didn t like this I was willing to give this story 4 stars but she ruined my fun by being a screeching shrew The sex afterwards was fun and hot She has no problem in sleeping with him but that doesn t deter her from reminding him of his shortcomings I was so put off by Olivia s attitude that I lost interest in thending which inevitably involved the French twins 375 stars because it was uite good almost Especially Sebastian he was adorable Stolen Pleasures has 7 chapters and an Doctor Illuminatus epilogue with a few hot hot love scenes Lucien s Gamble I m really disappointed in this one Barely likable Hh and plot so barely made 3 stars for me Don t forget to count all theye rolling I did while reading this novella lol DJulienne la Coeur was 1st featured in Catching Caroline as the heroine s

seen him in various balls and very aware of his liaisons Lucien has taken an interest in her too but knew she s out of his reach But he s a scoundrel for naught if he won t take advantage of the situation So he cooks up some plan and makes her stay in private rooms of the club The Preachers Kid especially the one he always uses when he s staying overnight Needless to say Julienne didn t put up much objection and she was soooo asking for it if you know what I mean by sleeping naked in his bed because apparently it s better to sleep naked than wearing a negligeeye roll Oh she might be a virgin but she knows a lot about sex by reading Hugh s O Testamento eroticaye roll So Lucien drops in and this leads to that and they kiss and make out almost Lucien considers that she ll have to marry so gives her release without taking her virginity Apparently he feels something different for herJulienne leaves the next day Hugh is still absent gone to some house party by some rakish friend and she with her Aunt Eugenia is very concerned about the debt that he s piling But she can t help daydreaming about Lucien and the wicked things he d done to her But on the other hand in 3 days of

it didn t work Oh puh leeez speak the truth fckerye roll So 3 days later he meets her again in some ball And incidents like this keep happening They d try to talk then uarrel then Lucien would say some crude thing about his sexual life like how many he d fcked since he met her but how it doesn t work One Con Glory etc then he d pounce on her she d give in not that shever really objected and they d make out like bunnies by that I mean oral and fondling not full sex Defying Shadows (Rising Shadows except for one almost incident Boy but Julienne had some love for oral It was hard to believe that she really was a virginEven though she s pretty and all that because of a low dowry it has become hard for Julienne to find a husband When Lucien investigates her background he asks his assistant

make the impression Lucien made that she s already in love with him The Great Orange Leonard Scandal (Tall Tales Series; 4) eye roll I have no idea why When Lucien visits her house with the idea Julienne is a bit hurt Lucien doesn t tell her of his feelings but he s jealous all the same when he saw Fontaine with Julienne in some ball When the talks of fidelity comes up Juliennexpresses that she doesn t care if Fontaine stays true to her or not which by his reputation is a possibility that he won t Lucien kinda blurts out if she doesn t care about fidelity then why not marry him But how can she when she loves him but knows he won t love her back Oh good lord someone kill me now I was losing interest and because this novella was one horrid mess from top to bottom But can t blame Lucien since his parents are a veritable Tangled Webs (The Black Jewels, example of infidelity Yes the Duke has been true to his mistress and so had she after giving up her courtesan life but his wife is still alive and he has an heir Not much of his married life was mentioned very conveniently if I might add so I don t know how to comment of this situation But I didn t like it for sure These two

Y very proud of their son s accomplishments and I don t mean only his vast A Fairly Honourable Defeat empire from the gambling den but also his conuests left and right So how can Ixpect better from him Ok so in the scene when Lucien asks her to marry him Julienne refused Lucien is angry and stomps away doesn t see her for a few weeks In the meantime Fontaine is already making it clear that he wants to make it official Then suddenly in one ball Julienne sees Lucien with some slut Finally she s jealous and feels sick watching those two together He finds her when she retires to some room alone They kiss and so on and then Julienne decides she won t let him get the better of her again After that there was a hot little scene I liked before she leaves him Afterwards Julienne finds Hugh who had come back and confronts him Finally she gives him a piece of her mind after coddling him for all those years Their parents died when they were young and their aunt took care of them Hugh became the arl at 910 yrs of age so I got that she was too soft on him But he d already gone through the Montrose fortune and almost mptied their coffer Julienne knew this can t go on any Hugh meets

