Synopsis:

A reckless duke meets his match in a determined young woman – and throws her future into jeopardy with one stolen kiss.

Miss Anna Hawkins, the daughter of a poor country doctor, knows the mysterious stranger who kissed her at the ball cannot really be the Duke of Beaumont. Dukes are virtuous and noble, and this man is arrogant, impudent… and dangerously seductive.

When she discovers he is telling the truth, it only makes matters worse. Anna has more important problems than romance – a handsome duke is the last thing she needs.

Beaumont cannot forget Anna Hawkins. It’s not only her sharp mind and delicate features. It’s not only the flame-red hair he longs to caress. It’s not even that she is the only woman in England to say no to a duke.

Anna is not afraid to chastise Beaumont for his lack of virtue, and he has never wanted anyone more. Before long, he has only one desire: to make her his duchess.

But it takes more than a dukedom to win a woman’s heart.

This is the second book in the series Scandals of Scarcliffe Hall. You do not have to read the first book to enjoy this one! However, there are some connections between the books which will reward readers of the whole series.

This book is one of the best I have read by this author.

My Thoughts:

This book is one of the best I have read by this author. The characters are well drawn, the storyline both engaging and intriguing.

This book never misses a beat!
I gave this story 4.8 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization. The intimacy is not even necessary to make this book a real page turner.
I received a complimentary copy of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Synopsis:

Two warring families. One forbidden love.

Lady Cecily Balfour was always taught that the Hartley men are mad, bad and dangerous to know. When she meets Robert Hartley, Earl of Scarcliffe, she makes a few additions to that list:

Stubborn. Infuriating. Handsome. Charming. Tempting.

Society expects Cecily to make an advantageous match of her father’s choosing. What can she do now that her own choice is a man she is expressly forbidden to see?

The Earl of Scarcliffe enjoys hunting, drinking, billiards, and bachelordom. Love does not feature on his list of requirements. Especially for a woman with a stubborn streak a mile wide and a penchant for riding off on his favourite stallion. And if that same woman is a Balfour? Not a chance!

But Cecily just happens to have a pair of striking blue eyes, a taste for adventure and a rapier-sharp sense of humour…

Robert’s heart is in as much danger as his head will be if they are caught together.

When Robert and Cecily defy their powerful families for love, what will they have to sacrifice in return?
