This is a great first book in a new series by Adele Clee. I have read every one of her books and listened to quite a few and have never been disappointed. And this new book is no exception. The characters are well developed. The story is fast-paced. There are a lot of funny remarks that made me laugh out loud and I absolutely loved the banter between hero and heroine. And though she was annoying at times, I even liked the maid. I am very much looking forward to the next book in this new series. And, as with all the other books she narrated, Ms. Ivary did a great job.

I love the Rogues to Riches series and this book is no exception. I enjoyed meeting the previous characters again. Heath's sisters are just so much fun. The historical aspect (poor relations and their 'betters') was well described. I couldn't wait to see how the heroine's problem was resolved. The story kept me entertained and glued to the audiobook to the very last page. And I thoroughly enjoyed the narrator. Highly recommended!

Having spent years living in the shadow of his brother’s scandalous reputation, Anthony Dempsey fought hard to regain the credibility of his family name. His unwavering sense of duty is renowned and admired. But then tragedy strikes. Threatened with ruination, he withdraws from society to hide his secret and protect all those close to him. How ironic that he should finally meet a woman who captures more than his interest. Indeed, Sarah Roxbury is a dazzling beauty who ignites the flame of passion in his heart, awakens a craving deep in his core.

Another great book by Adele Clee. I do love historical romance; especially those with a mystery to solve. Ms. Clee always delivers well thought-out mysteries with characters one has to fall in love with. This particular story is well paced and there is not a dull moment. It's a mystery with a surprising turn of events. And, of course, a happy ending. I highly recommend this book to all lovers of romance books.

Seventeen-year-old tagger Saira Elian can handle anything...a mother who mysteriously disappears, a stranger who stalks her around London, and even the noble English Grandmother who kicked Saira and her mother out of the family. But when an old graffiti tag in a tube station transports Saira to the 19th Century and she comes face-to-face with Jack the Ripper, she realizes she needs help after all. Saira meets Archer, a charming student who helps her blend in as much as a tall, modern American teen can in Victorian England.

Renowned for being the most dangerous lord of the ton, ladies are scheming to bed him. Jealous men are plotting to drive a blade through his cold heart.

This book is so much more than a love story with a touch of mystery. This is the journey of two tortured souls kept apart by greed and treachery. I instantly fell in love with the hero and heroine. I cried for them and prayed for their happy ending. Ms Clee did an outstanding job portraying them. And, as always in books written by this excellent author, the mysteries surrounding our couple left me turning page after page in anticipation of what was going to happen next. This is another well-executed storyline and I hope there will be more. I highly recommend every book in this series. The Daring Miss Darcy can be read as a standalone but all four books in the series are wonderful. The narrator is also doing a wonderful job. The more I listen to her the more I enjoy her performance.

I loved this book. A spy story with twists and turns. It kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. Every time I thought I got it figured out the story took another turn. And the banter between the two main characters was so much fun that I actually laughed out loud a few times. Ms Clee did a great job telling the story and I will read/listen to more of her books for sure. The narrator was very pleasant to listen to with just the right amount of emphasis when necessary.

This is a nice little story, easy to read, with likeable characters and no detailed sex scenes. The banter between the two main characters is funny and truly enjoyable. Even though the book is short it does have all the ingredients expected from a romance novel, including a devious ex-mistress. I recommend this to all Regency romance lovers. The narrator did a good job in getting the story across.

Why, the latest on-dit is that rakish Viscount Sheffield is canceling the fete of the year because he hasn't time for silly soirees. He doesn't need time - he needs her!

Unfortunately, I could not connect with the characters in this book. The storyline itself is fine but I didn't care for any of the characters. And it didn't help that the historical aspect of the story wasn't always accurate. It might just be me but I do like historical stories because they give you some insight into life long gone. If they are correct. I did, however, enjoy the narration. Brian J. Gill did an excellent job.
