With his air of danger and elusiveness it's little wonder that Lord Benedict Lucas is

Very good book - I read it in one sitting, staying up way too late to finish it. Finally free of her abusive marriage, Genevieve is ready to have some fun. But she is still wary on the inside and not quite sure what to make of Benedict's interest in her. She is definitely attracted to him and decides to go with her instincts and take him up on his offer to assist her. Benedict initially just wants to use Genevieve as a cover for his agent duties, but soon finds that he is attracted to her. He al ...more

4.25 stars I greatly enjoyed reading Some Like to Shock. This was a delightful read with an interesting heroine with a caring and honorable hero.

Upon meeting Genevieve Forster, Dowager Duchess of Woollerton, at Rupert and Pandora's wedding (Some Like it Wicked), Benedict Lucas, an agent for the Crown, decided to use her as a way to navigate the ton and accomplish his mission. However, he quickly became intrigued by Genevieve's forthright and candid demeanor, along with her innocence and beguili

Mais duas historias boas em um livro só! Adoro quando a compra compensa!!
A primeira história é um conto bem curtinho, mas bem safado, sobre um conde apaixonada há mais de anos pela esposa de seu tio. Ele sempre foi completamente apaixonado por ela, mas por ela ser sua "tia" e 4 anos mais velha do que ele, acabou sufocando seus sentimentos. Mas agora que ela é uma viúva, e já passou o período de luto, ele resolve atacar com tudo, para conseguir levá-la ao altar! E para isso ele usa todos os truqu

Although I did find it to bed a tad bit short - I found the protagonists to be like-able. I liked Genevieve because of her blatant honesty in everything. She doesnt speak in riddles or play games with Benedict. She has been mostly honest with him through out the book, which Benedict appreciates as well. Benedict is your tall, dark haired black eyed, sexy abs male protagonist. Known to the ton as Lucifer, he has a dark side mostly due to his parents mysterious murder 10 years ago. I would have li ...more

And what’s Lord Benny Luke’s Sad Sad Tale of Woe? Someone murdered his parents. Even sadder? He didn’t take that opportunity to become Batman.

Easily added into The Rant Song category, the review has everything from How I Met Your Mother references to a visit from the Bloodhound Gang. For all that and some of the worst sexytimes you'll ever read, hop on over to That's What She Read.
