What happens after she is woken by his kiss? Lady Adelina Halifax has never been kissed, which honestly is the second worst thing that can happen to a young lady. Apart from being left at the altar, of course. And publicly losing her reputation. Adelina might just have ruined her first Season, earning the reputation of a fast and spoiled debutante, and ending up being jilted What happens after she is woken by his kiss? Lady Adelina Halifax has never been kissed, which honestly is the second worst thing that can happen to a young lady. Apart from being left at the altar, of course. And publicly losing her reputation. Adelina might just have ruined her first Season, earning the reputation of a fast and spoiled debutante, and ending up being jilted by her own bridegroom. But before she can accept the hated fate of a spinster she is determined to do one thing right: She will be kissed before the Season ends. But by whom? Enter Lord Burns. Golden-haired. Rich. Loyal. Kind. A war hero. Has the face and stature of Apollo. Is desperately in love with Adelina. There is just one problem: She hates the very sight of him. But it can’t be helped. She will try to swallow her distaste of the man and his proper, gentlemanly ways that force him to always want to rescue her. He will be perfect to practice kissing with, since no one else wants to. Here are the "kissing game" rules: • Lord Burns is absolutely forbidden to transform her into a proper lady. • He is absolutely forbidden to ask her to marry him. • He is absolutely forbidden to stop kissing her (until she says so). There. Now she is completely safe. What are the chances that she will end up falling desperately in love with Lord Burns while he learns to loathe the very sight of her? The very idea! Impossible. And then, the kissing begins. Emma meets The Taming of the Shrew in this hot new Regency romance. It might be more Georgette Heyer than Jane Austen, more Bridgerton than Perrault, but never fear: It will break your heart into a thousand pieces. The best books always do. Kissed is a hate-to-love-to-hate-to... Regency romance that will melt like chocolate in your mouth.

Lady Adelina Halifax, heiress, wild child and scandal, hides a great deal of pain behind her bad behaviour. In turns, neglected by her aristocratic parents, abused by the regime at her dreadful boarding school and then orphaned. Never believing herself worthy of love, she settles for getting attention in any way possible. She wants a suitor, but definitely not Lord Burns! He is a close friend of her guardian, always there, always gentlemanly, seemingly always present when Adelina embarrasses herself. Like a boring elder brother. Will Adelina learn to appreciate him? And if she does, will he want her? I have to say that I struggled with this. Adelina is probably a very accurate portrait of the sort of self destructive behaviour, damaged people can display, but wow, was she hard work! Lord Burns expression of unrequited love was so dramatic! Too much torment, inability to breath and bursting into tears! That said, the book has many redeeming features and well drawn characters. An honourable mention for Malificent the corgi, who is adorable. I received a free copy of this book via StoryOrigin and am voluntarily leaving a review. All views expressed are my own.

    Wow! I need a moment to recover from the emotional rollercoaster ride this book took me on. It had me crying, squealing, curling up in a ball, laughing, and swooning at multiple points. I was so moved by Burns' and Adelina's battles with their own inner demons (or dragons), so drawn into the devotion that Burns has for Adelina no matter how many times she hurts him, so touched as I watched Adelina grow, change, and evolve from a broken and hurt girl who keeps self-sabotaging to a woman who realiz Wow!

I loved reading about the friendship between Adelina and Giselle. Frank's writing is incredibly lyrical, poetic, and moving. I mean, despite the "clean" heat rating of this book, it had me fanning myself simply from the wonderful emotional descriptions that she included. This was not a book with a typical plot, I would say it's definitely more of a book with a deeply touching emotional storyline where two characters grow. Also, Burns' diary entries were excellent. I'm so happy I received an ARC of this book. All opinions are mine.

    I’m giving this a 4 star review for a couple reasons: ⭐️ I had to skim it, and will definitely be going back to read more in depth. ⭐️For those who have or currently struggle with mental health or loved somebody you has, it may be triggering. You may have to judge when you read based off of where you’re at mentally. It also gives a little light and hope that you aren’t fighting those dragons alone.

It’s unique, especially for a regency romance. The author has a gift for portraying mental health struggles and wrote her characters in an admirably vulnerable light that most authors aren’t able to portray so well. In doing so she put a beautifully authentic piece of herself into the book that is priceless. That piece makes it extra special, more than just a story. An important and beautiful read. It’s refreshing, honest, and definitely has a place on my bookshelf.😊

    This book has reinforced my love for historical romance! The main character, Adeline, is a witty, caring (but doesn't like to show it) character. Her love and hate relationship with Charles Burns is hot and interesting. This book was well written and easy to read. It shows how crazy people judged others for their failures and how much I wouldn't like the society. This book has reinforced my love for historical romance!

    Move over, Mr Darcy, hello Lord Burns If The Christmas Kiss was but a mouthwatering snippet, Kissed was the full-fledged emotional rollercoaster. I was glad I re-read the part of the original regency novella as it transpired that Lord Burns (who reminded me very much of Mr Darcy) has been keeping a heart-wrenching diary!

