MY NEW RELEASE REVIEW of

Alice’s Shameless Spinster’s Society

876849805

The Spinster’s Society

A Regency Romance Book

by Charlotte Stone

Published September 11th 2017

ASIN: B075K91KCT

An Indy Author Published Book

Publisher’s Description:

Miss Alice Wilkin has had her heart broken and declares herself done with men…
But she never expected to fall for a notorious rake.

As the daughter of one of London’s elite gentleman’s club, she’s been given insight into the private affairs of men and should have known that men could not be trusted.

But when bullets begin to fly, that same rake not only declares himself her protector but makes her break the very vow she made to protect her heart.

Mr. Calvin Lockwood has always been attracted to Alice.
He’ll do what he must to earn Alice’s trust again even:
1- if it means hunting down murderers,
2- war with his family and friends,
3- and confronting his past even though he’d rather not.

And… it will not even matter when the Spinster Society, a group of pretty young women who’ve sworn off men, gets a hold of Alice and declares her one of their own.

How does a man convince a woman to open her heart once again?
Perhaps it will only take a kiss…
Perhaps it will take more.

 Seduction has never been sweeter and spinsterhood never more complex.

My Thoughts:

Having read many of this author’s books I found it refreshing that she now includes scenes of a more sensual nature in her writing. This is the second book in this series and it has a bit more sensuality than the first one. So if you prefer no intimate scenes like in earlier books by this author, this book is not for you.
Although it is the second book of the series it does read well as a standalone since there are not that many characters that cross over from book #1.
Be prepared for a bumpy ride between Alice and Calvin.
I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy is still not extremely explicit but it is very warm.
I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the author to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

The Series:

  1. Lady Lorena’s Spinster’s Society
  2. Alice’s Shameless Spinster’s Society

Both of these books are available for $0.99 to buy at Amazon or to read FREE with KindleUnlimited.

 

About The Author:

In a near cynical world which we are currently living in, Charlotte finds comfort in the readings of Regency Romance writings, one of her favourite would be Laura Kinsale’s Flowers from the storm where the female character loves and saves the male lead character who is a stroke victim. It was such writings which inspired her to be an author herself.

In Charlotte’s writings, the characters are able to see beyond the imperfections of each other and to accept and love one another, just the way one is.

Isn’t this true of our inner self?
To be able to find someone who is able to see the beauty in us, in spite of all imperfections we might have.
Isn’t this true of what love really should be?
Ever accepting, ever loving, ever seeking.

May you find love and acceptance in Charlotte’s writings.

Publisher’s Description:

Will Rose and Hunter overcome their differences and embrace true love?

Rose Woodcourt, a poor seamstress, is too proud to accept help, even when her home and freedom are threatened by the nefarious Mr. Wolfe. Especially not from Hunter Thorne, a titled gentleman far above her station. Earls only court common misses for one reason, and Rose has no interest in being a wealthy man’s mistress–however handsome and charming he may be.

Hunter is an honorable man; he refuses to turn his back on the spirited beauty regardless of how hard she pushes him away. As Mr. Wolfe’s threats evolve into actions Rose has little choice but to turn to Hunter.

Can the pair put an end to Wolfe’s nefarious deeds before Rose loses everything she holds dear, including her freedom?

Publisher’s Description:

Feared as a demon because of his two different colored eyes, as well as by his outlandish actions, Highlander, Onyx MacKeefe is known as a madman. While celebrating his birthday one cold night at a Lowland pub, he meets a bonnie Englishwoman who says she is searching for her father’s murderer and thief. And when he recognizes the name of the person she seeks as his own mother, his birthday takes a bad turn.

Lady Loveday de Lacy, known as Lovelle, comes looking for not only a murderer from the past, but also something that’s been stolen – her mother’s Book of Hours. She is desperate to find it, as she needs the help of the mystical charms at the back of the book. But when she meets a rugged Highlander who takes her captive in order to secure his mother’s life, she finds herself being reckless, and also attracted to the dangerous man. But things only become more complicated as Lovelle and Onyx find themselves needing each other, but knowing they are enemies. And the more they try to fight off the attraction between them, the stronger it becomes. But neither of them see the harrowing future in store for them as Onyx is faced with demons of his past and there is also an outbreak of the plague that threatens their very lives.

Can a proper Englishwoman and a Scottish madman find the strength and will to work together before impending doom overtakes them?

(Author’s note: Onyx is the brother of the girls from the Daughters of the Dagger Series.)
