In the latest Disgraced Lords novel from USA Today bestselling author Bronwen Evans, a vivacious thrill seeker clashes with her dutiful defender–causing irresistible sparks to fly.
Independent and high-spirited, Lady Portia Flagstaff has never been afraid to take a risk, especially if it involves excitement and danger. But this time, being kidnapped and sold into an Arab harem is the outcome of one risk too many. Now, in order to regain her freedom, she has to rely on the deliciously packaged Grayson Devlin, Viscount Blackwood, a man who despises her reckless waysâand stirs in her a thirst for passion.After losing his mother and two siblings in a carriage accident years ago, Grayson Devlin promised Portia’s dying brother that he’d always watch over his wayward sister. But having to travel to Egypt to rescue the foolhardy girl has made his blood boil. Grayson already has his hands full trying to clear his best friend and fellow Libertine Scholar of a crime he didn’t commit. Worse still, his dashing rescue has unleashed an unforeseen and undesired consequence: marriage. Now it’s more than Portia he has to protect . . . it’s his battered heart.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
Thank you first of all to NetGalley and Random House Loveswept for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.
As many of you know I have been following this series since I came across the first book probably about a year ago. And have read the other 2 books (which I highly recommend doing since there are a few events that run concurrent along with this book). Now because I did read the other books in order and knew that there was something that was important that we would learn from Portia and Grayson’s story I was anxious to get to it. And let me tell you that Bronwen didn’t disappoint with the information that we learn about who is trying to hurt the Disgraced Lords. I love that they are getting so much closer, but also that as time goes on these men are finding love. Another thing that I have to say, and only because I love the military the fact that Bronwen touches on things that many of men and women (veterans) are still dealing with today does it add to my emotional feeling about this book. I will admit that for a lot of this book I did do quite a bit of crying. Grayson and Portia’s pasts, their guilt and feelings over her brother, and the fact that Grayson spends to much time working hard on not letting people in. Oh just so many emotions were hit on during this book that its hard to sit here and tell you each of them without giving the book away. So I will just tell you that you won’t regret sitting down to read this book.
Happy Reading… Adri
