*Review* Markham Hall Series by Sierra Simone

Hey Addict's 

It's been a while since I did a personal review besides the normal Blog Tour. So much has been going on in my personal life that I felt a little lost without blogging(due to wrist/hand issues). So after a two or is it three(lol) month break. I'm back again, and this time I have an awesome review for the Markham Hall Series by Sierra Simone. If you don't know who Sierra Simone is then please, please, pllleeeaaassseee, look her up. She wrote one of the hottest books this summer and one of my top favorite book for this year. I admit I have now become a taboo junkie( forbidden romances). Check out her book Priest(hot hot hot stuff right there). You will not be disappointed. 



Yorkshire, 1879 

I am alone. 

When Ivy Leavold is left destitute by her brother’s death, she is taken in by her cousin’s brooding, tortured widower--Julian Markham. Handsome and possessive, it’s not long before Ivy falls for him. But Mr. Markham has dark secrets, secrets that may put Ivy in danger... 

I am afraid. 

As Ivy unravels the mystery surrounding her cousin’s death, she falls deeper and deeper in love with Julian, who opens her body and her mind to his indomitable will. But even as he draws pleasure and desire from her night after night, Ivy can’t shake the feeling that their passionate affair may end in violence… 

And I am completely his. 

So begins the riveting Markham Hall trilogy--a tangled tale of love, betrayal, and murder. This volume includes The Awakening of Ivy Leavold, the second book, The Education of Ivy Leavold, and the third book, The Punishment of Ivy Leavold. And then enjoy a final glimpse into Julian and Ivy's lives in the bonus novelette, The Reclaiming of Ivy Leavold!


5 out of 5 Stars

I don't normally read Historical romances but when I received a sign-up for this series in my inbox, I actually let it sit for about a week(that was before I read Priest). After reading Priest, I was cleaning out my inbox and saw the review request again. After reading the blurb and debating if I wanted to read Markham Hall series I decided to sign up and read more from Sierra Simone.

I'm glad I did. 

The Markham series has a little bit of everything, Mystery, forbidden romance, erotica.  I absolutely enjoyed reading this series.

Ivy our lead is not your average prim and proper lady. Ivy is what you call a free spirit, rather than be at boring social gatherings she would rather be outdoors reading a book or exploring nature. 

After the death of her brother Ivy leaves the only home she knows to live at Markham Hall with her late cousins husband, Julian Markham.

Like I wrote before this series has a little bit of everything for me. I was captivated by this story from page 1. This for me is about learning to accept who you are despite what society deems how you should present yourself. 

I did have one small issue when Ivy kept calling Julian, Mr Markham even after being intimate with him, but after talking with DynoMoon she explained that was what the women did in the Austen era(see told you I don't normally read historicals lol)

Did I mention how hot this story line is??

No I didn't 

You guys are in for a sensual treat with this series. The sexual tension between Ivy and Julian is so so thick *fans self*. There are several scenes that will make you squirm in your seat and feel flushed. Now normally when I read a story or series when the sexual tention is thick between the two characters that when they finally do the deed sometimes I loose interest in the story after.

Not with this one..

The drama is woven into the story so beautifully will keep you glued to your kindles. There were several times I wanted to smack Julian's housekeeper for being a total bitch. The mystery surrounding Ivy's cousin/Julian's wife's death alone will have you second guessing our dark hero's innocence.

All and all this is a must read for me and easily one of my top books for this year.
