Mary Jo Putney's riveting Lost Lords series unleashes a high stakes royal plot--which may prove easier for Damian Mackenzie to handle than his own unruly desire. . .

He's a bastard and a gambler and society's favorite reprobate. But to Lady Kiri Lawford he's a hero--braver than the smugglers he rescues her from, more honorable than any lord she's ever met, and far more attractive than any man has a right to be. How can she not fall in love. . .'

But Damian Mackenzie has secrets that leave no room in his life for courting high-born young ladies--especially not the sister of one of his oldest friends. Yet when Kiri's quick thinking reveals a deadly threat to England's crown, Damian learns that she is nowhere near as prim and respectable as he first assumed. . .and the lady is far more alluring than any man can resist. . .

A very enjoyable the book and the story line. I loved the characters and the way the story brought them together. I loved that Kiri was not the tipacal depicted English woman from that time period. She had spunk and wasnt afraid to show it Now to the next book in the series.

Loved it!!! There was never a dull moment, from the brilliant balance between the intriguing, yet improbable plotline and the blossoming romance. To the complex, witty and engaging characters. It was definitely one of the most enjoyable books I've read in a long time!! The plot was predictable towards the end but the guessing game made it just so wickedly captivating. There was also some historical credibility in the charcters involved in the fiction-based plot, too. I now want a sequel based on the same Kiri Lawford and Damien Mackenzie, the characters were just too intelligent to waste.