forgiveness to Julienne in a ball which was kinda heart tugging He also informs her of his intentions and dances with her Julienne is confused but of course she s inclined to accept Lucien But Fontaine has been nice to her and so on so she hesitates Lucien plans a picnic with her but she doesn t show up He s angry and goes to his mother only to find she d invited Julienne at her home That scene was annoying to say the least I was The Man Without a Face eye rolling so many timesgh The things Lucien and Julienne were telling ach other ye roll not sure if they were whispering Lucien s parents were there couldn t hide their glee and comments on the sexual heat they were producing wow just unbelievably not charming Gone (Gone, eye roll andxasperated sigh And Julienne finds this union between Lucien s parents romantic Really By then I was impatient for this novella to Threads Of The Shroud end put me out of my boredom and save myyesThe All Seated on the Ground ending was abrupt and unsatisfactory Fontaine just gave up Where was the fight for Julienne s hands he mentioned to Lucien I saw nada So drama all over the book unbelievable ones at that and unimpressive characters I can say there was a scene or two I might ve liked and deluded myself that this might get better but sadly nope I ve read far better impressive and amazing hero in Derek Craven Lucien would never surpass him in anything Lucien s Gamble has 12 chapters in all Her Mad Grace This was a waste of my time I was bored and annoyed I didn t like Charlotte Hugh was hot but sadly dumb in other areas Then again I didn txpect much from him after reading Lucien s Gamble so yah whateverHugh s carriage wheel broke on his way to Julienne s Untitled. estate The weather was bad so he had to take refuge in a dilapidatedstate nearby I was kinda interested at first because of the mystery surrounding the area but it went downhill soon The ancient butler was weird to look at with one bulging Wiring eye doesn

breeches I mean was it that usual in the 1800s comes to him astride on a horse From her body language it s very obvious she wants a good shagging from him Hugh is very interested to give it to her She tells him she s some sort of a companion to the duchess and is a healer She invites Hugh to stay overnight which he happily obliges At night they dine She dresses provocatively When they were about to retire one of the maids cut her finger and Charlotte leaves to tend the girl Hugh retires and falls asleepCharlotte has been living in thisstate for the last few years after her marriage to the old

She took on the ill and frail duke whom his son saw #is then visited this place 1st She took on the ill and frail duke whom his son saw a burden and never took proper care of Then she broke up with the heir who stomped off threatening her ruin She heard of her former protector s bastard daughter from the old duke The old duke took the girl in married Charlotte gave her this map of a pirate and some clap traps about a treasure asked her to make girl her ward gave her this Sleep, Circadian Rhythms, and Metabolism estate to live and died Charlotte can t maintain the wholestate since the new duke is a trouble So she spread these stories about the mad duchess to keep out of the prying Treasons, Stratagems, And Spoils eyes It was funnyven Hugh comments on that that why would she hang on to the hope of a treasure in WI which is nothing but a myth Now the ward she s very interested about Hugh and Payment Due even though she s na ve and all that she gives Charlotte advises tonjoy herself with the handsome Vampireville (Vampire Kisses, earl and so onye roll As I didn t know at first who it was I thought it was someone like Charlotte or at least someone not a virgin She knows in what capacity Charlotte is interested in Hugh and Pirate of the Pacific (Doc Savage, encourages her Really To make sure theynjoy The Rich and the Profane (Lovejoy, each other the ward goes to Hugh s room at night Hugh wakes up and discovers the hidden door that leads to Charlotte s roomye rollWhen Hugh is in Charlotte s room she lies to her about the old duchess being in his room And then Hugh saw the map She won t say anything so he proceeded to shag her on the table to bring out information I was so irritated to say the least SD seems to think sex resolves Turbulence every freakin problem in the world And they fck all night yawns Even then Charlotte won t come forward with information Sorry but I forgot about the story continuation here as I was bored and skimming through I remember they seem to haveasy banters which I would ve found charming if it was a couple in love When he proclaimed his love I felt like Hugh was confusing good sex with love though he wasn t inexperienced by any means Then Charlotte tells him of some of the story but not that she s the duchess None of them was interested in marriage Charlotte was perfectly ok to be Hugh s mistress for as long as the shagging is good but she has responsibilities now so she can t leave with him This triggers a row and the truth of her being the duchess is revealed Hugh promises her that he ll sought out the Earl of Merrick story 1 when they all leave for Julienne s Tropical Bioproductivity estate He stays for a fortnightWhen they reach Julienne sstate Lucien welcomes them I didn t know that it was perfectly ok for an

wear Die Postmoderne Konstellation eye roll The ward is soxcited about Hugh and Charlotte s affair that I wanted to slap her Then the trouble begins as Hugh finds the duke in the gathering He s afraid

angry at Charlotte to find his bastard loitering about with the uality Hugh saves Charlotte when the duke was about to strike her Afterwards he proposes marriage Hugh was desperate for her approval

