My Ruthless Prince by Gaelen Foley
4th Book in the Inferno Club Series
His brother warriors fear the Earl of Westwood has turned traitor, but Emily Harper knows this is impossible for the man she has loved since childhood...as impossible as a marriage between them could ever be--she, the gamekeeper's daughter and he, a bold and adventurous nobleman.
Driven by hatred and revenge, Westwood is playing a deadly game of deception, bent on destroying the enemy's dark conspiracy from the inside, and he's furious when Emily plunges herself into danger for his sake. Forced into close quarters, their long-suppressed desire explodes into all-consuming passion.
Emily knows her love can save him...but Westwood is a man who doesn't want to be saved.
This is the 4th book in the Inferno Club series.
This book is not a stand alone.... ....I feel it will help you if you've read the other books in this series or I feel you will be lost even though Ms. Foley does do a very good job in bringing up the back story.
Emily and Drake, the Earl of Westwood were childhood friends and grand rivalries until the Seeker came for Drake. Drake is a member of the Order of St. Michael the Archangel. Emily follows Drake to Walfort Castle which is a stronghold for the Prometheans which had held Drake there earlier as a prisoner and were he was torture. Drake was saved by James Falkirk and Drake is now his personal guard. Emily is out to save Drake.
From the time that Emily is caught in the woods and brought to the castle this book will keep you on the edge of your seat. The love that Drake and Emily have for each other and Emily's devotion to Drake just wants you to say AHH!
This book is a really page turner and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. Drake does do and say some things that make you just want to slap him but you understand why as you continue to read the story.
The other members of the Inferno Club are on a chase to catch the head Promethean's son who has escaped from their cell and is also headed to Walfort Castle. The ending of the story keeps you on the edge of your seat.
I really enjoyed this book and Ms. Foley gives us a sneak peek at our next hero and heroine.
I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review.
Did you ever finish reading a book and say AHHHHH!! Well, that's what I did at the end of this book.
Our heroine Phoebe Vale is a school teacher and is hired by Lisbeth Redmond to be her paid companion for a house party.
Our hero Julian Spenser, Marquess Dryden knows what he wants and when he talks the ton listens and follows in his footsteps.
This book has two unique character as their lifestyles which is as different as night and day.
The story opens up with the hero after being shot staggering into the Pig & Thistle and starts to fall to the floor were he is caught by Colin Eversea. As they bring Julian to a room in starts talking about some women not even pretty and talking nonsense. The story then goes back six weeks earlier when Phoebe and Julian first meet at Postlethwaite's Emporium of Lady's Goods who is there to buy Lisbeth a fan. Phoebe overs another visitor bet Dryden 10 pounds that he can't get Phoebe to kiss him.
At the house party Phoebe gets Julian to do things that he's never done before. As they both start to fall for each other and fight their true feelings. Dryden is at house party to start to woo Lisbeth Redmond. The Redmonds hold a piece of land that was once in his family and Dryden wants the land back. Phoebe is aware that Julian is at the house party to woo Lisbeth but that doesn't stop her from staying away from him.
The Silverton sisters - Marie and Antoinette invite Phoebe to their house in London for a fortnight to attend parties and balls with them. Lisbeth is not happy to have Phoebe at the Silverton's residence as she is invited too.
While at White's one day Dryden overhears Waterburn and d'Andre making bets in a the bookie book but doesn't pay attention. Phoebe becomes the belle of the ball much to the surprise of Dryden and Lisbeth.
It was fun to see Phoebe enjoying herself and seeing both of them fight their feelings for each other. Dryden trying to do the "right" thing and woo Lisbeth and trying to stay away from Phoebe. Phoebe trying to stop her feelings for Dryden and for the first time enjoying life.
I was surprised to see Lisbeth turn into the villainess but she the Silverton twins, Waterburn and d'Andre and get their just rewards.
This book had me laughing out loud with the banter between Dryden and Phoebe.
Although I'm still waiting for Lyon and Olivia's story I hope Ms. Long does a story on Lisbeth's brother Jonathan who you just fall in love with.
I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review.
