Harriet Wheatley is the mastermind behind the Ladies of Virtue’s quest to rehabilitate the gentlemen of the ton. So when it comes to selecting her own target, she knows who to choose: Oliver Weeks, Marquess of Davenport--the most extravagant wastrel in all of London.

Known for his opulent lifestyle, Oliver isn't surprised by Harriet’s confrontation. It’s obvious Harriet longs for any way to take him down a notch. She says she’ll help him find a bride, but he knows it’s only because it gives her the excuse to chastise his indulgent ways.

Oliver has good reason for his flagrant overspending, but Harriet will hear nothing of it. So he has no choice but to teach the lady a lesson, even if it means risking his heart to the hard-headed and fiery woman.

Each book in the Lords of Vice series is STANDALONE:
* The Scoundrel and the Lady
* The Marquess and the Maiden
* The Earl and the Reluctant Lady

This was a lovely historical romance. The kind that sucks you in and makes you care deeply for the characters. A few things irritated me but I realize they're more a function of the age I'm born in, rather than true flaws.

Usually the Big Misunderstanding trope annoys me but this time I found it... ...more

I am occasionally iffy about Regency romances. Even though I had my ups and downs with this couple, I loved Heather and Oliver being together by the end of this story

Reviewed on my blog, Becky on Books, on 9/12/18.

Oliver and Harriet's story was absolutely wonderful. From their (very painful!) first non-engagement through all of Oliver's (clueless) denied engagement through their actual relationship--even when I wanted to throttle him for his obtuseness or cry... ...more

Another fantastic read by Ms. DeHart. I love how some of the characters overlap in her series. It was great seeing The Brotherhood’s Lord/Lady Somersby again.
