Lady Bess by Claudy Conn
Lady Elizabeth of Saunders, better known as Lady Bess, wants to marry for love not convenience. Her heart knows the man she wants, unfortunately it’s someone who enjoys his bachelor life. This young woman decided to go for what she wants and do whatever it takes to get her man and make him fall in love with her.




The Earl of Dunkirk is from Scotland but has inherited his mother’s English home and title. Making him a prime piece for those of the ton. His plan is to marry someone for an heir and then continue to go his own way, as if he were still a single man. Lady Bess does not fit into those plans. He won’t ruin an innocent or get involved with someone who may want more. So why can’t he get her out of his head?




There's more then romance between these two members of the ton. Evil villains are lurking about with plans of their own. Lady Bess has accidentally stumbled into their plans, unwelcome. Good thing she’s not your normal simpering female when faced with danger and mayhem. Another adventure from the mind of Claudy Conn to take you down the rough road to romance and the battles along the way.

Usually, I love romances, this one is horrible.

About 80 pages in, Bess becomes very ublikable and selfish when she ignores a child who is tied up in the back of a gypsy wagon. It doesn't matter what her insignificant, trite reason is, she immediately became as unlikable as her rival. Bad writing, Claudy Conn, you k...
About 80 pages in, Bess becomes very ublikable and selfish when she ignores a child who is tied up in the back of a gypsy wagon. It doesn't matter what her insignificant, trite reason is, she immediately became as unlikable as her rival. Bad writing, Claudy Conn, you know better! That is bad enough, then Bess becomes immediately obsessed with her own sexual needs within a few pages, to the point where she suddenly comes across as some loser pervert instead of a cool lead character. So what if this book ends well? It's a good thing its free, or I would be returning it for a full refund. As it is, I am just removing it from my nook, and Claudy Conn from my "to purchase" authors list.
Two thumbs down & AWFUL.

    Not bad overall but wish there were more steam between the main

    Not bad overall but wish there were more steam between the main characters. Bess was head over heels, but John seemed more aloof and really against any type of love besides between the sheets. theirs is a romance i wasnt really wishing for but glad they end up happy. the mystery part was alittle more cut and dry. an inheritance destined for an illegitimate heir, left relatives bitter and gypsies and an unhappy widow/previous bedmate  began problems for the earl  and friends. not a perfect story but worth an hour or so free read!

    Don't understand the one star but ok

    I really liked the story and people. Yes half the book would have been avoided if they would have saved the boy the first time they saw him but again there would have been no book. I've read two free books from this author and can't wait to buy a few most are 2.99 and for a good book over 400 pg. I am more than happy to pay that

    Earl of Dunkirk and Lady Bess


    A fun easy historical romance with the Earl of Dunkirk and Lady Bess. Bess wants more than the Earl had planned to give and then the game is afoot. A quick read that was engaging and fun.

    Exciting dialogue!

    The dialogue in this novel was absolutely intoxicating. Indeed, it made me feel as though I was taking part in some naughty gossip during some of the discussions. It felt as though the author was teasing me by leaving out key pieces of information that left me wanting more.

    The only thing that kept me from giving this a five star review is that I didn't feel that I learned anything new about the time frame, which is something I actively seek in a period piece.

    The dialogue was superb and the story flowed beautifully. I would happily read more from this author.
