5.0 out of 5 stars This is the way to write a series......
Wonderful book and a real page turner. It had humour and quirkiness and plenty of intense romance and most of all it is beautifully and sensitively written. Yes there was a slight problem (in the Kindle version at least) about the titles - Wareham and Balmain - but I was so involved in the story it never really bothered me. It's great how this series doesn't follow the...

that she also was bored by her (unofficial?) biography.

When asked, by this reviewer, about the part where it says that she only had two lovers - and one was her husband, the Countess of Wareham a.k.a Lady Balmain blushed prettily and did not elaborate how 2 lovers (well one really) made her famous as a skilled Courtesan. I also asked Lady Balmain why the use...

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely - fantastic series of books, 7 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The PennyRoyal Green series is fast becoming a must read of mine and this latest book is a great addition. Julie Ann Long has woven a wonderful group of characters in these novels, all quirky, humorous, passionate people and the plots do them justice. I wont go into detail on the plot of this one as it has been covered in other reviews but I loved the juxtaposition of the shunned disgraced countess and the "saintly" sinfully gorgeous vicar. Their struggle with an almost immediate passion for each other is an exciting pageturner and there are sufficient obstacles in their way to keep you interested to the last page. I sense we are coming towards the end of the series now (sob) and I will be sorry for that. However all the books are keepers in my opinion and this is certainly one. I enjoyed it very very much and am sure you will too.

3.0 out of 5 stars quite a good read, 3 Nov 2012
This review is from: A Notorious Countess Confesses: Pennyroyal Green Series (Mass Market Paperback)
possible spoiler I really enjoyed it but it was a little annoying with the mix up of her name and errors it makes me wonder how does such a great author not have a proper editing team ? But like her other reads she totally grabs you.I was disappointed that there was more about the area and its people and quite a bit repetition from the other books and please no more of the silly Collin song please!!! Which left little for the two for romance the first kiss way into 16/17 chapter was A WAIT TOO LONG!!!! love scenes TOO are very few but really easy to read i thoroughly enjoyed it !!!!!!!!!!!!we want more on the romance please ms Long rather than secondary characters with a thousand kids and dog and cows and sheep .My final comment is for Adam though yummy he sounded in a daze or haze all the time i would of liked him a little more alive i know he was a vicar but his disposition seem very holier than now almost trance like.i will keep reading ms Long i love the way she writes i wish she would balance out the book with more romance and less country life!!!well done though!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book with some confusion, 1 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I always enjoy Julie Anne Long books and this was no exception but a couple of points confused me.

1. In the previous Pennyroyal Green books Adam has been near mystical - this was alluded to and used as a plot device but was never really explored satisfactorily.

2. I have no idea what was going on with the titles for the Countess of Wareham or possibly Balmain...

4.0 out of 5 stars This isn't really a review..., 1 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...because I'm still in the middle of the book. It's hugely enjoyable, like all the author's books, but the publishers might want to check whether the female lead should be called 'Lady Wareham' or 'Lady Balmain'. At the moment her title is fluctuating between both for no apparent reason and it's rather distracting! I hope this only afflicts the Kindle version because at least that is easy to fix. Or perhaps there is a valid explanation for this anomaly that I've missed?
