Présentation de l'éditeur

The Marquis of Lyndhurst is tired of women who are more attracted to his title and money than to his charms. So when his mother requests that he go to the Isle of Wight to court another eligible woman, Ryker decides on a little game … his cousin Robby will pose as him, and he will pose as his cousin—a rake and a gambler. If the woman falls in love with him, it will be for himself. Only then will he reveal who he is.

What the marquis doesn’t expect, however, is someone like Jewelene. Lovely and provocative, intelligent and headstrong, Jewels cares not for status and wealth. Ryker finds her irresistible, and she finds herself falling for the handsome man she believes to be the marquis’ cousin.

But Jewelene is playing a game of her own. In a daring bid to repay her family’s debts, each night she poses as Babette, the French card dealer. When Ryker begins flirting with the sultry Babette, Jewelene realizes she has become her own rival. If she reveals the truth, will her house of cards come tumbling down?

I am a huge fan of Claudy Conn's and have read every book in her fae series and her vampire series. This was not only my first foray into her Regency series, but also my first non-paranormal book set in this time period. It was such a fun read. Was it predictable in spots? Absolutely, but that made it all the more fun. I know that sounds odd, but in this case it is so true. I knew they were going to fall in love. I knew there would be conflict and misunderstanding over who they were and who they pretended to be. I knew there was going to be an HEA. I did not, however, necessarily know how they were going to get there. I found myself glued to the book and enjoying every minute. I plan to read another of her books from this series as soon as possible.

I was given a copy of this book as part of a blog tour.

I was gifted Claudy Conn's Rogues, Rakes, and Jewels to review. Being a huge fan of Jane Austen, with Emma and Pride and Prejudice being two of my favorite romance novels I was thrilled when Claudy sent me her regency romance to review. This novel had everything; danger, a villain, twists, and more secrets between characters then I could count. I really enjoyed the story and the strong female lead. One thing that I will say about Conn's Regency romance is this is no Jane Austen. There was serious heat in the book between the main characters. That just made this an even better regency piece. I recommend it for a fun and delightful read. I will look to read her other Regency romances now.

Rogues, Rakes & Jewels by Claudy Conn
Marquis Ryker of Lyndhurst is sent to the Isle of Wight by his mother as she wants him to meet some country chit. He drags his cousin along, the Honorable Oscar Robendale but comes up with the plan to let Robby be him. He believes every woman only wants him for his title and wealth...not that he's not a handsome man...he is. He's intrigued and surprised with the chit he finds at the Henshaw house though. Will his switch backfire on him?

Sir James and Jewelene Henshaw have been left orphans and with debts. Papa liked to gamble a bit much. They have a light at the end of the tunnel though, Lightening their race horse. They just have to get his entrance fees to the derby. Thus enters...Babette. Jewels solution. Or Babette could just add more to their troubles.

Of course there is Lord Omsbury who will do anything to make Jewel his. Anything! A book full of unique characters as usual. And of course there is always the confusion that lies bring into a story. This isn't a real long book but it's packed with adventure and romance.

***WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILERS!***

I finished this more out of morbid curiosity (and perhaps with a touch of sado-masochism thrown in) than because it was worth reading (even though it was free).

The writing was adequate (at least at a high school writing level) but the dialogue left me feeling like the book was more of an outline than an actual fleshed out novel. More than half the time, the characters ended up talking in incomplete sentences and barely managed to make sense. I believe that the author was attempting to add a sense of personality and quirkiness to the dialogue/characters but I personally found it obnoxious and over done. The "..." that were continuously peppered throughout the dialogue were also extremely annoying. No one seemed to be able to get through a sentence without a set of ellipses popping up.

The point of view jumped around quite a bit amidst the chapters and the characters seemed to jump around almost as much. The addition of the side-kick character romances were cloying and overdone. It also didn't help that I pretty much detested every character in the book for their simpering stupidity and complete lack of common sense. The heroine was particularly bad - the author attempted to style her as some sort of adorable hellion but she just came across as whiny and obnoxious. I actually wanted her to end up with the evil villain - but sadly, I didn't get MY version of a happier ending. Plus, it's not a particularly fun read when the heroine spends the last quarter of the book bursting into tears continually and agonizing about how terrible her life is.

The hero was extremely one dimensional and basically was just there to provide a penis for a completely and totally impractical beach sex scene (and a pretty boring one at that).

The evil villain of the story was a cookie-cutter model of the "bad aristocrat" - basically, "I want what I want or else." (That may even have been an actual line.) The author seemed to think it necessary to bludgeon the reader over the head with the fact that he wasn't the "ideal suitor" by throwing in towards the end of the book a few paragraphs from the villain's point of view. It was completely cliche and very high-school girl fanfiction style to include the villain thinking of how he was going to make the heroine his and would go about taming her with violence and abuse once they were married. Yes, yes... We get that he's a bastard. The overdramatized evil pondering of the villain to prove this point was unnecessary - plus, I think I hurt myself rolling my eyes so often during that long and ridiculous 30% of the story.

The ending was contrived and impractical - I really don't think that a marquis is going to be riding around babysitting a horse and completing accepting the fact that his future bride intends to gamble on said horse in an upcoming derby.

And although I am very flexible on names (and knew from the plot synopsis going in what they were)... I really can't fathom why the characters were named as they were. Jewelene? What? Why would anyone in historical England be called Jewelene or Jewels? Why would a marquis be called Ryker or Rye? Why do all these people have ridiculous nicknames? It's fine that an author asks a reader to set aside their disbelief but to ask us to completely bury it under a landslide of bad childish names, emotionally stunted characters and innane dialogue is too much.

Free or not, I honestly can't recommend this book to anyone. Only my OCD prevented me from stopping ten pages in and deleting the book from my library. There were so many inconsistencies, emotionally overwrought and sobbing females throwing themselves onto beds, exhausted plot devices and poor dialogue that I can find no redeeming qualities in this novel at all. It may be that someone else will enjoy this book and find it more to their tastes but for me, it was a waste of time.

A fun and sexy book. The Marquis and his cousin Robby have decided to switch idenities. The Marquis was certainly not looking for trouble but trouble was what he got! Jewelene was spirited, bright and very creative. A marvelous story.
