Goodreads


Three sinfully handsome dukes, three scores to settle, three hearts about to meet their matches. All in one thrilling new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Madeline Hunter . . .

NOTORIOUS NOBLEMAN SEEKS REVENGEName and title: Adam Penrose, Duke of Stratton. Affiliation: London’s elite Society of Decadent Dukes. Family history: Scandalous. Personality traits: Dark and brooding, with a thirst for revenge. Ideal romantic partner: A woman of means, with beauty and brains, willing to live with reckless abandon. Desire: Clara Cheswick, gorgeous daughter of his family’s sworn enemy.

FAINT OF HEART NEED NOT APPLYClara may be the woman Adam wants, but there’s one problem: she’s far more interested in publishing her women’s journal than getting married—especially to a man said to be dead-set on vengeance. Though, with her nose for a story, Clara wonders if his desire for justice is sincere—along with his incredibly unnerving intention to be her husband. If her weak-kneed response to his kiss is any indication, falling for Adam clearly comes with a cost. But who knew courting danger could be such exhilarating fun?

Received for Review (from Author)

This is the first book in Madeline Hunter’s new series and I think you’ll enjoy it. I certainly did. Adam Penrose, Duke of Stratton, has been living for several years in France. When his father committed suicide he and his French mother moved to France. He has returned to England to discover who started the rumors that his father aided the French during the Napoleonic wars. His best friends from childhood, the dukes of Bentwood and Langford, will help him.
 
His country neighbor, the Dowager Countess of Marwood, wants to end the animosity between their families by Adam marrying her youngest granddaughter. She is too young for Adam and when he spies her older half-sister, Clara, he falls for her. Clara is a spirited independent woman. Her father left her some property in the country and she also secretly publishes a London journal. She is attracted to Adam but is not sure about marriage. She has her own London home and comes and goes as she pleases, which makes their affair easier.
 
Adam is determined to marry her and solve the mystery of his father’s death. They do get their HEA but I won’t give away any more of this wonderful story. I’m looking forward to Brentwood and Langford’s HEAs. Thank you for the ARC Madeline Hunter.
