Lady Imaculata Anne Egremont has appeared in the scandalous pages of the "London List" often enough. The reading public is so bored with her nonsense, she couldn't make news now unless she took a vow of chastity. But behind her naughty hijinks is a terrible fear. It's time the List helped her. With a quick scan through its job postings and a few whacks at her ridiculous na ...more

My first Maggie Robinson read. Wow. What a little gem this is. Was really impressed with the writing quality and attention to detail. Superb! Very well-rounded flawed characters. And very realistic portrayal of alcohol addiction and the PTSD dealings of a sexually abused victim. Very real, the author captured every nuance on the page beautifully. So much so that I wanted to take the hero and heroine and hug them to my chest. Really well done.

I'd definitely recommend this to HR fans, Lisa Kleyp

A fairly well done regency with dashes of humor, sweetness and yes, some icky business.

Starts out fine, ends as a ridiculous mess.

The only other person to sell more copies of The London List than Baron Benton Craig is Lady Imaculata Anne Egremont. But while the baron had never wanted to be the subject of such publicity, Lady Imaculata had planned out all of her wild schemes and crazy antics on purpose -- to escape her father. As the stunts get more reckless and as L

This is the third and final book, following Lord Gray’s List and Captain Courant’s Countess, in Maggie Robinson’s series featuring a London tabloid. Lady Anne’s Lover reveals Robinson’s knack for combining humor and heat with a heart-stirring tale. I loved Anne from the opening sentence. Despite the real horror of her situation, she displays ingenuity, strength, and courage and maintains a sense of compassion for her fellow human beings. Her bumbling attempts at housekeeping are funny, but it sa ...more

What a terrific ending to this series. I'll be honest, I'm sad that this series is ending. It was one of my favorites from the last year. I so enjoy the way Maggie Robinson tells a story. She writes about some serious matters while keeping me entertained as a reader. I easily fell in love with the flawed characters of Lady Anne and Major Gareth. I must be honest-I wasn't a big fan of 'Lady Anne' in the other London List stories, but came to love her as her own story was revealed. What makes the ...more

A steamy, enjoyable read. Both main characters were believable and interesting. The minor characters could have been more fleshed out, especially the one who was eventually unmasked as the villain. I really didn't get that there was any motivation behind the actions until the explanation at the end.

I read this as an ebook that I received from NetGalley in return for my honest review.

this review was originally published at Dear Author

Dear Ms. Robinson:

Lady Anne's Lover is the first of your books I've read. It's the third in your London List series but works fine as a stand-alone read. I enjoyed reading it although it left me a bit bemused. The mood of your book is light and humorous and yet your hero struggles with alcoholism, your heroine is on the run from her father who has been molesting her, a woman in the book has been raped and viciously murdered, and the villain
1.5 stars

Oh my, I made it through! I never thought I would manage that. The premisse was nice, but it was just about sex and lust. The characters weren't likeable either and I disliked the explicit language. I'm quite sure the hero used words like "cunny" and "cunt". I can live with cock (I got used to it... still hate it in German) but "cunt" is a definite no-go for me (because I think of the German equivalent and that word screams "porn" very loudly). So yeah, not my type of historical romance

I really, really enjoyed this book, even though it includes a few tropes that I generally despise. They were tropes done well, in my opinion. I *loved* that the book took place in Wales, as opposed to your typical London/Hampshire/etc. I read another review that expressed concern at the light handling of some pretty serious (extremely serious) subject matter in the book, but honestly, I felt that was handled relatively well. I'm glad the book wasn't horribly dark and angsty, as it could have bee ...more

The London List is an intriguing series with interesting characters that are thrown together by the newspaper The London List. This is the third in the series and I believe it is my favorite.

Lady Imaculata Egremont is an Earl’s daughter in hiding. With the help of her friend, Evangeline and The London List, she has found a place safe from her father’s spies. Everyone thought her father was a saint, however since her mother died, he has tried to sexually assault her and when he fails she is stil

All right everyone, I just finished the last book in The London List books. I must say that I that I enjoyed Lady Anne's Lover by Maggie Robinson. Now if you have read the first book in The London List books you would remember Lady Imaculata Anne Egremont. I mean her reputation is notorious. However, there is a reason for all her antics, which you got a glimpse of the reason in Lord Gray's List. So, sometime time in the book you see Lady Imaculata leaving London and hea

Lady Anne's Lover is the third and final book in the London List series. Characters from the previous books briefly appear in this one, but it will work as a stand-alone. The story has many dimensions including murder, sexual abuse, loss of a limb, alcoholism, and mystery. In spite of all of these issues it is a well written, straight forward romance that works on many levels.

Nineteen year old Lady Imaculata Anne Egremont has run away from her abusive father and plans to work as a housekeeper un

With a pair of decidedly mis-matched lovers and a dark secret to put them in danger, this light-hearted historical romance mixes mystery and screwball comedy into an entertaining read.

To keep her nasty father from marrying her off to some equally lascivious old lord, Lady Imaculata Anne Egremont has done her best to ruin her own reputation, keeping the London scandal sheets busy with her wild adventures. But even scandal only goes so far in keeping determined fortune hunters at bay. With an ass

Please know that the author sent me an ARC of Lady Anne's Lover in exchange for an honest review.

Lady Imaculata Egremont was an earl's daughter and was raised as a lady. However, she had not behaved as one lately for a good reason. Her Mom had passed away and the earl, her father, lusted unnaturally for Imaculata. There had been too many close calls... and she had tried to escape from him by tarnishing her reputation but that hadn't worked. So... now she was going to run away from home and masqu

Lady Imaculata Egremont is a valuable commodity to The London List. Her scandals are notorious, yet they make for great reading (and great profit). When Imaculata is in danger, she turns to Evangeline Ramsey, who turns Imaculata into Anne Mont.

Anne arrives in Wales with very little property and even less knowledge about how to be a housekeeper. Major Ripton-Jones, however, is struggling also. He's literally drowning in filth and alcohol. Anne convinces him of her real identity, and they agree to

I really liked this book. I liked that our Hero character started out as a putz. He was wallowing in self pity and drinking himself to an early grave. Of course considering what he had gone through few could blame him. I liked that our Heroin was strong but not overbearing. She had her own issues she was dealing with and together they helped each other become even stronger. This was a very sweet (and rather steamy) read. I've added the rest of the London List series to my want to read shelf. If ...more

After fending off her father's immoral touches and more, Immaculata disappears into Wales. An inept housekeeper to a drunken estate owner, hides her well until Gareth notices that she is young, can't cook and is red-haired. "Anne" after hearing of his destitution proposes marriage-he gets her money, and she is protected from her father. While I liked the story, the age difference was a little off-putting and after a really great story, the ending seemed rushed.
received free from NetGalley for an honest review

Enjoyed it. I've read one other book by Maggie Robinson and knew she wouldn't be boring. This is the final book in the trilogy and I sure didn't see that person as the murderer. Nice job. Now I need to go find the first book so I can read Evangeline's story.

Maggie Robinson is such a talented author. I love all her books and this one is another winner. There is love, laughter, and mystery all the best things for a book besides the happy ending. Thank you Maggie

Thank you for the free book. Can't wait to read it.
There was an awful lot of sex--well done, but I kind of got tired of it. Still, it was a good story. I liked it.
