    1. This was an OK, provided by netgalley It had a fascinating premise, of a professional marriage breaker, which was quite different and also quite believable I really liked what the author did here It s slightly off the wall, but just the sort of thing I can imagine infuriated, panicky parents doing when there was a huge amount of cash at stake, and they wanted to prevent their errant offspring from making bad choices However, in its execution in the story, I had a few problems Any parent would ac [...]

    3. There are a group of writers who know how to handle historical romance well, and Nicola Cornick is one of those This story is just different enough that it caught my interest immediately and I am delighted to have read it The heroine is not present trying to find a husband as is most often the case Rather she is present at ton events to prevent marriages, specifically the matches that have begun which are not favored by the family of one or the other of the persons in question Masquerading as a [...]


    4. I feel bad See, Cornick is a good writer It s just that I absolutely despised her male lead, Devlin Yes, yes He s supposed to be passionate and a rake and a pirate and whatever, but really, he s a royal douche He s threatening, cruel, and his actions border on assault Just because the female lead doesn t mind it, doesn t make it ok Usually, there is a fine line between menace and machismo and the reader is supposed to be enthralled or taken in by it You know, because it s romantic Not this reade [...]


    5. 4.5 starsDevlin is a man on the lower steps of the ton s scale, with a less than stelar reputation and in sore need of funds His only hope to escape his debts, is a good marriage for both him and his sister But just when it seems that they ve both made it, with Devlin being betrothed to a rich earl s daughter and his sister on the verge of being proposed to by a Marquis, Susanna enters Susanna, happens to be not only his sister s rival for the Marquis affections, but also Devlin s ex wife And su [...]


    6. Notorious by Nicola Cornick is Cornick s latest release in her Scandalous Women of the Ton series For me personally I ve found Cornick s books to be hit or miss A few of them are my go to favorites, but I ve also read some that just really didn t do it for me Unfortunately, Notorious fell into the latter.Susanna finds herself face to face with her husband, a man she deliberately left after consummating their elopement and hasn t seen in several years James, her husband, is engaged to a rich and [...]

    9. NOTORIOUS is the fourth book in Nicola Cornick s memorable Scandalous Women of the Ton series and takes you on an emotional journey full of passion, deceit, sacrifice and regret.Susanna Burney excels in her chosen profession as a match breaker and is much sought after within society by wealthy parents wishing to break up unsuitable couples Posing as Lady Caroline Carew, a wealthy widow, her latest commission is to entice the Duke and Duchess of Alton s son, Fitzwilliam Fitz , away from a certain [...]


    10. On its surface, Notorious is a sexy Regency Romance a battle of wills between two former lovers with conflicting agendas But underneath, it s a story of loss, regret, and self realization It is, in turns, sad, steamy, frustrating, and rewarding.Devlin and his sister Chessie have always had to scrape to make ends meet But they finally seem to have a comfortable future in their grasp Devlin is engaged to a wealthy woman of the Ton He doesn t love her, but he is pragmatic about the marriage Chessie [...]


    11. I was pleasantly surprised by this one I wasn t sure what to expect when I got it from NetGalley, especially since I hadn t read any of the other books in the series But it turns out you really didn t need to read those to enjoy this one.The last thing Susanna Burney expected when she accepted her latest assignment was to find James Devlin She d last seen him when she was seventeen, heartbroken and leaving him In the years since, she s done what s she s needed to in order to ensure her welfare a [...]

    13. Notorious is the fourth book in the Scandalous Women of the Ton series I have not read any of the previous books and that did not spoil the read of Notorious Each novel stands alone, though characters of the other books will crop up familiarly to fans of the series From the first page, the author transports you back in time to glittering ballrooms, handsome gentleman and elegant ladies She paints the portrait of the time effortlessly, before ripping the rose tinted glasses from out face and show [...]


    14. I never go into historical romances expecting very much, so it s always a pleasant surprise when one is well written and engaging enough to hold my attention I liked the premise of this book, which follows Lady Susannah, a woman makes her living as a professional unmatchmaker for men with unsuitable love interests She s hampered in her quest to break up the current couple that is her job, however, because one man is standing in her way James Devlin, her husband.The beginning of the book is a lit [...]


    15. In NOTORIOUS, Susanna works as a matchbreaker, dividing unsuitable couples by order of their concerned parents But she encounters Devlin, a man from her past who threatens to unravel the careful life she has constructed for herself On the one hand, the characters in this book are written well, because I connected emotionally with them However, the continuous acrimony between the two main characters got a little hard to take There wasn t a lot of action in this book, which is fine, given its hist [...]


    16. 1.75 Review completa em pepitamagica 2016 Full review pepitamagica 2016 Tenho pouca coisa boa para dizer sobre este livro Susanna e Devlin s o personagens irritantes, mesmo no fim n o se redimem Apenas Rosy e Rory, que verdadeiramente n o entram no livro, prestam Eu percebo que em casos de extrema necessidade, tudo possa acontecer, mas isso n o justifica a atitude de nenhuma das personagens N o houve uma nica personagem com a qual me pudesse identificar minimamente A pr pria hist ria n o me pren [...]


    17. Oh, great The big misunderstanding, the nonsensical separation, the pure as the driven snow adventuress , and the endless rehashing of internal turmoil trying to disguise lust as true love Also, worst secondary romance ever Kind of depressing.

    19. When I read the BOB blog, I thought, Matchbreaker What a cool concept But the story is dissapointing, the characters non sympathetic.Here s the rundown full of spoilers The H and h secretly and impulsively married nine years previous After the wedding night, the heroine changed her mind and told the hero she was leaving and would obtain an annulment They parted hate the hero for not fighting for the marriage What a coward He runs off into the military She goes to her Uncle, finds out she s pregn [...]


    20. It s almost a universal concept The person your child looks like they are going to marry just isn t good enough for them The definition of good enough may vary, but the idea probably occurred to the first caveman s parents when he dragged a cavewoman home from the cave next door.In Nicola Cornick s latest Regency romp, Notorious, she takes the concept to a whole new level Betrothals were broken if one of the parties proved unfaithful before the marriage was solemnized After the wedding, of cours [...]