I loved how Frank turns a gregarious OTT character like Adelina around and makes the reader feel for her plight. Some elements reminded me of The Taming of the Shrew, but set in Regency England. Adelina’s loneliness leapt off the page & made me think of the true value of having close friends who lift you up & are always there for you. Adelina’s & Charles’ growing pains & their see-saw frenemies to lovers relationship follows the traditional romantic arc, with the addition of the dark & tortured undertones. My heart went out for both of the MCs even when they were making poor choices. The kissing scenes are delicious but clean. The genre demands that lack of communication must be an issue in the plot, so I’m happy to admit that I wanted to strangle Lord Burns at times. In true M.C. Frank’s tradition, we do have hope & redemption & a HEA, but the road there is swoonworthy and winding. Recommended for lovers of clean regency romance with dark undertones and HEAs. Trigger warning: parts of the story might be difficult to read for survivors of abuse & for those who have PTSD.

    Adelina is considered spoiled, having a bad reputation now and bound herself to a future as a spinster. But she will have one thing before she goes head long into that future: her first kiss. And the man to give it to her? Charles Burns, a man she despises, who is head over heels for her. But maybe he's not as bad as she thought, and maybe she's worse than he thought. Can the pair maybe have a forever together or are they too broken?

I was not expecting to like this book as much as I did, or get slapped with emotions as much as I did. Charles and Adenlina have trauma that the reader wouldn't necessarily expect and it's heartbreaking to see them deal with it. I fell in love with Charles's character and just his adoration for her. He truly loved her and was the best thing in the world for her. There is a theme of mental illness in this book, and while the author portrayed it well, be mindful of triggers. Adelina was too bratty for me. She had these expectations that were far beyond what she deserved and I just could not relate to her whatsoever.

Though she was left at the altar, labeled a brat and has never been kissed. Though the one person she can’t stand, Lord Burns is in love with her. He’s everything she needs but won’t allow it. She’s desperate to be kissed so they come up with rules to follow. As she slowly falls in love with him, he’s growing further away from her. Can she show him her live before it’s too late? I received this arc and am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.

    This is a new author for me and I have to give her kudos for her willingness to deal with some very serious subjects. I found myself NOT wanting to finish this book for the first few chapters. I was ready to throttle the Heroine with her self-centered ,destructive behavior. But I promised myself to finish it and as it went along I realized where she was going with the storyline.

It is a difficult story to read and a hard one to put down after you get through the first quarter of the book. I found the hero to be an honorable, but rather needy man and some of his diary entries made me want to smack some sense into him. ( I am not a normally violent person, but these two got under my skin). It is worth the read, but left me rather depressed throughout the book. Not a fluffy read if that is what you are searching for. Some may be triggered by it with abuse, mental health and PTSD. A good book if you are willing to wallow in pain for awhile

This is a hate - love Regency romance that is super emotional and deals with many personal issues such as abuse, trauma, depression, mental illness and PTSD. Parts of the story seemed drawn out, but were important to the storyline. Worth the read. I received an ARC of this book from the author in return for voluntarily writing an honest review.

His PTSD is also very crucial in their story. This book had my crying a lot because I can relate. Thank you M.C. Frank for showing these diseases are real and shall not be dismissed.

I truly felt sorry for Charles who does not only have to sort out is post war life but whose love is constantly rejected by Adelina. In my opinion there are more than enough selfish and ruthless people in this world, so I surely don´t want to read about them in my leisure time.

    Concept is good. I liked a lot of the plot, but the characters weren't as engaging as they could have been. It took me until well towards the middle of the book to connect with the FMC. The MC seems extremely dramatic. He could be stronger. There are a few historically inaccurate moments for the time period, but overall the series has a lot of potential. I didn't realize I was reading book 4 of a series or that I had book 3 in my library. I am enjoying book 3–apparently I am reading backward chr Concept is good.

    This is the first book I have read from this author and I am not sure I will read anymore, purely because it started so slowly and took forever to get really interesting. I truly disliked the female lead because she was so mean, especially to those who loved her. I thought the male lead should have toughened up a bit and not cried every time Adelina was mean. I think they could show emotion without tearing up so much.

    MC Frank has a winner of a book here. You can't help but feel sorry for the head male character and want to slap the lead female character in my opinion. It is this kind of tension that just leads you in as a reader into the world of debutantes, a girl's dream. I mean dress-up, dances, and meet guys, umm yeah! So put all of this into the recipe and you have an enchanting read that you can't put down. MC Frank has a winner of a book here.

    My favorite part of this story is how realistic it is. If you're looking for an emotional read, then this is it. You'll feel like you are right there when you read this story.

Can I be Adelina in this tale and steal away Burns? I'd recommend Kissed to anyone who loves regency romances and wants to read about raw, real female character, and a swoon-worthy Lord. Thank you to the author for providing me with a review copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
