She’s a servant masquerading as a lady…

Gillian Beaumont never had a fairytale life: she was left penniless after her father’s death, forcing her into service as a lady’s maid. Luckily, her mistress is more adventurous than most ladies and soon Gillian is aiding her espionage. One such spy mission forces Gillian to masquerade as a high-born lady to infiltrate a Hellfire Club. But when she falls into the club’s trap, she’s rescued by gentleman rogue, the Earl of Pembroke. His heated kisses make her long for a different life, but she has a secret that could destroy everything…

He’s a gentleman on the outside, but a rogue on the inside…

James Fordyce, Earl of Pembroke, tries to be a well-behaved man—for the most part. A member of the Wicked Earls’ Club, he has his fair share of notoriety, but he’s longing for the day when he might settle down. A chance encounter with a mysterious beauty leaves him feeling full of hope. When she vanishes without a trace and danger seems to be following her, he knows he must find her and rescue the woman he is determined to make the future Countess of Pembroke. Tracking her down to the seedy halls of a Hellfire Club, he knows he’ll have to fight against all odds to save her before it’s too late…

REVIEW

I was a bit disappointed in this offering in the Wicked Earls’ Club series. It didn’t feel like it belonged in the series. The hero didn’t seem to have a bit of rogue in him though he is likable. I was left wanting to know the background of how these two originally met, which apparently is covered in another series, The League of Rogues Club, which I have not read.  I felt a chunk of their history is missing since throughout the book it mentions a few times of their first meeting. I liked the premise for the story but I think the story would have benefitted to have their prior meeting(s) told especially since it’s stated that it can be read as a standalone.  If you can overlook missing part of their story, then this is a satisfying read.
