2.5 Aprobado
Escrita de una forma muy sencilla con una total carencia (durante la primera mitad) de ambientación. He echado de menos conocer a otros personajes y, sin dudar, una relación más elavorada entre ello.
El cae muy rápido para ser un libertino y, sus grandes exigencias en la cama, no las he acabado de entender.
Ella, al principio me ha convencido, pero el cambio radical que da dadas sus recientes circunstancias es totalmente inverosímil
Todo ocurre muy muy muy rápido, para ser un libertin

It's very easy to lose yourself within the words of a book, especially if the book is Raine Miller's. I finished this book a week ago and tried and tried to compose a review that I felt justified this story. Many times, I wanted to squeal and swoon at the same time. Other times, I had to set my kindle to the side and gain composure of myself. I found it very hard to concentrate doing my daily tasks as I dwelled upon the chapter I had finished. I absolutely did not find one single thing about ...more

En realidad es 2.5 los protas fueron predecibles y la historia no me gustó tanto.
De hecho... Me acabo de dar cuenta que es la misma autora de Naked y bueno... Esos libros NO ME GUSTARON NADA. Pero para gustos...

This was my first book by Raine Miller and I really enjoyed it. The story was really good as were the character's. The hero said some really sigh worthy things to the heroine. It took a while for the heat to turn up but once it did, WOW! The heroine did have one TSTL moment near the end but I could understand why she would have done it. I might have done the same thing too, LOL. Of course we

the undoing of a libertine!!!! what a great story!

opening sentence...

"A proper blow always felt nice. Satisfying as hell, he thought. And he’d needed it. Badly. As usual, the sex played out just the way he liked—driving at full hop and more on the rough side of things than not."

i think i did a double take when i read this...seriously...i had to reread this! and then i laughed...yes, Ms. Miller, you have my attention!

And a few pages later this... "“You’d have to curb that whore-pipe of yours min

The Undoing of a Libertine is the second historical written by Raine Miller. Set in 1837 England the story revolves around Jeremy Greymont, a self-indulgent Libertine who must find a wife so that he can produce an heir at the insistence of his grandfather. Enter Georgina Russel, the 21 year old sister of Jeremy's friend Tom, whose father is trying desperately to marry her off. Through the story we find out that Georgina has suffered through a terrible ordeal and thus feels she is not worthy to ...more

This one was a slow read for me. The first half seemed to drag on and on, but the action picked up in the second half. The hero wavered between alpha and beta and I couldn't decide how to categorize him.

I had read this author's new work Naked just prior to reading this one. Although it was a much shorter, the writing in it seemed crisper and more focused which indicates to me that her writing style is evolving in a very good direction. Will certainly look with interest for her new releases, but

This was a beautiful, romantic, steamy and sensual read. This deep connection between Jeremy and Georgina that goes beyond lust and helps them both to overcome their past is well written. They both grow as individuals and as lovers, partners, friends.
But can I salute the fathers and brothers for taking revenge? Glad Raine Miller didn't fear to write it the way she did! Salute to her as well for that.
And if you have read all books by Raine then you will find little details from other books and ch

Wow! I have to admit I was a little hesitant to purchase this book but O.M.G. Let me explain, I was hesitant simply because I'm not a historical romance reader, never, I just never got it, that is until I discovered Raine Miller!!!! I've been turned, I love, loved this book, the characters and their story! Thank you Raine Miller for making me a believer and reader of historical romance novels!!!

Tras leer La pasión de Darius, me quedé con ganas de más, y resulta que LA CAÍDA DE UN LIBERTINO es una especie de continuación porque, aunque trata de una pareja diferente, los protagonistas del primer libro aparecen en esta novela como personajes complementarios. Estas cosas me gustan.

Es un romance de época a la antigua usanza que trata de un caballero de costumbres disolutas pero noble cuna. Tampoco es un salvaje, cínico o sinvergüenza, como muchos machotes de novela rosa. Es que ha vivido co

The first 75% of this book was a passionate, absorbing, hot and interesting read. It was very annoying to be interrupted and have to put down my kindle and come back to the real world!

