It seemed like she was just there to be a foil to Julian.
This was very much his story. He had to grow and adjust while Lily was already where she needed to be. She had no real character growth, and the lack of it was a little frustrating. Julian was interesting and likable, but when I learned more about him I felt rather let down. I really felt that he blew his issues way out of proportion.
Maybe if he was with any other girl it might have seemed more logical, but with Lily there was no doubt of their love for each other or their friendship. Really, the only conflict in their relationship was Julian himself. He had to get over himself enough to stop worshiping her and start seeing her as a partner. I found the book pretty engaging for the first pages, but after that it started to bore me a bit. I jut felt that I was reading something pointless.
There was no real issue, it was just a matter of waiting for Julian to figure it out and stop lying to Lily. I really started to dislike their relationship when I figured out he would never tell her if he had a choice. The fact that Lily was so sweetly patient about most everything was disappointing too. I wanted her to push him and make him grow a pair. It was so frustrating! The reveal about Leo was pretty obvious from the time we first saw the contents of one of the letters.
The reason for his death surprised me though. I was just like Julian, I was expecting something more. I found the whole thing a bit of a let down to be honest. Maybe if certain details had been handled better?

It's just hard not to feel disappointed when all you get is a surprised, "you didn't know? We spent three books building this up, can't we make this a bigger deal? But even with those issues, I was all set to give it four stars until the end. I'm referring to the scene beginning when Julian and Lily are in the carriage and he makes a false assumption about their destination.
When Lily corrects him it leads him to finally reveal all. I was glad that Lily blasted him for his opinion of her and her love for him, but I was pretty ticked off that she rolled over so easily. I was not nearly so forgiving as she was. I really wanted more of a reckoning there.
It was just one more example of how frustrating Lily's perfect and forgiving attitude could be. I won't say whether I liked this book. I'll only mention that I stopped right in the middle of their first love scene, to take out the weeds in my yard! Review for Romantic Romance Readers: 4.
It's very well written, clever, witty, with a sweet, lovable hero and a heroine that has a brain on her shoulders. The hero is totally besotted with her and has been for years, and that's apparent in every single page when he thinks of her. If you like sweet, tender stories and sweet, lovin I won't say whether I liked this book. If you like sweet, tender stories and sweet, loving heroes, you'll love this one and probably ignore the fact that it's even more wallpaperish that Julia Quinn's books.
It's flowery, sappy and sweet enough to send a diabetic into an instant shock. While well written and witty, there's also the fact that it's completely -and I mean completely - wallpaperish. I don't generally dwell on that too much, but the inaccuracies in this case were glaring. Adding to this, is the fact that her protagonists were so sweet and picture perfect, it was like trying to emotionally connect to a face in a photograph.
Finally, if you think this is dark romance, because it's darker than her Goddesses series, forget it; it's not humorous, I'll give you that and it's pretty emotional. But dark or angsty? Definitely not. I'll probably give this author one more try, but I doubt she's my style. I repeat: not a bad book, just not my style at all.

A fantastic ending for the Stud Club I'd wished we had gotten to know Leo more in the previous two books, well, I got my wish. And Julian Bellamy became more than just the hero of the book. He will definitely be one who sticks with me I liked the idea of the Stud Club, and I liked how the theme of Leo's murder set off such a chain of events throughout the trilogy.

The piano scene?! Holy cow! Three Nights with a Scoundrel was a moving, sensual romance, and I'm glad that I finished the series, since the best was saved for last!
And I loved the epilogue. It brought tears to my eyes and left a HEA smile on my face. Oct 23, Becca rated it liked it. Three Nights with a Scoundrel started off wonderfully, had a sluggish middle, and wrapped up neatly. When I first began this story, the chemistry between the two was undeniable. I got the tingly "this is why I read romance" feeling. It was heading to be a solid favorite, but the middle really brought the rating down for me. This story is darker than other Tessa Dare books I have tried.
