Love this series !!
Thoroughly enjoying this series so far !! So great to have be able to stay with the same writer book after book! I look forward to more books from her !
Companion Ivy Breckenridge is a woman with a mysterious past, even to her closest friends. As the final member of the League of Invincibles to be unmarried, her friends want her to find the same happiness they has all found. Ivy still finds comfort and safety in her unmarried state and finds marriage deplorable.
The Duke of Desire, Sebastian Westgate, is a notorious rake with a penchant for affairs with married women. He enjoys the ladies and helps them with their marriages.
Both Westgate and Ivy can agree that marriage is not for them, but neither can deny their mutual attraction to each other. In the fourth Untouchables book, we finally learn about Ivy's past. She has remade herself from a terrible, tragic, past. I could not put this one down. IT is by far the best book in the series. I'm curious, though, to see if the League of Invincibles will add to their numbers. Guess I will have to wait for The Duke of Defiance to find out.
I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
Not much to recommend
The book was alright. It lacked in depth, historical knowledge, and was quite one dimensional.
