Released: July 27, 2010
Series: Stud Club #3
Published by Ballantine Books
Pages: 368

The final installment of the Stud Club series is about the remaining bachelor of the Stud Club, Julian Belllamy and the Lady Lily. Right from the first book you can see that Julian is madly in love with his murdered friend’s deaf twin sister, the only person who doesn’t seem to realize is Lily herself. But, as Julian gets more obsessed with finding Leo’s murderers believing that they were really after him because of his very shady past, Lily gets worried for his health and makes him promise her three nights with him where he can help her in society to find a husband.I have enjoyed this series greatly, each book has given a great couple with completely different characters, I don’t think this will ever be my favourite series but I definately liked it. And, I am glad that at last I have read Julian and Liliy’s book! You know from the other two books that Julian loves Lily, and so I was pleased to see them get their HEA.

Julian, I think, would go under the tortured hero catergory, after living his childhood in the gutter and then his adulthood trying to wreak revenge on the aristocracy he doesn’t feel worthy of Lily. I have to say that annoyed me a little, the whole unworthy thing, I am glad that Lily was having none of it. In fact I believe Julian was my least favourite hero in this series, for some reason he didn’t capture me like Spencer and Rhys did. However, Lily, I did like she adventurous and wasn’t afraid to go after Julian when she realized she loved him.

What I liked most about this book was the final discovery over who the Leo’s murderer was and why he was killed! This part of the story has kept me guessing all the way through! And I didn’t know the answer right up until it was revealed, which was fantastic, I love that it kept me guessing. I also liked the whys of his killing, I don’t want to spoil it if you haven’t read it, but I thought what happened was the best explanation.

I enjoyed this book and this trilogy and I will definitely be looking out for more books by Tessa Dare.

About Tessa Dare

Tessa Dare is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of fourteen historical romance novels and five novellas. Her books have won numerous accolades, including Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA® award (twice) and the RT Book Reviews Seal of Excellence. Booklist magazine named her one of the “new stars of historical romance,” and her books have been contracted for translation in more than a dozen languages.

Mixing wit, sensuality, and emotion, Tessa writes Regency-set romance novels that feel relatable to modern readers. With her bestselling “Spindle Cove” and “Castles Ever After” series, she has had great fun creating heroines who defy the conventions of their time—engaging in “unladylike” pursuits that range from paleontology to beer-making—and dreaming up the strong-willed, sexy heroes who find their hearts ensnared by them.

A librarian by training and a booklover at heart, Tessa makes her home in Southern California, where she lives with her husband, their two children, and a trio of cosmic kitties.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
