Audrey's maid Gillian is just as much her friend as her servant, and Audrey tries her best to allow Gillian to live a life closer to the one circumstances and death cheated her of rather than the life she has been forced into. An afternoon of errands in this vein leads Gillian to come into contact with James, the Earl of Pembroke. With a reputation equal to the League of Rogues Audrey holds so dear, James intrigues Gillian on a level she has never experienced. She knows she should correct him in his assumption she is a noblewoman but she just wants to escape and pretend for one afternoon. She never expected to have so much in common with the handsome, intelligent and sexy earl but self preservation demands that she flee his presence - along with an urgent need to get to Audrey to warn her off her current scheme of revenge against one of London's more unsavory nobleman. Too bad James has no intention of letting her escape so easily...
And now for Audrey and Jonathan's story- holy hotness! These 2 have been a hot mess for a while now and the UST just keeps building! A heated moment turned into a rejection that Jonathan regrets and he just can't seem to dig himself out of that hole with her. They definitely need to work on their communication though. She loves him and won't marry for anything less than love, so she has turned to other more dangerous interests to occupy her time instead. Jonathan loves Audrey as well but he is unwilling to subject her to the whispers that still follow him surrounding the circumstances of his birth and upbringing. Her spirited and independent nature is everything he could want in a wife but he still feels as though he doesn't have enough to offer her as a husband.
When he catches her on an errand that would have her brother locking her in a room for the foreseeable future if he ever finds out, Jonathan is ready to lose his everloving mind. Misunderstandings pile up, things get heated in more ways than one, and once again they find themselves at odds despite the fact they would be much happier if impulse and assumption were just put to the side. We leave off as Audrey is about to make another impulsive move that could have a disastrous outcome, and it is going to be far too long to wait for 2018 and the rest of the story!
I can't wait to see if Gillian and James will find a way to fall in love. Even though her father was of the gentry but her mother wasn't and they weren't married it shouldn't prevent Gillian from loving James.
And Audrey...and Jonathan? Each of them thinks the other doesn't want them. Will they truly keep running away from each other? I can hardly wait for their complete story too.
This book was an excellent foregleem of what is to come. It's well worth reading to have your taste buds whetted.
I love Lauren Smith’s historical offerings and the two novellas contained in Her Wicked Longing were both perfect lengths for a little lunchtime treat!
The first novella; His Wicked Maid gives the reader the beginnings of the relationship between ladies maid Gillian Beaumont and James Fordyce, also known as Lord Pembroke, this is a prequel to the first full length novel of the authors new series; Wicked Earls Club and The Earl of Pembroke is due for release in 2018.
"Never be ashamed to show such lovely skin…"
Gillian and James introduction was just enough of an appetizer for the reader that I cannot wait for the release of the full story. Lots of chemistry and a little humour made their opening story a treat to read.
His Wicked Lessons brings us back to the League of Rogues series, the next book being Hid Wicked Secret telling the story of Jonathan St. Laurent and Audrey Sheridan. Audrey has figured quite a lot in the previous books and readers learned a huge secret about her towards the end of the last book released.
She craved the same freedom as men…
Audrey isn’t your usual docile, coquettish female of the time, and her feisty nature and devil-may-care attitude equally attracts and frustrates Jonathan. The novella leaves Audrey at a bit of a crossroads and I am interested to see where Lauren takes the characters journey when the full length book is released.
"I’m trying to be a gentleman… but lord you are tempting me… I fear that if you do not demand for me to step away, I will kiss you."
If you are a fan of the authors writing, I think these two novellas will be right up your street, they are also a good way for a new reader to give her a go, and see if the rest of her historical romances are something that you would like to read. Both were entertaining, and just whet the appetite enough to make you desperate for more.
*While part of a series this book can be read as a stand alone.*
