      *4.5 stars*If you are a historical romance lover and you aren't reading Meredith Duran you are missing out on something VERY special.Lady Be Good is another stellar book in the very good Rules for the Reckless series. No, you don't have to read the series in order (I bounced around), but you'll want to buy up the whole series after just one book. They are that good. I read a lot of romance, and a lot of M/F historical romance, and I'm a jaded, picky reader. What Meredith Duran does better than m [...]

      I love Ms. Duran's writing and her "unusual" heroines! This book was no exception.

      This is my first Meredith Duran book and I enjoyed the intriguing story, intelligent writing, fascinating characters and sensual love story.This is book 3 in the series but can easily be read as a standalone.I love Lily’s character. She’s intelligent, tenacious, ambitious and courageous. We see it in her determination to fulfil her sister’s dream and make a better life for herself; in the hard-work and self-discipline needed to become a perfect lady; in her desire to earn an honest living [...]

      That is how a historical romance should be written. One of the best books I've read in this genre. The characters are real and mature. The heroine is not your typical lady. She is from a rather scandalous background and I loved every minute in Lilah's shoes. I must admit: I haven't sympathized to any heroine so much for a long time. She is brilliant, intelligent, she is strong - a survive, she is funny - oh yes, I couldn't stop laughing while reading this book. She is no damsel in distress and c [...]

      This is third in a series. By all means, read the others. Certainly read them before this one, though none of those characters seem to matter in this book, really. I'd reconsider continuing on to this one, though, as the story relies on a lot of dumb conveniences and the plot only works if you don't care about things like, well, plot.I struggled through for nearly three quarters of the book making excuses for continuing as I went along. The thing is, the main plot is driven by an idiocy that's a [...]

    6. Dabney on said:

      This is a hard book for me to rate. I love Ms. Duran's writing and the complexity of her characters. And yet, I kept putting down this book and not feeling an urge to snatch it up again. The leads remained at a remove for me. I liked them but didn't feel them--unlike many of Ms. Duran's other heroes and heroines. I sense I may come back and raise this rating to four stars but now, when the book is in my very recent past, I'm underwhelmed.

    7. Lyuda on said:

      Hmmm. Definitely not my favorite by the author. The romance between a dashing war hero and a former thief turned action house hostess was not that interesting for me. I found myself intrigued more by the secondary characters-the main characters of the next book in the series and it's never a good sign!

    8. Noura on said:

      A heroine who was a pro thief who wants to lead a normal life as a career girl. A war hero hell-bent in getting his revenge. We are talking about two bad-asses who came together and eventually fall for each other - Victorian style. I love me a smart and sassy heroine - not the type who is annoyingly sarcastic and abrasive but the kind who knows what she wants, knows how to get it and has mad skills. Lilah Marshall used to be a pro thief thanks to the training she got from her uncle (who happens [...]

      Lady Be Good: Rules for the Reckless 3 by Meredith DuranComing in the middle of a series one would think that either you missed part of the story, or that you would not have fresh eyes of the author, in this book you would be wrong. Lady Be Good is a standalone book, and it draws the reader into the high society and political intrigue of the English aristocracy. Lilah Marshall is the WhiteCastle London equivalent of the girl from the wrong side of the tracks. Her father’s criminal enterprises [...]

    10. Cecilia on said:

      I enjoyed this book generally, but the premise of a criminal who's trying to make something of her life by working as a "hostess" in an auction company marrying a viscount who's just dispatched a crazed enemy I don't know. I just can't quite suspend my disbelief. I do still want to read the next book, though.

    11. Jan130 on said:

      3.5 to 4 stars for this enjoyable read. I liked both H and h. Christian is a brave, honourable war hero, although like any person who has experienced war, he is deeply affected by the experience. He doesn't see himself as a hero, just someone who did what he had to do. But now a man from his past, a bitter old Russian who has a grudge against Christian from the war, has followed him to England. He is out to destroy Christian and everyone he loves. Lilah, or Lily, is from a different world than C [...]

    12. Issa on said:

      The last book I read from this author was good but I should have remembered that was an anomaly. I give the story two stars and both of those belong to Lilith. She was a fantastic character. Clever, strong, bad ass with a knife. But she was plopped into a nonsensical plot with jerk of a love interest she had no chemistry with. It says something when you spend much of the book hoping Lilith and Catherine would run into the sunset together.

    13. Ilze on said:

      I have to agree with Dabney's review at - the book had its moments, but I never really felt emotionally connected with the main characters. The psychotic Russian and the random acts of violence, some of which seemed utterly pointless (the random shot in the woods at the country estate, the trap-pit in the same woods) didn't interest me in the least, unfortunately.

    14. Melissa on said:

      I put off reading this for a long time because I kept hearing how bad it was and how subpar compared to other books by Meredith Duran, but I liked it. I should've read it sooner! It's not my favorite of her novels, but it kept me entertained the whole time. Even the least of Meredith Duran's books is superior to most of what's out there these days. A solid 3.8, I'd say. ;)

    15. Katie(babs) on said:

      When it comes to a Meredith Duran novel, you know you're getting near perfection. Every words Meredith writes is golden, and pure poetry. So is the case with Lady Be Good. The story might feel familiar, but the way it's presented is new and fresh, and very lyrical. Case in point is one of my favorite segments from this novel:"Touch her, indeed. One of her cheeks bore a smudge. He very much wished to remove it for her. With his tongue."That small excerpt, like many more in this novel, made me swo [...]

