Loving Lord Lucifer…

An independent bluestocking sneaks into a library to read rare Greek texts and ends up with a husband instead.

Jacqueline “Jack” Walters loves archery and Greek military history. In her third season she has failed to inspire so much as one marriage proposal and is planning to settle into the quiet life of a spinster.

Gideon Wolfe, Earl of Harrington, has been avoiding marriage but a case of mistaken identity in the library has left him saddled with an argumentative and unwilling fiancee.

My Review

This is just book one in the Haberdashers series and it is addicting! A case of mistaken identity and being in the library at the wrong time leads to marriage that neither one planned on. Jack and Gideon were complete strangers when they met and you get to know them as they get to know each other. They fight over the oddest things at times and surprise each other at times too. I loved the whole story even though at times I wanted to scream at them, but that’s what makes it great. The ending is a twist that I didn’t see coming and worked out great.

Jack is definitely a woman not to be messed with. She has a love of history and many weapons that she knows how to use and isn’t afraid to use either. She doesn’t realize that many men admire her, but are imitated by her without her knowing it. I loved her from the start. At times she was vulnerable and jumped to conclusions but that made her more real.

Gideon is a man that can surprise you at almost every turn. Just when he thinks he knows his wife she surprises him with something new. It takes him awhile to realize he loves Jack and is confused by his reactions to things at times which makes him lovable. He is very active in politics and has a fun friendship with a duke.

This is a must read!
