Una historia sencilla que se lee rápidamente, y aunque al principio le cuesta arrancar a mi me ha gustado.

I have no idea how Not So Innocent came to be in my TBR pile, but there must be a reason, right? I was hoping to find a hidden treasure. Then, as not many of my GR friends have read this, I could share my discovery of this wonderful little gem and spread the word.

Ummm….Not so much.

This was my first book by Laura Lee Guhrke, and while I was happy enough with her writing style, the story itself was decidedly ‘meh’. Next to nothing happened for the first 200 pages – that’s more than half the book –
Surprisingly, this author was able to combine a historical setting with paranormal elements and a mystery as the underlying plot. I usually don't like this kind of hodge podge stories but this one was very well done. If only the heroine hadn't been so annoying!

The setting was end of the 19th century Britain, which I found really refreshing in historical romance. There was some technology (trains, telephones, fingerprints) mixed with some of the usual mores we see in this type of romance (genteel
$15.99 for this story? It was good, but not worth the kindle price. Better off buying the book. It's cheaper.
I previously read this story early on in my historical romance career. I've been trying to find it again ever since so I was happy to discover it on my e-reader. I liked the paranormal aspect it was written very convincingly. Michael (Mick) was an interesting character as well as being a strong, masculine guy. Sophie was a consistent character, I found myself wanting to champion her. Michael took care of that for me luckily. The mystery was interesting also, with an intense climax. Be ready to w ...more
Emily Thompson
Another older gem by Laura Lee Guhrke; this one historically accurate to a T. The female protagonist has a sort of sixth sense (far more pleasant than the one described in the Bruce Willis film) and can tell what's going to happen in the future. Interestingly, this rings true of the time period, and all its craze involving the rise of Christian mysticism around the turn of the century. Guhrke even goes so far as to reference the "kairos" or the right and proper moment for things. Would recommend ...more
Lady Grey
This story takes place in London in 1897; a nice change from the usual Regency romances. I enjoyed the storyline and the characters and the suspense kept me curious as to what was going to happen. There was a creepy murder storyline but the main character works for Scotland Yard so I suppose that was to be expected. Often as I read, however, I kept thinking that the dialogue sounded like something you would hear today as opposed to what you'd hear in London a century ago. It's been a while since ...more
I liked this book okay. It wasn't one of her best but if you ignore some obvious things it still is a great romance. I love her character building no matter what book it is I fall in love with the characters! So this book had the paranormal twist with a woman who foretells the future via visions. Nothing new there but the Regency part with a police officer (male) falling in love a lady above his station is a nice switch!
The characters and writing were ok, my main problem was the plot, it was silly and not very interesting.
The one thing this book was going for it is the killer, I never knew who he was until the very end... but that probably is because it didn't make much sense.
It felt like reading a story a 12 year old would write. The the writing was so simple and the plot so predictable I'm surprised I finished it. Laura Lee Guhrke can write much better than this.
No está a la altura de Un lugar para Connor y Amor prohibido, pero es entretenido y en una tarde te lo ventilas.
This was an excellent story, even though no real romance until 3/4 thru. Mick is a sexy, serious hero.
