Description:

Betrayed by her fiancé and her best friend, Lady Diana Haversham’s reputation is left in ruins, and she is unjustly cast out by her family. Left with little choice, she agrees to pretend to be a courtesan to protect her benefactor’s secret. What she didn’t count on was meeting temptation in the form of one Lord Lucas Blackthorn.

Lucas is fascinated by the shameless Diana, whom his friends claim is his perfect counterpart. He can’t stop thinking about her sultry smile and captivating eyes, but what draws him most is the sharp mind she reveals—and the certainty she’s hiding something.

When Lucas learns the scandalous truth, Diana will have to make a life-and-death choice.

Each book in the Once Wicked series is STANDALONE:

 

To Love a Libertine (Once Wicked Book 1)

My Thoughts:

AWickedReputationUpdated_500x750-e1549166893168

I have read other books by this author but none drew me in like this one.
I was totally engaged from the first chapter. I wanted to see how this innocent young woman would handle her ruin especially since it was all based on lies from a man who decided he wanted her friend more than he wanted her.
Lucas of course wasn’t the first man to want her but he was the first to show enough gumption to carry matters through.
The only thing that was hard to believe was the fact that through most of the story Diana was still an innocent.

I gave this engaging tale 4.8 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization.
This sensual story is a winner.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Synopsis:

Even the Worthington least likely to wed may find her perfect match . . .

Marriage has worked out quite nicely for her older sisters, yet Lady Augusta Vivers is certain it would end her studies in languages and geography, and stop her from travelling.

Phineas has studied architecture all over the world, yet Augusta is his most intriguing discovery yet. How can he resist a woman who loves maps and far-off lands? But her longing for all things foreign hinders any hope of courtship. When he learns her cousins have offered a trip to Europe, he secretly arranges to join their party.

The last thing Phineas expected to find was the love of his life. He is much more interested in his travels than some giggly young lady making her come out.

Augusta wants only to go to university. She knows if she marries that wish will come to an abrupt end.
This is the tale of two very intelligent and equally unlikely people who discover along a very bumpy way that love and ones other wants can both be had at the same time.

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed yet another Ella Quinn, Worthington family story. I have read all of this series including six full length novels and two novellas.
Although not as comical as most of this series there is still some humor and the expected requisite animals involved in this the sixth book in this ever engaging series.
I gave Phineas and Augusta’s story 4.65 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization. I do recommend reading these books in order to get the whole scope of the family but all of these books can be read as a standalone. The only drawback is the interconnecting character stories.

Synopsis:

All’s fair in love and war. Now they just have to decide which this is…

Laird William Sinclair is a good man. Like all his brothers he helps those around him, takes care of the less fortunate. So why does Gemma McClaren think she can take advantage of his kind nature and just ride off? He’s good but he isn’t a saint. And he’s certainly not above teaching that tricky little imp a lesson she’ll never forget.

Gemma McClaren has learned the hard way that men are scum. She won’t ever fall prey to one again. Yet, even she feels a little guilty when she steals a handsome laird’s money and horse. He hadn’t actually done a thing to harm her…yet. Her guilt quickly evaporates when he tracks her down with two small children in tow and demands she repay him by becoming nanny to the children. If she doesn’t, he’ll report her to the authorities. 

What choice does she have? Except Gemma hasn’t the first clue how to care for children or handle a very large and angry laird. And honestly, she didn’t’ come to the Highlands to play with wee bairns no matter how cute. Nor does she want to notice how her heartbeat quickens every time Will steps into the room. She’s got a debt to settle and a life to reclaim

Synopsis:

A prince hiding his identity, and a woman hiding hers – and sparks will fly when they have only each other to rely on…

Prince Éduard of Aviroux is hunting down the Great Whisperer, the spy helping the French nobility escape the guillotine, and he’s so close when thwarted by the delectable Giselle. 

In all his years, he has never seen a woman like her: resourceful, cunning, and ready for a fight. What he doesn’t realise is that she’s just the spy he’s looking for. 

Now trapped on an island together with food running out fast, Giselle is attracting his notice for all the wrong reasons, and it surely won’t be long before secrets, as well as clothes, start to fly.

Will Éduard discover Giselle’s terrible secret – or will he reveal some of his own? And can a perilous time with a prince ever lead to something more than just the heady delights of the flesh?

This is the prequel of the Ravishing Regencies.

This is a steamy Regency romance with a happily ever after, no cliffhangers, and part of a series that can be read in any order.

The Ravishing Regencies series: 

Lost with a Lord

Drenched with a Duke

Shipwrecked with a Suitor

Marooned with a Marquis

Voyage with a Viscount (coming March 2019)

Beached with a Baronet (coming May 2019)

Catastrophe with a Count (coming July 2019)

Emigrating with an Earl (coming September 2019)


My Thoughts:

A prince hiding his identity, and a woman hiding hers – and sparks will fly when they have only each other to rely on…

Prince Éduard of Aviroux is hunting down the Great Whisperer, the spy helping the French nobility escape the guillotine, and he’s so close when thwarted by the delectable Giselle.
Will Éduard discover Giselle’s terrible secret – or will he reveal some of his own? And can a perilous time with a prince ever lead to something more than just the heady delights of the flesh?

I read this short regency in one sitting. The story has it’s moments of passion and secrets revealed.
Will revealing their secrets be the end for both of them or turn into an everlasting love and passion?

It is a somewhat steamy read so if you prefer your regencies to be sweet/clean titles this isn’t the book for you.

I gave this book 4.3 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization. This book is the prequel of the new Ravishing Regencies series although it was not the first book released.

I received a complimentary copy of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
