    Complexities that blend beautifully

    Complex characters that seem at opposite but blend beautifully without losing their true self. I thoroughly enjoy the read. Thank you Miss Sebastian.

    Surprisingly Wonderful

    I loved this one and read it pretty much in one sitting. I was nervous about Courtney’s character because I’m not a big Rake or Rogue fan but I ended up loving his newly found desire to live a better life. The writing was absolutely fantastic and just sucked me right into the story. There was all kinds of unexpected personality traits that keeps the reader on their toes. Courtney’s life had me desperate to give him a hug and make things better. He might have made his reputation but when he wanted to do better, he faced a lot of challenges. Julian was a perfectly stuffy, slightly pompous gentleman that acted as a great foil for Courtenay. The role reversals of Julian and Courtenay when they’re in the bedroom. I loved that they were opposite of what you’d expect from their outer personalities. However, Eleanor and Standish’s relationship was a bit off putting only because I’m a very up front person. Their behavior fits the time period of historical romance very well, but it’s the type of behavior that generally keeps me away from reading historical. All things considered though, they are side characters.

    Beautiful romance. Flawed Plot.

    This was a lovely story. I had been so intrigued by Julian and Courtenay in Book 2 that I was eager to see them together in Book 3. One, prim and proper, and the other the very image of hedonism. There was no warning for the light bondage and D/s elements of their relationship, but I felt it fitted appropriately into their personalities. I particularly loved the fact that Julian pushed himself out of his comfort zone, then pulled Courtenay out of his, to expose what he really wanted but was afraid to ask for. For me, the beauty of the couple is in the fact that Julian is deceptively clever and scheming, able to manipulate society to do what he wants, while Courtenay is a rogue who is actually longing for love and affection in all the wrong places. I thought the part with Julian and the gun (the first instance) was utter genius. The second time the same ploy was used felt overly elaborate and not as clever, perhaps because it had been used earlier. Courtenay was a secret romantic, but I would have loved to have Julian see him with Simon on page, and to see a little of Courtenay and Simon together, on page. Even at the end, he was barely present, and yet he was such a driving force of the novel. Personally, I feel like the excess 50 pages from Book 1 that made it feel too long, would have been put to good use here. Or, that nonsense with Eleanor and the devious plotting at the end could have been avoided, since neither made any sense, and the pages they took up could have been used to add in Simon, as well as exploring a little more of the sensational novel that the entire plot revolved around. A novel that we barely got to see anything about, and that didn't add up to the reaction everyone had of it. And while I utterly adored their love story, I find that the author is a bit confusing, to me. Book 1 was too long, had some plot issues; Book 2 was perfection, and now Book 3 has a mix of both. I can't decide whether I'll be reading the author again or not, from this series, because it's a little all over the place. For me, there are 2 huge issues with this book: Eleanor – Here, she becomes a simpering lovesick fool and I hated her almost entirely. I hated the way she treated Julian. The Brigand Prince – this was the book that supposedly brought shame to Courtenay, but I never understood WHY. It made no sense. There were also three little niggles that bugged me : 1) editing issues throughout, enough that I noticed them. Often repeat words or phrases. 2) the abrupt ending that felt a little bit too convenient and elaborate, 3) the Author's Note. I don't understand why it was needed. Why didn't Eleanor/Standish tell Courtenay, when discussing Julian's illness? Everything that was contained in the Author's Note could have been summed up into one line, making the Author's Note unnecessary. So, while I loved the romance of Julian and Courtenay, I would loved to have given this book 5* for that. But, Eleanor came along to ruin it, and the Brigand Prince left too many questions unanswered, and the editing issues (prevalent throughout the entire series) have left me with the unfortunate task of giving this 4* instead of the 5* it deserved. Favourite Quote “Save your breath. I'll pretend you're saying the foulest things imaginable and you can rest assured that I'm revolted,” Medlock said. “We'll save ourselves a good deal of trouble.”
