Captain Maximus Harcourt, the unconventional tenth Duke of Alderidge, can deal with tropical storms, raging seas, and the fiercest of pirates. But he's returned home from his latest voyage to find a naked earl - quite inconveniently deceased - tied to his missing sister's bed. And he has only one place to turn. Now he's at the mercy of the captivating Miss Ivory Moore of Chegarre & Associates, known throughout London for smoothing over the most dire of scandals.
Miss Moore treats the crisis as though it were no more serious than a cup of spilt tea on an expensive rug. As though this sort of thing happened on the job every day. Max has never in all his life met a woman with such nerve. Her dark eyes are too wide, her mouth is too full, her cheekbones too sharp. Yet together, she's somehow...flawless. It's just like his love for her, imperfect, unexpected - yet absolutely true.
The heroine in this one was awesome. She was so different and could take care of herself, and she was not ton, aye maybe that was why it was so fun.
Ivory helps people with those kind of things that people do not want other people to know about *wink wink* She knows her way around the underworld in London, and she knows the Ton. Even if they pretend they do not even know about her.
Max loves the sea, but Max. Seriously, you left your sister at home with her aunt. And when it came to the aunt, I would be upset with him still. And get it into your thick skull, stay home! Still, I liked him!
So he needs her help because omg what a scandal! Yes really, what a scandal! The only thing I found hard to believe is where she was found, a certain aspect of it...you will see and might get what I mean.
This is not a ball room book, this is the back streets and gaming halls. Oh oh, I liked that friend of hers...he should get a book btw.
It was fun and I would read more.
