A Scot to the Heart

I haven't read many books by Caroline Linden, but I'm rethinking that oversight after reading A Scot to the Heart. A sweet story about two middle-class people (although there is the potential of a dukedom thrown in), I enjoyed the chance to read about a dance at an oyster cellar instead of a grand b ...

About a Rogue

I love the premise of this series - an ailing duke suddenly without a successor, the search for potential heirs on a sparse family tree and the challenge to the heirs from the elderly duchess to start acting like ‘duke material’. In book one of the series, About a Rogue, Maximilian St. James ...

When the Marquess Was Mine

Amnesia plotlines aren’t easy to pull off well, so I’ll admit to a little trepidation when I picked up Caroline Linden’s When the Marquess was Mine, book three in her Wagers of Sin series.  Fortunately, she handles that aspect of the plot well and also creates a wonderfully romantic love stor ...

An Earl Like You

When I pick up a book by Caroline Linden, I know I’m going to be able to lose myself in a beautifully written character driven novel featuring fully-rounded characters with terrific chemistry, and a romance that evolves naturally and which is always at the forefront of the story.  An Earl Like Yo ...

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 ...

Six Degrees of Scandal

I’ve enjoyed every book in Caroline Linden’s Scandalous series and the latest, Six Degrees of Scandal is no exception. The books are all linked by the popular 50 Ways to Sin series of erotic stories penned by the mysterious Lady Constance, a woman whose sexual encounters with men who are often t ...
