Yay she s back Julie Anne Long took a break from historical romances after finishing up her Pennyroyal Green series in 2015 and ventured into contemporary romance relatively successfully But I prefer HRs and have always been fond of the way JAL writes romance You can feel the chemistry between H and h and the attraction and relationship build rather slowly the way I like itThis is the start to a new HR series and began as a 5 star book for me How can you not love a story that begins with the development of friendship between a young widow and her late husband s mistress Especially when written cleverly by LongDelilah Swanpoole Countess of Derring hadn t exactly loved her husband but she had been living what she thought was a safe comfortable life Then he up and dies leaving her penniless and with nothing but a derelict old building by the docks As she goes to check on that inheritance she accidentally meets up with Angeliue Breedlove who she learns was her husband s mistress and whom he has also left in financial straits What to do when they discover themselves simpatico but go into business together and convert that old building into a boardinghouse to be named The Grand Palace on the ThamesThe budding friendship is great I may have been even fonder of the female bonding in this book than of the romance between H and h At first acuaintance at the pub next door to Delilah s inheritance they drink glasses of sherry toasting the memory of dear dull dead Derring Long s clever descriptive turns of phrase show up often For example when Delilah and Angeliue are just beginning to get to know each other Mrs Breedlove tipped her head and studied Delilah as if she were a cunning little jewel box and she d just noticed she had a hidden compartmentI thoroughly enjoyed the relationships of Delilah Angeliue and Delilah s amusingly incompetent maid Dot as they prepare the building to serve as a boardinghouse Delilah is somewhat naive and innocent having lived a sheltered life first with her family and then married to an earl and Angeliue worldly wise and sophisticated But Delilah notes that Angeliue might be sophisticated and clever and jaded butacuired her polish the way gems in a tumbler do Yes she s been knocked around a bit by lifeBoth women have reached the conclusion that they would be much better off on their own with nary a man in their lives The late Earl of Derring is revealed to be a sorry sort and a real dud as a husband and as a lover And Angeliue has had even disappointments from the various men in her life So they create a cozy comfortable place for themselves and for the many they hope guests who will pay to stay at The Grand Palace on the Thames It will be a boardinghouse with rules among them 1 four meals a week with all guests together to make sure everyone meets everyone else 2 no entertaining anyone of the opposite sex alone in one s rented room and 3 no swearing with a swear jar to enforce this rule Almost like a familyThe guests only trickle in unfortunately But among the few who sign on are two strange shy sisters a traveling salesman and our hero Captain Tristan Hardy Captain Hardy is there to investigate a smuggling ring which he suspects has a connection to this boardinghouse especially considering that the late Earl of Derring had been under suspicion Is Delilah continuing Derring s possible illegal activities But whether or not Tristan suspects Delilah of wrongdoing he can t help but be attracted to herAnd so it goes The romance is lovely but not the best JAL has ever done The mystery about the smuggling is not particularly compelling a few of the characters who come to stay at the Palace left me wondering why they had been included but the various personal relationships Delilah Angeliue Delilah Dot Delilah Tristan and Tristan and his cohort Massey and Long s writing skills were enough to convince me to round my 35 stars to 4

Title Lady Derring Takes a LoverSeries The Palace of Rogues 1Author Julie Anne LongRelease date February 26 2019Cliffhanger NoGenre historical romanceThis is my first Julie Anne Long book I know I know Where have I been Thanks to my girl Astrid once again I ve found another author to faithfully follow in the genre I think this is going to be the year I fully get back into historical romance because I have been enjoying an amazing run in the past couple of months with them Julie Anne Long has such a distinct style to her writing that sets her apart from other authors I was honestly one of the most refreshing discoveries I ve had in a long time because of it This first book in the Palace of Rogues series centers around Countess Delilah and Captain Tristan Hardy Delilah has just been widowed and discovers that her husband has been keeping some very important things from her But then it doesn t really surprise her because she s always been treated as if she s just a means to an end A commodity for other people to make use of rather than seen for the bright and brave woman she is First she was auctioned off to the highest bidder to save her family from ruin and then she was only useful to her husband to produce an heir Spending so long feeling invisible has made her somewhat