About the Author

The author of several Regency Noir Romances, Ava Stone first fell in love with Mr. Darcy, Jane Austen and Regency England at the age of twelve. And in the years since, that love has never diminished. If she isn't writing Regency Era romance, she can be found reading it.

Her best-selling Scandalous Series is filled with witty humor and centers around the friends and family of the Machiavellian-like Lady Staveley, exploring deep themes but with a light touch. A single mother, Ava lives outside Raleigh NC, but she travels extensively, always looking for inspiration for new stories and characters in the various locales she visits.

Together with Tammy Falkner, Ava makes up 1/2 of the Lydia Dare Paranormal Regency writing team.

This was a delightful read. Kelfield is one of my favorite characters now. I enjoyed every moment as his world was turned upside down with the added insult of being rejected, for the first time in his life. And Olivia was a delightful character, holding onto promises and dreams of the past as she tries desperately to deny her desire for Kelfield. I can't wait to read the rest of the books written by Ava Stone.

I just read this book and all I can say is wow! I am excited about discovering a new author with an exciting distinctive voice. The character of Alex has automatically become one of my all time favorite hero's and that saying a lot! I thought the love story between he and Olivia was tender and passionate. I love when a man is not afraid to show his feelings and still be incredibly sexy and passionate. Do not miss out on this author or this book!

Do not begin this this book unless you are willing to pay for the conclusion of it. It stops in the middle and makes you buy the rest!!

It started out reading more like a predator type story, but managed to make that not the case, then turned into the classic 'rake being brought to heel'. Nothing different to this story than others in the same genre.

A little sweet, a lot naughty, this story of love growing between Olivia and Alex is a nice regency story. Predictable, but a fun quick read

The Duke of Kelfield is one of the most notorious rakes in London, and Olivia Danbury is an innocent miss just trying to have a little fun at a country house party. These two could not be more different, but when they are caught in what appears to be a compromising position, they decide to make the best of it and get married. Complications abound, what with former fiances, former mistresses, and an adorable daughter thrown into the mix. Do they have a chance at a happy marriage? Each is determined to give it a try. There are a lot of emotions in this story, from the giddiness of falling in love, to the heartbreak of betrayal and memories of a troubled past. Plus there is plenty of steamy romance. The duke is a hard character to like sometimes, but it's easy to see why the sweet Olivia would be his perfect duchess. I listened to the audiobook version and really enjoyed this book in Ava Stone's Scandalous series. The Regency characters really come to life with Stevie Zimmerman's narration. She did a good job with all the characters, both male and female. There were a lot of characters to keep straight, so it was quite a feat.

I came across this auther and decided to give her a try since i like my cocky duke and rouge's. This was a good read. only thing for me was the love scenes were not great. They were lacking.they had sex all the time but with verry little detail. The book would have been perfect if not for the love scenes. I will try another book and hope that the next book has more passion...
