To outsiders it may look like Georgiana, the Duchess of Hardcastle has everything anyone could want but she wants more, a passionate affair. Rhys, the broker deals in secrets and wants to see his sisters lives improved but he wants more than Georgiana to help his sisters. Will she agree? Plenty of drama, the story is entertaining and I loved the chemistry a steamy and entertaining historical read. I really liked it.

Duchess by Day, Mistress by Night by Stacy Reid is the First book in the New Series called, "Rebellious Desires". This is the story of Georgiana Rutherford, the Duchess of Hardcastle and Mr. Rhys Tremayne 'Broker'. Georgiana married Hardcastle when she was just 16 years old and he was 42. They had a son named Nicholas but then Hardcastle died about 5 years ago leaving Georgiana a widow. But Georgiana was popular with the town but lacked passion in her life. Now Georgiana young son Nurse Maid, Jane Walker has disappeared and since the Bow Street Runners hasn't found anything out nor is her brother Simon taking it seriously, Georgiana thinks to see if the 'Broker' can help. Rhys is called the Broker and works hard for him and his family to get ahead since they didn't have the 'Towns' life as a genteel family. Their life style also effected his sister Lydia by having her come down with a fever that left her deaf. Rhys greatest wish is for his sister's to be settled within the town to good husbands. But that hasn't been a possibility so far but now that the Duchess is asking for his help maybe he can strike a bargain to have Georgiana bring his sister out to the Town. But Rhys doesn't expect Georgiana to be so young and attractive, nor does Georgiana except to be so attracted to Rhys. I must say that I am a big Fan of Ms. Reid's writing and I try to grab her books up as soon as I see one. This newest story from Ms. Reid did not disappoint at all! Loved it!!

Giorgiana Rutherford, Duchess of Hardcastle, is desperately seeking help in locating her son’s missing nursemaid. She will do anything to find answers to her questions. When she meets Rhys Tremayne and enters into an agreement for his services, she is all too aware that the cost may be a high one. But there is a small, lonely part of her that longs to pay whatever that price may be. Rhys, better known as The Broker in the underground world he moves in, is immediately taken with the beautiful woman he spies at a ball. When he discovers she is the person seeking his services he is all too willing to assist her. However, once he uncovers the information she desires he surprises her when he tells her the cost. This couple, two individuals who long for more but are unaware how or even if they will ever find it, have instant chemistry. Their story flowed organically, each scenario being the only thing that could possibly happen. I was impressed with Rhys’ honor and strength when it came to those he loved. While I did get a bit aggravated at Giorgiana’s continued pushing away due to her social status, she was an independent woman who had found her place at a time when women were nothing more than a bargaining chip. A lifetime of being groomed for her role seemed to be a part of her very DNA. I really enjoyed this book and especially Rhys and his dark ways. It is a fast paced read with awesome secondary characters that I hope will receive their own stories. Ms. Reid has a way of spinning her tales that pull you in and keep you engaged. This is an honest review of an advanced copy provided by NetGalley and Entangled Publishing. Dual POV Safe No apparent triggers

I absolutely LOVED this story and couldn't put it down! Georgiana was not your typical member of the ton and I loved her all the more for it. After living such a rigid life for many years, she was ready to break out of her shell live the life that she wanted. I really liked Rhys too. He is your typical bad boy on the outside, but when we get to know him we see that he has a heart of gold! Run out and buy this NOW!! You won't be disappointed. I can't wait to read the next book in the series!

Duchess by Day, Mistress by Night by Stacy Reid Rebellious Desires #1 Rebellious indeed – I would be, too, if I were Georgiana Elizabeth Rutherford, Dower Duchess of Hardcastle! I mean, being groomed from childhood to be married to a person with position and pedigree to further family prestige whether or not love is involved and then knowing so early who your ancient husband will be and studying hard to be a good duchess could not have been easy. That said - Georgiana was impeccable in person with purpose aplenty. Widowed young with a son who will one day be Duke she is focused on her duty as mother and more BUT she is missing something…and…that something just may be a lover – or so say her family and friends. When a woman working in Georgiana’s employ goes missing she is advised to bring in The Broker, Rhys Tremayne, to find the woman. Little does she realize that meeting this man will change her life forever. Rhys deals in secrets, brokers deals, barters one secret for another and does most of this to help elevate his mother and three sisters from a past that none of them deserved. His service to Georgiana might provide a toehold toward his goals for his family’s elevation in status, or perhaps not, whatever happens in the future his life will be changed forever, too. I really liked Rhys and his love of family. He is an honorable man with tentacles throughout all levels of society. He is a mongrel and considered common but he is also oh so caring, he is able to mingle with the ton or hold his own with louts, he is a man women eye, he is a man that men admire and also sometimes fear. He is a man well worth knowing and Georgiana ends up knowing him very well indeed. When another situation arises that requires The Broker’s assistance Georgiana finds herself feeling indebted but also afire with desires she decides to quench and thus ensues a torrid time for the two of them. Yes, she has to deal with the matter of station and he does, too, but ultimately can they overcome the levels in society they are positioned in to become more than just passing souls enjoying an affair for a time…or not… This is my first book by this author and I am intrigued. I am eager to find out who will star next in this series. Will it by Rhys’s sister Lydia? Will it be Rhys’s friend Riordan O’Malley? Will it be Simon – the brother of Georgiana? Just who will it be? I am eager to find out – that is for sure! Thank you to NetGalley and Entangled Publishing LLC for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4.5 Stars

What does a woman who has it all need? A passionate man who can warm her heart. Such is Georgiana Rutherford, the Duchess of Hardcastle, who is held in high esteem by the ton and is lacking nothing monetarily. In walks Rhys Tremayne (don't you just love that name?), a most handsome man who does not have a pedigree, but has worked hard to build his wealth and station. Determined to take care of his sisters and have them become accepted in society, he finds Georgiana to be the perfect solution to his dilemma. She could sponsor them and help them make a good match with her connections. The explosion of feelings between the two cannot be denied, but she resists as hard as she can. The author brings the characters to life with vivid descriptions and great dialogue. The story is intriguing and emotional at times but very exciting making me turn the pages to see what will happen next. This is a wonderful journey from beginning to end and you will be glad to took the time to read. I know I will be reading every book by this author!
