SYNOPSIS:

When a bluestocking spinster sets her mind to something…

Lady Patience Lane, daughter of the Earl of Desmond and legendary boxer Ivory Bess, grew up learning to fight, not how to mind her manners. She always expected she’d become a trainer like her mother, until injuries from the ring led to her mother’s untimely death. Now, she’s determined to save other families from the same heartache, by teaching others about the dangers of boxing. Nothing could bring her back to the world she left—until she meets a mysterious stranger who sets her pulse racing.

And a dark, dangerous lord interferes…

Sinclair Chambers, the Earl of St. Seville and known as “Sin” to his cohorts, inherited an insolvent estate. He has to make money, and fast, or his tenants will starve. The prize purses from the bareknuckle mills will go a long way to solving his problems, if he can win them. To be a success in the ring, he needs the best trainer, and Patience Lane is the best there is—all he has to do is convince her that he’ll only fight once.

They just might find their happily ever after in each other’s arms.

The more time Sin and Patience spend together, the closer they become. Soon, Sin’s thoughts are less about winning in the ring, and more about winning Patience’s heart. But can a relationship born out of wicked deception stand the test of time?

My Thoughts:

This is the third book I have read in this multi-author series. There are a total of 12 with only one more that has not yet released.

So far this one is the cleanest/sweetest one I have read.

Lady Patience name is deceiving. She is by no means patient with members of the ton who ignore her edicts and wishes to keep others from suffering like her mother did.

Sinclair Chambers, Earl of St. Seville came to London with one thought in mind… To earn enough money boxing to save his estate and his people.

Patience’s father brings him home after finding him being beaten and calls for a doctor to tend his injuries.

Hearing noises that wake her Patience thinks her brothers have returned home but instead finds a half dressed man she doesn’t know occupying her brother’s bedchamber. rather than identify himself he climbs from the second story window to disappear into the night.

After this inauspicious beginning our couple become enamored with one another however they take no steps toward intimacy. Instead Patience takes over the training of Sin so he is more proficient at boxing.

Instead of a hot romp in the sheets this book includes a story of lies by omission and feelings of betrayal.

Will our couple get past the untruths or will Sinclair’s lies lead to the end between the couple?

I gave this novella 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 1 of 5 flames. No intimacy ever develops between our couple.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read and review. I also received a link to an ARC at Bookfunnel from the author.
This in no way affected my opinion of this novella which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

James, the Earl of Pembroke, falls for a mysterious lady and rescues her from a hell fire club…

Gillian, the illegitimate daughter of an earl, is hiding her true identity as a servant from James…

When thrown together at a house party, their passion can’t be denied, but will the truth of Gillian’s past destroy their happiness?

My Thoughts:

This is the second book I have read in this Multi-Author series.
I love Lauren Smith’s books, especially the Historical Romance and Dragon Shifter Romance.
This book is part of The Wicked Earl’s Club and crosses over to be part of Lauren’s series The League of Rogues.
James is an Earl and when he and his sister meet Gillian in a book shop he is immediately drawn to this lovely young woman.
Although Gillian is a daughter of an Earl she is illegitimate. Her mother was the Earl’s mistress after the death of his wife.
Sparks fly between this unlikely Hero and Heroine, but will their obvious attraction lead to marriage?
In the Regency Era that probably wouldn’t happen, but this is fiction so maybe it can.
I gave this novella 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5.0 flames. Although our hero treats Gillian like a lady passion finally wins out.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

Jonas Parker, the Earl of Harrington has no desire to marry. He rather enjoys being unencumbered and a wife would complicate things. The Wicked Earls’ Club is his haven and he isn’t ready to give it up for matrimony. His grandfather, the Duke of Southington wants nothing more than to see him wed and return to the fold. For that reason alone he’ll avoid proper ladies and wedding bells.

Lady Marian Lindsay rather likes being a spinster and embraces her bluestocking ways. She’s studying to be a physician and wants to be a proper doctor. She longs to be taken seriously in the medical field, but her efforts go unnoticed. After careful deliberation she devises a scheme that is foolproof, but she needs the help of one of her father’s friends to make it happen.

Harrington is appalled at Marian’s request and refuses outright; however, she somehow manages to charm him into saying yes. Before he realizes it, he’s escorting her to Kent and a house party made of his worst nightmares. Propriety must be met at all costs, because he will not be wed at the end of her expedition—or will he?
