Break the Night

Back when I was in high school and college, I loved Silhouette's Shadows line and Break the Night by Anne Stuart was a particular favorite of mine. I recently reread the book to see how it holds up. The suspense is still compelling and I still enjoyed the story, though there were some issues with th ...

The Spinster and the Rake

First published in 1982, The Spinster and the Rake is one of Anne Stuart’s earliest Regencies, and has, sadly, been out of print for a number of years.  I’ve been keen to read it ever since I became aware of its existence - I mean who doesn’t love a good rake-meets-spinster story? – and had ...

Wildfire

Any long-time romance reader probably has a favourite type of hero.  Protective alphas, arrogant arseholes, smooth spies and men of action… and then there are Anne Stuart heroes, who, as anyone familiar with her work will know, are a mixture of all the above with the aresholery often dialled up t ...

Driven by Fire

I read the first book in this series, Consumed by Fire and gave it a solid B/B+ grade, so I was excited about reading the next one by Anne Stuart. All I can say is…ugh! I pretty much hated everything about this story. Jenny Parker is the only daughter of a man who is the head of a ...

B+
Consumed by Fire

I put off reading Consumed By Fire. It’s difficult to say why; the plotline appealed to me, and I’ve certainly enjoyed Ms. Stuart’s writing enough in the past. I suppose I, like so many other people I’ve talked to lately, just fell into a bit of a reading slump. Luckily, this book proved it ...

Never Marry a Viscount

This, the final book in Ms Stuart’s Scandal at the House of Russell trilogy, focuses on Sophie, the youngest of the three Russell sisters who were left destitute after the sudden and suspicious death of their father. Determined to prove that he was innocent of embezzling all the f ...

Never Kiss a Rake

Never Kiss a Rake is the first book in a new historical trilogy by Anne Stuart entitled Scandal at the House of Russell, and I enjoyed it very much. I freely admit that it had its weaknesses, and that the hero of this book bore more than a passing resemblance to some of Ms. Stuart’s other historic ...

On Thin Ice

Narrated by Xe Sands From the moment Finn MacGowan was introduced in On Thin Ice, I wanted to hear him in audio. Who can resist the voice of an Irishman? Thanks to Tantor I only had to wait five months for the experience, and thanks to this teaser posted by narrator Xe Sands as she developed Finn ...

Reckless

“Move your bleedin’arse,” Miss Charlotte Spenser’s maid, Meggie, said to her.” With these opening words, Ms. Stuart, in the second book in her historical Rohan trilogy, pulls the reader in and doesn’t let her go until the very lovely last line. The series tells the story of three generat ...

Ruthless

I don’t think it’s too much to state that Anne Stuart’s House of Rohan trilogy comes with high, high hopes. This author has given readers some of the darkest, cruellest, and most successfully redeemed heroes ever, and her historical novels seem to have an especially devoted following, possibl ...
