Rayne Kenyon, Earl of Haviland, has lived a dangerous and intriguing life as a spy. Now he is on a journey about to take him down a road more terrifying than fighting deception--marriage.
Madeline Ellis has lost her employer and has no letter of introduction to find another job. When a vulgar Lord decides he will proposition her, she does the only possible thing--kisses a total stranger.
Madeline knows she is plain compared to the beauties of the ton, but for some reason, Rayne wants her for his wife. When he explains his somewhat cold and analytical plans for marriage, she sets out to seduce her husband, never expecting to fall in love. Rayne had his heart broken once years ago and now goes out of his way to squash any emotions he has for his wife. When his mistrust paints Madeline as a woman with a secret liaison, he sets out to find out once and for all how unfaithful she is, only to find something much more spectacular.
To Tame a Dangerous Lord pits Madeline, a supposedly plain woman, against Rayne, a man whose masculine beauty surpasses most others. I love how strong, independent, and stubborn she is, something her character needs in order to fight for her marriage. The emotional rollercoaster is very intense; love, heartbreak, bittersweet agony, anger, and a passion that explodes within the pages. Even though this is part of a series, you do not need to read the previous books to understand Rayne and Madeline’s story. Once again Ms. Jordan has hit upon a winning novel sure to keep her audience enthralled and entertained for years to come!
