    An arrogant duke does the unthinkable - he falls in love with his mistress.... She raced onto the green, desperate to stop a duel. In the mêlée, Jocelyn Dudley, Duke of Tresham, was shot. To his astonishment, Tresham found himself hiring the servant as his nurse. Jane Ingleby was far too bold for her own good. Her blue eyes were the sort a man could drown in - were it not for her impudence. She questioned his every move, breached his secrets, touched his soul. When he offered to set her up in his London town house, love was the last thing on his mind.

    Any additional comments?

    This is my first book by Mary Balogh and I must say I loved the push and pulls between the duke and Jane in this book. The two main characters fall in love, though initially both refuse to admit to it. Unlike most other books, here the arguments and strong personalities keeps the story more engaging and therefore the interactions and love scenes more intense. The duke's inability to accept his likes and wants makes him very mercurial in nature. Though a typical historical romance the behavior of the characters keep you guessing all the way to the end and so I loved this book and recommend it fully.

    Story

    I LOVED this book. Such a surprise to find it. I never considered reading erotica because I was worried the storyline would be too torturous. This should have been under contemporary romance and not erotica. The first sex scene happened halfway through the book, but don't get me wrong, you won't miss it because the story is so engaging.
    What I thought as I read the book was WOW. This story is so full of action (things happening constantly) that it seemed like it actually happened because none can come up with such a complicated storyline. None of it was forced and the very well developed characters were so real you can't help but to love them all. Even the "bad guys" were people you felt for. AaaaaaaMA*****ZING. Trust me when I say you will not go wrong with this book if you like contemporary romance. Sex is sprinkled in there but by no means overpowering the story. Just the right amount. Now my only question is why can we not find real guys like this? Oh well. We can all dream at least :)

    Edward Crawdon, Duke of Hartridge, is being forced by his slightly overbearing but loving mother to spend time with her old friends at their estate in Ireland. He does not know it, but a contract exists between the two families stating that Edward must marry their eldest daughter.On the day of his arrival, Edward meets Lady Rebecca, Caroline's younger sister, under very unusual circumstances. Edward cannot stop thinking about Lady Rebecca, but she is completely unsuited to being a duchess.

    Story

    This was actually a good story and a definitely 4 star worthy effort on Nadine Millard's part, but again as so many romance novels do, the story ran flat soon after. There were moments where the story was more entertaining and moments where it dragged on. Overall entertaining and if you are looking for a historical romance and are okay with a not very challenging love story but one where the issues get solved easily and without much fuss then this could be a possibility for you.

    The daughter of a titled wastrel, Lady Isabel Townsend has too many secrets and too little money. Though she is used to taking care of herself quite handily, her father's recent passing has left Isabel at sea and in need of outside help to protect her young brother's birthright. The sinfully handsome, eminently eligible Lord Nicholas could be the very salvation she seeks. But the lady must be wary and not do anything reckless and foolish…like falling madly, passionately in love.

    Story

    It's confusing when the books are not listed in a series as they are supposed to be. Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake is the first in this series. The third book is Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke's Heart and the fourth is being released soon but is actually marked as the fourth book under another series. They are all connected books. VERY strange.
    This book was cute but not quite as cute as the first. The personalities introduced are all super likable but although the book was entertaining, I guess the easiest way for me to explain it is by saying I was not glued to it. The story was just not as grabbing. Finally the one to the last chapter the story upped it's excitement factor and ended on a great note. So this will not be a loss of time or point if you read it, of course, it's just good knowing you will not be reading a five star story and then you may like it more :) wen your expectations are lower.

Not when Lady Ophelia Lyttleton snubs him at every turn, a constant reminder he's not truly one of them. But after rescuing her from a mysterious drowning, he realizes she doesn't remember who she is. With plans to bring her to heel, he insists she's his housekeeper - never expecting to fall for the charming beauty.

    Story

    What a delicious way to get revenge. I won't bore you with a repeat of what has been said already about the storyline by other reviewers but I thought his revenge was short lived. I actually found the entire memory loss and Drake taking advantage of it all very humorous except that it did not go very far and the book quickly turned into serious and heavy. I was not glued to the book but I found it to be entertaining and I enjoyed reading it but it lacked that draw for me.

