“Hugo Marshall earned the nickname “the Wolf of Clermont” for his ruthless ambition–a characteristic that has served him well, elevating the coal miner’s son to the right hand man of a duke. When he’s ordered to get rid of a pestering governess by fair means or foul, it’s just another day at work.
But after everything Miss Serena Barton has been through at the hands of his employer, she is determined to make him pay. She won’t let anyone stop her–not even the man that all of London fears. They might call Hugo Marshall the Wolf of Clermont, but even wolves can be brought to heel…”
I’m a huge fan of Courtney Milan’s novels. I love Regency Romances and hers are exceptional. They are smart and funny. I can even handle the sex because the descriptions aren’t cringe-inducing. While I was reading this I noticed that I was smiling, which is about the best recommendation I think I can give a book.
This novella is a prequel to her Brothers Sinister series. You don’t have to read this series in order. Each book stands on its own. Characters from other books may show up as secondary characters in the next book but you don’t need to have read the previous one to understand what is going on.
This story is currently free for Kindle (on the day this review is published) if you want to try out her writing. Fair warning though you might get hooked and need to read the rest of the series.
