    I m absolutely stunned WOW Historicals aren t my normal reading genre and I m very picky But I m so glad I ve picked Jenn LeBlanc I didn t wanted it to end The story, the pics, the characters, the feelings sighs Pics Yep, pics There s a normal version and there s the illustrated version I ve got the normal version when it was released, but didn t get to it right away So when Jenn announced the illustrated version will be released, I ve waited for that.Not only is Jenn an author, I m absolutely stunned WOW Historicals aren t my normal reading genre and I m very picky But I m so glad I ve picked Jenn LeBlanc I didn t wanted it to end The story, the pics, the characters, the feelings sighs Pics Yep, pics There s a normal version and there s the illustrated version I ve got the normal version when it was released, but didn t get to it right away So when Jenn announced the illustrated version will be released, I ve waited for that.Not only is Jenn an author, but also a photographer and I followed her for a while now on Twitter So I knew some of the pics and wasthan intrigued then to get the illustrated version And I m absolutely not disappointed The pics go along awesome with the story and make it so much hotter Because she has a great model for Warrick PThe story isn t just a historical romance, but also about time travelling It might not be your usual type, but it s worth looking at it Jenn got this into the story well and it s a huge part in the story For Lulu it s a great struggle to deal with this change in time Who have you been and who are you now Warrick s problem isn t this woman he s supposed to marry, but the things he NEED Also his family history has him in knots and tied up Thetime he spents with Lulu, theattached he gets to her and theconflicted he gets whether to share his secret or not.This story had me captivated from the beginning til the end So well done Jenn

    This book was a great read, but beware if you re not up for the long journeys of self discovery that both the characters take.

    They were just what the other needed.Lulu I gotta say frustrated the Hell out of me,while thankfully Grayson has patience for her I wanted to smack her Ok ,I can see that a lot of ppl going into BDSM for many,many reasons and one being a way to fulfill their many needs sexually and mentally and emotionally but also like a lot of things as a way to keep ppl at a distance,but what made me crazy was while Gray has his reasons that were clearly stated for us,Lulu s NEVER were.While he a They were just what the other needed.Lulu I gotta say frustrated the Hell out of me,while thankfully Grayson has patience for her I wanted to smack her Ok ,I can see that a lot of ppl going into BDSM for many,many reasons and one being a way to fulfill their many needs sexually and mentally and emotionally but also like a lot of things as a way to keep ppl at a distance,but what made me crazy was while Gray has his reasons that were clearly stated for us,Lulu s NEVER were.While he almost seemed to heal himself once she helped him embrace his true self, she seemed to flounder and push him away just as he was learning to be able to wantthis frustrating push pull started between them that with out a good reason as to why for her behavior, left me wanting to smack her muchly.Deep sigh. If she d had a history of abuse or trauma to work thru like Gray that would have been one thing but as is it felt like she was a pain just for the sake of the story, Ok adjusting to life there want easy per say but compared to soo many time travel heroines she had it d a m n good, especially between Gray and their money etc. I loved the story and I m thrilled to have found it I loved how well his needs and nature were handled and even though the thought of being submissive or submissive women rubs me the wrong way,I might beinto those type of books if the female subs in books were treated with the respect and dignity that Gray and any other male sub seems to be treated in any book like this that s worth reading just needed to say that just that books with male subs,the males are either treated with dignity and respect with a female who puts their needs and cares and treatment 1st treating it kinda like a sexual therapy , where it s alwaysabout the subs needs than just sexual dominance and or control on the subs part or the books have the males being humiliated and abused in ways that make you skin crawl and you d have put in jail if he was a dog or cat or something while most books where the female is the sub it feelsabout the male Dom.s needs to dominate and control with her needs be damned as long as her hormones kick and her panties get damp.Thanks for that storyPs I wanted to give 3 stars coz Lulu was soo damn annoying to me at times

