I’ve been a fan of Alexandra Hawkins for a few years now, discovering her Carlyle family series when she was writing under the name of Barbara Pierce. I never did get to her Bedegrayne books before she began her Lords of Vice series, and those have kept me busy for a while. Now that St. Martin’s has reissued the Bedegraynes in e-format, I’m not missing the opportunity to read about the family who started it all for this very talented author.

Fifteen years ago, a strange twist of fate made Rayne Wyman both the Viscount Tipton and a Notorious outcast.He vows revenge and has not tempted to reenter the polite world. Then a young lovely Devona Bedegrayne summons the temerity to knock on his door and demand his help.
