Witty banter, sexy story, good fun

I'm mad about Eloisa!

This book has witty dialogue, interesting characters, hot sex, historical and cultural references... It's really all a woman could ask for in a historical romance novel. I think I'm going to get my husband to read this one! (Winky face)

Oh, and the narrator is really, really excellent!

Strongly recommended.

Loved it!

This is the second Happily Ever After book. I am just loving this series. I thought it was going to be a typical regency romance with the Beauty and the Beast storyline, but James sensei adds so much more too it.

For example, I really don't care for unnecessary long sex scenes and IMHO the author has put in just enough with fun twists. In this series they were actually romantic as well as sensual and fits the story perfectly.

In this book the heroine Linnet(beauty) is almost faultless while the hero Piers is Dr.House of his time. He is a brilliant doctor but has no bedside manners, has horrible temper, is generally cranky and has a bad leg. I love the banter and battle of the wits that ensues between them.

Unlike the other regency novels there are no rivals, balls and the ton in this story. Instead there are sick patients, arguments and healing in the harsh but beautiful setting in Wales.

I just loved this happily ever after for adults! More please
