Lord Langley Is Back in Town
A diplomat and a spy, the dashing Lord Langley is happy to be home after years spent abroad, though less so to discover the ladies he so callously loved and left have been anxiously awaiting his return. Hoping to put his checkered past - and his persistent ex
I was wrong.
It was worse.
An hero that although on his forty e two years old, "sounds" like he's twenty. His behaviour could be described as juvenile and i never saw anything that would correspond to the title of master spy. An heroine, Minerva, that has an unlikely _ and far-fetched _ secret. It just didn't work. I wasn't interessed in ...more
First, the hero is 42, hiding out as a servant, and assumed dead. Then,if he were alive, he'd be tried for treason. Four of his former mistresses descend on the house where he is hiding, and insists that the widow who lives there produce our hero. But she knows nothing until he climbs into her bedroom window.

Minerva is one of the three, and the last one of the Standon widows who have been given an ultimatum by Lord Langley's daughter Felicity to `get themselves hitched' or be financially cut off by her husband, the Duke. Well, the other two ...more
The other two Standon widows have married and Minerva is enjoying the peace and quite now that she has the house t ...more
Overall, I thought it was a bit unlikely. I mean, four of Langley's former mistresses storming Minerva's house and taking up residence there because they beli ...more
I loved how anti-climatic the revelation of her secret was for everyone but her. Sounds weird, I know, but I l ...more
From Goodreads: Lord Langley and Minerva, Lady Standon, began their faux engagement with three simple rules set down by the baron's all-too-proper (and utterly unlikely) bride-to-be.
1. No more kissing. The intoxicating kiss Langley stole from her lips still has Minerva aflutter.
2. She will not share his bed. (For if his kiss is that tempting, Minerva doesn't dare imagine what a night in Langley's embrace will do to her already addled senses.)
3. No scandal ...more
