    Second in the Once Wicked series, this story focuses on Jacqueline, the headmistress of a school that secretly takes in girls saved from brothels and helps create new lives for them. As the purpose of the school deals with sex and child exploitation, along with Jacqueline's abusive past, this story had more of a solemn tone. I have to say, the beginning of this and first half was very slow going. I would almost categorize this as fiction with some mystery instead of romance. The author calmly an [...]

    Once a Courtesan 'Once a Courtesan' by Liana LeFey is book Two in the "Once Wicked"series.  This is the story of Jacqueline and Will.  I have read the previous book but feel this can be a standalone book.  Will is a  Constable that is going undercover at Jacqueline school after rumor had broke that something was going on there.  But what Will learned was the school was nothing that he thought it was.  Will finds Jacqueline to have more to her than just the Head Mistress title.  Jacqueline [...]

    It's a historical crime thriller. The story touches dark side of London's life in 1700s. I find it quite interesting and enjoyed reading it.Jacqueline is a headmistress of a girl's charity school but she is hiding a tragic past, not only hers but of every girl in her school. She loves them dearly and would do anything to protect their future, even lie. This is her calling, she is meant to help these girls and make sure that they're well taken care of. Beyond that there is no purpose of her life. [...]

    Rating:“You are not your scars Jacqueline, any more than I am mine.”This book only gotten my attention because of the title. lol! This is my first book of the author and going in, there was no expectations of anything.Although I love reading historicals, I usually stay away from it because there's only two things that could happen. Reading it would be a drag and it will always make me fall asleep, or it will be an obsession. This one was the latter.Constable Will Danbury is like a secret age [...]

    There’s nothing I love more in a story than a strong female heroine. I woman who, despite facing horrendous atrocities, rises above all that she’s been through and uses her experiences to help others. That’s who Jacqueline Trouvère is; brave, fierce, headstrong and compassionate. Despite being horrifically scared physically and emotionally, she never feels sorry for herself. She has dedicated her life to helping others, old and young, get out of terrible lives and start over so that they [...]

    The premise of this book intrigued me and I’m happy to report that the unique storyline and characters lived up to what was promised. The love story of Will and Jacqueline is not an insta-love story, it is not fast paced but it is engaging and the pacing suits the circumstances and events. There is a whole lot of backstory surrounding this courageous heroine and when push comes to shove, Will more than lives up to the role of her hero. Theirs is a complex, and at times heartbreaking story. Jac [...]

    I hadn't read this author before, so I didn't have any presumptions about how it would be written. I'm a sucker for a good historical romance, and this didn't disappoint. It was a little slow in the beginning, but I didn't find it boring. I liked getting to slowly know about Jacqueline's past. Once the dangers started coming out of the woodwork and Will and Jacqueline's romance started to blossom, the book really picked up and I found it hard to put down. The ending wrapped up quite nicely, too. [...]

    A lot of people like this book, and I wish that I was one of them. It just didn't work for me. I felt that the plot was far-fetched, and not really believable, even to the lower standards that I have for pulp fiction/romance novels. The clincher: Not enough romance, but heaps of violence at the end.

    Once a Courtesan by Liana LeFey was a interesting read. It was the first book I've read by this author and entertaining in its mystery. Luckily I wasnt able to determine the bad guy immediately but it's not really the main point of the story. Although historical it kind of read like a contemporary and not in a bad way. I do wish that Will and the Headmistress had more chemistry, that is my only complaint, also maybe wishing the steam had picked up sooner and had more impact. Maybe a series of fl [...]

    I really enjoyed this story! I always love a good mystery thrown into any romances that I read and LeFey does a wonderful job of including both without one overshadowing the other.Jacqueline is not your typical heroine as she used to be a courtesan (as the title suggests). But she was forced into the situation and it was only with one man. Will is a constable, sent to investigate what is going on at Jacqueline's school for girls. He quickly ascertains that everything is on the up and up at the s [...]

    ✮ Read this review and more like it on The Last Page ✮Once a Courtesan is the story of Jacqueline Trouvère, headmistress of a school that rescues young girls from brothels and educates them in the skills they need to start life anew. I knew that the story would be a bit different from the average historical romance, but what I ended up with was a daring romance about trauma and learning to trust and love again.Jacqueline is an unconventional heroine and I adored her. Jacquelinl was a courte [...]

    There are so many authors out there that I’m trying to get to and if you’re like me, you’re always getting sidetracked because all of my favorite authors keep me busy by writing new books. Well, this author has been on my radar for a very long time and I’m so glad to have found the time to “squeeze” her in.This is the second book in Once Wicked series (and my first read of the author and the series, but I found it could be read as a stand alone) and the title says it all. These are t [...]

    Historical Romance crime mystery. It had all the aspects one would want: tension, passion, criminals, manipulative criminal bosses, and love. Danbury infiltrates an all girls school under a lead that it is really a front for dark London underage desires. Headmistress Trouvere does not want to hire the male teacher- but desperate times call for desperate measures. Then shady business starts to happen- Jacquelines past has followed her. I really enjoyed this books. It has such a good trumps evil m [...]

    Firstly, When I signed up to read this lovely story, I wasn't aware that there was another book before it. Probably because I wasn't paying attention to that fact. Anyway, I have been trying to find book one at my library and they don't carry it!Anyway, This story was about secretly taking girls in from brothels and giving them a new start at life. Jacqueline, the headmistress of the school, had a goal, a mission, due to her abusive past, to save these girls. Will, the other main character in th [...]
