This was a easy fast read that I so enjoyed....I hated to see it end.

What a darling little novella this was! And yes, as is the case with many novellas I’ve encountered, especially the really good ones, I wish it had been full length if only to further develop the romance of the main couple whose connection was already quite strong. More pages period would’ve been nice of course, but that won’t stop me from gushing all over this one just as it is.

First off, I absolutely loved the setp. House parties and therefore forced proximity between the leads are always winn

GREAT REGENCY ROMANCE
We love this storyline as it has to do with ladies being seen as un-chaste, when it is so-called titled gentlemen whom do as they please. No different today, when we say sowing their oats about young men, but chastise young women and call them sluts for doing the same. Thank you for a very engaging story, Danny and Debbie Scott.

A spinster meeting a rake, trying to keep him away from the debutante she is governess for? And giving him hell when he hasn't yet done anything? Those two start off right how I like it and it keeps going strong throughout the story. I absolutely enjoyed this part of the Passionate Promises anthology!

I vaguely remember reading this when I first bought it, and I'm fairly sure I enjoyed it then. This time... ehhh. I just wasn't feeling it. Quick read (in terms of actual reading time!), nice HEA ending. Don't expect I'll read any more of this series, but I do tend to prefer a regency setting.

A nice short read about rogues. Felicity and Alex made a good match.

Nice little novella. Good character development even in the short number of pages. Will be reading more from this author.

Although this is my second, and third, read of this lovely story, I felt it deserves a new review. One gets something new from each read and re-read of a quality manuscript.
These poor debutantes, coming to the Forsythe house party, where they are assured to meet the uber-tall, handsome, charming 'rake' Alexander Evering, Viscount Lindsay. Lady Georgiana, Countess Forsythe has assured all that her nephew is available, although she neglected to tell him that he is to be the soup du jour.

I received a copy in exchange for my honest review.

This story will suck you in and will have you wanting more. I will be going crazy waiting for this series. It's a quick read, but not too quick so you get a feel for everything without feeling rushed. I loved the whole I'm just a chaperone and you shouldn't even notice me thing.

I really liked Felicity because when she set out to do something she tried her best. I loved the scene with her and the book.

Alex is a man that was thrown into a pit of

Always tempt a rogue like Alex! I originally read this story as part of a box set and really liked it – it has been updated to include an extra chapter and I love it. The extra steam, I mean scene, is fantastic. Love the “stay away from my charge, but wait, I cannot be falling for you” storyline. Felicity and Alex are a perfect couple. Witty banter and winking, yes, winking…who can resist that?

Favorite line : “No, that won’t do. I was rather hoping you’d join me in getting into trouble.”

A cute, quick introduction to the series. You get a great story all with the setup to kick-start the Rogue's rulebook series.
