Lady Derring Takes a Lover The Palace of Rogues #1 Read & Download ↠ 4 review Lady Derring Takes a Lover The Palace of Rogues #1 Seeds of her liberation And she vows never again to place herself at the mercy of a manBut battle hardened Captain Tristan Hardy is nothing if not merciless When the charismatic naval hero tracks a notorious smuggler to a London boarding house known as the Rogue's Palace seducing the beautiful blue blood. Title Lady Derring Takes a LoverSeries The Palace of Rogues 1Author Julie Anne LongRelease date February 26 2019Cliffhanger NoGenre historical romanceThis is my first Julie Anne Long book I know I know Where have I been Thanks to my girl Astrid once again I ve found another author to faithfully follow in the genre I think this is going to be the year I fully get back into historical romance because I have been enjoying an amazing run in the past couple of months with them Julie Anne Long has such a distinct style to her writing that sets her apart from other authors I was honestly one of the most refreshing discoveries I ve had in a long time because of it This first book in the Palace of Rogues series centers around Countess Delilah and Captain Tristan Hardy Delilah has just been widowed and discovers that her husband has been keeping some very important things from her But then it doesn t really surprise her because she s always been treated as if she s just a means to an end A commodity for other people to make use of rather than seen for the bright and brave woman she is First she was auctioned off to the highest bidder to save her family from ruin and then she was only useful to her husband to produce an heir Spending so long feeling invisible has made her somewhat bitter towards men and even though she s in a desperate situation she can t help but feel like a caged bird who has finally been given its freedom No one particularly not her late husband had ever valued her for wits Oh but she possessed themShe has debt collectors knocking at her door to repossess anything they can get their hands on Her meeting with his solicitor is already grim and then things sink comically worse when her husband s mistress barges in asking for her share of his estate To say she was having a bad day would be an understatement This is where you get the first taste of the heroine s strong character because not only does she not fall apart but she seeks out her husband s mistress and invites her to become her partner in a risky business venture Lady Derring is the proud new owner of a shabby property in the sketchy part of London the sole item she gains from her unsatisfactory marriage to a man fifteen years her senior It may be filthy and neglected but it s hers Previously an establishment of uestionable morality named the Palace of Rogues she envisions transforming it to a respectable boarding house called The Grand Palace on the Thames That in itself is pretty funny but they way Delilah always tells everyone Here at the Grand Palace on the Thames in such a ceremonious way always made me laugh She so seriously expected people to believe that the boarding house isn t in a crime ridden neighborhood by the docks but rather an elite place where anyone who is anyone wanted to stay The rules they concocted to make the place comfortable for the guests were also hilarious especially the swear jar and the rules forcing guests to eat and spend time together Captain Tristan is as taciturn and unsociable as they come so it was highly entertaining to see him attempting to converse with the uirky characters staying there Tristan is an unobtrusive character that sneaks up on you His droll dry humor is snarky but not in an in your face kind of way As a career military man he s very strictly regimented staunchly honorable and self possessed Then his playful side comes out by the beautiful Delilah and you see him blooming right before your very eyes She s able to loosen the tight control over himself that he s held so rigidly for his entire life He isn t the type to reveal what he s feeling so when she earns a tilted smile or a slip in his composure it s meaningful When he d devilishly tease her in that subtle sarcastic way of his I couldn t get enough I don t suppose you often lose at anything Captain Hardy Not since that one time lo these many years ago You and I are very alike I think Captain Hardy Ah Does your beard begin to darken at about five o clock too The romance is a slow burn build I m definitely a fan of that because the tension and chemistry hold a lot of heat when they re forced to simmer These two had a fantastic burn that built in intensity in a way that I wasn t expecting They re all about the teasing hot glances and daring comments that make the other just a little weak kneed Though it did take a while to surface you did see the attraction and her effect on him immediately And he s totally incapable of understanding the unfamiliar feelings he stirs because he s never had that type of reaction to a woman before She makes him feel out of control and way out of his comfort zone I loved all of the characters even Angeliue She and Delilah built an unlikely friendship and they were very much opposites in personality but they also felt a bond because of how they d been wronged by the men they loved The boardinghouse was their opportunity to stand on their own