Another wonderful read from Cara Elliott! The second book in "The Hellions of High Street" series gives a strong heroine in Anna Slone. The hero Devlin Greville, Marquess of Davenport is known in Society as the Devil.
Thanks to her sister's marriage, Anna and her family are no longer poor as church mice and have been invited to attend a house party given in Scotland by one of her mother's old school friends. Anna agrees to attend so she can write in solitude. Yes, Anna is the writer of the ton's favorite sensational novels, Sir Sharpe Quill and she has writers block with a deadline looming. Devlin has blown through his family fortune and is working at rebuilding it (or so he has let the ton believe). He is attending the house party at the request (and payment) of the Home Office to ensure a German relative of the king remains alive.
I loved Anna discovering that Devlin isn't what he wants Society to believe he is. And, how Devlin slowly let Anna in.
In the first book, Scandalously Yours, we see more of the older sisters, Olivia and Anna because Caro is not out in Society yet. There is a bond between Olivia and Anna from Scandalously yours that we don't see between Anna and Caro. It was missed.
I give this book five out of five stars.
I received this book as an ARC from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
