Love, love, love it!!
The Seduction of Viscount Vice (Fallen) ... The Seduction of Viscount Vice (Fallen) - Nicola Davidson

The Seduction Of Viscount Vice by Nicola Davidson is a fabulous read.   This is a well-written, short historical romance, a great choice for those with limited time for reading.  Ms Davidson has once again had me glued to my kindle.  Vice and Mairi's story is loaded with humor, drama and sizzle.  The characters in this book are perfect for this story and simply amazing.  I don't usually give a book of this length a five star rating but I loved this one so much I must.  I enjoyed The Seduction Of Viscount Vice and look forward to reading more from Nicola Davidson in the future.  The Seduction Of Viscount Vice is book 3 of the Fallen Series but can easily be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.

Review: Rake to Riches (The London Lords #2) by Nicola Davidson
Rake to Riches (The London Lords Book 2) - Nicola Davidson
Rake to riches is the second in the series but can be totally be read as a standalone.
Set in regency England, Louisa’s heart is more into the perils of science and experimentation (all kinds of it) than in fulfilling her parents’ wish of marrying a man of title if not money. Unfortunately the only man that could have at one time changed her mind about marriage holds no title and little can be said about his financial situation. Apparently something happened in the past that drew an edge between the two and made them become some sort of enemies after they had been good friends since childhood. Now Louisa wants nothing to do with the man but fate puts him again in her life and neither one of them have a choice but to learn to trust one another as they once did.

I adored the voice of this author, it just held my interest from page one. The dialogue was funny and engaging. The way she gave life to the characters was different from what I have read in the past. Each character was unique in their own way and not one of them tried to hide that uniqueness. For instance, George could have very well been the typical rake that sought pleasure because other things were denied from him but instead he simply rolled with the punches. Yes, he resented many things but he looked for solutions and not culprits. Another favorite of mine here was that Louisa was more concerned with being catalogued as a renowned scientist than a refined lady of the ton. She had her silly moments but she was at least trying to better herself. The romance was sweet yet passionate. The way George managed to keep Louisa to task with science was both endearing and entertaining. To me that said how much he knew her and that he truly care about her.
The rake to riches arc was interesting as well. If anything I would have loved to see what would have happened if George’s social circumstances had not changed at all or perhaps not so drastically. Either way the story ended in a satisfactory way and of course I will continue reading the series and anything else written by this author.

*** 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.***

The Devil's Submission by Nicola Davidson
The Devil's Submission - Nicola Davidson

After the first book in the series, this one was quite a disappointment for me. I simply hate miscommunication stories, because they're a cheap way of creating conflict, and everything can be resolved by a mere conversation.

In this one, six months of estrangement, and two people feeling inferior and inadequate could be solved by the same two people actually talking to each other...And when they finally did, it was almost too late, and still not enough, since the heroine had to go to a third party to actually find out how to please her husband. An idiotic husband that feared revulsion and ostracism because of his sexual preferences and practices...Hello? Aren't you the owner of one third of the most scandalous and talked-about sex club in London? In the regency period? And you're afraid, people will shun you because you want your wife to hurt you during bed play?

And the entire story stood on this wobbly and weak premise. Is it any wonder I was disappointed?

Fabulous Historical Romance!!
Rake to Riches (The London Lords Book 2) - Nicola Davidson

Rake To Riches by Nicola Davidson is an absolutely spellbinding read.  I'm giving this book 5 stars, only because I can't give it 6.  Ms Davidson has delivered an awesome story loaded with fantastic, lovable characters.  Louisa and George's story is a fast paced tale full of drama, action, lots of suspense and sizzle.  This story grabbed me at page one and held me hostage till the end.  I loved Rake To Riches and can't wait to read more from Nicola Davidson in the future.  Rake To Riches is book 2 of The London Lords Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Surrender to Sin by Nicola Davidson
Surrender to Sin - Nicola Davidson

Lady Grace Carrington is in quite a pickle. Her mourning for her late husband is almost over, but instead of enjoying widowhood, she’s about to be sold off in marriage to the highest bidder by her father. She has no intention of marrying Lord Baxter, an even more priggish and prudish man than her first husband, and her maid has the perfect plan. And it involves asking a favor of Sin a.k.a. Lord Sebastian St. John, owner of a third of London’s most notorious pleasure club, Fallen.

The favor—ruination.


I loved the premise...A woman prepared to do anything, and I mean anything, to get out of a forced engagement, a man with a heart of gooey marshmallow willing and able to help everyone in need, an “innocent” bargain that quickly develops into something more...

Unfortunately, although I loved the story, some of the narrative decisions boggled my mind. For one, how a lady of gentle birth that’s almost a virgin despite being married for four years goes from the basic knowledge of pain and quick groping in the dark with no orgasm to a dildo in the ass in the space of two chapters. Rushing much? I’m glad more chapters passed between the dildo episode and the exhibitive threesome. Notice the sarcasm.

Yes, I loved the story, but in this instance it could’ve benefited from a more substantial length. The way it was, the whole initiation of Grace into the world of passion and erotica seemed rushed, and quite unrealistic.
That is not to say that the story came across as PWP. Quite the opposite, one could say Grace’s whole erotic journey from shy “virgin” to a woman confident in her own sexuality was a parallel to the romance. It started off as (a strange kind of) friendship, and then grew and deepened through like, attraction, and admiration and blossomed into love just like Grace blossomed in her confidence and knowledge of self-worth and what she wanted.

Still, a lovely, well-written story with good pacing, and wonderful characters.
