USA Today bestselling author Renee Ann Miller continues her Infamous Lords series perfect for fans of Lenora Bell and Kelly Bowen!
They are the infamous lords, notorious noblemen whose scandalous ways keep tongues wagging. But when darker whispers take hold, a spirited writer’s encounter with a dangerously desirable nobleman may uncover the whole story . . .
For James Trent, Lord Huntington, there’s no escaping the question that labeled him The Murdering Marquess: was his wife’s death a tragic accident or a cold-blooded crime? He’s avoided London’s gossipmongers since that terrible night, as guardian to his younger siblings on his Essex estate. But trouble finds him when a veiled temptress with secrets of her own falls—quite literally—into his arms.
Caroline Lawrence doesn’t need a man to rescue her—the aspiring journalist anonymously advocates for women’s rights in a radical London newspaper column. But when a suffragist’s soapbox speech turns to pandemonium, Caroline is knocked on the head and reawakens in Trent Hall—with the notorious lord of the manor irresistibly close. If there is any truth to his tarnished past, she should denounce him with her powerful pen. Yet love has a way of revealing a man’s true character . . .
Praise for The Infamous Lords series
“Fun and charming.”
“Richly written…infused with humor, will charm readers and keep them turning the pages.”
Miller delivers memorable characters in the third Infamous Lords Victorian (after Never Dare a Wicked Earl). Twenty-year-old Caroline Lawrence is a young lady of means in 1878 England. She's also a closet suffragette and secret journalist in a time when women are expected to be seen and not heard. When she's injured at a suffrage rally, Caroline literally falls at the feet of James Trent, Lord Huntington, a man of less than sterling reputation there are rumors that he murdered his late wife. James has tired of high society's ways and mostly retreated to the country to finish raising his three younger and somewhat troublesome siblings. He never expected to swoon for a green-eyed women's rights advocate. The pair of them waltz around their attraction, weaving a web of well-intentioned lies and intrigue that threatens to strangle them. When she returns to London, James's teenage sister follows her, and he must plunge back into the social world he hates including dealing with his delightful dragon of a grandmother to get them back. This tale of love and social progress, though sometimes trite, comes across as mostly light and sweet.
