Review

Praise for "Loving Lady Marcia"

"Kramer's unique take on the TV series The Brady Bunch is a delight: funny, sweet, sexy, smart, and more charming than the show. With Kramer's enchanting sense of humor, the blonde, lovely Brady girls and their irascible brothers, loving parents, and housekeeper Alice are off on a romp that rivals Shakespeare for a comedy of errors. Readers will be up all night before drifting off to dream of a love story like this."--"RT Book Reviews"

"Kramer scores with the inaugural House of Brady imbroglio...Though [she] includes her characteristic lighthearted touches, she's smart and confident enough to take her characters and their situations seriously, turning what could have been a one-line joke into a deep and appealing story." --"Publishers Weekly"Praise for Kieran Kramer's Impossible Bachelor series""

"When Harry Met Molly"

"A delectable debut...I simply adored it!"--Julia Quinn, #1 "New York Times "bestselling author of the Bridgerton series

"Clever banter, stellar pacing, and appealing, exceptionally well-drawn characters make this fresh, sexy, and gloriously funny debut a knockout and a perfect start to Kramer's Regency-set quartet." --"Library Journal" (starred review)

an exquisite debut!"--Kathryn Caskie, "New York Times" bestselling author

"Dukes To the Left Of Me, Princes to the Right"

"""Utterly charming and delightful with a twisted spy plot mixed in with Russian Royalty, unruly dogs and gossipy cooks." --"Publishers Weekly"

"Kramer's captivating Impossible Bachelors series returns with another memorable, well-crafted, deftly plotted story as enchanting and romantic as the first. There is great joy in her storytelling (and titles) that compel readers to smile and laugh with her characters. You'll be up all night until the satisfying conclusion to this delicious romance." --"RT Book Reviews", 4 1/2 Stars TOP PICK

SAY YES TO THE DUKE

Kieran Kramer

Janice Sherwood wants to marry for love, but she’s failed to make a match after two Seasons. Her parents, the Marquess and Marchioness of Brady, arrange to send her to the Duke of Halsey’s country estate as a short-term guest of his grandmother, the dowager, in hopes that she might win the duke’s affections. What they never could have imagined is that Janice would fall for the ruggedly handsome servant Luke, who lives in the stables and carries an air of mystery and temptation.

When Luke Callahan learns that he is the legitimate heir to a dukedom, he will stop at nothing to claim what is his. But first, he must begin a game of disguise to secure his rightful inheritance. Janice isn’t part of his plan. But by engaging her in this dance of deception, might he lose her forever?

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh yeah, I'd Say Yes To The Duke... 27 Aug 2013
By Anna's herding cats - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Say Yes to the Duke was a really delightful read. Kramer created a romance that tugged at my heart and had me aching hopeful that these two would find a way to be together despite Society's rules and expectations and being from different classes. The whole forbidden romance? It just kills me--gah it was so good! I love seeing true romance overcome the greatest of odds. And these two? They were wonderful.

I absolutely loved the characters. Janice is one of my all time favorite heroines. She really grew as a character and with each page I fell even more for her as she came into her own and took charge of things. She's kind and strong, doesn't hold her status over other people and is just an accepting and lovely woman who cares for others.

And Luke. Oh. My. Girly. Swoon. He's got an aura of power surrounding him that is so incredibly sexy. To the world he's a mere groom but he's actually the rightful heir to the dukedom and searching for proof at the Duke's estate. You could totally see him in the role of Duke but at the same time he's a bit unpolished. He's been a fighter. And a boxer. And lived a hard life on the streets but that rawness makes him even more yummy and exciting. He's also a rescuer of puppies. Be still my heart. <3

The two were so sweet together and were people I'd love to be around in real life. They had a couple steamy moments as well that were oh so very nice even though it didn't go "too far" for the majority of the book. Whew. Janice definitely didn't shy away from her sexual attraction and I loved that boldness about her. There was a nice bit of humor added to the mix as well that made it such a fun experience. And dang that cover...is gorgeous!

2.0 out of 5 stars No Spark 19 Sep 2013
By Julia Morgan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The premise is good and the characters were nice. The story just lacked that something. It was flat and there was no depth. I saw and felt no spark between the H and h. They just met and instantly started up but it always felt lacking in so many ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic Read 28 Aug 2013
By Anna Schlichting - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must admit to downloading this to my kindle as soon as it was released. I had thought to read it later in the day but made the mistake of opening it to take a peek. NOTHING got done until I had finished the book. I must say this author is fresh, creative, and extremely talented. I cannot wait for more of her books. I will not review the story, why? Because you must read it and enjoy it yourself. I can only say it is not a waste of time or money.

Thank you Ms. Kramer for sharing your talent with us.

Regards,
Anna

5.0 out of 5 stars I think this my fave in the series 27 Aug 2013
By Melody May - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
So, early this morning I finished Say Yes to the Duke, which is the third book in the House of Brady series by Kieran Kramer. I love Kieran's books, because I think they are a lot of fun to read. Say Yes to the Duke has the same charm as the previous books. However, with this story we will be focusing on Lady Janice Sherwood.

