The Secret Wedding

I don't know why I don't read Jo Beverley's books more often; I always like them. After reading The Secret Wedding, I am determined to read fewer lame Harlequin Presents books this year, and more Jo Beverley. This particular book is a real mixture of plot elements. Part Big Secret, part Road Roma ...

My Lady Notorious

Jo Beverley's classic Malloren series is one that I’m slowly working my way through...completely out of order. My Lady Notorious, the first in the series, is a road romance set in a delightful time period in which the author excels featuring two ladies in distress and the soldier who comes to the ...

Lovers and Ladies: The Fortune Hunter

The premise of The Fortune Hunter is simple: the de Lacys are a respectable family, but dreadfully poor. The eldest daughter is too plain to possibly attract any wealthy men, and the youngest is, well, too young. It is up to the beautiful middle daughter, Amy, to ensnare a rich husband to support he ...

Lovers and Ladies: Deirdre and Don Juan

The RITA-award winning Deirdre and Don Juan is a sweet read. When he was twenty years old, the Earl of Everdon - nicknamed “Don Juan” for his rakishness and his exotic looks - married for love. Shortly after, his beautiful wife left him for another man and shattered his dreams of true love and ...

A Lady's Secret

A Lady's Secret, Jo Beverley's newest, is a fun, "nun on the run" road romance set in her Georgian Malloren world. And yes, Rothgar makes an appearance. Robin Fitzvitry, the Earl of Huntersdown, is returning to England after a visit to Versailles, when he sees a beautiful woman in a nun's habi ...

Lady Beware

Jo Beverley’s books have always been comfort reads to me. Lady Beware, the latest in her Company of Rogues series, fits nicely into this category. Lord Darien returns a hero from the Napoleonic Wars to claim a title that is blemished, to say the least. Because of his wastrel ancestor ...

To Rescue a Rogue

The Company of Rogues is finally complete. I’ve been waiting for Dare’s story for a while, along with every other fan of this series, I’m sure. Dare lived up to my expectations completely, although I had to warm up to his heroine, partly because she’s very young. Mara does mature (thankfully ...

The Rogue's Return

The newest entry in Jo Beverley's Company of Rogues series features The Missing Rogue, Simon St. Bride who, when mentioned at all in previous books, has simply been "in Canada." In The Rogue's Return we finally learn what Simon has been doing all this time. While Simon's family are tra ...

A Most Unsuitable Man

Remember when everyone was "waiting for Rothgar"? Well, he's back in a secondary role in Jo Beverley's newest Malloren book. Like its predecessors, it's set in Georgian England, when men were men - but got to wear really cool pretty clothes. I have to confess that I am a relative novice where Beverl ...
