Historical romance /to review

Prudence and Leo, oh Leo, later he wonders why society gives her the cut. Like hello Leo! You will see.

Prudence was ruined by a man she thought would marry her. Her father threw her out. He friends stayed by her, but she feels she is out of options. Her solution, yikes, I mean she never wants to do the disgusting thing again, but she she agrees to become a mistress. And he thinks she has spread it around since that is obvious what she was up to after her fall from grace.

First, really Leo? Why believe that from the sweetest innocent woman you have met? But then he does not trust anyone cos women are evil (and yes he was hurt bad in the past). But he is really nice to her and falls fast.

As for Prudence, well I get why she chose this road, but wherever she would have hidden afterwards the truth would have found her and she would have shunned again.

But luckily this is a romance, they will fall in love and live happily ever after. And the ton can't shun her anymore.

I enjoyed it. I did want to slap them both over the head a few times, but then the road to love can't be easy

Good narration, but then Justine Eyre is one of my favorite narrators. She does historical romance so well!

Ruined debutante Prudence Thorogood lost everything when she was ousted from polite society, including her inheritance. Now she’ll do anything to take back what’s hers...even if she has to steal it. Accepting a scandalous offer from Lord Savage seems like the perfect solution to disguise her criminal intentions from the ton. Until she discovers that there’s more to this scoundrel than meets the eye.

Leo Ramsgate, Marquess of Savage, has everything except for a heart. That organ dried up long ago after a devastating betrayal. Since then, he vowed never to trust or love again. He ensures that his dalliances are mutually satisfying, but always temporary...until he meets the reserved Miss Thorogood. Not one of his previous lovers has ever beguiled him the way she does. Not one has made him want to break his own rules. Not one has tempted him to keep her...forever. 

Prue has every intention of disappearing from London after their affair ends. But her plan falters when she finds herself falling hopelessly in love with a man who may never love her in return. With time running out and so much at stake, she cannot help but wonder.... 


  1. Oh this is an interesting premise

  2. It's good knowing they'll get over it because it's a romance but annoying to have to wait for it lol
