He is a hunter at heart…but her heart is no easy prey.
Hannah Walpole suspected the etiquette lessons her parents insisted upon were a wasted effort. Now, looking around at theton at her debut, she’s sure of it. Her home is the African continent. She simply does not fit in English Society. Nothing will convince her otherwise, especially not a devilishly handsome lord with black hair, vivid green eyes and a wicked reputation for debauching innocent young women.
Lord Miles Whitely admires Hannah’s adventurous spirit and cool composure in the face of adversity. It doesn’t hurt that their first encounter provides him with the delightful opportunity to get his hands beneath her skirts.
When the lady declares she cannot be seduced, he cheerfully takes up the gauntlet she has unwittingly thrown down. But Hannah has no intention of succumbing to his striking gaze or honeyed flattery. Until a crisis leads her to suspect he’s not truly the cad everyone warned her about…
Warning: Contains one misfit debutante, one shamelessly flirty rake who finds humor in nearly everything, and a long, hot summer party in the country. Deploy your fans, ladies. Things are about to get steamy.
A quick, cheeky, fun read. The characters are engaging, if a bit usual for a Regency Historical, but an enjoyable read, nonetheless. I found “Relentless Lord” to be a fun read, not too complex. It does have a “bad” cousin, who I would have enjoyed seeing her getting her due. A great afternoon read!
