Overview

When a lady decides to become a spy, she must resist all temptation…especially love.

Audrey Sheridan is London’s sweetheart, a position that allows her access to the tonand all its secrets. As the enigmatic writer, Lady Society, she is wild, reckless, and speaks her mind. She matchmakes wicked rogues with their perfect wives. But there’s one thing she’s failed to find since her debut. A husband for herself. And there’s only one man she’s ever wanted. There’s just one problem…he doesn’t want her. What’s a lady to do to mend her broken heart? Run off to become a spy…

Jonathan St. Laurent is anything but a saint and certainly not husband material. He spent nearly his entire life as a servant to his half-brother the Duke of Essex. He’s trying to play the gentleman now, but it’s damned hard when he’s tempted by the ton’s darling spitfire Audrey. There’s something about her that makes him want to abandon the rules of polite society and show her just how wicked he can be…which is why it’s better to avoid the minx altogether. When Audrey’s plan to be a spy is discovered, Jonathan knows he must move heaven and earth to protect her while guarding his own secret…

Enjoyed reading the next book in the Wicked Rogue series. Fun to catch up previous characters from previous books.

This story will keep you on your toes and the edge of your seat! You got a taste of the story in The Earl of Pembroke. Now you get to know more about the hellfire club and who’s behind everything. From the deal they made about training to the wild ride of going after when she ran I was holding my breath. It was clear they were meant to be together, but both needed to reveal themselves fully. I absolutely loved what she did on the boat and what he did to protect her. The ending has me so excited for the next one! Audrey has deeper reasons for wanting to become a spy than most think. I loved her right away because she is not afraid to learn and act if needed to. She isn’t as invincible as she wants to be, but her heart is always in the right place. Jonathan never realized that his plans made her think the opposite of what he meant. I loved him and how he understood her more and more. He has the unique ability to see things from above and below stairs and become an amazing gentleman. Charles is a mystery more and more and he is becoming a favorite.

His Wicked Secret (League of Rogues #8) by Lauren Smith is an intriguing and interesting read. While, #8 in her fantastic series, "League of Rogue", it can be read as a stand alone. This is the long awaited story of Jonathan St. Laurent, half-brother of the Duke of Essex, and Audrey Sheridan, London’s sweetheart. Well crafted with well developed, charming, engaging, and secretive characters. Has an intriguing, and adventurous storyline. HIS WICKED SECRET has everything a Regency Romance reader could wish for in a well written story. It has romance, spies, adventure, intrigue, danger and a love of a lifetime with a HEA. Once again, Ms. Smith has created an outstanding, mesmerizing relationship between the hero and heroine. The secondary characters are quiet as entertaining. They definitely help carry the story to its climatic conclusion. Another must read by Lauren Smith. Regency Romance fans are sure to fall in love with Jonathan and Audrey's story. "I voluntarily received a complimentary copy, however, these are my honest opinions. I was in no way required nor compensated to write a review."

Jonathan St. Laurent was raised as a servant most of his life even though he was a legitimate son of the old duke and he acted as a servant to his half-brother the Duke of Essex. Jonathan has always loved Audrey Sheridan, London’s sweetheart, but he feel doesn’t feel good enough to marry so he’s always held her at arm’s length that is until now. Jonathan has been trying to play the gentleman, but it’s damned hard when he’s tempted by sexy spitfire especially with her eyes flashing passionately at him. In the beginning of the book Jonathan is recusing Audrey from the Hellfire Club where a trap’s has been set to catch the wild and reckless Audrey aka Lady Society. Audrey is tired of the hot & cold friendship she and Jonathan has, her hearts been broken one time too many so she’s decided to turn to spying instead of perusing a romance with the one man she loves Jonathan. Audrey ask Jonathan to give her some self-defense lessons, but Johnathan says under one condition he wants her to trust him and he soon realizes he’s ready to give into temptation and abandon the rules of polite society. I love these two they’re so much fun, I love their witty banter and interactions. A truly captivating story with Audrey is again leading Jonathan on a merry chase and the League of Rogues coming to their rescue. This is my honest opinions after I voluntarily read a copy of this book that was provided to me with no requirements for a review.
