The Duke's Proposal

For a lot of us, Leslie LaFoy consistently delivers pleasurable books. And the good news is that, even though it’s not without flaws, The Duke’s Proposal is another in her string of well-written European Historical Romances. The last in her trilogy of books featuring the illegit ...

The Rogue's Bride

The Rogue's Bride is the second book in LaFoy's trilogy about the three illegitimate daughters of a deceased duke who had arranged for the girls to be ennobled by the Queen and made wards of his heir. The eldest daughter married the new duke in Her Scandalous Marriage, so this book tells the story ...

Her Scandalous Marriage

Okay. I'll admit it. When I read the back cover blurb on my ARC and discovered that I had to read a book about some nobleman forced to take his dead great-uncle's bastard children and launch them into society, I thought I was going to be in for something trite and downright painful. Thank goo ...

Grin and Bear It

Stacy Kavanaugh is just trying to get on with her life. Hopefully just days, if not hours, away from negotiating the final property settlement with her soon-to-be-ex husband Daniel, she decides to give into his latest requests - the fondue set and pasta machine. Dealing with him or his bimbo girlfri ...

Blindsided

I’ve been aware of Leslie LaFoy for awhile now as her recent books have garnered good grades from my fellow reviewers. The problem is, I’m not too keen on Regency historicals or spies. So when I saw she was now trying her hand at category romance which is more my cuppa, I jumped at the chance to ...

The Perfect Desire

Leslie LaFoy wraps up her Perfect trilogy in winning style, pairing the slightly reckless, danger-seeking private investigator Barrett with his “perfect” feminine counterpart. The result is a thoroughly engrossing relationship between two equally strong and self-sufficient characters. Bar ...

The Perfect Temptation

I'm definitely getting on the Leslie LaFoy bandwagon. This follow-up to The Perfect Seduction features what worked well about the last book - interesting characters and a unique premise - and goes that earlier novel one better by picking up the pace of the central couple's developing relation ...

The Perfect Seduction

I feel a bit shallow making this observation, but the biggest downside to this book is the unfortunate fact that the likable hero and heroine take way too long (way, way, way too long) to get to it. But despite all that overly prolonged foreplay, The Perfect Seduction is, on the whole, a well writte ...

Come What May

Come What May is an historical romance set in America, but it's not a Western. Leslie LaFoy's latest is set in Virginia on the eve of the American Revolution. The plot involves a forced marriage between two strong characters who made this a very fun book to read. When Claire Curran, acting as a r ...

Jackson's Way

I was very, very impressed with the beginning of this book. It's set in 1839, and the country in general was reeling from the Panic of 1837. I can't recall many books set in America during this time, and I've never seen one that discussed this particular economic disaster, which was huge at the time ...
