Mary Jo Putney’s riveting Lost Lords series unleashes a high stakes royal plot—which may prove easier for Damian Mackenzie to handle than his own unruly desire...

He’s a bastard and a gambler and society’s favorite reprobate. But to Lady Kiri Lawford he’s a hero—braver than the smugglers he rescues her from, more honorable than any lord she’s ever met, and far more attractive than any man has a right to be. How can she not fall in love…?

But Damian Mackenzie has secrets that leave no room in his life for courting high-born young ladies—especially not the sister of one of his oldest friends. Yet when Kiri’s quick thinking reveals a deadly threat to England’s crown, Damian learns that she is nowhere near as prim and respectable as he first assumed...and the lady is far more alluring than any man can resist...

Reviewer: Nancy Narma

The third in the “Lost Lord series” follows Lady Kira Lawford, daughter of the
Duke of Ashton and descended from a Royal Hindu Bloodline, on her flight from
a supposed, arranged marriage to Godfrey Hitchcock that was rich with his family’s
sarcasm and insults, to being kidnapped by a band of smugglers and her introduction
to the tall, dark and handsome Damian “Mac” McKenzie, bastard son of Lord
Masterson and owner of the London Gambling Club, “Damian’s”. Mac would become her co-hort in foiling the plot to kidnap Princess Charlotte, daughter of the Prince Regent
and Heiress of England. Mac and Kira don’t stop there as they discover a plot to kill the Royals and throw the British Government into turmoil., creating a situation where the
British felt they had to end the war by treaty with some French Dominion territories
returned and France keeping its conquests, which Napolean would have welcomed.
Will they foil the plot in time? Will Mac and Kira ,despite the difference in their
social standing find true happiness together? If you love a mix of intrigue and romance within one cover, I suggest you accompany them on their escapades accentuated with disguises and scents. You’ll be wishing for more when you reach the last page and will
be impatiently waiting for number four!