Three Nights with a Scoundrel Audiobook | Tessa Dare | hujekarezubo.ga
The heroine's twin brother Leo was murdered in the series and they never uncovered who was behind it. The hero, Three Nights with a Scoundrel started off wonderfully, had a sluggish middle, and wrapped up neatly. The hero, Julian, never forgave himself for his friend's murder and believes he was the target. Since that night, he has watched over Leo's twin sister, Lily, hoping to protect her, even though he has been in love with her since he first laid eyes on her.
Lily and Julian are very different people, but from page 1, their chemistry leapt off the pages. I loved how Julian noticed every small detail about Lily, even the curve of her ear. It wasn't just about boobs or erections. It was purer than that and Dare sucked me in. Lily is also deaf from an illness, which added an interesting extra layer to the story. Their relationship as a couple, except for sex, got no page time and the story shifted to focus on Julian's hunt for a murderer.
At this point, I lost almost all interest and struggled to keep going and found myself skimming. One of my GR friends, Caz, said that she loved the audiobook version of this and didn't notice the draggy parts because of the narration and the solid beginning. If you are an audiobook person, I would recommend trying that and looking at her review. I read the print version and despite the solid beginning, the story only ended up being a 3. I saw the other characters from the previous books in the series and they did not interest me.
I will not be reading the other books in this series. Nov 05, Ally72 rated it it was amazing Shelves: historical-romances. I loved this book and it is my favorite Tessa Dare novel to date!!! If I could have given this book more than five stars, I would have. This made my list of favorite books I have read this year!!! View all 22 comments. What a finish to the Stud Club trilogy! I stayed up way too late finishing it -- and I never saw the surprise coming straight at me. There's also a beautiful romance here, between Julian, the bastard son of a nobleman, and Lily, the deaf sister of his murdered friend Leo.
Tessa Dare just does everything right in this one! View all 5 comments. Oct 16, Tammy Walton Grant rated it really liked it Shelves: romance-historical , hr-regency , romance-series-not-so-much , april. Well, what to say about this one that all of my friends here on GR haven't already said and much better than I could, I might add?
I love Tessa Dare. I discovered her books earlier this year and she has quickly become one of my new favourite authors. Her voice is fresh, her characters compelling and she writes some of the best steam I've ever read. While I liked Lily quite a bit, I didn't feel much for Julian one way or another. Frankly, I wasn't sure I cared enough about either of them to read an entire book about them. Eventually my anal-retentiveness and compulsion to leave no book in a series un-read won the day. And here I am.
Three Nights with a Scoundrel Stud Club, 3 , while well-told, just didn't grab me the same way the previous books did. I'm afraid I never really got to care much more about Julian or Lily. It felt a little like the same old, same old thing. A few different twists of course, Lily's deafness but also Julian's alter ego and his mother's story but not much else new. There didn't seem to be the same depth of story I usually find with Tessa Dare's books. Again, perhaps it's just that I didn't connect with the characters.
You didn't get to watch them fall in love - they already loved each other. I didn't get invested in the dance. You know, the mating dance. Sometimes it takes pages - does he, doesn't he, will she, won't she, tension, chemistry, steam. There wasn't any tension for me. I already knew how they felt about it each other, they knew how they felt about each other, and that was it. Again, though, it could just be that I didn't connect with either.
I guess as a result of that disconnect, something jumped out at me early in the book and took me out of the story. I never really made it back in. It's a comment Lily makes to Julian - he is tired, keeping long hours, etc. This is a Regency romance, set in Dracula wasn't published until Well, I thought. Perhaps there was something earlier.
But that one wasn't written until Somehow I just don't think asking someone who looked tired if they were a vampire was really part of the vernacular of I found myself skimming the book just to get to the end so I could find out what really happened to Leo. But that's where the book redeemed itself for me. The answer to the mystery of who killed Leo was wonderfully done. I had completely no idea of course, that might be more because I spent the whole book pondering the use of the word 'vampire' in that was coming, and what a novel way to do it.
It wrapped things up beautifully, and it was very believable. Simply put, it is one of the hottest scenes I've read in recent memory. I almost gave the book 5 stars just for that. View all 11 comments. Aug 02, Ashley rated it liked it Shelves: romantical , murder-most-foul , naughty-bits.
