Horatia Sheridan has been hopelessly in love with Lucien, her brother's best friend, ever since he rescued her from the broken remains of her parents' wrecked carriage. His reputation as London's most notorious rakehell doesn't frighten her, for under his veneer of cool authority she has glimpsed a man whose wicked desires inspire her own.
Lucien, Marquess of Rochester, has deliberately nurtured a reputation for debauchery that makes every matchmaking mother of the ton quake with fear. However, the loyalty he owes Horatia's brother is put to the test when an old enemy of the League threatens Horatia's life.
With Christmas drawing near, he sweeps her away to his country estate, where he can't resist granting her one wish - to share his bed and his heart.

Did not read the print version.
I liked the attitude and relationship of Lucien's mothers when she met with her younger sons about aiding Lucien and Horatia's situation. Also Audrey is a pistol. She will get what she wants even if she has to manufacture it.
I must say, I loved the first book "Wicked Designs." This one fell a little short. However the League of Rogues is a series to be read/listened to and enjoy. The different personalities are wonderful and humorous and you can see the love and support among the Rogues. They have each other's back and that is wonderful. However, to me this second installment fell a little short. I must admit the book did slow down and die for a minute, but it ended strong. These stories allow you to see the inner person of the main characters. The love Horatia, Audrey and Cedric had for their dead parents, how that affected their lives and also how Lucien came to the rescue. Once you are allowed to see what makes them who they are, including Lucian, then they truly come alive to you.
I didn't like how the criminal got away and I do hate what happened to Cedric. I can't wait for the next installment.
