It begins with the heroine, Sarah, embroiled in a scandal that results in her marriage to Lord Amherst. Sarah is an American and is totally out of her element in English society, but Lord Amherst is captivated by her outspokenness and shocks her by choosing to marry her instead of watching her be shipped back to America due to the scandal. The chemistry between them sizzles and doesn't burn out after their marriage either. The sex scenes were hot and the spankings quite yummy. Just when all seems like it might work out for the unlikely match, Sarah tells a lie that she fears will cause another scandal. The conclusion packed a lot of emotion, but it was humorous too, thanks to the lively characters Ms. Jones crafted, and I was left satisfied and eager to read this author's next book.

Wow, what a great book! Held for Ransom is a well-written historical romance with great characters, spanking, a bit of naughtiness, and some paranormaWow, what a great book! Held for Ransom is a well-written historical romance with great characters, spanking, a bit of naughtiness, and some paranormal elements. I loved it and read it all in one sitting. Seriously, clear your calendar once you start this book, because you won’t want to put it down!
I adored the hero and really felt for him as he worried about the fate of his sister and others in his village. He’s met his match in Princess Arianna though, and the tension between these two just sizzles. I also enjoyed the paranormal (magic) elements of this book and how they were woven into the plot. My heart was aching for Crow and Arianna during their separation and then the way they were thrown back together, and I’m pretty sure I broke a personal record for speed reading while trying to get to the end to make sure these two got their happy ending.
I highly recommend Held for Ransom to lovers of historical and spanking romances. ...more

I loved iI have always enjoyed Celeste Jones’ contemporary spanking romance stories, so I was very excited to get my hands on her first regency book. I loved it! The heroine, an English lady, suddenly comes under the authority of her husband’s distant cousin, Thomas, who happens to be a barbaric American. Katherine’s future depends on Thomas, and he arrives in London not quite understanding his new position, and not expecting to have to deal with his cousin’s widow. They pair clash immediately, but at the same time sparks fly. To Lady Katherine’s dismay, she discovers Thomas won’t put up with bad behavior, and he soon spanks her for trying to manipulate her way into his good graces.
I loved the main characters and their interactions with one another, and of course the spanking and the sex scenes were hot. I especially loved how Thomas handled the scandal at the end of the book. He was a great hero and exactly what Katherine needed in her life. Lady Katherine’s Comeuppance is a well-written regency romance with plenty of tension, humor, a naughty scandal, disciplinary spanking, and sensual scenes sure to keep you reading until the last page. ...more
Wow, what a great book! I read it in one day and I honestly can’t wait for Renee Rose to write another spanking regency novel. The Westerfield AffairWow, what a great book! I read it in one day and I honestly can’t wait for Renee Rose to write another spanking regency novel. The Westerfield Affair was well written, sexy, and tugged at my heart strings again and again. I loved the heroine, Kitty. She was a lively character and knew just how to deal with a man so reserved as Lord Westerfield. They were a perfect match, despite being complete opposites in every sense of the word, and even though he went about securing her as his wife all wrong, causing her to be angry with him for quite some time. They spend some time struggling to understand one another, and Kitty earns herself plenty of spankings at Lord Westerfield's hands, but he administers them lovingly. The Westerfield Affair by Renee Rose was a wonderful spanking regency novel with great characters, plenty of conflict, and steamy sex scenes that had me turning the pages....more

I'll admit I had some reservations going into it because of the whole prostitution thing. I kept thinking "how am I possibly going to like this if the heroine sleeps with other men for money, while the hero is standing by?" For me, it went back to the rule for romance books that the hero and heroine aren't supposed to sleep with anyone but each other in the book. But Renee Rose made it work, quite wonderfully, actually. Cora and Daddy Diggs are very likeable characters, and the pain that they both have suffered in the past lead them on a journey to one another that is sexy and sweet. The Devil of Whiskey Row is definitely one of my favorite spanking romances of all time. Fans of erotic romances, spanking stories, and historical/western romances won’t want to miss this book!...more
Pleasing the Colonel was a well-written and heartwarming regency novella that grabbed me from the first chapter. Actually, after I read the first chapPleasing the Colonel was a well-written and heartwarming regency novella that grabbed me from the first chapter. Actually, after I read the first chapter available online, I immediately went to Amazon to download the book and keep reading. I enjoy regency romances, so I was excited to read one with spankings. I loved it and I hope Renee Rose plans to write more books set in this time period. Amanda and Charles have great chemistry. I admire how Amanda strives to overcome the obstacles in life after her father dies, and I thought it was touching each time Charles helped her – like by making it easier for her to visit her sick mother and securing her belongings from her uncle. These little things meant the world to Amanda and showed that despite how indifferent he could seem, Charles was a man of good character. The relationship that slowly develops between them is beautiful, though at times rocky, and she does end up over his knee (or bent over his desk) a few times throughout the novel. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good spanking romance, especially fans of historical fiction. Well done! ...more

While I wouldn't classify this book as any kind of romance, it was off-the-charts HOT and appealed to my dark side with the non-consent situations. Keep in mind there are only a few instances with the hero treating the heroine tenderly...okay maybe like two or three and for no more than a few seconds at a time. The story gets brutal in many places and Edward often punishes Lucy in front of his servants and even asks them to assist. I'm not usually into stories that take it this far, but for some reason this story worked for me. Maybe it was the details and the dialog during these scenes, I'm not sure, but in any case I loved this book and plan to read more from this author....more

