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 funds from his ...

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 ...

Shameless

Ah, Anne Stuart historicals. Anyone who has read even just two could predict the sequence of events: Bad boy hero, innocent(ish) heroine, some kind of suspense plot and sex at the tenth hour, immediately followed by emotional evisceration of the heroine before hero falls at her feet. You like, or yo ...

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 genera ...

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, possibly ...

Silver Falls

When I think dark, angsty heroes, Anne Stuart's name comes to mind first. She's created some of the darkest alpha heroes I've ever come across and, while I probably wouldn't like some of them in real life, I lap them up in fiction. In Silver Falls, she tells a very eerie tale about a serial killer ...

The Fall of Maggie Brown

Shockingly enough, this was my first Harlequin, and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’ve always been a little wary of 200 paged novels, but with Anne Stuart, I figured I’d be in good hands. I wasn’t wrong: this is the most fun I’ve ever had in such a short time. Maggie Brow ...

Fire and Ice

We first met Reno in Ice Blue, introduced as Takashi O’Brien’s punk Japanese cousin, complete with piercings, tattoos, and bright red, waist-length hair. While I was amused at the bits of comedic relief he provided in both that book and Ice Storm, I wasn’t sure how Ms. Stuart could transform h ...

Ice Storm

Luck has been on my side recently, as I have read several books that I’ve truly enjoyed. Ice Storm will join the ranks at the top. I devoured it as quickly as I possibly could, neglecting chores, meals, and my husband. This will not be a story for everyone, however – it features a dark romanc ...
