A love of archery brings four young girls together to form The Lady Archer’s Creed. Through their mutual love of the sport, they solidify an unbreakable bond, and each woman has a unique quality that adds to their dynamic friendship:
Theodora, Lady Archer’s Creed Series (Book One) Lady Theodora with her sharp mind and love of academics becomes the perfect archery coach. Despite being the last to join their group, and the obvious outcast, she will risk her future for her friends.
Georgina, Lady Archer’s Creed Series (Book Two) Lady Georgina makes the perfect financier. The forgotten daughter of a wealthy duke, she seeks to belong to something—or someone—by any means necessary.
Adeline, Lady Archer’s Creed Series (Book Three) Miss Adeline is a natural leader. Having grown up in a large and often spirited family, she now allows no one to place her in the shadows.
Josephine, Lady Archer’s Creed Series (Book Four) Lady Josephine, having a sweet and impressionable nature, strives to please everyone—and keep their bond intact, even after they return to London for the Season.
Adeline, Georgie, Theo, and Josie live each day by the Lady Archer’s Creed, which they developed during their school days at Miss Emmeline’s School of Education and Decorum for Ladies of Outstanding Quality. “Friendship, loyalty, and honor above all” is their mantra. Now, as they face the challenges that come with adulthood, the creed is more important than ever.
Adeline is dropping her sisters off at Miss Emmeline’s School of Education and Decorum for Ladies of Outstanding Quality. This is the same school that she went to where she met the ladies of the Archer’s Creed. On her way back from the school her carriage breaks down in a storm. Jasper Benedict finds her and graciously invites her into his home. He is not used to being around people given that he has scars from a fire that killed his family. Adeline gets a taste of Jasper’s world and can see the man he is beyond the scars. Jasper wants to be an ordinary man so he can be the one that courts Adeline. He does not think he is what the beautiful lady needs, so he keeps his distance. Adeline tries to overcome his reservations.
In an Oyster Shell – This is the book that has me signing up for everything Christina Mcknight.
The Pearls – The series is original. It’s about a group of lady archers in the regency period. Their skill level is unheard of in the Ton. They defy society’s expectations, and I like that. I have read a couple of books in the series, and each one is a member of the Archer’s creed. Following each story is fun. I especially liked this story with Adeline.
Adeline was a character of great strength. She had all the decorum of a lady of the Ton but had a streak of rebelliousness that made her refreshing. Jasper was a bit of an elusive character at first but grows into someone that you want to cheer for. I liked seeing characters that I got to know in the other books. It is fun to see their story continue through the lens of the main character.
The setting starting in Jasper’s estate was nice. That is what I like most about this author’s stories. She takes care of details of settings and such that make you feel like you are right there in the story. When the story moves to London, you get the feel of how it is in Regency times. It transports the reader.
The Sand – It was a good book
