    I think I would consider this of a mystery than a true romance There was a great story going on here but most of the book was centered around a murder investigation I loved the premise of the highwayman and Mark and Ally's characters but I wish the author would have based the novel on their relationship Otherwise it was a good read and kept you on the edge of your seat wondering who the killer was

    All I have to say is that if I ever get kidnapped I hope it would turn out something like this book

    The story was itself was whimsical and the level of intensity was flat up until the end I would call this CPD or Can't put down You can easily read it and leave it then come back Although the story had a great amount of mystery and puzzle solving and murders the writing just didn't really bring it to life The Protagonist the Heroine was a lot of fun interaction as they bicker but I thought the Author got lazy in the love scenes the description didn't really make the read understand what the lovers where thinking It felt like a uick pass over I know it can get tedious when a couple has sex constantly but in this case they didn't In which case the first time they came together should have felt profound which is why I rated at 3 stars It also felt as if the Author was playing it to save with the main characters such as all spoiler her guardians and godparents Too much goodness which could have been counter balances with another set of characters with problems Shall I read the previous two? Mmm not sure

    I love Heather Graham and this was my first time trying out Shannon Drake It was not a bad read but I do prefer the Graham novels better perhaps due to being a different genre I did enjoy the characters that were added to this book such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and ueen Victoria Even though this was a fictional book it was nice to see that the author actually knew enough about the location and the time to be able to incorporate actual people into the story line

    In this series each book was better than the last Unfortunately the entire series focuses on something I've never been interested in Mystery I hate mystery novels I always have I enjoyed how independent each woman was and how their men had to learn to adjust Mr Mark had to learn that you shouldn't marry someone just to control them That's messed up

    Too obviously derivative of Sleeping Beauty a blond beautiful secretly princess living in the forest in a charming cottage with three aunts Did not interest me but I finished it hoping it'd get better Blah

    Unnecessary editing errors for example how did Lord Wittburg end up in Lord Farrow's carriage p 251

    Beguiled is how Lady Ally and Lord Mark affianced in childhood respond to each other and the reader responds to the sparkling dialogue and fast action Author Shannon Drake twists a historical romance into a royal espionage thriller a complex multi layer whodunit to the very last pages a galloping carriage kidnap finale Both her protagonists have secret lives Mark uses disguises outward flighty gambler about town and secret daring highwayman to help Scotland Yard and ueen Victoria solve murders and uphold the monarchy Ally apparently an orphan stubbornly refuses to believe she endangers herself and her loved ones who have hidden her royal heritage by personally delivering anonymous opinions to the newspaper about the murders and for the monarchy Ally carries her independence too far for me but ahh beauty and love thereof conuers all

    This book is the last in her trilogy The first being “Wicked” and the second being “Reckless” While “Wicked” was not one of Shannon Drake’s better books I do have to say that both “Reckless” and “Beguiled” are must reads for any historical romance or Shannon Drake fan Critics of this book ask how the hero and heroine are able to fall in love when they never seem to be together First of all I have to say that they are together plenty but for the murder mystery plot to keep developing the hero and heroine are separated also This is a very nice change from the hero and heroine NEVER leaving one another’s sides The hero and heroine have great chemistry and I just love this book
