You know when you have that (hopefully) rare book where nothing happens, a snooze fest that makes you question why you read on – well that didn’t happen here rather I found myself baffled and getting dizzy due to how much happened, in such a short time span (seriously I felt like a cartoon character with birds/stars dancing around my head as I shook myself). When I say a lot happens this is in regards to both events and the main characters’ behaviour/feelings. For example, one minute (literally) ...more

I wasn't going to even add this to my Goodreads log, because I thought it would be a quick, fun read that I finished in a day and not worth writing about, however this book was SO BAD I felt the need to post a review to warn people. If you're looking for a romance novel with EVERY single stupid trope of old-school romance, where no interaction makes any sense and no one reacts the way an actual human would; where any action is entirely driven by outside forces and not by character development or ...more

To many ideas for one book, and not much of a romance book. She had 3 books going on i hope she learn to narrow her ideas.

I'm so glad I read this free because it wasn't worth a dime, it took me a week to get through it to. Hopefully she'll get better.

An exceptionally fantastic and marvelous romantic adventure and love story.

Mystery, intrigue, kidnapping and high seas adventure are just a few of the obstacles that Megan and Nicholas must overcome before they can be together and have their happily ever after. In this first book of the Secrets & Scandals series, Megan fell in love with Nicholas when she was little more than a child. Nicholas falls for Megan at first sight and thus begins their romantic journey to be together.

Not too bad

Most of the reviews I read before reading this said there was too much drama. I would agree with that sometimes too much action gets old. It did seem like there was constantly something bad happening and then they didn’t really dissolve the first issue before another one happened.

Tiffany writes her story well. The characters are fun. Tiffany keeps the story interesting where I just have to keep turning the pages.

It was an ok read but I don't think the author understands that you don't need so much drama in one book.. This was just all over the place.. Hopefully the author has gotten better..

This book would have been so much better without all the excess drama! Too much! Loved the basic plot, but there is way too much crammed into it. For example, the rape attempt by sailors on the ship and eventual trial.....why was it added? Didnt need it! The back and forth misunderstandings and undue angst between the two main characters is another example....enough is enough. The author does the job well enough without all the additional side stories. I inadvertently read book 3 prior

I started off thinking, hey here is a nice plot,let's read... I could not continue past 50% of the book. I was so disappointed with the heroine. she does not have any opinions for herself. There is no strength in the character. She just assumes and cries. At times, I wondered if she was even a duke's daughter. The description of her entry to society would be more suited to a person who is of "common" existence. I could not believe it was for her. The hero also did not have spunk..He could have s ...more

Good book

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I found the story intriguing and the romance sweet. This is the first time I have read a book from this author but I certainly will read book two in the series.

Unexpectedly fun kindle unlimited historical romance find. The book was all over the place with one drama happening right after the other, kinda a start stop every chapter. But it was still a good read, and I liked the characters.

The storyline was good, so I gave it three stars. I felt the dialogue was stilted and confusing. The story was just ok

Needs a good overhaul. All over the place and the hero and heroine truly need some character work. DNF

Amazon bestselling author, Tiffany Green, credits her passion for the Regency-set historical romance to her long-time hero Judith McNaught. Inspired by the structure of old-world society and settings, Tiffany sought to create characters and story lines to challenge that structure with the slightly darker, more sensual voice of Regency Allure.
