Esta história de a autora ainda não ter revelado aonde estão as jóias esta a deixar me com nérvos. Ainda não foi desta .. A parte disso gostei bastante do romance do eberlin e da ahswood.

Al contrario que el anterior y primer libro de ésta serie, al que sólo puedo calificar como "chapucero", Julia London nos ha regalado con "La venganza de Lord Eberlin" uno de sus buenos libros. Y es que ésta mujer tiene libros que sí, y libros que no.

Si debo empezar con lo que menos me ha gustado, diría que son las licencias, en las que sigue haciendo hincapié, sobre la legitimidad de la herencia nobiliaria de los protagonistas. La de Lily ya la expliqué en la review del anterior libro, y no la

Full Review:

Não sou muito fã de livros sobre vingança, mesmo que estes acabem por acabar com essa mesma vingança ao juntar o casal. Neste caso, como podem ver pela sinopse, Tobin acredita que a culpa da morte do seu pai tem tudo a ver com Lily Boudine que, com cerca de 8 anos, disse ter visto o pai de Tobin na noite em que as jóias de Ashwood foram dadas como roubadas.

Esta foi a minha estreia com a escritora Julia London. Apesar de ser já o segundo livro da série, a autora deu-me todas as informações passadas no primeiro livro, pelo que não tive qualquer dificuldade em acompanhar a trama.

Toda a história em torno da vingança de lorde Eberlin deixou-me desapontada, gostei da protagonista feminina que era de força Lady Ashwood e os seus esquemas mas achei o Tobin fraco de caráter e de espírito e aquele final foi demasiado abrupto para mim...

It's actually a 3,75

This book gave me mixed feelings. I was in dispair to find out if I'm still able to start and finish a book, so I bought it out of impulse at the airport. The beginning was slow and I didn't know what to expect. I've read so many similar books... But then it got better. The characters became deeper and they kept their humanity. You've read the synopsis: Lily testified that she'd seen Tobin's father leaving the manor in the same night that the precious jewels disappeared

Another great read from Julia London, the second book in the Secrets of Hadley Green series does not disappoint. "The Revenge of Lord Eberlin" picks up shortly after Miss Lily Boudine has returned from Europe to settle into her newly inherited title of Lady Ashwood. She finds a scandal in the making as her cousin, Kiera, has pretended to be Lily in an effort to try saving the broken estate. The estate is sinking fast, with tenants leaving for greener pastures and the money running out quickly. " ...more

While only a child, Lily Boudine testified that she saw Tobin Scott’s father, the wood carver, galloping away from the Ashwood estate. At about the same time, the Ashwood jewels also disappeared and the people of Hadley Green made the obvious connection. Tobin’s father was hanged as a thief and his family reviled. Death claimed the lives of some of his family and cast Tobin’s sister, Charity, into a compromising situation. Tobin struggled to survive, finally finding his way to riches on the high ...more

Tobin's father was hanged for a crime he didn't commit -- the theft of some precious jewels -- largely based on the testimony of eight-year-old Lily, who saw the man riding away from the estate that fateful night. Fifteen years later, Tobin has returned as a wealthy and titled man with a grudge.

I liked the setup for this book. There was real tension between these two, because Tobin is understandably angry, and Lily is in real trouble as a result. Gradually, he starts to see how an 8-year-old mi

Julia London's new book "The Revenge of Lord Eberlin" is totally awesome! I loved the storyline of an angry, vengeful man who will stop at nothing to destroy the lives of anyone who gets in his way. Tobin Scot is a man on a mission who sets out to get his due, even if his target is the lovely and desirable Lily Boudine. Tobin feels that revenge is the only way to go. You will feel Tobin's pain in loosing his family and the panic that overwhelms him at times. You will see a woman who feels his pa ...more

Um romance arrebatador entre duas pessoas que se conheceram em criança e formaram um laço forte... que se reencontram muitos anos e desilusões depois.

Na cabeça de Lorde Eberlin só a vingança e a destruição de Lily e de tudo o que esta tem faz sentido. Mas, à medida que se aproxima dela, descobre que quer, cada vez mais, protegê-la. Chegam-lhe então fragmentos de memória da infância, com a inocência que há muito perdeu, e a pouco e pouco o seu coração de trevas começa a ter algumas rachadelas por

A very touching story. Lord Eberlin, aka Tobin Scott, is out for revenge against Lily Boudine, now Countess of Ashwood. When she was 8 years old, her testimony sent his father to the gallows. He has spent the last 15 years building his wealth and plotting revenge.

Of course, his hardened heart is thawed by her. They fall in love but it isn't easy in coming. They fight it every stop of the way which makes it even sweeter in the end.

