    Let me get this out- the cover is gorgeous! That smoldering rake.. yummy.Now the book.. which was pretty average. After having a disappointing reading day yesterday- I was looking for something wonderful to read. Hence I picked this up.This is the story of Felicity and Lord Ian.Felicity is the notorious writer, Lord X- who pens gossip columns to support her family- which consists of 4 younger brothers.When one such speculation leads to the breaking of Lord Ian's engagement as his to be fiancée elopes- he sets out to discover the identity and finds himself at the battle of wills with Felicity.The love scenes were well written. Characters from previous book appear in their HEA.However the main couple frustrated me. So much pushing away and lack of communication existed between them- he insisted on keeping his secrets- she insisted on accusing him of every vile deed- and even after they married things persisted. I didn't connect much to them- and though there is a HEA and a cute epilogue- barring a few good scenes overall the book was an average read. I enjoyed the triplets and James. Safe2.5/5

    I loved Ian! Felicity was a pain! She always had something to say to stop Ian or slow him way down. I loved the way he gave her some time to realize he was for her. She was so stuborn but Ian knew just how to get his way. Ahh what a man!Felicity was a gossip writer for the Evening Gazette in 1820 London. She used a pen name...Lord X. She made the mistake of writing gossip about Ian and he got angry about it. He decided to find out just who Lord X is. He was surprised that it was a woman. Her last column caused his betrothed to run away and get married to someone else. Now Ian needs a wife so....he now has his eyes on Felicity. They go through a lot before they get their HEA. Felicity has 4 little brothers. There is a serious 11 year old and 3 adorable 6 year old triplets. The triplets are known as the Terror of Taylor Hall. I love the way the triplets are used for comic relief. There also is a sweet scene with Ian and one of the triplets that will melt your heart. This book has a good mystery and an agressive hero and a spunky heroine. It also has a hateful uncle trying to mess up Ian's plans. I love how the other characters in the series are involved in this story too. If you like a good romance and cute children and a wonderful HEA...This book is for you.

    Definitivamente el mejor de la trilogía. El personaje femenino es una joya, divertida e ingeniosa, es la chispa de la novela. Siempre tiene una respuesta preparada, la lengua rápida y un corazón honorable. El vizconde al principio parece muy cuadriculado "con un oscuro secreto" como todos, pero también sorprende en su evolución. Por supuesto, en este libro se nota la evolución en la escritura y tardó en aparecer la expresión de "abriendo los ojos como naranjas" ¿lo echaba de menos? Absolutamente NO. También la resolución del conflicto se hizo esperar hasta el último minuto, y se resolvió en dos páginas, típico. Pero por en medio hubo más vueltas de tuerca, más tramas y enredos que hicieron que fuera una novela más compleja que las otras dos y mantuviese mi interés como lectora.

    Simply stated, I did enjoy this Sabrina Jeffries historical romance. Of course, the best thing I liked about it was the cover illustration! Sooo yummy!! Just keeping this hero's sexy face in mind doubled the lusty heat portrayed by his character. I've read many romances where the interactions and dialogue between the hero and heroine were witty, sarcastic and very entertaining, but added ruthless to what progresses between this hero and heroine and that extra something that makes their story so entertaining is revealed. Although, I will admit here that there are parts to their story that are very cliche, such as the "Cinderella" theme that surrounds the heroine and the dashing, white knight (although, I might describe him more as grey?)who rides to her rescue. However, I think the banter and dangerous games they play with each other make up for this generic aspect of their theme. I wish I could add this book to my favorites shelf just for the cover art alone! But alas, my head overrules my heart this time :-( I place this romance as a strong rating of 3-stars and am wholly confident in saying that most would find it thoroughly enjoyable.

