5 - "I always knew she'd be the death of me." Stars!

Lauren Smith did it again, book one took me places I have never really wanted to go before, its follow-up took me back and I just, don't want to leave. I am still absolutely stunned by how much I have fallen head over heels with The League of Rogues I want more, I want it now, and if I thought it would work, I would hold my breath until Lauren gave into my whims!

This is the second book in Lauren Smith’s League of Rogues series and I couldn’t wait to be in the company of those loveable rogues Godric, Lucien, Cedric, Charles and Ashton once again.

Lucien

description

The hero falling for his best friend’s sister just happens to be one of my favourite tropes. I enjoyed that “forbidden love” aspect which raises the heat level of the sexual tension between Lucien and Horatia and causes such a dilemma for Lucien.

Lucien has managed to hide his attraction to Horatia beneath

Lucien let's his freak flag fly. It's nothing for him to sleep with two women at a time with others in the room. All members of The League of Rogues know he's a deviant that loves to tie women up.

The League has few rules, but the most important is that "Sisters Are Off Limits"!!


Lucien, Marquess of Rochester

So when Lucien falls for the sister of his best friend, Viscount Cedric Sheridan, there is total hell to pay!!

Another wonderful sensual Historical Romance by Lauren Smith. This is the second book in The League of Rogues series and is even better than the first one, and that is saying alot. Lauren writes exciting plots and amazing characters that enthrall you from beginning to end. What I love most about her books are that there are so much more than just the two main protagonists, you get to know all the Rogues and they are all compelling, handsome, alpha males that will have their own books.

This was my first encounter with this author, but I can guarantee that it won't be my last. I had such a fun time with this book. Unrequited love, danger, elicit passion and humor all made it a wonderful, engaging read.

Oh, what a tragedy this is. Not really but it pains me to give only 3 stars to someone like Lauren Smith. I've read other works by her and this is by far the least of my favorites.
Horatia, our heroine decides to be Lucien's shoe cleaning mat and lets him step all over her in every which way he chooses, all in the name of the unrequited love she's felt for him ever since she was a child. Lucien is of course a member of the League of Rogues, London's most notorious rakes and Horatia's brother's b

#2 in "The League of Rogues" series, but can be read as a stand alone. Although, I would recommend reading the first in the series to better understand the reasons why someone is out to destroy the League.

Fast paced, filled with plenty of action, secrets, passion, danger, friendship, deceit, witty banter and romance. WOW! What a wickedly delicious tale that will have you holding your breath as the next disaster approaches the rogues and their family. The characters are engaging, entertaining, be

The League of Rogues is a group of close friends who have rules they must abide by. But what do you do when one of those rules prevents you from the one person you want more than anything? Lucien's unorthodox desires and that one rule have him struggling to stay away from the one woman he wants most, Horatia. The sparks between these two made it fun to read. I found myself wanting to smack Cedric, Horatia's brother, upside the head at times. I laughed at the conversations between Lucien's family ...more

This story is wonderful. I laughed when the Ladies escaped from the locked bedroom and re-appeared downstairs, and loved the snowball fight - Ladies v Gentlemen.
I think that after reading only 2 novels by Lauren Smith, she is becoming another one of my favourite authors!
I enjoyed this book immensely.

I really enjoyed this book. I liked Horatia a great deal, she was a woman who knew her heart and refused to settle for less. Her and the other women of this book (her sister Audrey, Emily, & Lucien's mother Jane Lady Rochester) were utterly hilarious. Such as when Horatia, Audrey, & Emily evaded their men. During the snowball fight. And a lot of Lady Rochester's thoughts and the things she says are laugh out loud funny. I also liked Lucien, he was so protective, even when he was being a ...more

I just want everyone to know that this is only my second Historical Romance novel that I have ever read. I have always stayed away from this genre because pretty much the word “historical” put me off. I did read the prequels to The Mortal Instruments series and those were historical romances so I guess I wasn’t too put off, but for some reason even though it was written in that time I still didn’t associate it with historical romance and I think that is because I read TMI first then the prequels ...more

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I love it when as a reviewer I read a book that is so wonderful and delightful that the review just writes itself. This is absolutely the case with His Wicked Seduction by Lauren Smith. This book has everything you could want in a historical romance – fascinating characters, an intriguing plot, unrequited love, great passion and so much more.

League Rule #2: “One must never seduce another member’s sister. Should this rule be broken, the member whose sister was seduced has the right to demand satisfaction”. Alas, in HIS WICKED SEDUCTION by Lauren Smith, that rule is broken and put to a test!

Lucien Russell, Marquess of Rochester met Horatia Sheridan when she was only 14; she was like a little sister to him. However Horatia has always been in love with Lucien; she told him as much. Lucien is a member of the League of Rogues, as is Horatia’s older brother Cedric. And one does not covet another member’s sister, that’s one of the reasons why Lucien gives Horatia the cold shoulder. Also because he knows he’s unworthy of her: he’s a depraved, debauched rogue and she’s like an angel to him ...more
