Complex, deeply moving and worthwhile 6 May 2006
By ChefCheyanne - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This well done novel delivers a little more toughness in tone that is refreshing. Not only are the two lead characters unpredictable in the results of their relationship--rare in a romance novel!--but there are a good half-dozen supporting characters each memorable and written with personality and shading. The combination of international politics-Calcutta, India--plus an overlapping story of one of the leads set in Ireland really gives a depth to the writing as well as quite a few giggles when the infamous "F" word is delivered in an Irish accent. Took several times for me to catch that one!! Overall, great writing with a welcome twist.

exhilarating Victorian romantic suspense 29 Mar. 2006
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1873, David Donally is on his last mission for his country before retiring. He searches for stolen loot from a theft in India over nine years ago with the lone clue to its whereabouts a recently surfaced gem-laden earring. He questions Sheriff Skilling who sends his men to attack David. Afterward Skilling visits tall tough Lady Victoria Munro who realizes her past has found her. Instead of the booty he seeks, the earring leads David to the most beautiful woman he has ever known, his wife Meg Faraday, a woman he thought dead back in Calcutta.

Meg cannot believe her luck that the man she has avoided for years has found her and believes others will follow. David demands the truth of why she faked her death while Meg believes he betrayed their love when he pawned her to get at her father, a smuggler. Both still feel the heated attraction, but neither trusts the other. However, neither realizes that if they want to live, they need each other as someone else has plans for the treasure and killing an estranged couple is not a problem for this avaricious assailant.

ANGEL IN MY BED is an exhilarating Victorian romantic suspense tale starring two individuals burned by love as each assumes the other betrayed their relationship. The story line is action-packed as both struggles against their feelings while reluctantly joining forces to seek the jewels and to stop an unknown culprit from succeeding in putting them six feet under. Melody Thomas provides a fine nineteenth century thriller fueled by the distrustful lead couple needing one another to survive.

Another winner from Melody Thomas! 18 July 2006
By Bookworm - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Melody Thomas is an author that delivers a great read every time she puts a book on the shelf. Her stories and characters are interesting and passionate all the time. I picked up A Match Made in Scandal a year ago from a shelf in a drugstore. Melody Thomas was an author I'd never heard of so I had no great expectations that the book would be a worthwhile read. It turned out to be one of the best historical romances I've ever read. If you enjoy historical romance, you can never be disappointed with one of her books. She rates right up there with Julia London, Gaelen Foley and Julia Quinn.

Entertaining and captivating! 4 April 2006
By D. Lane - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
First you really NEED to read the other books by Melody Thomas. In My Heart, Must Have Been The Moonlight & A Match Made in Scandal.

The first half of Angel In My Bed not my favorite. David isn't the same David as the one I fell in love with in A Match Made in Scandal. He's cold and a arrogant jerk. I wanted to slap him and say don't you know what you throw away. How can you not see that Meg/Victoria is a good woman. But as the book goes on it the David I fell in love in A Match Made in Scandal. Angel In My Bed what love in a romance tons of DRAMA that flows well and very believable. I HATE books with drama that makes no sense and makes you think what the heck was that about.

This book had everything you need to create a good romance: a dashing hero, a beautiful heroine, a person who always seems to interfere with the hero and heroine, and, most of all...PASSION!
The love story is beautiful, passionate, and the action fast-paced and exciting. Well developed characters lead us through a fast paced story full of suspense and action. Melody Thomas draw me into the story. Engaging characters, attention to historical detail, and humorous dialogue will kept me reading long into the night. The interaction between the leads was great. There is enough conflict to make the story line interesting and not so much that your left wondering why they ever got together.

I would have like to have seen more members of David's family.

read because it was a 2nd chance story 22 Mar. 2009
By Vanessa - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
So I read this book because it was a second chance story. However, I felt that the romance aspect got lost in the "mystery story". It didn't feel so much like a romance. I've noticed that a lot with these stories though. There is so much else going on rather than focusing on the relationship I feel like I've been diverted into the spy/mystery/murder world. I guess if I wanted to read that genre I would have read a book like that.

I really don't like it when one of the characters is basically sentenced to death and there isn't a lot to do about it. Not sure of the laws back then, but come on . . . she brought him to the authorities attention!!! She was a young child when she was "forced" to do some of the things that she had to do. I don't believe that she killed that man! Did David ever acknowledge that? David did betray her though,but I guess all that is okay since he was doing if for the greater good, right????