Jeremy has turned 30 and is being hounded by family to marry and produce and heir. He is a really honorable and good man who has drifted through life emotionally untouched, his evenings being taken up by drink, cards and women. He feel incapable of love and has never pursued it, lots and lots of meaningless sex is

"The mind is its own place, and in itself Can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven." —John Milton, Paradise Lost(1667)

I really loved this book ... a classic love story in every sense even if predictable it was nice to go back to something like that after so many brooding angst ridden billionaires with mental issues.... made this story seem most unusual these days! Jeremy Greymont for all his faults IS mentally sound and able to love Georginia in a way that is both beautiful and r

Holy Hotness Batman! I have never been one to get into Historical Romance, but along with His Perfect Passion, these two novels by Raine Miller have helped make me a believer!

Not only are the heroes swoon worthy but the heroines are strong women who with the help of their men get through some pretty incredible circumstances.

It is no secret to anyone who knows me that I am a HUGE fan of Raine Miller's Blackstone Series. Yet even with my love of Ms. Miller, I was still reluctant to start this boo

Georgina Russell, has been raped and brutally assaulted by an unknown assailant, therefore, can not stand a man's touch, until, that is she meets Jeremy. Fast paced story filled with ...more

Another great historical erotic romance from Raine Miller. I absolutely loved this book and the Characters (Jeremy & Georgina) and so many others that made this story great. What a beautiful love story from a dark man and a damaged woman. I was so glad that the story started strong & stayed that way until the end with a few twists & turns along the way. Jeremy was unlikable right from the beginning and then how can you resist falling in love with him. Georgina, you had to love her ...more

The Undoing of a Libertine by Raine Miller is an amazing love story set in 19th century England. The story of Jeremy and Georgina grabbed me from the very first page and kept me in its seductive hold through all the trials and tribulations of their 'courtship'. The characters are strong throughout the story and I loved watching them grow from page to page.

The sex scenes, yes there are alot of them, but this is an 'erotic romance novel', and are very compelling but tastefully written and had my h

Fue una lectura relativamente ligera y entretiene hasta el final, pero siento que no puedo darle un 4 concreto ya que se me hizo muy repentino el amor que nace entre ambos, más que nada de parte de él, como que todo pasó muy rápido. Al minuto de verla lo deja todo de una por ella y quererse volver su salvador, como que hubiera sido más creíble si lo hubiera expresado más como atracción que un amor tan devoto y pasando a cursi tan repentino, pero bueno funciono para la historia.

This was about a third again too long. For the last third, I kept thinking, "Isn't it almost over?" I appreciate the time taken to thoroughly resolve the plot laid out at the beginning, but by the last scene, it was overkill. Suddenly we were hearing random gossip about unknown characters at a party and it felt like the author was just laying groundwork for some other story.
The relationship became too overly-sentimental once they were together. Too fluffy and sweet for my taste.

Ha sido un libro que me ha costado leer pero no me arrepiento la historia de Gina y Jeremy es muy tierna a pesar de todas las dificultades. Gina es un personaje fuerte que supera el miedo a la que ha sido sometida después de una agresión sexual y Jeremy es un esposo paciente que le horroriza hacer daño a su esposa. Poco a poco superaran todas las pruebas que les pondrá el destino.

Lovely book. This one had more depth than the first book. The heroine did go through a horrific trauma and the Hero stepped up to save her like a true knight in shining armor.

It was a perfect read for me. I love historicals and I love grittier, more explicit erotica. Raine gave us the perfect balance and it relieved some of my yearning for a follow up to The Muse. Jeremy and Gina are engaging couple and I loved their journey - especially as a married couple. More please!!!

Raine Miller has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara Cartland book at the tender age of thirteen. And it's a safe bet she'll never stop, because now she writes them too! Granted Raine's stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in her grave, but to her way of thinking, a hot, sexy hero never goes out of fashion. A former teacher, she's now writing sexy romance ...more
