Book Review-The Devil May Care (Rogues and Gentlemen Book 4)-Emma V Leech

Monday, March 19, 2018

Women were no more then property back when and any man could beat, bully or terrorize any woman under their protection. Millie Sparrow is living with an extremely abusive relative--with only her maid and friend for comfort. She is totally cowed and miserable-there is no way out for her or so she thinks.

Then the fateful day when, totally miserable, she happens upon Beau, the Marquis of Beaumont. Beau is getting ready to leave for France in disgrace. You may remember him from the novel Scandal's Daughter (see my review here) They strike up a friendship and agree to correspond via letters.

Beau's father dies and suddenly he is a Duke and is able to return to England. Taking pity on Millie, he offers her marriage in name only. She accepts and that is where the fun begins! You see Millie has an astonishingly brilliant mind.

I truly LOVED this book and am looking forward to reading more in this series!!

I received an ebook copy of this book for enjoyment and possible review.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Dishonoured and ashamed, the ton's scandalous darling, 'Beau' the Marquis of Beaumont, is forced to flee England to escape debtor's prison.
After a chance encounter, it appears Miss Millicent Sparrow is his only remaining friend, however unlikely.

Miss Sparrow lives up to her name. Damaged and terrified by her cousin's violent abuse, Milly is used to being overlooked and prefers it that way, until the desperation of her bleak world is gilded by rakishly handsome Beau's extraordinary friendship.

Miss Sparrow’s lively letters help Beau through his banishment and when his father dies suddenly and Beau inherits the Dukedom, he seeks out his little bird. To his shock he finds a woman in despair and, moved by pity, he offers her the protection of his name by marriage.

But Milly becomes impossible to overlook, and the more Beau needs his wife, the less interested she seems in her gorgeous husband.

For this rake, getting a woman's attention has never been so complicated.

I received this E-Book from the author for enjoyment purposes and a possible review.

I would have never even gave this book a thought by it's name but, after reading your review it is on my list which is getting shorter each week. I survived winter through my SAD issues by reading your reviews and picking books from here and your Thursday list. Quite often I ended up reading a second or third one in the sets. I am now looking for American Palace Divided Heart and not at $25. Remember me telling you in the fall I wouldn't read ebooks. Haha Thank-you for your blog and reviews. I will be reading this soon it sounds charming and clever on Millie's part.

I saw this book before when I was browsing for covers for a blog post. this is one of the books that I have found used the same image as two other books, well, three if you count the one with the same couple but different pose. I can't help but wonder if the author knows this.

I have the covers shown in a post here: judge books...

have a lovely day.
