Other Women Which Jerked Me women which jerked me of the story Now I would probably be interested in reading their stories especially the fire starter but these two scenarios distracted me from Evie and Gray s romanceIn the end I was torn between a very entrancing fun hero and a peevish unlikeable heroine I wish Evie had been a different person for I would have liked the story better As it was these two just didn t connect for me That doesn t mean I m giving up on this series No this is just a case of heroine phobia I will of course be picking up the next book in the seriesKaysBlog A Regency story uite a bit of story with a contemporary slant The sex scenes are sensual with words like penis used with manhood and the f word used several times This is not a critiue but an observationThe heroine is a contemporary thinker she dresses like a man and runs a newspaper She has good reasons why she doesn t trust men easily The story is well paced The dialogue is contemporary The hero is a scoundrel but not a true bad boy or an alpha male It s refreshing to meet an interesting but nearly normal rich male in a romance novelThe H and h do not go to balls or parties They do not waltz together He does not send her flowers or get down on his knees to propose The romance is in the relationship that develops as they work together on the newspaper again a contemorary view of the Regency world.

that runs The List but determined to stop the paper Ben heads to the printing office to confront the publisher When he discovers that it s his first love Evangeline Evie Ramsey under the guise of a man his old feelings for her emerge and make things complicated Ben eventually tries to sway Evie to stop her from spreading the gossip and tarnishing his reputation This is the main angst between the characters It also stems from their past history of being each other s first loves Ben had asked Evie at one time to take his hand in marriage but she turns him down which is part of the discontent between the two All other character cameos are a wonderful addition to the story between the hero and heroine To tell One Human Minute you who pops in would be a spoiler just know that there is plenty of intrigue and mystery to keepou interested in the storyline as ou venture through the reacuaintance of Ben and Evie The love scenes are hot and steamy without being over done Although each character claims to not have any feelings for the other ou can still feel and understand the connection they still have with each other For my experience I felt for the hero in this story He seemingly let Evie walk away long ago but never stopped carrying the torch for her and loves her still when he finally finds her again He felt something for her still and had sought escape from that inconvenient emotion for a third of his life Calf love never grown a great moo Wildflowers Of Alberta y mess of need and want Impossible Insupportable Lord Gray s List was an enjoyable read for this reviewer s first historical novel I recommendou read it too Reviewed by Sarah LBook provided by publisherReview originally posted at Romancing the BookLord Gray s List is the first book in Maggie Robinson s latest series The London List While certainly not uniue the plot sounded very intriguing with the heroine Evie Ramsey masuerading as a man and disparaging the reputation of her former beau Lord Gray by publishing his transgressions each week in her newspaper Eve 15 star Beauty is in the eye of the beholder I believe in that very much But I struggled here to see beauty of any kind in Evangeline the prickly heroine To be blunt she s a complete bitch And for no other reason except her morally superior belief that she s suffered some imaginary horror and needs to take it out on everyone else men in particular This did absolutely nothing for me A man slut hero who bends over backwards to get the heroine s approval endlessly and reform his rakish ways while she turns her nose up in the air continuously The whole time I m wondering what an Adonis sex crazed intimidating creature like Ben sees in a rail thin big nosed hairy chinned shrewish plain spinster masuerading as a man who does nothing but ridicule and snarl at him every chance she gets That s an ol bucket full of horse pucky if I ever saw it And FYI none of the physical "Traits I Just Described Is An Exaggeration "I just described is an exaggeration my part Oh it s all very real down to the very chin hair she seems so proud of Really didn t see what he found so attractive or endearing about her and probably the most far fetched thing in this entire story I mean not only is she not very attractive but her attitude is ugly too on top of that I m not exactly sure what Robinson was trying to accomplish with a heroine like this Evie was insufferable and a complete narcissist to boot The most hateful miserable self righteous selfish judgmental character I ve had the displeasure of reading about Someone who loves to pass judgement on others because of their vices while they themselves make money off other people s suffering exploits does not give them room to be judge jury and executioner Get off the damn throne dear That is not a noble crusade of any kind so please spare me I had trouble understanding why this woman went to such lengths to skewer Ben through her newspaper The London List for 2 ears when she was the one who coldly rejected him when they were oung and in love I mean I was just waiting for someone to point this out to her Ben in particular Her motivations made no sense and poorly justified And we are never given much insight or guilt for that matter on the heroine s part for her rejection of Ben 10 The Bride Of Lammermoor years prior when he proposed to her I had to sit through reading the heroine degrade and insult the hero at e 45Book source ARC My review is voluntary and honestThe London List is the bane of Lord Benton Gray s existence Every Tuesday it has featured his debaucherous shenanigans and he s had enough Enough I tellou He stomps down to the paper to give the editor a good dressing down only to find out his old love is the one running the place Wut How in the name of all the sexy mistresses on Jane Street is this Saved her and her ailing father from destitution But the paper has given Evie than financial relief As its publisher she lives as a man dressed in masculine garb free to pursue and report whatever she likes especially the latest disgraces besmirching Lord Benton Gray It’s only fair she hang his dirty laundry given that it. 25

