I can't believe that I have come to the end of the series *gasp*....I have loved each and every one of these books and will miss the Knight siblings and partners.

Am now interested in reading the Spice Trilogy as they tell the stories of the Knight cousins who are Captain Arthur's children.

His Wicked Kiss was a generally enjoyable book that was a pretty good wrap-up to the Knight Miscellany series. It begins in the jungles of Venezuela which was a rather unique setting for a romance novel, then continued with some high-seas adventure and a quick trip to Ireland, before settling into the usual glitz and glitter of the Regency ton. There are a lot of Gaelen Foley's trademarks present here. She always seems to have a knack for drawing me into the story and mak
I really like the premise for this one - the lonely, spirited heroine, shoved off to some jungle with her selfish father absorbed in his work. She is desperate to get out and having spent most of her spare time dreaming about an idealized vision of London Society, just can't wait to get there. Her "saviour" is extremely jealous, likes using his fists to sort things out, has a boatload of personal issues, including a deep dislike of Society, as well as a need for a wife, and is used to being the ...more

This should be a 4 1/2 star review as I was a tad, a smidge disappointed with the somewhat rushed ending but I cannot thank my good friend ATron enough for turning me on to this author (and sending me her well loved books!! ;D) It was another excellent read.

I am a little saddened that this journey of the Knight Miscellany is over. I was captivated by the entire family and agree with some that Lucien Knight (Lord of Fire) was the best one written. He's my favorite brother, hero and overall book.

A gauge of how much I like a book (romance) is whether or not I will reread it. My modus operandi is return to a book again and again if I really, really love it. I really, really love this book. It is a great finale to the series. Here are some of the reasons why this book will make its way into my "love enough to reread" pile:

1) This regency romance got off to a great and compelling start by opening with the heroine, Eden Farrady in a jungle setting in Sout

No one had ever loved him before, not like this, and he simply dreaded doing or saying one wrong thing that would take her love away from him. It was more precious to him than gold, but it felt as fragile as a flower.

I LOVED Eden and Jack so much. As characters, and as a couple. Eden was always going to be a very different, interesting heroine because of her upbringing in the jungles of South America. She does dream of England and London Society and balls and gowns and all, but she can'

Forget all the rest, I am seriously having a Jack attack!! In Book 7 of the Knight Miscellany I fell in love all over again. We are taken out of the drawing room and into the Amazon. No longer is it just regular battles and backstabbing nope, we get to see the world. Ms Foley takes us on an adventure sharing bits of our world history outside of England at that time and reminding us that there were always those who walked their own paths.

I really enjoyed this book, but it wasn't quite what I was expecting. The beginning was especially fun. The way Jack met Eden was thoroughly charming. It was no wonder he was swept away.

But then things changed a little. It seemed like maybe Jack was the Knight brother who was scarred the most. And I had a hard time with how he expressed himself sometimes. (view spoiler)

This was a fun read. Lord Jack was sinful and he knows it. So when sweet and innocent Eden asks him for a ride back to England, he knows it is in her best interest for him to say no. Eden though is determined to get back to England no matter what. So when she stows away on Jack's ship, the sparks really fly. We didn't really know much about Jack from the other books, so he is a dark horse coming into the story. It was an emotional one at times and I felt for him throughout the book. Eden was goo ...more

This book started with a bang. The hero and heroine were enigmatic and intriguing and seemed to be on course to having a great story. Unfortunately everything seemed to fizzle out a little in the middle. The mental/emotional drama seemed forced and did not seem to have sufficent background for either character. Overall the story was sweet and did provide a quasi-ending for the Knight heroes, but it was not my favorite of the series. I do have the Spice Trilogy still to read, which is supposed to ...more

Do poslednej knihy zo série o Knightovcoch namiešala Gaelen iba tie najlepšpie veci. Romantika sa tu snúbi s dobrodružstvom a s pirátmi. Čo viac si môže romantická dušička priať od historickej romance?

Dej začína pútavo v džungli, kde nebojácna a svojská Eden zostrelí hada. Eden nie je typická mladá šľachtická dievčina, ktorá chodí na plesy, na nákupy a necháva sa obletovať mladými gavaliermi. Nie veru. Eden je dcérou muža, doktora, ktorý po smrti manželky opustil Londýn a zamenil jeho lesk za v

This was a lot different than the other books in the series because the characters came from such a different part of the world. After they moved to London I wanted to shake Eden to life and not have her be so terrible to Jack.

