From the USA Today bestselling author of The Untouchables series comes your next Regency obsession: The Spitfire Society…
Meet the smart, independent women who’ve decided they don’t need Society’s rules, their families’ expectations, or, most importantly, a husband. But just because they don’t need a man doesn’t mean they might not want one…
Graham Kinsley is shocked when he inherits a debt-ridden dukedom, and now he has just one month to repay a loan. He needs an heiress—or find a way to recoup the former duke’s losses. When he meets the alluring Arabella, he’s entranced. Unfortunately, she’s as bankrupt as he is, but if they work together they may be able to recover their fortunes. Though if they keep stealing kisses, they may lose their hearts instead.
Arabella Stoke can’t afford an attraction to the penniless duke who has vowed to help rescue her family from financial devastation. She needs to find a wealthy husband before her father succumbs to the stress of losing everything. However, as Graham brings them closer to finding the swindler who stole their money, the war between what they want and what they need may ruin them both.
Graham Kinsley is shocked to find himself a titled person and the heir to a debt-ridden dukedom. Now he has just one month to repay a loan that he took from his friend to save the estate. He needs an heiress or another way to recoup the former duke’s losses. When he meets the alluring Arabella, he’s entranced.
Arabella Stoke needs to find a wealthy husband before her father succumbs to the stress of losing everything. Unfortunately both she and Graham find themselves in the same boat. They both need to marry for money and both are bankrupt. They are attracted to each other but since they are both victims of the same scoundrel although through no fault of their own, they can’t take the attraction to ano
Can they find a way to solve their problems and still find love?
I liked this first book in this new series and it’s characters. Graham and Arabella are perfect for each other. She wants to save her family and he wants to save the penniless Dukedom he has inherited. Their personalities just mesh!
We first met Graham as the secretary of the Earl of St. Ives in the final book of the Untouchables Series. Arabella is a new character and a virtual unknown except that she does have friends who were introduced to us in that same series.
I was perplexed as to why Graham refused to ask his long time friends for the help he needs. Arabella, however has no such connections except the ladies she knows in the Spitfire Society.
Could their friends have helped them if they asked? I guess we will never know because both of them were too proud and determined to make their own way.
I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for story line and characterization. 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.

Before there was a Lady Travelers Society, there was just one lady traveler…
Some marry for love. Some marry for money. But Violet Hagen’s quick wedding to irresponsible James Branham, heir to the Earl of Ellsworth, was to avoid scandal.
Though her heart was broken when she learned James never wanted marriage or her, Violet found consolation in traveling the world, at his expense—finding adventure and enjoying an unconventional, independent life. And strenuously avoiding her husband.
But when James inherits the earldom it comes with a catch—Violet. To receive his legacy he and Violet must live together as husband and wife, convincing society that they are reconciled. It’s a preposterous notion, complicated by the fact that Violet is no longer the quiet, meek woman he married. But then he’s not the same man either.
Chasing Violet across Europe to earn her trust and prove his worth, James realizes with each passing day that a marriage begun in haste may be enjoyed at leisure. And that nothing may be as scandalous—or as perfect—as falling hopelessly in love. Especially with your wife.
This is Book 4 of the Lady Travelers Society series. There are a few novellas thrown in for good measure but this is the fourth full length novel.
I love Victoria’s characterization and each of the books can be easily read as a standalone and you will never be lost.
Violet and James were just meant to be even though they spent the first six years of their marriage living apart. Violet traveled the world at James’ expense and never would have thought to come back to the man that never wanted to marry her.
This is another delightful addition to this series. I gave this book 4.4 of 5.0 stars for characterization and plot.
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.
