I don't read historical ...ever!!
BUT Boy O Boy !
How hawwwt is this book . Elizabeth loves young William, but Franklin , her father, is under crushing debt. Lord Jasper Thomas seizes this opportunity to gab Elizabeth in lieu of his debt.
Jasper is Hot, sexy, dangerous and decadent

Unlike William, who smells sweet, this man smells different. His scent is dangerous. Intriguing. Decadent. The way my mouth waters in his presence is further proof of my being ill

2.5 stars

So, this book is set in the Regency Era. It's a historical, yes, and I honestly don't expect a historical paper, but I do think it needs to have some accurancy. Words like "sexy" were not used back then, and people didn't speak like we do today. Of course I also don't want a book in old-spoken English, but having characters in the past speak like they were in a contemporary romance bothered me.

Speaking of that, I had a hard time believeing it is a "historical" novella. And I'll use the

I was gifted a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

“You’re a unique and polished ruby that I was lucky enough to stumble upon. l’ll never let you slip away.”

I have fallen in love with historical romance! K. Webster has enamored me in the past with her contemporary romance and paranormal romance novels. Now, she has added another genre to her repertoire and I am, once again, captivated by her ability to tell a tale, regardless of the classification.

Wow! K. Webster has stepped out of the box and jumped into the world of historical romance. It’s not easy to make that transition but she has done a fantastic job. This is the first book is a novella series and I can’t wait for the rest!
Elisabeth is in love with her childhood sweetheart. He is sweet, loving, and kind. Although, when he left for school and didn’t return as promised, it put a strain on relationship. But, now he is back, ready to take the next step with her. Something has changed,

Solid 3.5* Honeysuckle Deliciousness

Set in an ambiguous Regency period is the closest thing to a historical romance you'll recognize in Lord Jasper Thomas and Miss Elisabeth Merriweather's world, so don't expect reasearched-based storytelling here. The dialect phrasing teeters between charmingly cheesy and garishingly modern, while the implausible, forced circumstances between our H/h are wholey inappropriate for any historical read.
Not remotelyAusten-like at all...

4.5 Honeysuckle Stars
ARC received from the very funny author for an honest review (and I'm thinking to make it up to me after making me cry without warning)

"Honeysuckle, don't you see? You're a prisoner to my affection. A slave to your own mutual craving. Together, we are shackled by two hearts that only beat with vigor when the other is near."

What in the holy hotness did you just give me to read, K. Webster?! Now, I've read maybe a handful of historical romances since I was in high school.

Oh sweet mother! I loved this story!
I'm a huge fan of historical romance, and K Webster did not disappoint.
Oh, Jasper! This dirty-talking alpha falls hard and will do anything to protect what is his.
I loved Elisabeth and Jasper's banter and off-the-charts chemistry. The second these two meet, sparks fly, which thoroughly confuses Elisabeth, since according to her, she's still in love with William. But Jasper makes her see that she really wasn't in love with William. As the story unfolds, so doe

This book completely blew me away. Let me start off by saying that I've never really been into Historical Romance, so I wasn't really sure if I would be into this or not. Boy, am I glad I decided to give it a try. When I finished, my first thought was, "Is there anything K. Webster can't do?" She made me a fan. Completely won me over.

Becoming Lady Thomas is a quick read, at 101 pages, but don't let that fool you. This book has everything! Becoming Lady Thomas is sexy, intriguing and has some rea

Oh my goodness sakes! Author K does it again and again and again!! I don't think it's possible for her to write a bad book no matter what genre it is! I fell in love with this book from the beginning! The characters are extremely dynamic and you can't help but connect with them and want more! Jasper is a little hottie that's demanding and oh so assertive! He takes what he wants and leaves you begging for more! Elisabeth is so meek at first and blossoms into a firecracker.

This one of the most beautiful historical romances I've read in a while!!! K. Webster just keeps on leaving me with my jaw hanging open. It's like I'm transported to where each book takes place. The characters I LOVED and I cannot wait for the books following. And the male lead was O M G!! I don't blush.... And I just couldn't stop doing so with this book. I felt like a naughty teen for reading. Lol. Becoming Lady Thomas is a MUST READ!!

Elisabeth Merriweather has been waiting for the day that her love, William, gets home from university so they can take off from where they left off. They are in love and plan on moving forward with their life, even ready to tell Elisabeth's father, that they were going to get married.

They were getting their Happily Ever After.

Or so they thought.

