    1. THE BED AND THE BACHELOR written by Tracy Anne Warren07/11 - HarperCollins Publishers - Mass Market Paperback, 368 pagesWill love always find the real you regardless of how many lies you tell to stay hidden?Being devoted to her father and brothers should have helped Sebastianne Dumont but instead Sebastianne must become a deceitful, horrid spy to save her brothers from one man’s cruelty and exposing her brother’s to the torture of war. Sebastianne becomes Annie Greenway and finds herself in [...]

    2. Pages survived: 30 Yeah. This book sucked. Generally, when I give up on a book at thirty pages, it's typically for the exact same reason, regardless the particular novel; the characters bored me.This is pretty pathetic, too, when considering the scope Warren had with which to work. To me, somehow, someway, the characters just were flat, and didn't jump off the page to me as being real people.

    3. 2.00 Stars - Regency Historical Romance!This is the fifth installment of the series and tells the story of an intellectual aristocrat and a reluctant spy masquerading as a housekeeper. Lord Drake Byron is a mathematician and a scientist who spends extensive hours devising and thinking over new whatever inventive he works on. He is currently working on a top secret cipher for the war department designed for the British government. Sebastianne Dumont is his new housekeeper whom he hired against hi [...]

    4. Sebastianne has been forced to come to England and takes the position of Lord Drake Byron's housekeeper, so she can be a spy for France in order to save her family who are in danger if she doesn't get a certain piece of information. Only what she didn't expect was to be working for a man that is more tempting than she expected. Lord Drake knew that when Anne came into his office desiring the housekeeper position that she would present only problems if he hired her, but despite his inner turmoil, [...]

    5. First of all, the title of this book is seriously stupid.Next, there is no chemistry b/w the H and h. Nada. The only reason I gave this book 2 stars instead of 1 is because it had a decent ending.

    6. Ok, but all around underwhelming. No real emotion or showing as to why these two would be interested in each other. But loved the reluctant spy approach.

    7. My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the bookTAW’s books have had some mixed reviews from me. Some were great, some ok while the others just weren’t up to the mark. If I talk about The Byrons series, I must say I liked most of the books (my absolute favorite being book #4). So, when I heard that despite having 8 siblings, The Byrons series will come to an end with Drake’s book, I was very sad. I love the family itself and in each book, one or more sibli [...]

    8. Obtaining a position as housekeeper in Drake Byron’s household was easy. Now Sebastianne has to steal the cipher he developed for the British forces to use in their war correspondence so the French will be unable to know Britain’s plans. Sebastianne is a spy for the French and was forced to steal the cipher in exchange for keeping her elderly father and two younger brothers safe. But she has fallen in love with Drake and knows she will see hate and disgust in his eyes when he finds out what [...]

    9. This was hard me to get into at first, but after the first few chapters I really started to enjoy it. I love the chemistry between Sebastianne and Drake. I felt like she rushed the ending and the epilogue was sadly lacking. All in all I really do still like Tracey Anne Warren’s books.

    10. Giant boobs alert!Perplexed. After looking at the cover of this book I have come to the conclusion that there must be something wrong with me. When I lay down flat on my back I do not have what appear to be two giant scoops of ice cream sitting on my chest. Or maybe two giant perfectly shaped Jell-O molds. Or maybe two silicone objects that look mighty hard. And what's with the red satin sheet wrapping/tucking? Looks like a prom dress.Now to the inside of The Bed and the Bachelor. Another spy. I [...]

    11. Review published at All About Romancelikesbooks/cgi-bin/bookRevMs. Warren’s latest Byrons of Braebourne historical romance is proof that an author’s competency with prose doesn’t inherently translate into a well-written book. Ms. Warren is a capable writer with a knack for description and settings. However, in this book, her proficiency does not extend to her plot or her characters. I found the former dreary and the latter unlikely.Drake Byron is a brilliant scientist who has always put hi [...]

    12. I was excited for this book to come out because I'm a fan of Drake. I've been itching to get his story and finally it came. Tracy Anne Warren has done wonders with this series because this is book 5 and I'm still salivating at the mouth for more. Drake is brother to Cade, Jack, Ned, Mallory and the rest of the mad Byrons. He's a mathmetician and is known for his distracted nature. He's usually buried in his codes and work but when his housekeeper up and left for greener pastures, he was stuck fi [...]

    13. Tracey Anne Warren introduced the Byrons in February 2009, describing them as a “tempestuous family—famous for scandal and legendary at love.” Thus far she has given us the story of Cade, son #2 (Tempted by His Kiss); Jack, son #3 (Seduced by His Touch); Edward, Duke of Clybourne, son #1(At the Duke’s Pleasure); Mallory, daughter #1(Wicked Delights of a Bridal Bed); and a short story about Byron cousin India, “Charmed by His Smile,” (which chronologically fits between Cade’s and Ja [...]

    14. I reviewed this book for Romance Reader At Heart website: RRAH's THOUGHTS AND PONDERINGS: The above blurb says it all, so I will not burden you with my own synopsis. However, I have to start this review with telling you that I have every book Ms. Warren has written, and while her Mistress series is still on my TBR pile, I've made sure to read her current Byrons of Braebourne series. It all started with TEMPTED BY HIS KISS and Cade Byron's story, which was just so very, very good. Jack Byron's st [...]

