I enjoyed reading this series

Awakening Amelia is the 3rd book in the Diable Delamere series by Kate Pearce. I highly recommend reading at least the first book in the series, Educating Elizabeth, in order to get acquainted with the back story. In typical Kate Pearce style, this story has an intriguing plot with excellent character development. I fell in love with both Amelia and Marcus. Even though Amelia was a very independent, no-nonsense kind of woman, I enjoyed how she showed Marcus her soft side without being made to look weak. The author also did a great job portraying Marcus' character as a strong hero despite his amnesia and a very loving, caring man. All in all this was a great addition to the Diable Delamere series and I cannot wait to back up a step and read both Jack and Michael's stories. ARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Let me start off by saying that I'm not going repeat what the story is about because I assume you will already have read the blurb above before checking out the reviews. That being said, I have to tell you that I absolutely LOVED this book!! The whole series actually (which I started yesterday and finished this afternoon. That's 3.5 books in 2 days!! A new record for me :) ) I literally could not put it down because I had to find out what happened next. If you're like me and you like your hero's strong, yet vulnerable, then Marcus was written for you to perfection by Ms. Pearce. Tortured by war and a loss of memory yet still strong enough to stand up to his adversaries he is written very well. Amelia, the heroine, is his perfect match. She also suffered a loss during war but learned to be strong and independent to overcome the tragedy. I have a feeling I will be reading their story over and over again. Well written characters, both main and secondary. Strong story line with nothing left hanging in the conclusion. It's also has some very steamy love scenes! Although it has an epilogue, which I really like, I wish it had been longer and gave more of a closing story to characters from the previous books. That is really the only downside to this. The epilogue is good, don't get me wrong, I just like a longer one :) This book could be read as a stand alone but will be more enjoyable if you read them in order. My opinion only. #1 Educating Elizabeth (Gervase & Elizabeth) #2 Redeeming Jack (Jack & Carys) #2.5 Loving Michael (Michael & Angelique) NOVELLA This book has a quick paced, easy to read fast flowing story line with no lag at all. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author :)

Excellent historical romance. Amelia lost her husband during the war she finds a soldier unconscious in the street and takes him home to care for him. When the soldier wakes up he has no memory of who he is. They begin the journey of finding out who he is and what happened to him and end up growing closer in the process. Will the secrets they reveal keep them together or tear them apart? This read has plenty of suspense and drama with some steamy love scenes. Loved the story as well as the characters a great read!

Awakening Amelia (Diable Delamere Book 3) This is the story of Amelia Smith , a widow who lost her husband during the war and has made it her mission in life to lend a helping hand to soldiers who need it. So when she happens to come by a soldier, Marco , unconscious in the street, she immediately goes into caretaker mode and takes him home. Now you guys already know this is a romance story so it's gonna get sexy. Although not as erotic as Kate's usual works, Marco and Amelia still gave off plenty of sparks :) Amelia is such a beautiful soul ... gah, I just didn't want this story to end! The suspense of the story is quite addictive. You can't help but be completely invested. As Marco and Amelia both search for answers of his past, you will be right there with them ... wanting badly to know the who what when of it all! Kate created characters in Amelia and Marco that were absolutely perfect for one another. Both with baggage. Both searching for answers. Both just incredibly suited for one another. Both developing and growing thru each other towards a well deserved HEA! I absolutely LOVED this story and I highly recommend it! It should be noted that altho the story of Amelia and Marco can be read as a standalone, there are intertwined characters thru this entire series and I highly recommend you start from the beginning with Educating Elizabeth, which introduces the suspenseful arc that flows thru all 4 stories in this series.

I was delighted when I was given a free copy of this book by Kate for a review... I love everything I have ever read written by Kate Pearce. This book was no exception. Kate's historic books are rich in history, characterization and sensuality. She teases our senses and creates visions that will stay with you long after the story has ended. I really didn't want to let go of these two people as they fit so well together and completed each other. They both needed each other and I am so glad they found each other in Kate's imagination. This is the conclusion of the Diable Delamere series with Amelia Smith who is the widow of a fallen war soldier she defied her family and married. She's back in England living had to mouth with her late husband's aunt as her family disowned her when she married. She finds an unconscious man in the village that appears to be a war veteran. He finally wakes with no memory of who he is or how he got there. The story unfolds as Amelia and Marco/Marcus finds clues to his history and in the process he "awakens" Amelia to getting on with her life as she's been treading water with kind and lonely Aunt Betty. The intrigue and mystery of this story kept me reading. I had read #2.5 Loving Michael and this story drove me to read #1 Educating Elizabeth which I discovered I already on my Nook in the A Taste Of Scandal Box Set. I'll have to get #2 Redeeming Jack as these two stories are intertwined in the conclusion of the series in this book.

The title of this story, and my knowledge of the author's other works immediately made me assume that this was going to be an erotic historical romance. It isn't - instead it's a lovely, thoughtful and interesting story (with some sexy love scenes) of widowed Amelia, who finds a soldier in the street suffering from amnesia. She cares for him, and as he slowly regains his memory, a mystery remains - who is he, what really happened to him, and how did he end up back in England. Along the way, Amelia and Marco find themselves falling for each other, and when they arrange a marriage of convenience, it soon turns to more. I really enjoyed the story as it moved at a good pace, with the romance and the drama intertwined. Actually I had a hard time putting it down, because I wanted to know about Marco's past as much as he did! Amelia has her own secrets that gradually get revealed too, and the two of them were really a perfect match by the time all was said and done. It's a heartwarming tale of love found, and a sexy and entertaining read. 4 stars.
