    1. 4 1/2 starsWOW! What an unexpected surprise A Breach of Promise turned out to be. I was captivated, riveted, and charmed by this superbly written short story. I'm in awe of Ms. Vane's ability to write a novella that is not only historically detailed, engaging, and cleverly contrived, but simultaneously sweeps the reader into a world full of richly developed characters, and terrific, witty dialogue.The cast of characters in this short story were simply amazing for a Novella. I can honestly sa [...]

    5. 4 ½ stars – Erotic Georgian/Historical Romance NovellaLydia Trent is a romantic young lady of seventeen looking forward to finally celebrating the announcement of a formal betrothal to the subject of her girlhood infatuation, Marcus, Lord Russell. Although Marcus recognizes his duty to play the biddable fiancé, he’s less than enthusiastic and cynical about being forced into an attachment to a naïve girl barely out of the schoolroom. After getting a bit tipsy and giving Lydia her first gli [...]


    6. Dear kiddies…I mean authors…lesson number one!SEX IS NOT LOVE!LUST IS NOT LOVE!OBSESSION IS NOT LOVE!Did my capitol letters get trough to you?Sadly, I doubt it.More and more am I coming across plots where the hero and heroine feel obsession and lust at best.The characters in this story were the prototype for a future failed relationship. The only thing keeping them together is a love for politics and fucking (excuse me for being un-lady-like here).The epilogue that took place one year later [...]


    7. AUTHOR COMMENTARY by Victoria VaneAs an author of several sub-genres of historical fiction it is my belief that to truly understand a given era one must study the popular culture of the times, and nowhere is the mindset of the people more clearly demonstrated than on the stage. It was while reading Hannah Cowley’s The Belle’s Strategem, one of the most popular of late Georgian era plays, that I was inspired to write A BREACH OF PROMISE. While The Belle’s Stratagem juxtaposes two different [...]


    8. Great short read, with witty dialogue and loveable hero and heroine, that put a real smile on my face.Looking forward to reading more from Victoria Vane.


    9. Lydia Trent is at first thrilled to find herself engaged to Marcus, Lord Russell, and they share some hot and heavy breathing on the night of their engagement, but then he high tails it off to work overseas. One year becomes two, then three and finally it's been six years and Lady Lydia wants to void the marriage contract, dump her fiancé and move on with life - but Marcus isn't about to let go."If I am freed, my life will become a purgatory of simpering debutantes.”That sounds like a fate wo [...]


    10. It was OK. Lots of historic-y words like "Lud!", "taradiddle", "lackaday", "flummery" and "betwixt" wrapped around a typically thin erotica plot and a tone that read like many standard Regency HRs (even though this was Georgian-set with current historical events wedged into the dialogue). Their lips say "no" but their body parts say "yes", some dirty talk, shocked feelings of wickedness. Slick wet quims and heated cores and twitching cocks. Love, hate, love. Oneupmanship. Witty banter. Fingers a [...]


    11. One of my very favourite HR storylines is that of the long-gone fiance. You know, the one who is betrothed to the heroine while she is little more than a child, and comes back years later to discover how much she's grown up in his absence.I REALLY liked this book. I was predisposed to like the story, but the writing was what clinched it for me. The detail, the clothing, the descriptions, the dialogue. Oh, the dialogue! It is simply WONDERFUL. The expressions used by the characters, their turns o [...]


    12. This is an erotic historical romance. I was told it was slightly "Heyer-esque." I'm not sure what that means, but I thought "Georgette Heyer," the famous author of books in the Georgian era. I hate Heyer, so it was with much trepidation that I picked this up. It's cute, witty, and the sex is very erotic. I also learned a lot of new words, thus it was somewhat like Heyer. However, the real and very dead Heyer used as many complicated and head scratching words as possible in one sentence. Vane jus [...]



    13. This was a sweet and super sexy short read! It was hot and bothered!I love Marcus. Such an arrogant, cocky bastard brought to his knees by none other than is estranged fiancée. Don't you just love a good rub-it-in-your-face tale? This was it, done perfectly!It was beautiful seeing a true bond form in the midst of an electrifying lustful connection. And I have to say I do love erotic HR!!A big thanks to BamaGal for this great rec!


    14. A talented and skilled author who knows her plot and how to create tasteful sexy scenes. This isn't a story focused on the sexual acts between the characters, but much more, a story about the hero and heroine's life. She's created a novella with a lot of depth, and it's only her debut title! I expect great things to come from Victoria Vane!


    15. A little too short. And the blood-thirst in me wants Marcus to suffer and grovel more before Lydia takes him back. Seriously, he should be pissing blood. Then only I'll grant this a 5stars read.


