Read The Lady Hellion
Out uint s work for the government as a code breaker which doesn t add much to the overall story and is another instance of the author over egging the pudding as I found with The Courtesan Duchess and I did get rather tired of Sophie s refusal to acknowledge the danger to which she repeatedly subjects herself uint is a one of my favourite kinds of hero the beta with a take charge streak but he s wasted here There s a fair amount of chemistry between the couple but ultimately the story wasn t strong enough for me to be able Lady Sophia Barnes is a head strong and independent who wants to ive her Thoughtful Interaction Design life her way In the times when woman don t have many choices She has to work with herimitations Lady So Great Book Great Series Highly recommend them all audible reviewWow this story was probably my favorite of the entire series and they are all very good I really enjoyed the heroine She was smart spunky daring beautiful and just a joy I also really enjoyed the hero He was just great I A course in Game Theory loved that his character was handsome smart and a bit flawed with his anxiety issues The chemistry between these two was great Genuine real and very hot and steamy Yes there are some very well written hot and steamy sex scenes but not over the topThe storyine and plot was great There is a serial killer on the Topless Cellist loose and our heroine has take it upon herself to find out who the culprit is Very good storyine And the killer that was a surprise for sure I was glad to see the characters from the previous books show up That was nice This story is fool of dialogue Lots and The Wild Queen (Young Royals, lots of it Which made the story even better Not full of angst or any of that nonsense I really have enjoyed this author so much As for the narration It seemed to get better as the books went on I do think she still needs to work on her mens voices for sure the odd thing was the voice she used for Sophia when she was dressed as a man investigating was better than the hero s voice She should use that voice for her hero s She does do all the cockney voices wellike Alice her maid The reading voice was Tax Progressivity and Income Inequality less robotic too I highly recommend this series 100% I hope to see of her books on audible in the future My Favorite OneI veoved all the Wicked Deceptions book and this is by far my favorite uint believes himself broken but as we know today PTSD is not untreatable And Sophie is by far an unconventional heroine While uint isn t the reformed rogue or the manly man that Nick and Simon he is definitely my favorite hero of this seriesHowever I have high hopes for the Scotsman MacLean and hope he gets a book soon If you have been reading the first two novels in Ms Joanna Shupe s wickedly entertaining Wicked Deceptions series then you have been just as anxious as myself in Learning and Development learning of Lady Sophia Barnesatest adventures or should I say misadventures After all Arduino Development Cookbook lady Sophia has emerged as one of the most rebellious rabble rousers for justice Not that the ton knew what she was up to as she donned the persona of Sir Stephen while roaming London s sordid underbelly of gaming hell s and brothelsFrom the very beginning of this series there has been a malevolent evil stalking the innocentadies of the evenings who make a Mastering Gephi Network Visualization living working the brothels As her two best friends and co conspirators have settled into marriage and impending motherhood Sophia feels it is her duty to carry on and discover who is killing and maiming the women However as it unfolds playing the part of Sir Stephen hasanded Lady Sophia in somewhat of a jam as she has been called out to participate in a duel The only person she can call on to help her is Damien Beecham Viscount uint the one man who had broken her heart and whom she needs to teach her how to shoot a gunWhat Sophia didn t know is that uint has never gotten over her and is fearful he is on his own way to a break down just The Canadian Regime like his father who had gone mad He is trying his best to keep Lady Sophia at bay rather thanet her know just how much he wants her and will practically die in the process of trying to protect her In LADY HELLION Ms Shupe has outdid herself in creating the suspense and romance that has gained her such a following with her first two books in this series I really Testing Aircraft, Exploring Space loved the idea of using a hero who was going through his own very emotional battle to while trying to do all he could to protect the woman he could not openlyove With Sophia she felt that she would never be a ady wife so she took her chances of ruination should her alter ego be discovered Her self esteem had been destroyed along with her innocence years ago and her passionate nature was something that she had been made to feel ashamed of After all uint the one man she been oved above all others had gone ahead and proposed to someone else soon after she had kissed him so naturally he couldn t have felt anything for her With so much going on LADY HELLION simply sped along so many secrets betrayals miscommunication as well as humor and one very evil villain all added to a most entertaining read and a great ending to this marvelous series Bravo Ms Shupe can t wait to see what you come up with next Marilyn Rondeau. Pecially from the beautiful exasperating woman he’s never stopped wanting A woman with a perilously absurd reuest no ess For Damien is fighting a battle of his own one he wishes to keep hidden along with his feelings for Lady Sophia Yet that fight is as hopeless as stopping her outlandish plan Soon all uint knows for certain is that he will die trying to protect her.
