Book Description

When the always obedient Lady Iona is pressured into accepting a husband of her father's choosing, she seeks out the notorious rake, Lord Nathan Wynter, for his help in learning how to stand up for herself.

The more Nathan tries to protect Lady Iona from running head-long into disgrace, the more he admires her daring spirit and unpredictable antics. Instead of returning her to the obedient world to which she was raised, he encourages her blossoming passions. Such a move is surely going to lead them both to ruin.

But for love he is willing to risk everything.

Filled with emotion and torment, a steamy romance in which the hero and heroine can barely keep their hands off of each other, and a tender, heartbreaking realization and reconciliation, LADY IONA'S REBELLION meets every requirement that we deem necessary for it to be a Perfect 10. The writing is crisp, the tension so thick that you can cut it with a knife, and the cast so alive and vivacious, down to even the most secondary of characters. ~ A Perfect 10! ~ Romance Reviews Today

Lady Iona's Rebellion took me by storm. Not only is the writing grand, but the whole premise of the storyline is beautifully created. Iona is sassy and bright and I loved how she stands her ground for her independence. A hot-blooded Nathan and a desirable Iona, wow, this story sizzles with excitement, passion and the natural interference of families. Dorothy McFalls develops an intriguing read where characters linger long after the story ends. The well-sculptured secondary characters definitely put a spin on the story. This is one tantalizing read that is truly extraordinary in a most satisfying way. ~ 4 Cups! ~ Coffee Time Romance

LADY IONA'S REBELLION by Dorothy McFalls is an outrageous romp through Regency England with two wonderfully compelling characters as they find themselves dodging scandal on the way to discovering love. ~ 4 Ribbons! ~ Romance Junkies

The plot is fresh and adventuresome and each sister, brother, parent, friend and servant were a tribute to this wonderful story of confusion! The more Iona and Nathan experienced together, the more involved the events became! Each time Nathan did anything, it was perceived as scandalous; Lady Iona had the sympathy of the entire ton because, since she was known as the malleable child, it was never expected that she had anything to do with the outrage! This is a meticulous novel in which Ms. Dorothy McFalls showed her vast talent in the expansion of this book. I literally could not put it down. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who loves regency romance. This book will go well on your "keeper" list!
~ 5 Hearts! ~ The Romance Studio

Dorothy McFalls has written a fantastic romantic tale, one which is easy to read, engaging and entertaining. ... It is this attention to detail that pulled me completely into this story and made me forget I wasn't right there on the pages with Lady Iona and Lord Nathan. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I am eagerly awaiting any new book by Dorothy McFalls. Lady Iona's Rebellion is top rate on all fronts and I am sure whatever follows will be just as good. Well done! ~ 5 Angels! ~ Fallen Angel Reviews

Lady Iona is full of spit and fire and Lord Nathan is charmingly earnest. I kept on laughing throughout this story because of all the situations they get into. ... I haven't been this amused by a book in a long time. The pace is wonderful and you don't want to walk away from it...Lady Iona's Rebellion is a definite must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hero You'll Never Forget May 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Lord Nathan Wynter is a romance novel hero you'll never forget, and not simply because of his physical endowments. He is selfless, falsely accused (willingly so), and conflicted. The sexual tension between Nathan and Lady Iona is palpable. They struggle to come to terms with who they really are deep down, and what they mean to each other. The author keeps us guessing until the last page as she immerses us in the town of Bath in the Regency era with beautiful descriptions of costume and setting. It's one of those books you cannot put down.

2.0 out of 5 stars Frustration at Every Turn October 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
**warning*** this review has some spoilers

It's not just the characters who are frustrated throughout the book, it was myself as well.

I had high hopes for the story line, it was a novel approach and I enjoyed reading a romance from this time period set in Bath rather than in London. The main characters are engaging and the writing style is well done. But then the frustrations start.

First of all, Lady Iona is downright awful at anything approaching communication. She lets her family shut her up all the time, even when her very happiness depends on it. And then she constantly thinks about telling Nathan the truth about her father's plan to engage her to her cousin, but she never actually brings it up. It takes her forever to explain to him why she won't marry him. And then once he insists on the marriage, even after he's told her how impressed he is with her artwork and how he'll support her in the endeavor, she immediately starts assuming that he'll crush the happiness out of her and not let her do the things she wants to do. I have NO idea where she got that idea, and she never even asks him about it! I'm not really sure who she was rebelling against... it mostly seemed to be like she was rebelling against her assumptions rather than what people actually wanted/expected from her.

