I eagerly anticipated this story because out of all the rakes, I liked Lucan the best because of his "still waters" character. He was one of those heroes that you just can't wait to find out about. Once I found out about him, I liked him even more and I wanted him to be paired with a woman worthy of his character.

And trust me, Frances was not it. I truly disliked her attitude and self-righteous demeanor. What a judgmental bitch! I get the reasons for her original impression of Lucan, but once he had started showing her who he really is, she just persisted in casting him as a bad guy. What a waste!

Let me tell you. This hero deserved someone much better than what he got.

If you've read this series from the start, go ahead and read this story too. If you're new to this author, skip this one and read book two in this series.

Vivienne Lorret has completely blown me away with this series so far, so the Maddening of Lord Montwood had A LOT to live up too…
Everything in Frances life was taken away in one go! No job, no home and her Father (Hugh Thorne) was taken off to debtor’s prison. Add to that the betrayal of the men in her life; it is understandable that she is unwilling to trust Lucan Montwood! Despite the fact that she has known him since childhood, she doesn’t really know him at all! After all, who makes a 10,000 pound bet with their friends to stay single…but even knowing that and even when lies and scheming of another person, taints her opinion of Lucan…she still begins to care for him.
Lord Lucan Montwood has also lost everything that he cared about. His mother has been murdered and the murderer (Lucas Father) seems to have gotten away with it, by shifting the blame on to Hugh Thorne (Family Steward). Lucan makes it his mission to protect Hugh Thorne, with the aid of Viscount Whitelock. But nothing is as truly as it seems! And if that isn’t enough, He falls in love with Thorne’s daughter Frances, who only sees him as a rake.
But nothing is truly as it seems, and you are left wondering, who is good and who is bad and will love win in the end…
Wow! What a twist! What an ending! I can honestly say that this book is full of surprises, from the beginning to the end and it was such a joy to read and a wonderful end to such an amazing series.
Where it comes to the basics, Vivienne Lorret always knocks it out of the park. It was such a smooth and well developed read, which kept me gripped to the end.
I give The maddening of Lord Montwood and well deserved 10 out of 10!

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Frances Thorne can handle anything, except losing her position, her home, and her father to debtor's prison all in one day. When a generous offer of assistance falls into her lap, she's grateful for a second chance, even if it seems too good to be true. The last thing she needs is for the charming, infuriating, maddening, Lord Lucan Montwood to stand in her way. The end of the bachelors' wager is near, and Lucan Montwood can taste victory, just so long as he can stay away from the one woman who sees through him. When he learns that Frances has been caught in an insidious trap, Lucan can't deny that he will do anything to help. Convincing her to trust him is the hard part, resisting her is next to impossible.… (more)
