I have liked Gabriel all through the series and his story did not disappoint. Caroline is very likeable and it was great to catch up with all the others, although it would have been nice to see more of Grant and Kate.
A certain part of the Epilogue would be great to see on film and in slow motion :. A delightful, spicy read I started with book 4 of the series just because it was introduced at the end of a totally different novel. The first chapter captured my attention so I bought the book! I liked this but didn't love it. The characters just felt a bit cliched and predictable and while I liked the plot ridiculous but fun for the most part the plot twist right at the end was just annoying.

What a great series and what a great ending. Louise Allen is a new-to-me author and I'm going to check out her backlog and, of course, anything she publishes in the future. I was hesitant at first because of the beginning trope of a virgin offering her maidenhood to a rake. I've always thought that to be unrealistic but this time the offering was to "buy" back an unentailed estate her father had lost gambling which belonged to her younger brother.
So I stayed with the story because of her loyalty What a great series and what a great ending. So I stayed with the story because of her loyalty and protection of the youngest son. There is a lot of drama: a stint for Gabriel as a hermit at her father's hermitage, an escape for Caroline to avoid being forced to marry a sadistic crony of her father, an elopement of sorts to keep Caroline safe from said father, and an attempt by the father to have Gabriel investigated for murdering his own father.
Usually that much drama would have me rolling my eyes and yet the author wrote it convincingly. The relationship between Gabriel and Caroline developed realistically and lovingly. I will re-read this book and its predecessors. Allen keeps the story moving with give her characters the happy ending readers will feel they deserve. Quite a lovely, short romance with which to wile away an evening" RT Book Reviews. Miniseries: Lords of Disgrace Lady Caroline is a pure delight to read.
Her strength of character beguiles her hero and the reader alike. Gabriel doe "Allen concludes her Lords of Disgrace series with a tale filled with poignancy, passion, and a plot filled with many problems, each arising when another is solved. Gabriel doesn't stand a chance even if he thinks he does. His past makes it impossible to ignore her need for help.
His past might also destroy all hope of a future together.
Their story keeps you turning the pages. Jun 02, Harlequin Historical added it Shelves: harlequin. Miniseries: Lords of Disgrace I really enjoyed this one.
Would you have been as brave as Caroline was when she made her offer to Gabriel? I know it was to save her brother's inheritance but it would take a lot of guts to show up the way she did. That made me want to know her better and I loved doing just that. The two are perfect for each other and I wish "the end" never came because I want to continue to be entertained by not just Gabriel but all the Lords of Disgrace.
Aug 18, Mary Craven rated it it was amazing. The only reason I did not read this sooner is that I had to find a copy of The Many Sins of Cris de Feaux which is book three in the series before I could read book four. An excellent story in it's own right, loved the Welsh monk! I love that these wild lords only need to meet the right woman to bring out the good in them - it was always there - they just did not want anyone to know it.
Dec 28, Ruth rated it liked it Shelves: , family-doesn-t-end-with-blood , historical-romance , regency , historically-inaccurate-disrobing , romance , harlequin-historical. I read this book in the series first, just because I love romances where they are married at the beginning. That is NOT what happens here, so if you're looking for that trope, look elsewhere. However, I did enjoy the story enough where I'll read the rest of the books in the series, but not enough where I'm going to put everything else down and stop sleeping to read them.
