Disappointed. I did not like the heroine. I could not relate to someone who was such a weakling. The hero was a fool for having anything to do with someone who had played him so dirty. Great narration.

Banished to Boston for causing the death of Lord Banbury, Lucas Dempsey vowed never to set foot on English soil again. But when his brother inherits the viscountcy and pleads for his return, the opportunity to show his contempt and loathing for the society who turned its back on him proves to be far too enticing to resist.

I was disappointed in this. Plot had potential which never came to be. Even the love scenes were bland. I kept waiting for it to end. Don't waste your money.

Being good has worked out very badly for Lady Olivia Archer. All she has to show for four seasons on the marriage mart is the nickname Prissy Missy. Her prospects are so bleak that her parents have betrothed her to a stranger with a dire reputation. If Phinneas Cole - aka The Mad Baron - wants a biddable bride, perhaps Olivia can frighten him off by breaking every ladylike rule.

Alistair Mabry, Marquess of Rexton, fought his way to respectability. Now the most eligible bachelor in London, marriage-shy Rexton will take only a wife with an impeccable reputation, good breeding, and a penchant for staying out of the gossip sheets. But when he strikes a deal to be seen "courting" a sweet young debutante whose notorious older sister has blemished her chances for marriage, Rexton is unexpectedly drawn to the highly inappropriate, calamitous Tillie, Lady Landsdowne herself.

I waited for this to become available and was disappointed with it. Most of these stories are similar in that the hero and heroine have some problems but work through them and end up HEA. The fun comes in the humor and with the narration which neither were present in this novel. The narrator put me to sleep. I remember the author's earlier novels being fun and entertaining.

The heroine needed to get off the pity pot. All in all, the whole novel was flat and boring.

When Lady Esme Byron happens upon a gorgeous naked man sleeping beside a secluded country lake, she can't resist the impulse to sketch him. But when her highly improper drawing is mistakenly revealed at a party, she finds her once-pristine reputation in tatters. Gabriel, Lord Northcote, may be a notorious rakehell, but he is still stunned to find himself accused of despoiling a duke's sister - especially since he's never set eyes on her.

I wonder if the author listened to the narration before it was released to the public. I read Lawrences' story before this one and it has a better narrator.

All of London is abuzz over the imminent arrival of Wulfric Bedwyn, the reclusive, cold-as-ice Duke of Bewcastle, at the most glittering social event of the season. Some whisper of a tragic love affair. Others say he is so aloof and passionless that not even the greatest beauty could capture his attention. But on this dazzling afternoon, one woman did catch the duke's eye - and she was the only female in the room who wasn't even trying.
