Publisher's Summary

She's a servant masquerading as a lady...  

Gillian Beaumont never had a fairytale life: she was left penniless after her father’s death, forcing her into service as a lady’s maid. Luckily, her mistress is more adventurous than most ladies and soon Gillian is aiding her espionage. One such spy mission forces Gillian to masquerade as a high-born lady to infiltrate a Hellfire Club. But when she falls into the club’s trap, she’s rescued by gentleman rogue, the Earl of Pembroke. His heated kisses make her long for a different life, but she has a secret that could destroy everything…  

He's a gentleman on the outside, but a rogue on the inside...  

James Fordyce, Earl of Pembroke, tries to be a well-behaved man - for the most part. A member of the Wicked Earls’ Club, he has his fair share of notoriety, but he’s longing for the day when he might settle down. A chance encounter with a mysterious beauty leaves him feeling full of hope. When she vanishes without a trace and danger seems to be following her, he knows he must find her and rescue the woman he is determined to make the future Countess of Pembroke. Tracking her down to the seedy halls of a Hellfire Club, he knows he’ll have to fight against all odds to save her before it’s too late…  

Warning: This book contains a woman dreaming of a life she can never have, a hero who’s convinced he’ll never find the one woman destined to be his, and a love so powerful nothing can stop it.  

Steamy and adventurous, fans of Julia Quinn and Johanna Lindsey won’t want to miss out on this upstairs/downstairs romance! Get your copy today!

New author to me, loved it!

I loved this Regency. Romance, angst, action and humor combined to make this a fast and fun listen. Gillian Beaumont is a sweet and loyal lady's maid, born on the wrong side of the sheets. The illegitimate daughter of an peer, she is mistaked for a "lady" by the Earl of Pembroke. Fearing the lady has stumbled into the seedy halls of the Hellfire Club, he makes it his mission to save her. This is a new author for me and I'm very happy to discover her and a new series.
The story is steamy, with a daring and strong heroine trying to save her sexy, heart-grabbing hero from making a grave mistake. Falling in love with her.
The narrator does a lovely job with the characters and her narration helps bring the story to life.
Now I need to find the story on Gillian's mistress and see what happens with her! I highly recommend this book.

Great story, wonderful narration, loved this audio

This was a fun story with a very interesting beginning. I loved Gillian's loyalty to her friend, braving danger to protect her. Her honesty was also endearing as she struggled with when and how to admit to her past. I found this a grittier look at that time period. James was a sweetheart and wanted his heart's desire no matter what. The narration by Carolyn Morris kept me listening as well. I highly recommend this story, and I look forward to reading all the Wicked Earls.

I received a copy of this audiobook as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

Good book. EXCELLENT NARRATION!

So, I listened to the first book in this series and it was a real struggle because the narration was so bad! I didn't listen to anymore of them until I saw this one was narrated by someone else, Carolyn Morris. She is an amazing narrator and I was glad to find this. It really is a bummer the rest of the audible books in this series are not not narrated by her (or someone else). I would totally buy and listen to them.

Anyway, I enjoyed this story quite a bit, it was short and sweet. I liked Gillian and James a lot, they made a good match. The story started out quick and grabbed your attention. Which is always good. There are some good secondary characters that were great. Especially, Audrey Sheridan, she was funny and getting herself into some messes.

Since this was a short story it wasn't full of angst and filler nonsense. There was a lot of good dialogue throughout the entire book. And a few LOL moments!

As for the narration, well I pretty much said it at the beginning. It is amazing! I love Carolyn Morris! She does such a great job on all the voice and her reading voice is fantastic too. The men sound like men, everyone gets their own distinct voice. Amazing!

Cute and sweet

It's a Cinderella tale with a nice young man who takes care of his ailing mom. He's no rake or rogue just a nice guy and he gets a good girl in the end. Short and sweet.

Earl of Pembroke

I loved this book. Lauren Smith never disappoints me. I love how she is writing about the other characters in the League of Rogues series. I loved James and Gillian. I'm looking g forward to the next book in the series.
