    1. First read Oct 2007, Re read August 2012I finished reading this book in 1 day This is Lucian s story The fallen twin who just never quite measures up to his brother A spy who hosts orgies in his underground grotto to gain useful information for national security A man who is the verge of personal collapse He has seen, experienced, and performed dispicable acts of humanity and is completely disenfranchised with everyone and everything He is alone Enter Alice Montague She is his opposite A naive, [...]

    2. Great book, though the first half is so much better than the second Love Lucien Here s my favorite quote You don t know, he said in a low, almost hostile voice He shook his head I don t even know what I m doing with you You re not like anyone else who s in my life He stopped abruptly Did you ever drink too much wine, Alice He held up the glass in his hand and waggled it idly, making the ruby contents swirl I m not one to overindulge No, you wouldn t be, he said wryly Allow me to explain, then, t [...]

    3. Lord of Fire was a fabulous book that has a little bit of everything heart pounding action and suspense, spy intrigue, history, and best of all, swoon worthy romance Galen Foley s writing style contains a richness of detail that vividly brings to life the world she has created, making me feel like I had actually been transported to another time and place It is apparent to me through reading her books and looking at her website that Ms Foley is meticulous with her historical research, and it defi [...]

    4. I got lulled into security by reading four romances in a row where the heroes were likeable, treating heroine and others around them with respect, and not in need of reform.But that s all right.Things are back to normal with Gaelen Foley s Lord of Fire What an apt name for the novel because that is precisely what I want to do to the hero stick him into the fire and have some barbeque while he roasts.OK, let s get down to this hypothetical You are a young woman and this is your experience with a [...]

    5. An emotional 4.5 stars.I put off reading this one in the series because I did not like the sound of the hero, Lucien Knight, at all And as I began reading the story with some trepidation I found my fears largely justified He was a pretty horrible person Whatever the excuses or explanations, he was a massive man whore, one who thought nothing of indulging any selfish desire he had or, just as disappointingly, thought nothing of using sex as a means to an end That end might have been vaguely linke [...]

    8. He de decir, que lo termin hace unos d as, pero llevo otros tantos sin conectarme desde el PC De ah , que mi opini n sobre este libro sea tarde, justa y muy poco explicativa.A mi los dos personajes me han gustado en su base, sobre todo l, que demuestra mucha profundidad de sentimientos, m s de los que demuestra Ella, en cambio, ha habido veces que me ha chirriado un poco los dientes, pero ha sabido compensarlo muy bien, ya que siempre, siempre ha apoyado a Lucien Donde se demuestra que una perso [...]

    9. I enjoyed this addition to the series and thought it a good read Although it is classed as a Historical Romance it has quite a few elements of a Spy Thriller novel which I really enjoyed Lucien is a bit of a dark character but in his job he has to have secrets and pretend to be many different things people Deep down he is a bit of a tortured sole who believes that he is not loved or wanted by anyone, even his family He puts on a stoic exterior and even tries to convince himself that it is not af [...]

    10. I ve just finished it I m not sure how I m feeling about this book.Because in the first half of it, I could enjoy and forgot some senseless developments But last quarter part was almost unbearable for me.There are so many things in the story that I can t accept First of all, the hero forced the heroine Alice make a choice out of a child who was ill at that time It s an unacceptable thing Anyway, in a week, our strong, infamous, strong hero fell in love with the heroine and proposed her Of course [...]

    11. This novel started and ended well, but it felt like a drudge in middle Lucien, a spy, is a nuanced, fleshed out, compelling hero I had a bit of a crush on him, to be honest despite his dastardly deeds in the beginning of the novel _ _ Alice is a mama bear to her nephew but also a sheltered young miss She didn t feel like a match to Lucien, and that was my problem for much of the novel There was a very touching scene towards the end view spoiler when Lucien comes to ask her help to draw a likenes [...]

    12. I was on the sofa ALL DAY reading this book What a slug but, hey, it snowed last night and I pretended the roads were bad and I was stranded.I couldn t put it down Lucien and Alice were such a great pair They were so loving towards each other it made me smile He was a bit of a bad boy with a real softness to him, as contradictory as that sounds He definitely needed a hug No, alot of hugs Which I would have gladly provided Alot Of hugs, that is.

    13. This book had me exercising eye rolls I think I actually strained an eye muscle if such a thing exists.The heroine is sooo incredible stupid that I was wishing she d trip, fall down the stairs and die so I could start reading a new book.Imagine you re a young virgin with high moral standards You end up smack in the middle of an orgy, get forcefully dragged off by an unknown man and felt up by him, perhaps even thinking you ll get raped, threatened with a gun, emotionally blackmailed with a child [...]