The series Review copy provided by NetGalley I ve given this a C at AARThis is the final book in Ms Shupe s Wicked Deceptions trilogy in which the stories are inked by the three male protagonists who are Un Cadeau pour ma Femme long term friends I enjoyed the first book The Courtesan Duchess and felt Ms Shupe was an author to watch She writes well her characters are strongly drawn and she can certainly turn up the heat when called forYet I was aittle reluctant to pick up this book despite having enjoyed meeting its hero Damien Beecham Viscount uint in the previous stories My ack of enthusiasm was entirely due to the fact that the eponymous Lady Hellion spends a ot of time running about dressed as a man in order to pursue the investigations she undertakes and chicks in strides is my Shadow Bound least favourite trope in the entire canon of historical romance But I was keen to reacuaint myself with uint so I decided to suspend my disbelief and read The Lady Hellion anyway and it turned out to be an okay read if not an especially deep one The story picks up shortly after the previous bookeaves off and we Mapapansin Kaya? learn that uint who was shot trying to help Lady Maggie Hawkins escape the clutches of a murderous blackmailer is seriously ill Lady Sophie Barnes daughter of the Maruess of Ardington is vibrant beautiful unmarried and intends to remain so Now aged twenty eight Sophie believes that a youthful indiscretion has rendered her unfit for marriage a circumstance whiched to her rejecting the one suitor uint she truly cared for some years earlier In any case she doesn t want to surrender her independence or the purpose she has found in undertaking investigations on behalf of those who are too poor and insignificant to be able to seek justice for themselves most of whom are female servants or prostitutes Her investigations often take her into many of the Buntus Foclora less respectable parts of London so Sophie who is tall andithe and who wears her hair short disguises herself as a young man The author attempts to make it seem plausible that she manages to get away with it by mentioning that she disguises herself only at night because the ight is poorer and saying that Sophie has to alter the pitch of her voice but as anyone who istens to audiobooks as often as I do will know there is only so far even the most highly skilled vocal actress can go in making herself sound テンカウント 2 [Ten Count 2] like a man And I just couldn t buy the ease with which the daughter of a maruess is able to sneak in and out of her home at all hours of the day and night As I said the whole girl in breeches thing rarely works for me so instead I focused my attentions on Viscount uint who is a charming rumpled sexy geek of a hero and definitely the best thing about the bookFollowing his recovery from a serious fever uint has become something of a recluse finding himself unable to put a foot outside his home without turning into a uivering wreck As a boy he watched his father succumb to madness and now given the terrible fits he has begun to experience uint believes himself to be travelling the same path He reminded me rather of Dorian Camoys the hero of Loretta Chase s The Mad Earl s Bride in that respect it s easy for the reader to figure out what s wrong with him given our twenty first century viewpoint but all Damien knows is that he is subject to debilitating episodes and fears the worstHaving seen his father s condition destroy his mother uint knows that marriage is out of the uestion no matter how much he stillongs for Sophie When he Моя семья и другие звери; Птицы, звери и родственники learns of her secret doubleife and the reasons for it he is horrified not because of a sense of outraged propriety but because he fears for her safety fears which are borne out when she is set upon one night and almost killed Unable to accompany her and knowing she won t The Herd from 93rd listen to his pleas for her to stop uint instead agrees to help her by working behind the scenes and makes her promise to keep him fully informed and not to act without his consentThis is an odd set up a heroine who can t or won t stop putting herself into danger from which the hero is physically unable to extract her because he can teave his house Sophie is of course convinced that she will be able to fix uint an attitude I found incredibly patronising seeing as she has no idea that what he s really suffering from are severe panic attacks and he s convinced he s going round the bend so before the sexytimes commence he makes it clear he isn t planning to marry her It s true that uint is supposed to be eccentric and unconventional but I found it difficult to believe he would be THAT unconventional He s a gentleman and to have sex with a well bred young woman and have no intention of marrying her for whatever reason just doesn t ring true Mind you Ms Shupe gets some brownie points for writing a hero who uses contraception other than the withdrawal method And while I m on the subject the sex scenes are written in a way rather unusual for the genre instead of the usual euphemisms when we re in uint s PoV we get correct anatomical terms which while perhaps intended to indicate uint s erudition are not very sensual or romanticThere s a sub plot ab. The art of deception including the art of wearing trousers Now her fate is in her own hands along with a Manual for Planetary Leadership (Easy-to-Read Encyclopedia of the Spiritual Path) loaded gun All she needs is instruction on how to shoot it But only one person can help her Lord uint the man who broke her heart years ago The man she won’tet destroy her again The ast thing Damien Beecham Viscount uint needs is an intrusion on his privacy es.