Always, living in the shadow of her beautiful older sister, Marcia and adorable little sister, Cynthia. Yes, Janice suffers from the middle child syndrome. Don't get me wrong she adores her sisters, but it's just hard being her at times. So, her parents thought it would be a good idea for her to go to the country and be Dowager Duchess of Halsey's guest. However, right before she gets there she has a bit of trouble and her carriage wheel breaks and she ends up getting a kiss from the groom. Not what she was planning. On top of it all the Dowager is having some mental issues where she thinks she's the queen at times. Eek.

Luke Callahan is trying to find a way to prove he's the legally the Duke of Halsey. However, he has one problem, proof. He knows it's somewhere, but doesn't know where to look. He manages to make an alliance with Janice to help him find a particular book, but doesn't tell her what this book contains. As they get to know each other, they start to fall for one another. Yet there is one problem, the current Duke of Halsey. Halsey sees that the groom is noticing Janice and figures why not get her for himself. Time is of the essence for all to become right in the land.

I loved the story. I thought it was a complete blast to read. I really have enjoyed how Kieran has made the Brady Bunch into a regency family. Yes, you do see some elements of the show, but she has made it as it's own little story. I love Janice and she's a neat character. Yes, she does the middle child thing, but not to the extreme. However, she just lacks the confidence in herself. So, she tends focus on how she plays second fiddle to her sisters and it's not until she talks to the Duchess when she's the queen and Luke when she starts to see her true worth. I love how she starts to develop her own character and comes out of the shadow of her books. Luke is a great character. He's a bit rough around the edges, because of life trials. However, he understands the importance of standing for what you truly believe in. Both of them almost makes sacrifices that jeopardizes them finding true love and let Halsey win the day. I will be honest, I was a little worry, but love conquers all. Kieran is a big believe in that "Love changes everything," and you do see it Say Yes to the Duke. So, if you have been following the Sherwood family, you won't want to miss the next installment. I think Janice's story is my favorite so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars Say Yes to the Duke, A Review for the Blog Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and Fantasy 30 Aug 2013
By Shauni - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Say Yes to the Duke is number three in Kieran Kramer's fabulous tribute to the Bradys.. I have to admit I giggle every time I read one of these books. Not because they are silly but because of the way Kieran combined 20th century trivia with 19th century romance.

For those of you who don't know the Bradys are a blended family.. The dad, a Marquess of Brady had three boys.. Gregory, Peter and Robert and the mom.. you guessed it.. had three girls, Marcia, Janice and Cynthia *grins* and yes they even have a maid named Alyce.

Say yes to the Duke is Lady Janice's book and yes there are some Marcia, Marcia, Marcia moments. Especially when she finds out that her reputation is questionable because of something Marcia had done.. And everyone knows Marcia has a pristine reputation..

Lady Janice Sherwood (don't forget who created the Brady Bunch.. Kieran had to give a nod to him as well) has been sent to the country by her parents, to visit the duchess, rather the dowager duchess. She was sent in a rather hodge podge fashion that made her question why they were all but tossing her out. Because Janice is insecure she believes for just a moment that they might just want her out of the way. She just didn't know why. Since she is there, Janice is determined to hide in the country for a month and then return home. Only thing is, life never goes according to plan. They had no sooner turned the corner onto the estate when the carriage wheel broke. Sending their driver ahead for help, Janice and her maid waited.. and were accosted by a very ungroomlike groom.. sexy, virile, intelligent.. ok, typical regency romance groom.. lol.. but this man was determined to scare them off. Hard to do with a broken wheel.

Luke Callahan was raised in an orphanage until he was 11 and then forced to flee for his life. Never even aware that the "nun" who cared for him was actually his mother in hiding. Years later he is called to the orphanage for help. It seems he is really the legitimate heir to a dukedom and has nothing to prove it. He knows there could be some form of proof in the family home so he disguises himself as a groom and ventures forth. Once he arrives he realizes all is not right and questionable individuals reside withing. But he is determined.. nothing is going to sway him from his righteous path.. that is until a modest miss arrives and he mistakes her for a soiled dove..

Say Yes is more than a romance it is a metamorphosis.. Both Janice and Luke have to look into themselves and decide if they like what they see.. and decide what to do about what they found. Janice decides that she is more than a daughter and a sister and is willing to live for love. To sacrifice it all for the man she loves. Luke on the other hand has to learn that there is more to him than just a disgruntled heir out for revenge. That love, in all it's forms can transform a man.

As they are evolving both must face the odd goings on in the main house and determine how to deal with them. A Duchess that has "spells" and sometimes thinks she's a queen. A Faux Duke who surrounds himself with sycophants and yet proposes marriage to the first woman who truly despises him.. Blackmail, murder, mystery and great tragedy hides within these walls and it's up to Janice and Luke to discover the secrets and bring them to life!!

A great read about an insecure girl who emerges into the woman she can be!! Thanks Kieran for yet another fun peak at those daring Brady's of the 1800's