    I m branching out a little in my reading to me erotica, when done well, is just REALLY steamy romances The material is a littlegraphic but it is still about relationships I ve read a few, here and there, with BDSM elements, but it isn t a sub genre or lifestyle that I m all that familiar with I m slowly getting the feel for the give and take in the D s relationship, which is very intriguing And The Duke and the Domina is evenso because up to this point everything I d read had I m branching out a little in my reading to me erotica, when done well, is just REALLY steamy romances The material is a littlegraphic but it is still about relationships I ve read a few, here and there, with BDSM elements, but it isn t a sub genre or lifestyle that I m all that familiar with I m slowly getting the feel for the give and take in the D s relationship, which is very intriguing And The Duke and the Domina is evenso because up to this point everything I d read had had a male Dom This time, though, the roles are reversed which makes it all theinteresting Throw in the fact that it is a historical romance and it becomes evencomplicated There are certain appearances that are expected in society and roles that are to be strictly adhered to Grayson has certain tendencies, which are out of this norm, making him ashamed and solitary He has very few people close to him and keeps many, many secrets But when a mysterious woman falls into his lap, his world is turned upside down I ve always loved the fish out of water idea of a woman traveling back in time As an avid reader of love stories populated by lords and ladies, I can t imagine what it would be like to throw a modern woman into that world What she has to give up and what expectations she would have to meet Having her be a Domina definitely makes it evencomplicated for those same reasons that Grayson s preference are so very dangerous But when the two are thrown together it could be the answer if only they can learn to open up their hearts and trust the other with the truth To that end, I totally get Grayson s reluctance especially because of the damage it could do to him, those he calls his and even to his very life But I m not totally sure I understand her issues She isn t comfortable revealing herself to Grayson but I never got all that good an understanding why Maybe I missed something but it wasn t clear to me That didn t stop me from enjoying the book though I eagerly flipped pages as the two danced around each other and finally gave love a chance Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review

    As you can see above there are two full books in this series Both have illustrated versions and i have to say it is worth reading the illustrated versions but if that s not your think you can buy it without them as well In The Duke and the Domina we see a few familiar characters from previous books I find a lot of comfort in that Grayson was introduced in book one and i loved him but there was a bit of mystery around him Lulu is his fate and she is a 21st century girl who wakes up with a he As you can see above there are two full books in this series Both have illustrated versions and i have to say it is worth reading the illustrated versions but if that s not your think you can buy it without them as well In The Duke and the Domina we see a few familiar characters from previous books I find a lot of comfort in that Grayson was introduced in book one and i loved him but there was a bit of mystery around him Lulu is his fate and she is a 21st century girl who wakes up with a headache in a new world than the the one she has always known This is partly a time travel book in that Lulu travels back to the 1800 s London from current day in the United States She wakes up in the arms of Grayson Locke Danforth or The Warrick What i liked about this book is the chance to see characters from the previous book There were many i grew to love Grayson being one of them He finds himself a solitary person by choice He lets his friends and cousins in as much as he can but none are really close He thinks he s different and he is from what is the norm of the time When Lulu comes into his life there is something about her that calls to him yet scares him She will either be everything he needs or the end of him It s kind of a toss up for a while Each has personal issues they have to deal with if they want to find happiness and love I really enjoyed their journey getting there Jenn LeBlanc is a excellent photographer and you can see her work on many book covers including her own She s gone one step further with her books and has illustrated them through her own pictures It s just onepersonal touch added to a really great story If you are a fan of Victorian romance and don t mind a erotic twist or two this is a great series I have found myself deep into these books where it s easy to lose yourself Time well spent

    Not really sure about this one I have read tons of BDSM before, but the sadomasochistic parts of BDSM don t really push my buttons I don t really get off on pain and this book is heavy on the SM given the nature of the hero With that said, this is not a warm and fluffy story, but I knew that by the book s description.I had a few issues with this book It was a time travel story, which I typically like, but this one just didn t sit right At times, when the heroine is narrating I felt like it Not really sure about this one I have read tons of BDSM before, but the sadomasochistic parts of BDSM don t really push my buttons I don t really get off on pain and this book is heavy on the SM given the nature of the hero With that said, this is not a warm and fluffy story, but I knew that by the book s description.I had a few issues with this book It was a time travel story, which I typically like, but this one just didn t sit right At times, when the heroine is narrating I felt like it was really the author talking rather than the character I can t really put my finger on it, but the heroine seemed to be used as the mouthpiece of the author to make some type of political statements about women s rights, and racial issues in America While these incidents were rather small and seemingly insignificant, they totally took me out of the storyline, and this didn t seat right with me Not a huge part of the story, but nevertheless a small detraction for me Some parts were also a little weak Lulu, our heroine, is transported back in time and into the body of someone else She didn t really have a whole freak out about this that I would have expected She is in someone else s freaking body and this was portrayed to bit a small thing Weird And can we just talk about how long it took for them to actually get it on It was like 68% Kindle marked I mean they fooled around and all, but still it took forever for that slap and then let s get it on, to happen.In the end, it wasn t the worst I ve read, but it wasn t my favorite either If you are really into BDSM and in particular the SM you will probably like this book
