I read a lot of romance. Historical isn't typically my thang at all. It's the rare book that stands up and captures my interest, setting itself apart as something unique and intriguing. Lily Mine by Annabel Joseph does just that. Lily disgraced her family and had been cast out. She'd run out of money and strength to walk when she saw a sign. Literally. A sign.... for Lilyvale Manor. Okay. If I was out of money, had walked farther than my legs were actually capable of carrying me and I saw a sign that said "Michelle's Manor," you'd bet I'd see it as a sign from the heavens above. I'd drag myself down that path if I had to. When Lord Ashbourne steps into his parlor to meet the female looking for a job, he is stunned to find his wife's doppelganger. This would be the same wife that married him and ran away leaving her family and husband to cover for her absence in order to prevent widespread disgrace. With opportunity presenting itself, Ashbourne makes quite the proposal to Lily. Act like my wife until we find her. Let's see. Out of money? Check. Can't move another muscle to even leave? Check. Being offered money to be pampered like high society? Check. Who in their right mind would turn him down? Not me. Not Lily either. Of course he finds in Lily the looks that attracted him to his own short term wife, but he finds the fiery personality he'd expected to marry as well. The attraction between the two boils hot. The forbidden attraction compels them to cross the line society has drawn between their two classes. And to cap it all off, there is a twist of an ending to explain everything that will leave you mouthing, "No Way! How did I not see that coming?" Oh and let me not forget to add for all my alpha loving friends out there who like a bit of bondage and spanking, Annabel will not let you down. James doesn't identify himself as a Dom. He isn't a member of any Dommy organization or even clue into what he is doing. It's just part of him. Just the way he likes to make love with her. And she certainly responds positively to having her wrists pinned to the bed while he drives her crazy. It's all pretty light and on the side, so big time BDSM fans, don't go expecting a Lifestyle read. The play seemed exactly right for the times, and gentle enough for historical fans to still enjoy the ride. Enjoy!

I LOVE HISTORICAL ROMANCE BUT THIS BOOK IS ALL ABOUT THE LORDS INSATIABLE APPETITE FOR SEX!. DON'T GET ME WRONG STILL LOVED THE BOOK, BUT SOMETIMES THE SEX SCENES WERE TOO MUCH! VERY SURPRISING.

Kind of weird that this gal gets into kinky sex so quickly and without ANY reservations..... In an era when women were taught extreme decency I find it hard to believe that a sweet, well bred lady would jump in the sack so quickly......And allow all his perversions.....I could write HOT better than this . Two stars for the cover.....now that was HOT. Oh and the dude was of course the most handsomest guy ever ever. I grow tired of that. ordinary looking, ugly, not so ugly, cute, and use great underlying features, now that would be interesting....

Wow! This is the best book I have read in several years. It is a true romance with a touch of erotica. This book stands out because it is a great story, wonderful characters, etc. I was so thrilled with this book that I want to write the author and tell her. I could not purchase this from Barnes and Noble for my Nook and had to buy the paperback. i'm so glad I did. I highly recommend this book and author. I'm going to buy everything she has written!!

I am shocked by the rating for this book. 4 stars, really? I realize we are all have different opinions, but…. wow. I have legitimately never read a book that was so poorly written. Ever.  Character development is practically nonexistent, and the plot is very rushed. The writing is really, really bad, and as hard as I tried to overlook it, it overshadows the story. I suspect this was the author's first foray into writing, because the writing in Disciplining the Duchess isn't nearly as bad. Here's an example from page 121 of the book: "The problem is that…" Chew, chew, chew. She waited anxiously to hear what the problem was. He finally swallowed and looked at her with gravity. "The problem is that while the enjoyment of such pleasurable diversions would be, certainly, quite satisfying to us both, it is not my right to… to besmirch your sensibilities, as you are not actually my wife." Chew, chew, chew? Bad, bad, bad.

OK so histrocial romance is a hidden secert like of mine. I don't like to admit it so many of the stories are chessey, but so many are something else. Well this one wasn't it could have been and it was a good read, but just didn't hold up to some of the others I have read by Ms Joseph. here's hoping my next Annabel Joseph novel is better.
