As mentioned in the previous review, the male leads are in a different situation than found in most Regency romances. The female leads are not so well developed with the most interesting woman being the sister of the brothers.

"Redemption" is one of Jaimey Grant's earlier works. In this tale, twins Miles and Darius fall in love with twins Jenny and Gwen. While this may seem a trifle cliched, Grant handles the matter deftly and has some unusual twists thrown into the mix. Miles and Dare are the sons of a gentleman while Jenny and Gwen are the daughters of a duke; therein lies the first problem. The second problem is Dare's reputation as a rakehell.
As always, Grant's book is rich with Regency period detail about manners and mores, attire, furniture -- you name it. The story is well-written.
Unfortunately, I had a hard time connecting with either of the purported heroines, whom I found myself describing as conniving. Others may not see them that way. By the same token, I found Dare a rather refreshing change from the standard issue Regency romance heroes.
I think that Regency readers, and those who like a clean romance novel, will find a great deal to enjoy here.

Jaimey Grant’s "Redemption" thrills the emotions. Her main character grabbed my interest from the first page. Dare, Darius Prestwich, is a rogue with an almost invisible honorable streak. The heroine, Lady Genevieve Northwicke, or Jenny, was not as colorful, but she caught my interest and held it. Above all she appears to be a good fit for Dare. Both characters made some choices that surprised and shocked me. It took me a while to process some of the off-page behavior. I was forewarned, though, that Ms. Grant’s fiction tends toward the rougher side of Regency fare.
The plot moved like a runaway phaeton, sweeping the reader along behind barely controlled horseflesh. Don’t expect much opportunity to observe the scenery. I never lost interest as I eagerly plunged onward. I particularly enjoyed the supporting cast and the biting and quick dialogue that filled the novel’s pages. All the characters and their interactions made me eager to meet them again. Also, Grant’s descriptions delighted me. I found myself highlighting sentences just so I could revisit my favorites again.
Overall, "Redemption" is an exciting and engaging read. I enjoyed it and I am looking forward to reading my next acquisition by her, "Deception."
