Marriage? To a gambler? You must be joking! Yet Lady Hermione Upperton has never backed down from a challenge. When her spendthrift father offers her at the gaming tables, she is given a difficult choice-wed the Earl of Mainwaring, an infamous gamester with no respect for her skills with the reins, or face charges for the murder of a member of the infamous Lords of Anarchy. Either way she’ll have to clear her name. Can she count on her husband’s help the way she has begun to count on his kisses?
All Jasper Fawley, the Earl of Mainwaring, wanted was a night of cards. But by the end of the evening he’s walked away with a fortune-and a bride who’s suspected of murder. Jasper knows Hermione is passionate about her unorthodox membership in the Lords of Anarchy, but he’s certain she would never kill to keep it. Can he protect his headstrong wife from prosecution and a ruthless killer without endangering both their hearts in the process?
#2 in “Lord’s of Anarchy”, series, while, can be read as a stand alone, I’d recommend reading Book 1 first.
A bit slow at times but picks up nicely. A spy, possible treason, murder, passion,deceit, betrayal, romance and finding true love.
The characters are well-rounded,engaging, energetic, and interesting. The storyline is well written with bits of intrigue, danger, mystery, suspense and of course, the impossible, finding love. Ms.Collins is another of my favorite Historical romance authors. She never disappoints her readers with her characters, her stories, and her writing style. Another enjoyable and satisfying read. I look forward to the next grand adventure.
