Still sick, and tired… And it’s past midnight here and I was suppose to post the review on the 1st. This is what happens when I’m sleep deprived for days, and I apologize for not posting earlier, but reading is helping me deal with the bad week I’m having. And because I want you all to find some amazing books to help you out dealing with your bad days, I bring you a review.
As many of you may know I love Virginia Heath books. And today’s book is one of hers!
“The Disgraceful Lord Gray” is the third book in the King’s Elite series, the first one being “The Mysterious Lord Millcroft” and the second being “The Uncompromising Lord Flint”. That been said this is a regency romance, published in 1st April 2019.
Happy Publication Day!
Thank you Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Virginia Heath for the eCopy of the book and for allowing me to be a part of this blog tour and give my honest review.
A spy on a mission…Until he meets this heiress!
Miss Theodora Cranford’s learned to keep her impetuous nature locked away. She won’t be deceived by another man who can’t see past her fortune. She wants an honourable, sensible sort – not a self-assured scoundrel like her new neighbour, Lord Gray. Although she’s sure there’s more to him than meets the eye… But after that first captivating kiss, she’s certainly left wanting more!
Virginia Heath lives on the outskirts of London with her understanding husband and two, less understanding, teenagers. After spending years teaching history, she decided to follow her dream of writing for Harlequin. Now she spends her days happily writing regency romances, creating heroes that she falls in love with and heroines who inspire her. When she isn’t doing that, Virginia likes to travel to far off places, shop for things that she doesn’t need or read romances written by other people.
Oh boy! Oh boy… So many things to say and I don’t like reviews with spoilers, so I will just let my enthusiasm talk for how good this is. Let’s start with the fact that if you love historical romances and don’t know Virginia Heath then I don’t know what you have been doing until now. This series can be read as a standalone, although I recommend you read all the books in order so you can experience the full experience of this series and learn more about the characters and the King’s Elite.
In this book we follow Lord Gray and Miss Theadora Cranford, and oh boy… What a fun adventure their story was. Lord Gray is part of a group of spies, a disgraced aristocrat on a mission that will take him on an excited and unexpected journey. He’s handsome, intelligent, charming, sweetheart and determined. Then there is Thea, a young woman that is trying to not get many attention, so she stays guarded, although once they met sparks fly. I won’t say how they met, but it was funny and awesome.
Like I said before, I won’t give any spoilers, so no specifics of the plot, but… The book is full of romance, mystery, crime, humor and excitement, and that’s very characteristic of Virginia Heath’s books, which I love.
The fun thing about this storyline is the unexpected moments, that’s what makes me curious, because I want to know more about the characters and what they are going to do when the plans don’t go as they thought and prepared. And those unexpected moments sometimes bring or are provoked by funny scenes.
With twists and turns, sense of humor, characters that make us fall in love for them, a cute dog, spies and mystery… What more could we ask for? Overall, I loved this story, I was at the edge of my seat and couldn’t stop reading until I figured out everything. So, of course I recommend this book, this series.
