    One thought on “Lord Lucifer's Disciple”

    1. Lord Lucifer's Disciple by Sue London is a 2014 Graythorn publishing release. This novella is the first of the Haberdashers series and although I have read the first three full length books in the series, I somehow missed this one. I was so happy I found it included in an anthology book I picked up. (Scandalous Summer Nights) So, I am backtracking a little bit here, but I wanted to see how the series got started and I am glad I did. I could sort of identify with the two main characters in this s [...]

    2. Another great book! When a story involves a character reading a book like the one in this story you know it's going to be good.

    3. A short novella that I thoroughly enjoyed. A decent plot and number of characters for the size of the book weaving it's way into the Haberdashers plot. Not a lot more to say as its a novella!

    5. Fell in love again with another of Sue London's heroes. This time it is John Howards, a quiet, unassuming gentleman who is quite comfortable on his own. He has recently returned from Vienna where he met and befriended Casimir, the delightful fellow who George falls madly in love with in Fates of Apate. He is invited to a masquerade ball by his cousin where he meets Elisa Jarvis, an heiress who has successfully evaded marriage to a fortune hunter. Because he feels his own persona is so bland, he [...]

    6. This is the story about John Howards and he has finally accepted an invitation to one of his cousin's masque balls. Having always been very shy he decides to attend in the guise of his friend from the Congress of Vienna. But he didn't expect that by playing a role it would free him to flirt with a beautiful woman. Or that she would return his flirting. After a night in the garden that he regrets, can he convince her to marry him when he is himself?Elisa Jarvis has made it to 21 years old, withou [...]

    7. Elisa Jarvis knows that all her husband prospects are just after her dowry, plus they are all boring! That is until she meets a mysterious foreigner at a masked ball.John Howards has always been awkward during social functions, so when he finally agrees to attend his cousin's masked ball he pretends to be his foreign friend. It gives him the courage to do things he would never dream of as himself.What will Elisa do when she unmasks her foreign friend?This was my first story by Sue London and I r [...]

    8. At 108 pages it is a quick read, but is a full story. The characters are likable. You have the aging heiress that wants someone to love her for herself and not her money. Then you have the third son that is dull and not sociable until he meets the woman of his dreams. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

    9. Loved it! Ms London regained her stride after her ever so slight stumble with George's story. I loved Elisa and John and Uncle Em and Violetta! Heck I like the three Haberdashers again! Can read as stand alone but you will appreciate the book so much more if you start with Jack's story. I am looking forward to Robert's story now!

    10. I reviewed this novella in my review for the Scandalous Summer Nights collection of novellas.Wonderful novella. Seriously, I don't think Ms. London can write a book I won't like.

    11. I really liked this novella! It was great to get another glimpse into the lives of the haberdashers as well as this cute story about a secondary character finding his way.

    12. Sweet and fun2.5 stars. Quite a lot happens in this book for a novella. The male character is quirky and fun. An enjoyable read.

    13. Delightfully steamy romanceWell written with relatable and likeable characters. It's a sweet addition to the Haberdashers series. It also has a few nice steamy scenes.

    14. Historical English romance with two untitled but still related to titled rich folks.Mr. John Howards is super shy. I think that it would have been more understandable in our more tolerant modern era, but he is treated badly by the other rich titled sons as he is growing up, so that he has only one friend, his younger cousin, Violette. I really liked Violette who only wants the best for her introverted cousin, John so that she invites him to all of her parties even though he always rejects them, [...]
