My Hellion, My Heart was a delightful romance between a wonderfully wicked Earl and the Russian princess who captures his heart.

Lord Henry Radcliffe, Earl of Langlevit, has scars inside and out from his time in the war against France. The only way he knows to keep his demons at bay is to physically exert himself, in and out of the bedroom. When Henry unexpectedly encounters Princess Irina Volkonsky after a number of years, he’s surprised by his sudden attraction to his mother’s former ward. Irin

This is the third book in Howard and Morgan's "Lords of Essex" series. I read and reviewed the first book "My Rogue, My Ruin" and really enjoyed it, but I liked this one even better. Don't worry: you don't need to have read the previous books in the series to enjoy this one.

The Story-

Princess Irina is in her third season, and is expected to make a match, but none of her suitors can match up to the man who has always been lurking in the back of her mind, her former guardian Henry. Henry is a diff

The younger princess catches her man!



Irina is a Russian princess who currently resides in England after escaping the dangers in her home country. She is no longer the young girl that she was when she became a lady's ward. But adulthood isn't as freeing as Irina hoped it would be. As a woman, she is expected to follow society's rules and find a man to marry. It's too bad that the one man she wants is the one who never even looks her way

Princess Irina Volkonsky, is given the name of Ice Princess, to name just one of several. She has been offered for at least seven times this season and more if you count last season as well. But none have excited her, enough to say yes. Earl of Langlevit was once a spy for the crown in France. He felt he was a broken man and deserved nothing.
The descriptions are vivid and lush. They help bring the story depth. The characters are varied, realistic and full bodied. The plot is amazing and has twis

MY HELLION, MY HEART (A LORDS OF ESSEX NOVEL) BY AMALIE HOWARD AND ANGIE MORGAN
• What the Heart Desires
What a story! It has everything an earl and a Princess could ask for..... Plus s little menace of course. I enjoyed reading this story, made you keep thinking about what could possibly happen next. Due to sexual content this novel is recommended for readers 18 and older! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book via Tasty Book Tours through NetGalley for an honest blog tour review.

I'm what I'd call a recent convert of the historical romance genre, so I'm by no means an expert but I've so thoroughly adored this entire series!

I really loved the previous books in the series, and I thought that the previous book, My Darling, My Disaster, all about North and Lana would be my favourite because I adored both characters since they were first introduced, BUT I was wrong! From the moment I started this one, Irina and Henry became my absolute favourites!

Phenomenal story!

Henry the Earl of Langlevit is a broken man he's seen and done things he can't forget or escape from, his only release is through sexual liaisons and physical exertion. His past as an agent for the Crown marks him as unworthy for love definitely not marriageable.
The only woman who has come close to changing his mind is Princess Irina Volkonsky. Her bubbly personality and sensuality has him constantly aroused.....but she's off limits!

I can't even begin to explain to you what a page turner this was. I am not a fan of insta-love that borders on the 'unrealistic' side. That just makes a boring story to read. This one had the right amount of push-pull, the ANGST was good and it certainly kept me on my toes the entire way to read WHAT ON EARTH IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT. It's like a virtual chess of love, who's going to make the next move, and who's going

Lord Henry Radcliffe doesn't want anything to do with love, but with his thirtieth birthday approaching, he must marry. However, the only woman he wants is too innocent for his sexual appetite. He won't subject her to his war-ravaged past, but Princess Irina Volkonsky is determined to provoke Henry every time they're in the same room together. Will Irina finally win the heart of the man she's always loved, or will Henry lose her to someone that wants Irina for themselves?

Princess Irina Volkonsky is beautiful, rich, and titled, which means she should have no problem snagging a husband, right? I mean, those are the only things needed according to the ton, so the question remains, why is she still single?
Because she’s turned down all offers. So many, in fact, that her rigidity has garnered her some very cold nicknames. It’s not that she feels she’s above everyone else, which she could claim since she’s a princess. She’s more down-to-earth than that, which made me l

This story is set in the 19th century. It starts off in Paris and continues in London and Essex. It's the season when all the eligible batchelors and young maidens attend functions, in the hope of finding a suitable match.

I absolutely adored this book!! To be honest, when I first started reading it, I thought it would be exactly like your typical romance full of tired and overused cliches. I thought it would be rushed with little character development and lack of believability. Boy, was I proven wrong! Quickly proven wrong, for that matter! I loved the characters--ALL of them even poor, misguided Max. Even though he turned out to be a major jerk, I understood his motivations and like Irina, pitied him. I understo ...more

Princess Irina Volkonsky has become one of my most favorite characters. She cannot conform to the society's rules, and loves to cause trouble wherever she goes. After spending some time in France, and breaking numerous hearts, she is back in London. There are many young gentlemen vying for her hand in marriage, but the only one she wants doesn't pay any attention to her. she will make him notice her no matter what.

"Received an Advance Reader Copy in exchange for a fair review"
A good, solid historical romance with a well crafted wounded hero and a strong heroine who also carries some baggage of her own.
I really liked the hero, Henry (the Earl of Langlevit), a tortured man, still deeply haunted by his time as a spy for the crown and the darkness and pain he has been through. And of course the brazen, beautiful princess Irina, who in the end turns into a fierce female warrior, is the one who can heal him.

Princess Irina Volkonsky has been called Ice Princess and other not so polite names because she has refused seven offers this season and it isn't her first season! For Irina, the only man that she would marry is Lord Henry Radcliffe.

Henry Radcliffe, Earl of Langlevit is damaged from his service to crown and country. He has been aware of Irina since she was 14 and his mother's ward. Henry knows that he can never have Irina.

A novel that was engrossing as well as imagination awakening. A story line with plots and twists and the unexpected while still giving a romance that was heart touching.

I devoured the three books in the Lords of Essex series, and though I enjoyed all of them very much, I definitely think My Hellion, My Heart is my favorite. Henry is a fascinating character-- dark, haunted, tragic--and it was interesting to see what he went through and how it's affected him--and how he tries to keep it from society. We got a taste of Irina in My darling, My Disaster, and it was great to see the kickass heroine she's become in the intervening years. Morgan & Howard write fun ...more

This was a very clever reimagining of a Beauty & the Beast-ish tale. Irina is a spitfire intent on getting, and keeping, the only man to ever ignite her heart. Lord Henry is the brooding, wounded bird that you just want to take under your wing and try make it all better. This story was delightfully engaging and the characters were enchanting and heart-warming. I found that I couldn't put this book down, until I reached The End and Irina and Henry's happily ever after.
