Enjoyable read. As the Wiggins sisters go to London to find husband, Marguerite is set on marrying the Duke of Wallingford. As a serial rapist is taking is victims from the Ton, a bodyguard is hired and Marguerite has problems with her plans to marry the Duke. This is a romantic suspense. Keeps you guessing until the end.

This was a fun read. It was like some sort of Historical romance reality show. We got to see the best in some people and the worst in others to make for a most entertaining composition.

I did not know that this book was the second book in a trilogy. All the information that I needed for the story was right there. It was complete.

Her style is a bit unusual for me. Scene breaks were a bit jarring sometimes. Give me a line or just 3 *** to break the scenes up, it would have been great, thank you. Bu
