BREAKING THE RULES once again brings the Harte women to center stage. M is rocked by tragedy but she rises like a phoenix and succeeds on her own merit. She is unwilling to use her family name to get ahead and manages to find a man who loves her for her, not her fortune or fame. The Harte women are still the backbone of the family and it was nice to see each of them interwoven into the storyline. I thought it was ingenious how they found a way to use Jonathan Ainsley’s weakness for money against him. Ingenious yet simple. Overall, BREAKING THE RULES is a welcome addition to Ms. Bradford’s repertoire and a must read for fans of the Harte family.