    The follow-up to the runaway bestsellers On Dublin Street and Down London Road. Despite her outgoing demeanor, Olivia is painfully insecure around the opposite sex - usually, she can't get up the nerve to approach guys she's interested in. But moving to Edinburgh has given her a new start, and, after she develops a crush on a sexy postgrad, she decides it's time to push past her fears and go after what she wants. Nate Sawyer is a gorgeous player who never commits, but to his close friends, he's as loyal as they come.

    I absolutely LOVED this book. The first book in the series is still my favorite but this book was wonderful. The story was engaging, characters well developed, and of course a handsome hero with a past he needed to work through. I liked this book so much so that I finished it all in one day. I could NOT stop. You won't either if you give it a chance.

    She’s crept back into the home she lost. He’s crept into her heart. Sophie Russell was once society’s darling. But after the disgrace and death of her father, she now finds all doors firmly shut to her - including those of her family home. To discover the secrets now hidden within its beloved walls, she’ll pose as a cook and spy on the estate’s new owner, a broodingly handsome viscount, who may have schemed against the Russells. Instead of dishing up the truth, the viscount tempts Sophie with delicacies of his own…

    yes still too much time is spent talking about what is going on in the main character's head but beyond that the book was excellent. I loved the story and found myself drawn to the book. The mistaken identity and conversations leading to her getting deflowered by the lord were hilarious. One was talking about food while the other thought the conversations were about sex and how she could satisfy his "every need". Clever story and sweet ending.

    Few outsiders will ever witness the dark misdeeds of the Heavenly Host. And among this secret society, where exiled Georgian aristocrats gather to indulge their carnal desires, fewer still can match the insatiable appetite of their chief provocateur, the mysterious Viscount Rohan. Pursuit of physical pleasure is both his preferred pastime and his most pressing urge, until he encounters the fascination of a woman who won't be swayed.

    Story

    Anne Stuart did a great job building characters in this book. I felt Rohan's was conveyed so perfectly that I could imagine him vividly in my mind's eye. He is crude and caring and strong and cruel and reprobate all packaged in the same person. Both sisters were very sweet and strong when it came to protecting one another and their loved ones. The affectionate souls were very nicely portrayed as well.

    I have very mixed emotions about this book. In one hand the story was good and engaging and characters were so very well developed, but in the other, I feel less mind ramble should have been put in the story. It almost takes away from how good the story can be especially when some thoughts are repetitious or too much of it is given throughout the book. Other than that I fully enjoyed the book and am sure your will too.

    One woman embarks on the adventure of a lifetime when she meets a man with irrepressible passion and a penchant for peril Samantha Barrett is looking for a hero. He can’t be just any man, but one worthy of her girlish fantasies. Dashing. Dangerous. Forbidden. Exactly like the mesmerizingly handsome stranger who just strode into the smoky tavern. Except he isn’t a stranger, he’s Remington Worth, earl of Gresham. London’s most notorious rake.

    Story

    Another great story. So very different than the first book, but that is what I liked about it. Different in that the heroine falls in love with the hero immediately as she sets eyes on him and is not shy to express it to him. She is also extremely innocent and open about her feelings and very trusting. I have honestly not read a book where the heroine so openly verbally praises the hero without any worries or insecurities. Refreshing to say the least.

    The characters are also all very likable as in the first book and the story very engaging. Wish there were more characters to write another book about. :( since I have enjoyed these two books so much. Perhaps we can hope...

    What a happy and engaging story. I enjoyed it so much that I finished the book in one day and purchased the next one even though I have four other purchased books to read. Even though times were so rigid I can completely see Alex's character fitting as it is written. The Duke is also such a complex character who is very strong, and yet soft and gentle for his heroine. I loved this book and ALL the characters in it. Though a serious story, there are some funny lines in the book that also made me laugh out loud. You will not be disappointed.

    I doubt I can read anything else until I am done with all her books on Audible. Anita Mills develops her characters so fully that by the end of the book you are left pining for more.

    One of those books you wish had a part two and three so that you can just keep reading. Again, as in her style, there is only one quick love scene and the end comes too abruptly I feel when you are not quite ready to let the story go yet.

    I absolutely loved and enjoyed this book and am so grateful I have found her. Great writing, well developed characters, clear expression of passion and love without heavy sex and very well developed and thought out storyline. Purchase with confidence.
