    This is the first book in a Regency series of six books by Shirl Anders about the Archangels, a group of former spys. I previously read the 4th book in the series, My Lady Taken (Archangels), not realizing it was part of a series. I enjoyed Gabriella in that story, so I wanted to read about how her relationship with Drummond came to be. In the editorial review section of Amazon, they give an excerpt that involves Drummond spanking Gabriella. This is the heaviest that the BDSM gets in the book, so I am surprised that it was chosen as an excerpt, as it is a bit misleading about the book.

    Drummond “purchases” his love from 25 years ago from another Lord who is “selling” her, because she is baron. Gabriella soon discovers that Drummond plans to have his way with her, sexually. Though she is reluctant at first due to lack of experience, she soon comes to enjoy her liaisons with Drummond. The love builds between them, with some interesting twists threatening their relationship.

    I enjoyed this story. While it is a quick read, taking only a couple hours, it doesn’t feel short. Rather, the story is very detailed and has a well timed beginning, middle, and end.

    OMG! I LOVED this book. It’s hot and steamy, with a fully developed storyline…incredible that! It’s the first book in the six-book Archangels series. The other books, in order, are: Lady Enslaved; Lady Captive; Lady Taken; Lady Enthralled; and Lady Gambled. In this book, the story that unfolds is not only sexy, but also touching. Gabriella and Drummond were in love twenty-five years earlier, when an unbelievable act of betrayal–which had me in tears–rips the young lovers apart. Gabriella ends up married to Lord St. John, heir to an Earldom, and Drummond–who at the time was a second son of a Duke–embarks on a career as a spy for the crown. Now, twenty-five years later, Gabriella finds herself in the mortifying position of being publicly sold by her husband! When Drummond learns about the “wife sale” he is determined to have Gabriella as his own…he’s never forgotten his first love. However, once he secures possession of Gabriella he is determined to strip her of her ladylike inhibitions–Drummond refuses to be trapped in another passionless marriage. In his endeavor to release Gabriella from the chains of “proper” society, Drummond assumes the role of Dom, and demands that Gabriella submit to his will (FYI, I would not classify this as a BDSM romance, although it does include a mild aspect of BDSM.) Gabriella, not privy to Drummond’s thoughts has no idea of his hidden agenda. She just thinks he’s an autocratic male, who is intent on humiliating her further. I absolutely loved this book. The story that unfolds is not very believable, considering the events that unfold and the fact that they take place in Regency England, but that didn’t bother me in the least. I expected–and hoped–to read some hot sex in this book, the fully developed story was an added boon. LOL I highly recommend this book.

    An erotic Historical Romance, November 28, 2011
    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    My Lady Compelled is the first book in The Archangels series. It’s a series of 6 erotic historical romance books that take place in the Regency era. The Archangels group consist of 6 men who helped England by spying on the French.

    The book starts off with Lord St. John having a “wives sale”. His wife, Lady Gabriella St. John is barren and he sees no need to have her anymore as his wife. Lord Drummond Penhurst, the Duke of Kitteridge hears of this sale and names his price. Lord Drummond has always been attracted to Lady Gabriella. He thinks by taking her as his wife he can teach her how to pleasure a man properly. Little does he know Lady Gabriella has never seen a man naked or what to do with one even though she’s been married for 25 years. Lord Drummond wins the sale and starts his mission off by pleasuring Lady Gabriella three times. Lady Gabriella is in shambles after that. She has never felt or experienced anything so unbelievable in her life. She figures since she was bought and paid for that she now needs to do what he said, especially after he brought her to climax and donned her in diamonds.

    If you want a fast historical very erotic read, then this book is for you. The story line wasn’t that strong but that didn’t bother me while reading this book. I wanted a hot steamy erotic romance and that is exactly what I got. I did enjoy it and I plan to read the rest.
