Overview

Confessions of a Dangerous Lord by Elisa Braden

Never judge a man by his cover…
Society knows the affable Earl of Dunston for his flashy waistcoats and rapier wit. Lady Maureen Huxley knows him as Henry Thorpe, her best friend—an irresistibly kissable, strictly platonic friend. Which means her dreams of marriage, motherhood, part-time cookery, and full-time domestic bliss must be fulfilled elsewhere. But after three seasons and a parade of fickle suitors, Maureen’s hopes are fading. Worse, she suspects Henry is to blame.

Never trust a man with too many secrets…
Years spent hunting his father’s murderer through London’s dark underworld have honed Henry Thorpe into a deadly blade with one purpose—catching a killer of fathomless evil. Nothing mattered more until Maureen Huxley came along. To keep her safe, he must keep her at arm’s length. Yet he can’t resist drawing her close, making her laugh, dreaming of doing wicked things to her lush body. Very well, perhaps he also dissuaded some of her suitors. But what’s a little deception between friends?

Never provoke a man as dangerous as this one…
With his enemy growing bolder and Maureen contemplating marriage to another man, Henry is caught in the crossfire between his mission and his heart. Any move could exact a devastating cost. But losing the woman he loves is one price he refuses to pay.

About the Author

Reading romance novels came easily to Elisa Braden. She’s been doing it since she was twelve. Writing them? That took a little longer. After graduating with degrees in creative writing and history, Elisa spent entirely too many years in “real” jobs writing T-shirt copy ... and other people’s resumes ... and articles about giftware displays. But that was before she woke up and started dreaming about the very unreal job of being a romance novelist. Frankly, she figures better late than never. Elisa lives in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest, where you're constitutionally required to like the colors green and gray. Good thing she does. Other items on the "like" list include cute dogs, strong coffee, and epic movies. Of course, her favorite thing of all is hearing from readers who love her characters as much as she does.

Although I haven't read books from the series in order, they read well as stand alone books. Loved this one the best of the ones I've read. Now I need to go back and get the ones I missed. Extremely well developed characters with a plot line that keeps you turning pages. I'm hooked on this author!

Very complex story. The danger is real but there's lot of humor too. A nice balance.

As usual, Elisa Braden does it again- romance laced with sensuality, action intertwined with danger. But read the series in order..

Really enjoyed all of the series. The Hulexy women and the Duke's family and friends all have a villain to chase but does not overtake the story. Love always wins.

I have now read all of her books and enjoyed them all. I had figured out who "the bad guy" was but enjoyed the twist and turns through out this book.

If you’ve not read Ms. Braden before, gift yourself an early Christmas present. This young lady is an outstanding plot developer, scene setter, and narrator. Her dialogue is witty, sharp, and intelligent, and the different voice of each character rings true. Thankfully, Ms. Braden is light on the angst, but provides enough turmoil for her characters to keep the story gripping. “Confessions of a Dangerous Lord” is the latest offering in the Rescued from Ruin series. The great thing about this series is that they are stand alone, but characters from previous books in the series pop up in the best places. The Dowager Marchioness of Wallingham is an ongoing character who, usually in discussion with her boon companion Humphrey (who happens to be a bloodhound), delivers pithy, relevant, and starchy observations of the other characters. Her sage advice and wisdom alone are worth the price of the book. I cannot recommend this book, this author, and this series more highly. Absolutely flawless, and Ms. Braden continues to grow as a writer. In addition, there are very few (if any), errors in these books. Please give Ms. Braden and the Dowager a read – you will not regret it!
