How the Wallflower Was Won

The previous novel in Eva Leigh’s Last Chance Scoundrels series was a delightfully spicy romp, and the spice is most definitely evident in book two How the Wallflower Was Won. But the use of a disappointing and unnecessary third act break-up pulls the final grade down a bit.  Now that Kieran ...

The Good Girl's Guide to Rakes

Eva Leigh and her Scotsmen are at it again.  In the first volume of this brand-new series, bad boys meet good women and find themselves tempted by family ties.  The Good Girl’s Guide to Rakes combines Leigh’s characteristic spice with some earthy language and a heroine who doesn’t back away ...

Waiting for a Scot Like You

Waiting for A Scot Like You is the third book in Eva Leigh’s Union of the Rakes series, which is based on Ms. Leigh’s favorite movies from the 1980s. This book is loosely based on Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Footloose, but while I was a big fan of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off I just could not f ...

My Fake Rake

Remember the Hollywood trend of remaking historical stories into contemporary teen romances - Clueless, She's the Man, Ten Things I Hate About You? Would you like to read a book that does the reverse and sticks modern high schoolers in the Regency? Neither would I. Lady Grace has had a crush on M ...

Dare to Love a Duke

I tend to have pretty tepid feelings towards secret clubs in romances, whether they’re historical or contemporary. There’s something about the idea of all these sex clubs, gaming hells and what have you operating in secret and yet always making gobs of money and never seeming to require much – ...

Counting on a Countess

I’ve been looking forward to Counting on a Countess, the second book in Eva Leigh’s London Underground series, which features a set of clever, independent heroines in unusual circumstances who have to make their livings in a somewhat unorthodox manner.  I’m a fan of Ms. Leigh’s; she’s a g ...

From Duke Till Dawn

From Duke Till Dawn changes the perspective usually seen in historical romance.  Most times the story is told through the viewpoint of the rich, where the mansions, ballrooms and men’s clubs of London are standard fare.  Author Eva Leigh takes all of that glamour and turns it on its ear to show ...

Temptations of a Wallflower

Having featured a female newspaper editor (Forever Your Earl) and a female playwright (Scandal Takes the Stage), this final book in Eva Leigh’s Wicked Quills of London, takes as its heroine the author of a number of highly successful erotic novels. Each of the books in this series has explored wha ...

Forever Your Earl

When it was announced at last year’s RWA that Zoe Archer was going to be turning her hand to writing Regency romances under the pseudonym of Eva Leigh, I was undoubtedly one of many immediately asking “when? WHEN?!” (and "who do I have to kill to get a copy?") I have enjoyed other books of her ...
