Regency Romp Review
I love Cerise DeLand's writing. I really do. She was awesome enough to send me this box set as an advanced readers copy in exchange for my honest review. So to her I say thank you very much!
First of all I think the cover is simply stunning. I also love that all the stories are connected. Don't get me wrong, they are all stand alone stories but it is nice that some of the characters carry over. I actually read Masquerade with a Marquess several months ago and I read it again as part of this set. Each story has such memorable characters and scenarios. My favorite is Rendezvous with a Duke.
The only thing that I didn't care for so much was the first story in the set. Lady Varney's Risque Business is a great story but I felt like it got a little too "intimate" right away. I like a good steamy novel as well as anyone but it just felt a bit rushed for my liking. However, it has such a great ending and the characters have such a great chemistry that I couldn't help but keep reading.
This is hands down one of the BEST box sets I have read in a long time and I recommend anyone who loves a good regency romance to buy it. https://www.amazon.com/Regency-Romps-Rogues-Spies-Lords-ebook
I have included some blurbs for each of the books below.
Lady Varney’s Risqué Business, Book 1
When Lady Varney, a proper lady of the ton, takes on a new client in her matchmaking business, she discovers he has one risqué demand. Spend the night with him! If she refuses, then she must stand aside and watch the only man she’s ever adored marry another woman. Can she surrender to one night's temptation—and if she does, how can she live without him?
Rendezvous with a Duke, Book 2
Anna Fournier secludes herself, scandal staining her family name and all her prospects for anonymity, employment and even love. But one afternoon she plays her newest composition in a piano shop—and one man hears her and decides to right the wrong done her years ago. In the process, he learns to love her. Can this honorable duke—a man who fought for his country—neglect his duty, ignore his family’s wishes and marry a woman whose reputation is tarnished by the worst crime against the land he loves?
Masquerade with a Marquess, Book 3
Sophia di Contini sailed to England with one burning objective—to find her family’s precious art stolen by the Bonapartes. When Victor Cameron discovers her sneaking into his study, he's shocked at her appearance and silently curses his undying desire for her. But he cannot refuse her his help. Together, they learn that the past can be forgiven and that love is the most priceless treasure of all.
