Wow I loved this story. I loved the whole series. Caroline is an amazing character. She was strong, smart, funny, outspoken and forthright. And she loved Caldwell times 1000. Caroline's mother, father and sisters were a hoot. I love that they were so unconventional and open with everything. Such a nice change from the normal historical romance books.

Caldwell was awesome too. He was strong, handsome and sexy. He had a very interesting backstory. I don't want to give away spoilers so I won't just know it was good.

Caroline and Caldwell had some great chemistry together and some absolutely fantastic conversations. The dialogue in this book was superb! Loved every bit of it, and there was a lot of it. The sex scenes are very well romantically written, not erotica.

The story line and plot was great. If you have read any of the other School of Gallantry books this one does not disappoint. It is just as good. Love that School and Madam de Maitenon the teacher of the school was fantastic again. Loved her scenes. This is one of the most entertaining historical romance series I have read. There are several LOL moments.

If you haven't read\listened to this series and are HR fan, I highly recommend all of these books on audible or just to read. The writing and stories are truly brilliant.

As for the narration. Well it was fantastic. The author narrated her own book. Wow what a great job she did too. Everyone had their own voice. The men sounded like men. She read with emotion as called for ie, yelling, coughing, choking, whispering etc. It was great. Her reading voice was wonderful.

Full review is at my blog: Love Saves the World

Love Conquers All. Lady Caroline believes this maxim wholeheartedly but she's having a hard time convincing Ronan of its truth. Ronan has had a difficult life, a life so full of calamitous instances that has led him to believe that he is unworthy/undeserving of any sort of happiness or reward.

Ronan has had a sad upbringing -- and Delilah Marvelle touches on issues of abuse and neglect in a very poignant and sympathetic manner. But Ronan has an enduring spirit -- and part of it was nurtured because of his friendship with Caroline. He thought he was saving her from her loneliness and isolation and never thought that she was also saving him from his own problems.

I loved Caroline from the first moment. She's an unconventional heroine: plain speaking and forthright. (And she has an unusual hobby: she catalogs dirty words and hopes to make a dictionary. (loc 165) Even at 13, she had an incredible sense of confidence and intelligence and, during her conversations with Ronan, she was a wonderful mix of precocious and innocence.

When she finally came of age, she gained self-possession and maturity. But, despite everything that had happened to her (her parents' estrangement, her father's death, etc), she never lost her vibrance and optimism.

And I loved how she pursued Ronan. She was clear about her intentions but was never pushy. And she did it with a sense of humor. ^_^

"I'm getting married in June," she added.

His gaze jerked to hers. "To who?" It was almost a demand, not a question.

It gave her hope. She brought her hands together, trying to keep herself and her voice calm. "To you, of course.

Lady Caroline, a precocious 13 year old immediately falls in love with the 25-year-old Marquess of Caldwell, friend of her brother when he comes upon her in her family library. They begin an amazing conversation about life, about books, etc. that, despite the age gap, leads to a promise by him to teach her piquet every week in the afternoon. That she is the eldest, wealthy, daughter of a notoriously open-minded society family was reason enough for this reader to be pulled into their orbit and want to how it will play out. The penniless Marquess takes his family obligations quite seriously at great expense, literally and psychologically, to himself. Caroline’s upbeat optimism and admiration sustain him over years of correspondence while she is growing up. Oh, to make her debut and have a dance with him, FINALLY! But the Marquess had been damaged/corrupted as a boy of 11 by a female predator, and this horror stands in the way of his ability to admit to loving Caroline and commit to marriage. At 30 he still hasn’t been able to dig himself out of the hole of his failure to provide for those he cares for. But he’s saved by his uncle who not only proposes a wild solution to his psychological quandary, but also enrolls him in the ‘training’ that will help him heal himself. May this review tempt you to experience Delilah Marvelle, first hand.

Another fun installment in the School of Gallantry series. I really enjoyed the first two books, Mistress of Pleasure and Lord of Pleasure, so I'm pleased Delilah Marvelle is continuing the series!

As usual, the hero and heroine are intriguing and entertaining. Caroline is more forthright than Ronan, despite being his junior by over a decade, and I enjoyed seeing how her direct manner kept him both fascinated and off-kilter. Ronan has some very dark secrets, and as they unfold, we see how they've shaped him, for better or worse. He's not ready to love Caroline, and he almost loses her... which is where the School of Gallantry comes in.

My favorite part was Ronan's instruction at Madame de Maintenon's School of Gallantry. I've always loved her character, and once again, she doesn't disappoint. I was laughing, smiling, and nodding my head at her quirky brand of wisdom and quick-witted instruction.

One thing to keep in mind with this series is that the chronology can be a bit confusing--although this is the third book, the books happen more or less simultaneously. In some ways, you could consider this the first book, Lord of Pleasure the second, and Mistress of Pleasure the third. I gave up trying to keep the timeline straight and just went with it. When the story is this much fun, that's a minor quibble.
