    After reading the first book in the Wild Randalls series I could not wait to read Forsaking the Prize. Heather Boyd did not let me down, this book was enthralling as the first. It was another book that I just could not bring myself to put down. I think I am becoming a fan of Heather Boyd's very quickly. In Forsaking the Prize we get to read more about Blythe, Lady Venables and Tobias Randall. Blythe has had such a rough life with losing her husband and her young son.

Heather Boyd did not let me down, this book was enthralling as the first. It was another book that I just could not bring myself to put down. I think I am becoming a fan of Heather Boyd's very quickly. In Forsaking the Prize we get to read more about Blythe, Lady Venables and Tobias Randall. Blythe has had such a rough life with losing her husband and her young son. She just has not been able to pull herself out of mourning. Her sister questions if she will ever be the fun loving sister she remembers so well. The only time Blythe is happy is when she is visiting with her nephew. That is until Tobias enters the picture. I totally felt a connection to Blythe and the misery she has endured. This is one strong, loving woman that I feel so deserves to find her happily ever after. Tobias Randall was sent away at a young age to basically fend for himself. He was separated from his siblings after the death of his parents. He did not have an easy life and has the scars to prove it both physically and emotionally. At first Blythe and Tobias do not hitch at all. They bicker a lot but find that sparks are involved even when they are bickering. These two are exactly what the other needs. They are able to come together and help each other heal from their wounds of the past. I loved watching these two together. They have such a spark and chemistry that I found so interesting. Blythe and Tobias have a special connection that helps when they are searching for the answers to find the still missing Randall siblings. They work really well together and their attraction grows as they get to know each other better. Once again Heather Boyd has taken me on a thrilling trip to Romsey Abbey that I truly enjoyed. We learn the answer to a few questions that were left unanswered in the previous book. There are so VERY unexpected twist in this story. I can't wait to read the next book in the series and see what fabulous story Ms. Boyd has come up with next. I would highly recommend this wonderful story to any historical romance fan that enjoys a fascinating love story with some mystery thrown in.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book and want to know what happens to its characters!

    Goosebumps Book 2 in this series was riveting from beginning to end. The suspense palpable that left tingles and goosebumps upon my flesh. Yep loved Tobias and Blythe's slow reconnoitre within the boundaries of a love hate friendship through the unravelling of a puzzle within a puzzle to find love waiting.

    Stars 3/4 (Kate Pearce, Maureen Driscoll, Elisa Braden) Hey fellow readers I don’t summarize the books (as there are always great full summaries written that I read myself). 3 stars: book 2 of 4 book series. This book is worth a read but didn’t really have me excited about interacting with the book where I could not put it down.

Development and interest in main characters, secondary characters, humorous, movement of the book, writing/conversation and romantic/sexual content (1-2 scenes or too much unnecessary). Read it once and that is enough for me. However, if this book is part of a series, I would read the next book (pervious book) in the series as it would still peek my reading interest. I’ll continue reading from this author. I wouldn’t cross the author out of my potential reads in the future. As this book is part of a series, I’ll read the entire series. (Books 1,4 gave 4*, books 2,3 gave 3*)

This series is about a family ripped apart by a dastardly devil of an uncle, the old Duke of Romsey. Upon his death, the first book (Engaging the Enemy) began with Leopold, the oldest of the Randall siblings, returning to the ancestral home to find what happened to his family. We begin book two with Leopold finding his youngest brother Tobias. Returning home after being kidnapped at 14 years old and forced to work for ten years at sea, Tobias is the hero of Forsaking the Prize. After surviving the perils of the sea aboard ships, slavers, and whalers, as well as brutal beatings, Tobias finds it harder to return to genteel society and learning the proper way of conducting himself as a gentleman and how to speak to a lady. He is determined to marry wealth and live the way he wants. What he did not expect to find was a woman whose quiet, haunting beauty and bone-deep sorrow filling his every waking thought. Blythe, Lady Venables, still grieves for her dead husband and son. While visiting her sister Mercy (from book one) at her home, she is astonished to meet another long-lost Randall, the brutish Tobias. As much as she tries to avoid him, the more she is fascinated by this wild man and his untamed ways. As they are drawn to each other, both try to help their siblings figure out who is leaving bloody messages for Mercy, as well as trying to figure out where the two remaining Randalls were spirited away to. I loved this book and couldn’t put it down. Tobias returns with thoughts of revenge against the old Romsey, but he becomes a staunch ally for the family, and for the lovely woman he begins to care for. Blythe learns that she does not have to live her life still in mourning for what she lost, and that she can find another to fill her life and her heart with love. My respect and admiration for this author has grown even more with this book, and I can’t wait to read the next in the series.

