A Wallflower Who Guards Her Secrets
Miss Polly Kent has no illusions about finding love. Not only is she a wallflower, but her freakish ability to read others’ emotions has led to devastating rejection time and again. When it comes to her future, she knows that a marriage of convenience, one in which she can keep her secret affliction hidden, is the only safe choice. Yet when fate throws her into the path of the ton’s wildest rake, she discovers that desire can jeopardize the most carefully laid plans…
A Rake Who Makes No Apologies for His Past
Sinjin Pelham, the Earl of Revelstoke and heir to a duke, has a reputation darker than London’s fog. His exploits have made him the envy of men and the desire of women, but behind his wild and jaded façade lies a painful secret. He knows that no woman can love the devil inside him, yet when he is accused of a ghastly crime, the only one who stands by him is a beautiful virgin, one whose wanton innocence makes him long for the one thing he cannot have…
When Good and Wicked Make Perfect
A marriage that begins with smoldering passion soon deepens into something more. All the while, a dangerous enemy lurks, waiting to strike. As Sinjin and Polly untangle the threads of mystery to clear his name, they must confront their greatest fears, risking all for their love—and their very lives.

My fav of the series
Sinjin, Earl of Revelstoke, is my favorite hero of the Heart of Enquiry series so far. Polly is one of my favorite heroines as well. I loved how at first they thought the worst of each other, but quickly realized they had feelings and acted on them, growing together as a couple instead of fighting it. Sinjin’s father was a real piece of work trying to have his son committed and framing him for assaulting a woman only to try and steal his inheritance… after basically doing that to his mother and leaving her to die lonely in an asylum. I love that the Kent family, once again, brings another person into their family fold happily. Sinjin and Polly had agreed on keeping their afflictions (his depressive/ manic moods and her ability to see auras) private from each other to spare any shame but quickly realized they wanted the other to know and to support each other through those hard times. Even tho Polly eventually lost her ability to see the auras, she still weathered the storms of Sinjin’s moods, helping him to put them behind him and not overtake his control anymore.
This book was truly unique and is definitely one of my all time favorites. Also, I counted 8 or 9 steamy sex scenes, so that also makes for a very fun read. 😉 I’m looking forward to the last book in what’s been a very enjoyable series.
This book was a rollercoaster of emotion. I like that in a book. Now all I can think is I hope this couple does okay. That’s a good thing in a book it means I was truly engaged. I would read this again.
It's a winner....didn't want to put it down.
The series gets better with each new story! I loved visiting with the Kents and characters from the Mayhem in Mayfair series. The story is character driven, heartwarming, funny and suspenseful all rolled up with hot and sexy. I loved Polly and Sinjin's story and quickly found myself caught up in it. Grace Callaway is a great story teller. I've already preordered the next book in the series and I can't wait!
