Recommends it for: Readers who want to see how the Albright Sisters series ends
Disappointing, anticlimactic, formulaic and really just same old (**sigh**), same old (**sigh sigh**) and that’s just too bad because this is one top notch series. There isn’t one ounce of emotion in this story. The h/h are unlikeable characters who never connect on any level apart from sex and even that isn’t engaging. I’m not a fan of the dom/sub theme and sure there are no whips and chains and what have you for it to be a true BDSM novel, but why the author felt the need even to add that psyc ...more

The third and final book in the Albright Sisters trilogy (though there is a companion book, Taboo) features Beatrice, the bitchy demanding sister whom no one likes. Now that Miranda and Penelope have made excellent matches - love matches too - the pressure is on Beatrice, especially as she doesn't want to spend her life single and keeping her mother - a Mrs Bennet-type mother - company while the ton shuns her. Matters reach a peak when Miranda arrives to take the youngest sister, Winifred, to ha ...more

-Modern BDSM techniques thrust into season romance novel. No style involved.-

Beatrice is the black sheep of the Albreight clan of females. High-handed, spoiled and bitchy, has chased away for years any suitor that dared to approach her, eradicating her chances to wed. Her sisters, Miranda and Penelope who are now married, take the youngest (Winifred) under their wings to help improve her chances away from the gloomy influence of Beatrice and therefore abandoning her in the company of their bitte

Strong 4.5. I thought I would so hate Beatrice, but I actually liked her a lot. Very good end to a decent series. I will be looking for more by Jess Michaels/Jenna Peterson.

It's more of a 1.8. I think the author has no imagination at all. She fooled me through the whole book. I excepted a depth that never came...

So Beatrice Albright is the third sister, the one who feels that has been put aside by her mother and sisters. Gareth is the marquis of Highcroft, who's been acused of killing his first wife. Beatrice longs to set free from her mother's domain, and seems to throw herself into other kind of domain.

Gareth is sometimes tender, and that's why I haven't given a

My Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars

Thank you Jess Michaels for saving the best for last! This final chapter of the Albright Sisters leaves me with no complaints! In my opinion, this is the best crafted, steamiest, and sexiest of all.

It would take Beatrice to make the most interesting heroine. While she is a spoiled brat to rival any you can ever think of, only someone with her personality would have the guts to take on the Season's true horror, G

Grade: C- (2.5 stars)

I had high hopes for this book. Unfortunately, I found the heroine barely tolerable. Lame reasons for Beatrice's bratty behavior are explained. Garreth, the hero, was...okay. I did manage to complete this story about two ill-reputed people who try to determine sexual compatibility for marraige. There's some BDSM but nothing hardcore. (Use of bondage, Dom/sub role, and anal sex.)

Beatrice accepted the submissive role rather smoothly. We're told her personality might reject it

Thanks AJ for this one! As you and everyone can see, I loved this book!
I can understand why some people didn't it; Beatrice is a prickly woman, one called a shrew by the ton and not undeservingly. However, since The Taming of the Shrew is my favorite Shakespearian story, I should not be surprised that I ended loving this. Strange as it may sound, I prefer an intelligent, willful but selfish heroine to a goodhearted, silly and childish one (yes, that would be describing Penelope).

So, Beatrice's c

Although the first and second book in this series deals with alpha-males being tamed by wanton women, and this book is written along the same lines, there are some differences: Firstly, the relationship that forms the backbone of the plot is more concerned with... let's say domination and surrender than the previous books. Secondly; there is an actual plot outside of the romantic main-plot. Neither the way the romance comes to a conclusion, nor who the true villain of the book is can hardly be s ...more

4.5 stars. The silly conflict at the end saves this from being 5 stars. It was kind of not needed. Still a really good book that I read in one sitting. HOT. No doubt about that!

Thanks Michelle!

Didn't like this one as much as the three others I've read in the series. The characters were inconsistent and the plot was laughable. Too bad...the others were great.

“But part of the seduction is waiting. It’s wondering when the moment will become, because that makes the moment all the more enjoyable. Don’t you like waiting?”

Nothing Denied is book three in the Albright Sisters series by Jess Michaels. This is my favorite book in the series, it’s so hot my nook practically combusted. Beatrice Albright and Gareth Berenger, the Marquis of Highcroft, both have a reputation that precedes them. Beatrice grew up spoiled by her mother and developed a difficult, shre

This series is a quick erotic story to help you forget your troubles for the weekend. It's not meant (I don't think) to be ground-breaking, life-altering literature. Set aside historicity and just enjoy the inevitable happy ending of Jess Michael's fantasy world.

This was my least favorite of the Albright Sisters trilogy. I quite liked the others and am a fan of Jess Michaels. I would definitely recommend Something Reckless and Everything Forbidden to fans of erotica. Though it's not necessary to

I spent the first half of this book disgusted with the bitchy shrew of a heroine.... and the last half of this book totally in love with both of the main characters! Once Beatrice gave herself over to Gareth, she softened a bit and seemed to care about something other than herself. The pacing of their romance was perfect, and the sex scenes were HOT!!
I really enjoyed this book.

​This also is a super steamy read. To me it was closer to beauty and the beast, however she doesn't really see herself as beautiful because of her personality. I had to keep reading.

Just fun.

Nothing better than some sex and a shrewish heroine. You know what will happen but it doesn't make it any less enjoyable.

Taming of the Shrew, but kinky and less objectionable.

Great erotica but I still think the first book in this series is my favorite. This was good too though

This is the most erotic of the three and very stimulating. I enjoyed the initial flirting and the hint at exhibitionism. This theme continues throughout.

Members of the ton give Beatrice Albright a wide berth. Though beautiful, the third Albright sister is an acknowledged shrew and, at the beginning of her seventh season, considered to be ready for spinsterhood.

Beatrice is aware of her reputation and knows that her attitude has landed her in a situation that is almost too much for her to bear. When her older sisters take their youngest sister rather than Beatrice under their wing in order to help Winifred catch a husband, Beatrice finds herself s

GENRE: Erotic Historical Romance
SETTING: England, 1800's (I guess)
SERIES: Albright Sisters, #3

I feel this story is underdeveloped and a touch lightweight. It took place within two weeks, not counting the epilogue that jumps ahead five years. We didn't learn anything about Beatrice's or Gareth's childhoods. I don't even know how old they are or what year this took place. I guess she's twenty-three, since girls had their first 'season' at sixteen. This novel is fairly
Because I REALLY think it is the best among all the books in these series minus OFCOURSE the BDSM part (I'm more than relieved there's no whipping). Although the heroine is stubborn and a bitch even the first time she was introduced in these series, I can't really hate her. In this book, the author is able to explain clearly how and why she is like that even before the start of the story. You will see that she really didn't like the way she d
