The race is on in this sexy new Regency series. To prevent three dukes from shoving their way into the royal line, the monarchy will dangle the ton's most notorious rakes before the dukes' intended brides. They'll cause a scandal, then call off any plans of matrimony. But just who will have the last laugh?
Rhys plans the seduction of Olivia like the cavalry officer he was, but when a series of mishaps convinces him that someone wants to get rid of her--permanently--he becomes her fiercest protector...even at the cost of his own heart.
My Thoughts and Review
I really enjoyed this story it was a fun read with lots of laughter and I have to say I shed a few tears as well.I can start off by saying that I am a big fan of Connie Mason so I was very excited to read her latest story with Mia Marlowe.I have read all Connies books and she is a fabulous writer and she never disappoints and she always gives you a great read.Now I have to go out and pick up some of Mia's books as well.The duo of writers put together a very enjoyable read so looking forward to other books by this duo as well.
From the very beginning of starting to read this story I could not put it down and read it into the wee hours of the morning.The story had a great plot that made you so engrossed with the character's that you will not want to put the book down.
I loved both the lead characters in this story and both were both refreshing and honest with one another even though Rhys was on a mission to seduce and ruin Olivia he was up front with her from the very beginning warning her that he was nothing but a rake.Even though Rhys was set to ruin Olivia he had a conscious and in his way tried to warn her even though he never let on what he truly was all about.
The sparks fly between this couple from there very first introduction .Olivia is such a bright and generous sole and is truly a very caring and giving person.Rhys is caught of guard and he discovers that Olivia is not your normal bratty rich girl without a brain in her head but a intelligent beautiful women with a great big loving heart.
Rhys plans go a rhy when Olivia turns the tables on him and is all about letting him seduce her and show her the joys that go on between and man and a women well maybe not all there is but a little to be enjoyable to both parties.Rhys has more at stake then stopping this wedding but gaining proof of a wrong doing that lead him to be disgraced .This proof would clear his name if her carries out this mission.But, how can one carry out there mission when one has fallen in love with there conquest ?
An awesome adventure of love and mystery and attempted murder .A enjoyable read that lead us to the down fall of yet another Rake who never saw it coming.Who doesn't want to see the downfall of a rake by a mere virgin ? I loved this story and its characters.You got to love it when a story brings you nothing but smiles and some occasional tears..
A recommend read you won't be disappointed! ”
