Taming A Rogue Earl
Lord Lucius Loudoun is capable of success in only two endeavors... work and women. Bedding them, anyway. He's given up trying to accomplish anymore. So why is he even tempted by an innocent like Miss May Stanley?
May has loved Loudoun since she was a child, but he looks straight through her, still treating her like she's a girl of thirteen instead of a woman of twenty. How will she ever convince him to give her a chance?
As the two tangle, attraction ignites, but can that spark become a flame?
Lucius is one guy I have been wanting to learn some background info on. His serious drinking problem almost killed him in the last book I read. Now he is working in America for Barrett Maddox. During his "work", not only does Barrett show up, but he brings along another ghost from Lucius's past. The girl who basically nursed him back to health on his voyage over to America: May. That was six years ago. Now she's a woman of 19 and secretly looking for a husband so she doesn't have to return to England, where she feels she doesn't belong. Lo and behold, she and Lucius have some serious chemistry. However, he thinks he's no good for her and May just wants a chance to find somewhere she belongs. I really enjoyed learning more about Lucius, even if his past is rather heartbreaking. His and May's story was a great read!!
5 out of 5 stars!
