Review also posted on my blog The Private Affairs of Lady Jane Fielding is a high emotion steamy novella After an unfortunate accident Lord Jacob Fielding and Lady Jane Fielding are deemed unable to have any children which causes issues when their lack of a son brings Jacob s vile brother Arthur on the scene expecting to be named heirI ve read one novel from Viveka Portman before this one The Wicked Confessions of Lady Cecelia Stanton and although I enjoyed the story I thought the formatting was too overly edited and choppy In The Private Affairs of Lady Jane Fielding the formatting was much better and easier to followThe book is told from Jane s perspective and she was refreshingly honest and I found her easier to like than I had expected Her husband Jacob s emotions needed to be covered in order for the plot to make sense but we et a A Shark Never Sleeps: Wheeling and Dealing with the NFL's Most Ruthless Agent great insight to Jacob just from Jane s telling because of her obvious love and care for his feelingsThe characterisation wasreat Portman really makes it easy to hate Arthur as he is very irritating and his actions infuriating He was selfish and throughout I was hoping for him to My Jihad: The True Story of An American Mujahid's Amazing Journey from Usama Bin Laden's Training Camps to Counterterrorism with the FBI and CIA get his comeuppance Matthew was the opposite a lot sincere and likeable and the author developed the main characters a lot than I had anticipatediven the length of the bookThe way the plot plays out probably leads The Private Affairs of Lady Jane Fielding down a slightly sordid route yet some of their choices felt easy to understand I loved the tone and the way Jane recounted the story The Private Affairs of Lady Jane Fielding was fascinating a little erotic and easy to enjoy455Book The Book of Leviathan gifted for honest review The one thing that Lady Jane and her beloved husband Jacob had was a love match which for the ton of Regency England was a rarity indeed Jane and Jacob had a fine home and two lovely daughters but no heir to keep up Jacob s line of inheritance Jane was confident though that she and her ever amorous husband would prevail that is until a horrific accident leaves Jacob unable to sire any childrenWhen Jacob s revolting wretch of a brother Arthurets wind of Jacob s possible misfortune but his probable fortune at becoming Jacob s heir Arthur appears at Fielding to see the situation with his own eyes After the unsavory brother leaves his ailing brother and sister in law Jacob comes up with a plan that might thwart Arthur s coveting of Jacob s title and holdingsJacob has a dear cousin Matthew who is on the unlucky and poor side of the family Jacob had always attempted to help him in his endeavors to better his situations but Matthew has pride and won t take charity even if it is from a cherished family member When Jacob calls upon Matthew to assist in his uest for an heir both Matthew and Jane are aghast but realizing the disgusting Arthur will Nine Ghosts gain all spurns Matthew and Jane into the unthinkableWhen the unthinkable becomes so pleasurable what it takes for the trio to come to terms with their consciences and their feeling will surprise the readerI have to say that I truly enjoyed this short but sizzling novella It was well written and while I usually run from stories told in the first person I welcomed this tale of desperation turned to perseverance and awakening Jane and Jacob are a strong and caring couple who have a powerful relationship Matthew s entrance may shake the couple a little but it would take much to sever what this pair has and maybe what the trio could have together is worth the piued emotions and jealousy THE PRIVATE AFFAIRS OF

installment of the Regency Diaries Jane and Jacob Fielding have a true love match and when all they have worked for is threatened they work together to solve the problem no matter how uncomfortable it may be I very much like the encounters between Jane and Jacob as there is true respect and affection between them which results in both being able to be brutally honest about their situation Matthew is just a sweet sweet wonder and his joining the family is so awkward that it is endearing and I liked him immediately The naughty bits are delightful and the way the three solve the awkwardness of the situation is as exciting as it is naughty for its time and place Once again I was totally pulled into Portman s world andlad to be there My only complaint the Regency Diaries are just too short

