This amusing late Regency romance start of a new series is actually and offshoot of the "School for Heiresses"

In 1806 his mother screams at sixteen year old Oliver Sharper then soon after in a rage she rides off to the hunting lodge. Once there she shot and killed her cheating spouse and her self. In a scandalous instant Oliver became the new Marquess of Stoneville.

In 1806 his mother screams at sixteen year old Oliver Sharper then soon after in a rage she rides off to the hunting lodge. Once there she shot and killed her cheating spouse and her self. In a scandalous instant Oliver became the new Marquess of Stoneville.

By 1825, Oliver has lived since the murder-suicide the life of a rake. His four younger siblings are as out of control as he is. Disappointed but understanding, their Gran hoped time would heal their wounds, but has not. Hence she informs them at the sight of the pivotal tragedy they will marry within a year or she will cut off their funds.

Oliver plans to meet his Gran's order by marrying someone inappropriate. He goes to a London brothel where he meets American Maria Butterfield who is in England searching for her missing fiancé with a clue taking her to the house of ill repute. Oliver rescues her from a customer, but blackmails her into pretending she is his intended. As they fall in love, Maria must remain patient as her Hellions of Halstead Hall beloved seems confused by his feelings for her.

This amusing late Regency romance start of a new series is actually and offshoot of the "School for Heiresses". The story line is fast-paced and loaded with a strong cast especially the lead rake, his family and his beloved American. The fun once again is in the humorous gender war as Maria rips the haughty wastrel's skin baring his tormented soul filled with guilt and remorse for setting off his mom almost two decades ago. The Truth About Lord Stoneville is that this is a super historical.

*****

Wonderful book. I read all 5 of the books -- series known as The Hellions of Halstead Hall -- Lord Stoneville was the first book. The other 4 books are about his siblings - 2 brothers & 2 sisters. This is definitely a romance novel.

    Classic Jeffries

    I gave this three stars mainly because I liked the characters. The story wasn't overly exciting but it was a fun, easy book.

    fast reading

    I enjoyed this book. The story reads fast and I wasnted to keep reading to see what was going to happen. Toom much sex. Everyman makes love the same way, if you have read one love scene by this authour ou have read them all. The women all get the same reaction from being made love to. I am tired of all the sex in these books so just skip over those pages, other than that her books are good. I think the sex scenes are what she would like to happen to her
