Catching the Lady Red-Handed
Born to a family of infamous criminals, Lilah Marshall has left behind her past and made herself into the perfect lady. Working as a hostess at Eveleigh's, London’s premier auction house, she leads a life full of art, culture, and virtue. All her dreams are within reach—until a gorgeous and enigmatic viscount catches her in the act of one last, very reluctant theft.
Chasing One Red-Hot Passion
Christian “Kit” Stratton, Viscount Palmer, is society's most dashing war hero. But Kit’s easy smiles hide a dark secret: he is haunted by a madman’s vow to destroy anyone he loves. When his hunt for the enemy leads to Everleigh’s Auction Rooms, he compels Lilah to help him. But one tempting touch may be their undoing—for what Kit needs threatens all Lilah holds dear, and losing her may destroy Kit.
If you are a historical romance lover and you aren't reading Meredith Duran you are missing out on something VERY special.
Lady Be Good is another stellar book in the very good Rules for the Reckless series. No, you don't have to read the series in order (I bounced around), but you'll want to buy up the whole series after just one book. They are that good.
I read a lot of romance, and a lot of M/F historical romance, and I'm a jaded, picky reader. What Meredith Duran does better than most is she makes her stories complex. These aren't breezy reads. The MCs are usually strong personalities and they usually have a ton of baggage, and Meredith Duran takes her time developing the story and the romance.
I adored this one. It's a little long, but well worth your time and energy. The romance builds and builds, and I just love a misunderstood royal story. There is just so much to work with here.
I even loved reading the story in paperback form, something that often irritates me now that I have my Kindle Voyage. There was something tactile and satisfying about reading this particular story this way.
Overall, an excellent read, and I'm totally hooked on this series.
Enjoy, my friends!
