4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable read, 30 Jun 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Never Lie to a Lady (Mass Market Paperback)
Liz Carlyle is one of those authors who always delivers and I have kept all of her books. This is about a dissolute, half-Russian Marquis who meets his match in a formidable young business woman who is the sister of a Baron. Set in London in 1828, with a treason-based sub-plot, it makes the most of the glittering London social scene with lots of balls and other outings. Very original with lots of witty dialogue and some steamy but very romantic love scenes. The only reason I haven't given this 5 stars is because it slightly lacked tension between the hero and heroine. They fall for each other very quickly and there are no significant obstacles for them to overcome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent romance, 11 Jan 2009

This review is from: Never Lie to a Lady (Mass Market Paperback)
When I started this book I thought I was going to find it a bore especially when the characters start to address one another as "my dear" but I found this to be an excellent read & the reason was that besides having really good "interaction" between the hero/heroine in the form of when they meet, subsequent scenes, plot, scorching rendevous, brilliant speeches what made the whole story really plausible & a joy to read were the characters that surrounded them - from the valet that Nash has run-ins with, to his batty step-mamma, to Zee's partner & government office worker. LC wins hands down here amongst the authors as she takes time to weave the story around the other characters & so it makes one want to stay with these people in the story-line. Loved it, recommend it & look forward to reading Gareth's story. I would highly recommend this novel & anything that this author has written....

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it ... not a word of a lie, 20 Mar 2013
This review is from: Never Lie to a Lady (Mass Market Paperback)
Don't let this particular cover deceive you. It looks like a 1970's "Dynasty" type affair, but in actual fact proved to be a truly masterful and mysterious piece of work by a new author to me, Liz Carlyle (or at least she was new to me when I borrowed this book from the local library).

Where can just one stolen and illicit kiss in the moonlight lead?

Sybarite Stefan Nottingham, Lord Nash meets a beautiful lady (Xanthia Neville) on the terrace at the ball of Lord & Lady Sharpe. That stolen kiss leads on to not only a story of smuggling, intrigue and spies, but more importantly a building obsession between the two of them.

There were so many delightful characters woven through this tale, with lovely pieces of well written humour, that I fairly ripped through the pages.

A big 4.5 Star from me (if I could award half stars that is), and giddy enthusiasm to move on to the sequel 'Never Lie to a Duke' and see how some of the supporting characters go forward.

4.0 out of 5 stars pacy read, 17 May 2008

This review is from: Never Lie to a Lady (Mass Market Paperback)
i do agree with the other reviewer when they commented that the two lovers fall for each other very quickly so it is lacking at bit of tension between them to carry the story so the sub plot becomes more interesting and the romance is just the foil for the story. i did have an inkling as to who the criminals were but there was enough red herrings to keep you guessing. great read with some passion, crime and all the stuff that make historical romances!!!
