When the Duke Was Wicked by Lorraine Heath
Publisher: Avon Romance
Publication date: February 25, 2014
Series: Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James
Summary (from the author's website):
A little more info about WHEN THE DUKE WAS WICKED. Yes, it is a new series - The Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James. Although you may remember Henry (Duke of Lovingdon) as the little boy in Between the Devil and Desire, the one who wanted a puppy. Lady Grace Mabry is Frannie and Sterling's daughter from Surrender to the Devil. Here is the blurb:
They are England’s most eligible bachelors, with the most scandalous reputations. But for the right woman, even an unrepentant rogue may mend his ways…
Lady Grace Mabry’s ample inheritance has made it impossible for her to tell whether a suitor is in love with her—or enamored of her riches. Who better to distinguish beau from blackguard than her notorious childhood friend, the Duke of Lovingdon?
With no interest in marriage, Lovingdon has long lived only for pleasure. He sees little harm in helping Grace find a proper match. After all, he’s familiar with all the ploys a scoundrel uses to gain a woman’s favor. He simply has to teach the lovely innocent how to distinguish honest emotions from false ones. How better than by demonstrating his wicked ways. But as lessons lead to torrid passion and Grace becomes ensnared in another man’s marriage plot, Lovingdon must wage a desperate gamble: Open his heart fully—or risk losing the woman he adores…

I really, really enjoyed reading Lorraine Heath's Surrender to the Devil. At the end epilogue the heroine Frannie mentioned about her daughter's marriage to the Duke of Lovingdon, and at the time I wondered if those two will ever get their own book. And my question is answered! I really can't wait to read this book. Perhaps we'll see Frannie and Sterling as well. :)