BUT REFERENCES TO REGENCY PERIODI WAS RATHER DISAPPOINTED INreferences to Regency periodI was rather disappointed in book I never felt engaged with the characters or the story Benton was just too much of a dissolute rake to get behind and there really wasn t enough to go on with Evie to understand or like her There was a lot of sex but it was dull and uninspiring I also felt the story was lacking and somewhat unbelievable It seemed strange that the author picked the Regency period to set this in as it might have been believable to have Evie running a newspaper in the late Victorian or Edwardian period I also have a pet peeve and hate when authors put "too much time in these second chance love stories A decade "much time in these second chance love stories A decade their first affair and their second meeting up just seems too much especially given that it puts Evie at the age of 32 by the time this story comes around Truthfully I ended up almost skimming the whole book because I just could not become engaged in the story so either 25 stars is too generous or maybe I didn t give it better attention It s a shame because I absolutely loved another book by this author Lord Gray or Ben to his friends is sick of being uoted on London s popular newspaper The London List every Tuesday Each week the antics of Lord G are printed for all to read From the women he beds to the clubs he visits Yes he is a rake and he likes women but he doesn t need everyone to know everything about him and he is determined to put a stop to it But then he discovers the Mr Ramsey in charge of the paper is actually Evangeline Ramsey better known as Evie dressed as a man and fooling everyoneEvie s father won the London List in a card game and is now ailing and can t care for himself She finds it much easier to conduct business as a man and has shorn off her long locks and now wears men s clothing The money brought in helps he This was an enjoyable read but it was only pretending to be a historical romance The vocabulary and attitudes of the characters are uite contemporary Evie is a tabloid journalistsocial justice crusader She actually uses the term social justice to describe her actions Significant portions of the book are dedicated to her rescuing people from the evils of the time She rescues two different women from abusive situations One way Ben signals that he has Lord Benton Gray has had it with the weekly gossip rag The London List He is always the front page fodder and everyone including his own mother eagerly awaits each new issue Deciding to end this once and for all he goes and confronts the owner a Mr Ramsey But who should this Mr Ramsey turn out to be but the one woman he proposed to ears agoEvangeline Ramsey Evie is running the paper to help pay her ailing fathers medical bills and dressing as a man has proved to be most advantageous as people are willing to speak to a man over a woman and take her seriously Seeing the man she made a foolish mistake with and ruined her future as a result stems her anger and frustration but the final straw is when Ben goes behind her back and buys the paper from her father Spar Lord Gray s List rating 4 out of 5 starsRelease date October 30 2012 Lord Gray s List is the first in Robinson s new series The London List but can be read as a stand alone novel How are the sex scenesVery very good Descriptive and imaginative but not over the top How are the story linesEnjoyable They read very detailed and historical but keep ou interested despite the big words this was my first historicalWould The Booke Of Common Praier Noted you read it againYes I liked the hero and want to revisit himBack of the bookFrom duchesses to chamber maids everybody s reading it Each Tuesday The London List appears filled with gossip and scandal offering job postings and matches for the lovelorn and most enticing of all telling the tales and selling the wares a modest publication wouldn t touchThe creation of Evangeline Ramsey The London List saved her and her ailing father from destitution But the paper has given Evie than financial relief As its publisher she lives as a man dressed in masculine garb free to pursue and report whatever she likes especially the latest disgraces besmirching Lord Benton Gray It s only fair that she hang his dirty laundry given that it was hisouthful ardor that put her off marriage for goodLord Gray Ben isn t about to stand by while all of London laughs at his peccadilloes week after week But once he discovers that the publisher is none other than pretty Evie Ramsey with her curls lopped short his worries turn to desires and not a one of them fit to print ReviewIt s 1820 in London England Hero Ben Baron Benton Gray and heroine Evie Evangeline Ramsey have chemistry and history Yet it never gets too far because their relationship iscomplicated Complicated by Evie than by Ben Evie feels like Ben has changed too much over the ears into a person she no longer knows or.
