    1. Lady Decadence (Furies # 3) by Wendy LaCapra is a 2015 Entangled ( Scandalous) publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. What a bummer. This is the last book in the Furies trilogy! I am so sad to see it end, but Thea Marie and Wyn's story is an awesome way to bring the series to a close. Before you start reading this one, I must say that unlike some series or trilogies, that can normally be read as stand alone novels, I highl [...]


    2. 4 1/2 Stars Author Wendy LaCapra is one of the newer voices in historical romance and she is most definitely one of those voices worth paying attention to. THE FURIES SERIES is a fascinating and entertaining trilogy about three best friends who have stood up for one another through their tragedies and triumphs. This third book, DUCHESS DECADENCE, is emotionally charged with loss and indifference then hope and maturity.Thea Worthington, the Duchess of Wynchester has been estranged from her husban [...]


    3. I liked this more than I thought I would!! I loved Thea and Wyn and how they worked through their problems. I had some apprehensions at the start but it worked out well. Though, I wasnt a fan of the subplot with the duke's murderous and treasonous brother.


    4. My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the book for more, visit Punya ReviewsDuchess Decadence brings the conclusion to Wendy LaCapra’s fabulous the Furies series. I’ve enjoyed all the previous installments and glad to report that the final book didn’t disappoint! I’ve been intrigued by Wyn, the Duke of Wynchester and Thea, his Duchess’s “past” since the beginning of this series. Now that I’ve finished it, I can see why they were chosen to grace [...]


    5. Ms. LaCapra’s continues her Furies series with this third and last instalment and let me just say this: I adored it!She consistently manages to surprise and delight this reader.I am now firmly in this author’s corner and anxiously await her next series.Ever since her début ‘Lady Vice’, which was one of the best debuts I’ve read in a long time, she has impressed me with her effortless prose and I’ll forever equate her books to late, great Kathleen E. Woodiwiss and her wonderful prose [...]


    6. Duchess Decadence is a well written story about a Duchess who sets out to mend her marriage with her Duke in order to protect him from his nefarious, back from the dead brother.Thea Marie learns that her horrible brother in law, whom everyone thought was dead, is actually alive and might be a traitor to the crown and a murdered. With the help of her friends, The Furies, and their significant others, Thea Marie loses a bet with her husband and goes home with the intent to protect him (Without his [...]


    7. Wow. Wendy did it again. She got me hooked! I thought I was already hooked by its synopsis but no, you just had to read it to get even more enthralled with this story.Wyn and Thea are just the best. They’re like ice and fire, opposites that have to work on their “nice” skills, and yet they burn like ecstasy and huddle close for warmth in each others’ company.So we start off the story with Thea losing a whole lot of gold coins in a card game and knowing that that was the last of her livin [...]


    8. I received an eARC of the book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I really liked the burb of this book and while I went into the book knowing that it was the third book in a series, I had still hoped that it would and could be treated as a standalone and I wasn’t disappointed. While the first few chapters were self-explanatory, there were still tidbits that pointed to events in the previous stories that could have been with a little backstory! Historical romance is always a touch a [...]


    9. Posted on What I'm ReadingWe all know there are some series where you can pick up in a middle of series and you would be fine, well this isn't one of them. Truth be told, you are going to need to read the first books. I have read the first one, I haven't gotten the second one yet. Anyway, each of the stories build upon one another, so there is valuable information.We have been building for the return of Wyn and Thea Marie's reunion. *Spoiler if you haven't read the previous books* Thea wasn't pl [...]


    10. I have read all books in this series. I thoroughly enjoyed Lady Vice and Lady Scandal, but I will say Duchess Decadence is my favourite. I adored Thea and Wyn together. The banter between the duchess and her duke was heart warming, sweet, and sensual. I loved Theae was so vulnerable to Wyn, yet this strong and sassy heroine who was willing to do all to protect and win the affection of the man she loves. Nothing about her disappointed me, and as I turned the pages I fell more and more in love wit [...]


    11. Duchess Decadence is the third and final novel in Wendy LaCapra's Furies trilogy. An intrigue plot thread carries though out the books in this series linking all the works and characters nicely. This author's sophisticated story construction and well-honed writing style make reading her work a pleasure. Ms. LaCapra compassionately demonstrates to her audience the rebuilding of a tragedy fraught, broken relationship by interspersing moments of vulnerability and strength. The connection between th [...]


    12. Charming! 4.5 starsI received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a an honest review!When I requested this book, Duchess Decadence, at NetGalley, I didn't realize that is was the third story, in Wendy LaCapra's trilogy Furies. At first, I felt lost, but finally got interested, because I had read the first story titled Lady Vice. It's the story of Thea Worthington, Duchess of Wynchester, who hides from the pain deep within her, of the loss of a babe she never held in her arms. Not [...]


    13. The book starts with the leads Thea Marie and Wyn (The Duchess and Duke of Wynchetser) separated. There was a tragic loss prior to the start of the story, and thoughtless words stated afterwards along with other issues causes their separation. The story was one filled with angst and romance and danger and intrigue as a villain whose vile actions are uncovered in the book is absolutely evil personified. Wyn is a wonderful character he is a sensitive man who tries to be strong and true, to restore [...]


    14. This is book three in the "Furies" series and it might be a good ideal to read this series in order. Just because some of their story starts back in the other series. Our herione is Thea, Worthington, Duchess of Wynchester has lost her baby and that has taken it toll on her marriage. Thea has put her time into the social scene and into some gambling. But now her husband has come to get back with her and for all purpose try to mend their broken marriage. They both have a lot to overcome and feeli [...]


