Love is worth a little scandal.

Owen Hadley needs a wife. Preferably a wealthy one. Alas, there aren’t a great number of heiresses willing to marry a rogue of no particular fortune—luckily, if there is ever a gentleman capable of melting a lady’s chilly heart, it’s Owen.

Milly has had enough of the marriage mart. If matrimony means giving up her freedom for a foppish husband, then society can take their idea of marital bliss and toss it. But when the ton’s most notorious rogue mistakenly makes his way into her bedchambers, Milly finds herself unexpectedly and unwillingly at the altar . . .

Yet the more time she spends with her new husband, the more Milly starts to wonder if the marriage she never wanted may be the best thing that’s ever happened to her. Now it’s up to Owen to convince Milly that what started as a mistake is anything but—and that every night with him will be more wonderfully scandalous than the last

 

If you’re looking for a nice book to unwind from your grueling day. Then you need to check out A Gentleman Never Surrenders by Lauren Smith. This is book #2 in her Sins and Scandals series.
In the story, Owen Hadley needs a wife. But not just any wife. He is in desperate need of a wife with rather a ton of money. In steps heiresses, Milly. She is getting tired husband hunting. Because she knows that once she gets married, her freedom goes out the door as soon as she says I Do.
When Owen enters Milly bedchamber they are forced to the altar. And come to realize that maybe getting caught wasn’t so bad.
Lauren Smith totally surprise me with this book. I was expecting something to the tune of her steamer offering but was taking a back on how different her writing style when it came to her writing historical fiction. She totally grabs you right from the start, but instead of the plot when it came to this story it was Owen and Milly who kept me reading.
A Gentleman Never Surrenders was my first ever Historical Romance that I read by Lauren Smith and certainly won’t be my last. I enjoyed this book so much that I will have to check out An Earl by Any Other Name.
I will certainly recommend this title to any reader who is into historical romance or just looking for a fun entertaining way to unwind for a few hours or however long it takes for you to read 147 pages

A GENTLEMAN NEVER SURRENDERS

by

Lauren Smith


Milly climbed onto the bed and pulled the bedclothes up around her chest and sighed. The bed was so large, and rather lonely. Usually she didn’t let such a melancholy thought bother her, but tonight for some reason, it did. There was a dull ache in her chest and she rubbed the spot with her hand. Somewhere tonight, Mr. Hadley was likely climbing into bed, dreaming of all the young ladies’ hearts he would steal and break. A treacherous little flutter in her chest made Milly wince. She ought not to think of Hadley, certainly not while she was in bed…yet thinking of him, as frustrating and maddeningly irritating as he was, flushed her with a welcome heat in the chilly room.

The oil lamp beside her bed was the only light left in the room and it burned steadily. Often she read late into the night and forgot to turn it off, but tonight she was too tired to read. She reached over and gently twisted the brass knob to kill the little flame. Darkness absorbed the dying light and Milly flipped onto her back. The cold of the sheets almost stung her bare toes and legs when her nightdress rode up to her knees. A cold bed, an empty bed. It shouldn’t have upset her, but after Mr. Hadley’s talk of heat and summer, she was off balance and bothered.

The mere thought of him and the way his eyes had darkened and seemed to shimmer with inner flames brought on another rush of warmth. His eyes, like honeyed fire, and his lips, the way he’d smiled sardonically, almost mockingly, in a way she rather liked, irritated her, yet fascinated her. There was no reason to like a man’s mouth or to imagine what it might be like to have that mouth pressed to hers in a kiss that caused the heat he was so fond of discussing. She knew his kiss would be hot, because when she thought of it, her body blossomed with a swelling of heat in her belly. His mouth is wicked…sinful…and I hate that I wish to know how he tastes. It was a forbidden thought, but one she couldn’t deny. She rolled over onto her stomach, fluffed her pillow, and squeezed her eyes shut, attempting to will herself to sleep. It was going to be a long night.

Climax (Her British Stepbrother #3)

Climax1.4_RGB300

A love so forbidden. A passion so undeniable . . .

It’s time for Kat to face the truth. She can’t resist sexy playboy Tristan–he’s too deliciously seductive, and much too good at making her melt, body and soul. With photographic proof plastered all over London, the whole world now knows she’s fallen for this British bad boy.

There’s just one problem. Their parents got married and now Tristan is her stepbrother. They shouldn’t be together, but Tristan always gets what he wants, and he wants her more than anything. Behind closed doors, this only makes every moment they spend together hotter, every kiss deeper, as the passion between them blazes higher . . .

My Review: I never knew how much I hated endings. Climax the conclusion to “Her British Stepbrother” by Lauren Smith, was really worth the wait. Climax picked up where Seduction left off. Now that a picture of them together has surfaced. It was a matter of when will their parent learn that they were a couple.

Which it doesn’t take long for Tristan’s mother to find out. However, it wasn’t his mother Tristan was worried about…it was his overbearing father.

Climax will have you cheering for these star crossed lovers who in my eyes were destined to be together. Climax was in itself a Shakespearean play with the heavy on Romeo and Juliet overtones with a little of real life thrown in for good measures.

You see what I am talking about once you pick up your copy of

Tristan is a man who knows what he wants. And he wants Kat in his bed. All he has to do is convince her they belong together . . .

Kat knows the connection she and Tristan share is special. Her British bad boy is too much of everything: too hot, too arrogant, too irresistible to stay away from. He’s her addiction and one night with him isn’t enough.

That’s what hurts the most. They can’t date, can’t be a normal couple, not when their parents are getting married. Because now that she knows he’s going to be her stepbrother, no one can ever find out what they’ve done . . .

My Review: Wow!!!! I thought the first book in this series was good. When we last seen  our couple they had a surprise of their lives. Their parents are engaged.

Can this courtship get any worse. Its seems that fate has it out for Tristan and Kat. While Tristan doesn’t let the news effect him, its Kat who makes the hard decision to call everything off. If the news of their parents engagment doesn’t make the relationship difficult enough , fate has thrown another wrench into their secret relationship find out what theat wrench is in Lauren Smith next book “Climax” Her British Stepbrother coming out May 3, 2016

He’s her first. He’s her everything. He’s her . . . stepbrother.

Kat has always been a good girl. She studies hard and never stays out too late. But when sitting in a pub on her birthday, she realizes she’s a nineteen-year-old virgin who’s never really lived. And she wants tonight to be the night that changes.

Then she sees him walk in. He’s tall, dark, handsome, and straight out of her deepest fantasies. His voice makes her knees feel weak, and when he smiles, she imagines him doing wicked things to her in bed. From the look in his eyes, she knows he’s imagining it too. So when he asks if he can walk her home, she hears herself whisper yes . . .

My Review: This would be my first and certainly not my last book by Lauren Smith. Smith wrote a captivating tale of love and destiny. Kat was an innocent especially in the ways of romance. Kat is celebrating her 19th birthday in London with friends. When she came up with a plan “Operation Adventure” this plan will take her outside her comfort zone, when she sees him walk in. Tristan was everything that a women needs and what Kat needs to make her plan a big success.

Normally I don’t like the whole stepbrother and stepsister relationship thing. However, with Forbidden Her British Stepbrother it works. Because one thing they don’t know that they are soon to become related, so them getting together doesn’t have that yuck factor like other books with the topic. But I can’t wait to see how they both handle the news once they find out.
