*This book is being reviewed as a "collective review" which means that several opinions will comprise the review.  I do not own, I have not been provided a copy of this book, nor have I had the pleasure of reading this novel.

From the publisher:

They say he murdered his wife . . .

Entering her seventh unsuccessful season, Beatrice Albright is beginning to realize that her beauty cannot compensate for her shrewish ways. A desperate woman whom no one wants, she must seek a man whom no one else will marry: the despised and mysterious Marquis of Highcroft, Gareth Berenger. Rumor has it he is a killer, but Beatrice is far more terrified of spinsterhood—and the company of her mother—than she is of Berenger's dark reputation.

But Gareth, while intrigued by the alluring hellion's proposal, has a proposition of his own. A man of particular tastes, he will wed no woman unwilling to satisfy them. His bride must be adventurous, afraid of nothing, and eager to experience any passion and pleasure he can devise, no matter how shocking and taboo. If Beatrice agrees to a trial affair—if she can happily shed all her inhibitions—in the end they will be wed.

And so the die is cast—as Beatrice and Gareth embark on an erotic path where danger awaits them at every turn, en route to a world of exquisite ecstasy where there is nothing forbidden...nothing denied. 
My Musings:

This is an author that I would like to read this year, so I'm curious to know your thoughts.  Have you read this book, this series?  What's it's about and would you recommend it?  Give me your thoughts, or if you read a great review of it please link to it in the comments.  We will all benefit from your insight!

I love this series. I've read the first 2 but haven't read this one yet. I'm interested to see what others have to say about it. She's no longer writing under Jess Michaels. She finished this series and now uses Jenna Peterson only, if memory serves.

In my search to learn more here are two reviews I found informative and helpful...

You can read the review by All Romance here, and Stacy's Place on Earth here.

Looks like one for the TBR at some point in time.

I loved the first two books in the series and look forward to reading "Nothing Denied." She's also writing zombie books as Jesse Petersen.

I've read Everything Forbidden and Something Reckless, the first two books in the Albright Sisters trilogy. And I'm waiting to get my hands on Nothing Denied soon.

Everything Forbidden was my favorite and I think the steamiest. Jess Michaels (also Jenna Peterson) paints Beatrice, the heroine, in Nothing Denied as terribly spoiled, vain and self-serving. You can't help but get annoyed with her character. I understand that she gets what she needs (a good strong hand), um, maybe a spanking *wink* from Gareth Berenger, the strong dominant hero.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
