    1. Las historia de Alex, lord Colwick, el amigo del duque del libro anterior. Con una vida seria y ordenada motivada por los traumas generados por su libertino padre, no tiene la mejor idea de quedar prendado de madame DeBoucier, la dueña de un elegante burdel de Londres.Pero madame, Jocelyn, en realidad heredó el burdel de su madre y sólo lo administra. Pero al conocer al insistente Alex decide hacer un trato con él mientras dure la temporada. Pero la aparente paz se ve alterada por una serie [...]


    2. i am so mad at renee bernard. what exactly was the plot of this book? 1. OK, so i get that jocelyn inherits a "house of ill repute" from her motherbut then, the book fast forwards like years laterd she's well settled into the role. now, the male character (alex) and jocelyn have met before in previous bookbut the thing is, i read that book some time ago, and don't remember. there was hardly any background on the meeting.t even a flashback.2. you don't really get to know these characters. they se [...]


    3. This book was a soft porn after all and Alex was so cool at the lovemaking scene. Lol Keluar dari sekolah for ladies yg bergengsi, hanya untuk di hadapkan pada kenyataan mewarisi rumah pelacuran paling top di London sejak kematian ibu nya, Jocelyn menjadi germo di usia 18 tahun.9 tahun kemudian, setelah beberapa bulan tidak bertemu dengan Alex , Lord Colwick, mereka bertemu kembali karena obsesi Alex yang tidak bisa di bendung terhadap Jocelyn.Bertamu di Crimson Belle, Alex minta bertemu dengan [...]


    4. Let me preface this review by saying that something about Bernard keeps drawing me back in, despite the total preposterousness of her plots. Since reading her short story, "Mischief's Holiday", in Sabrina Jeffries'The School for Heiresses (which was hot), I've kept hoping her novels would be on that level.A Lady's Pleasure had good sex but the plot was bizarre, and Madame's Deception had a great concept and pretty good sex but nothing happened. I never thought I'd be complaining about too much s [...]


    5. I vaguely remember reading Bernard's first novel, A Lady's Pleasure, but I obviously didn't enjoy it since I'd have recalled some defining detail.I like heroines who aren't simpering virgin waifs, and have at least some initiative to take what she wants, and Jocelyn lacks none of that, despite being forcibly thrown into her dead mother's "trade". Alex Randall (who should perhaps be renamed Lord Randy) is determined to have the mysterious wench for himself, and willingly forks out the 10,000 poun [...]


    6. This was a sequel which couldn't be read as a stand-alone, and I hadn't read the predecessor. When we meet the hero, he has already met the heroine and conceived an inexplicable passion for her; there is no build-up in their relationship at all ((view spoiler)[he shows up to the brothel where she is the [virginal] madam - consistently spelled "madame" throughout - and essentially throws money at her to become his mistress; she has had the hots for him ever since their first meeting - again, took [...]


    7. Jocelyn vivía en un internado desde que era una niña, sumida en la inocencia y separada de su madre durante periodos de tiempo. Eso le llevó a desconocer la verdadera identidad de su madre, que era ni más ni menos que la dueña, la madame, de un exquisito burdel llamado "La Bella Carmesí". En cuanto su madre enferma gravemente, Jocelyn acude a su encuentro y ya en su lecho de muerte, le es confesada su identidad y cual será su misión de ahora en adelante: retomar su puesto, heredar el bur [...]


    8. The Crimson Belle is London’s most elite brothel that caters to most gentlemen, but always for a price. Madame DeBourcier runs her establishment with an iron fist. Most of the patrons don’t even know what Madame looks like. She is a secret to all, which even includes the women who work for her. But one London gentleman has had the honor of meeting with Madame personally. Alex Randal, Lord Colwick, came to Madame for help for a friend of his. And when he first met the owner of The Belle, he w [...]


    9. The concept of this book is delightful: a virgin as madam of a notorious bordello. I am happy to say that it lived up to its promise.Jocelyn was the young daughter of the madam of the Crimson Belle, sent away to boarding school so that she would not know what her mother did. Upon overhearing the mistress of her school discussing the fact that her mother was ill, Jocelyn made her way to London and found her mother on her deathbed. She promised to take over the Belle, and then we skip forward to t [...]


    10. Adepte depuis maintenant plusieurs années de la collection aventures et passions de chez J’ai Lu pour toutes leurs romances historiques qui savent faire fondre mon cœur de midinette! J’ai voulu testé leur dernière nouveauté, la collection aventures, passions et sensualité. Que de promesses!Sensualité est un terme qui lui va bien, tout comme rondeur et douceur. L’histoire sans être transcendante m’a vraiment fait passer un bon moment. Il m’a juste manqué un je-ne-sais-quoi pour [...]


    11. Jocelyn mendapatkan kabar kalau ibunya sedang sekarat. Dia segera pulang untuk menemui ibunya, dan benar saja ibunya memang sedang sakit. Sebelum meninggal, ibunya membuat Jocelyn berjanji untuk meneruskan usaha rumah bordir yang dikelolanya. Meski terkejut dengan usaha milik ibunya, Jocelyn tetap berjanji pada ibunya.9 tahun kemudian, Jocelyn kini lebih dikenal dengan nama Madame DeBourcier, pemilik usaha rumah bordir Crimson Belle. Di sana dia "mengasuh" beberapa wanita dan juga memberi bekal [...]


