I have this book - A Dangerous Love (Swanlea Spinsters, No 1)

Is it worth getting the rest of the series? I have never read her and I would like to know if it worth trying to get the rest of the series. Also what is the rest of the series?

It sounds like it would be pretty good? Let me know if anyone likes her.

I've not read that but have read several others by her and LOVE her.  She's one of my fave historical authors.

She's one of the big dominators of my TBR pile.  I have a drawer full of her books and haven't read them yet.

I've read her before and I have to be honest.  Some of her books I have LOVED!!!!  But others I couldn't even finish.  I think it just depends upon the person reading the book.

She can be very good, but some of her stylistic tricks get on my nerves.

good idea. This isnt my favorite series by her. I think the triogy before and after it are tighter. Sabrina is hanging out at the Eloisa James/Julia Quinn Board all this month BTW

She's one of my favorite authors of the moment. :)  I haven't read the Swanlea Sisters, still working through School for Heiresses, but I do love her writing style.

I loved A Dangerous Love, but I didn't even finish the 2nd in the series, A Notorious Love.  I do plan to give the others in that series a try though.  I've heard the last two are good.  I've read 3 or 4 in her Heiress series so far and loved them, and a couple of others.  

The books in that series are:

A Dangerous Love

A Notorious Love

After the Abduction

Dance of Seduction

Married to the Viscount

I actually like "A Notorious Love" even more than "A Dangerous Love", and they are both on my keeper shelf.  I have not read the rest in that series yet, but they are in my TBR pile.

The fifth, Married to the Viscount is one of my favorites by her, and I liked After the Abduction a lot.

Overall I enjoy her books and always get them, some better than others like most.  I like her earlier Lords series a lot and working through the last two series now - again some are better than others from comments I've seen around.

I have everything of hers except for a good copy of A Dangerous Lord, and I have that, it's just falling apart on me.  She's another one I've collected and haven't read yet.  It's because when I started looking at her books, everything was series stuff, and I like to get all of those before I start the first one.  I'm no good with waiting.  I like to go straight from one book right into the next.
