    About "Elise de Sallier"

      • Elise de Sallier

        Elise began her lifelong obsession with the romance and paranormal genres when she was far too young to be reading either After than thirty years of marriage to her very own romantic hero, she now knows great relationships don t just happen, they take work which doesn t mean writing about them can t be a whole lot of fun Elise likes to see her characters grow, experience passion and adventure, tackle some difficult issues, and find lasting love eventually.


    1. 3.75 starsThis story had a lot of sweet aspects to it and was low stress. I mostly enjoyed it. The hero, William, was definitely the highlight of the book. He was the brooding, tortured type with a soft marshmallow heart. He really adored the heroine, Hannah, and in the second half, he completely doted on her. One thing I didn't like was that the heroine was considered plain. Several times in the first half of the story, William would think about how she wasn't considered a great beauty (like he [...]

    2. Before reading:Historical with both h and H virgins? Plus it has sort of beauty and the beast feel to it? I'm reading it next!After reading:This book was so sweet! I really liked it, the fact that there was no stupid drama whatsoever and couple stayed strong through the whole book. They get to know each other, fell in love, then there was married life and how they dealt with the whole curse. Although I was annoyed with some of the drama that happened regarding curse, I could understand where bot [...]

    3. HAPPY RELEASE DAY!!!I loved this. That could be my entire review, right there. But I need to gush a bit more. This historical novel had everything that I want in that genre. A wounded hero. A woman with a backbone and caring heart. A bit of angst as I wonder if they will overcome the obstacles that stand in their way of true love. Ah, yesis was wonderful. Hannah is "on the shelf." She's been labelled a spinster by everyone in the village and her family. It doesn't sit well, but she's given up on [...]

    4. The title of this book is so very apt!!! :)I wanted to read this book for some years and I’ve finally managed! I’m happy to say that it was good! :)A very easy to read and relaxing romance without much angst and denying! The story is straitforward and heartwarming and both the hero and the heroine were good and decent people!Hannah, the heroine, was a competent and heardwarking girl with a big hart! William, the hero, was such a big bear with soft hart!Their story strated while Hannah was nu [...]

    5. Scarred military vet with dark past nursed back to health by a savvy vicar's daughter just sounded too good to pass up. I hadn't read this author before and was keen to try something new in my historical romance. I was duly impressed by the author's writing. There was a hint of the gothic right alongside social issues of the time next to an unusual, fun heated romance.The story opens when William, the Viscount Blackthorn, comes home. He is near death from wounds sustained in the war and is not o [...]

    6. Oh dear Lord! What a delightful story! I literally devoured this!The characters leap off the page, and though, in hindsight, I reckon the pace of this book is rather slow, when reading, you really do not realize and just become immersed in the plot and the characters.Both William and Hannah were relatable characters, and Ms. de Sallier painted them both with strengths and weaknesses, with faults and virtue. In short, wholesome characters that feel real, people you could've met if you lived in th [...]

    7. Verbose in its narcissistic triteness, insufferable in its cardboardness and vacuity ( posing as 'correctness' in gender etiquette, naturally). Hours wasted never to be regained. More detailed and condemning review of this anachronistic pile of horse manure to follow.

    8. When Viscount William Blackthorn returns home, he never imagines that he will live out the week. Wounded to the point doctors wanted to amputate his arm, William expects to die in the graveyard where his parents are buried. The voice of an angel calls to him and he follows it into the nearby church where he finds his childhood friend, Hannah Foster.At seven and twenty, the vicar's eldest daughter, Hannah, is considered a spinster. When she finds her old friend in such a state, Hannah doesn't thi [...]

    9. This is probably one of my favorite historical romances I have read this year. It features a wounded, scarred, virgin hero and a spinster vicar’s daughter who is two years his senior. They are socially mismatched. They must fight a family curse. The odds are all stacked against them. But in William’s entire life, no one has ever loved him but Hannah. And he has never cared for anyone as he cared for the childhood friend who accepted him when everyone else turned their back. (I’m starting t [...]

