Lord Marcus Bowles has stained his family’s reputation for the last time. Only after spending a scandal-free year restoring some far-flung property can this second son return in good graces. But Marcus isn’t one to abandon a lone damsel on a dark country lane.
One stolen kiss and Genevieve Turner’s handsome midnight savior disappears. Typical. No matter, Gen is finally on the way to her new post, and hopefully to finding her grandmother as well. Instead she finds her mischievous hero is her new employer. Surely a few more kisses won’t hurt…
My Thoughts:This adult tale loosely based on red riding hood is a delightful read.
Reviewed December 5, 2017
This is the third book in this series of adult re-tellings of fairy tales.
I own the first two books but had not read them prior to reading this book.
It really doesn’t matter which order you read them in because each one can be read as a standalone title.Lord Marcus has a habit of causing his family to be knee deep in scandal, but this time is the straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back.He has been banished to a family property in the middle of nowhere. There he is supposed to spend the next year restoring this rundown property. Only then will this second son be able to return to London. When he sees a woman in a red cape in desperate straits he can’t leave her to her own devices.
Genevieve Turner is on the run from a man who tricked her into signing an indentured servant agreement that she had no way of understanding. She after all couldn’t read well enough to understand what she had signed until it was too late.
This adult tale loosely based on red riding hood is a delightful read. I did run into parts of the story where it bogged down, but the pace picked back up quickly enough so that I wasn’t tempted to jump ahead or skim through.
I gave this title a solid 4.0 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy is hot and not to be missed.
I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the publicist to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Thomas Seabrook, the penniless Duke of Wentworth, walks into White’s for night cap. He leaves no longer in need of coin. In fact, he has become a wealthy man and owner of Hamilton Whaling Industries of New Bedford, Massachusetts and guardian of a seventeen-year-old girl. Thomas travels to Boston intent of bring his ward back and marrying her off to the first eligible gentleman who requests her hand. Except the first gentleman to ask for her, is his own brother Sebastian. Thomas refuses, because bloody hell, he wants her for himself.
Emma Hamilton is not happy with her new situation. Her papa brought her up to be independent and assertive. How dare this stranger, this moody noble, dictate what she can do and not do? When she finds herself thrown into a London season, being introduced from one gentleman to another, looking for a husband, she realizes only the Duke will do. Can Emma break through the Duke’s dark, hard exterior and find the loving, caring gentleman she knows he hides from the world?