bitter towards men and even though she s in a desperate situation she can t help but feel like a caged bird who has finally been given its freedom No one particularly not her late husband had ever valued her for wits Oh but she possessed themShe has debt collectors knocking at her door to repossess anything they can get their hands on Her meeting with his solicitor is already grim and then things sink comically worse when her husband s mistress barges in asking for her share of his estate To say she was having a bad day would be an understatement This is where you get the first taste of the heroine s strong character because not only does she not fall apart but she seeks out her husband s mistress and invites her to become her partner in a risky business venture Lady Derring is the proud new owner of a shabby property in the sketchy part of London the sole item she gains from her unsatisfactory marriage to a man fifteen years her senior It may be filthy and neglected but it s hers Previously an establishment of uestionable morality named the Palace of Rogues she envisions transforming it to a respectable boarding house called The Grand Palace on the Thames That in itself is pretty funny but they way Delilah always tells everyone Here at the Grand Palace on the Thames in such a ceremonious way always made me laugh She so seriously expected people to believe that the boarding house isn t in a crime ridden neighborhood by the docks but rather an elite place where anyone who is anyone wanted to stay The rules they concocted to make the place comfortable for the guests were also hilarious especially the swear jar and the rules forcing guests to eat and spend time together Captain Tristan is as taciturn and unsociable as they come so it was highly entertaining to see him attempting to converse with the uirky characters staying there Tristan is an unobtrusive character that sneaks up on you His droll dry humor is snarky but not in an in your face kind of way As a career military man he s very strictly regimented staunchly honorable and self possessed Then his playful side comes out by the beautiful Delilah and you see him blooming right before your very eyes She s able to loosen the tight control over himself that he s held so rigidly for his entire life He isn t the type to reveal what he s feeling so when she earns a tilted smile or a slip in his composure it s meaningful When he d devilishly tease her in that subtle sarcastic way of his I couldn t get enough I don t suppose you often lose at anything Captain Hardy Not since that one time lo these many years ago You and I are very alike I think Captain Hardy Ah Does your beard begin to darken at about five o clock too The romance is a slow burn build I m definitely a fan of that because the tension and chemistry hold a lot of heat when they re forced to simmer These two had a fantastic burn that built in intensity in a way that I wasn t expecting They re all about the teasing hot glances and daring comments that make the other just a little weak kneed Though it did take a while to surface you did see the attraction and her effect on him immediately And he s totally incapable of understanding the unfamiliar feelings he stirs because he s never had that type of reaction to a woman before She makes him feel out of control and way out of his comfort zone I loved all of the characters even Angeliue She and Delilah built an unlikely friendship and they were very much opposites in personality but they also felt a bond because of how they d been wronged by the men they loved The boardinghouse was their opportunity to stand on their own two feet and work for their independence so they d never have to be dependent on anyone ever again Delilah s lingering naivety and desire to see the world through a rose colored glasses was in direct contrast to Angeliue s cynical and distrustful nature Though she wasn t unkind she hadn t been as sheltered as her friend and she d experienced a world of heartache I m very excited to read her book after meeting her hero at the end of the storyThere was a little mystery involved which I thought was well done As the Captain works in secret to ferret out the criminal he s hunting he realizes that the end of his investigation could break sweet Delilah in ways he didn t intend I loved this one so much I only shaved a bit off my rating because it did take me a little while to engage in the beginning and get sucked in It was far from boring but it did feel a little slow and that s somewhat expected with the first in a series Also I would have liked to learn about his past because we only learned the bare minimum and I was expecting him to open up and reveal about himself Overall I loved Tristan and Delilah together and he even showed a romantic side in the end that I had no idea he had in him If you re looking for a new HR series to follow give this one a shot I ll definitely be reading the next installment as well as exploring her backlist as soon as I can Never had pleasure so owned him So fully consumed him Never had it so thoroughly relieved him if momentarily of the burden of being himself the man who held up the worldFOLLOW SMOKIN HOT BOOK BLOG ON
