I am moving on to more NetGalley books. If I’m going to get 50 of them read this year, I’ve got to get cracking!
Synopsis ~ Last Night with the Duke by Amelia Grey
Could finding love be his greatest scandal of all?
The Duke of Griffin has never lived down his reputation as one of the Rakes of St. James. Now rumors are swirling that his twin sisters may bear the brunt of his past follies. Hiring a competent chaperone is the only thing Griffin has on his mind–until he meets the lovely and intriguing Miss Esmeralda Swift. In ways he could never have expected, she arouses more than just his curiosity.
Esmeralda Swift considered herself too sensible to ever fall for a scoundrel, but that was before she met the irresistibly seductive Duke of Griffin. His employment offer proves too tempting for her to resist. She can’t afford to be distracted by his devilish charms because the stakes are so high for his sisters’ debut Season. . .unless one of London’s most notorious rakes has had a change of heart and is ready to make Esmeralda his bride?
Don’t say in private what you don’t want to hear repeated in public.

He removed his damp hat while noting the room was sparsely furnished with an old, inexpensive desk, a couple of chairs, but little else.
