Historical Romance Blast. + Giveaway. To Love A Libertine. by Liana LeFey., ARC Review.

When Miss Eden Lowther catches the eye of Lord Percival Falloure, Marquess of Tavistoke, she’s delighted, for his wicked lordship is anything but boring. The canny coquette who declined five suitors the season prior sets out to capture the infamous “Terror of the Ton” for keeps, but the man she finds behind the façade isn’t at all what she expects.

Having suffered heartbreak and humiliation two years ago, Lord Tavistoke is wary of love. But once on the market, always on the market until wed or dead. Desperate to throw London’s single ladies off the scent, Percy looks to reestablish his rotten reputation with a rousing scandal. His mark: Miss Eden Lowther, a tearing beauty reported to have left devastation in her wake last Season. If anyone has asked for ruination, it is the heartless “Hellion of Holker Hall”…

Eden and Percy soon find themselves falling dangerously in love, despite their fears and her family’s objections. But will love alone save them when a ruthless rival forces her hand?

Since the marriage of his best friend to a woman he once thought he loved,  Lord Percival Falloure the Marquess of Tavistoke has not been settled. All his old reprobate ways just bore him. He is heavily involved in dangerous investigations,  and while they keep him busy he is still unsatisfied.  It must be time to create a new scandal.  He has the dubious title as the Terror of the Ton . He has seduced married women, even left a cuckoo in someone else's nest. No innocent young miss would dare to be seen with the likes of him.
Miss Eden Lowther  can't believe her eyes when the one man she has secretly wanted since she was in the schoolroom seems to be interested in her. She has already refused several proposals this season and has been labeled heartless.
There is much more going on behind the scenes than first appears. Plots within plots and secrets and scandals. This is part of a series but can be easily read as a stand alone. I do love this hero,  a definite bad boy with a heat of gold and lots of courage.  I thoroughly enjoyed every page.

Liana loves to weave incendiary tales that capture the heart and the imagination, taking the reader out of the now and into another world. The glory and splendor of the 18th Century provides a lush, glittering backdrop for her fairy tale romances. It’s a time of sensuous lovers, passionate music, lavish royal courts and deadly intrigues.

Liana lives in Texas with her own dashing hero of nearly twenty years, their delightful progeny, one spoiled-rotten feline overlord, and several tanks of tropical fish. She’s been devouring historical romances since her early teens and is now delighted to be writing them for fellow enthusiasts.

A deep curiosity to know all of him welled inside of her. “Don’t you ever play?”
Surprised chased his features. “Play?”
“ know, the art of romping, laughing, and having untold fun?”
“Of course not,” he said stiffly.
“How sad,” she murmured.
He arched a brow. “I am a duke...we do not cavort in the dirt and grass.”
She stood and walked deeper into the shadows and smiled when he followed.
“That is a pity. I think I would enjoy very much you tumbling me into the grass.”
Intense dark eyes assessed her and Adel stepped closer to his heat. “Come play with me,” she said softly.

Series Name: It’s In His Kiss #2

Imprint: Entangled Select Historical


London, 1812

Captain Mikhail Abromovich would rather single-handedly face the entire French army than follow orders to deceive Anna, the woman of his heart, by feigning a courtship to hide his covert activities.

Ever since a gossip sheet revealed the details of her extensive dowry, Princess Anna Tarasova has been overrun by fortune-hunting lords. When her childhood sweetheart mysteriously appears in London and asks to court her, it seems too good to be true.

For Mikhail, who is both soldier and spy, being chosen to represent Russia in secret negotiations with Britain should be the assignment of a lifetime. But once his deception is revealed, he’s certain Anna won’t believe his love is real.

“…very distinctive…the romance is absolutely lovely!” –Monique, Goodreads


Misha watched as she leaned low over her mare’s neck and gave the horse free rein. He let out a whoop and took off after her, his much larger mount rapidly gaining ground. He had closed the distance to about ten feet when a fox, perhaps roused by the vibration of the horse’s hooves against the ground, dashed out of the bushes. His stallion barely glanced at the disturbance, but Anna’s horse shied away. She tilted to the right, and before she could regain her balance, her mare kicked at the fox, sending her hurtling to the left. His heart lurched, knowing he would not reach her in time to help.

Author Bio:

Ally has worked as a horse trainer, director of marketing and development, freelance proofreader, and a children's librarian, among other things. None of them were as awesome as writing romance novels (though the librarian gig came closest). She lives in Texas and is convinced her house is shrinking, possibly because she shares it with three kids, five dogs, a cat, a rabbit, and assorted reptiles. Oh, and her husband.

Ally likes to curse in Russian because very few people know what she's saying, and spends most of what would be her spare time letting dogs in and out of the house and shuttling kids around. She has many stories in her head looking for an opportunity to escape onto paper. She writes historical romance set in Regency England and Imperial Russia.
