This review is brought to you by Camille, a.k.a “The Angry Reader“.
I love her reviews and we seem to share a common taste for awesome books and blunt reviews. Check out her blog at The Angry Reader where the motto is “Painfully Honest Book Reviews“!
I smiled through most of this read and now I’m wondering if the rest of the series is this good.
Hide your daughters and your maiden aunts…Lord Samuel Travis is back.
—The London Hearsay, special society edition
Equal parts scoundrel and seducer, he’s returned to London determined to mend the rift with his older brother. All Sam must do is take possession of a tumbledown town house. A seemingly simple task, except the house is occupied—by an infuriating, whip-smart beauty who refuses to do his bidding.
Miss Juliette Lacey’s wallflower days are over. She has a plan to turn her eccentric family into the toast of the ton—but the devilishly handsome rake trying to oust them from their home thwarts her at every turn. How can one man be so vexing and make her simmer with desire?
As her attraction to Sam deepens, Julie’s problems grow—she may have, once upon a time, secretly shared a kiss with his honorable older brother. Suddenly, Julie’s caught between a rogue and a marquess, between passion and respectability. Torn between two brothers, what’s a girl to do?

I haven’t read the first two books in this series, but that didn’t stop me from being swept up in Sam and Julie from page 1.
Shit. Sam vaguely remembered losing a vast sum at the hazard tables. Followed by a shoving match with an earl who’d mocked him. And at the very end of the night…bloody hell.
Ne’er-do-well Sam has to kick Julie and her uncle out of their family home. Smart, responsible Julie doesn’t want to be kicked out. While Sam tries to figure out if he wants to help her or evict her his brother decides to offer his own form of (completely inappropriate!!!) “help.” A witty, gentle, and fun story evolves – with just enough spice to keep me hooked. I smiled through most of this read (except twice when I got sooooo mad at the bad guy). And now I’m wondering if the rest of the series is this good.
I fell in love with you. Hard. Hopelessly. Every decision I’ve made since then has been easy. I simply ask myself what would make you smile. And then I do that thing.
Anna Bennett started swiping romances from her mom’s bookshelf as a teenager and decided historicals (with their balls, dukes, and gowns) were the best. So, when she had the chance to spend a semester in London she packed her bags—and promptly fell in love with the city, its history, and its
pubs. She dreamed of writing romance, but somehow ended up a software analyst instead.
Fortunately, a few years and a few careers later, Anna found her way back to writing the stories she loves and won the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart® for Regency Historical Romance. She lives in Maryland with her husband and three children, who try valiantly not to roll their eyes
whenever she quotes Jane Austen. Her weaknesses include reality TV, cute shoes, and coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.
By the way, Anna wrote some books under the pen name Anne Barton/
