Book Review: The Desperate Love of a Lord by Jane Lark

Desperate Love of a Lord (Marlow Intrigues #3.5) by Jane Lark
Genre: Adult Fiction (Historical Romance)
Date Published: October 5, 2014
Publisher: HarperImpulse

From Kindle bestselling Historical romance author, Jane Lark, comes a brand new FREE novella to accompany her breathtakingly beautiful Regency series.

Fiercely independent, Lady Violet Rimes, the merry widow, has played the town, dangling men from leashes like a pack of adoring hounds, always the one in control. She has never let a man toy with her.

An idle, attractive rake, Lord Geoffrey Sparks has had little to do other than enjoy life. He has let Violet play her games for months without complaint, because he likes her company—and admittedly her bed. But in recent months he's found himself gravitating towards her more and more. Things have changed between them. He likes her for who she is and not simply the notorious widow. He thought his feelings were returned, but . . . Why then has she suddenly vanished from town without a word?

A couple of months ago, she'd complained about his friend being a heartbreaker, but now Violet is breaking his heart... 

The Desperate Love of a Lord is a novella that accompanies the Marlow Intrigues by Jane Lark. I love this series. It's a definite favorite of mine, however this time the story felt very rushed. I felt like I didn't really get to know Violet or Geoffrey as much as I could have. There was a little bit of a role reversal. Violet was the promiscuous "scoundrel" in this case, and Geoffrey seemed more the monogamous fellow, which I really liked. That was fun and different, and it was interesting to watch them find each other again.

Check out my reviews of a few of Jane Lark's other books:

Jane is a writer of authentic, passionate and emotional love stories.

She began her first historical novel at sixteen, but a life full of adversity derailed her as she lives with the restrictions of Ankylosing Spondylitis.

When she finally completed a novel it was because she was determined not to reach forty still saying, I want to write a book.

Now Jane is writing both Regency and New Adult novels and she is thrilled to be giving her characters life in others’ imaginations at last.

Jane is also a Chartered Member of the Institute of Personnel and Development, and uses her knowledge of people to bring her characters to life.

‘Basically I love history and I’m a sucker for a love story. I love the feeling of falling in love; it’s wonderful being able to do it time and time again in fiction, and my understanding of people helps me write the really intense relationships I enjoy developing. I like writing characters who will capture your attention from the moment you open my book.’

Jane is a member of the Society of Authors, the Romance writers of America, Romance Novelists Society and the Historical Novelists Society
