Most women will give him anything he wants. She is not most women....
As a well-known barrister and the son of a duke, Ives confines his passionate impulses to discreet affairs with worldly mistresses. A twist of fate, however, has him looking for a new lover right when a fascinating woman shows up in his chambers, asking him to help save her father from the gallows. Unfortunately, he has already been asked to serve as the prosecutor in the case, but that only ensures close encounters with the rarity named Padua Belvoir. And every encounter increases his desire to tutor her in pleasure's wicked ways.
Having always been too tall, too willful, and too smart to appeal to men, Padua Belvoir is shocked when Ives shows interest in her. Knowing his penchant for helping the wrongly accused, she had initially thought he might be her father's best hope for salvation. Instead, he is her worst adversary - not least because every time he looks at her, she is tempted to give him anything he wants.

Didn't care for the narrator
This would have been better, I think, if I had read it instead of listening to the audiobook. I didn't care for the narrator. Her voices were not quite right to me. For example, Eva is a strong character and showed it in the previous book but, in this one, she sounds like a giggling school girl. I didn't particularly care for Ives' voice either. I hate that this taints the book for me. It's not the author's direct fault. Her work is good and I appreciate it
The story was interesting. I like that both main characters are out of the norm. I enjoy the way the brothers interact.
I look forward to the Duke's story.

I really enjoyed the first book of this series as narrated by Mary Jane Wells. She set a great "tone" for the characters. Lulu Russell may be okay for other books, but the thread from the first book is lost on her. Ive's was a favorite in the first book; in this episode he sounds like a jackass.