two feet and work for their independence so they d never have to be dependent on anyone ever again Delilah s lingering naivety and desire to see the world through a rose colored glasses was in direct contrast to Angeliue s cynical and distrustful nature Though she wasn t unkind she hadn t been as sheltered as her friend and she d experienced a world of heartache I m very excited to read her book after meeting her hero at the end of the storyThere was a little mystery involved which I thought was well done As the Captain works in secret to ferret out the criminal he s hunting he realizes that the end of his investigation could break sweet Delilah in ways he didn t intend I loved this one so much I only shaved a bit off my rating because it did take me a little while to engage in the beginning and get sucked in It was far from boring but it did feel a little slow and that s somewhat expected with the first in a series Also I would have liked to learn about his past because we only learned the bare minimum and I was expecting him to open up and reveal about himself Overall I loved Tristan and Delilah together and he even showed a romantic side in the end that I had no idea he had in him If you re looking for a new HR series to follow give this one a shot I ll definitely be reading the next installment as well as exploring her backlist as soon as I can Never had pleasure so owned him So fully consumed him Never had it so thoroughly relieved him if momentarily of the burden of being himself the man who held up the worldFOLLOW SMOKIN HOT BOOK BLOG ON

Lady Derring Takes a Lover The Palace of Rogues #1 Read & Download ↠ 4 review Lady Derring Takes a Lover The Palace of Rogues #1 Ed proprietress to get his man seems like a small sacrificeThey both believe love is a myth But a desire beyond reason threatens to destroy the armor around their hearts Now a shattering decision looms Will Tristan betray his own code of honoror choose a love that might be the truest thing he's ever know. This was everything an HR should be subtle charming moving sensual and witty When Lady Delilah Derring is widowed she discovers that she is not the only one who has been left penniless and alone as she discovers her husband s estate was ruined His mistress is also in a similar position and the two women have the misfortune or so she believes it to be initially to meet at the solicitor s office where he has unctuously just informed her of her impecunious state Her shock at there even being a mistress is tempered by a feeling of kinship and when the women run into each other at an inn next to the only piece of property Delilah has been left with a run down former brothel on the docks they begin an unlikely partnership How refreshing to see them work together instead of fighting over a man who was never worth it in the first placeFirstly I had to leave my prejudices at the door I don t normally enjoy books about mistresses as the power imbalance always makes me cross In this case both women are intelligent sensitive people who have been battered by life and are determined to bounce back Most of all they plan to do it without a man Having learned the hard way that a woman should not depend on a man because he will invariably fail them they turn the building into a boarding house and work hard to make the business a successAt the same time the handsome but hardened Captain Hardy is hunting the smuggling gang that caused the death of a whole family when they burnt down the family s house This all because the father refused to allow them to use his property for their smuggling activitiesI have to say the slow burn and sexual tension in this story was masterful The contrast between this and a lot of CR which is often all about the ONS and the determination to hand in the V card What the hell are these authors thinking even the expression V card is repugnant is stark And welcomeDelilah and her friend Angeliue s relationship had an intriguing dynamic with the cynical and disillusioned Angeliue a foil for the tender hearted kinder Delilah Make no mistake Delilah was not weak or bland In many ways she was fierce and passionate even tough when reuired to be Both she and Hardy longed for a place to call Home for a family Hardy refused to think of it initially clashing as it did with what had always been his purpose in life Delilah could not afford to think of it now that she was no longer a lady but rather the proprietress of a boarding house on the docks She was determined to finally be true to herself and not beholden to any man for her happiness After all look how well that turned out last timeThe two main characters are wonderfully complex It was marvellous to read about a man who had finer feelings and a depth to his thinking that went beyond where to stick his penis There were moments of great humour I actually laughed out loud several times during reading and that has not happened in a while and the minor characters were lovingly drawn I wiped away a uiet tear and struggled through the emotions tingling in my chest And I smiled for the pair and their HEAI have read most of JAL s work and have enjoyed much of it but this book was a stand out for me How these two damaged lonely people find their Home in each other was truly moving I warmly recommend it for lovers of high uality HR You won t be disappointed
