He's notoriously wicked. She's a wallflower guarding her heart.

The Duke of Montrose has perfected the art of being a scoundrel. Mistresses? He's had an endless procession of them. Gin-soaked nights? He's experienced more than he can count. He'll do anything to distract himself from the demons of his past. Until the day his devil-may-care ways leave his best friend gravely injured. Now, he's determined to make amends at any cost. Fortunately, he knows just where to begin.

The Honorable Miss Hattie Lethbridge is quite happy being a wallflower, thank you very much. She would far prefer to spend an evening curled up with her cat than whirling about a ballroom. When her brother's scapegrace friend, the Duke of Montrose, proposes they marry, she is equally determined to refuse his suit.

The more she denies him, the more resolute Monty is that Hattie must be his. Much to her dismay, Hattie finds herself warming to the wickedest duke in London. But Monty is keeping dangerous secrets, and when Hattie discovers what he's been hiding, any hope for a future together may be forever lost.


Monty, Duke of Montrose is known to society as the Duke of Debauchery and he has always lived like that description.  However a recent accident shook him up enough to make a few changes.  The biggest being the wish to marry,  and who better than the wallflower sister of the friend that was also in the accident.  That will help ease his conscience.
Miss Hattie Lethbridge is trying to cope with the changes in her brother.  She has never blamed the Duke for the accident so she will not allow herself to be used to salve his conscience. The man carries big secrets that cause him to behave in a reprehensible manner.  
This is a sexy historical romance where our hero has a problem with addiction.  Can our heroine force him to face the demon once she finds out?? It's quite an emotional story at times but mostly very sexy.  
This is part of a series that should be read in order, but each book can be read alone.  
I loved it.
