Carol *Young at Heart Oldie*
Tiffany Clare is a new-to-me author and I was lucky enough to win a copy of this book. What a delicious treat it turned out to be! The combination of endearing hero and heroine, sparkling dialogue, fascinating secondary characters and some sizzling hot love scenes made this an extremely enjoyable read.

Four years ago, Leo met Genny, the woman who ‘meant more to him than he could ever fathom’, but being young and stupid, he walked away from her at his father's bidding. Four years ago, Genny fell i...more

Must we always return to the scene of the crime?

It was going to be an uncomplicated season for Genevieve Camden. She was not going to be on the marriage market, just a chaperone to her cousin. Genny is considered on the spinster track so her only objective was to get her cousin married off to the right man. A simple, unexciting time in the ballroom for Genny and everything was going as planned until Leo set foot in the door.

Leo Harrow, Earl of Barrington was a rogue, scoundrel, and all around...more

Mm this book had good moments and not so good moments. Mostly it doesn't feel fully fleshed out or well rounded with the main characters or the people in their lives. The whole wager scheme felt silly and never really went anywhere, and yet they made it such a huge deal about it at the end it felt kind of contrived. I also am not the biggest fan of the plot where lovers with a past eventually come back together again unless there is a really good reason for them not being together, and his reaso...more

A new series, this is the first book. A group of friends-quite outside the bounds o fpropriety, yet part of the Ton-rally around one of their own. Leo and Genny had an affair years ago but Leo left without marrying her. Now she works as a paid companion to her cousin. Leo has inherited and is involved in is estate. When they meet, Leo is trying to stop her charge from marrying as that will affect his friend. The sparks betwen them are still there but, the betrayal from before still casts a pall....more

Bland, dull. In London May-August 1846, rogue #1 Leo Harrow, Earl of Barrington, meets old flame Genevieve Camden again at dinner, dance, shop, opera, greenhouse where he "can name just about every flower" p 168, but she suspects seduction. "He'd always appreciated her in the flesh" p 190. Their bodies instantly, constantly, vividly recall hot nights.

Likely sequels, Tristan, Hayden, and new widow Jez try to save Genny's cousin Charlotte from possibly villainous Mr Warren. More description of ha...more

May Mostly Romance
หงุดหงิดกะหนังสือเพราะรู้สึกว่า คนแต่งไม่ได้วางแผนเรื่องมาอย่างดี ตอนต้นก่อนเริ่มแต่ละบท จะเอาบางส่วนของข่าวซุบซิบของหนังสือพิมพ์มาลง เพื่อเป็นการปูเรื่องถึงเหตุการณ์ที่จะเกิดขึ้นในบทนั้น ๆ

ปัญหาก็คือ มันเป็นข่าวอื้อฉาว เช่นนางเอกแอบนัดพบพระเอกตามลำพัง แต่ในเนื้อเรื่องกลับไม่มีการพูดถึงประเด็น (ที่นางเอกเป็นข่าวในหนังสือพิมพ์) เลย ทำให้เห็นชัด ๆ ว่า ส่วนนี้มาเขียนเติมที่หลัง จะเรียนแบบมุขของ Lady Whistledown รึไง แต่อันนั้นเราว่าจูเลีย ควินน์วางแผนมาได้ดีกว่า (และจูเลีย ควินน์ก็ไม่ใช่นักเขียนที่ข...more

A deliciously sexy tale, which I gave a rating of 4.5. Taken from my review at RomanceJunkies.com:

Leo Harrington, Earl of Barrington, and his three friends are considered the four degenerates of society, as they seek their pleasures for the sole purpose of mocking their station in society. With the death of the abusive husband of their friend Jez, the Countess of Fallon, the other three are trying their best to cheer her up. It is not her husband’s death that has her down, but the fact that he h...more

I absolutely adored the first books I had picked up from Tiffany Clare so I was extra excited that she was jumping in to a historical romance series, one of my favorite book genres. Unfortunately I was a little disappointed with the story compared to her earlier titles. I still enjoyed the characters and Ms. Clare has wonderful technique in being able to convey the richness and beauty of the ballroom and the overall setting. I was just missing a bit of conflict in this story. So this story wasn’...more

It was all right. But there was too much waffling in it for me. The hero didn't even think of marrying the heroine he basically secretly ruined years earlier, until the end of the book. Of course the heroine was a willing participant, but this is suppose to not be contemporary.
So the romance just wasn't ringing true to me. It was more lust. Especially when they met again.

This just dragged on. That is all that happened in this book. Two people having an affair, twice.

Just a bit shallow for my...more

Creo que el problema para acabar de conectar con los personajes ha sido que este libro forma parte de una trilogía donde las 3 historias suceden simultaneamente, por lo que nos falta información. Ojo, no solo lo achaco a eso, pero si una buena parte.

Como tengo el siguiente libro, lo leeré, pero el desenlace aun no está escrito y eso me preocupa, porque sino consigue engancharme de verdad esta vez, no creo que me moleste en esperar al año que viene para saber el final.

Enjoyed the story, but did not like the writing stlye of the author. Constantly had to reread the dialogue, because I had to figure out who was speaking.
Brittany
I really liked the background set up an characters in this new series! I honestly can't wait to get my hands on the others in the series. If the second is as good as I hope I will buy the whole series an add Tiffany Clare on my must buy list! Highly recommend.
Karen
It wasn't horrible, but I felt like the author played pretty fast and loose with Society conventions to make the plot work out the way she wanted, and the whole nonsense of the wager that so upset Genny felt very forced.
David Marshall
I suppose, as romances go, this is OK. It's not intended to be historical nor to explore the more cruel sides of life in 1846.

Kind of a slow read and at times it felt like you were going in circles but I did enjoy the theme of the book. And Genny was a great character though she almost takes over that of her love interest Leo.

Ok, enough to make me want to read the next in the series, I was more intrigued by Charlotte and Tristan, then the two leads in this one, hopefully it only gets better in the next.
Maryanne
wonderful read
Amber Garabrandt
It is the mark of a good romance when you read the last line and immediately look up when the next in the series comes out. I can't wait until April.
Jen Pezzotti
I know I said this should have been a novella. Then I wad shocked at how abruptly it ended. Not too sure I will read the rest of this series or not.
Jennifer Mcpherson
Ok to read main character should be more interested. hopefully next one is not so boring

Deciding that life had far more to offer than a nine to five job, bickering children and housework of any kind (unless she's on a deadline when everything is magically spotless), Tiffany Clare opened up her laptop to write stories she could get lost in. Tiffany writes historical romances set in the Victorian era and is currently working on her Desire Me Now series for Avon Impulse, which releases...more
