Exciting and Different
The poor and desperate Andrew Black the Earl of Townson is recruited to ruin a young girl from the Banks family by Benjamin Collins, the Duke of Gateway.
The Duke was rejected by Miss Brooke Banks and the Duke is determined to make the whole family suffer. He wants them all to leave and return to the states. He has the deed to a piece of property that the Earl wants. They strike a bargain and the Earl is off to the Banks family residence to choose among the three daughters: Liberty, Madison and Brooke. Andrew sets his sights on Brooke immediately and becomes fascinated by her. Brooke falls for the poor Earl and determines she will have him so when he kisses her she allows him liberties and soon finds herself ruined.
Andrew isn't sure about the agreement any more when he becomes enamored with Brooke, but it seems it is already too late for Brooke's reputation.
This is an exciting Regency and I found it different and intriguing. I enjoyed reading it. I give it Five stars for character development and plot. This was a different kind of regency where the heroes were not very heroic looking because of their schemes. I was glad that the hero finally woke up.
I recommend this Regency read to everyone who loves regency romance.