    10. Passion and Propriety is a very well-written and deeply felt romance, a perfect blend of strong characters, interesting story and a passionate relationship. I absolutely loved this book and recommend it highly for everyone who loves historical romance.You can read my full review at Romantic Historical Reviews

    11. My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the book for more, visit Punya ReviewsI’ll start by stating that I really enjoyed Passion and Propriety by Elise De Sallier. This is also the first in the Hearts of Honour series, certainly quite the strong start to a new series! Even though, at times, the author’s writing style seemed a bit too heavy for my liking, it didn’t deter my enjoyment completely.Passion and Propriety tells the story of two childhood friends [...]

    12. This review was first posted on Babblings of a Bookworm: babblingsofabookworm.William, Viscount Blackthorn has lived a horribly unhappy life. He was born to a cursed family, meaning that his mother died giving birth to him, like the previous 5 or so generations. His father was a lecherous alcoholic and had nothing but hatred and venom for his son. The neighbourhood despised and feared the family and he met with kindness only from the servants in his house and his only childhood playmate. As soon [...]

    13. Let's cut straight to the chase here, because if you've read my reviews of our authors other books Innocence and Protection, you'll know I abso-blooming-lutely LOVE her writing. And it's no difference with her latest offering, Passion and Propriety. Without further ado, I'm going to jump straight in and tell you what I thought, although, in all honesty, you should probably go and one-click first because I'm reckoning that by the time you've read this you'll be ready to lock yourself away in a se [...]

    14. Review of Passion and Propriety by Elise deSallierI first became acquainted with the work of Elise deSallier when she was writing some of the highest caliber fan fiction I have ever read; her stories were positively addicting, and as I wrote review after glowing review, we began to correspond, especially regarding our experiences with chronic illness. Then she republished my favorite fan fiction story, A Forbidden Love in two parts: Innocence and Protection. A few weeks ago, I reviewed these two [...]

    15. Spoiler AlertFirst of all Congratulations on this new adventure, you've done such a great work I didn't doubt this would be any less. Ok, William, William, William. *sighs dreamily*At first I saw William as an old big Teddy bear with a missing eye and an arm and leg hanging by its thread, that needed a big hug and you want to cuddle him to show him the love he missed for many years!! And then how cute was he at his blushing and feeling embarrass to have Hanna care for him and then now the knight [...]

    16. What first drew me to this book was the fact that both leads were virgins, not just the girl. I was intrigued by this break away from the "rake" stereotype. What I got was a very enjoyable romance that I enjoyed to the hilt. The connection between Hannah and William is very palpable. From the beginning, it's a relationship that defies societal norms and a tragic curse to become a strong and respecting bond between two scarred individuals. The author takes a lot of time to develop the actual roma [...]

    17. This is book 1 in the Hearts of Honour series.Finding her childhood friend almost dead in the local cemetery, Hannah Foster decides it is her job to nurse the wounded Viscount Blackthorn back to health. Being a confirmed spinster, Hannah doesn't see anything wrong with her staying at his home with the elderly servants.Coming home to die, William is surprised to find himself still alive with an angel tending his wounds. Determined to end the curse that has plagued his family for generations, he f [...]

    18. Elise de Sallier is a master at Regency era romance! In an age where even a furtive glance was considered scandalous, this story conveys believable sexual tension while staying true to the time and setting.In Passion and Propriety, the first book of Ms. de Sallier’s new Hearts of Honour series, we find William Blackthorn, the Viscount of Blackthorn Manor, returning from war to presumably die from the wounds he received in battle. But before he can even make it to his childhood home that he’d [...]

    19. “Passion and Propriety” is my kind of historical romance. Both the story and the protagonists are incredibly sweet, with the hero and heroine trying to look after each other from the beginning and both undervaluing their own worth. I really liked that – while the hero and heroine are both good looking people – they seem to find each other more attractive than anyone else finds them to be. The story is largely a marriage-of-convenience plot, with the heroine nursing the hero on his deathb [...]

    20. What a nice Regency romance, but not the typical London balls/ton/entertainments type. This one takes place in a small village and our heroine is the vicar's eldest daughter, 27-year-old spinster Hannah. When she finds William, Lord Blackthorn, collapsed and suffering from recent war injuries, she nurses him back to health, but not without scandal among the townsfolk. This book spends less time on action and a lot more time in character building, which is refreshing and enjoyable. Because of the [...]

