HE THOUGHT HE’D SEEN IT ALL . . .
The rogue’s life has been good to William Somerhall: He has his fortune, his racehorses, and his freedom. Then he moves in with his mother. It seems the eccentric Dowager Duchess of Worth has been barely skirting social disaster-assisted by one Miss Jenna Hughes, who is far too bright and beautiful to be wasting her youth as a paid companion. Now home to keep his mother from ruin, William intends to learn what’s afoot by keeping his friends close-and the tempting Miss Hughes closer still.
. . . UNTIL HE MEETS HER
He’s tall, dark, and damnably intelligent-unfortunately for Jenna. She and the duchess are in the “redistribution business,” taking from the rich and giving to the poor, and it’s going great – until he shows up. But even as William plots to make an honest woman out of her, Jenna will use all her wiles to reveal just how bad a rogue he can be . . .
Before I started reading the book, I was excited, but scared. I really liked the previous book in the series and the outline of this book sounded so good ( a duke and a spinster!) that I was afraid my expectations would be too high. The first chapter was good, but I still felt a bit detached from the story. Due to family obligations, I had to put the book aside for a week or so. During that week, my thoughts kept going back to the story and once I started reading again, I really enjoyed it. Much like the first book, the setting is very different and refreshing. Both the main characters are very interesting and likeable. Can’t wait for the next one …
