Publisher's Summary

Charles Humphrey, the Earl of Lonsdale, is infamous for his seductions. With laughing, gray eyes and a halo of blond hair, he's every woman's wicked dream. Beneath that devil-may-care grin he has a painful past that has made him sure love was not for him, even as the rest of his friends, the members of the League of Rogues, settle down in wedded bliss. When he accidentally rescues a mysterious beauty with eyes as haunted as his own and shares one life-changing kiss with her, she vanishes in the night. Charles vows to find this angel who might yet save his soul, but he knows anyone he cares about is in grave danger when an old enemy resurfaces a final time for revenge....

Lily has secrets, too many secrets. When she's abducted and taken into the London underworld by a gang of nefarious brutes, she's rescued by Charles, the one man who can never know her past. She can't let him discover her feelings or her secrets, but she can't resist sharing one kiss with him before escaping his passionate embrace. That taste of the last bachelor of the League of Rogues leaves her desiring a future she cannot have - especially when her master demands she prove her loyalty in a most deadly way....

Closure

I love that Heather Wilds narrates the whole series. It helps with remembering characters and the other stories.

The storyline had enough of everything. All types of closure is needed. I would say I am satisfied with the ending without spoilers.

Finally, I can sleep

This series has totally messed up my sleeping, or lack thereof. The entire series has kept me awake, too enthralled to sleep. I am so happy Charles finally found his hea. I will say I have a few issues with her, and my feelings are kind of torn...which was the point of his story. It only adds to his. I like that all the rogues were heavily involved unlike other series where previous characters were merely mentioned. I won't give any spoilers. Everyone knows it was Charles' time. He's needed a hug from the first time he was introduced.
This last story was a bit stressful, again written purposely for that reaction. Well written. Love the narrator, and so happy she narrated all of them. There have been a couple of series I couldn't finish bcs they changed the narrator to a horrible one, and couldn't tell who was who by the voices.
I look forward to the next in the series, with Joanna. Hopefully, less stress this time.

Dreadful narrator, mediocrely writing

The story, at least the concept, seems potentially quite good. However, The narrator is so awful that the caliber of the writing is shown for what it is: desperately in need of a good copy editor! Using the word “fear” three times in one sentence is not only weak exposition but simply lazy. If a writer,sadly, has a limited vocabulary, a thesaurus should be kept near at hand. Even the narrow scope of an online version can prevent such silly redundancies.

The handling of dreams and flashbacks is muddled in the text but is made much worse by the narration. Sentences are broken such as to lose meaning and all emotional impact. The exact same vocal inflection is used consistently throughout. There is no character differentiation.

I’ve given the story four stars. However, that is only a guess and I’m giving credit for what the plot line appears to be. The reason for this is that, after only 2 1/2 hours of listening, I am so bored and frustrated with the abominable narration and the lack of skill in the text, that I can go no further. Maybe at sometime in the future I will try to struggle through another two hours or so in order to find out what happens. As I said, the ideas are good; it is the execrable execution by both author and narrator that are at fault.

Cravat pin

I did enjoy this book and the performance of the narrator,she has got better the more of the series she read, although I did have to speed up her voice as it drawls rather a lot. As for the story, I had waited for Lilly to be revealed and tell all and with that how to identify the spies in the households but she didn’t? Did the writer forget? The pin could have been revealed in book 4 when Rosalind was reunited with her brothers as they had been told the secret of the pin by none other than Hugo himself and if all his spies had the pin why did Tom not know that Daniel was one of them? Was disappointed a bit because of this
