In #1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey’s captivating regency romance, an innocent young lady’s first brush with royal court intrigue lands her at the altar alongside one of London’s most notorious rogues.
For Lady Rebecca Marshall, a whirlwind of excitement begins when she becomes a maid of honor at the court of Queen Victoria. But when Rebecca unknowingly steps into the rivalry between the Queen’s spymaster and a noblewoman who uses the maids as courtly spies, she is soon entangled in a web of deceit with the charming marquis Rupert St. John. The devastatingly handsome ne’er-do-well is the cousin of Raphael Locke, with whom Rebecca was once infatuated…He’s also a secret agent of the crown who leads a double life. Certain that guileless Rebecca is spying on him, Rupert seduces her—then, forced to wed, he believes she has set a trap of the worst sort in order to marry into his powerful family! But as he comes to know Rebecca’s true heart, his vow of revenge and infidelity becomes a desire to share many passionate nights—only with his beautiful wife.
Another Reformed Rake
The exchanges between the rogue and the heroine are entertaining as long as you suspend your disbelief in most of the plot. But, if you ask me in a week for a plot summary, I will only remember a TV Guide version.
A rogue of my own
Loved the interaction between Rupert and Rebecca!
This book had romance, humor, and I couldn’t stop reading it! ❤️❤️
Abusive relationship (spoilers)
I actually love Johanna Lindsey but this one hit me the wrong way. I started hating the male lead. He never had to grovel after tormenting the female lead. Barely apologized for his delusional accusations of her. She just takes him back because he’s hot. She has no reason to trust him except she likes his family.
