The Pipe Organ (Tales from Grace Chapel Inn, uPer butnderneath all that was a woman who is very passionate and who secretly yearns for love for a life of her own I loved the fact that Roderick wasn t part of the nobility He didn t care for their Sublime Planet useless rules and didn t try to reform to fit their mould He was self assured ruthless and so very sexy I also loved that he treated his

you I believe you arep to the challenge Emma retorted with a grinHe leaned toward her to murmur softly against the curve of her ear In ways than one I absolutely adored the romance in this book The banter between Emma and Roderick was awesome Their chemistry was so combustible and sexy and intense I loved how Roderick couldn t help pursuing Emma even though he knew he shouldn t and how he was the only person Emma couldn t keep her control around And the sexy times was panty melting You want to give yourself to me then you give it all If we do thisI will not hold back It is all or nothing

read Luck Is No Lady First offthe cover When I first saw it I was instantly intrigued and I added it to my wish list before it even had a blurb But I am so glad that I was able to get a couple to read for a honest review Man was this goodvery enjoyable The story sets off a bit slow the first half is like a steady rytymnot super engaging but not boring either It still holds your interest but once you reach half way watch out because this story definitely put its hooks into me and wouldn t let go ntil I finished I first want to mention that this is the first book I am assuming in dealing with the three sisters Now each sister is niue in their own way but also will fight to protect one another Emma is the older of the clan she is twenty five and is technically on the shelf So she is endeavoring to aid her sisters find good matches I really admired her loyalty to her sisters and trying to find some creative ways to get out of their gambling debts Emma is very smart in mathematics so she makes a great bookkeeper I liked her spirit and fighting nature that she has Our hero is a perfect match for her He isn t one to hide away from the Ton and they both tend to meet in dark places where they discover the desire they have for each other Now the chemistry that these two have is explosive But what I liked about Amy Sands is the way she balances it out well with the other various elements of the story and the building of the emotional relationship between Roderick and Emma The night of gambling Emma takes on was such a blast I had so much fun reading that Scene Emma Is A Emma is a I really admired she is bold and daring when she needs to be I like that she does what she needs to no matter how nervous or afraid she might be We are left with a bit of a teaser here at the end that involves the two sisters I can t wait for the second bookhopefully it will be as fun as this book has been in the reading of it No one is an island Emma Not you He slid his hand around behind her

