THE WICKEDEST SECRET . . .
Major Nathaniel Grey is free to bed whomever he wants, whenever he chooses, and that's exactly how he likes it. His only loyalties are to country and the two friends he served with-brothers he'd do anything for. So when one of them is gravely injured and asking for his little sister, Grey will move heaven and earth to bring her home. He's greeted not by the gangly girl he remembers, but a stunningly beautiful woman holding a loaded musket. And he's utterly captivated by her . . .
IS A SECRET SEDUCTION
Once upon a time, Emily would have loved nothing more than a stolen hour with her brother's best friend, the dashing officer who captured her heart and soul. But things are different now--and so is she. Gone is the eager young woman who believed in love. In her place is a widow weighed down with secrets who desperately needs to disappear before they're revealed. But Grey's sinfully sexy smile offers protection unlike anything she's ever known, tempting her to risk everything . . . even her heart.
Harrington's second Secret Life of Scoundrels Regency (after Dukes Are Forever) reunites a woman and her first crush, years after they shared a passionate moment. Emily Crenshaw is living quietly in Yorkshire, England, after the death of her husband. Maj. Nathaniel Grey, an emotionally distant war hero, travels to her home so that he can escort her back to London, where her brother is recuperating from a gunshot wound. Emily's refusal to go concerns and confuses him, but when circumstances force them together in close proximity, Grey can't hide the fact that he is drawn to her. Emily knows that there may be no future for them, but she wants to explore the desire she feels for Grey. Emily is a complex protagonist whose intelligence and beauty hide her insecurities about her previous marriage. The attraction between her and Grey is both sensuous and alluring. Harrington has created a richly woven novel, complete with romance, a touch of mystery, and wounded, believable characters.
Wonderful Historical Romance!
I absolutely loved this story! This series is the perfect historical romance series! I'm definitely looking forward to reading more books in this series.
I was given an ARC for an honest review. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.
Far more sex than necessary. Indeed, more sex scenes than storyline and the plot suffered for it. A full length novel, such as this is far better served with character development and experiences that include more than bedroom antics. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about some hot, steamy sexing in a romance novel but I need more than that. The first couple or three, whew...but then it just went on and on. And on.
