    1. Series The Honorable Scoundrels 3Publication Date 11 21 17This is the last of three novellas in the Honorable Scoundrels series and it is absolutely lovely It is well paced, excellently written and Ms Barnes manages to do the almost impossible she manages to provide a truly romantic story filled with fully developed and likable characters while also wrapping up the series with all of the siblings and their spouses in a novella All I can say is well done The series follows three sisters who are g [...]


    2. Having read the previous book in this series The Earl Who Loved Her and enjoyed it, I was pleased to pick up The Duke Who Came To Town too This is the story of the eldest sister, Josephine, who works as an accountant in order to maintain her sisters in some sort of respectability Of course, if you have read the previous two books in the series, you will already know that Louise and Eve have already found their true loves, and this conclusion to the trilogy sees the three sisters eventually reuni [...]


    3. My favorite in this series Devon and Josephine are great characters with fantastic personalities Their interaction and dialog is very funny Love how Josephine holds her own with being an accountant and actually having input into the affairs of the hotel Lovely story and great epilogue.I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley.


    4. Originally published at Reading RealityThis is the third, and presumably final, novella novelette in the Honorable Scoundrels series I say final because the series has been the story of the three Potter sisters finally finding their happily ever afters, after having been left destitute by their late and not much lamented father.There are only three sisters, so unless cousins start popping up, only three stories in the series.Each of the stories in the series has been a delectable little treat, a [...]

    11. Sophie Barnes is a new to me author that I ve been keeping an eye on for some time When this trio of novellas popped up on NetGalley, I quickly jumped at the chance to read them I received advanced reader copies in exchange for an honest review and, while I enjoyed the first two book in the series, I thought The Duke Who Came to Town was merely ok.For me, this was by far the weakest of the three stories Like the first two, it is a very quick read easily finished in one night and it is well paced [...]


    12. I am voluntarily submitting my review after receiving an ARC of this ebook via NetGalley.This is a short and sweet novella that is easily read in one sitting While it is the last in the series, I did not even realize I had missed anything until I reached the very end, so it can be read as a standalone book I will, however, most likely end up going back and reading the others now since I did enjoy this one The plot is entertaining and the characters well drawn for the short length of the work, bu [...]

    14. This is a quick read so it has to have pretty much of an insta love plot line in which the characters know each other for only a few days and the Duke is already contemplating marriage The story has a mix of a modern feel with a heroine who proudly is working to provide for herself after her father lost the family s money She works as an accountant for a hotel, but an arrogant duke insists that she quits her job so she won t embarrass her guardian, a friend of his That does not go over well and [...]

    25. Devon isn t one to hold his thoughts in, because I am tired of pretending there s no sexual attraction between us, Josephine I liked that Devon spoke his mind, his eyes darkened, the edge of his mouth lifting in the wickedest smile she d ever seen Did I not mention the effect your temper has on me I enjoyed this book Josephine was a strong willed woman who tested Devon s patience.
