The 1797 Club Book 6

by Jess Michaels

Historical Fiction , Romance

Lucas Vincent may be the Duke of Willowby but he’s never acted as such. He’s been too busy working for the War Department as a spy. But years of dangerous work has finally caught up to him and he was involved in a violent attack that nearly killed him. Forced home, his angry, aggressive desire to get back in the field and find out to who betrayed him is keeping him from healing.

Diana Oakford was raised by a physician who served the King’s War Department and she knows better than most the dangers that job entails. She was also trained in healing, so when she’s asked to come and assist with Lucas’s recovery she has a hard time refusing.

Once they’re alone together an unexpected connection begins to grow between these two people who have fought their emotions all their lives and more begins to heal than just Lucas’s broken body. But just when they start to believe they could find some kind of happiness, the past rears its ugly head and Lucas will have to choose between the life he once led and the woman who has changed his world.

My Thoughts:

This latest addition to Jess Michaels series The 1797 Club is filled with suspense. There is of course the prerequisite building of love too, but this book is much more suspenseful than any of the others so far in this series.

Although Lucas is a Duke he has never acted much like one would expect a member of the peerage to act. He is much more intent on serving King and country as a member of the King’s War Department. He is very good at what he does, but when another member of the War Department turns traitor Lucas means to bring him to justice and is nearly killed attempting to do so.

Diana is the daughter of a physician who also works for the War Department and is presumed killed on the same night as Lucas’s near fatal injury.
When Lucas is not healing properly she is recruited to heal him.
The connection between them grows the more time they spend alone together.

Will the secrets that Lucas holds about himself ruin his chance at love and a Happily Ever After future with Diana?

Will Diana’s past be what changes everything?

I gave this well written book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 4 of 5 flames. The physical intimacy between this couple is combustible.
I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the author/publisher via NetGalley to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

Rowen the Restless is one of the bastard triplets of King Edward III. At birth, the king ordered them killed, fearing the superstitions of triplets being evil spawns of the devil who would only bring him bad luck. However, someone didn’t want the babies to die, and the boys’ lives were saved in secret.

Now, over two decades later, Rowen and his brothers, Rook and Reed, are out for vengeance on the man who sired them and wanted them dead. Finally finding out the truth of being the English king’s bastards on the night of Burnt Candlemas ten years earlier, the young boys’ lives changed drastically as they were split apart in the turmoil that devastated their homeland of Scotland. Being stolen and raised by pirates, Rowen now commands a ship and works with his brothers who live in the crypts and the hills, to steal from the king and bring the riches to the Scots instead. No one knows that the legendary Demon Thief who manages to always disappear before he is caught, and who can even change his hair color from blond to red to black, is not one man, but three brothers, each with a small army of their own.

Lady Cordelia of Whitehaven is a young widow who wants nothing more than to have children. She happens to end up in the wrong place at the wrong time and before she knows it, she’s been taken captive by a pirate who has stolen her dowry that she plans on using to convince the king to let her marry a new husband of her own choosing. The sea captain is handsome and exciting, and protects her from being ravaged by his crew. While he’s mysterious, Cordelia realizes he is very restless and has deep, dark secrets that disturb him. She hopes to uncover the secrets of the restless sea lord because she sees a noble man trapped inside, making him more of a prisoner than her.

Be sure to pick up the rest of the series – Destiny’s Kiss (Prequel), Ruthless Knight – Book 2, and Reckless Highlander – Book 3.

Publisher’s Description:

In Ancient Rome four young slave-gladiators—bred to be the best and nick-named the Wolf Pack—form a forbidden bond with the daughter of their owner. Across the length and breadth of the empire they will find and claim her as their own, letting nothing stand in their way.

Ennia is the name her patrician birth assigned her. Cassius is the name her father’s physician gave her when she dressed as a slave boy to train under him. But Accalia, the she-wolf, is the name she gave herself. And it is Accalia who falls in love with not one but four young men society deemed the lowest of the low.

Follow their adventures in the Gladiator series:

1: Typhon is a volatile and over-sensitive youth who struggles with his place in the world. Having been born to a tiny oriental slave, who was raped by a warrior and died in childbirth, he found himself fostered, not born, into his master’s elite breeding program. Considering himself undeserving of his placement among the carefully bred slaves meant for the arena, he fights every day to prove himself fit for a place in the barracks and the Wolf Pack.

When he attracts the lecherous attention of a murderous madman, Typhon must fight for his life and trust a mysterious young girl with thundercloud eyes and healing hands.

‘Typhon’ concerns itself with young love and is therefore sweetly PG rated. However, the series as a whole is meant for mature readers, as it becomes increasingly steamy and sexually explicit—although always wholly romantic—as it progresses.

Follow their adventures in the Gladiator series:

3: TALOS is not interested in the instant success and fame the Wolf Pack garners when they start their careers as gladiators in Rome. For the steady, pragmatic Talos all that matters is doing a good job for his pack and for Accalia.

When Nero’s fire breaks out in the poorer areas of Rome, Accalia races into danger to do what she can for the burn victims. Talos and his pack go after her. When he discovers she has rushed into a burning building after a child, the only thing Talos can do is follow her, though the chances of getting her out are impossibly slim.

Although choices are always limited for a man owned by another, this one choice is totally his own and easy to make. Talos would rather die trying to save his little she-wolf than live another day without her.