(Goosebumps SlappyWorld unworthinessI thoroughly enjoyed this gem of a book and then next book is sounding just as promising as the first I think I may have found myself an automatic buy author Ok so the book itself wasn t that bad I liked the somewhatnexceptional beta hero and the story was ok even if I don t buy the main conflict big sister sacrificing herself so that younger sisters can make advantageous marriages while she burdens all responsibilities including finding a blackmailer I have issues with that because clearly the sisters were mature enough to deal with this and most importantly I didn t get why she herself wasn t married at 25 It s never explained why she is a wallflower despite her beauty and everything Really this book isn t bad But what really incensed me enough to write a review was the extract from the second book In this book one of the sisters is kidnapped and sold at a brothel I thought her own story would then be about overcoming that trauma but boy was I wrong Her story takes places at the same time at this one so there are entire passages and short chapters repeated word for word But what really pisses me off to no end is the way her ordeal was sed view spoilerThe hero has some big bad secret which resulted in serious issues he can t be near people can t bear to be touched etc He freuented a brothel to have them teach him to accept being touched and is one day invited to a special event at said brothel This special event is the auctioning of event at said brothel This special event is the auctioning of virgin sacrifice the heroine and the Madame thought it would be a good thing for him to finally be the teacher to someone else But wait it gets worse The heroine was kidnapped drugged examined to make sure she really was a virgin and then subjected to the ordeal of standing in front of a room full of drunk men who bid for her Of course the hero steps p to save her and brings her back to his place And what is her first reaction when she finally wakes Leaving Loneliness up practically naked and in a stranger s bedroom SHE ASKS HIM TO BE HIS MISTRESS No panic attack no screeching no nothing She just calmly asks him to take her because her reputation is surely ruined anyhow so what does it matter And if that wasn t bad enough the hero brings her back to the brothel for their first time What a prize that one hide spoiler Sweet andncomplicated There was no silly drama no meanness between the main characters it was all straightforward Sometimes that s just what you want after some of the drama llama situations other books come p with that cause severe eye rolling issues Now this isn t disgustingly sweet or filled with lots of poetry and love sonnets spouted between the two main characters Their attraction starts by accident Continues At Work And Grows Through Mutual at work and grows through mutual and admiration I liked the romance and both characters Roderick is on the edges of accepted society and a bastard by birth but he s kind and not a villain just a businessman Emma is the self appointed matriarch and patriarch of her family shouldering the burden of her dead father s debt and trying to provide a season in the ton for her two younger sisters She s smart and acts normally The only person I disliked was the youngest sister Portia She was a bratty brat that lived to be sullen and ngrateful I wish she d been a mute Emma Chadwick s father was bad at money so Emma takes a job Chadwick s father was bad at money so Emma takes a job a gaming hell in order to make some cash Roderick Brentley owner of said hell has got the burning loins for his new bookkeeper Eventually they make out on a card table because gaming hell and they realize their mutual boners have grown feelings Gross 1 This was a pretty delightful romp 2 Sure the prose is a touch purple and could Literacy use some editing but I enjoyed how things developed I could havesed of Emma deciphering the hell s books and also a closure to the case of how and why his former bookkeeper had embezzled monies but I was overall impressed with the balance of family and work and socializing and secrets and feelings It just felt interesting mostly 3 Also I m already many chapters into the seuel so4 So it appears all three books in this series are intertwined in finishing the second it reminded me of things to say about the first SO NOW I M BACK TO SAY In the fury of starting the second book and attempting a review I forgot to mention how fun the ending of Luck is No Lady is While at a ball Emma challenges Roderick to a game of cards and Emma wagers her job at the hell Roderick wagers for her hand and then Emma has to struggle hard to lose and it was just kind of fun and silly and DELIGHTFUL The whole thing is kind of like that actually moments of frothy fun with a bit of neven pacing some awkward prose and the need to forgive a few things. Ley the hell's sinfully wealthy owner awakens a hunger Emma cannot deny Drawn deep into an nderworld of high stakes gambling and reckless overindulgence she soon discovers that in order to win the love of a ruthless scoundrel she will have to play the gameand give in to the pleasure of falling from grace. .
I am re reading all my 5 star rated romance novels There are 62 on my shelf and counting This is book 45 This is how my 45th re read held Die Plotter up Downgraded from 475 stars to 4 I skimmed some of the chapters that focused on other characters I did not find necessary Tropes DisguiseMistaken Identity Opposites Attract SpinsterWallflower Unstarched her Secret Identity Work Relationship Forbidden LoveORIGINAL REVIEWI read this book out of turn so my first introduction to Amy Sandas was the second in the series and I was not a fan I don t remember having issues with the prose but the characters and absurd plot in the 2nd caused me to loathe it But I had bought both at the same time so this one has been left in a dusty corner on my Kindle Today I read it In one sitting With a subtle twitch of one dark eyebrow Mr Bentley asked You are here to apply for the bookkeeping positionick plot Emma is considered to be on the shelf and has taken full responsibility of her two younger sisters and their season despite financial difficulties legacy of their late gambling father Desperate to make ends meet she manages to gain employment at Roderick Bentley s gaming hall as his bookkeeper Roderick is a by blow from a ton affair so while he moves among the them he is not fully accepted As luck would have it for The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl us imagine their surprise when both meet at the interview and recognise each other from a brief but sizzling interlude behind a curtain at a ballThis book repaired the damage that Derek in Lisa Kleypas Dreaming of You caused me Roderick does not manhandle or order Emma about He doesn t flirt or sleep with other women or spout endlessly about his conuests Roderick is kind open and caring while being hot as hell What I loved about this book is how damn into each other they are and while circumstances try to keep them apart they can t resist the fierce pull since they first met It made the book very drama free in a way that made it such a pleasant reading It s not over the top cheesy or full of clich s A Sandas keeps things happening at a very good pace and when she has to digress from the main characters it s kept relatively brief which I appreciate And the sexual tensionrelief I mean we all know why we read these books and it s not about the mystery secondary characters or the adorable household puppy Is your club infamous Mr Bentley His lips twitched Emma got the impression he detected the sarcasm in her response and it amused him Some would say so he replied Does that concern you Of course it did Of course not She kept her tone steady refusing to show the slightest hint of apprehension Despite the polished appearance of his surroundings and the well tailored cut of his clothes the man possessed an air ofnpredictability and an almost defiant nonconformity He was Killing the Truth unlike any gentleman she had ever known Such characteristics should have made her wary Instead he fascinated her This conversation is terribly inappropriate The smile he flashed wasite wicked I am not always known for being appropriate Well I am she countered That fact is as obvious as your innocence His stare was bold and At Any Cost unsettling I should go Yet here you remain I treat others only as I would wish for them to treat me Her heart beat swiftly as she heard the things he did not say She suspected he had encountered a great deal ofnfair prejudice in his life He brushed his thumb over her jaw and pressed at the corner of her mouth When her lips parted he tilted his head and swept his tongue past her teeth The deepening of the kiss brought a rush of tingling heat to her core The sensation was heavy and delicious She leaned farther into him bracing her hands on the hard surface of his thighs When she allowed her teeth to close lightly on his lower lip he groaned in earnest and drew back But it was only to grasp her around the waist as he stood drawing them both to their feet He wasted no time in enfolding her in a solid embrace Her breasts pressed wonderfully against his wide chest his hips bumped against hers Why does this moment standing with you like this in the shadows feel so right he asked She barely managed to whisper I do not know What about our personal relationship he asked in a raw murmur She licked her lips before she replied We have no personal relationship Maybe we should Emma tipped her chin to look p into his shadowed face I thought you wanted to talk she challenged in a breathless whisper This first He lowered his mouth to hers You have an Amazing Ability To Shield Yourself From Those Around You Closing ability to shield yourself from those around you Closing off to scrutiny or interference He lifted a hand to brush his knuckles over the curve of her cheek and then along her jaw to the prideful jut of her chin You go about life as though you are an island No one is an island Emma Not you He slid his hand around behind her neck Not me His lowered his head slowly and brushed his lips across head slowly and brushed his lips across with infinite care 475 stars now changed to 4 stars Netgalley for honest review 45 ratingThis romance had wonderful and likable characters This hero was a winner It s been difficult lately to find hero s that I really like What s getting old is the jerky heroman whore type that seems to be permeating books lately I can handle some but they seem to be everywhere Well this author delivered a beautiful wonderful sexy and caring hero so refreshing And the heroine was just as likable strong and also caring Thank you Amy SandasEmma our heroine has lost her Mother and most recently her Father I ve given this a C at AAR so 35 starsThe first book in a new series from Amy Sandas Luck is No Lady tells the story of a