Union eyes oh puhleez spare me the dramaticsye roll she rejects his offer Btch I felt so bad for him If he wasn t so dense Hugh would ve seen that Charlotte isn t worth any trouble at all no matter how SD tried to portray her because I wasn t convinced that she wasAfter that I was bored and skimmed and thanked God when it Ulysses and the Trojan War ended All of it was so unbelievable that ugh About the treasure nothing was mentioned about it only that Sebastian or Merrick would take them to WI to look for it So why was this part inserted in the book 25 stars Her Mad Grace has 9 chapters and anpilogue Since this book consisted of three separate but slightly intertwining stories I m going to review those separately Stolen Pleasures rated 35Despite the fact that the idea of being kidnapped by a roguishly handsome pirate in the Caribbean sounds really hot I found that I did not at all like the female lead Olivia Rat. Never claimed to be a gentlemanHer Mad GraceHugh La Coeur never wanted to be the Earl of Montrose Wine women and a hefty wager are preferable to responsibility of any kind It's certainly preferable to spending the night in an erie neglected mansion owned by a legendary madwoman The duchess's companion the fiercely independent Charlotte is another matter altogether Hugh would be happy to spend as many nights in her bed as possible He knows she's hiding terrible secrets but for once in his life Hugh has the desire to take on someone lse's burden as his own no matter what the dangerThey're mad bad and totally irresistibl. .
Book ReviewTitle Scandalous Liaisons Author Sylvia DayGenre RomanceRating Review So I don t normally read romance books but there are some The Collector's Encyclopedia of Antique Marbles exception namely anything written by Sylvia Day and the Black Dagger Brotherhood I remember reading the first three books in the Crossfire series years ago and I am planning to re read those and finish the series as well as reading most of Day s published works What I didn t know about Scandalous Liaisons before picking it up was that it is a bind up of three interconnected novellas so I will be reviewing a Overall rating for the three stories combined 3 starsStolen Pleasures 2 starsUnfortunately this little story suffered from Short Story Syndrome it had very little depth was at times hard to follow and didn t really make a whole lot of sense Lucien s Gamble 4 starsI reallynjoyed this gem of a short story It flowed well and had plenty of believable passion and steam This story played with all of my senses it felt very real to me as if I were in the story myself I did have a sense of deja vu while reading Lucien s Gamble I wondered if I had read it before or if it just had a similar story line to another book I ve read who knowsHer Mad Grace 3 starsI liked this one well Taught to Obey enough It had a little mystery to it which I liked but when the answer was revealed it felt a little choppy to me I had to reread a few parts to understand what was being revealedOverall this was annjoyable anthology and not a total waste of time I uite Learning to Dance in the Rain enjoy short stories and these were noxception Add in a pirate and some steamy action and you have me hookedDon t Rebel (The Change, expect long complex character development but of you want a uick relaxing read this is is I found the second story Lucien s Gamble the best of the three I like the strong independent heroine 3 short stories in one book the first bad boy being a pirate While the characters were fun with lots of laugh out loud moments I found them way too modern and the women too lusty ready for the time period I admit to skimming some of the over active bedroomor other places love scenes stillthree fun steamy reads Enjoyable read Injoyed the first two stories the most The third story was a little odd but goodThis book contains the following three stories4 stars for STOLEN PLEASURES Sebastian left home to be a pirate five years ago His father an Man of Her Dreams (The Enforcers, earl made a marriage agreement for a cousin to pretend to be Sebastian and marry Olivia They married but Olivia has not yet met the cousin On her way to England by ship Sebastian takes over the ship carrying Olivia and learns that she is married to hi I didn t realise before picking Scandalous Liaisons up that it was actually three novellas in one There is a reason that I usually avoid novellas they cannot be as developed as a full length novel and so something has gotta give The characters were goodnough to read about and actually I really The Plant Paradox enjoyed the premise of the novellas but they just weren t as complex as I wanted and they didn tvolve very well Everything was lustlove at first sight There was no slow building of romance or the natural tumble into love Just head first down the stairs BANG BANG BANG love It just makes it all seem super unbelievable Essentially after the plot was Little Sister (Sweet Dreams, established the novellas just turned intorotica without any other plot or depth pardon the Namen-Und Sach-Register Zum Jahresbericht �ber Die Fortschritte in Der Lehre Von Den Pathogenen Mikroorganismen Umfassend Bacterien, Pilze Und Protozo�n expression to keep me interested I like reading steamy scenes as much as the next person but it isn t the only reason that I pick up a book I still need development a solid and interesting plot and some propermotionOverall if you just want uick N.76 le Mystere de Job et les preuves Initiatiques erotic reads then this is seriously your book If you are looking for something then go find a full length novel I wonder whether people were as lusty and cock obsessed in the olden days as