What do you do when you think you've married a charming earl but he turns out to be a loathsome toad instead? You plot with your best girl friends how to kill him, of course! Lady Cecily Nottingham isn't really going to kill her husband (she's not that desperate yet), but she is open to all options for ways of escaping this marriage. She's willing to do anything, even cause a scandal so great her husband Flavion will want to divorce her. She's only half serious about seducing someone and bringing about a divorce, until her husband's handsome, serious, and honorable cousin Stephen comes back from his world travels. Suddenly, the idea doesn't seem that far-fetched, and it certainly wouldn't be a hardship! Stephen has come back to help his cousin save the earldom from his neglect, mismanagement, and debt, but he doesn't realize how badly things have been messed up. For the life of him, he can't figure out why Flavion would betray his beautiful and kind wife. Stephen has always done all he could to help his cousin, despite his many flaws, but this may be too much for him to fix this time. I really enjoyed this story because it takes you behind the scenes of what could happen in the Regency era when a marriage turned out not to be happily-ever-after. There was very little a wife could do, and nothing that would preserve her honor and dignity. The romance was sizzling, but at times the story was heartbreaking because there didn't seem to be a way for Cecily and Stephen to be together without destroying their reputations and hurting those around them. But there was also plenty of humor throughout the book, as well as a hint of danger. I enjoyed the writing style, and it kept me interested until the end. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.

Hell Hath No Fury is a well-written and entertaining read. Despite a few phrases that were a bit out of place with time, Anders does a good job of setting the scene and drawing the reader in. We also get some suspense with our romance as the honorable Stephen and our fiery heroine, Cecily, work to manipulate Flavion, and it appears that someone is out to get rid of Cecily... Permanently. The chemistry between Stephen and Cecily can't be denied, even though Stephen's honor demands that he do just that and the banter between them adds some wit and fun to the story. With some characters we can love and some we can love to hate, this romance kept me turning pages to see if this pair would get their happy ever after and if the bumbling Flavion would get his just desserts. Overall, this is a solid debut from Anders and I look forward to seeing what's next from this author.

Review: A beautiful regency romance story. “Hell Hath No Fury” By Annabelle Anders is a great unpredictable historical romance fictional tale. Cecily, the main character, married a rotten cheating Earl. She thought he was the love of her life only to find out on her wedding night that he only married her for her dowry and that he was in love with someone else. Cecily, devastated devises a plan to seduce her husband's cousin in an attempt for revenge. But as time progresses she finds that Stephen, her husband’s cousin, is the opposite of her awful husband, the count. Stephen is honorable and handsome. What follows is a roller coaster of emotions, fights and love. I thoroughly enjoyed this well written story of love, betrayal and happily ever after. Readers are immediately placed amidst the scene of this period piece. The descriptions of the surroundings are vivid and enticing. The author, Annabelle Anders, has a way with words and describes the setting and characters in such a way that it moves the reader’s imaginary senses. She writes with much detail and forethought. I was captivated by the plot right from the beginning. It is filled with danger, love, and intrigue. I couldn’t put it down and turned the pages quickly to find out what would happen next. This is a fresh and unique work of regency fiction. I think all readers will appreciate and revel in this book. I am looking forward to reading more books by author Annabelle Anders. She has real creative talent and great writing skills. I fully recommend “Hell Hath No Fury.” It is excellent!” Book Reviewed By Chick Lit Cafe http://www.chicklitcafe.com

Humor, romance, anger and I couldn't guess what was happening. I found myself talking with phrases from this book. Once I entered I easily joined the characters and became a part of the story. This book is well written and gets the reader engaged with the story. I look forward to reading more from this Author.

It's dangerous, endearing, dramatic scandal. Hell Hath No Fury should be renamed, It's complicated. Cecily married for love, will she cheat for the same reason? Two people are caught up in the machinations of a devious plot that can only end in heartache. Love is a battlefield and Ms. Anders puts readers right on the front lines. A tempting display of romance.

Hell Hath No Fury Annabelle Anders *Disclaimer: I received this book as an ARC from the author. The following review is my own, with no input, promises, or payment from the author*. All through my teens and into my early twenties all I pretty much read were historical romances. Smut books based in regency England, or the Wild West. Now in my late thirties I tend to read pretty much all genres, except historical romances. So, with that being said, I decided to dip back into a forgotten favorite. Now, back then it was Johanna Lindsay, Amanda Quick, and Connie Mason for my favored authors. Ms. Anders fits right in with their writing style. It’s a fast paced, fun read with some mystery and a little lovin’ to spice things up. The story is well written, with entertaining characters that pull at you. I loved the interactions between Cecily and her group of friends. Those young ladies are an absolute hoot. The plots they hatch, the support they give, every woman needs a group of friends just as loyal. I look forward to more from this author

"Hell Hath No Fury" by Annabelle Anders published July 2017 This is Cecily Nottingham's story. Most regency romances begin with the girl meeting the boy and then they fall in love, have problems and then marry or something along that time line. Well this story starts out with Cecily already married and then the problems begin! Cecily married who she thought was the love of her life to find out on her wedding night immediately after the marriage had been consummated ( and I mean immediately as her husband was climbing out of bed) that her husband, Flavion, Earl of Nottingham, announced to her that he had married her for her dowry alone. In fact he had a lover and exhibited no discretion whatsoever at any of the ton events. He had married her to get her money! Her friends Emily, Sophia, and Rhoda had come up with all sorts of plots to murder him but finally came up with the idea that Cecily should do something so terrible that Flavion would divorce her, Sophia came up with the idea that Cecily could present him with another man's child. But who could she seduce? Enters Flavion's cousin, Stephen Nottingham. If she was to free herself she would have to do something drastic and seducing his cousin, Stephen would make him very very angry. Stephen was the very opposite of Flavion... Honorable, loyal, and trustworthy. Would Stephen compromise his honor? Read to find out if Stephen succumbs to Cecily's seduction. There are dangers (snakes) for Cecily and duels for Flavion. This book from Annabelle Anders is truly an original regency romance. The plot is unusual. I believe you will be sorry if don't read this one. Happy Reading!
