"Putney's endearing characters and warm-hearted stories never fail to inspire and delight." --Sabrina Jeffries
"No one writes historical romance better." --Cathy Maxwell
Marry in haste, repent at leisure.
James, Lord Kirkland, owns a shipping fleet, half a London gaming house, and is a ruthlessly effective spymaster. He is seldom self-indulgent. . .except when it comes to the gentle, indomitable beauty who was once his wife.
Laurel Herbert gave James her heart as an innocent young girl--until she saw him perform an act of shocking violence before her very eyes. That night she left her husband, and he let her go without a word of protest.
Now, ten years later, a chance encounter turns passionate, with consequences that cannot be ignored. But as they try to rebuild what was broken, they must face common enemies and a very uncommon love. . ..
"Of all Putney's heroes, the Lost Lords are the most irresistible--bad boys who are so very good." --RT Book Reviews

Not Quite a Wife
3 1/2 stars I enjoyed this book the series has been very good I liked the characters although Laurel was a little too meek I liked Kirkland in the other books he turned out to be a really good character I loved the suspense and adventure the romantic was good not enough, I was glad all the other lords and their wife's were in this book. I hope there will be another book I would love to read Violets story that would be interesting.
Very political and religious throughout. More of an educational read than a romance novel. Beginning was quite boring and slow. The ending was better, but too many things were just made to happen for the sake of a happy ending. Wouldn't read again or recommend it.
Didn't have the passion that the other lost lords books had. Overall storyline was very sad and depressing.
