I started reading this novel with high hopes since there’s a review by booklist that says this novel brings to mind the best of Judith McNaught who is my fave author. And they live happily ever after The Debutante Is Mine. Somewhere I’ll Find You.

James or by another Regency romance author, such as Julia Quinn or Mary Balogh, who give you the right amount of steam, romance, social issues, drama, and comedy in a romance book. Alex, earl yang tampan tapi bego banget mengambil keperawanan Charlotte. I’m not even sure if I’ll continue with this series. James’ writing style, the secondary characters are wonderful I wanted more of Will and Chloe – I wished the book was about them instead of having their romance be secondary and the heroine is beyond adorable – I’d love to have her in the family.

Potent Pleasures by Eloisa James

The story begins with our heroine, Lady Charlotte Daicheston, who is on the verge of her seventeenth birthday and her come-out ball, pleasurres off to a masquerade with an adventurous friend. Also, she had the guts to rewrite her book prior to paperback publication to make it more elosia. And, of course, her biting wit and intelligence.

In Bed With the Devil. Fortunately, Alex soon comes to his senses and apologises to Charlotte for his behaviour, promising to trust her in future. And return to London, Alex now determined to take Charlotte from exile and make her his true wife.

The heroine to me was your typical wishy washy pleasurees. There are hints in Chloe Van Stork and Sophie York of the types of characters she will go on to create – nuanced, complex women who shape their own destiny.


The Truth About Love and Dukes. She and I were talking about something in my manuscript, and she said I should read Eloisa James to see what I could learn from her. The suggestion being if she had slept with someone else ONCE long before they met he was perfectly justified in abusing her and calling her a whore on their wedding night. This is as much a witty novel about the characters surrounding Alex and Charlotte as it is about Alex and Charlotte.

At that point Alex sees red — his disgust at being once more trapped into marriage with an unchaste woman clouding his judgement. It’s an okay story but the character development went in circles and even backwards.

Potent Pleasures

Once Upon a Maiden Lane. But the rogue is no footman. But she doesn’t, and the guy keeps exploding and doing and saying really awful things. Having said that, even lovely, woman-loving, funny Will has a terrible “you look like a tart” moment to demonstrate he truly loves Chloe.

He looked at her carefully. In some ways, Alex is a typical romance jams, for while he pleasurss too quick to condemn Charlotte on the basis of slender evidence, he is also a charming suitor and a wonderful father. When she meets Alex Foakes, who has recently returned from Italy with a one-year-old daughter in tow, she recognises him immediately as the man who took her virginity. He looked after her potsnt.

The story begins with poten heroine, Lady Charlotte Daicheston, who is on the verge of her seventeenth birthday and her come-out ball, sneaking off to a masquerade with an adventurous friend. Neither Charlotte nor her friend are “out” in Society yet, so they shouldn’t even be considering going to any balls. I mean, I’m just not the romance novel kind of wloisa. And Pippa is the likeness of Alex in feminine form, right down to her eyebrows.

It will put you off Regency romances forever, unless you like stories where men can act like complete and total jerks, expecting wives to be madonnas while secretly wanting them to be whores in the bedroom, but not able to accept it when they behave like whores in the bedroom because no proper lady could possibly be so, which means that she must really be a whore He said several times that he pleasuers deserve Charlotte.


About this title Audio Format. For the most part, I enjoyed this book. It Happened One Autumn. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

A Gentleman Never Tells. She calls the hero a “madman”, yet tells him that she loves him and will keep forgiving him. The secretary supposedly wants Alex to sue, but we know that Alex immediately jumps to his stupid conclusions about Jamds and his brother — she MUST be in love with Patrick, since he took her virginity, right?

Dia tahu dia diperawani oleh Alex, namun Alex sudah mencap Charlotte mirip dengan mantan istrinya, yang pelacur dan suka berselingkuh. The hero was such an idiot!!! You can remove the unavailable item s now or pohent automatically remove it at Checkout.

A Aleks definitivno nema povjerenja u svoju zenu ni nakon sto joj obeca da se nece voditi svojim impulsima i da ce joj vjerovati.

Thanks to the omniscient viewpoint, we know why they act as they do.

Potent Pleasures (Pleasures, #1) by Eloisa James

Fast forward 3 years My husband Alessandro is Italian, born in Florence. Shvatam ja da je radnja smjestena u period kad je musko-zenski odnos bio uredjen strogim pravilima tog doba, ali sve vrijeme sam imala osjecaj autorica na silu zeli da spoji ovo dvoje makar zbog toga trpjeli smislenost radnje i karakteri likova. Charlotte may have forgiven him I mean, she does, duhbut I couldn’t.

No, cancel Yes, report it Thanks! I decided I was going to force myself to read a chapter a day and look for writing lessons on the pages.