    16. Historical Romances are where most readers started when they jumped out of the classics. I have a fondness for this particularly category because it allowed me an escape from this time for many years. But I just love the newer historical romances!! Gone are the quivering and cowering virgins and in waltz the new age girls decked out in old-fashion attire! I would like to imagine that there were many heroic women back then, and Lydia would be an excellent example. She is promised to Lord Russell [...]


    17. A Breach of Promise by Victoria VaneErotica isn’t my normal cup of tea; but if this novella is a sign of things to come I will be reading more of it. I am learning things from some of the authors I have interviewed, one of those being Emery Lee who also writes as Victoria Vane. We have talked and shared quite a bit since I interviewed her. So please read this review in that spirit. I was acknowledged in this book and that is kindness itself, because I just think she has real talent and told he [...]


    18. 4.5 Stars I LOVED THISBest smut I've read all year. And I can't believe it's a historical! I think this type of fiction is very subjective. Moreso than other genres because it really depends on what you fancy. This novella did it for me. It had charming characters, witty dialogue and an intriguing plot. And it was hot! Marcus was a self-absorbed, arrogant and conceited douchebag and so I fell in love with him from the very first page. Lydia was intelligent, headstrong and basically the perfect h [...]


    19. Originally posted at: whippedcream2/201What is that old saying? 'If you play with fire, you’re bound to get burned.'That is the lesson learned by our protagonist, Marcus. Reluctant to enter into a betrothal with Lydia, who is just turning seventeen, he does what is required by family obligation. His father and uncle, the Duke of Bedford, set up the match with no consultation from Marcus. He would prefer to focus on his own burgeoning political career, and still wants to sow his wild oats. Who [...]

    22. I've never been a fan of short stories because there is never enough depth to satisfy the reader in me, so I should have known that this book was no different. I gave it a shot anyway and it fell short like all the rest. Not to mention that I did not like the hero. He came off as a very shallow cookie cutter character. He didn't even try to get to know the heroine in the past or give her the time or day just because she wasn't good looking at the time, but the second he saw that she turned into [...]


    23. Story Rating 4 StarsCharacter Rating 4 StarsHeat Level 4.5 StarsRomance Rating 4 StarsOverall Rating 4 StarsThis was a VERY good read for me. Victoria does erotic historical romances just the way I want them to be. My only complaint is that I WISH it was longer. Even though it is a short read Victoria Vane still manages to give us a very good story with great characters and enough heat to have most readers squirming in their seats. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a fast, steamy well [...]


    24. A Breach of Promise is a romance reader's tasty treat with charismatic characters and a sensual seduction wrapped up in a Georgian romance novella. Lady Lydia is tired of waiting around for her betrothed, Lord Marcus, to finally marry her. In her frustration, she calls off the engagement, to the surprise of Lord Marcus. Marcus realizes that he must fix the situation and woo Lydia back. When he meets Lydia again, he realizes that the young girl he knew is now a woman. A woman he hurt who is deter [...]


    25. This was a truly sweet, tantalizing, romantic, hilarious and sexy read. It left me wanting for more and dissatisfied for good reasons.I totally loved Lydia's strength of character. She was an intelligent and delightful heroine.While Marcus was a full of himself pompous prat and rake, you just couldn't help loving him. He was a good rake. I also enjoyed reading about Nicholas and Mariah. Their dishevelled appearances towards the end hinted at something much more. It would be lovely if Miss Vane d [...]


    26. OMG What a fun story! Hot! Historical! Amazing!! I think my favorite part about the story is the banter between the hero and heroine. You know they're meant to be from the start, so well-matched are they for each other. Now, if they could just get past their differences ;)Wonderful read for anyone who is looking for some heat between the sheets with the added backdrop of history. Lydia is just a DOLL and Marcus is a fool for even thinking of letting her go! I loved both of them from the start!MU [...]


    27. A great sensual (erotic) historical read (and now my favorite) that had me loving the spunk of the lovely, innocent Lydia from start to finish. There is nothing like a woman that can put a man in his place without even trying! Now Marcus (sigh), is another story. I just did not like him. He was all about dollar signs, reputation and getting places with no regard of poor Lydia or her feelings. He (to me) was a cold, cruel, pompous arse! Luckily things change and people mature or else Lydia would [...]


    28. 2.5-3 stars - the book had much promise but suffers from the novella length. The plot and characters needed a longer book for depth, especially to provide a longer timeline for the characters to resolve the differences, reconciliation and establish the relationship between the two MCs.


    29. *3.5 stars*This was a very enjoyable, but short read! This easily could have been longer, even a full-length novel. I enjoyed it very much.The epilogue was fantastic, and SO true what each of them said about getting the other to the alter!
