Four and a Half Stars

Nothing is as it used to be for the Black Dagger Brotherhood. After avoiding war with the Shadows, alliances have shifted and lines have been drawn. The slayers of the Lessening Society are stronger than ever, preying on human weakness to acquire more money, more weapons, more power. But as the Brotherhood readies for an all-out attack on them, one of their own fights a battle within himself…   For Rhage, the Brother with the biggest appetites, but also the biggest heart, life was supposed to be perfect–or at the very least, perfectly enjoyable. Mary, his beloved shellan, is by his side and his King and his brothers are thriving. But Rhage can’t understand–or control–the panic and insecurity that plague him…   And that terrifies him–as well as distances him from his mate. After suffering mortal injury in battle, Rhage must reassess his priorities–and the answer, when it comes to him, rocks his world…and Mary’s. But Mary is on a journey of her own, one that will either bring them closer together or cause a split that neither will recover from…

The Pleasures of Passion by Sabrina Jeffries

If you love Regency romance and you’re not already reading Sabrina Jeffries, I can’t imagine why not. Author of over 50 best-selling novels, Ms. Jeffries knows exactly what her audience want and she delivers it in spades. No historical inaccuracies here; she knows her time period inside out.

This is the fourth book in The Sinful Suitors series, and I have to confess I haven’t read the previous three, but it absolutely wasn’t necessary. This book stands perfectly on its own.
