Overview

Oh, those naughty rakes. With their wicked winks, sensual smiles, and bad boy habits, you just can’t take them out in polite society. But who wants to go out when you can stay in...?

STOLEN PLEASURES
Sebastian Blake, Earl of Merrick, long ago fled the responsibilities of his title to become the infamous pirate, Captain Phoenix. But the booty he’s just captured on a merchant ship is a fierce tempered minx who claims to be a bride...his bride, married to him by proxy on behest of their fathers. He could shame his hated family and return his beautiful wife untouched, but no treasure has ever proved more tempting to Sebastian, and making their marriage a true one-in every sense-is his one urgent desire ...

LUCIEN’S GAMBLE
Lucien Remington’s reputation as a debauched libertine who plays by no one’s rules-in business or the bedroom-is well deserved. He gets what he wants, social repudiation be damned. But society can keep from him the one thing he truly desires, the untouchable Lady Julienne La Coeur. Until she sneaks into his club dressed as a man and searching for her irresponsible brother. Suddenly she’s in Lucien’s grasp, his to take, and his mind is filled with the most wickedly sinful thoughts. A gentleman would walk away from the temptation she presents. But then, Lucien has never claimed to be a gentleman...

HER MAD GRACE
Hugh La Coeur never wanted to be the Earl of Montrose. Wine, women, and a hefty wager are preferable to responsibility of any kind. It’s certainly preferable to spending the night in an eerie, neglected mansion owned by a legendary madwoman. The duchess’s companion, the fiercely independent Charlotte, is another matter altogether. Hugh would be happy to spend as many nights in her bed as possible. He knows she’s hiding terrible secrets, but for once in his life, Hugh has the desire to take on someone else’s burden as his own, no matter what the danger...

They’re mad, bad, and totally irresistible...

Editorial Reviews

Booklist
"Three sexy rakes wreak havoc in the romantic lives of three Regency ladies in this loosely, yet cleverly, connected trio of novellas...Day provides plenty of richly detailed love scenes in each tale, and her wickedly entertaining combination of steamy sex and bold language is certain to be appreciated by readers who like hot historicals by Virginia Henley and Susan Johnson."

Absolutely enjoyed this short story about a Lady that dresses as a man to gain entrance into a gentleman's club. She was only hoping to find her brother who had been gambling away their inheritance but instead she found Lucien. The characters in this story are just so likable. Julianne, the heroine, is feisty with a backbone sturdier than most men. Lucien is so lovable and sweet when he isn't behaving badly and ravishing Julianne. I enjoyed watching these two find love, amidst a roller coaster ride of emotions: jealousy, angst, love sickness, oh and lust. Lucien is the son of a Duke, and that Duke's "love of his life", a prostitute. The interactions between Lucien and his family only add to the story and make it all that more adorable. The love scenes are so hot and risque even though Julianne attempts to remain a virgin, un ruined for a suitable husband. I was able to read this book in one sitting on a rainy afternoon. It's about 100 pages on my Nook but seemed to have a lot more meat to it than other novellas I have read. This is my first historical romance, and I found it easier to read than expected. I recommend this story to all readers looking to fill a rainy afternoon with some sunshine. I read this as a follow up to, Catching Caroline, since Julianne was introduced briefly in that book and I look forward to more by this author.

Lucien is definitely a bad, bad boy; however, the chemistry with Julienne is fabulous!! The buildup between these two characters breaks down all social barriers of the 19th century. This short story is 100 pages long and can be read quickly. The author did a wonderful job of helping the reader connect to the characters and the internal struggles of their passions.

The first time I read it I considered it to be one of the best books I have read. Now after the 8th time I know that it is.

Three great stories. Don't buy Luciens Gamble if you have this book. It's one of the three.
