Overview

Expect the unexpected, especially in a room filled with books…

Honoria Duchamp is well aware that men often consider widows easy prey for the role of mistress. What else could explain the attentions of handsome Lord Devin, and his visits to her bookshop? The much younger Viscount has even shown interest in the printing press with which she creates pamphlets on London’s basest injustices. Yet his chief interest appears to be in her…

Coerced to investigate Nora’s controversial pamphlets, Devin expected to find a bookish matron. Instead, he is taken with Nora’s womanly beauty, sharp intellect, and quick wit. Soon, what begins as an unwelcome task becomes a pleasure, and Devin’s job becomes more dangerous—for them both. For Nora has no idea of the vicious element she’s crossed. Now Devin will risk his reputation to protect her—and much more to win her love…

"Deliciously romantic and sizzling with sensual tension." --Nicola Cornick, USA Today bestselling Author

    Mrs. Honoria Duchamp is a widowed owner of a book shop in London

    Mrs. Honoria Duchamp is a widowed owner of a book shop in London. So why would Lord Devin have any interest in her. 

    Lord Devin has been assigned the task of ruining the widow Duchamp, he is being blackmailed with a scandal that will threaten his family. He has to stop Mrs. Duchamp from printing pamphlets about social disgraces she has uncovered. Apparently, one of Mrs. Duchamp’s pamphlets has hit close to home for some very powerful people making her a target with some very dangerous enemies.

    As soon as Lord Devin meets Mrs. Duchamp, he is immediately drawn to her, like no other woman before her. He quickly realizes that he must find a way to clear Mrs. Duchamp of this scandal and still save his family’s reputation.

    This book grew on me quickly. I found myself emotionally vested in Honoria’s quest as well as her heartache. Surprising revelations, unseen betrayals and character growth made this a fascinating and intriguing read. Amara Royce did a brilliant job, pulling us into this wonderful historical romance.

    This ARC copy of Never Too Late was given to me by Kensington Books in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publications on May 2, 2013.

    An excellent romance! There was mystery, adventure and plenty of attraction. The literature lover in me adored the appearance of several literary figures of the day. Elizabeth Barrett Browning's visit to the book shop was especially delightful. I liked that this story had the heroine older than the hero instead of the other way around, too. Not exactly your standard historical romance set-up. Highly recommend!

    Enjoyable read.

    Book source ~ Many thanks to NetGalley and Kensington for providing a review copy.

    Honoria ‘Nora’ Duchamp runs her family’s bookstore and even though she has a Duke in her family tree she’ll never be seen as more than a widow of the merchant class and below the station of her patrons. When Lord Devin stops in to her store one day and then begins to flirt with her, she is taken aback. What could the young and handsome Devin want with her? And why is she suddenly daydreaming of things that could never happen?

    Lord Alexander Devin is a Viscount and 14 years younger than Nora. When he is sent to investigate a widowed bookstore owner he expects a dried up old hag. Instead, he gets the intelligent and beautiful Nora and he’s intrigued. Unfortunately, he’s stuck in an impossible situation and must continue to lie to her as to his true intentions. Is there hope for this unusual pairing? What about the lies each are withholding from the other? They seem doomed from the beginning and yet there is hope.

    This historical romance was a little different from the usual fair since the heroine is older than the hero by a considerable number of years. Well, what was thought to be considerable then and even to some people today. The age and station difference creates a lot of conflict, but it’s the reason behind Alex’s original visit that is the true problem. Alex, for the most part, is wise beyond his years, but in this one thing he doesn’t really use his head. But then again we’re talking the 1800s, where the man was the head of the household and he was supposed to take care of his family and not worry the females he was responsible for with unpleasant business.

    Nora is too stuck on the fact she is older than Alex, but here again, we’re talking the 1800s where it was virtually unheard of for a wife to be older than her husband. A mistress, yes, but not a wife. A wife is expected to provide her husband with an heir and she’s too old for that even if she could buck tradition and marry Alex.

    All-in-all a solid historical romance with great characters and an intriguing storyline.

    I loved this story. Lord Devin knew what he wanted and he wanted Nora, he was 26, Nora was 38, but age didn't matter. I too married a younger man, 15 yrs younger!

    Found yet another new author, don't miss out!

    Thank goodness for Free Friday's, I'm so glad I gave this a chance. I loved the idea of not only the women being older, but that he knew he loved her before she did. It was nice to see him fight for her, and the life they could have together.

    I really enjoyed how the author had them encounter obstacles but were able to work them out and become closer. I highly recommend this book, and author, for those who like a little bit of everything. There was just enough information without going overboard to become boring, and there was also just enough spice to enhance the story and not overtake it.

    Like I said, don't miss out, you deeply regret it. Can't wait to read what else this author has to offer.

    Older Woman Gets the Guy!

    Our heroine is a 40-year-old woman who was born into the aristocracy but forced to support herself as a bookseller for the past twenty years. Socially, this makes her a pariah in high society, so she just focuses on maintaining a low profile and quietly supporting her social causes. Our hero is a young (mid-20s) lord who finds himself doing various "jobs" for a blackmailing solicitor. The latest task is to thoroughly discredit and/or eliminate our heroine, who is printing pamphlets that are irritating the blackmailer's client. The plot is typical for the genre. There are deep dark secrets from the past, loyal and disloyal friends, and truly bad villains. Somehow the bad guys have to be eliminated without exposing anyone's family secrets. And the heroine needs to overcome her (quite sensible) qualms about the hero's intentions. Because of their age difference, she can't believe this incredibly handsome young man could be interested in her for anything other than a brief fling, and she refuses his invitations until his mother weighs in on his side. This is the one area where I feel the plot is weak. I can't figure out why the heroine, who is still beautiful at her "advanced" age, is still on the shelf. Has no eligible man walked into her bookstore for the past twenty years? And why is the lord's mother pushing them together, instead of looking for a daughter-in-law who is young enough to produce a flock of heirs? That said, it's refreshing to have a young man looking for a woman with depth and strength, rather than an immature girl whose main assets are her face and figure.

    Quick historical beach read

    While this is not my preferred genre I did enjoy this historical romance. Some times you just want to read a smooth ride that you know will get to your happy destination.
