After a long break I’m going to try and start doing this weekly meme again. I’ve missed it.
Wishlist Wednesday is a book meme hosted by Pen to Paper Blog. Pick one book per week that has been on your wishlist for some time, or just added, that you can’t wait to get off the wishlist and into your hands.
Summary- Toby Burgess is no hero. That fact becomes agonizingly true for the viscount when his wife abandons him for a foreign count. For proper, scandal averse Toby, who enforced the ton’s unwritten rules, this is a disaster. He vows to duel his wife’s lover.
Marquis Miguel de Balla has long despised Toby Burgess. Toby ruled Eton and devoted far too much attention on tormenting the one-time stutterer. But when his friend asks him to be a second at his duel, and when Toby is accidentally injured, Miguel takes him in. He just doesn’t need to be nice to the man.
Clearly duels on remote hills in Sussex have disadvantages apart from being illegal and resulting in injuries. Yet when Toby discovers the strikingly handsome Marquis is the same man he tortured at Eton, the man’s discomfit around him makes sense. And for a reason Toby can’t entirely understand, Toby becomes intent on redeeming himself.
Why- Jesus God guys, I love this series.