Early Tessa Dare is just not the same as now Tessa Dare. This one is okay. I liked the characters, especially the deaf heroine, but the conflict between them centered on the hero not telling the heroine stuff he should have been telling her the whole time, and that drives me insane in romances. Also, she just really likes inserting the most random animals as pets in these books. Tartuffe the parrot is one of her better efforts, I must say.
Or the lobster. The stuff it's going to be parroting will not be G-rated. Not entirely sure the three book murder mystery arc worked out, although I did like the reveal re: Faraday and Leo. Oct 08, Pamela rated it it was amazing. I loved this so much. Review to follow :. Aug 01, Holly rated it really liked it Shelves: july , books-in , read-in I wasn't sure what to think going into this novel. I wasn't very impressed with Julian in either of the previous two books.
He came across as angry, uncaring, selfish, vain and altogether a not-very-likable character. I vowed to have an open mind, but we all know how that is. So it's with great pleasure that I say I absolutely adored Julian. When his best friend Leo was murdered, Julian Bellamy vowed two things; to find the murderers and bring them to justice and to see Leo's sister, Lady Lily, s I wasn't sure what to think going into this novel.
When his best friend Leo was murdered, Julian Bellamy vowed two things; to find the murderers and bring them to justice and to see Leo's sister, Lady Lily, settled into a good marriage. He loves Lily enough that he wants to see her settled with a man of her own class - something he can never be. Lily is heartily sick and tired of Julian putting himself in danger by searching out her brother's killers.
No one wants justice for his murder than she, but not if it's going to cost her Julian. He's been her best friend as long as she can remember, and she doesn't want him putting himself in danger. Lately he's been like a man obsessed. He hardly eats, rarely sleeps and her concern for him grows more every day.
When he insist yet again that she marry, she agrees to return to society, but only if he accompanies her. He must give her three nights - escort her to three events - or she'll quite happily retire to the country alone. For Julian, spending three nights with Lily is both heaven and hell. He longs for her, but knows he can never have her.
It's the worst sort of torture to be near her and know she can never be his. Lily is deaf. I really loved how strong she was. She didn't shy away from the truth of her feelings and she wasn't afraid to put herself out there. She was happy to try new things, or go on adventures, or put her heart on the line. She was very refreshing. One of the things that frustrated me about the previous novel, Twice Tempted by a Rogue, was that the class differences between the hero and heroine weren't fully explored. That wasn't the case here. Julian really thought about what it would mean for Lily to be with him.
I expected to be annoyed by Julian, or to have his insistance that Lily marry be too much. But instead I sympathized with him and adored him. He really only wanted what was best for her. In so many novels the hero thinks, "Damn the consequences! Dare really showcased just how much Julian truly cared for Lily, in actions rather than words. The problem wasn't with them being in love. It's obvious from the beginning that Julian cares for her and it isn't long before Lily realizes she loves him as well.
The problem is that Julian isn't good enough. Though I understand, and appreciate, the class differences between them and why Julian wanted better for Lily, it was harped on a bit too much. Julian constantly pushes Lily away because he isn't good enough. It became too much for me, especially near the end. He also had a major secret he kept from her, almost until the last page. Why he kept it from her is beyond me. His insistence that he had to be "Good" for her and that she was "everything" to him frustrated me.
The good news is, it also frustrated Lily. She didn't let him get away with much, including keeping her in the dark. Jul 19, May rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: regency romance fans that have read other books in this series. Shelves: ye-olde-romance , series.
This is the third installment of a trilogy, and yes you MUST read the other two first, otherwise it wouldn't truly make sense. Julian Bellamy is a large and angry man who's been in love with Lily sister of dead club founder since he first met her. Believing himself terribly unworthy of her, and harboring a vault of dirty secrets he's convinced that he needs to get her married off to someone else Ok, so what I loved about this is that the previous two couples featured and married off are actually a part of this book, and Tessa Dare brings it all together into the book I have been hoping for since picking up 1.
