The Hellion takes you down a darker road.
The Hellion - Christi Caldwell

Not the pretty side of the Regency, but I always like a trip to the dark side. I enjoyed Cleopatra's determination to do for her family and her skills for climbing. It took a bit for me to warm up to Adair, but once I did, this story became a great journey. Both of these characters had such big obstacles to work beyond but found they have some in common. Despite the feud and danger all around, Cleopatra and Adair get a chance at a love match.

I received a copy of this story through Netgalley, and it is a Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team selection. This is my unsolicited review.

The Hellion
The Hellion - Christi Caldwell The Hellion is an age old tale of love, lust and danger encased in a long standing rivalry. The question is who holds the cards to this ongoing war. The neverending revelations lead to a powerful love affair that could destroy everything in it's path or heal a lifetime of damage that spans generations. Tempestuous, climatic, emotional romance.

We found out we are moving back to the US sometime mid-summer. So now we are just waiting for our orders (telling us where we are moving to) to start the out-processing/clearance process. I am re-adjusting my summer reading plans and delaying grad school. I am really happy to be going "home" but I will miss some parts of living in England. 

 

To deal with my anxiety and stress (you would think I had a better handle on military moves considering this is my fourth move, but nope), I have been stuffing my eReaders with as much content as possible. One reason is that when we get close to leaving, my eReaders and laptop will be my only entertainment for weeks, since we will be staying in hotel rooms or temporary lodgings once back in the states. Second, my print collection will be on a boat with my other household goods, and that can take up to two months for it to arrive at our new house. So I am very dependent on easily portable reading material and puzzle books.

The Hellion - Christi Caldwell

Hate is a powerful emotion. So can love, but to get to the later hate has to die first. Adair Thorne has hated those that came from the Diggory Gang since he was a boy tortured by that notorious gang leader and that includes the Kiloran siblings. Now the Blacks have to keep to the end of a bargain they reached with one Cleopatra Kiloran, which is to help one of her sisters snag a lofty lord for a husband. But when their gaming hell is burned down they believe the Kilorans are to blame and the little spitfire that comes to his friend's home to talk about the fire and bargain, sparks both his ire and his blood.

Cleopatra hates all things Black and she enjoys teasing Adair the most, but when she decides that it should be her sacrificed to the betterment of her family’s ambitions and finds herself living in the Black residence, she finds it next to impossible to avoid Adair. Their slow build to a friendship and then love was steady and entertaining to watch. Both characters were strong and well developed and both were very headstrong that the back and forth between the two kept the story going. The conflicts developed were both intense and hard to overcome, but when they are, the happy ever after is that much more wonderful to see. I enjoyed their story and want to go back and read about the other members of the Black gang because going into this first book in this spin-off series made it quite clear that it wasn’t the start for the characters and all of them are fascinating and interesting that I want more from them. I loved Adair and Cleopatra.

Review For: The Lady Who Loved Him by Christi Caldwell
The Lady Who Loved Him (The Brethren Book 2) - Christi Caldwell

The Lady Who Loved Him by Christi Caldwell is Book Two in The Brethren Series. This is the story of Lady Chloe Edgerton and Leopold Dunlop, The Marquess of Tennyson. I have read the previous book 'The Spy Who Seduced Her' (and Loved It!) but feel this can be a standalone book.
Leo was once a boy that loved to read but he was also one that was abused by his father. His Uncle who is the Duke of Aubrey picked him to be a part of The Brethren group. There, Leo learned to flush out traitors and help with uncovering crimes against the Crown. Leo adjusted to his new role by becoming a 'Cold Callous Ruthless Bastard' that fit the need The Brethren needed. But now the Brethren members feels he has taken it to far. One member named Rowley, has spoken to say that Leo has one last chance to stay apart of the team. Leo is instructed that if even a false rumor is said about him that he will loose his position with the group. Although his Uncle has taken up for Leo he even says that Leo has taken his persona to far. Leo, doesn't want to loose his place in the group because in his mind it saved him from his father.
Chloe was raised by a very abusive father who hurt her mother and siblings. They lived in terror although their father is now dead, the memories are still with Chloe. Chloe has no plans to ever marry, and has been good about side stepping her marriage minded mother and brother. So much so that Chloe is now 25 years old and only wanting independence.
But when a compromising position between Chloe and Leo happens... it leads them into a marriage of convenience. Both thinking to go forward as they had planned with their lives before marriage start finding it hard to do so. Their feelings are starting to grow between the two.
I absolutely loved this book! I highly recommend Mr. Caldwell's writing...her books make you feel what the characters are going through. It books you cannot put down until you know their ending.
