He ruined her reputation?now he's the only one who can save it.
For exactly one season, Lady Charlotte Wentworth played the biddable female the ton expected?and all it got her was society's mockery and derision. Now she's determined to be in charge of her own future. So when an unwanted suitor tries to manipulate her into an engagement, she has a plan. He can't claim to be her fiancé if she's engaged to someone else. Even if it means asking for help from the last man she would ever marry.
Ethan, Lord Amesbury, made a lot of mistakes, but the one he regrets the most is ruining Lady Charlotte's reputation. He's older and wiser now, but his attraction to Lottie never wavered. Going along with her charade is the least he can do to clean the slate and perhaps earn her forgiveness. And, if he's lucky, her love.
An overturned carriage accident lands Lottie in an inn waiting for help for her and her staff’s injuries. And there he is. She hasn’t seen him in years. Not since he branded her the Paper Doll Princess to the ton. Ethan ruined her with a few careless words. He never gave thought to her reputation until he realized how truly he’d ruined it. She was hurt and betrayed and now, seeing him in the dining room of the inn, she’s still just as mad.
But now she’s found her voice. And she won’t let him get away with humiliating her again.
He apologizes. Sincerely and perfectly. (Authors: THIS is an apology!)
Ethan was never meant to be a peer, but as soon as he got the title, he wound up drinking and partying non-stop. A drunken carriage accident, a hurt friend, and Ethan as the driver shaped him up. He dedicated his life to his lands and tenants. He’s in London to find a brewer for his new brewery and that’s when he runs into Lottie. The girl who he ruined without ever touching. He is intrigued by her newfound voice and he finds her incredible.
As she reenters society, from her couple of years in hiding, she realizes that she’s going to have a hard road ahead of her, made worse by people pretending to care about her. She and Ethan are invited to a dinner, in the hopes that drama will ensue. However she realizes immediately what’s going on and they are able to nip that in the bud. The problem is then, that Lottie begins to like Ethan. These two will have to navigate the ton together, and while the title is Any Rogue Will Do, really it’s Only Ethan Will Do 😉
I really enjoyed the characters, the plot and the writing. I look forward to more from this author!