    As I am finding with Jeffries' female characters, I found the female lead annoying, somewhat despicable and utterly weak. I also find Jeffries' requisite random non-lead POV insertion to be supremely insulting (because really, I couldn't figure out what this character's motivation was without seeing it from their POV?) and also wrenched me out of the story. I hate that.However, as usual, Jeffries has interesting mysteries and plots and fantastic male leads. One only wonders what these fabulous men find in these excruciating females. (Other than their general attractiveness.) *sigh* ah well. No author can be perfect.

    DNF @ 16%Their first fight really stressed me out (really really stressed me out) and then I kept reading, only to realize that this was going to be one of those books where the hero and heroine fight all the effing time just to create sexual tension. Maybe I'm wrong but I don't think I am and I don't want to waste my time reading a book that stresses me out with bickering.

    I first read this a few years ago and liked it, but didn't think it was anything much. Then in the last six months or so, I found myself thinking of 'that story where the penniless heroine is secretly a gossip columnist, and she's got to support this brood of younger siblings, and I think they went to a wax museum?...,' only by then, I'd long forgotten the title of the story and who wrote it. After a LONG time searching the archives on my Kindle (attention Amazon: you might get to work developing more functional search and book description features), I finally found this book. Upon a second reading, it was not any more exceptional than it had been the first time, so I'm not sure why the plot outline stuck with me. Gossip columnist Felicity writes that Lord Ian St.Ivealreadyforgotten has a beautiful mistress, which ticks him off because 1) it isn't true, and 2) it spurs his fiancée to jilt him, and he desperately needs a wife and heir or he will lose his inheritance to a dastardly uncle. He tracks down Felicity, confronts her, but she sticks by her sources. They argue a bunch, say rotten things to each other, building up a predictable head of lust steam all the while. Then Ian decides, since he really does need a wife, it might as well be Felicity. She resists, so he tries various schemes before ultimately seducing her and threatening to expose her penniless state to her creditors in order to manipulate her to the alter. Then he belatedly grows a conscience and wishes he hadn't tricked her, but it's too late: she's in love. Together, they defeat the dastardly uncle and live HAE.

    Ya ampun, ini buku sudah lama banget aku baca tapi lupa aku review. Akhir-akhir ini emang aku jarang banget baca novel, lebih sering baca komik. Hahahahahaha... Kalau pun baca ebook, biasanya aku cuma ngasih rate di Goodreads, tapi gak aku review >,<Sebenarnya aku sudah rada lupa sih sama ceritanya. Yang jelas ceritanya kocak. Karakternya sama-sama keras kepala, gak ada yang mau ngalah. Saling nyerang dengan gosip gitu. Gara-gara kolom Mr. X aka Felicity, Ian gak bisa mendapatkan istri, gosip-gosip yang diciptakan wanita itu membuat calon istrinya kabur semua.Ian balas dendamnya dengan merayu Felicity yang malah membuat keduanya terjebak dengan perasaan masing-masing.Aku suka sama karakter pendukung di cerita ini, terutama adiknya Felicity. Nakalnya ampun-ampun. Karakter utama wanitanya malah sedikit menyebalkan karena ketidakpercayaannya kepada Ian. Hmph...Overall, aku menikmati ceritanya yang lucu dan gemesin. Ada interaksi antara Ian dengan adiknya Felicity juga bikin melting :) Dan tentunya ada konflik antara pemeran utama pria dengan salah satu keluarnya. Khas Sabrina Jeffries yang satu ini ^^

    I wish I could give this book 10 STARS....I was glad to read Ian story..now the heroine on the other hand what a BIOACH...she was tripping up until literally the end of the book. But Ian was amazing, dark, handsome, kindhearted, lovable and rich...can't ask for a better hero. I thought his character was funny at times, emotional at times and HOT at times. The storyline came together for me but I was surprised that he would be interested in someone like Felicity too damn strong willed and the bitch was borderline crazy...I hated that she kept thinking Ian was lying...when you have such a wonderful hero it's easy to hate anyone who mistreats him...she was just noisy as hell and wouldn't give him the respect he deserves about his privacy..all the book was good and I'm glad Ian found love instead of settling on just any wife....I was touched when he finally confessed his love for her, it wasn't over the top, no dramatic speech..just simply "I do love you, you know"

