"WOW HOT ROMANTIC HISTORICAL ROMANCE!!"
The relationship building and banter between the lead characters Gavin Hunt and Percy Fines.
Percy sneaking through the hidden corridor of the gaming hell the Underworld and what she saw!
The confrontation between Gavin and Nicholas at long last. The truth of what happen one faithfuls night when they were young boys in the stews!
It made laugh and cry. When Hugh Steward died so sad!!
Very Good sensual and romantic well written story!! With great characters.
This was so much better than the first book in the series. Granted, the sex scenes are more graphic and crude than most other regencies I've read but the story was much better. I had many issues with narration, however. Pronunciation. For instance, The "O" in "Covent" (Garden) was pronounced like Covert; "Ton" being pronounced like "tun". I can't remember the other words right now (meant to write them down) but I found it very distracting.
I'm glad I read this second book. The characters were likable and the story was good. I'm glad there are more in this series.
"My new favorite author and series!"
You know when you pick up a book with zero expectations and get blown away when you read it? This is one of those books for me. I had not read anything from this author and knew nothing of the series and now the series and the author is on my "favorite" list.
The main characters bring on the tension and angst, but they also bring the funny banter, charm, and sweet romance. Percy is adorable- headstrong and loyal, so much so, that she would risk facing the devil himself to try to save her brother from ruin. She is a genuinely good person with inclinations to adventure and mystique which, in her opinion, make for titillating writing inspiration. Gavin is a historical bad boy with enough brains to have propelled himself into building a fortune. He has a sordid past and holds a fierce grudge. So, when he realizes that Percy can be a pawn in his scheme for revenge, and a tempting little minx to boot, he feels like he'll finally have his cake and eat it too.
This book has all the components I enjoy in a romance novel: well developed characters, witty banter, smoking hot love scenes, and a tight over-arching plot to move the story along.
This was the first book I read in the series and I did not find myself lost or wondering. I have since devoured the rest of the books in the series that are available in audio form and I can say that they can be stand alone books.
Narrator Erin Mallon
Excellent narration. Great tone, pace, and distinction. I enjoyed listening to this through headphones and through the speakers in my car.
"Passion, love, plot twists. I LOVED it!!!"
I highly, highly recommend this book. Very witty and has some funny parts as well. I liked the love development between the two main characters and the passion was hot enough to make you sizzle. Now I cannot get into the book I just started by a different author ☺. Can’t say enough good things about this book.
I loved this series so much I was able to endure the irritating narrator.
I found that if I listened at x1.25 speed it was much better.
"Fantastic Story, Loved it!!"
What a great story. Loved the plot, the H&H, the hot and steamy sex. If you read the first book in this series, Her Husbands Harlot, you know there is a lot of sex in that book. This book was a lot tamer. I totally loved Percy she was funny, strong, witty and had spunk for days. Gavin was just awesome, loved his back story and they way the author brought book 1 and 2 together.
Narration I give 3.5 stars. And I had to listen to it on 1.25 speed otherwise it was to slow.
