This historical certainly kept me turning the pages to find out what happens next! Phoebe Hillier has been living as everyone in society thinks she should. However, she has been hiding an intelligent mind and a wish to escape her hum drum life. Her Aunt lives with her since both her parents are dead. Engaged to a man she really does not care much about she figures at least he is harmless. Until the night of a ball when her fiance breaks it off with her and gives her some confusing reasons.

Enter the Duke of Whittaker--according to all the rumors is a rake of the worst sort. He has also been living a lie--but you will have to read to find out why! One thing is for certain--he is really good at climbing---

It takes quite a bit for them to trust each other from the people who are attempting to get to either of them.

Will they track down the people behind the conspiracy to get the Prime Minister murdered? Will they be able to save the man who is to hang for the murder? Will they live happily after after? All will be answered once you have read this novel which I really enjoyed and think you will as well.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

The Duke of Wittaker has been living a lie...

He’s been spying on the dissolute, discontented noblemen of the ton, pretending to share their views. Now he’s ready to step out of the shadows and start living a real life...but when the prime minister of England is assassinated, he's asked to go back to being the rake-hell duke everyone still believes he is to find out more.

Miss Phoebe Hillier has been living a lie, too...

All her life she's played the game, hiding her fierce intelligence and love of life behind a docile and decorous mask. All it's gotten her is jilted by her betrothed, a man she thought a fool, but a harmless one. But when she discovers her former fiancé was involved in the plot against the prime minister, and that he's been murdered, she realizes he wasn't so harmless after all.

And now the killers have set their sights on her...

The only man who can help her is the Duke of Wittaker--a man she knows she shouldn't trust. And she soon realizes he's hiding behind a mask as careful as her own. As the assassin steadfastly vows he acted alone, and as the clock ticks down to his trial, the pair scramble to uncover the real conspiracy. And as the pressure and the danger mounts, Phoebe and Wittaker shed their disguises, layer by layer, to discover something more precious than either imagined–something that could last forever. Unless the conspirators desperate to hide their tracks get to them first.

Note: A Dangerous Madness is connected to the other novels in the Regency London series through an overlap of characters, but each novel is complete on its own, and you do not have to read them in order.
