A Lady's Guide to Improper Behavior (Adventurers' Club #2)
A lady should always make polite conversation . . .
Theresa Weller understands the rules of decorum, and is appalled when Colonel Bartholomew James disrupts a perfectly civilized dinner. This rude, insensitive man is the complete opposite of everything a gentleman should be--but with one searing kiss, Tess can think of no one else.
A lady should never lose her te...more
1)Strongly berate someone at dinner while you're a guest in his brother's house
2) Tell a disabled man that he must ask you to dance
3) Kiss the disabled man on the stairs of his house after you've grabbed his cane & caused him to stumble
4) Enter a bachelor's bedroom while said bachelor is in his bed
I'm a sucker for stories about wounded and emotionally tortured heroes, so I was strongly disposed to like Bartholomew. I initially thou ...more
Tolly is a man recently back from India damaged and traumatized, both physically and mentally. A native renegade group called the Thugee pretended to befriend Tolly's group. It ends in tragedy when Tolly's group and all fifteen men are ambushed, murdered, and thrown down a well. Tolly, left for dead is the only survivor and returns to Eng ...more
I just love a brooding hero that scowls and has a temper, and this book's hero is just that! He is an injured war hero who has all but given up on life until he meets the heroine of the story who gives him the will to fight for his life! She sparks his temper and ignites his passions. He makes her want to do all sorts of things a proper lady shouldn't be doing.
I really enjoyed reading about their story; it was sweet and touching and I can't wait ...more
Until she meets Colonel Bartholomew "T ...more
Overall, this was a fun read. Give me a slightly tortured and sarcastic hero any day (I say slightly tortured because I have absolutely no time for the "I'm drowning in my own misery" heroes. Please. Anyhoo, back to the point of the review.
Hero: Tolly. Love, love, love this guy. Seriously. He's in pain, he's miserable, he's a sad sack hiding out from the Ton and Society. And then he's thrust into the light of our darling, slightly tough, heroine. Sarcasm is his best friend ...more
When these two meet the sparks immediately began to fly, but they are also as mismatched as they come. ...more
Theresa is a proper lady and does everything right. She even wrote a book about it. Now she does sound dull, but trust me she is not. She meets Tolly and throws caution to the wind. She pursues him, a lady should not pursue a gentleman. She does everything she should not do, and I loved her for it. You go girl!
Tolly is one of those brooding heroes. But he has a reason. Everyone in his company was killed and he was left for dead. Now he has a leg that is practi ...more
I loved both of the characters and how Suzanne Enoch developed their relationship through the book. It didn't take long for both characters ...more
A lot of the characters muttered 'Mmm-hmm' at one time or other and I found it very distracting.
I also thought the Thuggee stuff slowed the pace of the book down. I didn't find it all that compelling nor interesting especially when Tolly brought in all these ot ...more
It's not great or amazing... No No No IT'S BEYOND that it touched me so very deeply in a way that never happened before I don't know how to describe it!!!!
"Tolly" part of me will always belong to you and "Tess" dear, sweet and strong Tess I really really wish I could at least meet you.
I don't want to put spoilers in my review so, I'm ont saying more then I'm totally in love with this book a ...more
Rarely has a hero ever been so very, very appealing before. If you read historicals for the romance, then this will definitely get you.
It takes a little time to like the heroine, but puh! to her. I didn't read this book for Tess. I read it for Colonel Bartholomew James.
So, read it. That's all.
nota bene: how can an author who wrote this book, write the utter pile of **** that is book 1 and 3 of this series? Really, how? I'm baffled.
I just re-read this one again. I love a good underdog story. This series is full of great characters with huge difficulties to overcome and lots of wonderful intrigue. The hero and heroine have a believable story arc not insta-love or contrived misunderstandings that last forever. Their relationship and the overall action of the book keep you hooked and waiting for the next turn until the very last page. Enjoy!
