When a Rogue Meets His Match

Hachette Audio. (The Greycourt Series, Bk. 2). Dec. 2020. 1,148p. ISBN 9781549136832. $40.
When Gideon Hawthorne, fixer for the notorious Duke of Windemere, is offered the hand of the woman he’s long pined for, as payment for killing that woman’s brother, Gideon takes the deal. And while Lady Messalina Greycourt is aghast when she learns about the marriage deal her uncle has made, she must accept it to protect her younger sister. As long as Messalina acts the part and helps Gideon gain a place in society, he’ll agree to leave her alone … unless she asks for him. Messalina agrees, thinking she’ll never want a thing from her husband and not knowing he’s meant to kill her brother; but soon she finds she’s falling for him. Gideon too realizes he is falling in love with his wife and hopes he can achieve his goals without having to risk everything. Ashford McNab’s measured, yet lush narration will enthrall readers searching for an epic historical romance escape.
VERDICT Gideon is a highly competent hero who more than meets his match in heroine Messalina, and McNab brings their verbal sparring and chemistry to life.
