both need saving
Secret Lessons with the Rake (Hadley's Hellions) - Julia Justiss

Christopher Lattimar needs a marriage, he wants to get a proper marriage and overcome some of the gossip in his family. He's a politician and he has been a rake but now he has to settle down.  He turns to Ellie Parmenter, a former courtesan, she knows how to advise him but he has to try to resist her charms, she doesn't want to be a courtesan again.  

 

There is a bit of justification of his attraction for her, she's from a "good" family, who fell on hard time but her family's treatment of her is appalling.  It's not a bad read and I was rooting for the pair.

A second chance with a little help.
A Texas Christmas Past (Whiskey River Christmas Book 1) - Julia Justiss

This story is about second chances at love with a little help from the spirit world. My heart hurt for both Audra and Drew as they dealt with their PTSD in their own ways, in a time when the idea of PTSD was unheard of. Audra had the strength to recognize her weakness and worked toward a future of healing herself and others. Drew felt a need to keep it to himself, and I felt sorry for him as he struggled with loneliness, anger, and shame. When they decide that the other is more important, I had tears in my eyes. The story moved me and entertained me. I look forward to reading the other Whiskey River Christmas stories.

This is my unsolicited review.

Characters and story that pull you in
Secret Lessons with the Rake (Hadley's Hellions) - Julia Justiss

I did not want to put this story down. Ellie and Christopher took a chance on their friendship to help each other out despite their different circumstances. It was a fast paced read that kept my attention, and I enjoyed meeting the other characters from the previous Hadley's Hellions. 

I received a copy of this story as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

Review: Convenient Proposal to the Lady (Hadley's Hellions #3) by Julia Justiss
Convenient Proposal to the Lady - Julia Justiss

I’m in love with this series, not only because the so-called Hellions are more like gentlemen in disguise but because the author knows how to weave a solid and interesting plot with a good dose of romantic emotions.

The “Hellions” are labeled so because of some shenanigans of the past, but their life is different now and as politicians they are trying hard to better themselves and the society they live in. Ben for instance set out to warn Lady Alyssa as soon as he learned of the despicable plot that others planned to ruin her. He was an illegitimate son thus he knew what was like to be shunned in life and did not want that for her or anyone else.

I liked very much that Alyssa and Ben’s relationship was more than anything based on honesty and openness. That helped them learn each other’s fears, wants, dislikes, and dreams. So once it was time to move into the romantic spectrum of the relationship they both knew what they were walking into.

They both had demons to overcome, and in a way Alyssa’s approach to conquer them put me off. I also think it put a hinder in the romantic side of the story because it sounded as if she saw Ben as a savior rather than a lover. I suppose there was nothing wrong with that but I thought he deserved better. In the end I think they found common ground and they set out to find their own HEA, which is of course the point of it all.

*** I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.***