    12. CharactersAlex was strong and virile as a lord, if a bit weak at times (and they always are when it comes to professing their love to the heroine.) Jocelyn was fantastic as the mysterious, witty, voluptuous madame of the Crimson Belle. She was all business, even when it came to her feelings for Alex, Lord Colwick. Which lended to her mysterious nature even more. What I love most is her total lack of experience in the bedroom and how she uses actually booksmarts to educate other women in the bedr [...]


    13. It has a promising start: a virgin running a bordello and a man lusting over her without realizing (at first) how innocent her was, and a steamy agreeement between the two. but like another reviewer said: nothing much happens ( except the sex). Having read Renee Bernard, I should have anticipated this, but hey, the base plot is too good to be left out.Usually, I have quite some tolerance for loopholes in romance, especially regarding the setting (the bordello is like a 'candyland', yes) and hist [...]


    14. Just finished this one; Bernard is a new-to-me author. I'd call this slightly elevated soft porn more than romance. The ratio of explicit sex scenes to scenes without actual penetration is eyebrow-raisingly high, and trust me, I'm no prude about my reading material. So, just being extremely sexed-up wouldn't be a reason for me to knock it down to two stars; in fact, the erotica is fairly well done. The writing and dialog in general is entirely competent. However, the resolution of the conflict i [...]


    15. Renee Bernards writing makes it very easy to fall into the story and enjoy her books. The sex scenes in this book are steamy and the characters are great, yet something holds me back from "loving it".In the previous book the plot was a tad far fetched, but I had no trouble buying into that HEA. This story had a little more depth of emotion and the plot more believable, yet everything happened to fast for me. I didn't have a chance to settle in on the HEA, though I wanted both characters to get t [...]


    16. Cerita cinta yg lumayan menghiburlebih banyak hiburan di 'ranjang' sechheheheTapi, keseluruhan bagus, tidak seperti historical romance lainnyadimana sang hero biasa bingung dan mengingkari perasaan cintanya (atau lebih tepatnya tidak langsung mengakui perasannya, biasa lah bilang mau membujang seumur hidupnya). Alex langsung menyatakan cintanya dan mengajak nikah Jocelyn and get the hell with scandal. Walaupun sehari sebelumnya masih menolak ikut terlibat nama dg Madame DeBourcier gpp lah dimaaf [...]


    17. Jocelyn has lived a sheltered life at her school. When she finds out her mother is sick possibly dying she knows she needs to be there. She steals away during the night and goes to the address she found in her school files. She doesn't find a home but a brothel. She finds out her mother is the Madame of a house of ill repute!! On her mothers death bed she has Jocelyn swear she will take care of the girls at 17 she swears to her mother. 9 years later she is still taking care of the girls until so [...]


    18. It's official; I have been seduced by Renee Bernard! In usual lush detail, Ms. Bernard entices the reader into an affair so scandalous, only a compelling background mystery could draw our attention elsewhere. I loved and could totally relate to Jocelyn, the mysterious Madame DeBourcier, in both her innocence and her cool leadership. Her care for the girls of the brothel was adorable, and there was no character I didn't like. Though predictable, A Madame's Deception was sweet, funny, well-written [...]


    19. Well, I wouldn't call this book artbut it was an entertaining, hot, quick read. It actually made me cry a bit (poor Ramis!). My only complaints? Alex, man, you were a little too desperate. Yeah, I know you were in love, but damn, not exactly an alpha man when you chase after a woman. And crème? Really? It's semen, no matter how much you try to pretty it up.


    20. Not so hawt as the first book but still make the readers fan themselves,ㅋㅋㅋSayangnya misteri pembunuhan yg menyelingi cerita tidak diekspos terlalu banyak, pdhal bsa mnjadi nilai lebih selain crita cinta matinya Alex ke Jocelyn. Love their dialogue, kecintaan Jocelyn pada koleksi literaturnya, dan keterusterangan Alex yg dimabok cinta.


    21. Quite a silly plot, but well-written enough that it's easy to forgive. The characters are a little bit too likeable for me, but it is a nice love-story and I enjoyed reading it, although not as much as the first in the series.


    22. For the full review (including tons of references to Anchorman -- sorry), follow the link to That's What She Read.


    23. Jocelyn runs a rather benevolent brothel in 19th century London although she does not take "clients". She finally takes a lover, they solve a serial killing mystery and, of course, have a happy ending.




    24. I found myself in a historical mood one day and the blurb on this one caught my eye. I ended up skimming after the 30% mark just to get through it.


    25. hmpfh karena ngga kuat nungguin terjemahannya ni nekad baca ebuknya jg hehehe udah lama banget kelar, tp lupa update :P


    26. je crois que j'en attendais trop et qu'il était pas à la hauteur de mes esperances. sans être mauvais ce n'est pas le top non plus


    27. Bouuuh quelle déception ! Je n'ai jamais réussi à accrocher au caractère de l'héroïne.Quand à la fin elle est presque aussi mauvaise que celle du 1er tome


    28. I wont be a spoiler but this book was very well written and the characters very well developed I LOVED THIS BOOK and couldn't put it down. Very Romantic and Sensual!!! A must read!!!!
