Why Lords Lose Their Hearts

★★★

18404328[1]By Manda Collins

The Truth Could Ruin Her

Perdita, the widowed Duchess of Ormond, keeps a dangerous secret—the truth of how her brutish husband died. But a mysterious avenger seems to know it, too, and when anonymous threats turn into public attacks, there’s only one friend she can turn to for help—her husband’s former secretary, Lord Archer Lisle. The man who witnessed her every heartache. The kind of man whose love she can only dream of…

Will His Love Save Her?

The youngest of the Duke of Pemberton’s five sons, Lord Archer Lisle is used to waiting his turn. For years, he could only stand by, seething, as Perdita suffered at the hands of her husband, but now she’s under threat from another source—one who will stop at nothing to make her pay for the late duke’s death. But the good-natured Archer can be dangerous when crossed—and he’ll do anything to keep the woman he’s adored for so long safe in his arms.

My review

The book is the third and last in the Wicked Widows series. I haven’t read the other two (this one was an ARC from Netgalley) and unfortunately I feel like I’m missing parts of the story. I’m sure that people having read the other two will greatly enjoy this book and the conclusion of the story line. The book is well written and Archer is such a sweet hero (Perdita is a tiny bit less likeable). I can recommend the book, but read “Why Dukes Say I Do” and “Why Earls Fall in Love” first.
