March 4, 2014

Proper young ladies of the ton-especially ones who have very small dowries-are not encouraged to have an interest in intellectual pursuits. Indeed, the only thing they are encouraged to pursue is an eligible bachelor.

Preferably one with both a title and a fortune.

So, the headstrong, opinionated Sloane sisters must keep their passions a secret.

Ah, but secret passions are wont to lead a lady into trouble . . .

The youngest of the Hellions of High Street, Caro Sloane has watched her two sisters have exhilarating encounters with dashing heroes, and now she is longing for some excitement of her own. After all, how can she write truly passionate poetry until she has experienced a Grand Adventure? But that seems unlikely to happen as she’ll be spending the next few weeks in the quiet spa town of Bath, where nothing grand or adventurous ever happens . . . until she and her new friend Isobel are nearly abducted while walking on a quiet country road-only to be rescued by Alec McClellan, the moody and mysterious Scottish lord she met at Dunbar Castle.

Alec has come to England to deal with a treacherous betrayal and fears that his half-sister Isobel is in peril from an old enemy. Does he dare share his secrets with Caro? The bold and brave beauty leaves him no choice, and together they are quickly caught up in a swirl of dangerous intrigue . . . where fiery desire between them may ignite into the greatest danger of all.

MY THOUGHTS:

PASSIONATELY YOURS by Cara Elliott is an exciting Regency Historical Romance. #3 in the “Hellions of High Street”, but can be read as a stand alone. Although, I would recommend reading all three titles, starting with,”Sinfully Yours”, then, “Scandalously Yours”.

Three sisters, named “The Hellions of High Street” by the ton.

“Three very unconventional sisters with a passion for writing . . .”

“Olivia, the eldest, pens fiery political essays, Anna, the middle sister, writes racy romance novels and Caro, who is not quite out of the schoolroom, is a budding poet”

This is Caroline Sloane, the youngest Sloane sister and the poet, aka, Caro and  Alec McClellan, a Scottish Lord, she meet previously at Dunbar Castle, Scotland.

Another passionate Sloane sister, gets into trouble and must be rescued by her very own Scottish hero, Alex, who is a brooding Scot. Fast paced and full of passion, secrets, a bit of treason, danger, adventure, and romance. The perfect conclusion to the “Hellions of High Street” saga. With engaging characters and an intriguing storyline will keep you up all night turning pages.

Once again, Ms. Elliott has written a tale of passion and romance. A must read! A very enjoyable read! Gifted from the publisher.

RATING: 4.5

February 4, 2014 THE HELLIONS OF HIGH STREET SERIES CONTINUES WITH SINFULLY YOURS…

Proper young ladies of the ton-especially ones who have very small dowries-are not encouraged to have an interest in intellectual pursuits. Indeed, the only things they are encouraged to pursue are eligible bachelors. So, the headstrong Sloane sisters must keep their passions a secret. Ah, but secret passions are wont to lead a lady into trouble . . .

SINFULLY YOURS

After an eventful Season, Anna Sloane longs for some peace and quiet to pursue her writing. Though her plots might be full of harrowing adventure and heated passion, she’d much prefer to leave such exploits on the page rather than experience them in real life. Or so she thinks until she encounters the darkly dissolute-and gorgeously charming-Marquess of Davenport.

Davenport has a reputation as a notorious rake whose only forte is wanton seduction. However the real reason he’s a guest at the same remote Scottish castle has nothing to do with Anna . . . until a series of mysterious threats leave him no choice but to turn to her for help in stopping a dangerous conspiracy. As desire erupts between them, Davenport soon learns he’s not the only one using a carefully crafted image to hide his true talents. And he’s more than ready to show Anna that sometimes reality can be even better than her wildest

MY THOUGHTS:

SINFULLY YOURS by Cara Elliott is another exciting adventure of Regency Historical Romance set in England and Scotland. #2 in “The Hellions of High Street”, but can be read as a stand alone. See,Scandalously Yours (The Hellions of High Street)

This is Anna Sloane,the Marquess of Davenport and a house party in Scotland. A tale of romance, passion, and a dastardly villain or two. A Romantic comedy to be sure with lots of passion, and of course a bit of danger, a villain or two, a consipiracy and you have an awesome tale. Filled with secrets, betrayal, an assassination plot, and of course finding love. What more could you want in a romance? A wonderful romp though England and Scotland. Oh I forgot to mention England’s Home Office, a huge reward, and flying sparks between our Hellion of High Street, Anne and our sexy, notorious rake, Davenport.

What a wonderful Regency Historical Romance! I can hardly wait for Cara’s story, which is coming soon in “Passionately Yours”. These are the three “Hellions of High Street” and what a threesome they and their heroes are turning out to be. I love this series!

Ms. Elliott draws the reader into her stories with engaging, hilarious, albeit dangerous heroines and heroes and her intriguing, interesting, passionate storyline. Another tale, well done! I would highly recommend this story to anyone who enjoys Regency, suspense, danger, witty banter, and a great read. Received for an honest review from the publisher.
