STORY: Lonesome Lily Turned Scandalous Siren
Miss Lillian Hargrove has lived much of her life alone in a gilded cage, longing for love and companionship. When an artist offers her pretty promises and begs her to pose for a scandalous portrait, Lily doesn’t hesitate…until the lying libertine leaves her in disgrace. With the painting now public, Lily has no choice but to turn to the one man who might save her from ruin.
Highland Devil turned Halfhearted Duke
The Duke of Warnick loathes all things English, none more so than the aristocracy. It does not matter that the imposing Scotsman has inherited one of the most venerable dukedoms in Britain—he wants nothing to do with it, especially when he discovers that the unwanted title comes with a troublesome ward, one who is far too old and far too beautiful to be his problem.
Tartan Comes to Town
Warnick arrives in London with a single goal: get the chit married and see her become someone else’s problem, then return to a normal, quiet life in Scotland. It’s the perfect plan, until Lily declares she’ll only marry for love…and the Scot finds that there is one thing in England he likes far too much…
REVIEW: Let me start off by saying that I’ve read this author before and I found her writing good, but her heroes and heroines are very hard to like. And when that happens, usually I loose the interest in characters and no matter the prose, plot or pace will help me like the book.
In this story I just couldn’t stomach the pathetic heroine. She rubbed me the wrong way throughout the story. As for the chemistry between the two? I felt none. I was told numerous time how she loves this man, and then BOOM! She falls for another.
I’m sorry to say that this story was a big disappointment to me. I know that if you’re this author’s big fan, you’ll probably not heed my words and read it, but I just can’t recommend it.
