(Lords of Vice #4)

Publisher: Entangled: Scandalous
My Rating: 3 stars
As a Lady of Virtue, Matilda Brooks swears to reform the most despicable man of her acquaintance, her brother-in-law, Sullivan Chase, Viscount Glenbrook. Well he may not be the most despicable, but he is certainly arrogant, flirtatious, and entirely too charming. To make matters worse, he has the irritating tendency to poke fun of her and rile her emotions as no other man does. However, when she confronts him, he laughs off her concern about his slothful ways.
But when a carriage accident forces Sullivan to play knight to Tilly’s damsel, his unexpected act of chivalry ends up costing them both their freedom. Her compromised reputation and his honorable declaration forces them into a marriage neither of them wants. Which is most inconvenient, given that she has sworn to despise him forever.
This is part of a series and while there may be some minor spoilers to other books each book csn be read as standalone.
What I loved: That Tilly wasn’t perfect in her appearance, freckles, tall, gaped teeth but Sullivan secretly lusted after her for years. I love an arranged/forced marriage and this one didn’t disappoint. The sexual chemistry was off the chart hot.
What I didn’t like: Once again we have a couple who refuse to sit down and have an honest conversation. So much hardship could have been avoided if they just spoke to one another. The mystery of Sullivan’s brother’s death ended too abruptly for my liking.
overall the pluses make up for the minuses so I would recommend this book to anyone who loves heat, intrigue and a decent plot.
