When the Duke was Wicked (Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James #1) by Lorraine Heath
Genre: Adult (Historical/Regency Romance)
Date Published: February 25, 2014
Publisher: Avon HarperCollins

They are England’s most eligible bachelors, with the most scandalous reputations. But for the right woman, even an unrepentant rogue may mend his ways…

Lady Grace Mabry’s ample inheritance has made it impossible for her to tell whether a suitor is in love with her—or enamored of her riches. Who better to distinguish beau from blackguard than her notorious childhood friend, the Duke of Lovingdon?

After losing his beloved wife Juliette, Lovingdon has spent ten years on pleasure. He can help Grace find a proper match, being familiar with ploys of scoundrels, and how to distinguish honest emotions from false. But lessons lead to torrid passion and Grace becomes ensnared in another man’s nefarious marriage plot.

When the Duke was Wicked is the first book in the Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James series by Lorraine Heath. After reading the second and third books in this series a while back, I figured It was time I finally read the first book. I absolutely loved how they got to know one another. Sure, Grace had a crush on Lovingdon as a little girl, but now she just wants his help in finding a love match of her own. Lovingdon is determined to never love again, but when he sees her dancing with other men or hears her talking about them, he gets jealous. It's funny too, because he insists on staying in denial about any growing feelings he may or may not have. Grace has a case of denial as well. These two are pretty adorable. I enjoyed their love story quite a bit, and I'm glad I've finally caught up with the series. I'm ready for more. An Affair with a Notorious Heiress is scheduled to release on May 30th. Bring it on!

Check out my review of the previous book in this trilogy

LORRAINE HEATH always dreamed of being a writer. After graduating from the University of Texas, she wrote training manuals and computer code, but something was always missing.

After reading a romance novel, she not only became hooked on the genre, but quickly realized what her writing lacked: rebels, scoundrels, and rogues. She’s been writing about them ever since. Her work has been recognized with numerous industry awards, including RWA’s RITA® and a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award. Her novels have appeared on the USA Today and New York Times best-seller lists.
