Return to Book Page. When Bow Street Inspector Joseph Stapleton is sent to Oxfordshire to help the daughter of an earl, little does he know how the mission will affect him personally. Lady Evelyn Williams must marry within weeks, but she has never met a gentleman of the ton whom she would even consider as a potential husband.
Then she encounters the brave, handsome man from London. It is the conclusion -- for now -- of the Kellington series of Regency romances. This book contains explicit language and adult situations. You won't like this book if you don't like either of those two things. It's a little bit of history and a lot of explicit language and adult situations.

Never Turn Away (Kellington, book 6) by Maureen Driscoll
Evelyn requires Josph to assist her locating a suitable husband, preferably in the country but in London if necessary. Evelyn also tells Joseph that the male cousin her fortune would go to is unscrupulous and possibly forged the document stating he would inherit, she also tells him that her family would like her to marry one of her more lecherous and untrustworthy cousins, giving him control of the fortune.
Though their growing attraction makes the task distasteful, Evelyn dutifully arranges outings with local suitors that include Joseph so he can provide input. When the local suitor are found lacking and life threatening accidents begin to occur with alarming frequency, Evelyn and Joseph make their way to London. As usual for the series, Evelyn's family is definitely not nice as they do their best to warn Joseph away, admonishing him against compromising her reputation as they push for their desired candidate.

After being adopted by the Kellington siblings, Joseph had to know his bachelor days were numbered, it wouldn't take long to ensnare Joseph in the throes of wedded bliss. I liked the cleverness of getting Joseph and Evelyn together, but found little mention of the actual problem affecting both estates. Some of the new secondary characters were interesting and amusing, unfortunately wouldn't be seen again, like the owner of the local store trying to sell Joseph a tonic for his vitality.
It was also amusing as the country suitors each challenged Joseph to an outrageous show of masculinity. I liked that the Kellingtons were each around for the final good-bye but missed their meddling throughout the story. Also, it was a tad puzzling that with Evelyn's looks and fortune drew few suitors as they were in the height of the winter season. As a series whole, the writing style is reminiscent of a time gone by. Flirtatious glances that say so much more, a single gloved touch or glimpse of a throat set your chosen's body aflame make this an easy and comfortable read for curling up or laying out on the beach.
While the writing was a major draw, I also loved the vividly drawn characters that felt like old friends and quick pace of the read. I despised the covers, which were not my taste. Unfortunately no other installments have been announced for this series, so this is either goodbye to Kellingtons, or see you much later. I hope it's the latter. As a parting gift, a few interesting deleted scenes were tucked in behind the epiloge. March 12, Rating: Nov 27, Melanie rated it it was amazing. I looked forward to this story as much as I dreaded it; it was finally time for our Stapleton, the infamous Bow Street Runner to have his HEA, but it is also to be a last Kellington book; not what I was looking forward to.
The plot was well-developed and executed with clues to the villain well hidden; every c I looked forward to this story as much as I dreaded it; it was finally time for our Stapleton, the infamous Bow Street Runner to have his HEA, but it is also to be a last Kellington book; not what I was looking forward to. She had responded by telling him he would be better served with more time spent in a library and less time dispensing asinine advice. Did Anna or Marida paint the cow? It is my mother.
Thanks for coming over to finish reading this review Sep 01, Teresa rated it liked it. I enjoyed this novel by Maureen Driscoll. It wasn't as good as the previous one I'd read, but still worth my time reading. I enjoyed both characters and found the arch of their romance believable. I also enjoyed the supporting cast and the plot line. Lady Evelyn was a strong female character and wasn't wishy washy in her decisions.
I liked her interactions with Joseph and appreciated how the author used their strong mindedness to be an asset to the relationship, rather than a hindrance. I would I enjoyed this novel by Maureen Driscoll. I would like to at some point back-track and read the other novels in this series. Nov 18, Tracy Emro rated it it was amazing. The writing was wonderful, the plot believable, and the love scenes were hot - what more could you want??
It was great watching them fall in love and it was wonderful to catch up with the Kellington siblings.

I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys historical romance. There are six books in this series and each one is different and unique - not the same story slightly altered that so often happens in series novels. Maureen Driscoll is an author worth reading and I look forward to her next series!!
Feb 14, Emily Rose rated it it was amazing. This was a great installment in the Kellington series, and I hope it isn't the last. I get the feeling that we will see a book about Ridgeway the guy who openly admitted he needed to marry for money and was quite charming about it. As for this book, I thought the plot was interesting and engaging, and the love between the hero and heroine was very believable. I also liked the fact that the heroine was purposely looking for a husband that wasn't part of the ton. That really made the story uniq This was a great installment in the Kellington series, and I hope it isn't the last.
That really made the story unique. Seeing more of the Kellington siblings was a nice treat as well.
Nov 23, Jo Ann rated it really liked it. What a great book to end the series on! Joseph and Evelyn are a wonderful couple, the chemistry between them jumps off the page! As always, Ms Driscoll gives her characters such a great sense of humor. The banter between Joseph and Evelyn when they're untangling the ewe is priceless.

It was actually most of the books are your typical Regency romance with a delightfully headstrong miss, and a rakish hero, with a villain or two thrown in for good measure. The plot lines are also typical but amusing and never boring even if you do think in your head, "Oh, don't do that, you're going to get kidnapped And, of course, she does. My one warning for gentle readers is that the explicit sex in these books escalates to somewhat graphic and that could turn some off. I'm looking forward to more by Ms. I had not read this author before and found her novel to be quite entertaining. First and foremost this is a love story.
It stars two very interesting protagonists, a bow street runner, Joseph Stapleton and a kind noblewoman, Lady Evelyn Williams. These leads are simply perfect for each other. From their first meeting they genuinely like each other. No I-hate-you-but-want-you antics, no game playing, no lying to themselves about their wants and desires.
So, " 0 prequel " sorts by 0 under the label "prequel. Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such see Wikipedia: Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place.
Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg. Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
