    Just my opinion, but this was just a fluffy, oversexed wallpaper romance with a unbelievable plot that went on and on and on and on and on Can Amy Amethyst the jeweler marry Colin Chase, Earl of Greystone Or will he dump her for the wealthy heiress he s already formally betrothed to And why isn t there one single person shocked at the idea of a lowly tradesperson marrying above her station Oh well, I see others have enjoyed it, but I didn t care for the characters, Amy being a bit too MaryS Just my opinion, but this was just a fluffy, oversexed wallpaper romance with a unbelievable plot that went on and on and on and on and on Can Amy Amethyst the jeweler marry Colin Chase, Earl of Greystone Or will he dump her for the wealthy heiress he s already formally betrothed to And why isn t there one single person shocked at the idea of a lowly tradesperson marrying above her station Oh well, I see others have enjoyed it, but I didn t care for the characters, Amy being a bit too MarySue ish, and Colin a bit of a self centered arse I m not a big fan of practical jokes find them a bit mean , and Colin s went over and above any acceptable levels YMMV Moving on to the next book and zapping this one to Kindle oblivion Glad it was free

    Amethyst Amy Goldsmith and Robert Stanley had been betrothed since she was born, and he was currently an apprentice in her father s jewelry shop As time came nearer for her wedding, Amy expressed her reluctance and begged her father to call off the wedding After tragedy strikes taking her father s life, Amy finds refuge with the Chase family until Robert spots her in public and realizes she must have saved her family s fortune His maniacal scheme to marry her so that he can get his hands on Amethyst Amy Goldsmith and Robert Stanley had been betrothed since she was born, and he was currently an apprentice in her father s jewelry shop As time came nearer for her wedding, Amy expressed her reluctance and begged her father to call off the wedding After tragedy strikes taking her father s life, Amy finds refuge with the Chase family until Robert spots her in public and realizes she must have saved her family s fortune His maniacal scheme to marry her so that he can get his hands on her family s inheritance, whether she is willing or not The darkness brought about by Robert Stanley s irrational persona and deranged force was certainly something I could have done without I never liked the depraved fellow, which was probably the point This was the introductory installation for the sweet and clean version of the Chase Family series, which I for one was delighted to discover by Lauren and Devon Royal The Chase family are a diverse group, yet they are fiercely loyal to one another Colin was the prankster and consistently played practical jokes on his family members This was not a traditional historical romance story It actually seemslike a fairytale of sorts.Robert s role definitely makes the reader seeking a clean read a bit wary and hesitant about completing the book However, completing the book was well worth it, since the H.E.A should meet with most reader s approval The book is able to stand on its own Each successive installment will provide the opportunity to learnabout the other members of the family in future installations of this series Completing this nonconventional historical romance book was well worth it, since the H.E.A should meet with most reader s approval Read on and enjoy

    Started out good, I liked the setting and time period and learning a little bitabout the London fires of 1666 I read a lot of historicals, but I am definitely far from an expert Despite the setting and time period, this just didn t feel like a historical The characters didn t really act or speak how I would expect them to for the time period and their stations As for the characters, I wasn t really a fan I thought Colin was very immature and didn t really care for some of his mean spi Started out good, I liked the setting and time period and learning a little bitabout the London fires of 1666 I read a lot of historicals, but I am definitely far from an expert Despite the setting and time period, this just didn t feel like a historical The characters didn t really act or speak how I would expect them to for the time period and their stations As for the characters, I wasn t really a fan I thought Colin was very immature and didn t really care for some of his mean spirited practical jokes did they use the term practical joke in the 1600s The joke he played on his fianc e was very very rude and childish I also didn t like that he was basically cheating on his fianc e with Amy He didn t treat Amy or his fianc e very well I just never liked him very much, he needed a lot of growing up, IMO The pacing and different events felt off and when I thought it should have ended it just kept going and going I had a hard time really enjoying this one I really appreciate that the author has written this series to be cleaner reads, I love when authors do that.Content Clean romance, closed door fade to black intimacy, an attempted rape

