Dialogue was the same for everyone. Personalities were the same. This is part of a long series, so we were subjected to dull reacquaintances with previous characters, who all acted and spoke the same as everyone else. Everyone had liberal 21st Century ideals (which is fine, but...) instead of reflecting the varying viewpoints of their era.
As for Our Hero, by the midpoint I expected him to rip off his shirt to reveal the "S" and then fly across London. Too, too much. Waaaaay too much. And what about a 9 YO with no survival experience, doing what he did? Gah.
I wound up rolling my eyes far too much. Bored to tears, but because of the author's rep I expected something stunning to come. I waited. And waited. Nothing.
Have people forgotten how to plot? How to work dialogue? How to have their characters REACT to situations with EMOTION and keep that emotion rolling to spur them on? How to write a gosh-darned sex scene that has even a spark of passion (an emotion!) in it? How to write a historical without info-dumping and trying (unsuccessfully) to make it sound like casual conversation? Ugh.
Kendra Douglas, formerly Kendra Hawthorne, Lady Denshire is a divorcee and out for justice. Her ex-husband George, Lord Denshire told vile lies about her to gain a divorce and has taken her son from her all because her grandfather left her fortune in her hands and she refused to give him free reign. She wants to clear her name and get her son back, but has no idea where to begin. Dancing with Lucas opens a world of opportunities and when he offers to help her, it is a godsend!
While they are trying to clear her name, he too will have to face his past and come to terms with his actions. As they work together and shocking secrets are uncovered and memories are recovered, they grow closer, but thanks to her divorce decree, Kendra cannot remarry while Denshire lives, so HEA many not come for years – if ever.
This was a great slow burn, friends to lovers romance, with wonderful lead characters and lots of cameos from the Lost Lords and Redeemed Rogues and their wives. The book has a bit of everything, lies, scandal, intrigue, surprising twists and turns, familiar faces, grudges, forgiveness, a dash of paranormal, warm love scenes and a wonderful and sweet ending. And if that wasn’t enough, I found the author’s notes about Regency divorce and POW parole absolutely fascinating. This is the fifth book in the series, but it can easily be read as a standalone title. I really enjoyed this installment and am happy to recommend this title.
*I am voluntarily leaving a review for an eARC that was provided to me by NetGalley and the publisher.*
From the start, a disgraced divorcee shows up at a ball? Unescorted? In mourning? Contrived.
Them out of the blue she, after 9 years, suddenly remembers she had a daughter? Seriously? And this contributed nothing to the story line. Totally superflous.
Laying on of hands cures TB. Yeah, right. Again, contrived.
I loved how, in one chapter, the heroine states her runaway 9 yr old son would have no way to know where she was staying in London, and a few pages later miraculously knocks on the door. Not.
Then the grand finale. A very bad ripoff of Heyer's These Old Shades.
My last Putney. I want a refund.

To be fair, I continued reading this book, even after I had begun
to realise the plot was pretty unbelievable. From, the start, the dialogue and manners of the Kendra and Lucas were lacking in historic detail and it just got less period correct and lacked any sense of reality as the book progressed.
Add to the picture, some pretty unlikely coincidences, such as key characters, “turning up” when the story needed to move along. These included, a missing maid, lost children and a kind hearted courtesan. But the most silly part of the book was at the end, where the evil husband was exposed during a play at an upper class ball, then shot himself.
All in all, it filled a few hours of lockdown during the current pandemic. But I honestly don’t think this is one of the author’s best books.
