This blog was created by Denise in September 2008 to blog about writing, book reviews, and technology. Slowly, but surely this blog expanded to what it has become now, a central for book reviews of all kinds interviews, contests, and of course promotional venue for authors, etc

The third book in the Lost Lords series by Putney, this historical romance is sure to delight! With an intoxicating romance with entrancing characters, those who love historical romance will love this book. Although it’s a series, I felt that I could read the book on its own. I always tell those who want to read books from the beginning, if it’s a series, go ahead and read the first and work your way through. My advice? Read the series from start to finish, you will not be disappointed. I’m reading them as we speak and enjoying all these characters. Our heroine is Lady Kiri Lawford. She is of mixed Indian blood. Although her father was a Duke and she is a great heiress, polite society only sees her and her Indian blood. When Lady Kiri  flees from hurtful words about her heritage to return home, she is captured by smugglers. This is how she meets the handsome and is aided by Damian Mackenzie. Damian is a rich businessman, but has his own problems such as being a bastard child. So they share lots in common from what polite society thinks of them. Together they will find a mutual attraction and combine resources to escape the smugglers. Sound exciting right? Go pick it up and read it!


NoWhere Near Respectable

Mary Jo Putney


Genre: Historical Romance

Book Blurb:

Mary Jo Putney’s riveting Lost Lords series unleashes a high stakes royal plot–which may prove easier for Damian Mackenzie to handle than his own unruly desire. . .

He’s a bastard and a gambler and society’s favorite reprobate. But to Lady Kiri Lawford he’s a hero–braver than the smugglers he rescues her from, more honorable than any lord she’s ever met, and far more attractive than any man has a right to be. How can she not fall in love. . .?

But Damian Mackenzie has secrets that leave no room in his life for courting high-born young ladies–especially not the sister of one of his oldest friends. Yet when Kiri’s quick thinking reveals a deadly threat to England’s crown, Damian learns that she is nowhere near as prim and respectable as he first assumed. . .and the lady is far more alluring than any man can resist. . .
