From the back of the book:
Lady Nicole Daughtry has vowed never to be vulnerable to any man. Despite the man suitors vying for the dazzling beauty’s hand she has seen the damage love can inflict and wants no part of it. Until she meets Lucas Paine, Marquess of Basingstoke, whose aura of mystery and danger draws her like no other…
Lucas is a man with a mission – and a powerful thirst for revenge. The last thing he can afford is the distraction of a pretty face. But a scandalous affair with Nicole could be just the cover he needs to outwit his enemies. With treachery everywhere, and Nicole’s very life is his hands, Lucas will face his greatest challenge yet – to keep the lady safe from harm…and his heart safe from her.
A Kasey Michaels historical (or contemporary) is never a disappointment to me. I love the way her characters interact with each other. Her heroes are always ready for love and don’t shy away from it when the right woman comes around. Lucas is just this way. He falls for Nicole from the very beginning and loves every minute of it. Nicole is a different story. After watching her mother flit from man to man and her sister’s heart break when the man she loves dies at war, Nicole is determined to never marry. I loved this couple and couldn’t wait for Nicole to change her opinions of love and marriage. It is a perfect love story.
the book girl gives HOW TO TAME A LADY a 5/5!
