Not Quite a Lady

Loretta Chase finishes up her Carsington Brothers series with the youngest brother, Darius. Although Darius is not my favorite brother in the series, Not Quite a Lady has a really terrific heroine in Lady Charlotte Hayward. At sixteen, Charlotte was seduced by a rake who was subse ...

Miss Wonderful

This is Loretta Chase's first book after a long hiatus. Those of you who have been waiting with bated breath should not be disappointed: Miss Wonderful is witty, charming, and deeply romantic. The book opens with the Earl of Hargate wondering what the devil is wrong with his third son. Alistair h ...

I get a shiver and I breathe a sigh of contentment and just fall into state of near total euphoria. This book will reside on my bedside tab ...
