3 books in 1 what's not to love!
on 8 January 2015
I do love a good Sylvia Day book and this is three in one so even better. If you were born in this time it seems that being ravashed by a rake was the thing to do. Wicked bad gentlemen being tamed by there ladies (the only ones who can really control them - their perfect matches).
In 'Stolen Pleasures' you have pirate Captain Phoenix (Sebastian Blake) who finds out he has stolen his own bride Olivia Merrick. Bit of a shock to him and her when he lets her know. Fun adventures to be had on the sea. Who wouldn't want to be taken by a well built pirate.
In 'Lucien's Gamble' you have a sister that would do anything to help get her brother out of trouble. Even if that means dressing as a man and entering a gambling hall. Its a shame (or delight in the end) that Lady Julienne La Coeur can not disguise herself enough for Lucien Remington not to notice - think its how tight the trousers are. They have all sorts of naughty fun in the weeks that follow. The stakes are high though as Julienne is gambling with her heart to get the man she loves to admit he loves her in return.
In Her Mad Grace you have Hugh La Coeur sheltering a storm with the mad Duchess with only Charlotte to keep him company in the day and his bed warm at night ;). There wasn't a lot to the mystery to this one but as it is only a short read you couldn't drag it out for long. In the end you still have a hot little romance to get stuck into.
Well worth the read so if you like Sylvia's books then check this one out :)
