Summary

She spied him in the shadows...

And in an instant, Thalia Langley knew the man before her was no saint. He might claim to be the Duke of Hollindrake's unassuming country cousin, but no man that handsome, that arresting, could be anything but...well, he simply must be an unrepentant rogue. His cat-like grace and power leave Tally shivering in her slippers at the notion of all the wicked, forbidden things he might be capable of doing...to her.

Indeed, Lord Larken is no bumbling vicar, but a master spy there in his majesty's service to find - and murder - a notorious pirate freed in a daring prison escape. Devoted to the Crown, Larken's not about to let an interfering (and not entirely innocent) Mayfair miss disrupt his ruthless plans. Yet how can he be anything but tempted by this lady in a little black gown...a dress tantalizing enough to lead even Larken astray.

Beautiful historical romance!

Elizabeth Boyle is one of my very favorite historical romance writers. Her novels are funny, lighthearted, engaging, clever, and very romantic.
The story of Dash and Pippin continues when he is broken out of prison and Lord Larken is sent to investigate. Romance is found with Tally Langley...Suspense guaranteed!
Great performance as always. Susan Duerden is a great narrator!
So It was a really entertaining read.
I can't wait to start the next novel in the series!

Happy to see more in this series

While I am happy to see more in this series. I’m confused on a couple points and I don’t feel the book did a good job of wrapping up Pippen and the proclamation at the end. Too many loose ends. And Temple’s role in the story knowing his history with the girls was a stretch.

Adventuress Regency Misses Fall in Love

Enjoyed the story. Unusual yet pretty plausible. Listened to the audible book. Had trouble putting it down. Only issue, the narrator pronounced “harrumph” in a way that made no sense. Otherwise she did well.

good

I have to admit, this listen did take a few chapters in for me to really like it. Funny, a little sex, mystery and suspense. I do think the editor could of done a better job of keeping the "hhrrmph" something better than the way Ms Duerden says it. All in all , I did enjoy this book. I also only listened to book # 1 and that might of been why it took me several chapters to get into this book. Enjoy!😄
