The Sinner Who Seduced Me

The Sinner Who Seduced MeJames Marlowe, has to go undercover to find a traitor and he will do his job at all costs. James didn’t expect to find the love of his life staring back at him or that she would be his only solution to finding the traitor.

Lady Clarissa Collins is a painter under one of the best painters. She will find herself in trouble when she faces James and he is a changed man. She will help with the problem but will be wary of ever trusting him again.

Stefanie Sloane’s third book to the Regency Rogues series is The Sinner Who Seduced Me. I liked the book. It stays true to the series with these spies in the book. There was a little more mystery and a lot more betrayal when it came to double agents.

The characters were interesting as they were both wounded and not able to trust each other completely, at least until everything is cleared between them. Clarissa was a strong character but it left her cold and not able to trust, especially the man she loved. James was full of deceit and because of this he was ruthless and guarded his heart. I liked that there was still passion even though it was hard for both of them to trust. There is a happy ending which gives our characters a second chance at love.

Persuasion

PersuasionAmelia Greystone loved Simon Grenville ten years ago but when she faces him at his wife’s funeral she knows her heart had not let him go all those years ago. Amelia will find a way to get into Simon’s life to help his children but she will find out much more on the man she used to know.

Simon Grenville, Earl of St. Just, is a double agent and thought he was safe for a little while. He will find himself struggling to keep himself and his children safe but he will find more than one obstacle when Amelia thrust herself into their lives.

Persuasion by Brenda Joyce was thrilling to read for me. I was instantly brought into the story with the scene from the prison and even though I am reading the second book from the series Spymaters’s Men I had no trouble following. I really enjoyed sitting down and reading the book.

Amelia was a character you loved as she was compassionate for anyone. She put her heart and soul into dealing with people and rarely thought about herself. She grows as a character with more backbone but kept the compassion. Simon was the complete opposite as he was dark and brooding as he cared for few as it would be a liability in his life. It was interesting to learn about Simon and his life and choices through this thoughts. Danger is at every turn in the book especially with Simon as a double agent.

The romance and passion were among the pages of book. What I thought was interesting was the actual act of sex was behind closed doors which I have not read in romance books for a while now. It was a change of pace which let you concentrate on the characters and the problems that were coming their way.

This series has me intrigued and I will definitely be looking into finding out more from the other two books from Spymasters Men.

Twelfth Night Secrets

Twelfth Night SecretsTwelfth Night Secrets from Jane Feather is certainly a holiday novel and one to enjoy even though it is past the holiday season. I had not thought I would read a holiday novel with romance but I found Feather and since I have liked her one series I figured to try it out.

Lady Harriet Devere was on a mission for the Ministry. She thought her work was done when her brother was killed but now they asked her to uncover the possibility of a double agent who was Nick’s partner. Uncovering what happened to her brother was priority but Harriet will be unnerved when she meets the supposed double agent.

Julius Forsythe, Earl of Marbury was taking this holiday time to complete a mission but he will soon find himself distracted and intrigued with Nick’s sister who he had heard plenty about. Julius would watch her but soon will have a hunch that Harriet knows more of what is going on as she starts to follow him.

I found myself reading this novel very fast. The plot was fun as with the characters. Twelfth Night Secrets led with a little mystery and some good steamy scenes. At first I figured there was going to be no sex as I found the novel following the older regency romances but I was wrong. As I have read before in her books I know that Feather does steamy scenes well and this holiday novel had it. I found myself liking the spy concept. It was cute and simple with intrigue as I wanted to find out who was responsible for Nick’s death and if Julius was a double agent. Twelfth Night Secrets was a wonderful holiday novel to read.

Blacklisted by Gena Showalter

High school senior Camille Robins and her best friend are determined to snag the attention of their crushes before graduation next month.  Armed with red-hot outfits and killer hair, the sneak into the hottest nightclub in town-which caters to the rich and famous, both human and alien.  They end up following Erik (who is human) and Silver (who isn’t) through a guarded door and are soon separated and under attack…and not the good kind.

Bad boy Erik spares Camille’s life, but the two are soon being chased by gun-toting Alien Investigation and Removal agents.  Camille’s more confused than ever because Erik’s finally showing real interest in her, but the agents are accusing him of dealing Onadyn-a drug that ruins human lives.  Suddenly, with the heat of his kiss lingering on her lips, Camille has to decide whose side she’s on…and whether she’s willing to put her life on the line to save Erik’s.

The fourth book of Alien Huntress series is Blacklisted.  This novel is a continuation of Red Handed set in the teen genre for Showalter.

I liked this novel not as much as the third book but this one was good to read.  The main character Erik is a fun character to read about.  The whole time you are thinking what is going on.  He is good, now he is bad.

The new girl, Camille is priceless.  She is a strong character and intriguing with her need to be with Erik.

I liked that you got to read about the young recruites who were now full on agents.

The fourth book was interesting and intriguing to read.  Showalter keeps her characters real and dynamic.
