The Rakes of Fallow Hall wagered that they would never succumb to love—yet in Vivienne Lorret's newest novel, the final rogue meets his match

Frances Thorne can handle anything—except losing her position, her home, and her father to debtor's prison all in one day. So when a generous offer of assistance falls into her lap, she's grateful for a second chance, even if it seems too good to be true. The last thing she needs is for the charming, infuriating—maddening—Lord Lucan Montwood to stand in her way.

The end of the bachelors' wager is near, and Lucan Montwood can taste victory—just so long as he can stay away from the one woman who sees through his façade. Yet when he learns that Frances has been caught in an insidious trap, Lucan can't deny that he will do anything to help. Convincing her to trust him is the hard part, resisting her is next to impossible, but falling in love with her? That may be far too simple.

The Maddening Lord Montwood is the final story in The Rakes of Fallow Hall series. Vivienne Lorret has out done herself with this ending. This is the story of Lucan Montwood and Frances Thorne. Lucan is the last bachelor in the wager with his friends and is determined to win so that he can pay off a debt that saved Frances' father. Frances is determined to support herself and her father but then she loses everything. Lucan is trying to protect her but she doesn't trust him until she sees his softer and generous side. They both try to fight the desire and love building between them. This is a wonderful story that shows what lead up to the current events and gives a look into the future of the Fallow Hall.

The final installment of "The Rakes of Fallow Hall". This is a stand alone story, but I would suggest reading the other two in the series. Fast paced tale of secrets, treachery, deceit,passion, romance, and finding a true HEA. Engaging and challenging characters. The storyline is unique, interesting and intriguing. Well written series with a wonderful cast of characters. Fans of romance, Regency England, treachery and love will enjoy this story. Another enjoyable and satisfying Historical romance! *Received for an honest review from the publisher via Edelweiss* **Cross-posted on My Book Addiction Reviews dot com** Rating: 4 Heat rating: Mild Reviewed by: April R, courtesy of My Book Addiction and More

In The Maddening Lord Montwood, Lucan truly is that sort of man that makes you want to pull HIS hair out until he sees sense, the bet be damned. Yes, the men in this series have all agreed on a wager proposed by him: the one who stays unmarried will be owed significant money, in Lucan’s case, enough to bring him out of debt. Watching Gabriel and Rafe fall for their new brides hasn’t softened his resolve, he is determined to remain strong and untethered. Frances Thorne is similar to earlier heroines in this story: intelligent, determined and in a situation that isn’t entirely of her own making. See, Frances’ father is a poor manager of money, and with him in debtor’s prison, Frances must find a position that will provide her with the ability to survive. A particularly generous offer comes, but for some reason Lord Montwood just will NOT allow her to proceed without sticking his opinion, feet and rather overbearing personality into the mix. But, he is intriguing. Very intriguing. Lucan’s bluster with Frances is much of a sham: he’s completely convinced that he is no better than her disgraced father, and while he will go to great lengths to save her from ruin, he’s not finding himself captivated by her. Not at all. Not even for a moment. Several twists, some devious and nefarious moments from a scoundrel and the determination of Frances to convince Lucan that he is exactly WHO and What she needs and wants, and this story flew by. Humor and heart mixed with equal measure, giving Lucan some truly worrisome moments, from his perspective and mine. Would he be able to believe that he is deserving of happiness and love, and that Frances is what he needs…… You’ll want to read on to know. A perfect installment, perhaps even my favorite of this series, it reads well alone but you will want to know the other characters and follow their own stories. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Have got to read this series from beginning to end. From the very beginning I was enraptured by this story. Determined to never fall in love and win the wager with his friends Lucan can taste victory. Struggling to not lose all she holds dear Frances insists she will succeed. Neither expected fate to step in. Now Lord Montwood will move heaven and earth to protect the woman who has become the one thing he can not bare to lose, Frances. The Maddening Lord Montwood is funny, sexy, mysterious and an emotionally entertaining journey into regency romance. Received an ARC from Edelweiss for an honest review.
