The last woman on earth he would ever touch . . .
Declan, the Duke of Banbury, has no interest in ushering Rosalie Hughes, his stepsister, into society. Dumped on him with nowhere else to go, he's determined to rid himself of the headstrong debutante by bestowing on her an obscenely large dowry . . . making her the most sought-after heiress of the Season.
. . . is about to become the only one he wants.
But Rosalie isn't about to go along with Declan's plans. Surrounded by fortune hunters, how is she supposed to find a man who truly wants her? Taking control of her fate, Rosalie dons a disguise and sneaks into Sodom, a private club host to all manner of illicit activity—and frequented by her infuriatingly handsome stepbrother.
In a shadowed alcove, Declan can't resist the masked temptress who sets his blood afire . . . any more than Rosalie can deny her longing for a man who will send her into ruin.
When a holiday blizzard brings together a pair of reluctant lovers, the result threatens their reputations … and may cost them their hearts.
Feisty and independent American heiress Violet Howard swears she'll never wed a crusty British aristocrat. Will, the Earl of Merlton, is determined to salvage his family's fortune without succumbing to a marriage of convenience.
But when a snowstorm leaves Violet and Will stranded and alone, their sudden chemistry will challenge good intentions. Seized by a desire that burns through the night, they'll toss reservations aside in favor of the heat found in each other's arms.
Will their passion survive the storm? Will they realize they've found a love to last them through all seasons?
There was once a lady who loathed a lord...
Lady Aurelia hasn't always hated Max, Viscount Camden, her brother's best friend. In fact, as a besotted girl, she thrived under his kind attention—sure that he was the most noble and handsome man in the land. Until her young heart discovered what manner of rogue he really was. Now, though she enjoys nothing more than getting on his last nerve, she can’t deny Max drives her to distraction—even if she tries to pretend otherwise.
...and a lord who was confounded by a lady.
Max cannot recall a time when Aurelia did not vex him. If she was not his friend’s sister, he would stay far away from the infuriating vixen. Unfortunately, they are always thrown together. At parties and family gatherings…she is always there. Infuriating him, tossing punch in his face, driving him mad...until one night, she goes too far and he retaliates in the only way he can: with a kiss that changes everything.
It was a lot of fun to read these books! I have read The Rogue Files series, which comes after this series, so I had to read this series now before I reread The Rogue Files! And yeah, these books were so fantastic to read!
These characters were all pretty close, the first are about a guy and his step-sister, the second the guy is a cousin of the first guy, and the third, the guy is a friend of both the previous guys, and the girl is the sister of the second guy and cousin of the first guy. Yeah.
Each of these couples had their own complications. In Guide to Ruin, they were step-siblings, which is a little bit of a faux pas, but it's not like they were actually related! In All Seasons, she had her love that wasn't appropriate, and then she's not an heiress anymore, which is what he needs. And in Ruin a Rogue, they've had a contentious relationship ever since a series of events that alienated the two of them against the other. But there was still that attraction, which leads to ruin! So great to read!
I wondered how this series was connected to Rogue Files. And it's in All the Ways to Ruin a Rogue when we find out-that Aurelia was courted by Struan, the hero of While the Duke Was Sleeping. So yeah, that was a great connection! And the ending with Struan being married, to Poppy, yeah, that was a fantastic ending!
This series was really great to read, and I can't wait to read more!
