                                     Some men thrive on scandal.

Lord James Hamilton, heir to the Duke of Abercorn and newly appointed attendant to the young Prince of Wales, is in no rush to find a wife and take on a more responsible life. A lover of all things pleasurable, James has earned his reputation as a rakehell of London. But when a feisty beauty piques his interest, James finds himself obsessed with learning more about her, and even contemplates making her his own.
Lady Anne Curzon-Howe has long been besotted with her dear friends' handsome elder brother, James--ever since the moment he compared her to a wild Irish rose. While Anne has many suitors, the elusive James is the only man who draws her fancy. But Lord Hamilton's rakish ways are notorious for a reason, and convincing him to love only her will be an incredible--albeit rewarding--challenge....

Lord Rakehell review:
"Known for both saucy, sexy historical romances and accurate fictionalized historical biographies, Henley delivers the fourth and final volume of her Peers of the Realm quartet."
