  • Mary - Buried Under Romance

    I feel that the title really undermines this book. A scoundrel? Bah. Somerton is a bloody conquerer, an Alexander the Great of the Victorian era. My heart was taken in a roller coaster ride with this ruthless, unscrupulous, absurdly demanding anti-hero, and emerged with a potential risk of heart attack, I might add. What magnificent skill it took to depict such a man as the hero - the man who was the dominant villain in every sense of the word in...

    I liked this better than the previous book, but it was slow, so very slow. The first 100 pages of the book are super boring, which is surprising since Somerton is a supposed scoundrel and works as a spymaster. Somehow Markham (Luisa)'s time as his secretary is very boring. The pace of the book picks up about 130 pages in, but then again, not really fast, only not as slow as before. Still slow and rather annoying that Somerton is still on about hi...

    Sadly, only 1.5 stars from me. Almost a dnf. This was not a book I particularly liked. And I have enjoyed this author's other books.It is the story of Luisa, the third princess in hiding, who has to masquerade as the Earl of Somerton’s secretary. Dressed as a man, of course. I am not a huge fan of this plot device- I reckon you would always be able to guess it was a woman, and I don't think a man as supposedly clever as Somerton would have take...

    4.5 stars This book was a bit different than the other two. A majority of the book wasn't focused on how the main couple, Luisa and Somerton, fell in love but rather how Luisa played her part in the events leading up to taking her principality back and Somerton's main focus was his wife's affair and his revenge against the couple. After all this was settled everything that has happened in the previous two books wrapped up nicely. After the three ...

    I was so enthralled with this book, I didn't want to put it down. It has the intensity that I crave in a historical romance with excellent writing. The characters had a complexity that made them real people, and not always in good ways. Our hero lives up to the scoundrel name for sure, but his path of redemption makes for delectable reading.I have to give this one 4.5 stars, because it's just that good. I am adding Juliana Gray to my must read HR...

    SPOILERS THROUGHOUT!!20/11 - What an outlandish plot (and this is a romance, so that's saying something)! Three princesses (this is the third in the series, featuring Luisa the oldest sister and future queen) in hiding after the murder of their father and husband (or brother-in-law). A rogue group of revolutionaries have run the princesses out of their tiny German principality and sent them into hiding in the houses of appropriately dangerous (an...

    Very strange book. The love story was nice, and the conversion of Somerton from villain (in Juliana Gray's earlier book "A Gentleman Never Tells") to hero was convincing. I wish the story had been concluded when Somerton and the heroine Luisa were in Italy and Somerton realized what an ass he had been with his first wife.But no such luck - the reader is forced to carry on with the overarching, totally farcical plot about the revolutionary terrori...

    4.5 starsBecause I'm writing this for my own amusement, it's longer than the reviews of mine which you might read posted elsewhere, so be warned! .This is the third and final book in Ms Gray’s Princesses in Hiding trilogy, and tells the story of the eldest of the three sisters, Luisa, the Crown Princess of Holstein-Schweinwald-Huhnhof, who, following the assassination of her father and young husband, had briefly been ruler of the small princi...

    Have you ever read a book where you sit at the end and are all "omg. I...don't even know what to say about this one."? Welp. That's kinda me. lol How to School Your Scoundrel was so not what I was expecting but dang I loved it for what it was. I enjoyed the characters, the continuation of the secondary storyline--princesses in hiding after an assassination attempt on the royal family in their country--and the romance that was just a touch dreamy....

    I appreciate that Gray was trying give us a different, more complex hero than you usually see in romances. In this case, I never really liked Somerton. Occasionally, I found his situation sympathetic but I felt he caused it himself by his selfish actions. I know by the end we are supposed to believe that he's changed because of his love for Luisa but I never felt that. I never felt any sort of chemistry between Luisa and Somerton; their romance n...

    An excellent closure to the Princess in Hiding series, the story inter-relates with the Affair in Moonlight series where the Earl of Somerton was set as the villain.In this story, the man is a total anti-hero, a villain in A Gentleman Never Lies where he was obsessed in finding his so-called adulterous runaway wife and their son. The story picks up where he was trying to find where his missing wife. Enter our eldest Princess, Luisa, now disguised...

    3 stars As much as I like Ms. Grey’s writing style, it wasn’t enough to elevate the mediocre plot of this third and final book in this series to the level of the first two books.A lot of things have to happen in this book: the romance, saving the principality and wrapping up the stories of the three sisters. In my opinion, only the reunion worked really well. I liked the heroine, Emily, and the way she managed the hero. The poor plotting was ...

    Of course I start with the third book. Sigh.But this was good - better than expected. Heavier on plot, intrigue, and gender roles, and thankfully, not nearly as much sex. Oh, it's there, don't worry about that! But thankfully, it's a nicely added touch, rather than the primary focus. Going to try at least one more book by this author, see if she's really this good, or if this one was a fluke.

    JG completely turned Somerton around for me and in the end I was in love with him! Wonderful read and I wasn't ready for it to be over. The epi was cute and can't wait for that novella for the Duke.

    I enjoyed finishing the "Princess in Hiding" trilogy. But somehow, this third book was a bit more difficult to read than the two before. Maybe it was due to the fact that some spoilers had been given in book 2. And maybe because the villain was the villain and then not and then yes and somehow... I guess Ms. Gray wasn't quite sure whom to pick (this reminded me a little of "Cocoa Beach"). Is it just me or did she get inspiration for "Cocoa Beach"...

    Juliana Gray can write the historical men with a little more accuracy (i.e. not perfect, having mistresses etc.) better than most authors. However, in this case, I'm not particularly sure I liked the main hero quite as much, and the main couple in general really didn't do much for me.

    I enjoyed the last book of this trilogy. I didn’t need the added drama of Somerton’s first wife... or I needed her to be a b!&tch. Overall a satisfactory ending to the books.

    Somerton never really redeemed himself in my eyes. He remained callous, gratuitously cruel, and generally unappealing.

    I'll be honest, I read Gray's previous series "Affairs by Moonlight" back when it came out 2 years ago and it was only after someone pointed out that Somerton our lead here was the main baddie in the second book of that series. Now that I think about it, he was crazy! Like he kidnaps his wife and threatens murder crazy. He wants his heir, really, who cares about the wife? But to save herself and her son she ran away to the countryside to hide fro...

    How to School Your Scoundrel by Juliana Gray is the 3rd book in her historical romance, A Princess in Hiding series. I very much enjoyed the first two books in this series, as Juliana Gray does a wonderful job in creating a fun storyline with a little bit of everything; romance, historical, mystery, danger, but above all the story had a lot of humor, and was joy to read.A quick but spoiler free background on this series: Three princesses (Louisa,...