If you like a quick but great read this book will be a great read. I was able to finish it in a day and loved every minute of it. This is the first Historical Romance that I have read and really enjoyed it because K. Webster was able to bring in the feel of what it would be like to live through this time but she also kept an edge to the story. So, because of this I have fallen in love with Historical Romance. K. Webster has a way of keeping you involved in what is happening with each character a ...more

Elizabeth thinks that she has found her one and only true love, William. She waits for him while he finishes 4 years of college and longs for the day of his return. Once he returns with her sister, Edith and th

I love being transported back in time to the world of Lords, and Ladies, Dukes and Duchesses, it's just magical. Elisabeth and Jasper's story is brilliant! There is such a sweet, sweet innocence to Elisabeth that was truly endearing. Jasper is the controlling, wealthy, sexy, Lord that swoops in and literally takes Elisabeth from the family she has known and loved in her life. There is just something incredibly hot about a man who takes what he wants and let me tell you Elisabeth seems to fight i ...more

Μμμμμμμμμμμμμμμμμμμμμμμ... κάπως έτσι με άφησε η ανάγνωση αυτού του βιβλίου. Είναι Webster και περίμενα πολλά από εκείνη, αλλά μετά σκέφτηκα "την διάβαζες και από χθες";;; Όχι βέβαια! Μόνο ένα βιβλίο της έχω διαβάσει το οποίο μου άφησε τις καλύτερες εντυπώσεις, ωστόσο δεν χρειάζεται να έχω υψηλές προσδοκίες αφού δεν ξέρω καλά το έργο της.

Η ιστορία μας αφηγείται τη ζωή τριών αδερφών και στο πρώτο βιβλίο η Elisabeth καλείται να παντρευτεί έναν άντρα που δε θέλει, όντως ερωτευμένη με κάποιον άλλον

Okay so this is the second romance genre K Webster has lured me into!! The woman is a writing machine and wow is she freaking good at it!!! I haven’t read a book from her yet that I don’t love and this book is definitely no exception.

Elisabeth is a young and innocent woman who has been in love with William since she was just a young girl. She knows that when he returns from university they will marry and live happily ever after. After all he loves her too a

This was a quick and dirty read and I loved it. Totally hit the spot.

Set in historical London, Elizabeth is in love with William, but is given to another to pay her father's debt. That other is Lord Jasper Thomas, a shrewd, wealthy, handsome, and experienced businessman who became enchanted by Elizabeth's portrait when dealing with her father. Although Elizabeth is devastated to not be marrying William, she can't deny that she is physically attracted to Jasper...and he plays on this. Jasper is c

BLT is the PERFECT weekend read! Or, if you are like me, one night read ;)

Elizabeth is a little ball of fire and did not disappoint this reader. She was devastated by being taken away from the man she had planned to marry and desperately wants to get away from her newly betrothed, Jasper (or does she?).

Elizabeth's body wants something entirely different, and the emotions and "reactions" she has towards Jasper say a lot - and it's not usually "go away" ;)

Jasper lives the life like the badass ever

I’m addicted to K. Webster’s writing! So much so that I forgot to write this review! No joke! I started another one of her books and just realized that I never wrote the review for ‘Becoming Lady Thomas’. The novella was great, I was hooked in while my husband drove us to the hard rock author event (where I actually met her haha!). This Novella is perfect for road trips; it’s very fast-paced and exciting. I felt the characters were well developed for being in a novella. The story is a bit erotic ...more

Smoking Hot Historical Novella!! I loved this story! I only have one complaint, I NEED MORE!!
It starts with Lissy and her beau William on the eve of him leaving for University. Things almost go to far but she is not ready to lose her innocence. Fast forward 4 years and William is back to make her his wife. Enter Jasper Thomas. Jasper has made a deal with Elizabeth's father for her hand in marriage.
What will she do? You need to read it to fi

I was given this copy for my honest review. I'll be honest, I'm normally not one to read period romances but K. Webster has pegged this one to my liking. The story is written in such a way that you can read it and it feels like it is happening now, but with a flair that puts you into that period.

How quickly can your life change? When your family home is about to be taken, would you leave with a complete stranger to save it? Would you give up the boy you've yearned for only to be boun

Fantastically hot. I mean SMOKIN'! This was my first historical romance in quite some time and I truly enjoyed it. It is novella length...and my only complaint is that I wanted more! I wish this would have been a full length novel. Kristi is an amazing author and this was definitely another hit for her. I loved it! Looking forward to reading the next in the series.

4.25 stars for storyline
5 flames for heat.

What a sexy little read!! I love K. Webster books. While I'm not normally big into historical romance, this one had me hooked from the beginning.

"Oh, God!" She cries out in pleasure.
"Don't call from him," I growl, "Because what I want to do to you is sinful."

Anxiously awaiting the other two books in this series!! Kristi you rock!

lucky enough to get an arc of this little treasure and I've read a few period books before and didn't really care for them. thus on the other hand I loved. Lord Thomas is rather hot and lives the way he takes charge and won't take no for an answer,even though Elizabeth is reluctant at first ! Great job again Kristi

This was my first book by K Webster and all I can say is, me likey! I'm a sucker for a historical erotic romance. And becoming Lady Thomas was definitely hot! Who doesn't love dirty talk? And Jasper has it down pat. This one moved quickly along with Elisabeth not putting up much of a fight. But when you've got a Dom who gets you hot and bothered with one look, who would? Read this!
