Description from Amazon:
For Businessman Heath Hextall, inheriting an earldom has been damnable nuisance. The answer: to find a well-bred, biddable woman to keep his life in order and observe the required social niceties. But it’s always been clear the Lady Josephine Somerhall is not that woman. Once a shy slip of a girl, Joss is now brilliant, beautiful chaos in a ball gown.
In her heart, Joss has always loved Heath, the one person she’s always been able to count on. That doesn’t mean she wants to marry him though. without a husband, Joss can do as she pleases and Now, it pleases her to solve the mystery of an encoded file given to Heath by a dying man. It’s put Heath in peril once, and Joss won’t let that happen again. She’ll do what ahe must to come to the rescue of Heath and ensure the earl’s safety. and to remind him that what she lacks in convention, she makes up for in passion.
This is not your typical deb-at-the-ball novel. Well…it starts out that way but after the ball all hell breaks loose and Joss comes to the rescue of Heath at the same time that Heath pledges his honor to a dying man. The action and twists escalates from there. What Heath and Joss find out is that they are cut from the same mold, that they have more to offer each other than nothing.
I really enjoyed this book. The writing is take your breath away style in both suspense and romance. The chemistry sizzles between Joss and Heath even as she tries not to give in and he thinks of courting a more biddable woman.
This is the second book in Ms. Bowen’s The Lords of Worth series and I enjoyed it as much as first which I reviewed here:
A Good Rogue Is Hard To Find Have no fear they are both standalone novels. I recommend that you give both a read.