    The book wasn t bad.I rather enjoyed it most of the time.but the scenes where the hero is throwing tantrums and telling his siblings how unfit and working class the heroine is I wanted to punch him.I also wanted to shake the heroine everytime she wanted to stay with him despite his reckless and mean comments.like seriously he just called unfit to become his wife so you go and sleep with him anyway No and the thing is he didn t even apologize for those thingslike what Outraged The book wasn t bad.I rather enjoyed it most of the time.but the scenes where the hero is throwing tantrums and telling his siblings how unfit and working class the heroine is I wanted to punch him.I also wanted to shake the heroine everytime she wanted to stay with him despite his reckless and mean comments.like seriously he just called unfit to become his wife so you go and sleep with him anyway No and the thing is he didn t even apologize for those thingslike what Outraged but if you can get over that then it was a cute love story

    I have read another book by this author and enjoyed it It is not the writing style that threw me off, but I can t stand either the hero or the heroine I would be interested in reading another book set during the great fire in London.

    Delving into the romance genre is not for the faint of heart You can read a lot of really poorly written romances that just drag on and on and never go anywhere I however like to think that reading the poorly written ones allows you to clearly know a gem when you read one Lauren Royal s Amethyst is just that, a gem Yes, pun intended Amy Goldsmith although her real name is Amethyst is a successful jewelry maker who has quite the unfortunate personal life She is scheduled to marry a man w Delving into the romance genre is not for the faint of heart You can read a lot of really poorly written romances that just drag on and on and never go anywhere I however like to think that reading the poorly written ones allows you to clearly know a gem when you read one Lauren Royal s Amethyst is just that, a gem Yes, pun intended Amy Goldsmith although her real name is Amethyst is a successful jewelry maker who has quite the unfortunate personal life She is scheduled to marry a man whom she does not love in two short weeks To make things worse, he wants her to become a stay at home mom, and give up her career, which she is not ready to do Although she is stuck, Amy does not want to back out of the marriage for fear of embarrassing her father She longs for true love, and she gets a glimpse of it when Colin Chase, the Earl of Greystone, enters her shop Although she feels that he is definitely above his notice, her life is changed when a fire devastates her shop and home and Colin comes to her rescue He takes her to his home to rehabilitate, and although Colin s siblings take a liking to Amy, he remains distant and asks her to leave as soon as possible Amy, however, has begun to have feelings for Colin, and enjoys her time with his family Unfortunately for her, Colin is betrothed to another woman, who s dowry has been spent towards the reconstruction of Colin s castle Unwilling to break up this monetary agreement despite his attraction, Colin is locked in a battle of wills against Amy, who wants him no matter the cost Will Colin eventually reconsider and give in to is heart s desire I ve always enjoyed historical fiction novels that use true events as their backdrop, as opposed to just using a specific time period and developing a story In Amethyst that true event is the Great Fire of London in 1666 As sad as the event was, it is an excellent plot device that sets the reader on a journey of self discovery with Amy and Colin that we certainly wouldn t have dreamed of without the amazingly detailed and intricate imagination of Royal.To me, Amy read as a nod to the modern woman Your first taste of her modern ideals comes when she stands up to her fianc e, Robert, and expresses her desires to continue being a jeweler Robert s jealousy over her jeweling skills are what drive his desire to have her stay at home and give up her occupation After the fire when Amy is able to escape and meet Colin, she continues to hold onto her ideals that she can run the family jewelry business Even after finding herself in love with Colin she realizes a marriage between them would end any future she has with her craft She forces herself to make a tough decision choose love or her craft Royal does an incredible job weaving this difficult journey of staying true to self vs heart effortlessly I can honestly say that Amethyst is one of the only historical romance novels that I actually truly believed in the conflict of heart that the heroine and hero go through Every romance novel I ve read has a conflict drawing the heroine and hero away from each other, but it s rare to find one that has to do with something other than conflicting social classes Amy s need to continue her craft made for a muchinteresting conflict It was refreshing, honest, and definitely a worthy addition to anyone s to read pile Go pick up a copy Kimberly Reflections of a Book Addict

    Generous 3 stars I found myself not knowing what to rate this novel It had a lot of right ingredients Plot, well developed characters, drama However the story dragged on for quite awhile I kept thinking this is where it ends right To find out I had still quite a bit left each time Normally I like a long developed story However I felt the same theme was dragged on even after it should have been resolved many times over And it wasn t one I was big on The big theme was the heroine thinkin Generous 3 stars I found myself not knowing what to rate this novel It had a lot of right ingredients Plot, well developed characters, drama However the story dragged on for quite awhile I kept thinking this is where it ends right To find out I had still quite a bit left each time Normally I like a long developed story However I felt the same theme was dragged on even after it should have been resolved many times over And it wasn t one I was big on The big theme was the heroine thinking she wasn t good enough for the hero And then he loves her but can t marry her And then he marries her but doesn t love her On and on I found myself annoyed at the novel that in the beginning hadpotential Maybe it just wasn t my cup of tea

