A Rogue’s Rules for Seduction

Now that the rakish Ransome brothers are off the marriage mart, the roguery is left to their longtime friend Dom Kilburn, yet there’s only one woman for Dom. Fans of Leigh’s “Last Chance Scoundrels” series (whose most recent entry was How the Wallflower Was Won) will recall that it all started with Dom’s disastrous wedding to Willa Ransome. In this third installment, the two are finally, fatefully reunited when friends convince them to unknowingly attend the same hedonistic Hebrides house party. Each thought it would be the perfect chance to forget their failed romance, but the remote location ends up freeing Dom and Willa from strict social standards, allowing them to confront their pasts and realize that there is more to the other than either of them ever knew. This fast-paced Regency romance features lush, descriptive detail and witty, well-developed characters. The love scenes are not just steamy, they sizzle; suffice it to say, Dom lives up to his name, and Willa is no wilting flower.
VERDICT Leigh’s series installment will appeal to readers seeking a scintillating historical romance that is engaging and erotic, a heartwarming reunion with more than one happy ending. Recommended for fans of Tessa Dare, Ella Quinn, and Sarah MacLean.
