OUT NOW

Another wonderful book by the amazing Lenora Bell, I couldn’t put down! I adored how this hero is bewitched by the fact that this heroine treats him rudely and doesn’t simper at him like all the other debutantes. Add to that romance danger, suspense, and spies it’s no wonder this book was such a fun read. I can’t wait to read where the next adventure takes us!

Miss Wilhelmina Penny, niece or Sir Malcolm Penny has plans, BIG plans. She is determined to follow in the footsteps of her diseased parents. Marrying London’s most notorious rake, Lord Rafe Bentley and joining him as a member of her uncle’s network of spies is her goal. Much to her dismay her uncle has decided that he wants her to marry a Duke, and not just any Duke, the Duke of Thorndon, Lord Rafe’s older brother. Will her uncle’s plans for her ruin her chance at the life she has planned for herself, or will all her dreams come true?

Andrew Bentley, Duke of Thorndon, used to be a notorious rake. But since he removed himself to the country and has become somewhat of a recluse those days are well behind him. When he is forced to return to London to protect his sister and clean up whatever new mess his brother has made he decides he should do his duty and find a wife. His first ball back and he is completely bored until he meets the one debutant who isn’t wowed by his title and seems to be put off by his mere presence. When her plans to marry his disaster of a brother force them to work together he finds himself completely enchanted. Will he pull out his arsenal of rakish ways to seduce her and win her affections, or will his past get the better of him and force him to push her away?

I really, really enjoyed this book. I can’t wait for the next one!
