Descripción

A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, the remarkable Lorraine Heath deliciously explores the Pleasures of a Notorious Gentlemen in the scandalously entertaining second installment in her London's Greatest Lovers series. Victorian England is the setting for this captivating historical romance, as the rakish sons of a scandalous Dowager Duchess find passion, pleasure, and, ultimately, love. In Pleasures of a Notorious Gentleman, the black sheep second son back from war is confronted by a beautiful angel of mercy with a baby in her arms—and Heath fans, as well as fans of Lisa Kleypas and Liz Carlyle, will certainly want to know what happens next!

Sobre el autor

When multiple New York Times bestselling author Lorraine Heath received her BA degree in psychology from the University of Texas, she had no idea she had gained a foundation that would help her create believable characters—characters often described as “real people.” The daughter of a British beauty and a Texan stationed at RAF Bovingdon, Lorraine was born in England but soon after moved to Texas. Her dual nationality has given her a love for all things British and Texan, and she enjoys weaving both heritages through her stories.

    This book turned out to be much deeper and much more moving than I expected. Both Stephen and Mercy have been deeply affected by their experiences in the Crimean War -- Mercy as a nurse and Stephen as a cavalry officer. When they meet again in England, Stephen has no memory of Mercy (or of anything that happened to him during the war), and Mercy has an infant who she claims is Stephen's son, the result of just one night of passion.

    Mercy and Stephen do not immediately fall in love. Indeed, they aren't even very comfortable around one another at first. Stephen has no interest in being tied down, especially given his precarious mental state, and he doesn't know if he can bring himself marry her. Mercy doesn't truly expect marriage, and even if they did wed, she knows he will not be faithful. His pre-war reputation as one of London's greatest ladies' men is well known to her.

    Nothing comes easily to this couple, and that's one of the things that makes their story so enjoyable and touching. As in the other two books of this series (about Stephen's brothers), Stephen's family members play important roles, and their duchess mother sometimes steals the show. I wish Heath had given her a book of her own.

    I read these books out of order; each works well as a stand alone. But why not read the entire series? The Kindle versions are priced at only $2.99. A real bargain for such an outstanding author's work.

    PLEASURES OF A NOTORIOUS GENTLEMAN by Lorraine Heath is a delightful historical romance set in 1855 Northamptonshire, England. It is well written with depth,details, twists,turns, a page turner, and a keeper. It is the second in the "London's Greatest Lovers " series but can be read as a stand alone. It has deception,romance,love, sweet sensuality,family, lies,wounded war hero, disgraced war nurse,aftermath of war, redemption, love scandal,loss of memories and trying to do the right thing for the sake of a child. The hero, Stephen, is a wounded war hero, has scars from the war, is a notorious rake,has bedded numerous woman, even during the war in a far off country,has no memory of the last two years in which he was in the war and has no intention of ever marrying. Enter, the heroine, Mercy, is strong-willed, determined, a disgraced war nurse, homely, has taken the responsibility of raising another woman's child and deeply in love with our war hero. When Mercy, takes Stephen's son to his family, she only tells them he is Stephen's and John's mother. She does not know Stephen is not dead. John's birth mother left them in Paris after he was born.

Stephen saved Mercy after she was brutal attacked by three men. They marry are happy for a while, but all does not stay that way. When John's birth mother learns of Stephen being knighted she decides to blackmail Mercy. Of course trouble follows.Will Mercy and Stephen remarry happy or will John's birth mother(Fancy) destroy their love and happiness?Pick up Pleasures of a Notorious Gentleman to find out you will not be sorry you did. Also if you have not read Passions of a Wicked Earl, the first in this series, I would also recommend you do. I would highly recommend this book especially if you enjoy high drama, some sweet sensuality, learning to trust, love and finding happiness in a blurry world with no memories of the past two years and all that happened during war time.This book was received for review from Net Galley and details can be found at Harper Collins Publishers and My Book Addiction and More.
