His Lady Mistress by Elizabeth Rolls

His Lady Mistress by Elizabeth Rolls

Absolutely wonderful book that deserves a higher average rating. I've read it four or five times now and can never put it down and always find myself weeping. We have a heroine, Verity, who is given pretty much the most miserable background ever. Despite this and her young years she is spirited and brave and capable of immense love and generosity. Then we have the most glorious, heroic, dark and ...

Love's Charade by Jane Feather

Love’s Charade by Jane Feather

Hugely enjoyable historic romance with a rich plot, exciting adventure and a sexy age-gap marriage. Love's Charade by Jane Feather is a must-read for historic romance fans. As well as enjoying the love story, I learnt a lot about the French Revolution and enjoyed the detail of the setting. Seventeen-year-old Danielle de St Varennes is rescued from the streets by 36-year-old Justin, Earl of Linton. There's rather a lot of ...

Reckless Angel by Jane Feather

Reckless Angel by Jane Feather

A wonderful, well-researched historic romance with an age-gap frisson. Reckless Angel deserves a far better blurb than the vague, generically florid one here. It's a surprisingly interesting and moving book set in a very eventful historical era (English Civil War/Roundheads vs Cavaliers). Fifteen-year-old Henrietta "Harry" Drummond is rescued by 29- year-old widower Sir Daniel Drummond. He ends up marrying her partly to save her from her abusive father and being ...

Protecting Her by Georgette Gray

Protecting Her by Georgette Gray

Georgette Gray's latest student-teacher romance is a real page turner: there's not only the illicit intrigue between Violet and Mr Brennan to enjoy, but also a plot with heaps of twists and turns and danger. The build up to their forbidden romance is realistic and steady - he's holding back for obvious reasons - so when he finally gives way the results are pretty explosive. The emotional dimension is also ...

Her Teacher's Temptation by Alexandra Vos

Her Teacher’s Temptation by Alexandra Vos

I first read Her Teacher's Temptation on Wattpad (where it was titled "Light of the Morning") and loved it. It's a classic student- teacher romance with lots of sexual tension, supressed feelings and twists and turns. Set in the UK it's gritty and realistic in parts, with a lot of drama in Maddie's home life. This gives it a rich plot: there's a lot going on. But above all, the ...

He tries to resist for ages, but when he finally yields... hold on to the edge of your seat! The sex is wonderfully written even though even more would ...

Larkspur: A Necromancer's Romance by V M Jaskiernia

Larkspur: A Necromancer’s Romance by V M Jaskiernia

A strange and beautiful story of love and very dark magic. There is something dreamlike about it, as though the whole story could be a nightmare of death and life, sleep and wake. There were moments when Elizabeth and Pierre recalled Madeline and Porphyro in Keats' The Eve of St Agnes. There is a bitter chill in Larkspur, but it is also painted with jewel-like colours, secrecy and passion. The ...
