This is book 4 in the Distinguished Rogues series, but has characters from Hunting the Hero as the H/H and secondary characters.
Arabella Lawson, Lady Farnsworth, has come to London to find a lover after an unfulfilled marriage. While chaperoning her niece during her first season, Arabella is hoping to find a kind lover to rid her of her innocence. Unfortunately, her unruly niece has kept her on her toes and hasn't left much time for search for that perfect person.
On one of her many searches for her wayward niece, Arabella falls into one of Lord Rothwell's assignations. Merrick Bishop, the Earl of Rothwell, can't believe that he has Lady Farnsworth in his arms. What must she think of him now?
Arabella's brother in law is going to force her to remarry. With no family of her own, she turns to Merrick for help. Merrick can't believe his luck. As his friendship with Arabella grows, so do the secret feelings he has felt for her. Can he convience Arabella to take a second chance at marriage?
I really enjoyed this story. Merrick is suppose to have such a bad reputation, but the fact that he has taken in all of his father's illegitimate children and given them jobs shows that there is much more to the man than we first thought. He also thought so much of Arabella, that he didn't push her in anyway towards something intimate. Although at times, I just wanted to tell him to go for it!
This is my first book by this author and I will definitely be back for more.
You can get this book at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iBooks.
