A Libertine...

Jeremy Greymont certainly qualifies. ‘Sex rough and women loose’ is his credo—one he’s always taken very seriously, with no deference whatsoever to the society into which he’s been born. He’s been perfectly content milling along through life on an existence of courtesans and fine Scotch whisky...that is until his grandfather lets him know he’s out of time,

It's very easy to lose yourself within the words of a book, especially if the book is Raine Miller's. I finished this book a week ago and tried and tried to compose a review that I felt justified this story. Many times, I wanted to squeal and swoon at the same time. Other times, I had to set my kindle to the side and gain composure of myself. I found it very hard to concentrate doing my daily tasks as I dwelled upon the chapter I had finished. I absolutely did not find one single thing about thi ...more

I was gifted this book by the author as a winner of the “Shh… Holiday GIFT Drawing 2016!”. A special thanks to this author but also all the other authors gifting books in that GiveAway as well as a thanks to the amazing team which organized it.

Another wonderful story in this historical series by Raine Miller. It has been some time since I read an historical by I loved both books in this series.

This is a wonderful story of love, trust, caring, survival and another wonderful hero to fall in love

This was my first book by Raine Miller and I really enjoyed it. The story was really good as were the character's. The hero said some really sigh worthy things to the heroine. It took a while for the heat to turn up but once it did, WOW! The heroine did have one TSTL moment near the end but I could understand why she would have done it. I might have done the same thing too, LOL. Of course we

the undoing of a libertine!!!! what a great story!

opening sentence...

"A proper blow always felt nice. Satisfying as hell, he thought. And he’d needed it. Badly. As usual, the sex played out just the way he liked—driving at full hop and more on the rough side of things than not."

i think i did a double take when i read this...seriously...i had to reread this! and then i laughed...yes, Ms. Miller, you have my attention!

The Undoing of a Libertine is the second historical written by Raine Miller. Set in 1837 England the story revolves around Jeremy Greymont, a self-indulgent Libertine who must find a wife so that he can produce an heir at the insistence of his grandfather. Enter Georgina Russel, the 21 year old sister of Jeremy's friend Tom, whose father is trying desperately to marry her off. Through the story we find out that Georgina has suffered through a terrible ordeal and thus feels she is not worthy to m ...more

Holy Hotness Batman! I have never been one to get into Historical Romance, but along with His Perfect Passion, these two novels by Raine Miller have helped make me a believer!

Not only are the heroes swoon worthy but the heroines are strong women who with the help of their men get through some pretty incredible circumstances.

It is no secret to anyone who knows me that I am a HUGE fan of Raine Miller's Blackstone Series. Yet even with my love of Ms. Miller, I was still reluctant to start this boo
This one was a slow read for me. The first half seemed to drag on and on, but the action picked up in the second half. The hero wavered between alpha and beta and I couldn't decide how to categorize him.

I had read this author's new work Naked just prior to reading this one. Although it was a much shorter, the writing in it seemed crisper and more focused which indicates to me that her writing style is evolving in a very good direction. Will certainly look with interest for her new releases, but

This was a beautiful, romantic, steamy and sensual read. This deep connection between Jeremy and Georgina that goes beyond lust and helps them both to overcome their past is well written. They both grow as individuals and as lovers, partners, friends.
But can I salute the fathers and brothers for taking revenge? Glad Raine Miller didn't fear to write it the way she did! Salute to her as well for that.
And if you have read all books by Raine then you will find little details from other books and ch

Wow! I have to admit I was a little hesitant to purchase this book but O.M.G. Let me explain, I was hesitant simply because I'm not a historical romance reader, never, I just never got it, that is until I discovered Raine Miller!!!! I've been turned, I love, loved this book, the characters and their story! Thank you Raine Miller for making me a believer and reader of historical romance novels!!! ...more

I rarely read historical romances but fortunately made an exception for Raine's.

It wouldn't matter what era Jeremy Greymont lived in, he would set hearts a fluttering and lady parts a tingling ANY time! He was a seriously swoon-worthy hero. And Georgina was the ideal lady/lover/wife for him! ❤

Hero went from rake to love struck idiot in about 20 minutes. After that, almost every scene is the same. Just awful. Could only force myself through two thirds of the book.

