    mystery and romance

    Our wait for the next installment of Theresa Romain's Royal Rewards series is over. Book 4, Lady Notorious, hit bookshelves, real and on-line, today, 2-26-19. I found Lady Notorious to be a pleasing combination of mystery and romance. It's a hard line to walk and Ms Romain has done it beautifully. Cassandra Benton is a female Bow Street Runner, unofficially. We all know women are too delicate to do more than embroider pillowcases. *snort*. Cass has a twin brother, Charles, who's a pleasant man-child. He's full of I'll think of something and I'll figure it out later. Cass has been his investigative partner, without extra pay, for years now, pulling most of the weight. If left up to Charles they would most likely be out on their ears. While working a case Charles manages to break his leg, sidelining him for most of the book. He's super interesting and you'll get a kick out his character. George Godwin, Lord Northbrook, is the Marquess heir of the Duke of Ardmore. The Duke is one of the founding members of a very profitable tontine, a combination of wager and financial arrangement. The deal is winner take all, with all being the last man standing. There were a few deaths through the years but lately there has been an uptick in expirations. George hires the Benton's to protect his godfather while he looks after his father. After Charles' accident a plan is worked up for Cass to pretend to be the notorious cousin recently returned from the continent, a trap is set, attacks are made, mysteries are unraveled and love blossoms. One sticking point is upon their first meeting George had a brain fart and said Cass was plain. He didn't mean it that way and apologized but Cass is still a little hurt. While they're attracted to each other, Cass is prickly and George is a bumbling, tongue-tied professor type. These two have got to learn to speak up. I truly enjoyed this romping tale and hope you do too. Happy reading. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. #RoyalRewards #LadyNotorious @Netgalley @TheresaRomain @KesingtonPublishing

    Ah romance!

    George, Lord Northbrook, needs help: he fears his godfather's life might be in danger. However, the Bow Street Runner who was on the case, Charles Benton, got hurt. Again, Charles' twin sister Cassandra will have to do her brother's job; she knows the work, she is also a Runner, albeit unofficially. In order to gather information, Cass will go undercover as George's notorious cousin. If only a book blurb could aptly describe the magic that awaits us with starting a new novel by the incomparable Theresa Romain. LADY NOTORIOUS is like the first day of spring after a long, hard winter; like being enveloped in a cozy cashmere blanket: warm and elegant, soft and luxurious. The writing is exquisite, the dialogues are phenomenal and set the author apart from the masses. I found myself gigglin at Cass' clever repartees, then entranced by the inadvertently philosophical musings that eventually colour her and George's conversations. The author's attention to historical detail is astounding, enlightening, yet woven effortlessly into the narrative, particularly with regards to the Bow Street Runners and George's preoccupation with his camerae obscurae. Ms. Romain's descriptions are precise, and colourful; her fictional world bursting with life; and the characters are enthralling creations, even minor ones such as Augustus, Charles, and the most delightful Janey Trewes. The romance between George and Cass is the epitome of sensual loveliness, embodied in those fleeting touches and subtle looks; LADY NOTORIOUS is all show and no tell, and there is no higher compliment I could pay an author. Ms. Romain never rushes anything, and the easy pace allows the reader to fully embrace the story and the fabulous characters. What a marvelous and unforgettable world is that of LADY NOTORIOUS! I hope this series will go on for a long time, I honestly don't want to let go of those characters! Theresa Romain has written a book about how one can matter, how important it is to follow one's dreams, what love means, and that you should embrace who you are if you are to live, not merely exist. LADY NOTORIOUS is a delight for all the senses, and filled me with joy. A book so wonderful, no review could do it justice.

    Love, love, love this book!

    Lady Notorious is an outstanding historical romance by Theresa Romain that had this reader glued to the Kindle from start to finish. This! This is my six star book of the week, it's just that good. Ms. Romain has given readers a well-written book loaded with out-of-this-world characters. Usually, characters are my favorite part of the book, but with this book, my favorite part was the snappy dialog and character interaction. Kudos to Ms. Romain, it's perfect for this story. Cassandra and her brother are Bow Street Runners hired by George when he suspects people are being murdered over an old wager. Cass and George's story is loaded with drama, action, humor, sizzle and suspense. Lady Notorious captured me on page one and didn't turn set me free until the end and I can't wait for my next book by Theresa Romain. Lady Notorious is book 4 of the Royal Rewards Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
