I enjoyed this book over the other two in Tracy Anne Warren's "Mistress" series. There was TAW's typical segment of discord but, although it got old by the end, it didn't feel completely inorganic to me as others have. For one thing, the typically sweet heroine didn't become a raving shrew to the hero. That's something that Warren sometimes does to keep the discord going when there's obviously no reason for it to continue, and it works a lot better when the insults don't fly.

The heroine, Gabriel...more
I didn't like this one as much as the previous 2. And, no, it's not because of the age difference (He is 35 and she is 17). I really liked Tony and Gabriella characters but the story just didn't work for me.
I enjoyed the first two novels in this series, but this one didn't work for me at all. Right off the bat, I was turned off by the 17-year-old heroine and 30-something-year-old hero. (I missed his exact age and don't really care, it's gross whatever the digit after the 3_ is. :=) )

Going forward, though, this turned out to be yet another story that was completely about a man's refusal to say three little words, which I find tedious. Don't get me wrong -- it's fine to take some time to say those w...more
When I realized the heroine was 17 and the hero (I cannot exactly remember and felt too lazy to check in the previous books) somewhere around 35, I was worried. Then I realized the heroine was to boot the illegitimate daughter of a former villain and an actress and I wondered how she could fit with a Duke.
In TAW's world, social acceptance of imperfect lineage, and a few other behaviors (view spoiler)...more
Shamefully addictive. So predictable and formulaic, but satisfying none the less. Doesn't everyone like to see a bad boy gone good and a feisty lady get her happy ending. At least the heroine's no simpering little darlin', and the characters are well defined. There is a plot. Yay.
Don't really like very young heroines and this one was.

Loved the nod she gave to the Trap trilogy in one of the last scenes of the book. Very subtle and clever and you would really only notice it if you had read the previous trilogy.

I enjoyed this book but I think they could have made her slightly older maybe 20 or more.Had a bit of a problem with her being only 17.Overall it didnt take away from my enjoyment of the book.

Gabriella and Tony met under most unconventional circumstances; she held a gun on him in his friend Rafe's library. After finding out that she really had no reason to hate Rafe (her uncle), she was enveloped in the bosom of her newfound family. After meeting, she nor Tony can get the other out of their heads, and sneak more and more time together. When they marry, she is in love with him and hopes he feels the same, but she overhears a conversation where Tony says he doesn't love her and their m...more

The age difference of the characters did not bother me at all! (Now had it been 17 and a 65 yr old that would have been different.) The story was good, but I didn't like how it seemed to fast forward so often.... Like each chapter would start out with, "Three weeks later..." Because I felt I just missed out on three weeks worth of their 'falling in love' story. Other than that, I enjoyed the book :)

Enjoyed this series from such a great author.
I liked the characters well enough, but they were somewhat inconsistent. The plot ran a little thin & contrived. The racy bits were decent, as usual for Warren's work, but this novel just didn't pull together as well as hers usually do. Found myself saying, "Oh, come on, really!?" way too often to actually get lost in the book. Still, an entertaining read for a beach day.
Tony loved his bachelorhood and believed that he would never give it up for anyone until he meets Gabriella. And without even knowing it he finds himself in love with her and having to fight for trust. Once again Tracy Anne Warren book leaves me wanting to read her next book.

It's worth reading -- I like the story and the characters but it left me asking how old Tony was. Marrying at a young age ( in case of Gabriella ,17, ) is normal during her time but still --- I'm curious ----

Like the previous book, I thought it was an average romance novel. Interesting characters, although there were occasional eye rolls from me during some of the "inner conflict moments" of the characters.

This was entertaining. My first by this author. Definitely steamy and hot. I didn't quite get the title of this book....didn't make any sense. This is part of a the Mistress Trilogy though.

Interesting end to the series, but not really all that adventurous or outstanding. A good calm weekend read!
This one was my favorite in the series. If you have read the trap series pay attention at the end.
Eh, not as good as the first two, but a fun read nonetheless.
I liked this one much better than the rest.
Wonderful! Just as good as the first two!
