While I have found many first books in a series to have a typical brash, abrasive hero who is "tamed" by a sweet, beguiling heroine, this story is still able to capture your attention and keep you engaged throughout the development of the characters and plot. I find Putney's writing fresh and thorough in a way some other authors don't provide. There is a completeness to the books that I find immensely satisfying. I have read numerous titles by this author, as well as the rest of the books in this series, and this is definitely worth your time!

This book had me from the beginning! It felt like a seduction itself! The story was a wonderfully slow burning thing that just kept getting better and better as it went on. Clare is a preacher's daughter. Taught how to be everything for everyone. The one thing she wanted, she did not often have, her father's attention. Nicholas is the "Demon Earl" who owns most of the property in the area. Clare goes to talk to him about he conditions in the coal mine on his property. What follows is an enticingly eccentric tale of the Earl and how he likes to play with people. Until one day he realizes he is having much more fun that he thought he would. He proposes a bargain in exchange for taking the town's problems in hand. Clare is just desperate enough to take him up on his offer. She feels he made it just so she would refuse! The story is rife with sexual tension, witty banter, and intrigue! I highly recommend this book! I'd love to say more, but I don't like spoilers so I will let you decide! *Courtesy Copy*

Set in Wales. MJP uses Penguins, slate mines, billiard tables and the Welsh countryside to write a compelling novel of a demon earl (half-gypsy) and a not-so exotic heroine, appropriately named Clare. Clare is Welsh, and the daughter of a Methodist minister. She finds herself in a compromising position (several, actually, and few on the billiards table) in an effort to make working conditions better for coal miners.

Great set-up for the Fallen Angels series. This is Nicholas' story as he returns to Penreith in Wales determined not to get involved with village life but Clare does not allow that to happen. She challenges him to make the mine there better though he owns the land but not the mine. Clare challenges him throughout the story on many levels. I loved Clare and Nicholas. They were a strong match. Each gave as good as he/she got. Neither got away with much. I loved watching them trying to outmaneuver one another in their game of wits. The build-up of the sexual tension was fantastic. It made the book. The story line and the secondary lines were well done and believable. The duel scene, the two big mine scenes, the escape scene, and the last scene had me on the edge of my seat. I felt like I was there living through these scenes. I figured out why Michael (one of the Fallen Angels) hated and was trying to kill Nicholas before the end of the book but I wondered how long it would take to get the reason out of Michael. Thunder and Roses is so well done, I look forward to the rest of the series.
