    Condemned & Admired: The Earl's Cunning Wife (Love's Second Chance Book 9) by Bree Wolf is a fantastic read. While, book 9 in this series, it can be read as a stand alone. Well written, well crafted, and well executed, with engaging and charming characters. The storyline flows sea...

    This book has such an odd blend of exciting, intuitive writing and unrealistic events and plot. Totally lost interest 70% in, and read a couple other books before coming back to finish it. The cameos for me were annoying. They didnt serve to advance the plot of enhance the story in...

    This is book 9 in the Love?s Second Chance series. It?s a story about a young woman fighting against old dinosaur rules. The type of rules that say women are goods to be bartered with and sold to the highest bidder, women are to be seen and not heard, and they certainly aren?t al...

    This story proves that Bree Wolf has an amazing ability to write about any subject with so much flair and imagination that as a reader one cannot help but long for the next story to be published once the current one is finished being read. I loved the strengths shown by the main chara...

    Fate brought them together not just because a young lady needed saving, but because they needed each other. Every page turn brought something new to their romance and the story. There was a spark between them from the moment they met and it started their adventure. I could not put it d...

    I would like to thank the author for a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. Violet was stolen away from a cruel father by her mother at a young age. She grew up as the daughter of a French privateer and now wishes to command her own ship. Nothing could convince he...

    Continuation of the series This is the book that is a continuation of the story that starts in Trapped and Liberated. While it isn't necessary to have read it, it does make this book a better read as you are then learning what happens to Violet. This is a much more complex story tha...

    When I start a Bree Wolf novel, I find I can not put it down. This one is no exception. I was up until 2:00AM in order to finish it. I do not want to go over the plot as many others have given a good synopsis of it. What was powerful in this store was the message of how we can make our...

    Series: Love's Second Chance #9 Publication Date: 8/14/18 This is a new-to-me author and I could easily become a regular reader. The story is well written, well-plotted and well-paced. If you love a swashbuckling sea adventure with a bit of fancy balls, kidnappings, and rescues thr...

    I really, really liked this book. It felt more mature than most romances I have read. I could not put this book down. Page after page there was glimpses of devotion of family, reflection of one's life and love. I loved the characters in the book. Especially, Violette, she is a far cry ...

    What constitutes a family? Is it blood ties? Or is more than blood involved? This is the theme explored in this riveting tale combining the Regency Era romance with a tale of pirates (a.k.a privateers). A drunken earl is bundled aboard an English vessel, as an intended ?sailor?, ...

    I love the thought of a woman privateer! Not a pirate mind you, she?s completely sanctioned and legal! I loved Violet?s confidence. Poor Oliver, he really had a no life before he stumbled into Violet?s world. I like how he had to stand up for his family, his real family that is, ...

    Condemned and Admired (The Earl?s Cunning Wife) is the first book I?ve read by Bree Wolf. It is an historical story involving both England and France. It is quite a long book if you are a slow reader, just as a reference. 4 stars from this reader. Our heroine starts as Violet Wi...

    What a fantastic historical fiction/romance! I am new to the series, so I was relieved to know this could be read as a standalone! Getting to know Violette and Oliver was a perfect way to spend the day! Violette is swept away from the life that was dictated to her by her cold, unfee...