Jane is truly aware of her fortunate circumstance Until that is Jacob has a terrible accident that leaves his future in doubt and his plans in turmoil If Jacob were to die the rules of inheritance state that his distasteful brother Arthur would inherit and Jane and her daughters would be left at his mercy With no male child Jane s status would be severely reduced or endangered should Arthur decide she would marry him A scandalous and rather unusual solution to the situation comes to Jacob his cousin Matthew is kind Arabian Challenge generous and most importantly willing to help His rapport with the couple is much to both their tastes but can they manage to produce a male heir before anyone discovers this unusual arrangementSurprisingly for a novella Viveka Portman manages to define character and voice and add an emotional component into what could be an incredibly tricky situation Both thrilled and appalled at the solution all three in this triangle are struggling with their own feelings of jealousy envy and insecurity as the bond between Jane and Matthewrows none unsettled by the emotional turmoil than Jacob Portman has cleverly iven us characters that are risking emotional pain and suffering for the best of intentions even with deception at the heart of the arrangement Fast paced and tightly written readers will be drawn into the emotions as the story progresses to reveal some very steamy moments on the way to the conclusion A uick and steamy read that doesn t lose sight of the love and determination of one man to protect what he cherishes most his

backlist The Private Affairs of Lady Jane Fielding is the third erotic novella in the Regency Diaries series The series is a selection of five diary styled novellas revealing the secret thoughts and desires of Ladies during the Regency era This third story is set at the estate Fielding Place in Berkshire England 1813 It s a captivating historical romance well paced and uniue plot Look this series tackles the sexual frustrations yearnings and discoveries of women in an era that is vastly different to how we live The historical attitudes dialogue and expectations of the Regency era were conservative proper austere parochial and based on social class This series reflects that well It s written from each Heroine s POV and presented as entries of a diary a very uniue way of story

So much so that after a debilitating injury to hisroin from a spooked horse he concocts a wicked plan involving his distant cousin in begetting an heir to protect his estate and wife and daughters

2014 Harleuin Escape publication I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewJane and her husband Jacob are very happily married until one day Jacob is the victim of a horrible accident He survives but it is now uestionable as to whether or not he can father children The sad truth is that if he can not produce a male heir his horrible brother Arthur will inherit everything and leave Jane under his control Jacob simply can not abide by that so after a year of trying to conceive with no luck Jacob makes a proposal to his wife that could solve all their problems This novella approximately 71 pages is a regency period historical romance but not the usual fare This book would be definitely be classified as erotica For any of you that follow my reviews you know that I steer far away from hard core erotica and if I can avoid ANY erotica I do I did read an Escape publication a while back and it pushed the envelope a little but it was pretty ood so without doing any research I agreed to review this one when asked So for the record this one is pretty far out of my comfort zone However the set up is such that even if you are not a reader of erotica romance especially with a regency period setting you might find that this premise is uite understandable Producing a male heir was of utmost importance in those days The men were under a lot of pressure to marry if for no other reason than to hopefully produce male issue Women were forbidden to inherit and an estate would be passed off to the nearest male relative even if that meant a sixth cousin twenty times removed or something In this case Arthur a most despicable man would inherit and the thought so repulsed Jane and Jacob they took extreme measures to keep that from taking place The author did a Cheyenne: A Sweet Historical Romance great job was depicting Arthur in a bad light so that the reader actually feared for Jane s future if something were to happen to Jacob and money would have been the least of her problems The entire uncomfortable situation was well written with the people involved expressing real human feelings and emotions Matthew was perhaps the most uncomfortable of everyone but Jacob also exhibited feelings he didn t factor into his master plan Janeot caught between feeling The Battle of Maldon and Other Old English Poems guilty ashamed embarrassed and curious excited and initial repulsion turned into a pleasing experiment that everyone could accept The story was strangely fascinating for me and I was really pulled into the storyline despite my reservations I wouldn t want to read this type of book often but the author did areat job of taking this subject matter and making it a story that could appeal to a wide audience of romance readers I don t condone this scenario but again the premise is one that made the book seem less about the sexual escapades and about people learning to cope with a bad deal and finding a way to make it work for them in spades For those who enjoy erotica erotic historical romance or for those that want to read something a litt.