Not that Nathan's much better at communication, but at least he tries to talk to HER even if he doesn't clear up things with his family - not that they're listening to him anyway.

She's also more than a little bit selfish, but even once she realizes that she's behaving selfishly, she doesn't stop!

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun read June 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this story! Watching the way Iona blossoms under Nathan's tutelage is charming. It struck a cord with me because at one point in my life I too had to make the decision of whether to be a "Lady" or a "Woman". Like Iona I made the right choice so I understand how she felt. The way Ms McFall developed the characters was delightful. It was like seeing friends find themselves. I was glad to find out that Nathan was more than everyone thought.

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible sequel November 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the first book in this series and was applauding the author in my last review. Then the author must have fallen down the rabbit hole and started writing just like every other romance author because this book was terrible. First of all, it wasn't a romance. It was a mixture of never ending plot twists that weren't cohesive at all thrown together with a sex scene which was totally out of place. How many misunderstandings can one couple encounter? This author would have you believe weeks could go by where the two main characters couldn't have a two second conversation which would have solved everything. Usually this kind of thing doesn't bother me but this book DRAGGED. Very boring, very poorly written characters and a HUGE disappointment when the last book was so good. Sometimes you just can't make a sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite author! June 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I always thought romance novels were a silly waste of time, but I picked up a copy of "The Marriage List" by Dorothy McFalls, and now romances are a staple in my library! My "library" (ok, it's really a Kindle and a couple of bookshelves) includes every single one of Dorothy McFalls' books - she is my fave author. Along with period romances like Lady Iona, she also writes contemporary romances, paranormal romances, and mysteries (Dorothy St. James). I really loved the heroine Lady Iona, and throughout the book I found myself lost in her world. I thoroughly enjoyed the book - it really is a page turner and you won't want to put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Sequel March 13, 2013
By Becky
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book charts the romance of two secondary characters from a previous novel The Marriage List. It is a fabulous book. Despite the "sexy" moniker, this book is actually not smutty at all. There is 1 sex scene that was absolutely delicious and 1 other scene which did not involve sex but pretty much everything else. The erotic blended with the romance in a completely believable way. It was very well-written. The characters are excellent as well. I am intrigued by Lillian and would like to read her story. Lady Iona is an untouchable paragon, or so she seems. In reality her cold, perfect exterior hides a passionate inner self that longs to break free. After helping her friend in romance and meeting Lord Wynters, Iona's staid existence is no longer enough. A chance meeting in Bath with Lord Wynters gives Iona the perfect ploy to break out of her overly obedient and dutiful life: she will ask Lord Wynters to give her lessons on living the life of a rogue, taking her pleasures when and where she wants them and in the process she will learn how to emerge from her shell and take over control of her own life. Nathan, Lord Wynters, wants to put some polish on his blackened reputation in an effort to seal the life-long breach between him and the rest of his family. A respectable marriage should do the trick and who should he find staying in Bath, the lovely Lady Iona, a woman he had fallen in love with once and foolishly chased across the country only to be disappointed. Her reputation is more sterling than silver, she is gorgeous, and they were friends once; she's perfect. This story is more tragic than comic but it has its moments of levity. I greatly admire Iona's strength of character in the face of losing everything she held dear and of course, Nathan's unrequited love and passion and refusal to admit defeat - refreshing for a hero. An Excellent read. Very highly recommended for all Regency Romance lovers.

More About the Author

Award-winning author Dorothy McFalls was born in New York but raised in South Carolina. She makes her home on an artsy beach community in South Carolina with her husband, two dogs, and fluffy cat. Though writing has always been a passion for her, she pursued an undergraduate degree in Wildlife Biology and a graduate degree in Public Administration and Urban Planning. She then put her educational experience to use, having worked in all branches and all levels of government including local, regional, state, and federal. She even spent time during college working for a non-profit environmental watchdog organization.

Switching from government service and community planning to fiction writing wasn't as big of a change as some might think. Her government work was all about the stories of the people and the places where they live. As an urban planner, Dorothy loved telling the stories of the people she met. And from that, her desire to tell the stories that were so alive in her heart grew until she could not ignore it any longer. In 2001, she took a leap of faith and pursued her dream of writing fiction full-time.

Now an award-winning multi-published author, Dorothy enjoys writing in several different genres. Her works have been nominated for many awards including: Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award, Reviewers International Organization Award, National Reader's Choice Award, CataRomance Reviewers' Choice Award, and The Romance Reviews Today Perfect 10! Award. Reviewers have called her work: "amazing", "perfect", "filled with emotion", and "lined with danger."