Sylv would have us believe One to ponder methinksThis was three short stories in one with some recurring characters They all followed a similar theme usually a reformed manwhore and in one story shockingly a woman finds true love after much bodice ripping Really love how scandalised people are by horrors touching hands without gloves on and the like I d like to think Injoyed a little social history lesson along the way as well as all the bump and grind That s how I justified it to myself anywayWorth a read This is an Anthology but all three novellas are written b the same Author The first one takes place in 1813 the second in 1810 and the third in 1814 At the nd of the first novella Stolen Pleasures we find out that Sebastian the Hero is friends with Remington the Hero from Lucien s Gamble the second novella Personally I think Lucien s Gamble should have come first but I m sure the Author had her reasons for doing things in the order she did The third novella is about Hugh the brother of Julienne the Heroine in Lucien s Gambleand Charlotte The Heroine in Stolen Pleasures is Olivia Stolen Pleasures I liked this one although no one lement really stands out Due to what would amount to underhanded trickery by his father the Hero Sebastian marries Olivia the Heroine but he doesn t know his father the Hero Sebastian marries Olivia the Heroine but he doesn t know Sebastian due to something that he believes to be his fault left home at the point the story starts I think it had been five years and became a Pirate known as Captain Phoenix He has the misfortune to capture the ship Olivia is on Olivia is on her way to England from the West Indies to meet her husband It doesn t take long for her to learn the truth nor does it take long for the two of them to decide they are perfectly okay with the idea of being married to #each other When they reach England we learn better what his Dad had planned least I think #other When they reach England we learn what his Dad had planned at least I think did I m not sure if Sebastian s cousin Carr was going to be Sebastian or if his Dad was I m pretty sure it was Carr but something Sebastian says to his Dad makes me think it could be the other case Anyway after the confrontation between father and son and some miscommunication between husband and wife they live HEA Lucien s Gamble As the older sister Julienne feels responsible for her brother Hugh The Gulag Archipelago, 1918-1956 even though he is oldnough that she shouldn t have to be his gambling has placed a burden on she and her Aunt who raised them after their parents died when Hugh was 10 I don t recall it saying how old Olivia is or was but I got the impression she is older Of course Hugh is affected also but doesn t seem to care and actually I don t think he is aware of it Anyway Olivia dresses as a man to sneak into a club she believes her brother has gone to but it turns out that may just be her Fresh faith excuse She is fascinated by and attracted to Lucien Rembrandt the Hero the owner of the club It turns out the feeling is mutual and the passion between them according to Remington s mother can heat a room I love reading books where the couple is brought together by fateestiny andr by overwhelming attraction and passion Stolen Pleasures was a factestiny and Lucien s Gamble is an attractionassion Okay maybe some curiosity thrown in there as well which is why Julienne went to the club and why Remington let her stay Her Mad Grace I finished this onearlier today and although what I had learned about Hugh in the previous story didn t leave me with a page turning desire to read his story I did and I m glad Hugh has become a much better person in the last couple of years the time lapse between the two is 4 years Charlotte for reasons we do learn is pretending to be someone she is not After learning her reasons along with the names and partial descriptions of her motley crew of servants I m hoping there is another book because to my way of thinking it leaves loose nds and unanswered uestions Such as do they find the treasure that supposedly xists and what The New Left the Origins of the Cold War exactly is wrong with Katie that she can t carry the tea tray without massive clinking of the service Artemis is a true character not just in looks for starters he only has oneye that seems to bulge out of his head and he speaks his mind What happened to Artemis other The Right Hook of Devin Velma eye it never says unless I missed it Tom and I think his name is Harry don t have the book handy also apparently have physical shortcomings that only detract from their looks but not their abilities or personality The only other servant is Katie who I ve already mentioned There is one other person in the house besides the ones already named and that is Guinevere aka Gwen who is the illegitimate Granddaughter of the Duke who is deceased her father the current Duke wants nothing to do with her but having learned about her years ago she s now 17 her Grandfather took her in and raised her This story turned out to be a really good page turner but due to the uestions I have I m hoping there is a seuel It would be nice to know what happens to Gwen after Finishing School among other things already mentioned My review contains spoilers and they re mostly my thoughts as I went with the book Rating based on 3 novellas by Sylvia Day Stolen Pleasures 375 stars Lucien s Gamble 3 stars and Her Mad Grace 25 stars Stolen Pleasures In this novella we met pirate captain Phoenix in the West Indies when he captures a ship and it s most beautiful occupant the daughter of the owner Olivia Now Sebastian who s thearl of Merrick in truth knows this is his brid.
