Book Description

Another Kellington brother finds love in the fourth book of Maureen Driscoll’s Regency romance series.

When Hal Kellington sees a respectable reform worker with the stockings of a courtesan, he’s intrigued. When his friend wagers he cannot kiss the chit, he’s challenged. And when he gets to know the spirited American, he realizes the stakes are higher than he could possibly imagine.

Since arriving in England to live with her uncle and aunt, Melanie Sutton has been working to help London prostitutes start new lives in America. When they begin disappearing, she accepts the help of a notorious rake to track them down. But she soon discovers that resisting temptation is much easier preached than practiced.

NEVER RUN FROM LOVE contains explicit language and adult situations. The earlier books in the series were NEVER WAGER AGAINST LOVE (Book 3), NEVER MISS A CHANCE (Book 2) and NEVER A MISTRESS, NO LONGER A MAID (Book 1), which USA TODAY’S HAPPY EVER AFTER blog called “enjoyable, suspenseful and satisfying.”

5.0 out of 5 stars ..another Kellington bites the dust! AWESOME! October 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Awhile back I was approached by Maureen Driscoll to read her first self-published Historical regency novel, and as most of you know by now, I have great admiration for self-published authors [which is not to say that any of the other authors are lacking in my admiration], so I jumped at a chance to do it.

Her first book, `Never a Mistress, No Longer a Maid' was the one that totally hooked me on the Kellington family and after reading the subsequent `Never Miss a Chance' [the second Kellington book], and `Never Wager against Love' [the third one], I wondered what she had in store for Hal, the youngest brother. Well, I wonder no more!

Hal is one of those rake's that's more a scoundrel who hides his pain and heartbreak behind a façade of the charmers smile, a healthy sexual appetite and a copious amount of drink, not necessarily in that order. His family loves him and every one of them would do anything to help him, yet they do realize that Hal himself would have to want their help in order for his life to take another turn.

None of them, including Hal himself, would even dream about that `the turn' would walk into his life by way of a very smart, witty and most forward thinking young woman by the name of Melanie Sutton.

Mel was orphaned at ten and went to live with her maternal aunt, but when that aunt passed away nine years later, her uncle, the Earl of Heffner and his wife were happy to take her in and introduce her to English Society. Mel, a free thinking American and Quaker educated, wasn't so much impressed with the ton and she was restless until she met a reformer by the name of Mrs. Seton. This woman, albeit a bit harsh and at times full of herself, gave our heroine some purpose in life and made her life worthwhile.

4.0 out of 5 stars A really fun read February 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This 4th installment in the Kellington series was really fun to read. There was passion, intrigue, action, and scandal. The only thing that bothered me was Mel's reluctance to be with Harry "Hal". It's understandable up to a point because he does have some big changes to make in his life in regards to drinking, gambling, and " whoring", so he really isn't much of a catch in the beginning. It's later in the book when she basically tossed him out the door after letting him, ummmm, can't think of a tactful way to say that. Heavy petting? Anyway, she encourages and enjoys it, and then tosses him out. Sure, she's shocked at what happened but then she starts seriously considering marrying her friend from America! So, I spent a few chapters wanting to smack her. But, she changed her attitude, and he started thinking of them more seriously and cleaned up his act. After that, the story became really enjoyable again, and I liked seeing them work together for their cause. There ended up being two villains which surprised me a little. I had suspected both of them, but wrongly assumed there was only one guy behind all the trouble. I like surprises, though, so that was good. Overall, it's one of the better ones in the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Never Run From Love January 17, 2014
By Lily
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A little more interesting than Driscoll's Never Deny Your Heart. This book is about another Kellington, Lord Henry, Hal, and an American, Melanie Sutton. Hal is the bad boy of the family, fornicator, wild one and on the receiving end of his older brother's rebuke. Hal meets Melanie when he spots her in a group of women outside a gaming establishment; they are protesting liquor and it's evils. Melanie has more interest in trying to convince prostitutes to leave their way of livelihood and travel to America for a new start in life. Hal is determined to have Melanie, to the point of joining the ladies in their protest groups. This book has explicitly written sexual scenes and language. There are a few twists to the story that kept me pondering who the bad guy was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book May 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once again this book in the series is equally as good as the rest except for the explicit sex words used. I simply do not care for the language and do not think they add a thing to the story. In fact, they distract from an excellent book.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's OK September 5, 2013
By mbr
Format:Kindle Edition
I am enjoying the Kellington series, although I did not like Arthur's story; I found it boring. Hal's story had a little better story line, but the sexual encounters were too bizarre for my tastes. I hope Liam's story is better. So far, my favorite is Lizzie's story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this series and this author February 28, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Love this series and this author. Laugh out loud funny, lots of chuckles and then there's the stuff that makes you cry. Wonderful writing; I couldn't stop until I had read all books in both series (nine so far) - now I have to get back to reality until the next one in the "Never" series comes out. Thank you, Maureen Driscoll, for sharing your gift. This is the same review you’ll see from me for all of her books.
