Danger, secrets, and guilt kept me listening to this one.
The Mysterious Miss Flint - Adele Clee

This was a fun listen, and Liisa Ivary did a wonderful job of keeping me interested with her emotions as she narrated. Nicole has been through a lot but still has the ability to trust the right person. Oliver is full of guilt and does not want closeness with anyone. I enjoyed both characters and their journeys to finding themselves and true love. I recommend this story (book or audio) and look forward to the next in the series.

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

Historical Romance
A Simple Case of Seduction - Adele Clee

A Simple Case Of Seduction by Adele Clee is a fantastic historical romance.  Ms. Clee has given us a book that is well-written and loaded with fantastic, lovable characters.  Daniel and Daphne's story is full of action, suspense, sizzle and humor.  Their story kept me glued to my e-reader from cover to cover.  I enjoyed reading A Simple Case Of Seduction and look forward to my next book by Adele Clee.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

A Simple Case of Seduction by Adele Clee
A Simple Case of Seduction - Adele Clee

Three years ago, Daniel Thorpe offered marriage to his friend's widow, only to be summarily rejected. His heart broken, he still kept an eye on her throughout the years, keeping her safe. But it looks like he hasn't done a good enough job, since a ghost from the past is haunting her, never to be seen and never taking anything. It looks like the ghost is looking for something, but Daphne has no idea what or why. Looks like this might be a job for her guardian angel.


In my review of the previous book in this quasi-series, I mentioned how Mr Daniel Thorpe and Mrs Daphne Chambers had more chemistry and more spark in their one little scene together than the two leads of the book in the entire story. Well, that chemistry was utterly absent in their own book.
I have no idea what drew him to her and vice versa, I didn't feel any sparks nor attraction...They appeared merely props, characters written for the sake of the story, pushed together because they happened to be main characters. Period.

She was a tad too naive for a woman of her age, especially a woman in her profession, her gullibility, her bubbly-ness, and her idiotic blindness to her own ineptitude (she's survived so far mostly because he was there to get her out of trouble, which she learned toward the end) got annoying really fast, and I actually wanted something bad to happen to her to make her see reason.
But she had her guardian angel to get hurt instead of her, the gruff, abrupt thundercloud by the name of Daniel Thorpe. The chip on his shoulder was rather disproportionate to what actually happened to him, and he definitely held the grudge for too long (or maybe we weren't given all the facts), and no matter how attractive, protective, and charming (when he wanted to be) both the author and the heroine made him appear, I wasn't convinced.
I was utterly indifferent about both of them, not caring one way or the other about what did, might, and would happen to them.

The suspense also left me quite cold. It was uninspiring, dull, slow-paced, and, let's face it, quite forced with the whole treason sub-plot. It just didn't click, feeling disconnected from the rest of the story, making it seem like I was writing two different books (neither of them particularly good).

A real disappointment given the great introduction to these two characters in the previous book and all the possibilities of suspense elements given their specific line of work.

Great historical romance!!
A Curse of the Heart - Adele Clee

A Curse of the Heart by Adele Clee is a well-written book.  Ms Clee has delivered a book with fantastic characters that will keep you entertained from cover to cover.  There is plenty of suspense, bits of humor and a little spice to help glue you to Rebecca and Gabriel's story.  I loved reading A Curse of the Heart and look forward to reading more from Adele Clee in the future.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I received a copy of this book from InstaFreebie.

Fantastic Historical Romance
To Save a Sinner - Adele Clee

To Save A Sinner by Adele Clee is the second book I've read from this author, and I enjoyed both of them.  To Save A Sinner is a well written book.  The characters are exceptional.  Lucas and Helena's story is loaded with drama, suspense, humor and spice.  Ms Clee has delivered a book that will grab readers' attention and hold it from cover to cover.  To Save A Sinner is a great read and I look forward to reading more from Adele Clee in the future.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