The Undoing of a Libertine was a heart-achingly beautiful, touching and very sensual story. This historical romance had love and passion in abundance as well as tragedy and angst. But as in all Raine Miller books we get a well-deserved HEA for our two protagonists after they've been trough some challenging trials and tribulations and experienced the healing power of love. I found myself once again in awe of this author's exceptional talent. Raine's ability to write captivating stories that go un ...more

It's time for Jermey to stop his playboy ways and find a wife. He needs to start filling his nursery with an heir and a spare.

Gena's reputation has been soiled, but not voluntarily by her. Her father wants to save the family shame and is thrusting her upon a old friend of his because he needs to get rid of her before the shame is known. Problem is, this so called "friend" has a dark side that her father apparently doesn't know about. Gena doesn't want to marry him.

Although I don’t consider myself a dedicated fan of historical romance, I very much enjoyed reading The Undoing of a Libertine last year. However, I was quite displeased with the narration and production of the audiobook. The narrators were inconsistent in their performances—often sounding entirely uninspired. Even more disturbing was their mispronunciation of names and, I believe, many words. I cannot be positive as to exactly WHICH words w

The Undoing of a Libertine is a 5 star masterpiece from Raine Miller and a must read for all romance fans! If you, like me, have watched Bridgerton on Netflix about 15 times already and are currently obsessed with historical novels, then you definitely need to pick up this one! It's a great combination of sweet, sexy and angsty, with a very fast paced and intriguing story line. The two main protagonists are absolutely brilliant. Georgina is a strong woman who has suffered and survived a brutal a ...more

The first 75% of this book was a passionate, absorbing, hot and interesting read. It was very annoying to be interrupted and have to put down my kindle and come back to the real world!

Jeremy has turned 30 and is being hounded by family to marry and produce and heir. He is a really honorable and good man who has drifted through life emotionally untouched, his evenings being taken up by drink, cards and women. He feel incapable of love and has never pursued it, lots and lots of meaningless sex is

I really loved this book ... a classic love story in every sense even if predictable it was nice to go back to something like that after so many brooding angst ridden billionaires with mental issues.... made this story seem most unusual these days! Jeremy Greymont for all his faults IS mentally sound and able to love Georginia in a way that is both beautiful and r

Another great historical erotic romance from Raine Miller. I absolutely loved this book and the Characters (Jeremy & Georgina) and so many others that made this story great. What a beautiful love story from a dark man and a damaged woman. I was so glad that the story started strong & stayed that way until the end with a few twists & turns along the way. Jeremy was unlikable right from the beginning and then how can you resist falling in love with him. Georgina, you had to love her from the start ...more

The Undoing of a Libertine by Raine Miller is an amazing love story set in 19th century England. The story of Jeremy and Georgina grabbed me from the very first page and kept me in its seductive hold through all the trials and tribulations of their 'courtship'. The characters are strong throughout the story and I loved watching them grow from page to page.

The sex scenes, yes there are alot of them, but this is an 'erotic romance novel', and are very compelling but tastefully written and had my h

Aah Raine Miller has done it again!
I'm a sucker for a good historical romance and this is definitely a good, nah excellent one indeed. I found myself completely wrapped up in the story from the very beginning and frankly I struggled to put it down. Jeremy Greymont...sigh, he's just so perfectly perfect that I couldn't help but fall in love with him and Georgina, sweet, strong heart bled for her in places and rejoiced with her in others. An honest to goodness perfect historical hero
This was about a third again too long. For the last third, I kept thinking, "Isn't it almost over?" I appreciate the time taken to thoroughly resolve the plot laid out at the beginning, but by the last scene, it was overkill. Suddenly we were hearing random gossip about unknown characters at a party and it felt like the author was just laying groundwork for some other story.
The relationship became too overly-sentimental once they were together. Too fluffy and sweet for my taste.

Raine Miller has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara Cartland book at the tender age of thirteen. And it's a safe bet she'll never stop, because now she writes them too! Granted Raine's stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in her grave, but to her way of thinking, a hot, sexy hero never goes out of fashion. A former teacher, she's now writing sexy romance sto ...more
