Achilles older brother, Odysseus has died and now he is the Earl of Stonemere.
Achilles never thought to take the title but now he has it. Along with the Title is seems he has his brother's future bride. Achilles knows he has to marry to carry on the Title for his family and he might as well marry Theo as another women.
Theo is very smart and with her Pin Money has bought land and worked some business deals. Although Theo doesn't want to get married she knows it will open her up to more freedom for her endeavors. Theo and Achilles have met and shared a few society dances but neither really knows the other. Theo knows that she is attracted to Achilles but when it comes closer to their time to actually marry, she ask him if they could not get to know each other better.
Achilles finds Theo shy and somewhat attractive at first but when he starts to get to know her, her mind and her temperament he finds she is irresistible. But she would be shocked at his physical needs...or would she?
In addition to their hot romance there is someone trying to kill Achilles which is adding to the story line in the book.
This is my first book by Ms. Mowbray but I plan on reading more books as soon as I can!

"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
I fell in love with this series basically right from the first page, I will admit going into it I didn't realize it would be a little hotter than the normal historical romance I picked up but darned if I was not happy to get that little bit of extra, this book is steamy and it's interesting to see how the Lords make this side of their personalities work for them, more importantly their ladies.
I will say that I had not read anything by Sorcha before and apparently this series is a spin-off from another series, The Market and while you won't be lost if you pick this one up having never read the other I found a few times I was wondering about somethings that (particularly relationships) that must have occurred in the Market series.
That aside I fell for this book and fell hard. I felt an immediate kinship with Theo and Stonemere had my heart swooning every other page. I loved the intrigue and mystery, though I will say that it is fairly evident early on who is at fault for all the misdeeds, of course I am not sure the author was completely trying to hide it. I loved how the characters themselves discovered the treachery and how they handled it. I loved that the steamy scenes blended so well into the story so as not to truly take away from what was going on around the couple, which is a heck of a lot! I loved the way Theo works the system to not only make London a better place but also to fulfill herself. I loved the banter and he friendships. I loved the secondary characters and the character development, especially when it came to Stonemere and him working through what we of course now know is PTSD. My hear broke for him over and over but I loved that together with Theo he was able to find peace.
All in all I was completely lost in this book, it is a book that you won't want to put down making it a fairly quick read. I can't wait for the next book in the Lustful Lords series and you can bet I am going back to start The Market series now.
