STORY: Hide your daughters and your maiden aunts…Lord Samuel Travis is back.
―The London Hearsay, special society edition
Equal parts scoundrel and seducer, he’s returned to London determined to mend the rift with his older brother. All Sam must do is take possession of a tumbledown town house. A seemingly simple task, except the house is occupied—by an infuriating, whip-smart beauty who refuses to do his bidding.
Miss Juliette Lacey’s wallflower days are over. She has a plan to turn her eccentric family into the toast of the ton—but the devilishly handsome rake trying to oust them from their home thwarts her at every turn. How can one man be so vexing and make her simmer with desire?
As her attraction to Sam deepens, Julie’s problems grow—she may have, once upon a time, secretly shared a kiss with his honorable older brother. Suddenly, Julie’s caught between a rogue and a marquess, between passion and respectability. Torn between two brothers, what’s a girl to do?
REVIEW: This is the third story in this series and I have to say that it was my least favorite and for that I blame both leads. They were just not clicking with me for some reason. However, the writing was good and by the end of the story I sort of warmed up to them and went along with the plot.
If you’ve read the previous two books, then by all means read this story as well, but if you’ve never read this author before, this wouldn’t be the book I recommend you start with. Start with the two previous books in this series. I really liked those two.
