Reviewed by April Gilly for Readers' Favorite A Lady's Addiction by Angelina Jameson is the love story of Anna, Lady Stafford, and Devlyn Maitlin, second son of a marquis. Their meeting was an accident, but one that would have had to happen eventually as Devlyn was working on figuring out who was blackmailing his sister-in-law, what leverage they had, and how buried in it Anna was. Anna made the mistake of befriending the wrong woman and was unknowingly handed to the blackmailer. When Franco's original plan is ruined, he must come up with different leverage and quickly decides that Anna will pay him to keep silent about who her friend's son's father really is. Anna and Devlyn work together to keep the boy safe and try to keep their hearts safe as they fall in love. Will they be able to work out their differences and get their happily ever after once the boy is safe, or will they part ways knowing they wouldn't fit the mold society is pushing them into? Through it all, Anna is fighting her addiction to alcohol; will she win the battle or will the stress of life send her back to the bottle? A Lady's Addiction by Angelina Jameson is very realistic. The path that Anna had to travel to get clean from the alcohol and the journey to stay clean is one that I've dealt with personally, thanks to family, and I feel that Angelina Jameson hit it spot on. Anna struggled and had the help needed to get clean and stay clean, and started to view it as a success each time she didn't drink, which is how an alcoholic feels each time the bottle loses. The imagery was very detailed and often put me right there with Anna and Devlyn as their story unfolded. Anna's and Devlyn's emotions and thoughts change in a realistic pattern and if A Lady's Addiction wasn't fiction, I would swear Anna and Devlyn were based on people that I know!

What a FANTASTIC debut!! I received a copy of 'A Lady's Addiction' from the author, in exchange for an honest review. I hadn't read ANYTHING by Angelina Jameson before, but the cover & blurb had me intrigued, so I jumped at the chance to read this book. I ABSOLUTELY FLOVED this book, the historical genre is a favourite of mine, a change of pace, a palate cleanser from all the darkness I've been reading lately. There are alot of ways an author from today's age can get things wrong when dealing so closely with a historical fiction, from the fashion, the customs, to the way a couple is allowed to interract with one another.... Angelina showed when reading that she'd done her homework extensively. Everything weaved so well together, it felt like I was in a Jane Austen at times & then at other times I was in a Sir Conan Doyle, & this her DEBUT. Lady Anna is almost at the end of her mourning period, thinking herself frigid, no thanks to her departed husband, she undertakes a meeting in private to see if she has any chance of finding joy in becoming a wife again. Her meeting doesn't turnout exactly how she plans, but she leanrs what she always knew & she returns home & decides to start sociallising amoungst the Ton again. Devlyn has finally returned home from his assignment in the Foreign Office, his first night home, a door opens to reveal a beautiful women, a misunderstanding, a scoarching kiss... A women who doesn't leave his thoughts. But she isn't the reason he's home, but soon he finds a link between her & his sister-inlaw. There was so much happening in this book, so many secrets being kept, ladies of the Ton being blackmailed, a poison, a husband to catch, & descisions to make. Is it more important to find a husband who can father a child or find a husband with love in your heart?? That's exactly what Lady Anna has to decide whilst everything is occuring around her. This book certainly kept me riveted, I'd started the book early in the evening, thinking I'd get a few chapters in before bed, then next thing I knew it was finished & it was 3am. I loved how you got to read from several POV's making you understand more about the WHY a certain character did what. I can honestly say, that I await Angelina's next book with bated breath. Is it going to be a continuation with other characters from this book?? I surely hope so, I think Devlyn's man servant & his brother need their own story told & soon.

While this was a debut book, the writing was very good. I rarely give a book 5 stars. This was close. I do like that the heroine didn't wake up one day and find herself free from addiction. There are some spicy bits in the story so if that turns you off that may be a problem. I enjoyed the book and hope there will be a sequel about the brother Cameron
