I received an ARC from the author Nina Mason in exchange for an honest opinion. This is mismousey’s very honest opinion of her book ” “THE DUKES BEDEVILED BRIDE”.
Having had the honor of reading the first book in the series – The Devil in Dukes Clothing. Which I must say right here for everyone to know is a must read. If you haven’t read it yet – then you are really missing out on a fantastic story and author. I knew that I had to have more of the story of Robert and Maggie. I was so excited when Ms. Mason announced that Book 2 was in the works and would soon be available. Never did I realize that this one would be so powerful and romantic- along with erotic.
Ms. Mason has a very unique writing style that is all her own. She does a tremendous amount of research for each she writes. As her books are historical novels- and she wants them to be the correct down to the point period that she is writing about. Making sure that what she writing actually did happen during that time period. Her characters are so enchanting- one minute you move them the next you might hate them.However, she makes them so well defined and describes them so well. You are able to picture each character in detail in the time period. With the correct clothing on. Her scenes well – lets just say they are so hot !! That after a bedroom scene or two you need a cold bath. LOL.. No really – the erotic scenes are very hot in this book and I did find myself needing to cool of a time or two. But I kept reading. Had to have more of the story. Just pictured myself in the book as one of the characters.
Her covers – teasers- trailers- are all done by her. She even does her own promo. Ms Mason is considered an Indie author. Both books in the Royal Pains series are self-published.
Before I give you my review of her delicious book. I had the pleasure this morning of sitting down with Ms, Mason and interviewing her.
Good Morning and do I have a treat for everyone today!! This morning we have with us the very talented author Nina Mason.Thank you for joining us today. May I call you Nina??
Nina: At this point, only the Royal Pains series is self-published–so I could get it out in between my books with publishers. The Queen of Swords and The Tin Man are with Vamptasy/CHBB and my forthcoming Knights of Avalon series is with Lyrical Press. Not sure yet what I’m going to do with my merman book. Need to finish it first and see how I feel about submitting it to publisher. As for purchasing my self-published books, you can purchase them from the following places. Amazon-Barnes & Nobles ( has paperback) and also my Esty shop at Esty.com. Now as to how it feels to be an Indie author, that’s a good question. Like swimming in a tank full of sharks. Lol. Seriously, it’s hard work and I have no budget to do marketing, so I have to rely on social media. It’s very tough to be noticed when there are so many other authors pimping their books to the same people.
Mousey: I know that your book are on Amazon US & UK , Barnes & Nobles and that your readers can add them to the TBR on Goodreads.
Now as to Mismousey’s review of this FANTASTIC -TERRIFIC- AMAZING-OMG A HOTTIE YOU HAVE TO READ BOOK!! I have already told you how I felt about Ms. Mason writing style and being honored about reading both of the her books in this wonderful series.

However instead of winning his wife over- she had other plans for him. Right there in the carriage she decided to start his punishment. With no paddle in the carriage she uses her hand on his backside. Not realizing that it would be so seductive. After a while – our poor Maggie has had enough. She decides she needs her husbands – and we know how. don’t we ??

When Hugh and his wife arrive all sorts of things start to happen. Suddenly Robert is called to court and he can not get out of it. He has to go. While he is away – Hugh and his wife take over the mansion. Making Maggie nothing more than a servant girl. Even though she is his brothers wife and the heir.
