After the disaster that was A Gentleman Always Remembers, I was eager to get to a book I knew I would love. And I did know I would love this book. From the beginning of this series, I knew Oliver and Vivian's book would be my favorite of the series. And it totally was. An Affair Without End was entertaining, exciting, intriguing, and romantic. Plus, it had just the perfect amount of mystery and intrigue to keep me interested in the shady crimes and subsequent investigation by Oliver and Vivian.

After having read many historical romances within the past three years, I have learned that almost all of the books go into the same mold. Girl is innocent and unusually beautiful, she falls in love with a "rake" (who really isn't a rake, or was years ago), and no one tries to stop her, and they have sex all the time and the end.

This story did not fit that mold, at all.

The story was about a crazy girl named Vivian who ends up dragging this guy named Oliver on one of her wild adventures... which

An Affair Without End is the latest in Candace Camp's Willowmere series. The main characters are the feisty and unconventional daughter of a duke, Vivian Carlyle; Vivian's brother Gregory, the bookish and reclusive fifth marquis of Seyre; four American sisters who are cousins to Lord Steweksbery - particularly of interest is the least conventional of the four, Camellia; Lord Oliver Steweksbery whose family dates back to the 11th century and is always circumspect, proper, and occasionally fusty. ...more

Marred a little by a scene of dubious consent and my dissatisfaction with the very last social conflict, but otherwise I can't think of anything else I didn't enjoy. Both leads were wonderfully vibrant and their flirting was the greatest. Laugh out loud and heartwarming all at once. Their sexcapades were the hottest of the series. The mystery was decent and provided a good framework, as did the supporting secondary romances. All around a much enjoyed book.

I also really LOVED the rescue scene at

This is the last book in the Willowmere Series. It was OK but I found myself putting it down because it did not hold my interest like the previous two. It has two HEA stories, one was Vivian and Oliver and the other was the last Bascombe sister.

I so loved this novel. I could not put it down, and I was glad to have the characters involved be the focus of the story. The history between the main couple played well into their changing relationship and all of the issues inherent. The secondary couple involved my favourite Bascombe sister, Camellia, and her unfashionable antics. I actually fell for everyone in these two pairs just a little bit as the book went on. Add in the interesting mystery in the background, and while I was part right a ...more

A great addition to the Willomere series and I've been waiting for this one since Lady Vivian showed up in the first book. I knew her book was going to be explosive, exciting and steamy and I was right. I'm so glad that I was exposed to Camp's books through the GR's giveaway section, otherwise I might never have read her books.

Lady Vivian loves going to parties and socializing and is excited to be helping out Lily and Camellia with their first Season. While helping the two get ready, Vivian disc

It has been far too long since I last read a romance by Candace Camp - if only because I had overdosed on the genre and pretty much fell out of love, so to speak. An Affair Without End had sounded too good to resist, and let me say that I am now staring at my copy longingly because a re-read seems to also be hard to resist!

Compared to Francesca from The Courtship Wager (Matchmakers series), Vivian will certainly match Francesca in her feisty zest for the ton and perhaps even kick it up a notch a

I think this is the best of the Willomere trilogy. The first three quarters of the book were very entertaining due to the wonderful chemistry between the main characters, Vivian and Oliver and Camellia and Gregory. The banter between Vivian and Oliver was a joy to read, funny and charming. The budding romance between the two secondary characters, was sweetly done, I really cheered for them and toward the end of the book, I cared more about the secondary characters getting together than the main ...more

I was so excited to read about Oliver and Vivian, and I was not disappointed. I love Vivian's spunk, and how it contrasts to Oliver's serious, stoic nature. I loved seeing her bring out his fun side and more spontaneous side.

I was also really interested in Camellia and Vivian's bother (I can't think of his name) almost as much as I enjoyed the main love story. I love how each of Candace's books had a minor love story going on as a side story.

Also, I didn't really realize until the end of the ser

This is a charming novel, sweet and funny. I would have liked to jump into the pages and kiss Oliver.
This tale is lots of fun and has many exciting twists.
A must read.

If you are looking for some man-action but don't want to get married and you do like being apart of society, what do you do?
Obviously. You have a secret affair with someone you trust!
This is a story about a strong woman that plays the society game (mostly) within the rules, but if she wasn't born into a rich titled family, she would have been exiled years before from 'ton' society.
Ahhh... double standards abound but are subtly added into the plot with well written prose.

I wished I could have read the first two books that went with this. I started reading this book yesterday and finished it today. Love the character Oliver and thought that the character Vivian was the one to bring Oliver out of his stuffiness ways, delightful book that will keep you entertained from the first page to the last and I will have to say that Dora Parkington got treated exactly the way she should have, never could stand those uppity types.

Finally, I find a book I loved without any reservations!! I loved everything about this book!! This is the 3rd book in this series, so we had already gotten to know this couple and the tension between them!! Oliver was the perfect uptight, controlled, duty oriented peer and Lydia was free-spiritied and unconventional. I was completely surprised at the villain's identity!!! I, of course, adored the ending!! I wanted this book to just go on and on!!!
The romantic leads were really well written..some mystery..not very interesting
I was a little disappointed in this one, because I really liked the character of Vivian and I didn't feel like it kept the character from the earlier books, but instead introduced a new one. That said, I enjoyed seeing the rest of the cast of characters played through, and I admit i did enjoy meeting the infamous Miss Kitty, and wished there had been more of her in the tale.

nice closing..

when Candace first introduce Gregory i was like, "oh no.. leave him alone, he's mine. Dont put him together with Camelia.." and it was all coming true.. Thou they suit each other but i want Gregory for my self.. Too bad..

Oliver and Vivian, i already guess they would end up together. perfect pair. life will never boring for both of them..

It took a while to get into this book, but as the story goes on it got better. I liked the opposite personalities of the two main characters. It wasn't the best book of the series, but had a interesting story line. I also liked the side story, but would have liked to see a little more of that. All in all a great book.
:) como não podia deixar de ser a historia é engraçada ou não fosse a CC =D
sem pretensões mas acaba por envolver e criar ambiente.
os personagens são interessantes e com alguma irreverencia o que provoca em algumas "cenas" um sorriso nos lábios!

uma história que se lê muito bem.

Took too long to get into and even then, I felt disengaged from the story. I might try again when I'm desperate for something to read. It's a standard regency & I believe my review of it is harsh, but lately I've been reading great regencies, so that's why.

I really want to like Candace Camp. I do. I had seen one of her books on sale and almost got it. But it was hard to read this book as I kept starting other books. Story was okay. it didn't grab me as i kept getting distracted.

Interesting twist on the London marriage market. Lord Oliver has American cousins to launch and Lady Vivian will assist in this endeavor.
Along the way there is robbery, murder, family interference and assistance, and love.
