After being abandoned by her almost-betrothed, Caroline Nash vows to never again get involved with a man. Especially not the middle-aged earl her father has chosen for her. The man is a pompous ass and one of Prinny’s set who only wants her for her dowry. To complicate matters, a kiss from the Midnight Marauder unleashes an unbelievable passion that Caroline can’t seem to forget.
Stephan, the Marquis of Kendrick, poses as the robbing marauder to avenge his low-born mother. But he starts questioning his plans when one of his “missions” crosses paths with Caroline and leads to the kiss of a lifetime. Stephan senses that this proper miss is more fiery than he expected and he wants more.
To be properly introduced to the woman of his dreams, he attends the Prince Regent’s house party. He finds her, begging a friend to pretend to court her – to fend off the man her father has chosen. Stephan couldn’t wish for a better opportunity – he’ll happily court her, but he doesn’t want to pretend. Their connection is sizzling, but can this charade become something real once Stephan’s secrets are revealed?

A Rake’s Revenge
After reading the first book, I was excited to read Caroline's story. I absolutely adored this. Caroline was such a strong woman in the first one and continued as such here. For her, she needed the perfect foil and she got one in Stephen. Stephen wears many hats. First he is the Marquess of Kendrick, a pirate and also the Midnight Marauder. The journey to their HEA is really filled with conflict in the name of the Earl of Tisdale.
I was glued to my e-reader to see how the author was going to attempt to work all of the threads here together into a cohesive plot. I was totally enchanted with the plot and all the happenings. I really loved the multiple person POV that we were given. It really helped to get a more thorough understanding as to what was happening. The author also had a way of writing the story that really made it seem like I was right there in the middle of everything.
I so look forward to the third story (I have a feeling is Brice's along with the American orphan Miss Sarah Vincent.) There is a scene that is sexual in nature but I wouldn't classify it as erotica. It was more of moving the relationship forward and in a semi-modest detailing.
Nothing but fluff and puff
What a disappointment. The book had no depth or substance. You are suppose to believe two people fall in love despite spending zero to no time together, sometimes days of no time, don’t even know anything about the other. There was no character development. He lusted after her, so he should marry her. What? Neither had any convos of depth. She spent more time with the underdeveloped deflated “villain” than the guy she married. Such a shallow read. Historical aspect was lacking. Waste of money, don’t bother.
