A fiercely independent duchess and a brooding, reclusive earl are tested by the demands of desire in this unforgettable romance from the USA Today bestselling author of A Kiss of Lies and A Night of Forever.
For Rose Deverill, one husband was enough. As the wealthy widow of the Duke of Roxborough, she has cultivated an unsavory reputation meant to discourage wife hunters. Thanks to a string of steamy affairs, Rose is perfectly content to be known by polite society as the “Wicked Widow”—until she’s reunited with the man she fell in love with at age fifteen. Their bedroom encounters are scorching, but it breaks Rose’s heart to wonder whether her reckless behavior ruined her for Philip Flagstaff.
The second son of the Earl of Cumberland, Philip never wanted the title. But after Philip’s older brother, Robert, follows him into the Battle of Waterloo, his worst fears come to pass. Now Robert lies in a soldier’s grave, and Philip is determined never to pass on the inheritance to children of his own. Then Rose appears, soothing the pain with her delightful curves and passionate kisses. The notorious Duchess seems to want nothing from him—and yet Philip has never ached to give a woman more.

A Thrill through every chapter
This entire series from start to this point brought forth great passion, uncertainty, challenge and deep love. The characters evolved and became real the men showed strength, vulnerability, stirring passion and all the fantasy a woman could desire. The women through each story were strong and courageous altogether lovely. I look forward to the final story and I'm going to miss the libertine scholars and their ladies
it was an absolute chore trying to get through this book. i could only read it in little bits at a time. i found myself not caring a jot about these 2 nuts and whether they got together or not. but you knew they eventually would, and i was annoyed that i had to go through the nonsensical weaving of the storyline. this particular book was not well done at all, in my opinion.
Best. Book. Ever!
Oh how I love this book. I could bearly put it down to sleep. I have read every book in The Disgraced Lords series and have love them all but they pale in comparison to this book. I don't know where to start and I wish I could simply said, "just go read this book you will love it" and be done but I can't.
Philip Flagstaff the second son to a Earl was always doing something wrong and needing his family to save him. After a particularly bad financial investment he decides to enroll in the Kings army. His brother Robert the Earl of Cumberland follows him in to service in hopes to protect him. After stepping in front of a fatal blow meant for Philip Robert dies leaving Philip as the new Earl, and a guilt that weighs heavy on is soul. He whole heartedly believes the wrong brother died.
Rose Deverill never had her season, her fafter married her off at eighteen to a man old enough to be her grandfather. The good that came out of her loveless marriage was her son Drake. She prayed everyday to be a widow and vowed never to remarry and live as a free woman. After discovering what sexual pleasure was in the following years she become known as the Wicked Widow and she truly could not care.
Rose's best friend is Portia, Philip's sister and as a young girl she fancied herself in love this him. On the day of Robert's funeral hours after everyone had gone she convinces Philip to leave his graveside and go home. On that day he found comfort in Rose's arms, now two years later their affair is still strong but things have changed. Rose truly loves Philip and he her but he will not allow himself any true happiness. He made a promise to himself to make Robert proud of him but he will not marry and the Earldom will go to his brother Thomas or his children. Rose wants more, she wants children, Philip's children. Can she convince him he deserves happiness and love or will he put his guilt in front of everything.
The sexual heat in this book is off the charts. The dialog is witty and characters are fun but also sadness and heartache. There is suspense and twists and turns that I did not see coming. I can't not wait for the next book A Dream of Redemption.
