“ARC given for an honest review”
A writer for the Ladies Gazette, Miss Ophelia Dauntry’s passion is her pen. So when she sees a fellow writer kidnapped before her eyes—and the trail of evidence leads to the Lords of Anarchy—Ophelia vows to find her friend and take down the notorious London driving club in her column. But before she can argue her case, she needs the inside scoop from its newest leader: Piers Hamilton, the Duke of Trent.
Headstrong, handsome Trent joined the Lords of Anarchy after a decade in the British Army. He’s made it his business to tame the misbehavior within the driving club—and the infuriatingly attractive Ophelia is only getting in his way. The deeper she digs into the case, the more she puts her own life at risk. Can Trent convince Ophelia to trust him to seek justice…and find protection, and passion, in his arms?
The club members were acquitting themselves rather well among polite society, thought Piers Hamilton, Duke of Trent, the latest president of the Lords of Anarchy, as he surveyed them mingling with the highest sticklers of the ton
Piers Hamilton, the Duke of Trent has inherited a mess when he becomes the leader of the Lords of Anarchy. He’s been working hard to get new members to replace some of the older members who haven’t quite been following the rules and have been using their name to wreak havoc.
Ophelia Daunty writes for the Ladies Gazette about needlework and would like to be writing about something with a little more meat on it. She crosses paths with Piers and they both go on a little adventure/detective work around psychiatrists of the time committing sane people into asylums when certain members of the family wants it.
I liked Ophelia and I liked Trent but I didn’t feel that they had much chemistry together as a couple. I loved the mystery and detective work that was part of the story. It was intriguing and I found the topic very interesting. But the romance between the two was a little weak.