    14. I give this book 2 1 2 stars because I hate the heroine, Alice She is a priggish goody shoes Her stupidity nearly got the H, Lucien killed When heroine nearly gets the hero killed because of her stupidity, I get pissed off and turned off to her Endangering the H by the h really bugs me I loved the H though, I defy anyone who likes this series as a whole, not love LK However, his single flaw is his objectionable taste in women the h, Alice Some romance readers maybe upset that LK forced Alice to [...]

    16. It could have been a good story if the heroine had been smarter with her actions.I disliked the heroine Alice s actions Lucien was a highly skilled spy He told her to stay away from certain things, but she didn t and as a result, she caused problems, putting him in danger, herself in danger and causing a spy to get away Later in the story Alice s sister in law didn t do what she had been told to do, and as a result she was taken hostage This story used women s stupid actions to cause the conflic [...]

It s now 3 40am I stayed up to reacquaint myself with this book which I remember with loving memories I read it than 10 years ago, forgot all about the names of the book, the writer and lead characters But I remember the plots and oh the characters I have been on some kind of a hunt for this book for about a year, reading any books which have similar plots hoping to find this book again ReadingThe Duke led me finally toLord of Fire While I disliked The Duke, I am so happy that it helped me reun [...]

    19. 3 3.5 StarsI ve been avoiding writing a review for this, so I ve decided that I m not going to write a whole long one I just want to say that I absolutely love, LOVED The Duke and still haven t found the words to express my feelings for that amazing book But this second instalment of the Knight Miscellany series took me what felt like forever to finish though it was only 11 days I don t know what happened since quite a lot of you seem to have loved it For some reason, which I still haven t been [...]

    20. This books starts off highly charged with Lucien holding court over a party that is basically a BDSM and orgy scene I did say these books were not for the faint of heart didn t I Lucien and Alice s first scene together made my toes curl and well, basically Oh Nelly is all I have to say about that Lucien is that delicious combo of dangerously dark and little boy vulnerable Alice is the consummate good girl Lucien calls her Goody Two Shoes until she gets around Lucien, then she finds herself behav [...]

    21. So this book took me forever to read FOREVER Part of that was because I went through a huge reading slump for the majority of last year I just couldn t sit down and allow myself to indulge in reading long enough to make it feel worth it This book at on my nightstand getting dusty until finally I resumed in the last couple of week It wasn t the books fault This book didn t quite grab me the way its predecessor did, but again, that could have been my fault and not the book s Overall, the story was [...]

    22. In one way so naive and predictable, bad as well, on the other, not so any but only with glimpses I don t like these transformed in one week rakes, even if she walks on water Lucien Knight was really a bad motherfucker so I didn t want to read about his emotional breakdown after 12 hours Is this me being too insensible, aren t men supposed to be like this, little hard little soft God, that freaking Judith McNaught just ruined me immeasurably And as always, I don t like chasing, suspenseful stori [...]

    24. I adored Lucien This is an insta love romance, which isn t my favorite, but was well written I enjoyed the spy revenge plot I didn t expect to enjoy it after reading a few reviews, but was pleasantly surprised.

    25. Gripping right from the start with a superb plot The hero is a tortured, charismatic, magnetic bastard, who, in his service to the Crown, has totally lost himself and any sense of morals or humanity The heroine is a sad, lonely woman, treated with spite by her brother s widow, upon whom she is reliant, who spends her days and her love on her treasured nephew, her only living relative This story is superior to the first, The Duke, I think, although both are extremely well written and equally dark [...]

    26. To sum this up concisely too much chest heaving, not enough character focus I tried reading it, but got fed up with Alice s innocence and purity by first third of this book In addition, I found it extremely unrealistic that Alice s view on Lucien changed so quickly from the scene where he forces her to make a decision between her or her sister in law staying and the next few scenes Overall, just kind of terribly cheesy and dreadfully boring.

    28. 2.5 stars I was going to rate it 3 because I liked the beginning so much, but overall it was just so bad Such a pity because I really liked her writing, but the story was awful.Let me start by saying how amazing the start of the book was I was like wow this is good This is going to be awesome I actually found myself in love with Damien at first haha, but Lucien was dark and rakish and he intrigued me Then we shift to Alice and I adored her I couldn t wait for her to change Lucien s bad boy ways [...]

    29. He had been blind to how she she had taken control of their relationship over the past few days their whole liaison had been his whim, for his own pleasure, but now the seducer had been categorically seduced Did she enjoy having him on his knees he wondered, taking a rather bitter drink of his brandy Emotionally, he was in her hands now, and it scared the hell out of him.Lucien Knight is a hardened spy for England, who, despite his cunning reputation, is a bout of insecurities and is basically a [...]

    30. Wow This is my first Gaelen Goley novel and I m impressed I started out with the second novel in the series, but each story is a stand alone, even though they all flow together with connecting characters I ll go back and read one as soon as I read the third, which is Damien s story Lucien is my favorite of the two, but the I read, the I wanted to know of Damien I look forward to this series This is a story of loneliness, love and revenge Each character plays a key point in this story and even [...]
