Introducing Chills, the first installment of the Distinguished Rogues series. Bestselling regency romance author, Heather Boyd, brings readers a lively tale of reckless spending, fraudulent correspondence, and the humorous twists and turns of falling for the right rogue…
Jack, Marquess of Ettington, is at his wits’ end dealing with his twin sister’s distress. Under her name, he’s summoned Constance Grange, his vexing former ward, to London to act as his sister’s companion for the season. Although Pixie’s debt-ridden state comes as a complete surprise, what disturbs him more is his sister’s plan to find her a wealthy husband to pay off her overwhelming debts. And—despite his availability, wealth and title—he’s shocked to be overlooked for the position of Pixie’s husband.
With a nickname like Pixie, Constance Grange should be used to disasters, but debt collectors pounding on the Marquess of Ettington’s door demanding payment is beyond mortifying. Given the precarious state of her finances and the previously unknown loss of her family estate, her choices are either incarceration in debtors’ prison or turning fortune hunter to secure a wealthy husband. Yet the man who comes to her rescue more times than she cares to think about is unavailable, betrothed, and her former guardian Jack—the cold-hearted marquess.
Had Some Issue, Still Read It In A Day!
It’s a good book! I did truly enjoy reading it and as the title says, I read it in a few hours because of this. My only main gripe is when it comes to the main female character, the writing felt predictable and I was annoyed. It played into the “young and innocent” act way too much that it sometimes felt unbelievable but the we able to get past it and overall enjoyed the story!!
Fun, fun, fun!
Slow But Pretty Good
I found the plot to be too slow for my taste. I also found myself less than invested in the characters because of it. I don’t regret picking it up though.