Who is behind strange accidents? Will either Oliver or Rosemary be found? Your answers await you in Forsaking The Prize. This was definitely fast paced historical romance. I found it to be an easy read that flowed really well. I simply adored Tobias and Blythe together such a perfect fit as couple. Tobias' roguish ways were charming and appealing in an alpha male way. Blythe being witty, smart, and observant of those around her. I have several favorite scenes but I'm afraid I'd spoil the story sharing them here. I will definitely read more of this author's work.

    It is probably a good idea to read “Engaging the Enemy” first. This book picks up where the other ended. Not having read the first book, it took me a while to figure out the missing pieces. It might be a good idea if this book included some sort of introduction or prologue with background info for those who haven’t read “Engaging”. The story focuses on Tobias Randall and Blythe. Tobias had a hard life and he has inner and outer scars. He is a rascal and a pirate, both sweet and sexy. Blythe is a It is probably a good idea to read “Engaging the Enemy” first.

Despite their differences they unite to solve a family mystery, and of course they fall in love. I think I would have enjoyed this book more if I had read the first one, but once you get into the story it is a delightful read. The intricacies of the Randall family are very intriguing, and the characters are original. It seems this series will continue with two other siblings. Copy received by author for review.

    Forsaking the Prize is Book 2 in The Wild Randalls with Engaging the Enemy the first book. This story is about Blythe and Tobias, she who everyone thought was unstable and he who had nothing but revenge on his mind. I thoroughly enjoyed the story from start to finish and actually stayed up until the wee hours to finish it in a day! We again see Mercy and Leopold from Book 1 and are still following the story of the Randall siblings and aspects of that are woven throughout the novel.

There were a lot of little things about the story I liked one especially was how she called him a pirate and he called her B. The plot was easy to follow and didn't take away from the romance of their blossoming relationship. Heather Boyd is a wonderful storyteller and you won't be disappointed if you give this one a try. Read the first one if you can but if not you can definitely follow along without the back story.

    ooh - what a joyride this book was. That pirate! Devilicious! Mouthwateringly sexy. Bold and brave and still so honorable and understanding, even though he acts and talks nothing like that. The scene where he's lying on her bed? I had a very clear picture of this in my head (might be Once Upon A time influenced...) and it made me fall hard for him. Especially when we hear about the past he had to overcome. And Lady Prim and Proper - I so felt for her. Her world was turned upside down, from one s ooh - what a joyride this book was. That pirate!

And Lady Prim and Proper - I so felt for her. Her world was turned upside down, from one second to the next nobody trusts her anymore, her family is falling to pieces and my heart cried out for her. I could totally relate and her feelings were strong and totally understandable the whole time. I loved how their story developed and even the strange surprise at the end didn't faze me. This really was a tremendously good read - so off to the next book in the series!

    A wonderful book with Blythe trying to be proper and teaching Tobias how to be a gentleman!! All Tobias wants is Blythe to help him but she still morns her husband and child even though it's been over 2 years. When Blythe's brother-n-law rents her home for the summer she stays with her sister at Romsey and tries to clear her name since she is accused of some terrible misdeeds. A great read with a surprise ending!!

    I enjoyed this book. I thought Tobias was a great hero and I was surprised how much I liked Blythe - she was so prim and prissy in the first book, I wasn't sure I even want to read this one. I am happy to say I misjudged her and loved seeing her blossom in this story. This was a wonderful story of coming to terms with grief and learning to move on with life. I look forward to Oliver's story next.

    I love this series. Tobias and Blythe were great. She so prim and proper and him a little rough around the edges but loved their sexual tension and couldn't wait to finish to see what happen next. I already started on Oliver's book. I would recommend this series it is very entertaining.
