Meet the unforgettable men of London's most notorious tavern, The Wicked Duke. Seductively handsome, with charm and wit to spare, one night with these rakes and rogues will never be enough...

Jack Barrett is an ambitious member of parliament with no time or desire for a wife. When he catches the Duke of Eastleigh’s sister sneaking inside one of London’s private gentlemen’s clubs, he’s shocked—and dangerously charmed—and assumes the role of protector, only to discover she has the means to destroy him.

Social pariah Lady Viola Fairfax masquerades as a man to pen a column in a popular women’s magazine. When she stumbles upon a brewing scandal that implicates a prominent MP, she seizes the chance to establish herself as a real journalist. However, the infuriating and intoxicating man may not be the radical he’s purported to be, and the more time they spend together, the more she risks the one thing she’s sworn never to do: fall in love.


Mr Jack Barrett is an MP,  as his father and grandfather before him were.  It's not an easy time in British politics.  Not everyone agrees with the way "Prinny" behaves and there has been trouble on the streets. 
Lady Viola Fairfax is the sister of a Duke.  She caused a scandal years before by crying off on her wedding. Now she also masquerades as a man who writes a column in a ladies periodical. 
This is a lovely mischievous historical romance.  The characters are so much fun.  There is political intrigue and a little danger.  It is part of a series where you might have met some of the characters before,  but you can easily read it on it's own. 
Thoroughly enjoyable story,  I loved it.
