More About the Author

First things first: a huge thank you to Jennifer Omner at ALLpublications.com for the book covers and designs. An equally huge thank you to JBC Images at JBCimages.com for the author photo.

Maureen Driscoll is an Emmy-nominated writer-producer in Los Angeles whose credits include "The Dish" on the Style Network, "Jimmy Kimmel Live," and Nickelodeon's "BrainSurge." She was also a recipient of a Walt Disney Studios screenwriting fellowship, where she wrote a romantic comedy based on her rather painful divorce. The script didn't make it to the big screen, but it did teach her a few things about happily ever after.

Before moving to Hollywood, Maureen spent nearly a decade working on Capitol Hill. Her novel DATING GEORGE CLOONEY is a political satire inspired by her time there.

ALWAYS BELIEVE IN LOVE is the fourth book in the Emerson series of Regency romances. The first was ALWAYS COME HOME, followed by ALWAYS TRUE TO HER and ALWAYS HAVE HOPE. They follow the Kellington series: NEVER A MISTRESS, NO LONGER A MAID; NEVER MISS A CHANCE; NEVER WAGER AGAINST LOVE; NEVER RUN FROM LOVE; NEVER DENY YOUR HEART and NEVER TURN AWAY.

Maureen is currently working on Rose's story, ALWAYS FOREVER, the next book in the Emerson series.

She loves hearing from her readers on Facebook at Maureen Driscoll Author, Twitter, Goodreads and MaureenDriscollRomance.Wordpress.com.

She is very, very appreciative of her readers and thanks people for taking the Kellingtons and Emersons to heart.

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!

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.

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.

As other reviewers, I so enjoyed the first book. This one is so far-fetched. The author spent too much time introducing new characters for the following books in the series and not enough time developing this book's storyline.

Spoiler! This book was horrible. The characters are quite ridiculous. Lizzie, the strong minded maiden, who knows nothing about sex, is more than willing to compromise herself with her fiancee in his bedroom (ok...), on her brother's desk with her brother outside of the room (really?), and finally does on his private lake shore (right...). Then she breaks the engagement out of concern for his standing in the house of Lords over some treatises that she has written. All of the relationships in the book were solely based on sex and lust and never deepened to anything else. Ya know, since relationships based on sex and nice figures will last a lifetime. The constant tripe about his cock being so hard and how he would jerk off 3 times in one night just thinking about her became dull. There were making of a pretty good story here but the shallowness of everybody and and overemphasis on trivial sex just made me what it to be done already. I still would have willing to give it 3 stars because it was almost a good story and did have a lot of sex but the ending killed it. Lizzie was going to write a treatise to publish in the paper under her real name about different types of contraception. Ugh, really? From the woman who just learned what sex was because nobody would say what it was since this was 18teens and that wasn't talked about in polite society.

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...
