The head of his noble family, the dark and dangerous Duke of Blackheath spends his time manipulating other lives without giving a thought to finding a wife of his own. Yet Lucien must admit he finds exquisite Eva de la Mouriére most intriguing. What adventurous, red-blooded male would not be intrigued by a flame-haired beauty who appears in his chambers demanding that he make love to her? Certainly this hot-tempered minx would make a delightful bedmate —- though surely not a bride.
Eva knows Lucien is the cause of all her current misfortunes, yet he refuses to be humiliated. But the worst betrayer is her own heart. No match for Lucien’s seductive mastery, Eva craves the blackguard as she’s never craved another. She must resist this rogue, but how long can she deny her own passion—or Lucien’s blossoming genuine love—in the face of his scheming family’s successful attempts to force a wedding?
After finding the first of this series – The Wild One – free on Amazon, and to my amazement I enjoyed it thoroughly, so much so that I had to buy the rest of these series. Danelle Harmon is an exceptional writer. I love how she creates her men, she writes them with such great detail and make them highly humorous.
Lucien de Mortforte need I say more? What a devilish man he is. By reading the other three books from this series I had no idea that I would enjoy an indulge in this man’s wicked story. No wonder he is the wicked one, sweet Jesus that man is cunning and sinfully delicious with that wicked devilish smile. I loved how he always did his best to annoy and get under Eva’s skin. His snide cocky confident remarks just tickled my innards. I thought Gareth and Charles ranked at the top of my list but now come on… how us a girl suppose to chose…complete torture!
