I'm primarily a romance fan, and yes, I tend to be attracted to sleek, bold covers with attractive leads on them, with lashings of erotic/hot and steamy sex. I picked this up only as it was free on the Top 100 Kindle and had mention of a bit of romance, so that was enough for me, as I'm kind of running out of reading material at this time of year.

On top of this tale being my kind of romance, I got mystery, baddies, intrigue, secrets, lies, dry humour and wit, innuendo, some get-you-own-back situations, some cloak-and-dagger stuff, red herrings, white withcraft/good magick and frequent, hot, steamy, descriptive sex, all within an excellent tale.

The tale is about Sir Nick, a Knight who's part of some secret service organisation, who's been tasked with finding out how poison found its way into the food at the court of Queen Victoria, and he starts visiting apothecaries in the city of London. He walks into Shawe's and discovers the wife that he's been searching for for six years working behind the counter, and she's as shocked to see him - and to realise that the attraction between them is as strong as ever; cue many hot, steamy, erotic sex scenes (many of Isabelle's customers are whores, who've shared their experience with her, which makes Nick question what she's been doing in the last six years!).

Nick though that Isabelle left him for another man, but she'd in fact left him because of his frequent and unexplained absences. He couldn't tell her that he'd spent so much time during their marriage away because he was a spy, and as he was the one who'd exposed her crooked father, resulting in his imprisonment and death. Her father had been suspected of poisoning the Court, and now his daughter was possibly to face the same fate...

Having picked this from the free list I was very pleased to find that I found the book very easy to read. I found that the enjoyable story line flowed and the characters were believable. The only fault I would have to say was I felt that the ending could have done with a couple of more chapters just to finish of the story. Yet another introduction to a new author - will certainly read the next story in due course.

This book is just too stupid. I don't think people in the past talked openly about flaccid members in general conversation and especially in greeting others, 'How is your flaccid member today?!!! Shallow and inconceivable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting love story, with a bit of magic involved 8 April 2011
By MMM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the mystery plot, but mostly the complicated love story between the 2 main characters, both well built and relatable. This is not the usual hero or heroine but 2 people with strong and weak points trying to figure out themselves and their relationship, while the plot develops without being predictable or boring.

It includes a bit of 'paranormal', which makes the story more original and thrilling but this is not the main story line in the book.

All other secondary characters are also well built and developed, they never fall into stereotypes so the author keeps you guessing who is friend and who is a traitor, because they offer different angles and motivations and you get to peek into their pasts.

I recommend this novel to anyone looking for a not-so-long story with action, passion (explicit sex scenes, but they are important to understand the characters and their love story) and mystery. AND a bit of magic :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 9 April 2011
By alaetra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I noticed this book due to the price reduction, and, having exhausted most other highly-rated historical romances, I decided to give it a shot. I'm really glad I did. Nowadays I read the beginning of most romances and skip to the end because the major conflict is so overblown. This book kept my interest. The problem between the hero and the heroine is their keeping of secrets. It was nice to see them mature together (the hero a little later than the heroine) and build a new life together. I never felt like the author was trying to draw out the conflict. The book is tightly written, and the heroine is neither silly nor incapable. The hero and the heroine are really worthy of each other and their love at the end. The magic didn't detract from the romance (a problem that leads me to avoid most paranormal romances), and in fact seemed to come in handy sometimes even if it was portrayed as mostly a handicap.
1.0 out of 5 stars Predictable, boring 11 Dec. 2013
By K Dub - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am amazed how many books receive a high level of stars and are just awful! I am decidedly no critic, however I have to say something when the decision for me to purchase a book or not hinges mostly on reviews. This book somehow received a high level of four to five star reviews, it couldn't have been based on depth, dialogue, plot, or characters. Page after page of filler dialogue, so modern it negated any claim or feel of historical fiction. A story line so mundane I found myself rolling my eyes in agony just waiting for the predictable ending. I was even looking forward to the paranormal twist, but felt as though I was reading a Darin and Samantha script of Bewitched. Almost to the point of hearing laugh-tracks in my head. I only persevered because I had spent money on this book. While reviews of course, are ones opinion, I feel obligated to speak out and warn the next casual reader that may make their choice to purchase a book or not based on reviews, there are far better ways to spend your time.

4.0 out of 5 stars some romance, some history, a pretty good mystery 26 Nov. 2013
By Cypherpunk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm always a little suspect of historical romance novels. I read the occasional romance novel, if it's particularly funny or well-written, but more often than not, it's a weak story interspersed with random sex scenes. I have no objection to a quality sex scene, if it fits a story, but I can't stand books that are just excuses for them.
This novel is quite the opposite. The main characters are sometimes a bit idiotic in their inability to come to terms, but the underlying mystery is solid; the characters are otherwise interesting; the novel was fairly difficult to put down, once I got into it. I questioned the reactions to the revelation that the main character was a witch, and I would have liked to see a bit more information about apothecaries and that time period, because both are quite interesting. I don't think it would take much revision to take this from a pretty good novel to a very good one.
I'd rate it as follows: mystery-4, romance-3, fantasy (magic)-2.5, historical-3. In the end, I liked it, and I'll look for more from this author. I'd love to see her revise a bit more and write a great novel. She's off to a solid start.
3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 29 Aug. 2012
By Erin Davies - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Just my opinion, but I don't think drawing comparison to Gabaldon or Gregory was the way to go here. C.J. Archer's Honor Bound is good, definitely worth the 2.99 it is currently listed for on Amazon, but, and I don't mean this to sound snarky, it doesn't have a thing on Outlander or The Queen's Fool. Even as a tease the line seems a just tad ostentatious. Again, not trying to be discouraging or demeaning, just offering up a little perspective.

That being said, I liked this one. It took a while to figure that out, but I got there. I spent a lot of time wondering when Isabel's secret was going to be incorporated into the plot and that sort of put a damper on my enthusiasm for the rest of the story. Up to the halfway point Isabel is working as an apothecary's assistant, trying to convince herself she can live a normal life, refusing to use or even acknowledge her abilities. I was about to give up hope and then, there it was. Not only that, it wasn't presented half-heartedly in some cheese filled plot twist. No, it was beautifully incorporated as an essential aspect of book. I was pretty impressed, and no, I'm not just saying this to make up for my earlier comments. I stand by both one hundred percent.

Archer's love birds possess some very modern sensibilities, I personally like period personalities to fit the era of their story, but beyond that I can't fault the book. Not about shout Archer's praises from the rooftop or anything but I'm certainly up for the second installment of the series.
