Hannah is a fabulous heroine whose naiveté and innocence about sex are realistic given the time period and her experience with her first husband. Her sexual explorations with Leo are delightfully steamy and erotic. Ms. Ross beautifully expresses Hannah's surprise and wonderment at her awakening sexuality. Despite her growing feelings for Leo, Hannah does not romanticize their encounters and she readily accepts there is no future for them besides a sexual liaison.
Leo is a charming and lovable rogue. As the second son, he is carefree, cheerful and to all appearances, leading a frivolous life. But there is a quite a bit of depth and substance lurking beneath his wastrel facade. He is endlessly patient with Hannah's inexperience and his lessons in lovemaking are very sensual.
Improper Relations by Juliana Ross is a richly detailed historical novella that is written in first person from Hannah's point of view. The shared history between Leo and Hannah sets the foundation for their newfound relationship and lends credibility to their romance. The plot is realistic and in keeping with the time period.
Improper Relations is an engaging novella that is quite enjoyable. It is the perfect book for fans of Historical romances who enjoy light, angst free stories that are fast paced and sinfully steamy.
Review copy obtained from publisher through NetGalley.
Even though I liked Hannah a lot and felt her connection to Leo, I almost stopped reading this book after the first chapter. Why? It had all of the things that annoy me about historical romances in it:
The heroine not knowing anything about sex & the hero instructing her on it, he "Oh, are you in pain? How can I help you" line and the I'm so plain and now I feel beautiful because of what happened.
Once it got past all of that though I really started liking Leo and Hannah much better. It had one of my favorite story lines in it (which I can't say what it is without spoiling the story) and I loved the ending. Even though Improper Relations was just 8 chapters long, it was perfect fit for me on a day where I wanted something hot and steamy to read but didn't want to take all week to read. I have a feeling that Juliana Ross is an author to watch.
Juliana really knows how to pen a scorcher of a read. The tone of the novel really works here in the first person POV of Hannah, a woman caught in a oppressive position because she has to rely on the goodness of her deceased husband's relations in order to survive. One wrong move on her part could be disastrous for her. When she and Leo being their affair, she's putting a great deal on the line, but the results are well worth it. These two aren't just using one another for pleasure; they're building an intense connection. Leo may come across as a cad and rogue, but what you see isn't necessarily what you get.
The ending seems a bit rushed. I wanted to read more between these two regarding the path to their HEA that ends up being very emotional after all they have done together.
Juliana Ross is a new historical romance author to keep your eye on. The love scenes in Improper Relations are very titillating and erotic, and perfect for those readers who want a little more naughty in their reading material.
Leo and Hannah do have a unique relationship. More so because even though Hannah is older than Leo is (I'm very curious as to how many years but the book never says). Leo has more experience then Hannah when it comes to the ways of the world. Nevertheless, I enjoyed reading about them together as they made a good couple.
I recommend this novel to anyone who likes historical erotic romances! It's definitely a sweet read that will leave you hot under the collar. Plus, I loved how the epilogue wrapped everything up so nicely!

I will be honest: I cannot tolerate a poorly written romance novel. If the writing is trite, the characters stock and the sentences overly-simple I won't make it past the first... Read morePublished 17 months ago by kasey
