Lady Thea Debenham is loyal to her brother Dare, miraculously returned to the family after having been missing and purposely addicted to drugs by an enemy during his year-long imprisonment. Fighting his addiction a new threat is being held over his head of being a `coward' at the battle of Waterloo. Thea would do anything to help clear him. Approached by a stranger (whom she finds compellingly attractive), he convinces her he can clear her brother of the ugly rumors. His price, her betrothal to him - for six weeks - and then she could jilt him. He sealed the deal with a mind-blowing kiss and only, after Thea asked his name did she discover he was a Cave - the "Vile" Viscount.
*** Wow, Ms. Beverley has come back with the perfect wrap-up to her previously published TO RESCUE A ROGUE, highlighting the rogue Dare's return from the dead and his struggle to overcome addiction. With LADY BEWARE, she not only wraps up Dare's addiction battle from that splendid story, but gives the reader another dynamic and sensual piece featuring Dare's sister Lady Thea and Dare's one time school-boy nemesis, Canem Cave (dog Cave)!Read more ›
Many of the rogues make a brief appearance but don't add anything to the story. I kept waiting for Nicholas to step into the story but it didn't happen.
I await the next book (Georgian period) with anticipation and hope Jo will be back on form.
However, I have to say I was shocked at how enthralled I became in this book. One critisism I will give is it did take a while to get going after the initial tryst between Darien and Thea. But with perserverance it built into an extremely tense and very sensual rollercoster ride. From chapter 27 onwards I couldn't put it down.
The story structure and characterisation was fantastic. The beginning of the novel created in me the feeling of contempt and disgust towards Darien but by the end I was positively in love with him myself.
Overall, the story, while not entirely predictable, to a regular reader of romantic suspense will be somewhat text book, but still good nonetheless. I also feel that certain sections could have been elaborated on more, in particular the end could have had a little bit more to it. It did feel that it was just quickly rounded off, a little more dialogue and description would have made the difference.
Many people communicate that this novel is nothing like the best that Jo Beverley's Rogues Series has to offer. If this is a poor example of her work then I am positively gaging to read the rest.
