Publisher's Summary

Never judge a man by his cover....

Society knows the affable Earl of Dunston for his flashy waistcoats and rapier wit. Lady Maureen Huxley knows him as Henry Thorpe, her best friend - an irresistibly kissable, strictly platonic friend. Which means her dreams of marriage, motherhood, part-time cookery, and full-time domestic bliss must be fulfilled elsewhere. But after three seasons and a parade of fickle suitors, Maureen's hopes are fading. Worse, she suspects Henry is to blame.

Never trust a man with too many secrets....

Years spent hunting his father's murderer through London's dark underworld have honed Henry Thorpe into a deadly blade with one purpose - catching a killer of fathomless evil. Nothing mattered more until Maureen Huxley came along. To keep her safe, he must keep her at arm's length. Yet he can't resist drawing her close, making her laugh, dreaming of doing wicked things to her lush body. Very well, perhaps he also dissuaded some of her suitors. But what's a little deception between friends?

Never provoke a man as dangerous as this one....

With his enemy growing bolder and Maureen contemplating marriage to another man, Henry is caught in the crossfire between his mission and his heart. Any move could exact a devastating cost. But losing the woman he loves is one price he refuses to pay.

Contains mature themes.

Great series

Lots of emotion for me in this one. I just wanted to smack the main female, Maureen. Good thing she lived in the 1800s, cuz girls today would eat her alive and take that hunky man from her. Lol
Really, it’s a great series and one I will definitely hear again and again. Loved all of it and thought I had it figured out and BAM! Not who I thought it was. While it has sexy scenes, it’s not as descriptive as the other books. Has a great story and most all the other friends (characters) are known or mentioned and also gives clues as to who will have a book in the series. Or at least that’s what I believe.

This is a GREAT story.

What a Revelation! We find out who the girl is (from book 3) that the villain had hidden away for so many years and left all his money too, and why he had her hidden away. Those of you who have read this series, know what I am talking about, and those of you who want to know will have 2 read it 2 find out. It is worth buying this book to find out. This love/mystery story is well written and is a great addition and a must read in this series. If you have not read it you are missing out on a good one. The hero is a spy of the first order and has almost been killed several time. He has put off marrying the women he really wants for several years because he dose not want anyone close to him to get hurt or killed, but he has run out of time. Girl friend has decided she is not going to wait any longer and has put her self on the market to get a husband. The man that wants her has it going on and has more to offer as the hero.

Probably my favorite

I love this story! It may be my favorite of the series. Henry is one of the very best heroes. Mary Sarah's narration is top notch. I adore her deep masculine voices, the way she talks slow and almost whispers. The way *Henry* says *pet* is so sensual.

Maureen is a great leading lady. This is a great story and a wonderful series. I highly recommend.

4 stars

Although it was very good it was a hairs breath shy of the previous books. But 4 stars is still worth it. I had read this book then listened to it on audio. Both versions were good.

This was really really good

I loved all this series so far but I think this was my favourite. It was really nice to have a lot of the Huxley family back, I love them.
I loved Dunstan and Maureen especially Dunstan. The plot was brilliant.
It's such a pity about the narrator, Mary Sarah's, mispronunciation of quite a few words that have an A in them but otherwise she's a very good narrator, I like the way she acts and all the different tones of voices and I very rarely like male voices done by a female narrator, but I like her voice for them.
It seems like she does not read the reviews about the weird way she pronounces some words. It is quite annoying, but I got used to her and I am enjoying this series very much.
I hope that in any future books that she narrates, her pronunciation will be a lot better.
Now on to the next one.

He calls her PET, treats her as the name applies.

They fall in love, but due to his dangerous career, he denies his feeling. However; what he can't have, nobody else can either. So she sits on the shelf trying to work out what is wrong with her. When it looks like she might choose someone else, his usual methods of removing rivals, fails, he throws caution to the wind and marries her. She then finds out that for the passed number of years, he has been lying and manipulating to her, listening to all her self doubting and pretending to be her "friend". However; since she has no brain, but only a body, he uses sexual persuasion to manipulate her yet again. One starts to wonder how he has survived all these years against.an opponent who is always one step ahead. It is not his so call skills that win the war, but a totally amateur.

Great book irritating pronounciation

I really love this series of novels, and every book holds its own. I also like the narration very much. However, the pronounciation of some words, like back and palm annoyes the hell out of me! It`s not buck or pulm, for gods sake! Please Mary, someone must have told you by now, why do you persist with this mindblowing mispronounciation of very simple words?! It gives me the shivers every time I hear it, so much so that I`m starting to dread listening to the next installment, even though I love the books!
