Samuel Charles Aubrey St. Aldwyn, Duke of Gravenhurst, is a radical rogue and champion of unpopular causes. No one would dream that he is also the author of a best-selling series of dark historical novels, a writer accused of corrupting the morals of the public, and a master seducer who counts among his passionate fans wellborn Miss Lily Boscastle. But Lily is no stranger to disrepute.
When her engagement to another man ends in a tarnished image and public disgrace, Lily is forced to seek employment outside London - as housekeeper for Gravenhust himself. Her sharp wit and sensuality appeal to his wicked instincts, and she's a perfect match for every beguiling move he makes. Yet there's more to him than Lily imagined: a secret known to few living souls, ghosts from the past that haunt both of their futures in ways too dangerous for even the duke to have invented.

"A sinfully sexy hero with a secret, a book-obsessed heroine in search of her own happy-ever-after ending, a delightfully clever plot that takes great fun in spoofing the literary world, and writing that sparkles with wicked wit and exquisite sensuality add up to an exceptionally entertaining read worthy of 'Lord Anonymous' himself." (Booklist)
Something that isn't Jilliam Hunter
It was ok - but not great
all of it
First 10 chapters devoted to one evening. Really? I couldn't finish the book after that. Waste of money.
No. The story was kind of disjointed with pieces that didn't even seem to be part of the story.
First the narration was terrible, whiny. The story had no depth.
No, maybe the author, definitely the narrator.

I really can't say, I didn't finish it.
Can I get my credit back?
