About the book:
Notorious whip Giles Langford is surprised to learn his blacksmith is a girl, shocked to realize she’s the out-of-his-league sister of a duke, and horrified to discover he’s fallen in love with the impossible-to-tame woman anyway. With no money and no title, Giles has nothing to offer but his heart…
Felicity Sutton knows poverty firsthand, and she’s never going back. She might miss the smithy, but not the relentless desperation of no home and an empty belly. Of course she’ll accept the stability of a wealthy ton suitor. As for the penniless daredevil she loves, well… At least they’ll have one night to remember.

Genre: Regency Romance
Series: Wicked Dukes Club #5
My thoughts: A perfect mix of seriousness and fun made this book a quick read. The hero and heroine are both characters that I enjoyed reading about and I loved the idea of a titled person, in this case, a woman, marrying a commoner. I’m not sure that I’ve ever read a story with this scenario before and I found it deliciously refreshing.
The author’s writing, as always, is superb and she has a way of drawing readers into the story and making them feel part of the action. And there’s plenty of action in this book! I love the descriptions that make it so easy to picture what is happening in the story.
This book is the 5th in the series but can be read as a standalone. It is a must-read for fans of the genre and a great way introduction to the author’s writing. A book that simply can’t be missed. Happy reading!!!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and wasn’t required to write a review. All opinions are mine.
