Lord Alaric Wilde, son of the Duke of Lindow, is the most celebrated man in England, revered for his dangerous adventures and rakish good looks. Arriving home from years abroad, he has no idea of his own celebrity until his boat is met by mobs of screaming ladies. Alaric escapes to his father's castle, but just as he grasps that he's not only famous but notorious, he encounters the very private, very witty Miss Willa Fynche.

I have a hard time reviewing the actual story because the narration was too distracting.

This is exactly the type of romance I love. full of witt and loveable characters. it was also really well performed. I loved both Chase and Alex and the inventiveness surrounding the two girls had me laughing out loud much of the book.

Desperation has led Anne-Sophia Duncombe to a life of exile. Still, she is always just one mistake away from capture and a marriage she would rather die than endure. As a last resort to remain hidden from her former life, Sophia attempts a radical scheme: a life of humility and disguise. Rumor has it that Wilhelm Montegue, the Earl of Devon, is insane. A tormented war hero haunted by scandal, he is only tolerated because of his brilliant mind and swarthy good looks.

I just adore this book. There are so many cookie cutter Regency romance books with half baked or half wit characters, these two were not. They are intentionally written as unusual for their time and while I don't fully research what is or is not appropriate, I dont care. Our heroine is intelligent and patient, curious and brave. Her back and forth with the hero is delightfully written. is it totally believable? er... no. I still don't care. The characters are everything and I fell in love with them both. I don't t tend to reread books but these two I like to revisit from time to time. the reader did a delightful job with the heroine. If you like strong female leads and broken but fierce heros and also intelligent writing, I predict you will love this one. If you are a history buff and deviations make you twitch, maybe this isn't for you.

Adair Thorne has just watched his gaming-hell dream disappear into a blaze of fire and ash, and he’s certain that his competitors, the Killorans, are behind it. His fury and passion burn even hotter when he meets Cleopatra Killoran, a tart-mouthed vixen who mocks him at every turn. If she were anyone else but the enemy, she’d ignite a desire in him that would be impossible to control. No one can make Cleopatra do anything. That said, she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her siblings - even if that means being sponsored by their rivals for a season in order to land a noble husband.

a lot of this book just seemed forced. I was not really convinced of these 2 and had many eye roll moments. maybe the reading in the super deep voice contributed to the grating on my nerves. sorry. not my thing.

It is 1921 and Mary Russell - Sherlock Holmes's brilliant apprentice, now an Oxford graduate with a degree in theology - is on the verge of acquiring a sizable inheritance. Independent at last, with a passion for divinity and detective work, her most baffling mystery may now involve Holmes and the burgeoning of a deeper affection between herself and the retired detective.

I have never read an original Sherlock Holmes and have never read any other mystery for that matter. I did however enjoy the first of the series immensly. Not so much with this one. I don't want to give away anything but the whole story was just too much for me and a little off putting in content.
