Hide your daughters and your maiden aunts…Lord Samuel Travis is back.
—The London Hearsay, special society edition
Equal parts scoundrel and seducer, he’s returned to London determined to mend the rift with his older brother. All Sam must do is take possession of a tumbledown town house. A seemingly simple task, except the house is occupied—by an infuriating, whip-smart beauty who refuses to do his bidding.
Miss Juliette Lacey’s wallflower days are over. She has a plan to turn her eccentric family into the toast of the ton—but the devilishly handsome rake trying to oust them from their home thwarts her at every turn. How can one man be so vexing and make her simmer with desire?
As her attraction to Sam deepens, Julie’s problems grow—she may have, once upon a time, secretly shared a kiss with his honorable older brother. Suddenly, Julie’s caught between a rogue and a marquess, between passion and respectability. Torn between two brothers, what’s a girl to do?

The Rogue finds love
I voluntarily read a copy thru Netgalley. Sam, a second son, comes to see how ruthless his older brother, Nigel is even though he has presented himself as the pillar of society he is far from it. Nigel is trying to blackmail Julie into becoming his mistress to safe her uncle. Sam meets and quickly falls in love with her. The story is well written and interesting. I would recommend this book for a quick read.
Love a Rouge
Heartwarming and surprising! I really enjoyed this story with several twists and turns. Lord Samuel Travis is the second son of a Duke and has always been at odds with his older brother. Now that there father has died, Sam returns home but soon his brother is fed up with him due to his debauchery. He gives him one last chance to redeem himself by throwing out the tenants of a house he owns so that he can sell it. Well as things often goes, the residents of the home, Miss Juliette Lacey and her uncle are not what he expects and he is persuaded by Julie to give her some time. Then the fun starts or rather the confusion begins!! The characters and dialogue kept me entertained and I did enjoy the storyline. Seeing the emotions build between Sam and Julie had humor and strong attraction with Sam determined to do better for himself. In the end, Love does find a way but you will be delighted at the path it takes to get there!! I read this book through NetGallery
