    Historical Romance

    The Duke’s Fallen Angel by Amy Jarecki Devilish Dukes #1 Drake Chadwick, Duke of Ravenscar has built a fabulous theater that will provide ballet, opera and more to the elite of London. His first performance will star a ballerina – the best ballerina – in Europe. Well, imagine his surprise and dismay when the woman he is expecting does not appear with the ballet troupe and instead her understudy, Britannia “Bria” LeClair, is presented in her place. He is not happy and trying to figure out how to save face and prevent his theater from failing when he sees her dance…oh my! This book was a delight! Bria takes Drake’s words to heart and provides a performance that those in the audience will never forget and in so doing makes a name for herself. In spite of the adulation and fawning over her she remains true to what she believes is important and continues to work hard to present perfection each time she appears on stage. She also is in search of who her parents might be and uses two items left to her to inquire of those she meets. As the story progresses romance does occur between Drake and Bria in spite of the disparity between their stations in society. When nefarious deeds begin occurring and Bria’s life is endangered Drake is made fully aware of just how much Bria has come to mean to him and is willing to do anything to make sure she will remain at his side. This is a story I could not put down. Finding out that the author knows not only the history of the era but knows ballet well was readily apparent as I read. I cannot wait to read what will happen next in the book to follow and wonder who will star in it as I type this review. Did I enjoy this book? Definitely! Will I read more in this series? Without a doubt! Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Romantic, full of feeling and a passion for dance.

    This story kept me turning the pages. I loved Bri's grace and innocence, and her determination to find out about her past. Drake was a bit of a bully in the beginning, but he grew on me. Once he realized what was important, he showed his true colors. There are several wonderful secondary characters, as well as a couple not-so-nice ones. I felt the love of dance through both Bri and Drake's eyes and feelings. I highly recommend this story. This is my unsolicited review.

    Wonderful!!

    London 1833 As I turned the last page of this wonderful story, I could only smile and be glad I read the entire book through this afternoon. Amy Jarecki has ventured into Georgian England, while expertly combining her historical knowledge with romance and intrigue to bring two unexpected people together. Drake, Duke of Ravenscar had invested a fortune in a London theater and intended to bring a famous ballerina and her troupe for the opening weeks. But instead he gets her understudy who has yet to prove herself. He is so angry and knows that the theater will fail without the lead ballerina. Britannia LeClair takes the role and wants only to give her best and make her debut. A foundling, she is determined to find her birth parents who had given her up long ago. She only had a couple of clues but has puts out inquiries when she gets to London. When they lock eyes on each other, there is a definite spark and as Drake sees her dance, he is truly mesmerized. But danger lurks as Britannia receives threats and accidents that were not really accidental. Step back in time and lose yourself in a story that will keep you turning the pages as fast as you can. I truly cannot wait for more in this series and you will love it too!!

    The Dukes Fallsen Angel

    By Amy Jarecki The Duke of Ravenscar had intended on having the most acclaimed ballerina in the civilized world to open his theater however sometimes things don't always go as one would want them to. When the ship arrives it has only an understudy and Drake is convinced the fortune he has invested in his theater will be forfeit. That is until he sees the understudy dance. Britannia LeClair arrives in London more then excited to be performing the lead in La Sylphide. As a foundling she has had to work harder than anyone in the corps. At last as her debut in London proves her worth despite her lowly birth. Then she meets the smoldering gaze of the Duke of Ravenscar. Britianna is determined not to become anyone's mistress she keeps the Duke at arms length while she trys to uncover the mystery of her parentage. She only has a miniature painting and a monogrammed hankercheif to make her inquiries by and they lead to a series of escalating accidents and threats to her life. When Drake realizes Britannia is in danger, he will do anything possible to protect her. That is if Britannia will let him. As they traverse through the mire of skulduggery and hidden shame, events will unravel and endanger them both. Will the truth prove worth uncovering, or will it sever the deep love that has come to bond their very souls and bring them ever closer. This is Amy Jarecki's first time writing Georgin History and it was incredible. I was hooked from the minute I picked up the book to the very end an end. An end that I was sad to see. Ms Jarecki's characters were fresh and I adored most of them. As I read the words it was like watching a motion picture of the book. I could actually see the Dukes beautifully bright blue eyes like they were in front of me and I could see Britianna doing ballet up on stage. This was a novel that had so many unexpected twists and turns that I was constantly amazed. I would highly recommend this book to historical romance fans everywhere.
