More About the Author

During her frequent travels to London, Liz always packs her pearls, her dancing slippers, and her whalebone corset, confident in the belief that eventually she will receive an invitation to a ball or a rout. Alas, none has been forthcoming. While waiting, however, she has managed to learn where all the damp, dark alleys and low public houses can be found.

Product Description

Review

Liz Carlyle weaves passion and intrigue with a master’s touch. (Karen Robards)

“Intriguing...engaging...an illicit delight.” (Stephanie Laurens)

“Carlyle’s lusciously rich characterization, inventive plot spiked with danger and unexpected twists, and deliciously dry sense of humor make The Bride Wore Scarlet a near-perfect read.” (Booklist (starred review))

“Carlyle delivers a fast-paced pleasure.” (BookPage)

From the Back Cover

Passion and secrets simmer behind the elegant façade of Victorian London in another deliciously intriguing novel featuring the mysterious men of the St. James Society.

Anaïs de Rohan has faced danger in her past, but never anything so great as posing as the new bride to one of the St. James Society's most magnetic—and ruthless—leaders. But Lord Bessett's bold challenge to prove herself worthy of joining his secret all-male society is impossible to resist. So she daringly agrees to travel with the enigmatic nobleman on a dangerous mission to save one of their own—a little girl with a frightening gift.

Soon intrigue swirls about them, drawing them ever closer. And Anaïs quickly realizes that the intimacy of sharing Lord Bessett's bedroom is proving a temptation impossible to resist. As for Bessett himself—well, he might be a soldier sworn to the Society, but he certainly isn't anyone's saint. . . .

I love Liz Carlyle's books and have read them all. However, I was disappointed with her last new novel, the first in this new Victorian set, paranormal series. This second book is a vast improvement with more action than the first book.

Here we have two main characters who are both the children of characters who appeared in her previous Regency/Georgian series.
Carlyle is obviously not going to be able to use this devise for all the books in this series. It would be just too much of a contrived coincidence for all the children of the Regency characters to be paranormal i.e. seers.

Here we have Anais de Rohan, Max de Rohan's (Not Quite a Gentleman) daughter. Max and his wife are 'away', and although they are mentioned several times, they do not actually appear, unfortunately. Max's Italian grandmother, has identified his daughter rather than his son, as being the next "Guardian". She is therefore trained from a child to fight etc. How her parents manage to miss this, heaven only knows. However, she has a big problem, Guardians are traditionally men and women are not allowed into the society.

However, the society has a problem. A French child, a strong seer, is being held in Brussels by a relative who wants to use her in order to gain enormous power. The British Guardians have been asked by their French brothers, to liberate her and her mother. The French have rented a house near to where the child is being held. The best hope is for one of the British Guardians with the help of a woman posing as his wife, to infiltrate the child's relative's house. That's where Anais comes in handy. She is promised that if she poses as Lord B's wife, then she will be accepted into the Guardian's society.

I'm not saying any more, as there won't be any point in you reading it. I enjoyed it.

I was disappointed by the first book in this series but this one is much better. The story was more riveting and the characters better developed. Not as great as her master pieces A Deal with the Devil, Beauty Like the Night or Two Little Lies but not every en-devour can be perfect.

I was on the lookout for a nice trashy novel to enjoy and thought this would hit the spot. I am glad to say it had enough romantic / sexy elements to satisfy that craving but was also well written with involving characters, interesting period features and humour. I have since purchased two more Liz Carlyle books, read and very much enjoyed one and am saving the other for the next time I need a good period romp.

A terrific combination of action,adventure and romance. Anais is a feisty heroine who really captures the imagination. The sword fight was wonderful and I loved the interaction between the main characters.
