A Rake's Guide to Seduction

Caroline Linden’s A Rake’s Guide to Seduction is one of her earliest published titles, having originally appeared in 2008.  It’s now being reissued with a rather fetching new cover (in paperback), and as it’s a book I haven’t yet read, this gave me a good excuse reason to add it to my pil ...

The Secret of My Seduction

One of the things linking together the books in Caroline Linden’s recent Scandals series was Fifty Ways to Sin, the series of erotic pamphlets featuring the amorous adventures of the anonymous Lady Constance, a woman whose uninhibited pursuit of sexual pleasure captured the imagination of thousand ...

Dressed to Kiss

Lately I’ve had great luck with anthologies and novellas, so I approached Dressed to Kiss hopeful to discover promising new-to-me authors (Robens and Frampton), and confident I would enjoy stories from old favorites (Hunter and Linden).  With thoughts of Loretta Chase’s delightful Dressmaker se ...

In this shor ...

Love in the Time of Scandal

Having thoroughly enjoyed the two previous books in this series, Love and Other Scandals and It Takes a Scandal, I’ve been eagerly looking forward to this latest instalment, which features Penelope Weston and Benedict Lennox, both of whom appeared as secondary characters in the last book. While I ...

It Takes a Scandal

Caroline Linden follows up one of my favourite books of last year, Love and Other Scandals with another beautifully written, character-driven romance which, while loosely linked to the earlier book, is very different in tone. In it, we become reacquainted with Abigail and Penelope Weston, and, of co ...
