Portia proved terrified, but brave through this, and I was liking her quite well. Anyhoo, natch, it’s lust at first sight. A Shocking Delight Want to Read Currently Reading Read. The final one actually made me angry, though, no contributed to the rating drop as explained above.

A Page turning sizzler packed full of fun! No Other Duke Will Do.

Luckily, unlike Cyn, Bryght is bever,ey to shine during the climax and the ending of his own story, but Rothgar is still a formidable presence. Fortunately for him, he is skilful and blessed with good luck — and he plans to marry a very rich widow as a back-up plan.

And really, what’s the point in reading girlpr0n if the actual pr0n part is kind of weird and fortunne I swear she must write these horrible kinky scenes and then build bo Oh gack, I didn’t think Beverly could stoop lower than having the heroine raped in the first chapter as the basis of lurve but now I realize she’s working out some weird kinks by writing fkrtune mysogynistic “romances.

It wasn’t exactly awful, and if I could I would go with 1.


Tempting Fortune (Malloren, book 2) by Jo Beverley

I would kinda bdverley to round my bsverley rating up to 4 stars because of the excellent use of Rothgar but there were quite a few moments where I was just very frustrated as a reader. The suspense in this one is of a much more personal nature than one would generally expect. She takes off on her wedding night with her childhood friend Fort to find her wayward brother who her powerful brother-in-law Rothgar might be ready to kill. Bryght recognizes her and realizes what has happened–apparently it’s not uncommon.

Winter Fire 7.

Tempting Fortune

He not only manages to win the bidding and rescue her from ruin, but he offers her the winnings if she’ll cooperate in her own rescue.

He’s as much of a gambler, really, but he’s saved by a magical “luck” that makes it okay both at the tables and in his “investments”. Will he find redemption? Fort, who hates Mallorens with good reason but he’s still a scumbag has the same idea.

And Nerissa, seeing that Bryght is taken with Portia, decides to use her for a little payback. Not that I bwverley see where she was coming from, but she didn’t have to be quite so combative.

Tempting Fortune (Malloren, #2) by Jo Beverley

The Viscount Needs a Veverley. Portia turns into a total fool just to keep the story moving Not quite the adventure of the first book, but still interesting.


Seriously, maybe I’m a bloody-minded bitch, but I needed to see a little karma. After graduation, they married on June 24, Elf is a delight. But I wish I could rewrite the 2nd half.

Emily and the Dark Angel. When the Scoundrel Sins.

I love a feisty heroine but not this stupid, blindly combative one. I look forward to seeing him again with anticipation! The Secret Duke And I had an additional issue with each main character.

And of course the hero Bryght this name made me grimace at every mentionbuys her to avoid her getting into some serious trouble. The lady doth protest too much, methinks. He’s forrtune very romantic hero.

Something Wicked 4. If you read the first book in the series you know Bryght was dispatched to this place to retrieve a dirty letter written by a woman he nearly married she jilted him for a richer, titled fellow to her lover.

Preview — Tempting Fortune by Bevsrley Beverley. Fast forward to London. I liked that Phoebe was spunky and irrepressible but for goodness’s sake, I wish she had an ounce or two of self-preservation or even selfishness. At least half the fixes she was in, I could think of ways she could avoid the train wreck. This book did that.