    I've just read some reviews about this, and I kinda agree with them. I wanted to scream at the female lead to stop badgering the poor guy and others when I wanted to scream at the male lead to just tell her the truth. Its not that bad. I was expecting something much worse then that. As the "incident" was an accident! You see it happen a llt these days. When he was telling the story, I really wanted to give the guy a hug. The female leads 4 brothers were just lovely. I really loved them, and they were well established as well. Georgie was my favourite, no idea why but I totally wish he were mine. anyway, this last book to the Lord Trilogy was amazing and I wish that there are more books! I have a lot of other books by Sabrina, and I'm so going to read the others after finishing the book I'm on atm. ♥♥♥♥♥ loved it!

    The romance between a nearly destitute gossip columnist with four young brothers to care for and a mysterious viscount with a dark secret past.The two meet when Felicity writes about Ian in an effort to help a timid friend of hers who could not find a reason to refuse his proposal and he becomes determined to discover her real identity and make sure she doesn't write anything else about him.Neither acts as the other expects and sparks begin to fly from their first encounter, leading Ian to set his mind on convincing her to marry him and Felicity to refuse emphatically as long as he kept his many secrets.An enjoyable war of wills between a well suited couple and a fitting end to the series, with the two previous couples and friends of Ian's making their appearance and playing their part in bringing the couple together.

    A cheesy, sexy, hot romance...After reading a third book of same kind i should have been satisfied.. Really i usually do that's why i dont read most of the series which run like 7-12 books or even more but this time i really wished the author had written more in this series...But i guess i can always read the other books of same kind... Afterall the author have written a quite a lot of them...What i liked the most is the first half of the book where they were having a banter.. I mean who wouldn't love a sexy fight.. I dont know why but i am feeling historical romance more hotter than the current romance...Maybe this is all because of the fact how our author writes about pure innocent women of the society doing naughty bits... I guess it has its appeal..Recommended to anyone who likes a steamy sexy fight & romance..I really liked the seduction chapter a lot..

    Overall an ok book. The characters can be very frustrating and unlikable. SJ may be going for realistic or honest behavior/reaction but it did not endear the characters to me.Felicity was quite the self-righteous prig who jumps to conclusion based on what facts she has gathered. On a normal person, that is already irritating. From someone who writes gossip news; even if that is her only means of supporting her family, that is indecent and outrageous.Surprisingly, Ian falls for her. With all the inference on his war years and how good he was, it was disappointing how badly he handles and deals with Felicity. Throwing around Wellington's name was a cop out. The three terrors were quite sweet.

    Jeffries continua la curva ascendiente con esa saga y nos regala una última entrega muy superior a las anteriores, puesto que la trama es más compleja, divertida y excitante. Se podría decir que la autora juega con el esquema de la novela romántica para llevarlo hacía donde la pareja protagonista lo necesita. Además, la protagonista femenina se sale del molde y su química con el vizconde de Saint Clair es una gozada.

    I can honestly say that I cannot find one redeeming character about Felicity.Declaring that she is a serious author when not the least bit of fact checking took place...she writes slander. She should be prosecuted, not married.The entire book with drove me mad. How are you supposed to like a silly woman like that?Please do not mistake self confidence with utter stupidity and an overflated ego!!!!!

    My absolute favorite from this trilogy. A spitfire, smart and sassy heroine, and a tortured, intelligent, and physical hero, all wrapped up in a great plot. The back-and-forth between the two main protagonists is corking!

    I looked forward to Ian's story from the his first appearance in the first book in the series, and more so after his role in the second. I am glad that he found his happy ending after two of his prospective wives eloped with other men--fate had a better partner waiting for him in Felicity Taylor.

    It's a toss up between this book and the second in the series for which one I enjoyed more. So glad I finally read this series, SJ is one of my favorite authors, so the only series left of hers to read is Swanlea Sisters, and I'm starting it now!

