Mio duca (2013)
4.15 of 5 Votes: 4
This book was very unexpected and quite brilliant. I've never read Julie Anne Long's books before, but I will definitely be reading more! The book was not what the blurb on the back described. The blurb suggested that the book would be intense and very focused on revenge. In fact, while the boo...
What I Did For a Duke (2011)
4.15 of 5 Votes: 3
Definitely a case of a book sneaking up and taking me totally by surprise. SO MANY tropes that I thought I would HATE it (starting with that terrible cover! And title! And the revenge plot! And...) but in actuality it was so very wonderful. Witty, honest and just all around lovely.Also I'm thinki...
Conquistare un marchese (2013)
4.11 of 5 Votes: 3
I liked how much I laughed out loud reading this book. It had some very funny parts. It took the hero a while to figure out he should do what would make him happy, not what would make the family holdings "whole" after his father squandered them.The hero also says I love you in a very moving way: ...
How the Marquess Was Won (2011)
4.11 of 5 Votes: 2
I really enjoyed this book. I was just so connected to the characters and I experienced this book like I used to when I first started the genre. The way their story progresses was magic and potent! I wish I could unread and reread it! Jules comes to tour a school and attend a party near by, Phoeb...
Come nessun altro (2008)
3.91 of 5 Votes: 1
In comparison to the first book in this series I would say this one is better in my opinion. The writing was much more clear and the story was easier to follow.The focus was much more on romance and I definitely appreciated this. The relationship between Cynthia and Miles felt very real and not a...
Like No Other Lover (2008)
3.92 of 5 Votes: 2
Minus one for the weird anti-Roma stereotypes (seriously, what was up with that?), but otherwise, generally decent. Miles (the perceptive explorer/naturalist who needs money for his next voyage) and Cynthia (accomplished at seeing the best in everyone, a charming woman who liked running the Londo...
Capitan Selvaggio (2013)
3.89 of 5 Votes: 3
Had to work quite hard to ignore all the wildly improbable things in this fantastical book. It is quite a romp!Violet was bored and shallow. She kept being described as smart, but I didn't see much evidence of it.Yet, while much of the story irritated me by being so unlikely, I found myself hig...
I Kissed an Earl (2010)
3.89 of 5 Votes: 4
It’s Violet’s turn. The opportunity to learn more about what happened surrounding Lyon was really fulfilling. I loved the fact that Captain Flint isn’t the typical Earl. He’s a bastard and was raised on the high seas by another captain, whose ship was destroyed by the fugitive Le Chat. Captain F...
Le confessioni di una contessa (2014)
4.01 of 5 Votes: 2
Oh my gosh guys, I didn't think I could love any of the Pennyroyal books as much as I loved What I Did for the Duke but this one was SO good! It started a little slower and so I thought it would be so-so but it kept building and their love story was more and more intense and I felt Just as desper...
Wyznania hrabiny (2014)
4.01 of 5 Votes: 4
I really loved this book. It wasn't perfect - the plot had a few moments that lost me, especially toward the end - but my god, can Julie Anne Long write characters. I've read almost all of her books, and the three most recent books are among my favorite romance novels of all time (How the Marque...
A Notorious Countess Confesses (2012)
4.01 of 5 Votes: 3
Overall, this was a good book. I liked the characters and the story, as well as how the author shined a light on "ruined women" of the Regency era, and how circumstances are a crazy thing.The only reason this lost a star is because while I knew this was a story about a vicar, I didn't like the c...
Cedere alla passione (2009)
3.6 of 5 Votes: 2
This book is a study on sexual tension. I couldn't have cared less about the weird plot of this book (something about naughty paintings, a secret society, and missing women). It all just seemed a vehicle the author uses to fling the hero and heroine together in close quarters so that they can bur...
Since the Surrender (2009)
3.6 of 5 Votes: 2
Man, the reviews had me really worried about the puppets! But seriously, don't even worry about them. They're just not much of a thing. There are a lot of other weird elements in here though, plenty of WTF? moments, and that's part of why this was a 3.5-star or 4-star and not higher.I really want...
Between the Devil and Ian Eversea (2014)
3.84 of 5 Votes: 4
Julie Anne Long's "Between the Devil and Ian Eversea" (#9 in the Pennyroyal Green series)  Aside from a couple of anachronisms (accordions had not been invented when the story takes place, sometime around 1815), and typos (the cook's name alternates pretty regularly between "Mrs. deWitt" and "Mis...
It Started With a Scandal (2000)
3.88 of 5 Votes: 3
3.5 stars.I enjoyed this beauty-and-the-beast plus fallen-women-becoming-a-servant story. It's rare that the father of the child never shows up, and I enjoyed this story. The way Philippe's attitude towards Elise changed throughout the book (from ringing to test her as a housekeeper to then just ...
