    1. Great Book Great Series Highly recommend them all audible review Wow this story was probably my favorite of the entire series, and they are all very good I really enjoyed the heroine She was smart, spunky, daring, beautiful, and just a joy I also really enjoyed the hero He was just great I loved that his character was handsome, smart, and a bit flawed with his anxiety issues The chemistry between these two was great Genuine, real and very hot and steamy Yes there are some very well written hot a [...]


    2. This is a tough review to write because it has to go negative and I dislike writing negative reviews I try to be constructive but that s tough with this one.The nuts and bolts of the writing on display here was alright But the story, the characterization and perhaps as a consequence of the latter the romance were all seriously lacking If historical romance were a swimming pool this author is well and truly in the shallow end with this book.It suffers with CILD contemporary in long dresses syndro [...]



    3. My Favorite One I ve loved all the Wicked Deceptions book, and this is by far my favorite Quint believes himself broken, but as we know today PTSD is not untreatable And Sophie is by far an unconventional heroine While Quint isn t the reformed rogue or the manly man that Nick and Simon, he is definitely my favorite hero of this series However, I have high hopes for the Scotsman MacLean and hope he gets a book soon


    4. This was a good ending to the trilogy, but wish we could have had a epi as I would have liked to have known how Quint was doing long term I do hope that JS is going to write McLean a story, as he has been built to be such an intriguing character in the book PS I checked her website and she wrote a epi for the entire series, but it got cut, but is posted on her website under extras It was pretty sweet and I thank her for putting it up.



    5. I ve given this a C at AAR.This is the final book in Ms Shupe s Wicked Deceptions trilogy in which the stories are linked by the three male protagonists, who are long term friends I enjoyed the first book The Courtesan Duchess and felt Ms Shupe was an author to watch She writes well, her characters are strongly drawn and she can certainly turn up the heat when called for.Yet I was a little reluctant to pick up this book, despite having enjoyed meeting its hero, Damien Beecham, Viscount Quint, in [...]


    6. I have really enjoyed this series, and was really looking forward to the third book because of the unusual, quirky and uselessly cute hero Joanna Shupe is a talented new historical romance author.However, once I read the blurb I knew this wouldn t be my favourite in the series The woman undercover in men s clothes trope is far and away my least favourite in the genre.One of the biggest problems with this theme is that I can barely buy a regular woman of the Georgian era dressing as a man and goi [...]


    7. Is it amazing, when you stumble into an exqisite writer you didn t know you ll love and they ve already published a bunch of books The Lady Helloin has opened my eyes to Joanna Shupe and I m a convert This was a bold, steamy, lovely, emotional regency escape for me, I highly recommed it and I m getting the rest of her books asap.


    8. If you have been reading the first two novels in Ms Joanna Shupe s wickedly entertaining Wicked Deceptions series, then you have been just as anxious as myself in learning of Lady Sophia Barnes latest adventures or should I say misadventures After all lady Sophia has emerged as one of the most rebellious rabble rousers for justice Not that the ton knew what she was up to as she donned the persona of Sir Stephen while roaming London s sordid underbelly of gaming hell s and brothels.From the very [...]


    9. Lady Sophia Barnes is a head strong and independent who wants to live her life her way In the times when woman don t have many choices She has to work with her limitations Lady Sophia is smart and confident who wants to help ladies who can t get help Damien Beecham, Viscount Quint is struggling with some of his own issues He wants to lock himself up in his private world Lady Sophia is a force in herself, she invades Damien s household and tries to help him It is a sweet and heartfelt story I lov [...]


    10. First published on book blog WillReadforFeels I received this book for free from Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.When you come to the last book of any series, even if it s just a trilogy or a quartet, you ve followed from the first book onward, the experience is always a little bittersweet On one hand, you are happy that you re getting closure ideally an HEA for the heroes and a suitable form of punishment [...]



    11. The Courtesan Duchess didn t work for me and while I loved the heroine in The Harlot Countess, I loathed the hero So I was than a little skeptical about The Lady Hellion But I m happy to say that my worries proved unfounded because this book gave me everything I could ve wanted in an HR and I got a kickass heroine, a darling hero, a made for each other couple who were very much a team, mind blowing love scenes, excellent prose, there was even a puppy I really loved Sophie, mainly because she w [...]


    12. Originally Reviewed For Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and FantasyIt s a dark time in Joanna Shupe s latest book The Lady Hellion, book three in her Wicked Deception Series Life may be cushy for the rich and famous, aka the ton, but the poor are barely getting by And life fore women is even worse Their choices are very limited with prostitution being one of the few career choices left to them and while the job is not ideal, some really do have it worse than others In the Lady Hellion we get to wa [...]


    13. After hitting it off with The Courtesan Duchess and The Harlot Countess, I regret to say The Lady Hellion is a huge miss.Repeat after me It s not stubbornness It s stupidity.Repeat after me Stubbornness is not an excuse for stupidity.Repeat after me Stubbornness is not a substitute for stupidity.I am a fan of Joann Shupe I immensely enjoyed the first two books in The Wicked Deceptions series, but I really, really, really, really don t like The Lady Hellion I don t hate it, per say But I have nev [...]


