DEVIL BY NAME Rupert Stirling Duke of Stratton has long since acuired the nickname Devil and with outrageous exploits both in and out of ladies’ bedchambers my has he earned it. AnI m used to some ridiculous love "At First Sight Stories But This One "first sight stories but this one just a little too uick for me A relatively short novel that ept my attention throughout Both the H and heroine were uite fascinating characters I really admired the heroine who has to live with the legacy of a sordid reputation that SHE HAS DONE NOTHING TO RECEIVE SHE MANAGES TO has done nothing to receive She manages to her head high among the vile gossipy matrons of the Ton because she has two close female friends fellow widowed duchesses who had also been in horribly unsatisfying marriages Everyone thinks of Pandora as a scarlet adulteress because her late husband had died in a duel with her alleged lover everyone slandered her even because the alleged lover had also been a married man with ids In reality Pandora is a virgin widow because her late husband had been gay and he had died fighting a duel with a bi sexual married man who had been having an affair with his lover I really don t understand how Pandora could have played a martyr for a husband who was such a selfish asshole but perhaps it was because her marriage had provided her father with the means to pay off a lot of debts Sigh She s yet another young woman whose mercenary parents have used her for their own material gain The hero is Rupert the rakish and handsome Duke Of Stratton Rupert happens to be former soldier whose father died while he was off fighting on the continent Unfortunately for Rupert before he soldier whose father died while he was off fighting on the continent Unfortunately for Rupert before he left to fight in the war he had gotten himself involved in a friends with benefits sexual arrangement with a woman whose goals had included marriage This lady had not been some shy innocent ingenue but a very mercenary social climber who had hoped to gain a proposal of marriage from a duke s son before he left for the war Things didn t work out the way she intended because Rupert had bluntly told her she was in no way ualified or suitable to be a candidate for the position of his future wife This angered her so much that she set to working her charms on Rupert s dad and miraculously got the old duke to marry her This was supposed to be her grand vengeance against Rupert for spurning and insulting her After his dad s death Rupert is faced with the big problem of getting rid of the witch because his dad had stipulated in his will that she should still be allowed to stay in any of the family s numerous estates and homes whenever she felt like it This cunning she dragon then started to follow Rupert to whichever home in which he was presently ensconced She did this in her desperate attempts to create scandal to seduce Rupert and to get him to marry her This avaricious tart truly had some high hopes for herself and her attempts to seduce a man who continually rejected her and was repulsed by her were just pathetic Therefore Rupert has a big problem of his own by trying avert any future scandal that his stepmamaformer lover would inevitably causeRupert s first meeting with Pandora is uite dramatic because he manages to save her from a wannabe rapiststalker The young man thought that Pandora being a widowed duchess with a scandalous reputation would be willing to open her legs for him Although Rupert saves her his opinion of her is very low because he also believes all the untrue rubbish that everyone is saying about her He escorts her home and is shocked to find her living in a modest town house Pandora s dead hubby was not as generous in his will as Rup. Risué behavior is beyond Pandora Maybury widowed Duchess of Wyndwood although with her dark secret she’s far too well acuainted with being the subject of ribald gossip for her.

Liking If only the Tonnew just how innocent she really wasincluding Rupert who after rescuing her from a compromising situation seems intent on wickedly compromising her himself. ,
