Notorious Pleasures by Elizabeth Hoyt

Goodreads Description:

Their lives were perfect . . . 
Lady Hero Batten, the beautiful sister of the Duke of Wakefield, has everything a woman could want, including the perfect fianc√©. True, the Marquis of Mandeville is a trifle dull and has no sense of humor, but that doesn’t bother Hero. Until she meets his notorious brother . . . 

Until they met each other.. 
Griffin Remmington, Lord Reading, is far from perfect – and he likes it that way. How he spends his days is a mystery, but all of London knows he engages in the worst sorts of drunken revelry at night. Hero takes an instant dislike to him, and Griffin thinks that Hero, with her charities and faultless manners, is much too impeccable for society, let alone his brother. Yet their near-constant battle of wits soon sparks desire – desire that causes their carefully constructed worlds to come tumbling down. As Hero’s wedding nears, and Griffin’s enemies lay plans to end their dreams forever, can two imperfect people find perfect true love?…

My Rating:

My Review:

FANTASTIC BOOK!  Ok now that I have that out of my system let me explain why I think that!  This is the second in the Maiden Lane Series, and I thought it would primarily be about Silence it wasn't.  Silence and her story were continued and there were hints to her story but it was drawn out and the facts shown in this story just made me want to read her story more!  I can't wait to find out what will happen with her.  In this story, Lady Hero Batten is engaged to Mandeville.  It isn't a love match but one of duty.  She meets Lord Reading, her fiancees brother and they have a clashing of personality that is combustible.  It turns to lust and then love.  It takes them a while and through a bunch of trials but they find it in the end.  Lady Hero is a strong brave woman but it takes her a while to realize how strong. Great story!
