April 28, 2015 The Lords of Worth (Book 2)
The rogue’s life has been good to William Somerhall: He has his fortune, his racehorses, and his freedom. Then he moves in with his mother. It seems the eccentric Dowager Duchess of Worth has been barely skirting social disaster-assisted by one Miss Jenna Hughes, who is far too bright and beautiful to be wasting her youth as a paid companion. Now home to keep his mother from ruin, William intends to learn what’s afoot by keeping his friends close-and the tempting Miss Hughes closer still.


He’s tall, dark, and damnably intelligent-unfortunately for Jenna. She and the duchess are in the “redistribution business,” taking from the rich and giving to the poor, and it’s going great – until he shows up. But even as William plots to make an honest woman out of her, Jenna will use all her wiles to reveal just how bad a rogue he can be . . .


#2 in “The Lord’s of Worth”, but can be read as a stand alone. Fast paced Historical Recency Romance. Filled with interesting,and charming characters and a unique, well blended storyline. Readers are sure to enjoy the complexity, and many twists and turns of this story, along with the secrets, horse racing, Thoroughbreds, righting wrongs, passionate kisses and romance. I enjoyed how Ms. Bowen blended all the elements of a Romance with the intrigue of Horse racing, re-paying debts, and helping the lower classes, as well as maintaining a bit of witty dialogue with an impossible love match. Oh, and the eccentricity of the Duke of Worth’s mother, priceless. A wonderful,exciting tale and one I would suggest for your reading pleasure. I look forward to the next installment of “The Lord’s of Worth”. Well done! A bit of lighthearted reading mixed with an emotional tale of romance. An enjoyable and satisfying read!!