This is book 2 of 3 and, once again, Julia London has created comp

This was the first book I've read by Julia. It was slow at first and I put it down for a few days but then I came back and it really was a pleasant read. I loved the feisty Lily and how she challenged Tobin at every turn. I didn't understand why he was putting himself through all this pain and misery when clearly he always loved her. Anyway I hated how the story just ended abruptly but I'm looking forward to the story of the true heir of Ashwood. I also need to read the previous books in this se ...more

I enjoyed this fast-paced and unexpected story involving one-upmanship and seduction. Tension builds between Lily who recently inherited a title and a crumbling estate and Tobin who seeks revenge against her for the death of his father. He finds no shortage of creative ways to make her suffer and Lily rises to the challenge. London ratchets up the intensity by raising the stakes at every turn while Lily and Tobin each struggle to figure out what they desire most. Throw in a mystery involving mis ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The thing that appealed to me was the evolution of the relationship. Tobin's feeling towards Lily were multi-layered. Once he got past some of the layers, he worried about his past effecting Lily, whereas Lily was already a piranha due to her cousin's actions in the first book. Lily's layers grew with the story due to her discovering the truth about her childhood memories. With each of these layers, we eventually saw the two of them form into a couple united again ...more

Una historia bien construida en base a unos personajes interesantes. El ritmo es pausado, imagino que para reflejar la habitual calma de la vida en una pequeña localidad, y quizá le sobran algunas páginas para mi gusto, pero aún así, la novela me ha gustado mucho. Una buena continuación de "El año que nos amamos peligrosamente".

Solid with well-developed characters. Tobin can't wait to exact his revenge on Lily and thwarts her every move. In the end, Lily may just get him to change his mind about her and look upon her with different eyes. This is worth reading if you enjoy historical romances. I haven't picked one up in a while, so I'm changing up my routine.

Com o apoio do grupo editorial Leya chegou aqui ao blogue o segundo exemplar da série Hadley Green. Não conhecia esta série, pelo que acabei por iniciar a leitura de “A Vingança de Lorde Eberlin” sem ler o seu antecessor.

Sendo o romance um dos meus géneros de eleição, acabo por me tornar de certa forma mais exigente cada vez que leio um. Já sabemos que um romance será sempre um romance e, por isso, gosto de encontrar em cada livro que leio algo novo, algo que motive a leitura para além do cerne

Having read the previous two books in this series, I was excited to return back to Hadley Glenn and the mystery of the missing necklace.

We pick shortly where the last book leaves off and our introduction to Lily Boudine. I was a bit disappointed in Lily. She's a selfish creature whom steps into the mess she jointly made with her cousin, but unable to understand how her inability to take control over her own life led to this problem. She is a reactionary character who needs someone else to do som

This second installment of the Hadley Green series was better than the first in some ways, although it didn't have the same amount of character growth as its predecessor.

Lily and Tobin each had unstable childhoods, and each suffered trauma. Having actually witnessed his fathers execution, Tobin by far has seen more of life and has legitimate reasons to be bitter. He experiences the most growth of any character in this book, having to overcome his desire for revenge and see the events of 15 year
Lord Eberlin's revenge unfolds wonderfully so that by the end you're left wanting more and more and more. I thought Tobin's story was touching and you wanted to give him a big old hug at the end.

Once again, Julia London leaves you desperate to find out what crazy thing will happen next in Hadley Green. How does she do that? She's not a NYT bestselling author for nothing.

The repercussions of Keira's actions in The Year of Living Scandalously have more or less been resolved and now Lily's defectio
OK, I looked forward to this one coming out so I could read the conclusion to what I assumed would be a trilogy, only to discover that there is yet another story in the series. Fortunately, that one's also out already (reading now).

Anyway, so this one begins where the last one left off, with a dark and vengeful Tobin Scott (a/k/a Lord Eberlin--long story) methodically setting out to ruin Lily Boudine, who at eight years old, testified that she saw his father ride away from her uncle's estate ju

Tiro un poco por lo bajo en la puntuación, pero la novela me ha gustado bastante. No quiero pasarme porque a lo mejor más adelante no me parece para tanto, pero como venía con una mala experiencia de la autora y la leí con bajas expectativas, creo que eso me puede afectar.

Realmente no esperaba leer nada más de Julia London, ya que el otro libro suyo que leí me decepcionó muchísimo, no me gustó ni me interesó. La venganza de Lord Eberlin no es lo más original y tiene sus fallos, pero logró enganc

I tried to like the heroine, but every now and then she would say somethibg so vapid, or act so ignorantly that I could not help but think she, along with the other women in the book, was plain stupid at times and too naive to be considered cute.
Another issue I had was how the leading characters' romance either seemed forced or simply there. It felt like so much more could have been done with the characters past connection, or at least a more explosive confrontation between Lily and Charity.