    14. Copy graciously provided by Kensington Books through Net Galley I received it April 9th and DEVOURED it 5 Ardent, Desperate, Swoony STARS If you love Historical Romances, this will not be a disappointment Loved this journey A strong Heroine and vulnerable Hero 3 I highly recommend reading the first 2 stories The books could be considered stand alone s, however, the characters feature through all the stories And they are just as intense, and intriguing, which makes this series all that enjoyable [...]


    15. She was clearly born to be a man.Wonder why she dumped him three years ago.Parading around London as a man was bound to get her into trouble one day Really, Quint Three weeks later Ha, data gets him hot Poor man We know now about PTSD, but there is still no set cure I wonder what his father suffered from Wow, he was really smart as a child Good for you, Nick and Simon.That bastard Lord Robert I hope Quint is her father s choice He s never petted a dog Sad Police corruption is not a recent pheno [...]


    16. some where between 3.25 3.5 stars can t make up my mind.expectations for new authors are very different from established ones and I think this author shows potentialere were some issues with the writing, some of the plot points were a little too unbelievable and the heroine makes some tstl choices and yet it was still an enjoyable read.I m interested in seeing how her future books will turn out and will definitely try her again


    17. This is the third book in the series and I liked it as much as the first two Well written with a genius hero who has issues of his own while worrying about the heroine and her escapades No plot spoilers from me, but I think you ll enjoy it I ll definitely read from this author.




    18. Sometimes, it s not about the book but about me I think I ve changed There re some books I could ve enjoyed if I ve read them some other time in the past but now I hardly ever find romances so interesting any Maybe I ll finish a few series I ve started and that s all I prefer fantasy in general and sometimes thrillers for a change.I think the previous two books of Wicked Deceptions were intriguing than this one From the preview, in The Harlott Countess, I taught The Lady Hellion is going to b [...]


    19. I know this copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review The Lady Hellion is the 3rd novel in the Wicked Deceptions series and yes, I ve read the other two also and I always enjoyed them but this one was different The lead was different and the story next to the romance part of course Sophie is a tall woman who knows how to hide her female features when she changes into the role of Lord Stephan She only does so to gather information about the latest murders in London the abduction and br [...]


    20. Check out reviews at Little Miss Bookmark Sophie is unlike other women of society she doesn t care about getting married her father brings it up every year and she keeps dodging that bullet , she doesn t really care about what others think and she dresses as a man to help solve mysteries surrounding local brothels As if her life isn t crazy enough, fate has brought an old flame back into the picture Sophia needs Damien s help, help he isn t willing to give Actually, he isn t willing to do anyth [...]


    21. I ve read all of the books in this series and I d be hard pressed to pick a favorite, but it just might be this one As usual, Joanna Shupe does an excellent job taking you back to Victorian England I m never jarred out of the story by things that are too modern or too unbelievable However, it s still a romance novel, so there is plenty of fanciful love and adventure Quint was always an adorable addition to the other books As a supporting character, he was a voice of reason, a major source of sup [...]


    22. Originally given 3.5 hearts at Rookie Romance.And so we come to the third and final I think book in the Wicked Deceptions It s been a blast reading these stories and I ve come to really enjoy this author s writing through this series.Our heroine in this book is Lady Sophia Barnes Sophie s a very unconventional woman for this time period She s a spinster and has no intentions of marrying, instead she devotes her time to conducting investigations for the women in London who can find help nowhere e [...]


    23. 4 stars 3 flames.Joanna Shupe is a talented new historical romance author, and I have really enjoyed this series of steamy romances set in the Georgian era of British history This book follows Lady Sophia and Viscount Quint, who we met in The Courtesan Duchess and The Harlot Countess Lady Sophia, at age 27, considers herself an unmarriageable spinster after she was duped by a rake during her first debut Feeling oppressed by the limitations on women in society, Sophie decides to dress as a man in [...]


    24. Because I do not see your weaknesses as embarrassing I see them as human You re afraid, Damien And I understand that, probably better than you realize I ve let fear and shame rule my life for so long, and you ve set me free from all that Let me help you this time I ll post a saucier extract at the end of this review but I WILL TRY AND FOCUS ON THE NON SEXY BITS of this book I liked how in tuned Sophie and Quint were with each other, they complement each other so well and bring out the best in ea [...]


    25. Lady Sophia Barnes is a woman to be admired She s brave, she s strong, she s stubborn, and she s generous She doesn t take no for an answer and poses as a man when she goes on a mission roaming London s underground.What she s doing is dangerous, but living for a cause, and being brave enough to fight for it is pretty much amazing She usually comes out of it unscathed, until she needed to use a gun First, she had to know how to shoot it Who else would be qualified to teach her discreetly but Lord [...]
