More lists with this book...
I have been waiting for this novel for a whole year since I read the first book of this series . My wait was not in vain. I pre-ordered this from Amazon and when it came on my Kindle….
I will fully disclose that I am biased when it comes to Teresa Medeiros as I own all of her books.
ALL. Of. Them.
So, reviewing her latest book will be like a soccer mom watching her ...more
I searched far and wide on GR for a review that would tell me WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON IN THIS BOOK?? I had a guess and felt pretty confident that I was right. But I needed to know. I always NEEDED to know. So before I had time to finish the book, I combed through reviews after reviews, hoping to find someone who was kind enough to "spoil the book" for me.
People hinted at "the mystery", and nobody wrote any details. I was going nuts!!
So I said to myself, I would do ...more
Me ha gustado bastante. Ese toque tétrico del castillo está conseguido.
Punto a mi favor que no me acordara de la novela anterior donde se supone que él no fue del todo buena persona.
De todas formas, hay ciertos detalles que me han parecido demasiado forzados y, como siempre que estamos ante el tandem señor-ama de llaves, los personajes no se comportan como esperamos de ellos.
En conjunto la lectura me ha gustado. Una buena combinación de misterio (pequeño pero interesan ...more
In the end, it was a charming story, but not wonderful. The *potential* was there for an awesome book:
"We're all haunted in one way or another, are we not? If not by spirits, the...more

Max has been left at the altar by his childhood friend who he loved, a woman he thought loved him back, but he knew deep down she loved his brother more than anything. She leaves Max for his brother Ash and now Max is the talk of the town. To get away from gossip and to just wallow, he heads for Cadgwyck Manor, a rundown home that will give him some solitude to lick his wounds. What he wasn’t expecting was to be heading to a manor that’s ru ...more
Teresa Medeiros's writing is so evocative, emotive and passionate...

I've read the first installation of the Burke brothers books - towards the end, i felt really sorry for Max. This book really gave him the HEA he deserves.
Story started off in a good pace. There's mystery, suspense and a general feelgood to the whole storyline. Good, responsible and starchy Max has now become quite the opposite - he was jilted ...more
En definitiva otra historia de diez que nos regala Teresa Medeiros, quedo con inmensas ganas de leer más libros suyos =)
Sin embargo, ese mismo servicio forma una pintoresca familia de personajes muy peculiares y que merece la pena conocer. Anne es la ama da ...more
Hace unos meses conseguí el primer libro de esta bilogía y no quise leerlo hasta tener los dos libros juntos. Afortunadamente se presentó la oportunidad de conseguir este libro y ya que lo tuve, no quise dejar pasar la oportunidad de leerlo primero. Cosa que no suelo hacer, siempre me gusta leer las series en orden, aunque los librosno tengan mucho que ver uno con el otro, pero no en esta ocasión.
A mí me encantan las novelas de Teresa Medeiros porque suelen ser muy divertidos, además de román...more
And if anyone knows me, I am an ardent fan of Teresa Medeiros, since I was a teenager. I have read all her books except a few. Of course, I always have high expectation for her book ...more

Mucho mejor que la anterior.
Vuelve Maximilien, el que salió perdiendo del libro anterior. Ahora solo, humillado, amargado y confundido, se refugia en Cornualles, donde su particular servicio doméstico se las hará ver negras.
Seré sincera, el comienzo de este libro no me gustó. Anne deliberadamente trata mal a Max para obligarlo a abandonar su residencia, lo esconde bajo una sonrisa servicial, pero el chico casi muere de hambre. No me gustan ese tipo de situaciones. Yo rogaba porque Max se de ...more
So, I’m a nerd.
Basically Me 24/7: I do so feverently believe internal and external conflicts in late Londonian Regency era novels are preposterously complicated to construct.
Okay, so apparently I’m a weirdo too, but you got the joke. I like using my brain meat to overanalyze fake people who exist on a page. Diagnosing all those elements t ...more
Cadgwyck has a strange sort of housekeeper in Anne Spencer. She spends her days doing her best to ch ...more
This is book two of the Burke Brothers series by Teresa Medeiros. I didn’t really want to read book one of this series,The Pleasure of Your Kiss until I saw the blurb of this book. He’s the stuffy boring guy that all the interesting Regency girls are not interested in marrying, because look it’s a rake who wants to reform! You know the other guy, the patient sweet guy who in the other Regencies are running to Gretna G ...more
Os ingredientes foram um fantasma feminino, uma ama de chaves nada convencional e um duque que perdeu a mulher que amava para o irmão mais novo(ótima a história dele/El placer de un beso). Misturou personagens secundários fascinantes e conseguiu me manter grudad ...more

Great story! ["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>