The characters were memorable, the plot was engaging, and the historical details were amazing. The heroine, Kate, is a strong and resourceful young woman whose future is threatened by a scheming uncle who desires her family fortune. She seeks protection from her new guardian, Quinn, and is immediately conflicted by the attraction between them. Quinn tries to think of her as a child, as his child, but it’s hard when all he can think about is kissing her. I was on the edge of my seat waiting for their next encounter. When the danger threatening Kate escalates and the tension between her and Quinn becomes unbearable, the book became so intense I couldn’t put it down! ...more

Gretchen's life seems to be falling apart. Soon after she buries her husband, the brother she didn't know he had (Kane) shows up with documents proving he owns everything she thought was now hers - including having custody of her son. Of course, Kane's solution is that they immediately get married. She agrees because she fears losing her son, even though she knows nothing of this mysterious and stern man she must now call husband. Kane is everything Gretchen's first husband wasn't and she finds out the hard way that he expects to be obeyed in all things. Despite her initial dislike for him she can't help but be extremely attracted to him. The mystery begins when Gretchen starts to suspect Kane really isn't her late husband's brother and deepens after they move to the city. If you like a bit of mystery with your spanking romance novels, give this one a try. ...more

The hero kidnaps the heroine and keeps her for himself in his quarters**spoiler alert** What's not to love about a handsome, dominant pirate captain? The hero kidnaps the heroine and keeps her for himself in his quarters on his ship. BDSM sexiness ensues, and he even comes to care about her along the way. When he thinks she might die, he becomes completely distraught and remains by her side. Even though this is one of Faulkner's harsher tales due to the kidnapping and dubious consent, there is a nice HEA if you wait for it. Overall, I really enjoyed this one. And it’s short enough to get through in one evening. ...more

It's short and sweet, and I got my Viking romance fix in one sitting. I really liked the heroine, Ainslin, and Torsten was a hero absolutely to die for. I'll admit I was expecting more of a conflict to occur with Sigrid (Ainslin's creepy former neighbor who wanted her hand before the king ordered her to marry Torsten), but the storyline was still interesting enough to hold my attention. All of Ainslin's fears about what Torsten would do when he discovered her secret were washed away after their first night together. Even when she told him she doubted she could bear him an heir, he still loved her and wanted no other wife. And the sex scenes between Ainslin and Torsten were hot, especially the night she lost her virginity to him. I definitely plan to read more by this author!...more

This historical romance was written in the first person from Felicia’s POV, but the absence of Domenico’s POV only adds to the tension and mystery in the book. It’s definitely a bodice ripper, complete with a possessive (and downright psychotic) hero, a virgin heroine who is forced to be the hero’s mistress, rape, and two people who are too proud to admit they love each other. I liked Felicia the whole way through the story. My heart broke for her each time she had to hide her love from Domenico when he seemingly flaunted his indifference around her. Only later do we discover his motives for some of his more outrageous actions (like showing her paintings of his prospective wives and asking her which one she liked best) were simply to make her jealous. He is semi-redeemed at the end of the book, but not completely. Felicia realizes that even though she loves him, he’ll always be the harsh man who thinks nothing of ordering another man’s death or torture. The conclusion is fantastic because the length Domenico goes to in order to secure Felicia as his wife is finally revealed. ...more

I’m so glad I read this book, it was great! The story’s heroine, Marguerite, is naïve at times, but she’s also very strong and resourceful. The hero, Roland, is so enigmatic that I’ll admit I couldn’t put the book down because I was constantly on edge about his next encounter with Marguerite. Marguerite knows little about Roland, save that he’s known for his temper and many believe he killed his own brother, but if she doesn’t marry him, she’ll be forced to marry another man who she truly despises. As Marguerite adjusts to life as Roland’s wife, she tries to unravel the mystery surrounding his mother’s death, his brother’s death, her father’s treason, Roland’s ex-fiancé, and why more than one servant has told her “you’re not the mistress here.” To further complicate her life, she finds herself falling in love with Roland, who seems indifferent to her feelings most of the time.
Even though I usually don’t like books written in the first person, I loved watching the story unfold through Marguerite’s eyes. There was a definite darkness to this novel because of the mysteries surrounding Marguerite as well as her despair over Roland’s feelings for her, but her questions are answered at the end and she learns the truth about Roland and his ex-fiancé.

Personally, I think this was a nice collection of short stories. The character development was excellent and the plots were not cheesy in the least.

But considering the horrible chilThis novel started out a little rough for me because I was a taken aback by Rowland's inital treatment of Bridgette. But considering the horrible childhood Rowland had, it was a wonder he didn't behave even worse than he did. Really, it was a wonder he didn't just leave Bridgette to be stoned to death by her aunt at the beginning. Bridgette challenged Rowland from the start and tried several times to escape, but he wss never as brutal with her as I expected him to be in these instances. Rowland, who never before thought he'd desire marriage or having just one woman, becomes so attached to Bridgette that he can't imagine letting her go. This blinds him to the fact that she is actually a lady as she claims - instead of a servant. In fact, it takes a whole army to show up as his fief to believe she's the lady she's been claiming to be all along. Bridgette is able to forgive him for the pain he's caused her, over and over again. She is troubled by the truth of his childhood and aches for the little boy who knew no love. She even cares enough to help him discover his true identity and force him to face it down. When they are separated for months right before the conclusion, it seems that too much time has passed for Bridgette to forgive Rowland's absence. But Rowland risks imprisionment by Bridgette's brother to finally come after her a second time. Her anger towards him is so strong, she lies and says she feels nothing for him - but with the help of her brother she realizes she still loves him. The end of this novel is actually very beautiful....more
