When a loathsome rake steals one of her most cherished family heirlooms--and nearly her virtue as well!--Francesca Dunroy devises the perfect plan to put him in his place. At a ball being held in her honor--she didn't "take" in her first season, now her family is determined to get her a match in her second--she'll offer him a clandestine kiss sure to convince him to return what is rightfully hers. But in the dark hallways surrounding the ballroom, Francesca makes a terrifying mistake. She seduces the wrong man! The recipient of Francesca's caresses is none other than Justin Maddox, London's newly titled duke and most eligible bachelor. A defiant Scotsman who disdains London society, he's sworn to steer clear of the ladies of the ton, but he can't escape the memory of Francesca urgently pressing her lips upon his . . . and neither can she. But when a shocking and dangerous secret from Justin's past resurfaces, the couple will have to risk tattered reputations and treacherous enemies to nurture what has quickly become true love.… (mais)

The book starts off with Phillip (Justin's bro from the previous book) signing away the Dukedom to Justin. An interesting beginning but the bickering between Phillip and Justin was honestly very childish at times. We get it Justin wants to make his own way in the world and not just be given the title of Duke.
Right off the bat Francesca and Justin seem like two immature selfish characters.
I thought it was a bit presumptuous of Francesca to grow angry at Justin for taking her virginity. She never told him no, in fact was quite encouraging. After her coming at him on the terrace and then finding her in another man's apartment in men's clothes I can see how he was mislead in her true nature.
The whole ordeal with Justin's first wife Moira was wrapped up to cleanly; the author portrayed her as maniacal and then had her just giving up Justin. Moira had deranged stalker written all over her and then the author just had her calmly walking away.
I never understood why Justin and Francesca were attracted to each other. I think the author wanted to show them as independent strong willed people but failed horribly and made them into immature, selfish, braying jackasses.
The book was awful. I read the entirety of it but did employ some speed reading tactics. AVOID!

Quite enjoyable, quick read. Interesting enough to hold one's interest. Not great literature, but fun. I would read more by this author. ( )
