April 28, 2015 Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James Place

Sparks fly in the finale of the Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James Place series, as the last wicked rogue meets his match.

When Rosalind Sharpe gains the attention of the deliciously wicked Duke of Avendale, she’s torn between her distracting attraction to the notorious rogue and the knowledge that he—rich as Croesus—is the perfect target for a deception that will put her swindling days behind her.

However, Avendale is no fool. After he discovers the tantalizing lady packing up to leave London with his coins in tow, he confronts her with a scandalous proposition: she can have all the money she requires…for a week in his bed.

Desperate for the funds, Rose agrees, but on one condition: he must never question her motives. Avendale quickly sees beneath her mask and discovers she is more than passion and pleasure—she is everything he has ever desired. But claiming her requires he unveil her secrets and lose her forever. Unless he can put his own dark past aside and risk everything for a chance at love.


Simply amazing! #3 in the “Scandalous Gentleman of St. James Place”, but can be read as a stand alone.
Filled with depth, the characters are well developed, the storyline unique. One of the secondary character’s has the “Elephant Man Disease”,(Neurofibromatosis), a rare disease few knew about in this era. Harry, the heroine’s brother has this disease. This story touches on the cruelty they suffer and the people who love them.
Filled with secrets, passion, true love of a family member, emotional turmoil and romance. Not a run of the mill Regency Historical Romance story. Very emotional, compelling and captivating. You will need tissues!

Well written, the characters are engaging and endearing. The storyline is unique, interesting, and intriguing with a few twists and turns. A very well told story! Fans of romance, medical interest and historical romance will enjoy this story. Emotional, compelling, educational and passionate!!
