Description: Charis Forbes-Wilkinson is ruined! At least in the critical eyes of Regency Society. And she is quite content with that state of affairs. Who needs a husband anyway? Unfortunately, an unsolicited offer of marriage appears, sending Charis fleeing into the countryside to meet with a completely unacceptable friend of hers – a gypsy girl.

Fate intervenes, however, in the form of one Sinjun Randall, who is idly tooling his phaeton down the same country lane as Charis. He’s enchanted and she’s fascinated by his handsome smile and easy ways. Finally accepting his offer of a ride – completely outrageous in and of itself – Charis makes her own suggestion. And it’s far more outrageous than a simple carriage trip.

Sinjun agrees without hesitation. He’s found himself entwined in her plans, willing to assist her in her total ruination and completely lost in her expressive eyes. Their passionate interlude completes Charis’s ruination. But rather than ending her future, it marks the beginning of a new and unexpected love…

To My Readers: There’s something about the Regency! Maybe it’s the gowns, or the amazing social changes that were taking place – or maybe it’s just the lure of London when it sparkled with the Ton! As far back as I can remember, I’ve adored that time period and to be writing my own Regency romances is a joy and a challenge. Traveling to Almacks, riding country lanes in a phaeton, or attending a summer party at a magnificent estate – there’s nothing quite like the Regency for fun and romance.

Compromising Charis By Sahara Kelly

 

Review Hilarious, charming, sensual and unique are words that make up Compromising Charis. This tale had me laughing and squirming at the same time. The character Charis is a modern woman trap in the past and Sinjun a witty male with a hungry sexual appetite. The author has created a phenomenal story one I wish would have been longer. Hopefully there is a part two for Charis and Sinjun.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is a delightful read that manages to pack a lot into a short ebook format. I was immediately swept up into this regency world and its characters. Charis Forbes-Wilkinson is not your typical regency heroine. Ruined in the eyes of society, a stubborn and determined Charis refuses to toe the line and accept an offer of marriage that send her literally fleeing for the hills.

Charis' aunt informs her a man, a stranger, has offered for her. 'Soiled Goods' she may be, but if she refuses, a desolate life as a maiden aunt/servant awaits her.

Going for a walk to try and lessen the anger, she comes across a gentleman in a curricle on the road. Handsome and cultured, Sinjin (St. John) Randall refuses to be rebuffed by this haughty miss.

Their banter is engaging, and by the time Charis scandalously climbs into Sinjin's carriage, the mutual physical attraction between the two is all too apparent, and their frank discussion of sex only fuels that flame.

Sinjin is enjoying himself, fate it seems, has presented his potential bride into his hands, a fact Charis has no inkling. Sinjin is wickedly sexy. So much so, Charis makes a scandalous proposal.

Fun, sexy and entertaining, this is a charming read, managing to pack plenty of erotic punch in this short format. Both hero and heroine are engaging.

RATING: 3 and 1/2 stars out of four for ebook

Three years ago Charis was "ruined" in the eyes of society and sent away to the wild of Northumberland. She is back in the company of her aunt in Hampshire because some unknown "lackwit" has decided to ask for her hand in marriage. He must be a lackwit to knowingly want to marry her with such a scandal attached to her name. Charis is headstrong and wants nothing of it; she never regretted her ruination because it was much too fun being ruined. Deciding to head out and find her gyspy friends from Northumberland she never expects to run into a very intriguing man that sends her wanton nature into overdrive.

********

Compromising Charis is a delightfully erotic and fun historically with a decidedly wanton twist. I was drawn in from page one. Charis is strong-willed and untypically sexual for the time period, and I was instantly drawn to this character. Her thinking is outside the box, and I wasn't sure what to expect from her.

The story is highly entertaining, and the sex is red-hot. The heat index in this one will keep the reader panting for more. I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and characterization. I love a historical novel, and this fit the bill perfectly for quick enjoyable read.

I enjoy Ms. Kelly's work, and she has another winner here.

Years ago a youthful indiscretion ruined Charis hopes at a respectable marriage.  Now her family has decided to marry her off to a ‘lackwit.’  Threatened with the loss of her beloved horses and being sent away to live with a poor cousin, Charis is enraged.   She decides to run away and live with her friend Jenny, who is one of the Romany (traveling gypsies).  But on her way to find them she meets with a gentleman named St. John Randall.  He offers her a ride and she accepts.  Charis tell him her tale of woe and they form an easy companionship.  Charis is charmed and tempted by his virile and handsome gentleman and makes him a most improper request… to ravish her.  But what she doesn’t know is Randall her prospective fiancée come to meet her!

Fun and sexy.  This was a lighthearted romp.  The plot is a little improbable but who cares?  It was entertaining and a super steamy read.  Charis is funny and outrageous and Sir John is simply sinful.  He is a dashing and lusty mate for Charis.  They made a fun great pair.  And although Charis has some experience she is still very innocent and St. John is determined to ‘educate’ her and marry her by the end of the story.

For a quick and sexy read this story definitely hits the spot!
