When his cousin Lady Clarissa asks the dedicated rake Warren Corry, Marquess of Knightford, and member of the St. George's Club, to watch out for her friend Miss Delia Trevor during her London season, neither realize that Corey will be inextricably intwined into Delia's life, despite his best intentions. But then neither did Corey know that Delia dressed as a man and gambled the night away in various notorious hells. When Warren recognized the woman beyond the gambling youth facade, to say his is somewhat startled downplays his reaction. Delia is searching for the man who'd been instrumental in her brother's death--that is until Corry sussed her out. What's a rake to do?
Two people, each with a problem and each with a different way of handling their world are inevitably drawn to each other, both fascinated and annoyed by each other. Will love find a way through the secrets they hold?
Intertwined with others in series, this is a fitting Sinful Sinners addition.
I loved the premise. I have previously stated how much I enjoy the female leading role emulating a youth in order to go about her business without being brought down in disgrace. Despite espousing one of my favourite plot lines this didn't quite capture me as I wanted it to but it's still a jolly good read.
