Ambrose he’s a duke and handsome and hot Got it But the constant reminders of his title and physiue make him less hot and not duke worthy I wonder what are Ambrose’s hobbies is there to him than thinking that lust is love etc Strangely I like his younger brother Martin betterNonetheless I would give book 2 a try if it were to focus and develop on the Charlie’s Angels in Regency London premise And let the dialogues between the hero and heroine flow continuously without interruptions of perspectives in between what each person said I found myself having to read back a page because I had forgotten what person #1 said after reading paragraph long perspectives about hisher inner thoughts This made it a struggle to want to continue to turn the pages forwardThank you NetGalley and Kensington Publishing for an advanced copy

Is duty bound to protect his family name from scandal no matter the cost But Scarlett's fearless spirit forces him to look beyond his world of privilege Scarlett is as intoxicating as she is dangerous igniting a fire in him like no other But when the pair learn both mysteries they're trying to solve are tied to a string of missing women the tangled scheme they uncover may put their lives and their growing love in mortal danger and lead them to search their hearts like never befor Usually historical fiction with some romance intrigues me However I found the romance aka lust to far overshadow historical aspects and plots Maybe it was my expectations but this book disappointed I wanted to like it Scarlett an unusual woman for the times who wears trousers and carries and uses knives meets Ambrose a manly duke at a brothel But not for THAT reason She is trying to locate her missing friend and he has committed to helping his wayward brother There was immediate chemistry between them But sadly not for me The characters were not likablenot that I need to like thembut I just didn't care I like substance in characters with some semblance of believability but instead they left me seeking Whilst the premise of the darker side was interesting there were several disconnects in the story itself I didn't have the desire to keep reading though I did More historical bits would be lovely but that's just personal preference The sex scenes were toographic and did not add value nor did the characters convince me they were in loveMy sincere thank you to Kensington Books and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