    15. Reread this a second time (Dec 2013) to write this review, in hopes that the Byrons of Braeborne series will continue to cover the twins and Esme sometime in the future (Update: TAW says she will! See: tracyannewarren/faqsp)NOTE: This is more a detailed plot summary than a review. I write these so I can remember what happened in any given book, especially those in series. But if anyone else finds this helpful - awesome.Drake's housekeeper has mysteriously quit and left for the country. Enter Seb [...]

    16. Sebastianne Dumont is, above all, loyal to her family. So when a villainous Frenchman threatens to imprison her father and conscript her young brothers to war, she agrees to his demands that she act as a spy. Sebastianne must infiltrate the home of Lord Drake and steal the special cyphers he has created for the English government. She gets her foot in the door as a housekeeper, using a false identity. She actually does very well at the job, but it's far more labor intensive than she imagined. He [...]

    17. Every time I pick up one of Tracy Anne Warren's books, I think I can't possibly enjoy it as much as I did the one before. Somehow, she always manages to pleasantly surprise me. I LOVED this book. Drake intrigued me from the time he was introduced in one of the earlier Byron books, and I am happy to say that he does not disappoint as a hero. He manages to be simultaneously smart, kind, passionate, tough, and everything else you'd want in an ideal man. (It doesn't hurt that he's gorgeous, either.) [...]

    18. Quite average and very disappointing in comparison with the previous one.The hero is supposedly extremely intelligent; however after realizing something very unusual happens (view spoiler)[ his being drugged one night and having found his newly hired and sexy housekeeper half in his bed(hide spoiler)], he never tried to dig into this mystery. Then the supposedly almost as intelligent fake housekeeper also did something perfectly stupid, convinced it is the only solution to her dilemna (view spoi [...]

    19. I really liked this book. Drake appealed to me in other books because he seemed so absentminded. In this one I definitely got more of why he was like that. I really admired the way he was able to focus on what he was doing until he got it where he wanted it. I also liked Sebastianne. She really didn't want to be doing what she was doing, but she had no choice. I really enjoyed the way that Drake was so attracted to Sebastianne right from the beginning. For a guy that swore he would never let a w [...]

    20. I love the Byron family. I have always been partial to Drake and was not disappointed with his story. This book unnerved me and tested my patienceI have very little. I found myself skipping over a lot of text, mainly the "love" scenes, since the details didn't add a whole lot to the story. To my consternation I got to the climax of the book and couldn't keep my eyes open. Every time I woke up in the night I found myself trying to figure out all the scenarios for the happily ever after ending. No [...]

    21. First off--the title of the book had nothing to do with the story. I was very disappointed with the pace and action in this book. It was boring and spent far too many chapters with the sneaky heroine trying to access the code. She dissapointed and tricked the Lord Drake's staff; as well as Lord Drake. He's a smart guy but somehow did not pick up on the all the clues that something was not right. It also did not end with a wedding and the final gathering of the Byrons. The ending was not satisfyi [...]

    22. 3.5I enjoyed this book. I didn't like it quite as well as the previous entry to the series, but it was still enjoyable. I liked Drake and Anne's characters. They both were written as down to earth characters. I think, though, that the reason why I didn't give 4 stars was that they fell in love kinda quickly. At least for me in seemed that way. Eh. :) But I did enjoy reading about Drake's younger twin brothers and the antics they got themselves in.

    23. London 1813Drake is 28 and Anne is 22. The story could have been a little better. Drake was a good character, being all smart and a younger son. I wasn't too impressed with Anne. She was ok, and I didn't hate her. But she was kinda flat. I just didn't bond with the 2 characters in this book. The only real action was at the very end of the book, and it was over with quick. The ending fell flat also, very rushed and really didn't leave much to wonder what happens next.

    24. I can almost never go wrong with a good spy story and Tracy Anne Warren delivered with this one. I loved the chemistry between Drake and Sebastianne. Even before they connected physically they had such a connection between them that made this such a delightful read. I think one of my favorite parts of the story is when Drake followed her (can’t say more to steer away from any spoilers). His twin brothers were also very entertaining throughout the story. Can't wait to read a story of their own. [...]

    25. Zatiaľ posledná kniha zo série o Byronovcoch (pevne verím, že to nebude celkom pravda, veď Warren sľubovala, že sa do písania príbehov zvyšných súrodencov pustí - viď v rozhovore Tracy Anne Warren sa svojimi postavami necháva viesť pre Kokinu červenú knižnicu). Tentoraz bol hlavným hrdinom matematik Drake. Celú recenziu si prečítajte tu: kokinakniznica/201

    26. Typically, I love Tracy Anne Warren, but this book wasn't her best. The characters were fine, but somehow the plot seemed like it had some holes in it or moved along at an odd pace. It did seem to tee-up additional Byron books, and I suspect we can look for books about the twins Lawrence and Leo in the forthcoming months.

    27. I really wanted to love this book because I have a thing for nerds or scholarly types no matter what time period. Alas I thought it was just okay. I feel there could have been more to Drake's story and thought it a little flat in comparison to others in the series. I am looking forward to the twins's stories though.

    28. I liked it. The spy/lover to wife is not my favourite, but TAW wrote it very straight forward. It could have been really over the top as far as the villain, but he was dispatched with in a pragmatic way. I really liked the hero, smart arrogant and seemingly distracted is a very attractive combination.

    29. I hate to give 3 stars, but the storyline was a little difficult for me to accept. I couldn't feel any chemistry between them. But it was still a good read, not as good as the others though. I really hope there will be more Byron books to enjoy since we still have 2 brothers and 1 sister left!
