Reviews His Lordship's Last Wager (Horsemen of the Apocalypse #3)

  • Ursula
    Wow. Anyone interested in canals and locks and how they all work in England? If so, this is the book for you. I struggled to maintain my interest and barely made it through to the end.There was only one really interesting part in this book, and that was when the hero told his war story (rescued his mate in Spain). That was fascinating. But the whole bear rescue/canal trip and so-called "wagers" regarding getting people hitched by the end of the s...

    The long awaited third instalment of Miranda Davis' deliciously, quirky Horsemen of the Apocalypse Regency Romance series in which the previously dreadful Lady Jane Babcock gets her comeuppance when she clashes with the secret object of her affection, Lord Seelye Burton. A ridiculous journey ensues concerning one brown bear, a crazy boat trip across England's canals and the seemingly mismatched couple finally putting aside their differences to fi...

    (3.5 stars) In 2012 by happenstance I came upon a $0.99 HR with an unusual plot by an unknown author. At the time I read it, it had very few reviews, but it was a delightful read and became a big hit. Yeah, of course, I'm talking about THE DUKE'S TATTOO and my review here is about the long-awaited third entry in Miranda Davis's Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse series.Unlike most HR authors, Davis hasn't been churning out myriad sub-quality novels ...

    Update! I'm finished and feel "topped up". It was wonderful.The whole series is fun, but Seelye's story has it all: Fab banter between all the characters; brilliant scenes between the horsemen; one of my favorite heroes of all time; some of the best side characters (I'm looking at you, George!); a bit of "road romance"; some shocking turns, and the loveliest denouement ever, ever. *sigh*(Question: Is there such a thing as an Oxford semi-colon?)Re...

    There's just something so satisfying about a Taming of the Shrew book. From the prologue teased at the end of The Baron's Betrothal (I've said before it's a torture device - it's true), we knew this book was going to be a raucous ride. I love my heroines headstrong and my heroes highhanded – I love the clashes; the more fireworks, mayhem and collateral damage dragged into the hurricane the better. That said, it also takes a deft author to deliv...

    While this didn't have the punch that the first book did, it was still fun in a lot of ways. Seeyle has come back from the war a different man and Jane has become a differnt woman than the imp that Lord Seeyle knew. We met Jane in the first book and she wasn't a nice person and she hadn't changed a bit. She has her reasons, misguided though they are. It took our hero awhile to see the error of her ways and it took Seeyle awhile to see the error o...

    Book 3,of the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse Lord Sealy's turn at matrimonial blundering. This is a clash between a witty, elegant dandy and the sister of his childhood friend George, the Duke of Bath. Lady Jane has turned into a diamond of the first water and has been rejecting suitors right and left waiting for Lord Sealy's return from the war. Unfortunately war is what she gets when she meets him again after 10 years. How this involves a bear is...
  • Sara
    Unstoppable force meets immovable object (until he moves)I have loved all the books in this series. The reason being that its heroines are intrepid self possess intelligent women that take charge of their lives and the heroes are men that try to catch up as best they can. If you're looking for a well researched, impeccable written fun adventure romance, you've come to the right place. Enjoy, books like these are few and far between.

    I've waited almost 5 years for this book. It was even better than I expected. Ms Davis improved her writing craft (it wasn't bad! but still got better) and wrote a very clever story. One star down because I'm not a fan of madcap road trip theme. I loved the romance and the fact that heroine was so stubborn trying to achieve her goals. I hope the plan for a fourth book will come to fruition.
  • Julia DeBarrioz
    This was great fun, I really enjoyed it. Definitely a one of a kind plot in this genre! The historical detail and the dialogue are both to die for. Bravo!We don't really like the heroine of this book when we meet her in the first installment, but she instantly grew on me here. She's strong, smart, and feisty. More heroine's like this in literature, everyone, please!! I wanted to smack the hero every time he told her how to change to attract a man...
  • Ritsky
    The four years waiting is paid off. Definitely my favorite of the series so far!!! I enjoyed reading this book. I mean it. I savored each sentence and when I reached the end of the book, i wished there were more. Seelye has been my favorite among the four, and love-hate relationship isone of my favourite theme. Regarding the last one, Ms Davis has done very well with this one. The main characters are likable - if not lovable! I like the developme...
    Delightful!Yes, this is a historical HEA so there is that over-arching plot. But, the whole getting to the HEA was full of great and often humorous dialogue, really different settings, colorful characters (these are the Four Horsemen after all), and a bear. Add in a way too impulsive heroine who has little concern for consequences along with a brutally honest yet soft-hearted hero and the novel is set for abundant misadventure. Simply delightful,
  • Donna Foster
    I have waited 2 years for this!And it was well worth it ! She has such a great sense of humor she can make the dialogue awesome it makes you laugh out loud! I just love her stories I can't wait for the next one! If you haven't read the other two you're missing something wonderful!
  • Cheryl
    A very enjoyable read.I have read the previous two books in this series and this one was as good as they were. Witty dialog, a unique story and we'll written. The book was truly enjoyable. Can't wait till the next one.

    I loved this book. It made me smile all the way through and the authors comments at the end had me laughing aloud! Well worth the wait.
