Description

By beloved USA Today bestselling author Joanna Shupe, the fourth installment in the Fifth Avenue Rebels series about a secret affair between a free-spirited heiress and an uptight duke which turns more passionate than either could have imagined. 

A rebellious heiress.

A duke in dire straits.

An anonymous midnight tryst.

To escape the shackles of marriage, Nellie Young purposely ruined her reputation a long time ago. Now she dedicates herself to hedonistic pleasures only, like kissing a handsome stranger in the ocean under the moonlight...

To save his estate, the proper Duke of Lockwood must marry the perfect bride—wealthy, with an unblemished reputation. While in New York he’s the perfect gentleman, and no one knows he’s suppressing his darkest desires. The last thing he needs is another scandal.

Except Nellie sees through Lockwood’s charade, straight to the real man underneath. This uptight duke is far more than he lets on, and she can’t resist him. Their secret affair turns scorching, far more than either expected. And when his beautiful rebel finds an unconventional cause, Lockwood has to decide if he’s willing to sacrifice everything to keep her.

    4-4.5 Stars! Such a good book! This is the 4th book in the ‘The Fifth Avenue Rebels’ series and can be read as a standalone. I read the book before this one and loved that book too. I’m so happy Nellie gets an HEA ending too! I loved her character, she is such a strong woman. I loved the main male character Andrew/Duke of Lockwood too, he was sweet (and spicy - in the ‘sexy times’ scenes!). The ‘sexy time’ scenes were so hot, I had to turn on my bedside fan! (Not kidding, I really did!) They were both easy to love main characters and I was rooting for them and wanting to slap them at times too. I loved how the book also taught me a bit about how it was for women back in the late 1800’s with the ‘Comstock laws’ and women being jailed because of contraception and how husbands were allowed to beat their wives! That was insane and it really wasn’t that long ago. I wish the epilogue would’ve been a bit longer, with more information on Nellie and Andrew years and years on. Still, I loved this book start to finish. I’d definitely recommend it! *I received this at no charge & I voluntarily left this review.*