      Lily/Lilah Monroe/Marshall has been tasked with Stealing A Thing. Except she gets caught by Kit Stratton, aka Viscount Palmer, who needs A SPY ON THE INSIDE while he attempts to find the crazy Russian traitor who is after him. SPARKS FLY. 1. This was the story of two hardened, competent people falling into feelings with one another. However, some of the competency does seem to flake off a bit once they're ~lusting which is probably realistic because boners are distracting or whatever, but. I wan [...]

    17. Ashley on said:

      Why did it have to end so cornily, Meredith Duran?? In my head the publisher made her slap on the cheesetastic final lines in this book. Look, this isn't even close to being one of Meredith Duran’s best novels. In fact, it’s one of her worst, but even her so-so novels like this are better than most of what’s out there. I really love Duran’s prose and it elevated a rather tired plot to something I found worth reading. I’m thinking this book was sort of the perfunctory prequel to the nex [...]

    18. Kat on said:

      Not quite as good as the first two, but enjoyable nonetheless. I adored Lily, and the chemistry with Kit was steamy. I just found the ending a bit anti-climatic. Catherine was a total bitch, but became likeable near the end. I can't wait to read about Uncle Nick in the next book!

    19. Kara-karina on said:

      God, I loved this book so much! I haven't read a historical for awhile, and to stumble on such little gem was everything.Why read this one? you'd ask.The heroine is a total badass who does not take mansplaining kindly. A former thief determined to climb out of the gutter and onto the social ladder, Lilah Marshall works as a hostess in an auction house where she manipulates guests with her refined accent, easy smiles and witty flirtations. Her former life left her with mad skills, however. Her un [...]

    20. Jultri on said:

      This book didn't work for me. I liked the heroine, who was plucky, tough, independent and not scared of pursuing her dreams of a better existence for herself. The hero, I had issues with. He used her in the beginning without remorse. Even when he saw that she was forced to steal the letters out of fear for her safety, he felt no qualm utilising her fear to achieve her submission to his blackmailing. He treated and spoke to her disrespectfully at times, like she was a common whore. Even when he a [...]

      Lady Be Good by Meredith Duran is a 2015 Pocket Books publication. I was provided a copy of this book as an XOXpert- The official street team of XOXO After Dark. How is it that I have not read anything by this author previously? Well, now that she is on my radar, I will be adding more of her books to my TBR list. Lilah comes from a family of thieves, but it is her greatest wish to live a decent, honest life. That goal means ever so much more to her now, since she wishes to honor her sister's mem [...]

    22. ChrisCarroll on said:

      I love a great romance, especially when it includes a strong willed woman. The author has created a wonderful heroine in this new book that made this a pleasure to read. Lilah is street smart but working on being cultured too. Christian is a hero that everyone wants to love and he has his eye on Lilah in more ways than one. Working together becomes a challenge for both of them and the result is a bit of a witty read with some fun scenes added in for a well rounded story.The beginning of this boo [...]

      I really needed this book in my life. It was just so much fun to read! I never get tired of strong women in my historicals, and the men forced to tame them. I love watching a woman bend society's rules, and this book gave me not one, but two strong women! Lily is such a good heroine, strong-willed and jaded but with just enough innocence to make her seduction fun. Kit, the arrogant yet troubled war hero, was a bit on the rakish side. I loved it! He had no qualms about flirting with her, or takin [...]

    24. Jo on said:

      This was almost a DNF for me after the first few chapters. I'm glad I stuck with it since it got better towards the end, but if I hadn't, I wouldn't have missed much. Simply put, I hated the hero. He was selfish, spoiled, self-pitying, manipulative and stupid; and he didn't get better by the end of the book. I love anti-heroes but their stories only work for me when I can see why they do what they do and why the heroine loves them - they don't need to be redeemed by the end but some character gr [...]

    25. Andree on said:

      Oh, Meredith Duran, why must you always get so close? Character-work is strong, and was super into it for the first two thirds, but always goes just a step to far. In the end this was saved by the ladies. Loved the friendship between Catherine and Lily. Super solid. Easily the best part of this book.I mean, this does go super-dramatic (of course it does). And it is not helped by (view spoiler)[an injury to a dominant hand, which is apparently a bit of a deal-breaker for me? (hide spoiler)] But m [...]

      That was nice! Fun and light-hearted. Seems to be a theme in this series. I really like how Duran writes her heroines.

      4,5 - E accidenti, sì e sì! Dopo un primo libro della saga Rules for the Reckless (per me) deludente, un secondo volume davvero sfavillante, è arrivato questo terzo episodio spettacoloso. Una trama complicata, non scontata, tanto che non capivo dove voleva arrivare il suo sviluppo. Personaggi che mutano di continuo, ora positivi, ora pieni d’ombre, e poi di nuovo al centro delle nostre simpatie.Lilah-Lily, l’aspirante gentildonna autodidatta, è senza dubbio un’eroina nuova e diversa: n [...]
