Peek Inside Less than a Lady

Darcy Blake, Earl of Chase, is a solider, rogue, and a loyal King's man. Commanded to spy on the luscious actress Amelia Fox, Darcy must pretend to be her student for a court theatrical. He is certain he can school her in the art of seduction while discovering if she is a traitor. But to his shock, he finds Mrs. Fox teaching him an entirely different kind of lesson. As London's most popular actress, Amelia is famous at court, and she doesn't have a husband to tell her what do. Unfortunately, the king has ordered her to train the rakehell, Lord Chase to act for the court. Before long, the Earl is driving her wild with desire and awakening her heart to love. As an actress, society dictates she can never be more than Lord Chase's mistress, and Amelia has vowed never to be less than a lady. When Darcy learns the witty actress is indeed linked to a traitor, he'll have to decide if love or loyalty will rule the day

Rating 3.5/5
Set just after the return of the monarchy to England, with King Charles II returning to power but wary of the still active anti-monarchist Cromwellian supporters. This is definitely a different time period for a romance to be set in! With a highwayman, soldiers, treason, double crossi... ...more

Love Darcy. He cracks me up with his dressing as a lady bit. He is also loyal, honest and what he does for Amelia at the end will have you swoon. I wasn’t sure I would like his character at first due to him being at the king’s bidding but in the end I absol... ...more

Lord Chase, Darcy Blake, has messed with the wrong woman! The king is not happy about it so he must come up with a just punishment.

Amelia has been given the daunting task, and admittedly somewhat amusing task of teaching the Earl of Chase how to be a woman. Apparently the King is expecting Darcy to take part in a production for his own amusement – and that will require Darcy to know ho... ...more

Nothing feels right. Not since my best friend died and I fucked up the one promise he asked me to make. The past follows me everywhere, tangling me up like weeds, reminding me that my life is empty. So fucking empty.
