    4. Honestly, i bought it just because there was a book fair came up last year, the book was cheap and i was in the mood for historical romance So, i just randomly pick it up and i thought i should give it a go and oh boy, i was wrong Here s a habit of mine, i do not like read multiple books at the same time and i wont move on unless it was really really bad except for some occasional moment where i was determined to finish this book as a challenge for myself The book was bad I mean like the writing [...]

    5. The title could apply to both the MCs I was entertained by their first and second meeting but then it became about fighting their lust for each other The H had some misunderstandings about the heroine that made me uncomfortable and lose interest in their growing relationship The spy plot felt vague with obvious villains and made me like this less The ending was very tidy and happy, so much so that it felt out of place.Overall, not something I want to read again despite some humor and wit And sex [...]

    9. For most of this book I couldn t get over the fact that Brandon was under the impression that Verena had slept with his brother AND his best friend This is all cleared up in one tiny paragraph at the end, but still, it was distracting Also, the missing list suddenly became less important to the Home Office for some reason, even though they had been threatening a number of things to retrieve it throughout the book The whole plot was only half conceived The final scene with the bad guys happened r [...]

    16. After far too long spent trying to get the correct edition, I will simply say that this is not the image or the ISBN of the book I have The only one with the right picture that I can access is an e book This is the second in the Talisman series, of which I seem to have read almost all but this one As this was a while ago, I really don t remember the other books This was very light and somewhat amusing I appreciated the heroine, but the general feeling was a bit too light and somewhat shallow A b [...]

The second in the Talisman Ring series, this one was just okay This book was seriously redeemed by it s awesome heroine Verena Westforth is a widow with secrets about her family though I m not sure I was able to really understand why her family should have been such a big secret She s a member of the demimonde, known to be a seductress though not really and has made the St John family nervous because Chase obtained a license to marry her Well, she turned him down but the St Johns didn t know tha [...]

    21. This is the second in the Tailsman Ring series, and I still enjoy watching the brother get stuck with the ring Brandon and Verena were good leads, and I loved her quirky butler, Herberts As always with this author there was great banter and some laugh aloud parts I am looking forward to reading the third book Original review posted at paragraphsandpetticoatssp

    23. o I so love the chemistry between Verena and Brandon Nice plot but I was a bit worried with so many characters at the beginning but later on it was fast paced and engaging Though how big an impact can A LIST be If the mystery and excitement is something other than A LIST which brought them together , the story would have been better.This is my first read by Karen Hawkins, and it will definitely not be my last

    24. Cute story that continues the series well Some good humor and likable characters I especially loved the part where Brand got his comeuppance for his behavior when he first met Verena he was being rather rude at first I have to admit that I only saw part of the end coming I figured out about half of the mystery.

    25. It s a keeper loved reading about the ring I mean, at the end I literally screamed out loud when Chase caught it Here i thought Brand would give it to Devon But I am so glad I get read Chase s story next I loved Herbert, okay That man is an awesome butler I don t think the last time I laughed so much reading about butlers Very strong and balanced characters.

    26. Another fun read and enjoyable time with the St John brothers From what I ve ascertained this is a series of historical romance type books incorporating the brothers and their family legacy associated with the St John talisman ring Truly funny and interesting reading from a reader who has never been much on historical romance.

    27. In regards to my favorite authors of romance, Karen Hawkins is one of the few writers who creates such wonderful settings and passionate love stories that I am sad when the book ends I want to be one of her characters and experience the story as she writes it Confessions of a Scoundrel is the 2nd in the Talismen Ring series and each book gets better and better.