    It's been a while since I've read a romance novel with a heroine as annoying as Felicity Taylor. Had to skim the last half of the book just to get through this insipid effort. (Rating: 2 stars)

    Easily forgettable regency that borrows heavily from Julia Quinn's Bridgestone series with the woman writing the mysterious newspaper column, and a hero tortured by an uncle and his own past.

    The Dangerous Lord is the final book in the Lord Trilogy and being consistent it stays an average historical romance read with an annoying Heroine like the previous books. The Heroes in these books are definitely more likeable than their women. The story is based on a withheld incident that involves the Hero, his Uncle, and his Aunt. It's an enjoyable but predictable story. The Pirate Lord: 3+ starsThe Forbidden Lord: 3- starsThe Dangerous Lord: 3 starsFelicity Taylor is London's secretive gossip columnist barely supporting four younger brothers in a sparsely furnished house. To prevent a dear friend from marrying Ian Lennard, the notorious Viscount St. Clair, Felicity writes about him in her anonymous column. Ian's outrage leads him to finding her and so the clash of wills and wits begins. Personally, I think Ian deserved a better Heroine. It seems to be the theme of this trilogy - What do these rugged and passionate men find endearing about annoying and pedantic women? The attraction is not even endearing because the women are so bothersome. I liked the playful banter between Ian and Felicity, the mischievous triplets, the jovial large housekeeper Mrs. Box, the outing to the Wax Museum, and the dastardly Uncle getting his just desserts. I didn't like Ian withholding his past for so long, Felicity's inaccurate accusations every minute which were founded on hearsay which I see as slander, and the slowing pace at the book's end. Their sexy times are better than the previous book but not as comparable to the first book. I recommend this historical romance series for an enjoyable read if you can bear the Heroines' personality traits which sadly fall short of the stronger Heroes they meet. A common 3 star series.

    Ian is desperate to get married to save his estate. He has tried several times to respectable choices, but they always fell through. He is furious when his latest choice falters because of untrue rumors printed in a gossip column. Determined to stop the infamous Lord X from further harming his reputation, he tracks down the writer only to discover that Lord X is an extremely attractive and aggravating woman. She refuses to not only print a retraction but to stop writing about Ian since she is certain she is correct about her assumptions. His determination to keep secrets only confirms her suspicions. His anger towards her slowly turns towards passion, will she accept him when it seems he will never tell her the truth?After reading quite a few of Jeffries books, I have come to realize that she excels at writing flawed characters. Ian is no exception. He doesn't do everything correctly. Neither does Felicity. They do, however, grow and realize their mistakes. Another good read.

    We saw quite a lot of Ian, Viscount St. Clair, in the previous book and we learn two things about him: he needs to find a wife soon and there is some sort of mystery about his past.In this book, we learn that due to the terms of his father's will, Ian must not only marry but also have a legitimate heir in two years time. Otherwise the estate will go to Ian's despicable uncle.Ian is almost engaged to a quiet, shy girl that he thinks will be suitable. Until the gossip columnist called Lord X insinuates that Ian has a mistress living in a house that he owns! The girl elopes with her father's steward, so he is back at square one and time is getting short.He hunts down Lord X, thinking to make him print a retraction, but Lord X turns out to be Felicity Taylor, a beautiful young orphan who is raising her four younger brothers. She is not cowed by his threats and browbeating manner. She has a sharp tongue and even sharper brain. Ian is immediately attracted to her and decides she's "The One."Felicity isn't so sure. She wants a real marriage built on mutual respect and trust, but Ian keeps his past hidden inside even though it is obvious to Felicity that he has deep secrets and deep hurts.Now this one I really liked. I loved Felicity's honesty and quick wits and outspokenness. And Ian is a typical alpha male, until his transformation late in the book, so there are plenty of fireworks between them. I really enjoyed the vanquishing of the evil uncle.This was a fun series, and it reminded me of all the reasons I've always loved Sabrina Jeffries' writing.