I really enjoyed this last installment of the Knight family, only to be pleasantly surprised that we aren't quite done! Yea for cousins! I love reading series books, it is like getting to catch up with old friends and read at the same time!

I liked Eden and Jack, they were a sweet couple. There love story was very nicely written. I thought that their feelings were very real, but I wish they would have communicated with each other a little better. That lack was frustrating - their feelings and act

What a great read to end this fantastic series! Lucien Knight is still my favorite!!! However, I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the development of each sibling throughout the series! I was thrilled to see each personality explored, enabling me to understand the why and how of the character. I loved that how despite the sins of the parents, the Knight siblings remained loyal to each other and their spouses. I adore Ms. Foley's attention to detail and her ability to transport me into each sett ...more

If you are like me, then never EVER "skim" (read) the last chapters of a book before you should, because it will ruin the book for you. That's what I did with this book and it's why it took me so long to officially finish it. I had read about halfway, but I wanted to see how the book would end for some reason so I read the last chapters and after that I just couldn't muster up the will to read through the middle part knowing the ending. It also made it in anticlimactic since I already knew what ...more
I stopped reading Regency Romance for a few months because I had a near fatal overdose. Too many soft gasps of delight, too many sexual thoughts about the skin beneath a lady's glove, and far too many gentlemen who were darn-right dirty beneath their waiscoats and breeches. I needed a break.

"His Wicked Kiss" was therefore one of my first forays back into the glittering ballroom of the regnecy world. And my golly, what a good start!

I found the setting the most enjoyable element of the novel, the

Eden Faraday lives on a secluded island with her father Victor. She longs to get off the island and see more than what she has already experienced. She is exotic and innocent a perfect combo for our pirate Jack Knight.

Jack really is estranged from his family he doesn't feel he fits in normal society. His mother Georgianna Knight had an affair with a prized fighter and so normal society didn't welcome him in their circles. It's ok, he's done well for himself with a successful shipping business an

Quite frankly I'm just upset by this book. I've read most of the other Knights Miscellany books, but never have I been more disappointed by the Authoress and her protagonists.

Lord Jack "The Mopey" Knight annoyed me to no means end. It's is one thing to miss sex but for Christ's sake, (view spoiler)

The beginning of the book was fabulous. The middle of the book was much too long and almost did me in. The ending made up for the middle and did a lot for redeeming this book for me. I didn't realize until I finished the book that this was the last book in a series, so it made sense as to why there were so many characters from other books featured and other story lines going on at the same time.

I got to 83% before I decided that no matter what happened in the end, I was done with these two. Although, honestly I was skimming the majority of the book and wondering why I remember liking Foley... Still haven't figured it out.

I'm not even going to get into it other than to say that rape isn't cool. It's especially not cool to whine at your wife about wanting NEEDING sex, and then give a deadline for her to give it up, complete with almost committing adultery cause NEEDS and threatening to c

Amazing! I loved the jack and Eden individually and I loved their relationship together it was so beautiful. I also loved the adventure and the exotic location of the tropics so cool I also loved how unconventional Eden was but I wish that continued throughout the book, I found it a bit difficult to believe how easily she adjusted to being in London society and civilisation again after living in the jungle for most of her life. I also would liked a bit more family drama I found it unrealistic ho ...more
The seventh and last of the Knight Miscellany series by Gaelen Foley. This story is about Lord Jack Knight. He's on a secret mission when Eden Farraday stows away on board his ship. I liked it but not my favorite at all. Starts out in South America.

So while yes, Jack is sexy and swashbuckling, the man needs some therapy. It would be helpful for him if, you know, it weren't the Regency period in England....but still. Eden is rad (though she puts up with way more than I would). I do love ships though and a story on one just makes me generally happy.

For a series wrap-up (all based on personal preference of course):

Everytime I read a book from Gaelen I ask myself could this author get any better?
And the answer is: YES! I don't know how she does it but I'm sure glad she does.
I enjoyed this book so much! I loved the whole series in fact.
I tried to read it slowly. I wanted it to last :) But that just won't work with any Gaelen's book. The pages almost turn by themselves, that's how captivating the read is.
I bought every book from this series that's how amazing they are. They deserve a place on my book shelf a
