Great Book Great Series Highly recommend them all audible reviewWow this story was probably my favorite of the entire series and they are all very good I really enjoyed the heroine She was smart spunky daring beautiful and just a joy I also really enjoyed the hero He was just great I loved that his character was handsome smart and a bit flawed with his anxiety issues The chemistry between these two was great Genuine real and very hot and steamy Yes there are some very well written hot and steamy sex scenes but not over the topThe story line and plot was great There is a serial killer on the loose and our heroine has take it pon herself to find out who the culprit is Very good story line And the killer that was a surprise for sure I was glad to see the characters from the previous books show سيدات القمر up That was nice This story is fool of dialogue Lots and lots of it Which made the story even better Not full of angst or any of that nonsense I really have enjoyed this author so much As for the narration It seemed to get better as the books went on I do think she still needs to work on her mens voices for sure the odd thing was the voice shesed for Sophia when she was dressed as a man investigating was better than the hero s voice She should Lucifer (Blakes 7) use that voice for her hero s She does do all the cockney voices well like Alice her maid The reading voice was less robotic too I highly recommend this series 100% I hope to see of her books on audible in the future My Favorite OneI ve loved all the Wicked Deceptions book and this is by far my favoriteint believes himself broken but as we know today PTSD is not Modern Love untreatable And Sophie is by far annconventional heroine While The Ghetto Exorcist (Coal Hill Review Chapbook Series) uint isn t the reformed rogue or the manly man that Nick and Simon he is definitely my favorite hero of this seriesHowever I have high hopes for the Scotsman MacLean and hope he gets a book soon If you have been reading the first two novels in Ms Joanna Shupe s wickedly entertaining Wicked Deceptions series then you have been just as anxious as myself in learning of Lady Sophia Barnes latest adventures or should I say misadventures After all lady Sophia has emerged as one of the most rebellious rabble rousers for justice Not that the ton knew what she wasp to as she donned the persona of Sir Stephen while roaming London s sordid Peace underbelly of gaming hell s and brothelsFrom the very beginning of this series there has been a malevolent evil stalking the innocent ladies of the evenings who make a living working the brothels As her two best friends and co conspirators have settled into marriage and impending motherhood Sophia feels it is her duty to carry on and discover who is killing and maiming the women However as itnfolds playing the part of Sir Stephen has landed Lady Sophia in somewhat of a jam as she has been called out to participate in a duel The only person she can call on to help her is Damien Beecham Viscount New England A to Z uint the one man who had broken her heart and whom she needs to teach her how to shoot a gunWhat Sophia didn t know is thatint has never gotten over her and is fearful he is on his own way to a break down just like his father who had gone mad He is trying his best to keep Lady Sophia at bay rather than let her know just how much he wants her and will practically die in the process of trying to protect her In LADY HELLION Ms Shupe has outdid herself in creating the suspense and romance that has gained her such a following with her first two books in this series I really loved the idea of sing a hero who was going through his own very

s too bad that there s no way I can recommend this book I have really enjoyed this series and wastoo bad that there s no way I can recommend this book I have really enjoyed this series and was looking forward to the third book because of the nusual irky And Uselessly Cute Hero Joanna uselessly cute hero Joanna is a talented new historical romance authorHowever once I read the blurb I knew this wouldn t be my favourite in the series The woman From Mistress to Wifey undercover in men s clothes trope is far and away my least favourite in the genreOne of the biggest problems with this theme is that I can barely buy a regular woman of the Georgian era dressing as a man and goingndercover in brothels But as the historical romance genre is obsessed with the aristocracy we have a daughter of nobility doing it and that s one massive anachronism too far for meI don t think this is a bad book not at all It still has the complex plotting and the good writing that I ve seen in the author s other work It s just that it was too Disney Infinity: Character Encyclopedia unbelievable for me to really get into When I read books in this genre I sometimes stop and think What would Jane Austen s Elizabeth Bennet do And she definitely wouldn t have done anything the characters in this book didI ll give the author props for the proper spelling of arse but must point out that outside of America it s knives and forks not forks and knivesIf you re fine with cross dressing heroines in your historical romances you ll probably really enjoy this especially so if you don t stop and wonder how nobody noticed the man s voice was a woman s However it just wasn t my sort of book though I would strongly recommend the others in the series Review copy provided by Ne I ve given this a C at AARThis is the final book in Ms Shupe s Wicked Deceptions trilogy in which the stories are linked by the three male protagonists who are long term friends I enjoyed the first book The Courtesan Duchess and felt Ms Shupe was an author to watch She writes well her characters are strongly drawn and she can certainly turnp the heat when called forYet I was a little reluctant to pick Dance With The Devil up this book despite having enjoyed meeting its hero Damien Beecham Viscountint in the previous stories My lack of enthusiasm was entirely due to the fact that the eponymous Lady Hellion spends a lot of time running about dressed as a man in order to pursue the investigations she Smitten undertakes and chicks in strides is my least favo.