    Amethyst Amy Goldsmith, daughter of a jeweler, is an accomplished and talented jewelry maker who loves her craft and has a great passion for her work but her personal life is hardly as fulfilling In just two weeks she will be wed to a man whom she does not love a man who plans to keep her away from her work to make babies and keep his house all nice and tidy like Amy longs for love but will not hurt her father by backing out of the unwanted marriage One day Colin Chase Earl of Greystone Amethyst Amy Goldsmith, daughter of a jeweler, is an accomplished and talented jewelry maker who loves her craft and has a great passion for her work but her personal life is hardly as fulfilling In just two weeks she will be wed to a man whom she does not love a man who plans to keep her away from her work to make babies and keep his house all nice and tidy like Amy longs for love but will not hurt her father by backing out of the unwanted marriage One day Colin Chase Earl of Greystone walks into her family store and they immediately connect but, sadly, he is far out of her league.These first few chapters are wonderful and really hooked me The historic details are interesting and plentiful and Amy is presented as a likable and compassionate character full of life, dreams and motivation Then a devastating fire destroys her life and changes everything She now has the opportunity to take charge of her life but first is rescued by Colin who takes her to his home so she can heal from her physical and emotional wounds She quickly finds love and acceptance amongst Colin s siblings but receives only the cold shoulder from Colin who wants her gone as soon as possible Amy decides she wants Colin, cold shoulder and all, and comes up with one excuse after another to stick around.It was Colin s attraction to Amy that impelled him to rescue her and it is that same attraction that makes him want her out of his sight as soon as possible Colin is betrothed to a titled woman and has already spent a good portion of the woman s dowry and sees no way to get out of it And, lets be real, he doesn t want to For the majority of the story money and titles areimportant to Colin than love and it s here that the book lost the most of its appeal for me Colin s a first class ass and I m really not a fan.Colin and Amy are wildly attracted to each other and obviously belong together but he stubbornly refuses to break off his betrothal This makes him come across as extremely selfish Amy deserved so much better Amy, unfortunately, loses some of her charm because she is forced into the role of pining away for the stubborn Colin instead of concentrating on getting back on her feet The jewelry crafting, which was such a huge part of her life, takes a back to seat to thoughts of Colin and this was very disappointing.This story is a good choice if you like your books steeped in historic detail and don t mind love stubborn heroes The author has an obvious love for her time period and weaves in interesting tidbits whenever possible Although Colin didn t turn out to be my idea of a hero to put it mildly I do look forward to the forthcoming stories about Colin s siblings who were lovable characters

    This was a hard book to rate I realized that this is a clean version of Amethyst There were parts that I thought were unrealistic, and that figures, because they probably had a very different result in the other version of the book.The setting is during the fires in London in the 1600 s Charles II has just returned to his throne I loved that the setting was different than other stories that I have read I imagine that the book follows a realistic social expectation of Amethyst and Collin Th This was a hard book to rate I realized that this is a clean version of Amethyst There were parts that I thought were unrealistic, and that figures, because they probably had a very different result in the other version of the book.The setting is during the fires in London in the 1600 s Charles II has just returned to his throne I loved that the setting was different than other stories that I have read I imagine that the book follows a realistic social expectation of Amethyst and Collin They were obviously attracted to each other, but a relationship between them wasn t prudent due to their social status That part of the story was tedious, because it was mentioned every time someone noticed the attraction between the two.This was a light romance There are difficult scenes to read Amethyst has a betrothed jerk, and he does some very jerky things I don t want to mention it, in case you read the book I will only say there is a near rape, for those sensitive to that situation.I purchased a copy of this book for FREE on kindle

    read a while ago but couldn t remember to review rather forgettable story i did not understand the appeal of the heroine She was good at her trade and fell in love with the hero when he asked her to create a piece for him I don t see the appeal of such a woman and have no interests in her love story.
