Review: The Duke Who Ravished Me (Rebellious Brides #4) by Diana Quincy
The Duke Who Ravished Me - Diana Quincy

This was an wonderful, well-written, heart-melting story from start to finish. With one of the best introductory scenes I might have ever read, this is one book I definitely recommend to anyone that loves fresh stories, unique twists, the right amount of drama, and characters full of emotions and wit. 

So, that scene; we are introduced to the Duke of Sunderford, or Sinful Sunny, in the most decadent and naughty way, giving us glimpse of what was yet to come * yum *
I love dukes. I don’t care how many fictitious dukes there are, I’ve read lots of them and I’ll probably continue reading them for the rest of my life. However, Sunny is by far the most deliciously wicked, cynical, charming duke I have ever read. He was the epitome of the perfect all-rounded scoundrel there could possibly exist, and yet in spite of all the flaws the haughty man might have had, he never lied! 

The plot itself was so much fun to read. One of the reasons my favorite trope is enemies to lovers is because of the verbal sparring, and this story satisfied my needs for it Every.Single.Time. The chemistry between Sunny and Isabel, the governess, simmered slowly until it burned a raging blaze at a perfect pace. Their love was believable and honest, just as the emotional attachment Sunny developed for his wards. Throughout the book we learn of Sunny and Isabel’s painful past, yet the story doesn’t dwell on it and instead it moves forward because of it. In truth, I think my only cavil is that as we neared the end I felt the scenes were being rushed. I’m not talking about the ending itself but the scenes that preluded the climax. Even so, the story delivered in every other way so I'm willing to overlook whatever faults I thought there were. 

** I received this book 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.**

Review For: The Governess Who Captured His Heart Sophie Barnes
The Governess Who Captured His Heart (The Honorable Scoundrels Book 1) - Sophie Barnes

The Governess Who Captured His Heart by Sophie Barnes is the first book in the new series called "The Honorable Scoundrels" This is the story of Louise Potter and Alistair Langley. This is a Novella with almost 90 pages.
Louise is the middle sister with Josephine the oldest and Eve the youngest. Although the sisters are descends of an Earl their father wasn't and he had tried his hand at law. Which after the death of his wife nothing seem to work for him and along with his drinking. After he past the sisters were left with just a townhouse and bills. So Louise thought to take a position as a Governess. Louise would have to travel to the location of the job but was assured that she could take the trip with the older Uncle. But that turned out to be Alistair who was anything but old.
This was a sweet, quick and really enjoyable story! I can't wait for more in this series.

pretence and anger
The Governess Heiress (A Year of Scandal) - Elizabeth Beacon

I think this would have been just as good a story without the secondary mystery (your mileage may vary)


Miss Eleanor Hancourt was living as Nell Court as a governess, escaping family scandal and predatory fortune hunters, taking the best care she can of her employer's wards when she bumps into a man she assumes is the new estate manager, he's actually the Earl of Barberry, her employer, but he goes with the fiction to find out more about his estate.  Along the way they fall for each other but both have issues with the other finding out who they are, can the love survive the truth.


And then there's the treasure subplot that just didn't really add to the story.  The ending of it was all wrapped up way to easily as well and I felt like there were parts missing when the villains were confronted, it felt quite rushed.  Not a bad read, has potential.

Reading progress update: I've read 84 out of 362 pages.
The Governess's Secret Baby (the Governess Tales, Book 4) - Janice Preston

This is proving to be a trudge, it gets one more try before I abandon it.

Station does not stop love
The Mysterious Governess - Beverley Oakley

Some people get their just desserts and others get the very best. The main couple is Lissa and Ralph with a couple pairings around them. Lissa is a governess to earn her way in this life because she is illegitimate. Ralph is above her station but they feel a pull that draws them together. Their struggles to be with each other kept me reading this story.

I received a copy of this through Candid Book Reviews, and this is my unsolicited review.
