Secrets of a Scandalous Heiress
Secrets of a Scandalous Heiress - Theresa Romain

Augusta was someone who stood out to me in the previous book, so I was excited to read her story. I thought this had a slow start, but once it got going, I got into it. I really liked that Joss and Augusta were non-titled and on the outside of society. I liked that Joss finally accepted his Indian heritage at the end.
I thought Joss was the perfect hero. Kind, empathetic, ambitious. He was absolutely an awesome Beta hero. While I liked that Joss professed his feelings first, I wish Augusta had been more empathetic to him. While I did like her, I thought she was selfish. 
A good end to the trilogy. (But no Matchmaker in this one).

 

For Ripped Bodice Bingo- I'm using this for the "Hero smells like MAN" square. Augusta repeatedly mentions Joss's sandalwood fragrance.

Lady Rogue (The Royal Rewards #3) by Theresa Romain
Lady Rogue - Theresa Romain

 

Isabel was not looking for scandal. It just found her twice. Callum did not plan to end risking his reputation and heart. It just happened. Can this tantalizing duo, give love a chance as they race to right a wrong? Lady Rogue is an intricate tale of love, lust and intrigue. What began as an affair quickly spirals into something beyond their control. Love.

To Charm a Naughty Countess
To Charm a Naughty Countess - Theresa Romain
I thought Caro and Michael fit each other perfectly. Sometimes slow-burn romances are nice and this one was. But, the journey to get there was slow at times. Both have issues. Said issues could have been dealt with much easier and faster had they just talked. Instead, assumptions were made. And you know how that goes.
One thing I really enjoyed: a beta, virgin hero! Michael also has an anxiety disorder that complicates things for him. Caro was experienced and that was also refreshing. The author's note at the end explaining the historical significance of 1816 (being one of the coldest summers/years recorded) was also interesting.
3.5*- not quite a 3, not quite a 4. For GR purposes I am rounding up. 
Looking forward to the last book in this trilogy; the heroine Miss Augusta Meredith made an appearance in this one and she's interesting.

It Takes Two to Tangle
It Takes Two to Tangle - Theresa Romain
Henry is recently returned from war. Having suffered an injury, he is learning a "new normal." His has a devoted brother (Jem) and sister-in-law (Emily). Emily is friends with Caroline. Caroline happens to be the most popular in social circles, so Henry decides that he must court her to win Society back over. Frances, is Caroline's cousin and companion. 
Frances "gets" Henry and what he is going through. She also has lingering guilt over something she did when she was first married (I personally didn't think it was a big deal considering a woman's place in society). My issue with Frances is she let Henry think someone else was writing him letters for way too long. She had many, many chances to come clean- and didn't. 
Both characters are likable and "fit" together well. I really liked Caroline and look forward to her book.
