Passion Wears Pearls book. This is the fourth book in the Jaded Gentlemen series and, as always, Ms Bernard captivated me with her authentic story, intriguing characters, witty dialogue and sensual romance.

Passion Wears Pearls book. Josiah Hastings has one wish before his eyesight finally fails – to paint a masterpiece that will bring him immortality – but he has found nothing to stir his soul and give him the impetus to paint.

Passion Wears Pearls by Renee Bernard is a sensual and erotic Victorian romance with a strong message about how . The stories continue as the next "jaded" gentleman (and artist) Josiah Hastings meets up with Miss Eleanor Beckett by rescuing her from an apparent kidnapping.

Passion Wears Pearls by Renee Bernard is a sensual and erotic Victorian romance with a strong message about how damaging greed can be to the innocent and pride can be to a loving relationship. The characters are well developed and the writing is descriptive (also sexually explicit) with a steady flow. Left destitute by her parents' death, Miss Beckett agrees to be his model for what he believes to be his last painting. Delightfully, the romance carefully and slowly blooms between the two.

Raves for the Jaded Gentleman Novels. The always original Bernard delivers another Jaded Gentleman to his fate: a wonderfully engaging, independent, and sassy heroine. A well-written, tender historical starring two superb protagonists, who may learn too late that love may be blind to the knowledge of what the other cherishes. Bernard creates a delightfully passionate romance, but the verbal sparring between her characters is the key to the story’s enchantment and the powerful feminist overtones will capture readers’ attention. The story line flowed very well.

Revenge Wears Rubies. Set in Victorian London, this is the Final Book in the Acclaimed Jaded Gentleman Series by Renee Bernard! The shy soldier and self-appointed guardian of the Jaded, Michael Rutherford, is faced with the ultimate test of his loyalty and honor when he meets the woman who is at once his perfect match and the worst choice he could ever make.

After the darkness of a dungeon in India, artist Josiah Hastings found that years of imprisonment left his eyesight weak and failing.

  • Hmmm. Well, the language, as seems to often be the case in most of these recent "historical" romances, was a bit off putting. Extremely inconsistent, both in the time period portrayed, and in and of itself. Its like it was written by several different people, with no editor to bring it all together.
    The language was a real distraction for me, skipping back and forth, willy nilly, between modern words, phrases, thoughts, and actions, then to more period accurate narratives and conversations.
    Language aside, there were so many hard to believe points in this one, it didnt make make much sense. Really? A virgin in London, 1860, not only has an affair, but half the city knows about it, and heartily approves? And, I may as well say it, for a shy, timid virgin, she really caught on quick! Then, we have Josiah, who is going blind, but takes so little interest in the fact, that he doesnt bother to even see a doctor? And, of course, we have to include another Scooby Doo Mystery for whatever reason it is that makes romance writers so often think thats just what it needs.
    But, none of that can hold a candle to the way over the top sex scenes. Page after page after page of, well, the same thing over and over. For miles and miles, nothing far as the eye can see, but sex, and more sex.
    If thats what youre after in your afternoon romance, this should do it for you. It just really missed the mark for me.

  • The fourth entry in the Jaded series was just okay in my opinion. Josiah, the pearl-owning, former rake-hell member of the Jaded is going blind even as he pursues his passion as a painter. Eleanor is a down-on-her-luck middle class girl whose now-deceased father imbued in her the upper class dictates of what it meant to be a proper lady. Josiah is desperate to paint one grand painting before the darkness descends and Eleanor becomes his muse.

    I think Renee Bernard is a good writer but for some reason this book didn't grab me as much as did the previous books in this series or her Black Rose trilogy. While all of the usual elements were there, I just didn't feel the chemistry between Josiah and Eleanor. There was a bit too much of his insistence on maintaining his pride in the face of his impending blindness and too many of Eleanor's protestations of propriety even as Josiah is lifting her skirts. It all became more repetitive than moving or sincere.

    If you are a reader of Ms. Bernard's other works then you know that sex plays a big part of the story. I generally don't have a problem with that, but this is the first of her books where the numerous sex scenes felt more like 'filler' rather than necessary elements to move the story along.

    Of course there is the secondary plot of the members of the Jaded being threatened by some unknown person or persons demanding the return of some treasure they are believed to have stolen during their time in India. This is the thread that binds this series of stories together, but it received the shortest treatment ever in this book. As a matter of fact, the other members of the
    Jaded are almost nonexistent in this book as they make very few and very brief appearances.

    Bottom line: Passion Wears Pearls is not bad, but it's not great either. The potential was high for a good, angst-filled romance, but it just didn't do it for me.

  • Passion Wears Pearls by Renee Bernard is a sensual and erotic Victorian romance with a strong message about how damaging greed can be to the innocent and pride can be to a loving relationship. The characters are well developed and the writing is descriptive (also sexually explicit) with a steady flow. The thread of danger that began in the first book is still lurking in the background, yet to be resolved.

    Miss Eleanor Beckett is a prim and proper young woman, alone in the world and trying to eke out an honest living as a seamstress. Unfortunately, her employer has a hidden agenda that includes Miss Beckett's virtue.

    Enter Mr. Josiah Hastings. He's a complicated and tormented wealthy artist on the brink of blindness who's living a Bohemian lifestyle when he becomes Eleanor Beckett's personal savior and hope to stay off the cold winter streets of London.

  • This is such a fun series to read. The stories continue as the next "jaded" gentleman (and artist) Josiah Hastings meets up with Miss Eleanor Beckett by rescuing her from an apparent kidnapping. Left destitute by her parents' death, Miss Beckett agrees to be his model for what he believes to be his last painting. Delightfully, the romance carefully and slowly blooms between the two. As in the previous books is the ever-present evil that shadows all the jaded gentlemen and has interrupted and threatened each of their lives and prevents Josiah from moving forward with Eleanor. Again, well-wrought characters, perfect pitch settings and dialogue and the gritty reality of mid-1800's England puts me right into the book and holds me to the end. Highly recommended for any who fancies historical England and a fine HEA.

  • This book is the 4th in a series and continues the overarching storyline from the previous books. However, like the earlier books, this entry focuses on another of the group of friends who are known as "the Jaded Gentlemen ". I enjoyed the individual storyline and the continued story, although I felt that the heroine could have been developed a bit more. I am looking forward to the conclusion of the mystery that has been running through the series. An enjoyable story overall, it does contain some violence and sexual scenes, for those who like to know those things.
