    Too much rank sex, not enough romance.

    I am not a prude and appreciate a little eroticism in historical romances but this one went too far. The storyline had potential until every other page was a drawn out sex scene. It just went too far - and again I am not a prude! So if you like a lot of meaningless raunchy sex, knock yourself out with this one. I quit reading before the author introduced auto erotic asphyxiation (I'm jusr speculating here). Overall disappointing.

    Revenge Never Seemed So Sexy

    Galen has vowed to take revenge against the woman who betrayed his late friend John. Now back in England, he discovers that Miss Haley Moreland is betrothed to another man, so soon after John, her fiancé, has passed away, and she seems as merry as ever. Can she be so cold and unfeeling, or is there another motive at work? Galen believes that only one thing can set this matter straight. He must first seduce her and win her heart. Then he must destroy her. Unfortunately for Galen, the matter may be a little more complicated than he expects. A seductive plot unfolds in Revenge Wears Rubies, the newest novel from award-winning romance author Renee Bernard. Bernard is well-known as an author of erotic historical romances that tend to captivate readers with their depth and imagination. Her latest work is the first component of a series that is set in classic Victorian England. Revenge Wears Rubies an excellent reading choice for anyone who appreciates contemporary romance with classic elements or historical settings, and, of course, fans of Bernard's previous work will be anxiously awaiting the arrival of this piece on bookstore shelves.

    A terrific Victorian romance

    In 1857 he survived imprisonment in Bengal, India. Now two tears later, Galen Hawke is in England still suffering nightmares only to find the fiancée of the late John, one of the other seven English prisoners, enjoying her first season rather than grieving his death. He vows to teach Miss Haley Moreland, engaged to Herbert Trumble, a lesson she will never forget.

    Haley is ignorant that her childhood friend John felt they were engaged; as he never asked and she never had to respond. Her biggest issue is to keep her family from poverty, which means marrying wealth. However, upon meeting Galen, she is attracted to him while he wants to seduce and ergo destroy her. As he begins to reassess what he thought he knew about Haley, she ponders whether to marry for love or money that is if Galen even considers marrying her.

    This terrific Victorian romance grips the audience with the opening nightmare as an enthralled audience watches how the vendetta of a Jaded Gentleman plays out. Fast-paced throughout as her sly father observes, fans will appreciate Galen's thirst for vengeance turn to admiration and love, but might prove too late. With "Sapphires" to follow, sub-genre readers will enjoy the first of the Jaded Gentleman tales.

    I love this book. Renee interweaves a suspenseful, mystery story with romance. The sex scenes is a little intense and may not be for everyone. I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series.

    I Also Recommend:

    Great Plot w/Lots of Passion!

    Galen Hawk, one of the "Jaded" was imprisoned with a group of men in India. While in India, he was tortured and left in the darkness. When he escaped with his countrymen, they fled back to England where they formed their club "The Jaded". Galen has constant nightmares of his imprisonment and of one of the men befriended in the infernal nightmare of imprisonment, John, who died in his arms while trying to flee. Galen meets Haley, who was John's betrothed (though not really), and since she is betrothed now, to another without even mourning John, Galen seeks revenge in trying to ruin her. Passion explodes between Galen and Haley until Galen can't deny that he has fallen in love with her and can't go through his initial plan of revenge. This was a such a great plot and I loved the romance and passion that played out. I can't wait to read the next in the series by Renee Bernard! This will stay as a definite fixture in my ever-growing library of romance so I can read it over and over again!

    Highly recommend

    I've enjoyed all of Renee's books and this one was maybe the best so far. The storyline kept my interest and I found the characters engaging. This book had great sensuality as well.
