Meet the Blackthorn Brothers—three unrepentant scoundrels infamous for being mad, bad and perilous to love.
Handsome as the devil and twice as tempting, Robin "Puck" Blackthorn lives for the pleasures of the moment. His only rule—never dally with an innocent woman. But when an encounter at a masquerade ball leaves him coveting the one woman who refuses to succumb to his charms, Puck realizes that some rules were made to be broken….
Scandalized to discover that the masked man with whom she'd shared a dance—and a forbidden embrace—is in fact the ton's most celebrated rake, Regina Hackett vows to keep her distance. Yet when her cousin vanishes, it is to Puck that Regina must turn. And as they embark on a dangerous journey through London's darkest alleys, Regina will discover that beneath Puck's roguish facade lies a man who will stop at nothing to protect her—or to convince her to take a chance on an unrepentant sinner.
It had been a while since I read the first in this series but within a few chapters I was able to recall all in info I could from the first book and was excited with how this book was starting out. Puck lived it up in France and when he returned to London all he wanted was some fun. He blacked mailed Spies for the crown to get introductions and invitations to balls, the first being a masquerade. Well if he was looking for something to living up his days he found it at that ball! Regina was begged by her cousin to attend a masquerade and against her better judgement she agreed. After an intriguing experience with a masked rogue, Regina lives to regret her agreement. Her cousin is kidnapped and her rogue is the only one who can help her. Puck just couldn't say no to Regina and agreed to help her find her cousin. The mystery and romance that ensues is wonderful. The mystery takes a few unexpected turns and the romance is forbidden and so of course fun to read about! I loved seeing Black Jack and getting some hints about him and I can not wait to read his story! I also got hooked by the few teasing hints about their father and a meeting he wants to have with the boys. I can only speculate as to what will happen with that! I will definitely be grabbing up the next in the series asap!
