    WOW...WHAT A GREAT BOOK!

    Wow… What a great book! The Earl and the Reluctant Lady by Robyn DeHart is book 3 in the Lord of Vice series. This is my first book I have read of Robyn’s but it won’t be the last and of course I have to get book 1 and 2 in this series so I can catch up. There is nothing better than finding a new author and I so enjoyed this story. Though this book is a part of a series it can be read as a standalone. Robyn has created such wonderful regency characters that I found myself cheering for them. Her descriptions are right on for that era and so clear and easy to picture. The story has a scandalous mother, secret society, protection, a rake and a rogue, friendships, over protective brother, creating weapons, a secret job, skepticism, misunderstandings, kindness, caring, a secret admirer, an enemy, madness and yes, love. For me this was such a wonderful surprise on how much I enjoyed this story and I highly recommend this book!! ***This book was gifted to me and I am voluntarily reviewing.

    A charming story, but not my cup of tea

    It's a charming story, but there are things I just didn't like and somethings that went unanswered. I love a forbidden love that is forced together story like this. There's a bit of a mystery with someone threating the group and a man that wants her for himself that brings them together. I loved that he had loved her for so long and that everyone sees it so clearly. Her brother was just like I thought he would be when it came to her. I also loved her friends seeing what she wasn't seeing. To me, they just seemed mismatched and I didn't really get the passion between them that I would expect. The thing of needing to change him just rubs me the wrong way. I love a reformed rake/rogue, but the setting out to change him I don't like. The Ladies of Virtue group doesn't fully make sense to me because it's not explained enough. Agnus lives in the shadow of her mother and is constantly hounded by men thinking she is like her mother. She just wasn't my cup of tea because she came off cold most of the time. I didn't like how she was ready to take on things but then turned around and mad decisions that made no sense to her kind of character. Just a little too naive at times for me. Fletcher has been beaten down by his grandfather for years and only wants to prove himself. I loved him right away because he was so naturally charming and spoke his mind. He never doubted his feelings and fought for her when he needed to. I only wish the stuff about his grandfather had been explained because it would have made it easier to understand him at times. Overall it wasn't my kind of read, but I know many that would love this kind of story. Copy provided for an honest and voluntary review

    very lovely novel

    During her second London season, viscount's daughter Agnes Watkins is overshadowed by her own mother, who consistently seeks male attention for herself, relegating the socially awkward Agnes to the position of wallflower, much to her embarrassment. As such, Agnes has given up the hope of marrying, deciding to just stay single and avoid the lie that she believes love is. Fletcher Banks, the Earl of Wakefield, and elite spy, searching the ballrooms for a widow he is assigned to gather information from. Instead of finding the widow, he meets Agnes and is immediately captivated by her. Unfortunately, Agnes' brother happens to be the man in charge of doling out the assignments to the members of Fletcher's spy organization and he happens to hate Fletcher. Summarily warned off, Fletcher spends the next few years seducing secrets out of women, but never forgets Agnes. Meanwhile, Agnes, who thought Fletcher could be different, maintains her vow to never marry, becoming rather cynical and joining the Ladies of Virtue group to try to do some good in the world. Starting with convincing Fletcher to reform and give up his lustful ways. Fletcher flits from widow to widow giving and taking pleasure but nothing more, even though Agnes is the only one he wants, because he believes himself to be undeserving of love. Agnes hides her social awkwardness behind a seemingly cold facade and has convinced herself she doesn't believe in love because she doesn't want to end up life her parents, or more specifically like her mother. When a persistent admirer begins to frighten Agnes and threaten her safety, Fletcher realizes he must protect her at all costs, if only he can convince her to allow him. I really enjoyed this one, it's a quick read but it kept me engrossed and rooting for this couple. I'd highly recommend it. I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley. Thank you!

    Lovely Story

    This beautifully written story grabbed my heart and did not let go. Upon first sight, Fletcher, Earl of Wakefield saw her at a ball from a distance and knew he had to meet her. Unbeknownst to him, Agnes is the sister of the man who holds his job as a spy in his hands. Agnes is of course attracted to him as well, but with a warning he stays away and does not see her until three years later! A reputed rake and scoundrel, Fletcher plays his role well in getting information out of women for the good of the country. What you say? Well somebody has got to do it and he is a master of seduction. But when he sees Agnes again, he just cannot resist!! These two characters came alive with the wonderful words of Robyn Dehart. She captured my imagination with the storyline and I could not wait to see what happened! When they were together, sparks seemed to fly and they could not keep their feelings contained. Prepare to be delighted in this next installment of this amazing series!! I read this through NetGallery

    Love, love this book

    Agnes Watkins is the most beautiful lady in London, maybe even in England. The big problem is that Agnes' mother is jealous and wants the men who are would be suitors for Agnes. It doesn't matter if her mother is still married to her father. Fletcher, Earl of Wakefield meets Agnes at a ball. Since he is not in direct line to inherit a title and needs the money, he works for the Seven, an elite spy organization. His immediate superior happens to be Agnes' brother who is very protective of her and he threatens Fletcher that it would be bad if he pursues a relationship. He dances with her once a year at the ball where he met her. For three years he has wanted her, but has also spent that time, seducing other woman for their secrets. He is known as London's greatest lover. Someone is leaving disturbing notes for Agnes. Her brother finds out and leaves to check on a lead. He asks/threatens Fletcher to watch over her and to not touch her or he will make sure he will have no job. He has no choice but to agree. Agnes is one of The Ladies of Virtue who train in self defense and help keep crime off the streets. There is so much attraction between that cannot be denied. He proposes and she accepts. Then, Agnes gets kidnapped. Who can the kidnapper be? Will she be freed without harm? This book is very interesting. I love the Ladies of Virtue and the Seven. Both are subplots that add a lot to the story. I am looking forward to the rest of the books in this series. I received this book from Net Galley and Entangled Publishing for a honest review and no compensation otherwise. The opinions expressed are my own.