She has surprises I never saw coming, touching moments, secrets a plenty, a number of steamy scenes I would have been happy with less there - but to each her own , and a truly sweet tale of two soul mates finding their happily ever after. I liked that Julian, despite being strong and clearly intelligent blunders and doesn't immediately find his clear path. I also enjoyed Lily, our independent, deaf by illness a number of years prior to story , and kind hearted heroine. With plenty of drama, surprises, tender moments, and a full cast of memorable characters I loved every page.

Loved James! May 23, A. When you finish a book brimming over with excitement, feeling almost like you're about to pop, that's such a wonderful feeling and a very difficult one to top at that; but I think the way I feel at the end of Three Nights with a Scoundrel -- dreamy, content, rather like how I feel just sitting outside with my dogs on a nice day with a good book, or how I feel knitting in bed next to Rawles as we watch a sitcom -- tops that balloon handily. What a lovely book. What a lovely experience! Lily and Ju When you finish a book brimming over with excitement, feeling almost like you're about to pop, that's such a wonderful feeling and a very difficult one to top at that; but I think the way I feel at the end of Three Nights with a Scoundrel -- dreamy, content, rather like how I feel just sitting outside with my dogs on a nice day with a good book, or how I feel knitting in bed next to Rawles as we watch a sitcom -- tops that balloon handily.
Lily and Julian were introduced separately and together in the very first book in the Stud Club Trilogy, One Dance with a Duke I had to look that up, as I'm still calling it Cinderella Duke in my head, hahaha. We've seen him in both of the preceding books, irritating the hell out of both Spencer and Rhys, but also showing himself to be a pretty stand-up guy underneath all the purposeful nettling, so it comes as no surprise but as an absolute delight regardless to see how thoroughly this decency goes through him, for all the ills he's done and done knowingly.
The real gift, then, is to at last see Lily through her own eyes. We'd seen little of Lily in the previous books; all we really knew of her is that she's deaf, she's of very noble blood, she's VERY kind, and Julian is soooooo in love with her, hot dang. Dude is like flipping his pancakes all over the kitchen whenever she so much as blinks in his general direction.
But also like, can you blame him? There was a little fear, yes, that she might be nothing more than a passive receptacle for Julian's love, an object for his torment to be centered upon, that is: the sort of thing a thousand other romances and a thousand other acclaimed literary masterpieces have done before, that is: B-A-R-F.
Three Nights with a Scoundrel
But fortunately for my digestive system and your delicate nerves presumed I can safely say this book is not even one teensy weensy fraction of an iota vomitrocious. Lily is, like Julian, afforded very real complexities, complexities that she is expected either to hide or not to acknowledge by society. Her deafness causes discomfort and pity in people who cannot or choose not to recognize her deafness as an aspect of her person instead of the defining aspect of her person, and -- already a rather retiring person, someone who prefers to read or to have intimate conversations than to engage in public, impersonal society -- it's this that has caused her to recede so.
No one expects her to be independent; no one believes her capable of it. So a great deal of Three Nights with a Scoundrel is devoted to Lily's slowly and carefully exerting herself, to Lily casting aside concerns for a society she's hardly socialized with, and this carries through, too, to the central romance. Obviously, Lily is as utterly nose over toes for Julian as he is for her, like OBVS, and as with the previous two books in the Stud Club Trilogy, equality within romance and marriage is stressed. It's Lily who pushes Julian, Lily who, at last realizing the true nature of her feelings for Julian and realizing too that she doesn't want to pass up this chance to do something with them, reaches out for Julian and grabs him and asks him to give up his charade of not caring for her as he does care for her.
There is no sacrifice of dignity. She isn't shamed for being sheltered; she isn't punished either by Julian or by the narrative. While her privilege is acknowledged, and she is gently corrected when she forgets the real significance of her circumstances, she's never -- I don't know how to phrase it exactly. She's never taken down for it.
