A LORD WITH LEGENDARY CONTROL…
Merciless and powerful, Ashton Lennox is a wealthy man because he puts business before everything else, especially love. As a member of the infamous League of Rogues, he’s no stranger to scandal. His bedroom conquests are as legendary as his fortune. As he searches for a way to bring down an old enemy bent on destroying the lives of his friends, the last thing he needs is a Scottish widow getting in his way.
A FIERY WOMAN WHO WON’T BACK DOWN…
The daughter of a Scottish lord with a dark and treacherous past, Rosalind Melbourne has spent years distancing from her past. After escaping her tyrannical father and marrying an aging English lord, she has become a powerful widow with a business empire at her command. Her business dealings are everything to her, leaving her no time for love. Especially not with her business rival Ashton, a man with a scandalous reputation as striking as his blue eyes.
A GAME OF WITS TURNS TO A GAME OF SEDUCTION…
Ashton is fascinated by the strong-willed, intelligent and sensual lady who, up until now, had outsmarted him at every turn. Rosalind wishes she could deny she is falling for the brooding, handsome baron. How can she possibly trust him when doing so could cost her what she values most—her freedom? When Ashton discovers Rosalind might hold the key to saving the League of Rogues, he knows he will do anything to woo his wicked lass. As their pasts return to haunt them and dark forces rise to keep them from exposing a deadly spymaster, their game of love turns to a game of survival…
Warning: This book includes a brooding baron who’s wild in bed, a crafty Scottish lass who never knows when to quit, a wicked game of strip chess, and a merry band of rogues whose first instinct is to run they hear wedding bells ring.
Clever wit and predictability are the hallmarks of Smith's fourth League of Rogues historical erotic romance (after Her Wicked Proposal), set in 1821 England. Lady Rosalind Melbourne is a young widow who is the agent of her own destiny. The death of her husband left her well off and in charge of her own businesses. Baron Ashton Lennox is a member of a small, exclusive brotherhood known as the League of Rogues, gentlemen loyal only to each other and their spouses. Ashton is determined to avoid marriage, which he sees as a trap, and is focused on bringing down Hugo Waverly, a lifelong nemesis of the Rogues who happens to be Rosalind's business partner. Rosalind readily engages Ashton in a battle of business acumen, and both make strategic moves as well as occasional risqu ones. Ashton enjoys the thrill of the chase; for Rosalind the stakes are much higher, and she's determined to win. Smith starts off strong with a unique view of the London elite of the time and richly detailed backstories for the characters, but the cycling through mutual respect, arguing, and passion starts to feel repetitive, and the sex scenes are awkward.
