I counted on him punishing me too.
Once Ivy Leavold learned the truth behind the night of her cousin's death, she knew should couldn't stay with Julian Markham any longer and fled to London on what was supposed to be the day of their wedding. But Julian Markham is not the kind of man who takes ...more

FULL REVIEW THOUGHTS TO COME SOON!
Ivy has come a long way since first arriving at Markham Hall. She was such a solitary woman before meeting Julian Markham. Book three opens with the separation of Ivy and Julian due to Ivy's doubts about her sexual preferences and proclivities.
During their separation, Julian is determined to win back Ivy and starts to court her traditionally until the night of the Baron's masquerade party. During that evening, Ivy accepts her self-inflicted punishment of denial and accepts Ju ...more
In book three we got to read Julian's POVS and I fell even more in love with him. It got even more erotic and it definitely pushed some of my boundaries, but I so enjoyed it!
This picks up immediately after the events of the second book and Ivy has moved in with her long lost aunt while she decides whether she's willing to embrace her inner submissive. She feels obliged to act like a fine, upstanding lady ju ...more
Julian was very nearly a perfect hero in my opinion. He was good looking, dark/broody at times, he was deliciously aggressive in the bedroom, and yet he still possessed some gentlemanly valor. He was an intriguing character and I was excited that we got a few chapters from Julian's perspective in this final...more
Ah, more of Mr. Markham. But, of course! Considering in this book, there is a dual POV. I’m just blown away that I am able to peek in Mr. Markham’s mind. His thoughts, what he is thinking, and of course, my favorite part and favorite position of him when he is thinking. I wish he would just think more. LOL
(view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)]
As the mystery of Mr. Markham is unraveled, I was left an emotional wreck with Ivy’s decisions and the result of it to Julian.
I didn't ...more
Julian Markham is a serious, handsome and possessive man. He reeks of domination, and it doesn’t take Ivy long to fall under his spell.
I’m not a big fan of historical romance, and this may not truly reside within that genre if I was a diehard fan. But to say I was completely under Mr Markham’s spell too, would be ...more
“Something twisted inside me then, something sharp, and I couldn’t bring myself to examine it head on. I didn’t need to. I already knew what it was. It was love and it was pain and it was the realization that I wanted nothing more than to be with Mr. Markham and he wanted nothing more than to be with me ...more
It didn't worked for me at all...i swear,the first book was amazing...In this one they just acted like horny hormonal teenagers with bipolar feelings "Oh i love you but i can't be with you but still...i will fuck you.YOLO" I rolled my eyes too many times.And that's a bad sign. Sierra...Why?!
The only scene that i really really loved was table scene (the one at the Baron) because of course,there was Silas.And the ones where he only just talked...God dammit i love h ...more
Well that was certainly a surprise! I was not expecting that and it was a well written twist of events, a great ending to this trilogy. Ivy struggled with her identity in this installment, which is where the loss of star comes in from me. While I don't mind a little inner turmoil, much of this book was dedicated to her vacillating between being with Julian or resigning herself to a lifetime of loneliness. Ivy and Julian had such chemistry, I would've much rather read about that. Wh ...more
I can say I finally read an entire historical romance series. And might I say, it wasn't bad, but definitely not my fave genre. Although, it was kinky, as hell..
The mystery is revealed about what happened to Julian's last wife, but mostly this is ivy being scared of her true self and who she has became once she and Julian started having sex. She is scared of her inner desires. Julian has to woo her again and c ...more

(Leigh reviewed books 2 & 3 together)
Who knew that Regency England could be so scorchingly hot underneath all of that formality?
In the final two books of the trilogy, we follow Ivy as she questions the role Mr. Markham played in the death of his wife and whether she should leave him despite the love they feel for one another. I wanted to reach into the book and yell “NO!”
These two people were perfectly matched. Ivy came to Markh ...more
This is another one that I'm loosely calling a book. This one is 124 pages and in my opinion, that is novella territory. Surprisingly, it still felt like a whole book. Weird.
I was so thrilled to read Ivy and Julian's happily ever after. That's not a spoiler, is it? I mean, isn't that why we read these books... for the HEA? But I digress. The full story of Julian's second wife comes out and it was just as I had suspected. Reading all those romantic ...more