The Lady Hellion is a prime example of the caricature historical romance novel It s also one of my most despised tropessecond chance romance This unbelievable plot has the heroine Lady Sophia Barnes as a spunky daring spinster who eads a double Dawnkeepers (The Nightkeepers, life as an aristocratic savior By night Sophia dresses as an man in order to scour brothels and investigate prostitute murders because hey theady just wants to help women and the poor The reality is that Sophie considers herself unmarriageable after giving her virginity to a rake who pumped and dumped her Now she has channeled her pain and insecurity into being a daring do gooder The hero Damien Beecham Viscount of uint has had feelings for Sophia since they shared kiss eons ago But he s an emotionally crippled man who thinks he s genetically cursed to go insane thereby he becomes an agoraphobic recluse Now I خدا بود و دیگر هیچ نبود like a tortured hero but one who is strong and doesn t wallow in self pity uint bordered on contemptableWhat reunites them is that since she s prowling the dangerous London streets at night wearing man clothes is not enough Sophia needs toearn how to handle a pistol So she turns to uint for help a man whose proposal she once rejected because of her secret Sophia character is not only stubborn and TSTL as the daughter of a maruis and member of the aristocracy she knew better than to give herself to a man with out a true marriage proposal Now she sneaks into uint s house for shooting Shemonah Perakim lessons insists on inserting her unwanted arse into hisife then decides to take him on as another of her missions of mercy Usually it the hero s magic tower of power that cures the traumatized heroine Here Damien is magically restored with Sophia s magical vajayjay These two just didn t spark at all The driver was Sophia s stubbornness to take it upon herself to fix Damien but it didn t feel 101 ways to improve your life like a deep seatedove I never cared for them as characters or as a couple When Damien girded his shriveled Torakoita ja panssarivaunuja loins enough to rouse himself from his exiled stupor and challenge Lord Robert to a duel the man who had deflowered and ridiculed Sophia for enjoying sex Damien validated Sophia s sensual and passionate nature Rejoice all around Like most romances miscommunication is the formulaic foundation to create obstacle and angst She was dealing with being ruined and he was trying to make her jealous by proposing to another woman It all backfired with her acting stupid whicheft Damien heartbroken and thinking Sophia rejected him because he was damaged If these two had just talked openly to each other it would have saved them both years of unnecessary distance and heartbreak But that would have reuired the author to come up with a plausible plotThis was not a badly written book just a ridiculous premise for the historical time period and I wouldn t re read it This was a good ending to the trilogy but wish we could have had a epi as I would have Fenton Glass Compendium liked to have known how uint was doingong term I do hope that JS is going to write McLean a story as he has been built to be such an intriguing character in the book PS I checked her website and she wrote a epi for the entire series but it got cut but is posted on her website under extras It was pretty sweet and I thank her for putting it up Is it amazing when you stumble into an exisite writer you didn t know you l ove and they ve already published a bunch of books The Lady Helloin has opened my eyes to This is a tough review to write because it has to go negative and I dislike writing negative reviews I try to be constructive but that s tough with this oneThe nuts and bolts of the writing on display here was alright I have really enjoyed this series and was really A Medieval Christmas looking forward to the third book because of the unusual uirky and uselessly cute hero Joanna Shupe is a talented new historical romance authorHowever once I read the blurb I knew this wouldn t be my favourite in the series The woman undercover in men s clothes trope is far and away myeast favourite in the genreOne of the biggest problems with this theme is that I can barely buy a regular woman of the Georgian era dressing as a man and going undercover in brothels But as the historical romance genre is obsessed with the aristocracy we have a daughter of nobility doing it and that s one massive anachronism too far for meI don t think this is a bad book not at all It still has the complex plotting and the good writing that I ve seen in the author s other work It s just that it was too unbelievable for me to really get into When I read books in this genre I sometimes stop and think What would Jane Austen s Elizabeth Bennet do And she definitely wouldn t have done anything the characters in this book didI l give the author props for the proper spelling of arse but must point out that outside of America it s knives and forks not forks and knivesIf you re fine with cross dressing heroines in your historical romances you l probably really enjoy this especially so if you don t stop and wonder how nobody noticed the man s voice was a woman s However it just wasn t my sort of book though I would strongly recommend the others in. Lady Sophia Barnes doesn’t take no for an answer Especially when she’s roaming London’s seedy undergrounddressed as a man A rabble rouser for justice Sophie’s atest mission is to fight for the rights of the poor the wretched and the employees at Madame Hartley’s brothel She’s not concerned about the criminals who will cross her path for Sophie has mastered.
