Need You for Keeps
Dodging a sheriff's deputy in a small town isn't that easy—especially when he's as jaw-droppingly gorgeous as Jonah Baudouin. Animal rescuer Shay Michaels struggles in vain but it will not do. See what else the author, Marina Adair, has to offer

Book Description

A duke’s daughter isn’t supposed to court scandal in Regency England. She isn’t supposed to involve herself in controversial causes. And she most especially isn’t supposed to expect love in a ton marriage. But Lady Elizabeth isn’t just any duke’s daughter. She’s a Kellington. And her expectations are somewhat higher than most people’s.

Marcus Redmond, the Marquess of Riverton, has been in love with his best friend’s sister for years. When Lizzie’s reputation is damaged, he offers her marriage, hoping she will come to care for him eventually. But can the upright, staid Riverton make a love match with the impulsive, passionate Lizzie – especially when there are those who are determined to come between them?

NEVER MISS A CHANCE is a sizzling romance with a touch of humor. It contains adult situations and sexually explicit language. It’s the second book in the Kellington series about the Duke of Lynwood and his four siblings. The series started with NEVER A MISTRESS, NO LONGER A MAID.

1.0 out of 5 stars A good start ends in a bad sequel...... December 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the first book in the Kellington series. However, the second book was pretty horrible. From a very forgettable cast of characters to a lackluster romance I wasn't feeling the book. Top it off with a overabundance of the word "cock" and you will be struggling to stay interested in this poorly told sordid tale. To top it off the author has the characters do things that are not humanly possible such as the two main characters standing, kissing, but Riverton is somehow able to touch Lizza's ankle and calf while doing it. Um, not unless he has inspector gadget arms. Really poorly written. The author's bedroom scenes make me question if the author has any experience in a bedroom. I will not be reading further into the series. I had to force myself to finish this book and only to be an honest and fair reviewer. Reader be warned!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ms. Driscoll knows how to write. October 21, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Rated 4 out of 5 White Roses.

Lady Elizabeth Kellington has no idea what kind of trouble she just got herself into. She wrote Toward the Enlightenment of England: A Treatise for the Reformation of Property Rights, the Rights of Women in Marriage and Universal Suffrage and not only had it published but also had her named down as the author. She assumed that she would be fine. As a woman in her enviable position, the only daughter of the late Duke of Lynwood and sister to the current one, she figured there would be no harm in dipping a toe in politics and lambasting society for its failure to do right by women. Sure, the ton will be scandalized, but they'll get over it after a short period of time... yes, they will get over it. Right?

Marcus Redmond, Marquess of Riverton, also the Duke of Lynwood's best friend has always known that Lizzie was off-limits to him even though it hasn't stopped him from loving her in silence and admiring her from afar. But when the furor over her treatise spread like wild fire amongst the ton, her family came to the conclusion that a marriage for her would be best to repair any damage to her reputation. Marcus did his best in trying to treat Lizzie like a sister as well as assist her in finding a decent enough gentleman who was worthy to be called her husband. But try as he might, Lizzie is most definitely not his sister and the only gentleman he can see being with woman like Lizzie is... well... him. Now if he can just get her to agree then everything would just be great.


If I were to judge this book in comparison to the first one, then I would say that Never Miss A Chance didn't have the same resonance as Never A Mistress, No Longer A Maid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful story! September 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Maureen did it again! I loved Never Miss a Chance as much as I did Never a Mistress, No Longer a Maid (Book 1). I already loved the Kellington siblings from the first book and this one just cemented that love. All the characters are so well written, the dialogue is superb. One of the most important things for me in a story is witty, believable dialogue and the Kellington's interactions can't get any better. The story has good conflicts. Even the villains are likable! Sizzling love scenes from the main characters and others (which was a good surprise). And all through the book we get a little of what is coming for the next books.

All in all a wonderful book! And I can't wait for the next one! The Kellingtons are one of the best characters I've read in the last few years.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very nice follow up October 7, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not going to go into incredible detail here, but I will say that this book was a delightful follow up to the first Kellington story.

The writing moves along nicely, the characters are well developed and the story is quite enjoyable. I read primarily historical romance, and would rate this up there with Alissa Johnson, Julia Quinn and Christina Dodd...

**no spoilers**

Marcus loves Lizzie, but she is off limits as the sister of his best friend... After virtually ruining her reputation with her scandalous writings about freedom for women (not giving anything away that isn't in the first chapter here...) Lizzie has few options open... except marriage to someone eminently respectable and above reproach.

Add to the mix a rather obnoxious parent and sisters, and some underhanded manipulation and you have a rather bumpy road to love... But love it is...

The dialogue is witty and the love story is well conceived. I am really looking forward to the next Kellington sibling's story...

5.0 out of 5 stars The sensuality of this one is OFF the charts! September 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you haven't read the first book "Never a Mistress, No Longer a Maid", it's okay, this one stands on its own, BUT I think you should for the simple reason that you'll understand the family dynamic so much better. The author has created such an interesting and fun family that it truly feels like I could hang out with them, even the Duke, whose story I'm looking forward to.

Now, let me tell you why I liked this book even more then the first: The sensuality of this one is OFF the charts! That's the first thing I noticed upon finishing it and I was so happy about it.

Lady Elizabeth Kellington is the one and only sister in this family and her brothers adore her, as long as she stays out of politics! This bluestocking could never do that, and this is where our heroine encounters a world of trouble, not just with her family in particular, but with society in general. After a copy of her `Toward the Enlightenment of England: A Treatise for the Reformation of Property Rights, the Right of Women in Marriage and Universal Suffrage' (wow, that was a mouthful) is published under her REAL name, Lizzie is surprised to find herself on the outs with most of the society and even with the group that she founded. She is stunned by their reaction and what's worse, all the gentlemen that might have been her suitors, now are shunning her, and the ones that would not suit (rakes, gamblers and reprobates) are knocking on her door, thinking her a fair game.

Marcus Redmond, Marquess of Riverton is Duke of Lynwood's best friend and a man who has loved Lizzie a long time. Not that he would ever admit to it. Loving and fantasizing about ones best friend's sister is not what one does, but there it is. He just can't help think her a Goddess, albeit one with some radical ideas.

Started out OK, but tried to cram too much plot at the end without true character development or conversation. Worked more like a rough draft for what could have been a good romp. Read more
