Synopsis:

Mayfair Book one coverThe Duchess of Bentley is just out of mourning. As a widow, she has certain freedoms other women do not. But she has neither the time nor inclination to look for dalliance. She’s much too busy overseeing the very special properties left to her by the late duke—including the elite gaming hell known as Dante’s Inferno. Until another nobleman returns to London, and reminds her that she is still a young, passionate woman.

The Duke of Evermont has returned from his sugar plantations in the Caribbean. His life is full, running his estates and seeing to his investments. The last thing he’s searching for is a wife. That is, until he sees Eleanor again, and other society beauties fade in comparison. The last time he saw her, Eleanor was walking down the aisle to another man. This time, Evermont is determined not to let the beautiful and vibrant lady slip through his hands.

Fortunately for him, the duchess turns to him for help—and he’s more than willing to sweep her under his ducal cloak of protection. Whether his assistance is required in shielding her from members of society foolish enough to gamble away their fortunes or from the heartless schemes of her own father—Evermont will do what it takes to show her their future together is a sure thing.

Synopsis:

A Rake's Redvenge coverAfter being abandoned by her almost-betrothed, Caroline Nash vows to never again get involved with a man. Especially not the middle-aged earl her father has chosen for her. The man is a pompous ass and one of Prinny’s set who only wants her for her dowry. To complicate matters, a kiss from the Midnight Marauder unleashes an unbelievable passion that Caroline can’t seem to forget.

Stephan, the Marquis of Kendrick, poses as the robbing marauder to avenge his low-born mother. But he starts questioning his plans when one of his “missions” crosses paths with Caroline and leads to the kiss of a lifetime. Stephan senses that this proper miss is more fiery than he expected and he wants more.

To be properly introduced to the woman of his dreams, he attends the Prince Regent’s house party. He finds her, begging a friend to pretend to court her – to fend off the man her father has chosen. Stephan couldn’t wish for a better opportunity – he’ll happily court her, but he doesn’t want to pretend. Their connection is sizzling, but can this charade become something real once Stephan’s secrets are revealed?

My Thoughts:

Like the first book I read of this series this book started off as a very exciting, quick read but somewhere near the half way point it bogged down.

I did finish it but it just wasn’t quite the remarkable read I first thought it would be. It was however, better than the previous title from this series that I had read, A Rake’s Redemption. I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization.
The hero is a remarkable individual with really good traits that endeared him to me. Caroline is a likeable heroine in spite of the interference of a selfish father, an abhorrent earl, and the machinations of the prince making this a very frustrating read at times.
I received a complimentary ARC of this title to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Each book in the Rake Trilogy series is STANDALONE:
* A Rake’s Redemption
* A Rake’s Revenge

Synopsis:

A Rake's Redemption coverAlexander Ashley has decided women of the ton are more interested in status than love. His game is seduction and nothing more. His feelings regarding aristocratic ladies leads to an outlandish idea—prove a servant can be taught to be as ladylike as those born to it. And the beautiful Inis Fitzgerald might be just the woman for his plan.

Inis Fitzgerald escaped her home in Dublin to avoid an arranged marriage and is now working for a rakishly handsome lord who seems to enjoy bucking convention as much as she does. She plays along with his little game, pretending she knows nothing about being a lady. It doesn’t take long before Alex discovers Inis is every bit as much of an aristocrat as the women he’s sworn only to seduce and not love…