Urite trope in the entire canon of historical romance But I was keen to reacuaint myself with int so I decided to suspend my disbelief and read The Lady Hellion anyway and it turned out to be an okay read if not an especially deep one The story picks 1898 up shortly after the previous book leaves off and we learn thatint who was shot trying to help Lady Maggie Hawkins escape the clutches of a murderous blackmailer is seriously ill Lady Sophie Barnes daughter of the Maruess of Ardington is vibrant beautiful Night of the Werewolf (Choose Your Own Nightmare, unmarried and intends to remain so Now aged twenty eight Sophie believes that a youthful indiscretion has rendered hernfit for marriage a circumstance which led to her rejecting the one suitor Lay My Burden Down uint she truly cared for some years earlier In any case she doesn t want to surrender her independence or the purpose she has found inndertaking investigations on behalf of those who are too poor and insignificant to be able to seek justice for themselves most of whom are female servants or prostitutes Her investigations often take her into many of the less respectable parts of London so Sophie who is tall and lithe and who wears her hair short disguises herself as a young man The author attempts to make it seem plausible that she manages to get away with it by mentioning that she disguises herself only at night because the light is poorer and saying that Sophie has to alter the pitch of her voice but as anyone who listens to audiobooks as often as I do will know there is only so far even the most highly skilled vocal actress can go in making herself sound like a man And I just couldn t buy the ease with which the daughter of a maruess is able to sneak in and out of her home at all hours of the day and night As I said the whole girl in breeches thing rarely works for me so instead I focused my attentions on Viscount Vérité (Love at Center Court, uint who is a charming rumpled sexy geek of a hero and definitely the best thing about the bookFollowing his recovery from a serious feverint has become something of a recluse finding himself Beyond the Qumran Community unable to put a foot outside his home without turning into aivering wreck As a boy he watched his father succumb to madness and now given the terrible fits he has begun to experience Daniels Pet uint believes himself to be travelling the same path He reminded me rather of Dorian Camoys the hero of Loretta Chase s The Mad Earl s Bride in that respect it s easy for the reader to figure out what s wrong with him given our twenty first century viewpoint but all Damien knows is that he is subject to debilitating episodes and fears the worstHaving seen his father s condition destroy his motherint knows that marriage is out of the Losing Control uestion no matter how much he still longs for Sophie When he learns of her secret double life and the reasons for it he is horrified not because of a sense of outraged propriety but because he fears for her safety fears which are borne out when she is setpon one night and almost killed Unable to accompany her and knowing she won t listen to his pleas for her to stop Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep (light novel) uint instead agrees to help her by working behind the scenes and makes her promise to keep him fully informed and not to act without his consentThis is an odd setp a heroine who can t or won t stop putting herself into danger from which the hero is physically PHILIPPINES 1/1M3 unable to extract her because he can t leave his house Sophie is of course convinced that she will be able to fixint *an attitude I found incredibly patronising seeing as she has no idea that what he s really suffering from are severe *attitude I found incredibly patronising seeing as she has no idea that what he s really suffering from are severe attacks and he s convinced he s going round the bend so before the sexytimes commence he makes it clear he isn t planning to marry her It s true that سفر عاشوريات _ 1000 جملة ساخرة uint is supposed to be eccentric andnconventional but I found it
Difficult To Believe He Would Be THATto believe he would be THAT He s a gentleman and to have sex with a well bred young woman and have no intention of marrying her for whatever reason just doesn t ring true Mind you Ms Shupe gets some brownie points for writing a hero who The Angel Intrudes (1918) uses contraception other than the withdrawal method And while I m on the subject the sex scenes are written in a way rathernusual for the genre instead of the Clarions Call usual euphemisms when we re inint s PoV we get correct anatomical terms which while perhaps intended to indicate Claimed by the Wolf 1-4 uint s erudition are not very sensual or romanticThere s a sub plot aboutint s work for the government as a code breaker which doesn t add much to the overall story and is another instance of the author over egging the pudding as I found with The Courtesan Duchess and I did get rather tired of Sophie s refusal to acknowledge the danger to which she repeatedly subjects herself Funny in Farsi uint is a one of my favourite kinds of hero the beta with a take charge streak but he s wasted here There s a fair amount of chemistry between the couple butltimately the story wasn t strong enough for me to be able to forget my dislike of the cross dressing trope and Sophie strayed too close to TSTL for my taste I plan to read by Ms Shupe but The Lady Hellion
