    1. I guess if you like the heroine suffering and sacrificing for the slut shaming douchebag hero, while also succumbing to the power of his magic stick, then this is the book for you The characters are inconsistent and their actions and words correlate not at all, saying one thing and then proceeding to do something completely different This book was the very definition of And, one of the most annoying aspects is that heroine started off so well Maggie was still angry with Simon when she saw him ag [...]


    2. 3.5 Rese a completa masromance 201Siegue mucho la tono de la entrega anterior Tiene cosas que se pueden mejorar pero a mi esta mujer me entretiene mucho, sobre todo, por la originalidad de las protagonistas y de algunas de las escenas que planteaCierto que el vocabulario, a veces, es demasiado trivial, pero no s si es la autora o la traducci n Y es el mismo que me he encontrado en otras de autoras de xito anglosajonas.Maggie me ha gustado mucho, una buena combinaci n de fortaleza y debilidad, ca [...]


    3. Flojo, muy flojo.Simon me gust mucho en el anterior libro y estaba deseando leer su historia, pero ha sido un desprop sito total.Falta de argumentos, enamoramiento instant nea, prejuicios a mansalva, escenas de cama propias de adolescente y un final apresurado.Si siguiese con la serie, ser a por Quinn, pero tampoco quiero arriesgarme y llevarme un palazo como con Simon.Ay se or, ll vame pronto.


    4. I like to thank the publisher and the author for kindly giving me an ARC I sense you understood how badly I wanted to read The Harlot Countess and I mean badly.Moving on.I find it harder and harder every time to like the heroine of a good romance story because they re either too whinny, too stupid, too boring, too exasperating too something.With Joanna Shupe s books, it isn t the case Not only is the first book The Courtesan Duchess a brilliant romance story, it has a lovable heroine, whom I am [...]


    5. 3 5 Estrellas, me ha gustado, pero no tanto como el primero Lo que puedo decir a favor de la escritora es que tiene algunas originalidades, peculiaridades etc como si fuese una reinventora de la novela de Regencia.En sta novela se toca un tema muy sensible, c mo puede afectarle a una mujer inocente una acusaci n totalmente infundada, y todo el da o que puede hacerle a su vida Maggie era una joven irlandesa y adinerada con un futuro brillante, pero una acusaci n enga osa de un noble arruin su vid [...]


    6. Otro libro estupendo, entretenido y original de esta autora Definitivamente va a mi lista de autoras prometedoras La historia me a gustado, incluso odiandole a l hasta casi el final Ella es una gran protagonista, su personaje me a encantado, creativa, inteligente, firme en sus decisiones y opiniones El punto er tico de las novelas de Shupe tambi n son un punto a su favor Los secundario tambi n muy destacables, tengo ganas de saber la historia de Quint y Sophia Aunque el misterio de la trama para [...]


    7. No me gust tanto como esperaba pero tampoco fue malo Lo que pasa es que no conecte con ninguno de los protagonistas, no me enamoraron ni me hicieron esperar cada aparici n Como si lo hicieron los extras de esta historia Ya estoy esperando con ansias el 3 libro Espero que me guste tanto como el primero haha.


    8. M s bien ser an 3 5 estrellas.Aunque este segundo volumen de la serie mantiene un nivel que las lectoras de rom ntica exigentes siempre agradecemos la verdad esta novela no me ha llegado tanto como la anterior, la de Julia y Nick.A ver, encontramos una historia bien construida y con unos personajes bien definidos Pero en mi modesta opini n le ha faltado un je ne sais pas quoi A comparaci n de La duquesa cortesana encontramos quiz s m s t picos de la novela rom ntica Los t picos en si mismos no s [...]


    9. Si algo tienen estos libros es la originalidad dentro de las historias t picas de regencia y eso es algo que gana muchos puntos conmigo, adem s de hablar m s abiertamente de temas que otras autoras no profundizan tanto.En cuanto a la trama, me ha gustado mucho sobre todo a partir de la segunda mitad, cuando ya el pastel es descubierto y empieza una carrera contra reloj para poder llegar a una meta concreta No digo m s para no spoilear Si de algo me tengo que quejar, es que todo se ha solucionado [...]


    10. I liked this book a lot than I liked its predecessor I never went back and updated my review on the first one, but I did finally go back and finish it and ick The versions of the Duke and Duchess of Colton we got in this book are far superior to the Julia and Nick we got in The Courtesan Duchess You know how Regency romances are always threatening Ruination on the heroine for events that may or may not be her fault, so of course she has to get married to the hero at some point and you re always [...]


    11. My MusingsI am so glad I found this amazing series I read the first book and had to immediately purchase the second one The Harlot Countess pulled me into the glittering world of Regency England with the vivid descriptions of the attire and setting Maggie, the widowed Lady Hawkins, is an artist known as Lemarc Her drawings depict members of society in less than favorable light, especially Simon Barrett, the eighth Earl of Winchester, a man who wants to become prime minister someday.The last thin [...]


    12. Read only if you re interested in reading about a hypocritical, self absorbed ass of a hero, who s choking on his man pain for most of the book, and an artist heroine, who s great at the beginning but sadly much less impressive for the rest of the book and that s putting it mildly Beware, this noxious cocktail also includes the Healing Power of Magic Wang thank God the hero is so good at fucking, because now the Harlot Countess heroine knows she s not frigid Because of course the harlot heroine [...]