Julian never uses her as a sort of stand in for his very justified resentment of nobility and the class system. She's benefited from her birth, yes, and Dare never loses sight of this -- the criticism of class that began in Cinderella Duke and carried through Two Something Something on the Moor? Is That What It's Called? What I actually meant to write about is how wonderfully and beautifully equal Julian and Lily are. Due to Julian's circumstances growing up, he's very intimate with deafness, deaf culture, and sign language, and this is used, again, wonderfully, not as a means to make Julian into some perfect, rescuing hero come to lift Lily out of the squalor of her disability, etc.
He doesn't rescue her, but he helps her, as Lily does not rescue Julian from his hatred, his desire for revenge, etc. What this book does best, among the many things it does very well, is show how very well Lily and Julian work together. They're friends, first and foremost, and they're in love, and their love doesn't lead them to do awful things to each other or to make awful demands; it gives them each the strength they need to make compromises, to make sacrifices, to give not because they were asked by the other to give but because they want to, because they love.
I very much appreciated how much time was devoted to showing how close Lily and Julian are even before they start smooching, and how their relationship's progress is charted carefully, with great intimacy and kindness, before they fall into bed together. Lust isn't the driving force here; love is. It's just that I liked how very well executed this particular story was and how it emphasized this preexisting respect and love between Lily and Julian.
The resolution of the overarching mystery was also very well done, I thought, without me spoiling THAT, too, hahaha. Not everything happens for a reason; there isn't always a greater purpose to every act. The real reason is in how you respond to what's happened -- not why a thing happened, but what you make of it after it's happened.
And I ALSO want the book where scandalous, clever single mother Claudia reenters society and finds true love, maybe with a younger dude? View 1 comment. Great ending to a wonderful series! I absolutely adore Julian Bellamy. Julian has many secrets just like most leading male characters in the romance genre. But what puts him apart from most "heros" with dark secrets was the ability to use those secrets to be productive and one heck of a business man. I can't get over the cleverness of him being a trend setter by wearing outlandish fabrics and raking in the rewards by secretly being the supplier of said fabric to the tailor shops.
What a delibera Great ending to a wonderful series! What a deliberately smart move on his part. Julian really redeemed himself in this book. He was a little difficult to like in the previous books but after digging deeper into his past and his life story you can't help but come to love him and understand his actions. Julian and Lilly's story was a long time coming and without a doubt mean to be.

There were times throughout the story that I completely forgot Lilly had a 'handicap' and not because of poor writing but because Julian and Lilly communicate on a whole different level They were made for each other, it was that simple and you could "feel" it from the beginning. Oh, and on a side note, I must mention that the piano scene was one of the hottest love scenes I have ever had the privilege of reading. I won't be forgetting that anytime soon! The mystery that started in book one finally gets revealed and I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome.
Leo and Faraday's situation was a very interesting twist. The mis-justice that befell the two was heart- breaking and unfortunate. I was glad that in the end everything was neatly wrapped up and there were no loose ends to ponder. Tessa Dare did a great job with satisfying my need to know the "whole story" and solve the mystery surrounding the exclusive Stud Club and the remaining members. Kudos to the author for this wonderful series, and for an amazing epilogue. What a wonderful ending to three beautiful love stories!

But, as Julian gets more obsessed with finding Leo's murderers believing that they were really after him because of his very shady past, Lily gets worried for his health and makes him promise her three nights with him where he can help her in society to find a husband. I have enjoyed this series greatly, each book has given a great couple with completely different characters, I don't think this will ever be my favourite series but I definately liked it.
And, I am glad that at last I have read Julian and Liliy's book! Julian, I think, would go under the tortured hero catergory, after living his childhood in the gutter and then his adulthood trying to wreak revenge on the aristocracy he doesn't feel worthy of Lily. I have to say that annoyed me a little, the whole unworthy thing, I am glad that Lily was having none of it. In fact I believe Julian was my leasy favourite hero in this series, for some reason he didn't capture me like Spencer and Rhys did.
However, Lily, I did like she adventurous and wasn't afraid to go after Julian when she realized she loved him. What I liked most about this book was the final discovery over who the Leo's murderer was and why he was killed! This part of the story has kept me guessing all the way through!
