, you can tell research went into this read, to make it as authentic as possible.

The overall story is quite the tale, and I found myself not only rooting for the MC’s but I became invested. Want them to have their HEA was a must! So yeah, the feels got involved in this one, and at one point I thought it was all going to go up in smoke. Man you can’t to do that to my heart. Beside the splendid love story, there is war brewing, and that adds another struggled and strong element that rounds out this wonderful read.

This book is a super high recommendation from me. So please take my stamp of approval that you will be drawn into the distance past, and fall hard for this couple that are trying to fight the odds.

Happy Reading

Rhapsody and Rebellion (Enduring Legacy #7)Rhapsody and Rebellion by Aubrey Wynne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Here’s a book about a family fighting to save themselves and their beliefs. A family trying to protect the innocent and the ones they love. “It’s an honor and a heavy burden. And I wish to all the saints that I could save ye from both.”

This is my first book by Wynne and what a great start! This story includes mystery, death, rebellion, The Legacy and even second chances. People protesting the government is not a new age situation. It goes back many years, in this story’s case back to the 1700’s.

I really liked the details of this story. The way the characters talked made sure we knew they were from Scotland and/or England. The style of writing kept me turning the pages, wondering if they would survive, if they would save their loved ones. I look forward to reading more from Wynne. I can definitely recommend this book.

Rhapsody and Rebellion (Enduring Legacy #7)Rhapsody and Rebellion by Aubrey Wynne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“Rhapsody and Rebellion: Once Upon a Widow” is a lovely story surrounding multiple riots in England and Scotland in the late 18th century. Our hero, Gideon, Earl of Stanfeld, has to take his recently widowed mother, Maeve, back to her home in the Scottish Highlands following a disturbing dream. There he meets the young widow to his cousin, the lovely Alisabeth. I stumbled upon this book recently and hesitated reading it as I don’t normally like to start a series in the middle, however this is not your normal book series. All of the books are written by different authors and occupy different times of the same family line so the books aren’t necessarily in order or follow the same people. The foreward recommends reading the first book to understand the series, but I feel Aubrey Wynne did a wonderful job explaining the back story necessary to understanding her story. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters in this book, especially the headstrong Scottish women! Alisabeth, Maeve and the other women in the family were a joy to read about! They are bold and unashamed by it and I loved it! I also loved the family connection that is shared between select members (I don’t want to give anything away but it is a really neat touch to the story as it is the underlying theme through the series.) All in all, this historical fiction was right up my alley and now I’m itching to read more about this family! So, I give “Rhapsody and Rebellion” five stars!
