|‘The Decidedly Devilish Duke’
By Allyson James
Amelia Lockwood and Michael Beaulieu, the Duke of
Bretherton, have a past together and when the Duke sees
Amelia at a party, all bets are off. He will do what it
takes to win her back.
The Decidedly Devilish Duke is just that,
devilish. Michael made a mistake with Amelia and it was
wonderful to read how he makes it up to her. Amelia is
strong and shows Michael she is the woman for him. Allyson
James made wicked fun.
‘A Night at the Theater’
By Claudia Dain
Zoe Auvray and Sophia Grey have a plan and it involves
the Earl of Dalby and The Duke of Aldreth. Could a night at
the theater last a lifetime?
A Night at the Theater is stage show
waiting to happen. Zoe is innocent in her own way and her
actions with the Duke of Aldreth become more than just a
night of debauchery. Sophia is more sophisticated in the
ways of life and helps Zoe in her chosen path. I enjoyed
two stories in one and Claudia Dain did a great job making
them come alive.
By Shiloh Walker
Jack Callahan has a secret that he needs to keep while
protecting his friend’s sister. Mercy Greene has a few
secrets of her own and is traumatized by her husband’s
death. Can the past be laid to rest to make a future?
Hunter’s Mercy is a fabulous journey
between old friends that become much more. Shiloh Walker
brought Jack and Mercy together during a hard time in both
their lives. Mercy’s secret keeps her from moving on and
Jack is there to help her. I loved Jack and how protective
he was of Mercy. I also loved how Mercy was so strong, yet
fragile. Ms. Walker did a great job in this wonderful
shifter story. I think this is the first shifter historical
I’ve read and I really enjoyed it!
‘The Men and Women’s Club’
By Robin Schone
Ardelle Dennison and Joseph Manning have secrets, who
will tell theirs first? Ardelle and Joseph come together on
the eve of a trial that could ruin both their lives. Will
they be able to overcome the obstacles they face?
The Men and Women’s Club is sexy adventure
in a time where open talk of sex was taboo. Robin Schone is
AWESOME. This is the first time I’ve read Ms. Schone and
I’ll be sure to pick up more of her stories. Ardelle and
Joseph weave words as I tried to keep up with what was
happening. I loved the pace of The Men and Women’s
Club as it kept me on my toes.
“Private Places” is an erotic ride through
history. It has a little something for everyone. I was
really surprised with Shiloh Walker’s shifter story. I have
never read a paranormal historical story and I was glad Ms.
Walker was my first. Allyson James. Claudia Dain and Robin
Schone do not disappoint either. These women can write
history for me any day. It has been a long time since I’ve
read a good historical and this anthology wasn’t good, it
