This is the second book of The Scoundrel of St. James series.
1. In Bed with the Devil
2. Between the Devil and Desire
3. Surrender to the Devil
This series is about Faegan’s group of thieves who grew up to be better citizens. Luke in In Bed with the Devil happened to be the long lost heir to an earldom.
In the second book, Between the Devil and Desire, Jack Dodger met the widowed Duchess when he was charged with being a guardian to the young Duke. If you’re familiar with Dicken’s book, or have watched OLIVER! the movie, then the names of these gang will sound familiar to you. I half expected someone to say, “Please, sir, may I have some more?”
I enjoyed the story. I like the way it progresses, but sometimes, I just get very jaded how someone almost always is related to some nobility or the other. I recommend this book. It’s a fun fast read. This is not my most favorite of Lorraine Heath’s series, because that would be Rogues and Roses and Daughter’s of Fortune. Have you read any Lorraine Heath? Which one is your favorite?
