Ex Libris Romance: Regency Romance!

duchessThe Last Duchess
Author: Stephanie Feagan
Heat: Hot
Publisher: Self
Available Now
Michael, Duke of Blixford, was all Lady Jane Lennox ever wanted in a husband. Growing up with her gregarious widower papa and six raucous older brothers, Jane was drawn to the handsome, taciturn duke and purposefully set her cap for him. Unfortunately, despite his attraction to her, the duke was less than impressed with her unladylike skills, and after he ruined her, then proposed at the same time he called her his very last choice as his duchess, she fled to Scotland. To keep the ducal title and holdings from reverting to the crown, Michael needs a wife to give him an heir – but he doesn’t need to love her. Called the Duke of Death, a pariah said to have demon seed, Michael has lost three wives in childbed. His worst nightmare is following his father into grief driven madness after the woman he loved died. His iron discipline failed him four years ago when he succumbed to his fascination with Jane, and his fury was great when she jilted him. Now, she’s returned to London and, just as he is her only choice, she is his last chance. She’s determined to have a real marriage; he’s determined to hold her at arm’s length. But when the past catches up and old ghosts demand their due, Jane is devastated, and Michael risks everything to save his last duchess from permanent ruin. All he has to do is not fall in love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Last Duchess is a Regency era offering from Stephanie Faegan, who also writes YA under the name Trinity Faegan.  The Last Duchess was very steamy and very fun.  The dialogue was quick and funny and I even found myself chuckling out loud more than once.  There were a lot of plot twists in this particular story and the whole thing was paced very well, I thought.  While the story focuses on Blix and Jane, you also have a very compelling side story involving Blix’s sister, which I really enjoyed.  I sincerely hope that we see more Regency romances from Stephanie!

 

howHow To Lose A Bride In One Night
Author: Sophie Jordan
Heat: Medium
Publisher: Avon
Available Now
When Annalise Hadley is tossed over the side of her honeymoon barge, the newly-minted duchess knows she’s been left for dead — for her husband’s only interest is in her vast dowry, not her muddied lineage. However, she didn’t count on a savior. Especially not an honorable, sinfully intriguing earl who will tempt her to risk everything—again. Now he will seduce her heart and soul. A man with his own demons, Owen Crawford, the reclusive Earl of McDowell, is enchanted by the mysterious, courageous woman he rescued. He will help her heal, teach her to protect herself, and then send her away—so that she’ll never see he’s far from the hero she believes him to be. But days and nights alone prove that some secrets are meant to be discovered…some desires are too powerful to resist…and some wounds can only be healed by love.  – Received in exchange for my honest review.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am a huge fan of Sophie’s regency romances.  Her heroine’s are smart and the heroes are swoony.  This is the last n the Forgotten Princesses series and it was a sexy and fun read.  I really loved the way Annalise grew into a more assertive woman in the course of the story.  That’s a bit different from the other stories in this series, where the heroines seem to be spitting fire from the get-go.  I really liked this approach, though, because I felt like I got to know Annalise and Owen much better.  I think that Sophie’s fans will be very pleased with this final installment in a romance series that I have really enjoyed.

 

nineNine Rules To Break When Romancing A Rake
Author: Sara MacLean
Heat: Medium
Publisher: Avon
Available Now
Lady Calpurnia Hartwell has always followed the rules, rules that have left her unmarried—and more than a little unsatisfied. And so she’s vowed to break the rules and live the life of pleasure she’s been missing. But to dance every dance, to steal a midnight kiss—to do those things, Callie will need a willing partner. Someone who knows everything about rule-breaking. Someone like Gabriel St. John, the Marquess of Ralston—charming and devastatingly handsome, his wicked reputation matched only by his sinful smile. If she’s not careful, she’ll break the most important rule of all—the one that says that pleasure-seekers should never fall hopelessly, desperately in love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have heard so many people extoll the virtues of Sarah MacLean’s regency romances and now that I’ve finally read a few I understand why.  Nobody does smart and funny heroines like Sarah!  The sexiness is perfectly paired with smart and witty dialogue that makes it fun to read on every level. Nine Rules is the beginning of the very fun Love By Numbers series.  Truly, I recommend anything she writes!
