About this series:
Three sons of dukes decide to commit a prank on Polite Society and get labelled the Rakes of St. James. But sometimes bad boys grow up to be honorable men.
About this book:
The Duke of Griffin has a problem. He has been labeled a rake by society but now his younger twin sisters are about to enter their first Season. How does he keep young rakes away from his sisters?
Esmeralda Swift is trying to live an honorable life despite the scandal – her mother fell in love with and married an impoverished poet – that ostracized her from the society. Esmeralda and her younger sister live above the employment agency that Esmeralda runs. That is until the Duke makes her an offer she can’t refuse.
I loved this book. Grey hit all the touchpoints. I laughed out loud. I cried. I felt true love between the hero and heroine. I was concerned in the first two chapters as there seemed to be repetitive telling, not showing. By chapter three Grey hit her stride and never looked back. I can’t wait to read book two due out in December 2017.
This series feels like a home run for Grey. I’ll be reviewing book two next, as my review copy arrived last week and I put it right at the top of my to be read pile.
