Meddle in a Marquess’s Affair by Tammy Andresen

Rakes make the worst husbands…
Not that Rex Baluster, the Marquess of Highwater would want her anyway. But when he arrived at Lady Camille Ducat’s door shot and near death, she didn’t hesitate to help him. She had no reputation to preserve after all. She’d given that up when she ended her engagement to another rake. And though her heart beat wildly every time she looked at Rex, she knew that to involve herself with such a man would only lead to heartache.
When the Duke of Longley asked him to help right a wrong, Rex agreed without question. He wasn’t like most lords, having grown up as a street urchin in London’s notorious Docklands. He talked best with his fists. Nor was he afraid when he was wounded. Somehow, Rex had always assumed his end would be as violent as his beginning. What he didn’t expect was for a beautiful angel with the gentlest touch he’s ever known to nurse him back to health. If only he were the type of man who could be a good husband to Lady Camille.
The more time Rex spends with Camille, however, the harder it is to deny his feelings. Can they put their pasts aside? Rakes, after all, make the BEST husbands.
This series is just magical and makes me smile and laugh when it comes to what the men call the curse. These two are a perfect match and you know it from the moment they meet. Love hit them hard and fast and that’s what protected her from evil. I was shocked by how far her mother would go to get what she wants. But the scenes at the party were amazing!
Camille put on a strong front for her sister, but she feared she would pick another horrible man. I loved her from the start, but when she told Chase what she would have done to him, she became a favorite. She wasn’t going to do what her mother wanted no matter what.
Rex knew his heart was lost the moment he saw her. Even stuck in bed injured he could charm anyone. I loved how he didn’t bat an eye at going after Michael and was going to make him pay one way or another.
The ending with the gypsy was amazing and I can’t wait to see what happens next after that.
