A secret society of younger sons, sworn to aid and abet each other, no matter the scandal or cost…. Their fathers and brothers may rule the world, but they run it . . . and when it comes to passion, they refuse to accept second best.
Searching for hidden treasure,
finding forbidden fantasy.
London’s most sensual former courtesan, Viola Whedon, is incapable of being seduced-she does the seducing. Until she meets Leonidas Vaughn. Her salacious memoirs have made her the target of half the lords in England, and Vaughn is the only man she can turn to. When he promises to protect her-and to make her beg for his touch-the alluring beauty finds both offers impossible to refuse.
Leonidas Vaughn secretly believes Viola possesses a fortune given to his family by the King of France. So the strong and sexy Vaughn charms his way into Viola’s life . . . and her bed. But when their arrangement is consummated, he’ll experience pleasure far beyond his wildest fantasies-and realize his heart may need the most protection of all.
About the Author
ISOBEL CARR is single, child-free, and a committed “dog person” (the bigger the dog the better). She has taught creative writing, horseback riding, and seminars on historical costuming. She can start a fire without matches and hitch a team of horses to a wagon. She can also spend nine hours in a Victorian corset without a problem but can’t wear heels for more than four hours. She laughed all the way through every episode of Colonial House, and if she could only watch one movie for the rest of her life, it would be Impromptu.

Viola Wheadon is writing her memoirs and the aristocracy are waiting with bated breathe in what is sure to be a tell all of epic proportions. As the best know courtesan of the era and it promises to be the scandal of the season. When she someone breaks into her town home, Lord Vaughn offers his protection, things heat up between the two, even though he has an ulterior motive. He belongs to a secret society called the League of Second Sons, that are just that, second sons of the ruling class. They plot and plan to actually run things.
This is such a nice break from most historical romances since there is no simpering virgins that are strong, but unsure of their sexual appetite. Viola knows what she likes and how to get it. Yes, this book is worth every cent if you are looking for a strong female with lots of steamy sex. Seriously, this is one amazing debut and the League of Second Sons that Leonides belongs to promises to provide enough intrigue to keep this series going for a long time. The next in the series, Ripe for Scandal, will be released in August and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
