The Bride Wore Scarlet by Liz Carlyle

Goodreads Description:

Passion and secrets simmer behind the elegant faÇade of Victorian London in another deliciously intriguing novel featuring the mysterious men of the St. James Society.
AnaÏs de Rohan has faced danger in her past, but never anything so great as posing as the new bride to one of the St. James Society's most magnetic—and ruthless—leaders. But Lord Bessett's bold challenge to prove herself worthy of joining his secret all-male society is impossible to resist. So she daringly agrees to travel with the enigmatic nobleman on a dangerous mission to save one of their own—a little girl with a frightening gift.
Soon intrigue swirls about them, drawing them ever closer. And AnaÏs quickly realizes that the intimacy of sharing Lord Bessett's bedroom is proving a temptation impossible to resist. As for Bessett himself—well, he might be a soldier sworn to the Society, but he certainly isn't anyone's saint. . . .

My Rating:  4 out of 5

My Review:

The only reason this didn't get a 5 out of 5 is because it wasn't edited well.  There were very obvious errors that should have been caught and weren't.  And after the 10th error I found I stopped counting.

I didn't read the first in the series, but this book stood alone very nicely and I wasn't confused about any past references. However I did enjoy the story and the romance was very HOT.  Anais and Geoff had a very strong attraction to each other from the beginning and when they finally fall into each others arms it almost made the pages come on fire!

The mystery and action was also great.  And I enjoyed seeing a woman hold her own with weapons for once in a Historical Romance.

This book was definitely original and entertaining.
