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.
If you enjoyed Becoming Lady Amherst, check out Lady Katherine's Comeuppance and Lady Katherine's Conundrum (Lady Katherine's Comeuppance), both regency spanking romances written by the same author.(less)

The characters were so real I felt like they were sitting right next to me as I read this book. I also think a lot of married couples could relate to Michael and Sophie and their initial communication problems, and I’ve recommended this book to many friends. Aching to Submit is a hot, and at times intense, emotional ride with a wonderful conclusion that left me smiling and sighing with satisfaction.(less)

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. (less)

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.
