Confessions of a Little Black Gown
And in an instant, Thalia Langley knew the man before her was no saint. He might claim to be the Duke of Hollindrake's unassuming country cousin, but no man that handsome, that arresting, could be anything but . . . well, he simply must be an unrepentant rogue. His cat-like grace and power leave Tally shivering in her slippers at the notio ...more
1. WHY WAS ANYONE EVEN TRYING TO SAVE DASH HE SEEMED LIKE AN ASSHOLE?
2. So as much as I loved the fact that Tally was On her Game ...more
In the very beginning, the book didn't seem anything out of the ordinary [for a historial romance:] but at about chapter 3, it really started to come to life. Tally (Thalia Langley) was such a fun, flirty character who was anything but or ...more
These just keep getting sillier!
I liked Thalia, she was strong, and she knew what she wanted, a wicked rake, pirate or perhaps a spy. So when the man she spies in the shadows actually is a vicar she is ...more
Little Black Gown, Spy/Vicar, playwriting heroines, pirate jailbreaks, secret female spy order, and such. Too bad it came together in a boring inane mush. Ugh.
Honestly, I don't really care about Tally or Larken, especially when they aren't all that admirable and don't have any depth. Boyle tries to give them life but they fall flat.
Also, I'm assuming the sister Felicity and the Duke were the H/H of a previous book, but Felicity ca ...more
Upon hearing the voice of a mysterious stranger in her brother-in-law’s study, Thalia Langley thinks she just might have met her destiny…or not. How could the duke’s bumbling, poorly-dressed vicar of a cousin be the man of her dreams? From the moment she meets the awkward Milo Ryder, Tally knows there must be more to him than meets the eye. And when a mysterious little black gown lands in her lap, Tally knows just ho ...more
With twists and turns, secrets, spies and intrigue this one will keep you on your toes and interested throughout it all.
In the interest of not ruining the book for ...more
I really adored the storlyine, the plot. It was refreshing to read in a historical romance, and I was eagerly wanting to know if Thali and Pippin really were the culprits of breaking out L ...more
The mystery, well not really a mystery...I found it a little tedious at times, and the reason for it was I was expecting more of Pippin and Dash in the book. I really enjoy those two, and I cannot wait to get my hands ...more

I enjoyed this book, for the most part. The characters were fun to follow and easy to like. However, some of the ending pages felt forced and unnecessary. In addition, some aspects of the plot seemed underdeveloped, so I found myself backtracking to see if I missed ...more
Only shade is cast by Pippin and Dashwell's tragic story which made it hard for me to be super happy about the characters here, but then again like hero said they wouldn't have spun their story without that happening...
I am liking these series for entirely different reasons than other series: some dealw ith deep emotions, some with ce ...more
Thalia Langley, better known as Tally, is up to no good. She's assisting her cousin, Pippa, in her tempestuous romance with Dashwell. They have a plan...
Then, Lord Larken, disguised as a vicar appears. Tally sees through his masquerade quickly, but he's in search o ...more
Larken and Tally made a great couple. They were both very skilled at espionage and just plain ...more
The story is really sweet and I love the turnout, for most of the characters. Though the Pippin part makes me a bit sad.
I think that Tally is an amazing girl! She's just so lively and cute and gifted. Mr. Larken is a very good con artist, and oh, how I love him for it! He's like the most epic dude ever!
This story is just great, and I really, truly think that people should read this book, if not for th ...more
