The Lady’s Plan
When Lady Henrietta Sedley declares her twenty-ninth year her own, she has plans. Plans to inherit her father’s business, to make her own fortune and to live her own life. But first, she has plans to experience a taste of the pleasure she’ll forgo as a confirmed spinster. She does not, however, plan to find the most beautiful man she’s ever seen tied up in her carriage and threatening to ruin The Year of Hattie before it’s even begun.
The Bastard’s Proposal
When he wakes in a carriage at Hattie’s feet, Whit, a king of Covent Garden known to all the world as Beast, can’t help but wonder about the strange woman who frees him—especially when he discovers her plans for a night of pleasure…on his turf. He is more than happy to offer Hattie all she desires…for a price.
An Unexpected Passion
Soon, Hattie and Whit find themselves rivals in business and pleasure: she won’t give up her plans; he won’t give up his power…but neither of them sees that if they’re not careful, they’ll have no choice but to give up everything…including their hearts.
I am head over heels in love with The Barenuckle Bastards!!!!!! Two books in and I am addicted to this series! I can’t wait for the next book! Another strong leading lady who refuses to let any man steal her dreams. So much inspiration can be found in the determination, drive, and cunning of this single female character that I am interested to see who we meet next and how she will compare. Writing an equally strong hero who is able to support such a lady is a major reason why I adore this author. The fact that this leading male character has so much stand-alone character without over shadowing the leading lady makes this book a truly fantastic read! I loved every page of this book!
Lady Henrietta Sedleyhas a plan and this will be the year of “Hattie”, where she achieves all her dreams. She isn’t about to let an unconscious stranger on the floor of her carriage,on the eve of her birthday stop her from putting that plan in motion. If only she knew how that one night and that one unconscious strangerwould change her whole life.
Saviour “Beast” Whittington is a Barenuckle Bastard and with that comes a certain level of respect. Or at least it is supposed to, that is when he isn’t being kissed then thrown out of a moving carriage by a brazen Lady of London’s high society. Convinced he must find her for the sake of his business, his employees, and his way of life he must find that Lady, he soon learns he must find her for far more emotional reasons.
Another incredible book by Sarah MacLean. I can’t wait to know what you all think of it!
