Book Review-One Wicked Winter (Rogues and Gentlemen Book 6)-Emma V Leech

Wednesday, May 9, 2018

This is book #6 in this series and I have read them all--can you tell I love them? The women are strong and cunning--not afraid to do what has to be done to either snag a man or make him come around to her way of thinking!

Edward Greyston is a man who can't let go of the nightmares from the war. At first he was presumed dead--but had amnesia of sorts and really didn't know who he was. His sister heard that he might still be alive (book #5-read my review here)and runs away from home to find him. She does and brings him home--but he is withdrawn and does not like company--but he does love his sister so agrees to a party to be held in honor of her marriage. He dreads it!!

Belinda Holbrook has good reason to want to find a husband and quickly. Her aunt has threatened to throw her out--and she is worried for her little sister! Belinda and Edward are like oil and water. He figures out that she is about to trick one of his unsuspecting friends into marriage--he steps in and gets caught himself!!

Belinda is no wilting flower and proceeds to make the best of this marriage to Edward---it takes nerves of steel and the flaunting of unladylike behavior--

I believe that you will really enjoy this tale. It can be read as a stand alone but I think you will enjoy the entire series!

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

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Blackmailed by his sister into giving a Christmas house party to celebrate her recent marriage, Edward Greyston, Marquess of Winterbourne, is quite certain the next few days will be an utter nightmare.

Nightmares, however, are something Edward is all too familiar with. After the bloody battle of Waterloo, he has returned from the war a changed man, full of rage and guilt.

Suspecting one of his house guests, the bluestocking Belinda Holbrook, is about to trap unsuspecting and gullible Lord Nibley into marriage, he goes to warn him, only to get caught himself.

Furious but honour bound to do the right thing, Edward finds himself married to a woman he doesn't trust and knows nothing about, and he has no intention of trying to find out more.

Yet Belinda is made of sterner stuff and refuses to be afraid of the angry man she married. Somehow she determines to melt icy Lord Winterbourne's frozen heart, and she's prepared to be wicked to do it.

Belinda has way more staying power me I hide from grouchy people. I will love this book because it is from the 1800's, there is a strong female character and a man that looks like he'll be put in his place. I also like it because I enjoy series of books.