    15. This series is one of the best I have ever read. This installment is the resolution to the mystery of Kasai and it was brilliant. Eustace is such a disgusting, vile villain. The Furies, as always, were fierce and entertaining. Wyn and Thea's story is so heartbreaking and so sweet. It was a joy to watch them find their way back to each other after all they'd been through, together and separately. This was definitely my favorite out of the series but the entire story is one of the best I have ever [...]


    16. Wendy LaCapra does it again! Wow! What a great ending to The Furies Series! I hate to see this series end. This book has it all. One very hot and handsome Duke. Steamy love scenes. Duchess of Vice who is willing to fight for her marriage. Intrigue, Murder, Mystery of the missing jewels, and a drool worthy romance. This book is a definite one click buy! I received an ARC from Net Galley for an honest review.



    17. I imagine it might have been a great book had I been able to read it properly. It down loaded a jumbled mess.Don't guess I can blame any thing but . Would love a chance to really read it, maybe then I could give it a favorable review.


    18. „Duchess Decadance“ by Wendy LaCapra is the 3rd novel in the „Furies“ series. I haven’t read the first two novels which kind of made hard in the beginning because there are storylines that go on, at it seems. Anyway. The leads have to be liked a lot. Thea Marie Worthington, Duchess of Wynchester prefers to gamble and not to have contact with her husband Wyn. She lives with the “furies”, her two best friends, and she gambles because she tries to hide her big loss – the loss of her [...]


    19. Duchess Decadence is the conclusion to the Furies series, which is about 3 women who banded together in support during a difficult time in their lives. Lady Vice, Lady Scandal and Duchess Decadence ran a gaming hell and became well known for their parties. This final installment of the series is my favorite, as I knew it would be.Thea Marie, known as Duchess Decadence at the Furies' soirees, is estranged from her husband, the Duke of Wynchester. Thea's back story was heartbreaking. She became es [...]


    20. The premise of this book was intriguing. The reunion story between a scandalous duchess and her staid duke; sign me up I thought! Well, not so fast. If I had done more research, I would have released this is the third book in a trilogy. As with most romance novels, it can be read as a stand-alone, however Duchess Decadence seems to pick up in the middle of the previous stories. A lot of the plot revolved around events that took place in the first two books. While the author does a good job of su [...]


    21. This is book 3 in the Furies series.Thea Worthington, the Duchess of Wynchester, ran from her marriage after her miscarriage. She has been running a high-end gaming hell with her best friends. But when her husband's life is in danger, she makes the largest bet of her life to save him.The Duke of Wynchester, Wyn, has never stopped loving his wife. When he is invited to play a game of chance with her, he jumps at the chance to get back in her life. Winning the bet and therefore the summer with his [...]


    22. This is the final book in The Furies series by Wendy La Capra and I feel cheated that I missed the previous two installments! I think Ms. La Capra has great future before her in Historical Romance, with her Alpha Heroines and her Complex Heroes involved in a richly woven story of suspense told within a sexy, seductive, yet tender Love Story. Even though "Duchess Decadence" is a stand alone novel it was obvious that a lot had transpired during the previous two books building up to this final nove [...]


    23. Posted on Les Romantiques - Le forum du siteReviewed by RinouReview Copy from the PublisherMost of the time, especially in historical romance, you can read a novel from a series without having read the previous ones with no problem. It’s not the case with Duchess Decadence. The stories of the three volumes are interlocked, and numerous parts stem directly from what happened in one of the two previous books. And the author chose to recap very few, perfect for someone who’s read the series fro [...]


    24. I was so excited to be reading a historical that I failed to realize this was the third book in a series. Wendy LaCapra did a good job of trying to fill us in on the previous books, but I still felt like I was missing something. I tried to catch up and keep reading hoping I wouldn't be too lost. Thea is a young lady that had been married to Wyn, but after they had a devastating miscarriage, they split up and went their separate ways. Thea gets mixed up in some gambling and realizes that her ex i [...]


    25. This book is the last of a series, but is easily read as a stand a lone. However I personally wish I had read the others before it. Now I know how the others finished. Thea Worthington, in reality the Duchess of Wynchester is now known to the ton as Duchess Decadence. She walked out on her husband after tragedy struck. She hides behind a happy face, and spends her time gambling . That is until she finds out her husband could be in mortal danger. She must find a way to protect him. The Duke of Wy [...]


    26. This is a historical romance novel with a lot of thrill and intrigue. Its very interesting and well written. I loved both the Duchess and Duke's characters. This is book three in Furies series. Duke of Wynchester wants his Duchess back in her home where she belongs but there are a lot of things he had done in the past he is not proud of. He fears that she will never forgive him. Thea knows that what happened was not entirely Wynchester's fault but her grief prevents her from revealing her feelin [...]


    27. this was a nice surprise a historical romance with lots of plotting, spying and forgiving involved.I just loved thea, from the moment she suggests a wager to her duke to the moment when when realises she's still in love with her duke.I found the duke very uptight at first and thought I wasn't going to like him,but as soon as thea went home with him and wyn started coming through I really started to fall for the duke.I loved their moments together, the banter between them, the way they can be the [...]


    28. This was simply a wonderful book to read. I love historical romance, but this book is so much more. It had a great mystery unfold during the book. I loved the feisty furies. They were strong, smart, and fierce when they came to making sure their men were protected. This book had Thea returning to her Duke, to save him from of all things his brother. and oh man is he one evil messed up jerk. And poor Wyn stuck between protecting his wife and trusting his brother. I loved the sweet things Wyn did [...]


    29. This is the final book in the Furies series. I have read all three books and it took me a while to remember all the plot. I highly recommend reading all of the series before starting this book. That is the downside of this series. The plot continues over all three books and it is quite involved. The mystery of the Kasai and the impact on the Furies and the men they love is a good part of plot. This book involves Thea and Wyn. They have been estranged since she lost their baby. Wyn is like a cold [...]