    13. The Harlot Countess is the second in the Wicked Deception Series by new author, Joanna Shupe and features a couple who reunite after ten years following a traumatic and acrimonious parting.Maggie has suffered a debutante s worst nightmare scandal Through no fault of her own she is shunned by the ton and as a result is rushed off to marry a man 30 years her senior She is a resilient girl, however, and with resigned acceptance makes the most of a bad lot Her elderly husband quickly loses interest [...]


    14. I really enjoyed Maggie and Simon s story Maggie is a very different historical romance heroine, she is a widow, and she actually works, and enjoys working Maggie s debut almost 10 years ago was awful she fell in love with Simon, but was then ostracized by society after a disreputable man ripped her dress She had to marry an older man to remain somewhat respectable in order to not taint her younger sister s chances of finding a husband Maggie isn t even unhappy with her first marriage, it gave h [...]


    15. I ve given this a B for both content and narration at AudioGals.This is the middle book in Joanna Shupe s Wicked Deceptions trilogy, and having enjoyed the first book, The Courtesan Duchess, in print I gave it a B at AAR , I decided to pick up the second in audio The author impressed me with her storytelling and her ability to create strong, well defined characters as well as to turn up the heat with some crackling sexual tension and steamy love scenes The Harlot Countess is certainly no slacker [...]


    16. When scandal strikes for Maggie, the one person she thought would stand up for her turns his back on her in her time of need, thus changing her life forever.Years later, Maggie, now a widow trying to survive with the moniker of the Harlot Countess and a her unwillingness to bend to the rules of the ton who so easily shunned her Necessity and talent have transformed Maggie s tragedy into a sort of triumph when she uses her art to build her life by reinventing herself as the artist Lemarc.Simon Ba [...]


    17. Lady Maggie Hawkins has a terrible season When she is ruined by a rumor, Simon turn his back on her Lady Maggie s heart was broken because she thought she could count on the one person who knew her The one person she thought would marry her Lady Maggie went away and came back stronger She don t need or want the Ton s opinion Lady Maggie loved art and is drawing under a male pseudonym name Lemarc Lemarc s favorite subject is Simon The race begins when Simon has to find out who is drawing about hi [...]


    18. Wow I think I like this book better than the first in this series Simon, who appeared to be a smart guy in the first book, is not so smart when it comes to Maggie He fell for her in her first season, but something happened and he walked away while she was ostracized by society Now she s having a little revenge until bad things start happening No plot spoilers from me I will say I like that the heroines in this series try to help less fortunate women This was a fun, enjoyable read.


    19. Est bastante entretenido, aunque no me ha gustado tanto como el primero Al contrario que en el otro libro, me ha gustado m s la primera parte que la segunda Lo mejor ha sido la historia de las caricaturas de Lemarc.Rese a completa cazadorasdelromance critic



    20. Originally Reviewed For Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and FantasyJoanna Shupe is becoming a name worth reading I first discovered her last month with The Courtesan Duchess and totally fell in love Wickedly wonderful and delightfully devious The Harlot Countess is book two in Ms Shupe s Wicked Deception Series and continues on the in her sensual slide.Lady Maggie Hawkins has had it rough As a debutante she was ruined and society turned it s back on her Even the man she loved didn t believe the li [...]


    21. Maggie, Lady Hawkins would rather forget her debut of ten years ago One hateful event forced her to marry a man old enough to be her father Today, a widow and working painting under the pseudonym of the artist Lemarc he she is able to ridicule the one man who broke her heart Simon Barrett, Earl of Winchester Since Simon is a rising star in Parliament he is determined to discover the identity of Lemarc who has made him the fodder of mockery known as the cartoon Winejester He has never forgotten t [...]


    22. Check out reviews at Little Miss Bookmark Lady Hawkins has a secret Quite a few of them actually She is an artist and a political cartoonist But no one can know Mostly because her favorite target is a highly influential man in Parliament and her first love The Earl of Winchester is a man that she loves to hate and hates to love Her secret has been kept under wraps for ages At least until the Earl asks her to help find this mysterious cartoonist and Lady Hawkins is dead set in sending him on a w [...]


    23. Posted on What I m ReadingI foresee Joanna Shupe as becoming one of my favorite authors With her debut story The Courtesan Duchess she had me captivated with the story, and she does it again in The Harlot Countess This story is awesome Plus, you are going to have a love hate relationship with Simon, because he s just a pompous ass throughout the story If you read The Courtesan Duchess you would remember Simon as a great guy helping Julia find her husband Now if you haven t I would recommend read [...]


    24. Putting aside a personal niggle I have, it s a simple fact Joanna Shupe is one of the best new historical romance authors around Though her first book wasn t perfect, I saw lots of potential, and I enjoyed this one even .Though it has been done in various ways before, the setup for the conflict in this book really drew me in A young girl with hopes of marriage to a young man she loves the hero A man who inexplicably shuns her right when she needs him the most Revenge and reunion and all the kind [...]




    25. Baguus ceritanya Worth to read banget deh kayaknya seri ini Sayang kualitas cetaknya nggak banget Untung belinya murmer Terjemahannya lumayan lah


    26. Baguus ceritanya Worth to read banget deh kayaknya seri ini Sayang kualitas cetaknya nggak banget Untung belinya murmer Terjemahannya lumayan lah


    27. Me ha gustado menos que la anterior, pero esta bien, a veces frases contemporaneas en los dialogos, fruto de la traduccion Y quedo a la espera de conocer la historia de Quint y resolver el misterio de los crimenes
