Royally Ever After

2.0 out of 5 stars Too short to be meaningful, 11 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It never took the 3 hrs described to read this book. It didn't take an hour. There was not enough story or time to develop the characters. Loretta Chase, Madeleine Hunter and Joanna Bourne are my favourite authors but this sort of publication lets the readers down. I do not think they should be lured into this kind of marketing and concentrate on the stunning books they are great at writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars another wonderful Julie Anne Long Book, 3 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
She not only has great storylines but the dialog is always stunning. Her characters have so much depth. The heroine has a much loved son by someone she loved deeply but who abandoned her. She is disowned by her family so is left to her own devices to support herself and her son. The hero is from a Royal family in France, most of whom were guillotined during the Revolution. He has been injured and is recuperating but he rightfully walks amidst the aristocracy. He also needs to reclaim his properties after the Revolution. They both know they cannot be together. No one writes unrequited love with the pathos that Miss London writes. The stunning dialog makes you laugh; the pathos makes you cry and the suspense makes you hold your breath.

Most of the authors I love have written a book or so that is a disappointment - not this author. Keep up the good work Julie Anne.

1.0 out of 5 stars S&M disguised as Historical Romance, 26 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a disgusting S&M writing. When the scenes were involved with unadulterated S&M the hero realised he was falling in love - "truly and deeply". Clearly the author has never had contact with love. The heroine (in spite of the novel portraying her as a self-sacrificing sister, etc) was the sorriest excuse for a woman with a brain in regard to the hero. The authors first books were very good, then they became wordy and boring beyond description, now they have sunk to the lowest common denominator. I give up on her. She certainly has writing ability but needs to rethink her plots and get some depth to her characters and storyline. If she wants us to be interested in her characters and at the very least like them she should do away with this "dominator" nonsense together with his chains, crops, beatings and box of sex toys.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable book, 5 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Don't Tempt Me (Kindle Edition)
You can't help but love Loretta Chase characters. Zoe, the youngest daughter of a noble family, had been kidnapped and kept in a Harem for 12 years. A very popular young Duke who feels he owes her father a great deal decides to help her to be re-established into the beaumonde. Zoe has learned some interesting things in the Harem. They are so much fun together. This is a very enjoyable book.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the author's best, 5 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Eleanor is rebelling about her brothers' over protectiveness and has negotiated more freedom. Her brother, the Duke, secretly engaged his good friend (a confirmed rake) to keep an eye on her. This was a case of having the fox taking care of the chicken with the expected results. Both the hero and heroine were strong likeable characters. I recommend this book for entertaining light read.

The book was on perfect condition. I owned a much earlier edition of this book when raising my children and it was amazing and was the reason for my success in breast feeding my children. I purchased this for a new mother. Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Metal case interfered with reception, 13 Feb. 2015

I thought it was lovely looking but it interfered with reception on my iPhone5. I now have an iPhone6Plus with a leather case. I would not consider a metal case again due to interference with reception.
