This is book #2 in Sea...

This is book #2 in Seasons for Scandal series and the premise for it is that its protagonists belong to a firm, Chegarre & Associates, that is doing the damage control for the messes that aristocracy creates for themselves or finds themselves in. Sort of like detective agency. This is Elise deVries story. She is an actress on occasion but full time associate to Ivory [the heroine in the previous book], and Alexander Lavoie, Elise's brother. Elise takes on a case to help Lady Abigail Ellery find her brother Noah who's been missing for twenty years. Their father has passed on and with Noah presumed dead, their mean cousin is poised to inherit the duchy. To complicate things even further, their mother had been committed to Bedlam because she kept saying her son is alive.Ms. Bowen has created not just an intriguing heroine, but she's created a hero that so reminded me of Laura Kinsale's Duke of Jervaulx from 'Flowers from the Storm'. Noah was handsome and heartwarming, yet complex. What he lived through as a child, and the horrors he survived, I was glad to see him still maintain his sanity and humor. This is a complex, warm and enthralling tale that will stay with you for a long time.Ms. Bowen better have King's story planned because this character had made a lasting impression on this reader!Melanie for b2bComplimentary copy provided by the publisher

Scandal and coverup. D...

Scandal and coverup. Delicious! I've read about about the practice of confining nuscience relatives or those whose demise would be profitable for the less scrupulous relatives to Bedlam in other novels. Obviously in real life it was a not so rare occurence. It certainly makes for a masterful opening scene here. I find the characters and the situation intriguing. Elsie DeVries has a longer story hinted at--still deep waters. By night an actress and by day (or other times) she works for an agency that solves potentially scandalous situations surrounding the aristocracy. (I love the invention of such an agency. Doubtless it could have been used in that Downton Abbey episode with the death of the Russian in Lady Mary's bed!) Noah Ellery is a gift. The air sparks between these two right from the get go. But Elsie has a job to do for Chegarre & Associates. Find the Duke of Ashland and bring him home before assassins find him This has it all--Beautiful women, mystery, deception and raw and untrammelled love! A NetGalley ARC

4.5 The Forgotten Duk...

4.5 "The Forgotten Duke & His Resourceful Savior" Stars for the story and narration! What a pleasant and captivating surprise! I really loved the depth and originality of the characters in A Duke to Remember. The story was well done and kept me hooked throughout. This was my first book by Kelly Bowen, and I will undoubtedly be looking for more. Moreover, I found Ashford McNab's narration pleasing and additive to the allure of this remarkable story. So this audibook is a win/win all around! If you have a problem you'd like discreetly handled the firm of Chegarre & Associates is your firm to call. Set in London in 1819, A Duke to Remember, takes Elise deVries, one of the Chegarre & Associates, on an interesting assignment to locate a Duke (the Duke of Ashland) long thought dead. Moreover, time is of the essence as the life of his mother may very well depend on it. Noah Ellery, the true heir and Duke of Ashland has been hiding out in the country for most of his life. Fleeing a life and secrets that his family has long tried to bury, the Duke of Ashland never thought to return to claim his rightful inheritance. But when a spirited woman happens to run in to him in the isolated town where he has been hiding out, he is forced to face feelings he never thought he would feel. Perhaps even worse, when it becomes clear that Elise is hiding more than a sure talent for wielding a weapon and generally being ingeniously resourceful, but instead has also failed to immediately reveal why she has happened to "stumble" upon him, Noah is forced to face the deep dark secrets that he long thought he had left in the past. But can a romance built on secrets ever lead to a true HEA? Ashford McNab delivers a stunning performance in A Duke to Remember. From her characterization of the independent, strong and clever Elise to the self-made and regal Duke of Ashland, Ms. McNab's voicings of each character perfectly coincide with the personalities that Ms. Bowen has written for each. Additionally, this distinctiveness of character's voices makes it easy to distinguish the speaker in each dialogue without having to rely on dialogue tags. Perhaps one of the things that I found the most enjoyable was that Ms. McNab was able to improvise as the book went along. In that regard, the Duke of Ashford occasionally suffers from bouts of stuttering and Ms. McNab was able to seamlessly move from the passages where the Duke's speech was imperial and flawless, to the ones where his nerves caused his speech to suffer, with apparent ease. All in all, I found a Duke to Remember to be an enjoyable historical romance audiobook. Not only was Ms. Ashford's narration expertly produced, but Ms. Bowen has proved with this memorable story (only her sixth book) that she is a new author that historical romance enthusiasts will undoubtedly want on their radar!

Come with me to old Lo...

Come with me to old London, where actress Elise de Vries captivates theatergoers with her nightly performances. But there's more to this young woman than meets the eye. When not onstage, Miss de Vries users her skills at disguise to work undercover for a firm of private detectives who specialize in handling scandals among the ton. Her latest case is to find a missing duke and bring him back to London to claim his rightful heritage, offer protection to his sister and mother, and banish his greedy cousin who is trying to snatch the duchy for himself. Quite by chance the charming actress, in disguise as a young man, locates the recalcitrant duke but convincing him that his life is in danger and that he must return to London isn't as easy as she'd hoped. You see, the duke has been living the life of a country farmer and is quite content to leave behind those who abandoned him as a five-year-old child. Along the way the reader will find herself falling in love with Noah (the duke) and enjoying the steamy romance that blossoms between him and Miss de Vries. He tries valiantly to put his duties off but when he risks losing the woman he loves (Elise) he steps up to claim his heritage. Will he truly have to choose between his mantle of responsibility and the woman he loves? A steadily paced story that is full of twists yet offers the reader the requisite outcome of happily ever after. I thoroughly enjoyed this romp through the outskirts of London with a twist that is reminiscent of the American West.

Elise, acting for Cheg...

Elise, acting for Chegarre and Associates, is asked to help free an elderly lady from Bedlam. To do so, she needs to locate her son, who was thought to have been insane as a child and then died. However, when Elise tracks him down, he is both sane and alive. She then has to persuade him to assume his rightful title and rescue his mother. Elise and Noah were lovely together, and there was (thankfully) no big misunderstanding. Perhaps a little less action than the first in the series and I had hoped to have seen more of Ivory and Max.