    21. I was given this book to read in exchange for an honest review and I'm so happy I was!No one can write historical romance like Elise de Sallier. The flow of the language, the description of the settings, the essence of the period—she does it perfectly.I love all her books, but had a hard time putting this one down. When my kindle ran out of battery, I sat beside it, tapping my fingers waiting for it to return to life, so I could keep reading.The story between William and Hannah was beautifully [...]

    22. I really don’t know where to begin except………I LOVED this book!!!! And if you know me you know this is a genre that I almost NEVER read. But I got hooked on Elise’s writing after reading Innocence, so much that I immediately read Protection. And then I jumped up and down with excitement when I got to read Passion and Propriety early.I am such a big fan of Elise’s now, especially since her writing has lured me into reading books I don’t normally read!Beauty and the Beast has always b [...]

    23. I really enjoyed this, and Elise de Sallier is fast becoming one of my favourite authors. I love a good bodice-ripper, and this reminded me very much of the series I enjoy by Courtney Milan, Tessa Dare and others. It’s well-written with interesting, fleshed-out characters the reader can feel for. There is UST in spades, and it's nicely done with lots of good showing rather than telling.William is just lovely. The absence of love in his childhood made him prickly at the start, but Hannah's cari [...]

    24. I finished this Amazing story with a sense of joy and love in my heart.William Blackthorn comes home after a decade convinced his has done so to die.Hannah Foster the Vicar's daughter,convinced a life of spinsterhood is on the cards.Life has other ideas.I thoroughly enjoyed this story.The characters, some loveable ,others you can't help but dislike,take you on a journey that will help you believe that with Love,all things are possible.I highly recommend this story to all lovers of historical Rom [...]

    25. Passion and Propriety was excellent, the promise Elise de Sallier has shown in her previous work came to fruition in this outstanding Regency. The Viscount of Blackthorn returned home, something he swore never to do, to die. Gravely wounded his refusal to allow the sawbones to amputate his arm was tantamount to a death sentence. He is drawn to the village church recognizing his childhood playmate Hannah Foster daughter of the vicar. When Hannah discovers him collapsed near death in the graveyard [...]

    26. I really liked this novel! Two characters that see themselves as flawed, but not the other. A whirlwind love match that they didn't expect, and a lot of sweetness. I spent most of the novel trying to figure out whose side I was on. First Hannah's, but as soon as William brought up his fears I realized that of course he had good reason for those as well, and so I went two and fro between the two. I'm excited to read the novels that will come after Grace's story, and of course that of Hannah's two [...]

    27. Original review here: offbeatvagabond/2014/08/passion-and-propriety-blog-tour-bookmlPassion and Propriety is a story that follows a man named William. William has a death wish. He has come home from the war and has little interest on continuing life. He is covered wit scars and injuries that won't heal and wants to be left alone. But all of that changes when his childhood friend, Hannah, finds him on the brink of death. Instead of listening to the rumors of William's cursed family, she gets clos [...]

    28. Excellent debut for the Hearts of Honour series!I love historical romances, especially the ones set in the Regency era. I really enjoyed Passion and Propriety, written by Elise de Sallier.It's the first story in her new series Hearts of Honour. It's the charming romantic story of Hannah and William, two lovable and rich characters.I always find, that stories with wounded characters, are usually filled with strong emotions, which I love so much! This author is new for me and I will surely watch h [...]

    29. As I've said before, Ms. de Sallier knows how to write historical romances.This one, told from third person point of view, was about the unlikely relationship that blossomed between William Blackthorn, an English viscount, and Hannah Foster, the eldest daughter (a self-proclaimed spinster) of the village vicar. One of the main points of conflict of the book is borne about from the so-called Blackthorn Curse. So then how do these two get together? Read and find out.Looking forward to the story of [...]

    30. Not normally a fan of "God"/church in books, and that featured heavily here. Still rated it high because the story was good and the faith parts were part of the landscape.
