From the Inside Flap
To prevent a dear friend from marrying notorious Ian Lennard, the Viscount St. Clair, Felicity Taylor reveals his shady past in her anonymous London gossip column. But the dauntless miss never imagined St. Clair's rage -- for the dangerous rake was now short a bride, and still in desperate need of an heir.
So imagine Felicity's surprise when the hot-blooded lord sets his sights on her! Threatened with exposure and ruin, what choice does she have but to marry him?
A wife was merely a necessity to secure his fortune -- or so Ian thought until he met Felicity. But the audacious female is his match in both wit and passion...and she may be more than he can handle. For burning kisses and tender touches tempt him to lay bare his very soul -- but Ian knows the secrets he harbors will drive her away. So nothing would be more dangerous than actually falling in love with his fiery new bride! --This text refers to the mass_market edition.

There is an evil villain, but there are loyal friends too, a principled hero with a stout heart and a heroine who is beautiful inside and out. It has much to recommend it.
The main characters are wonderful, engaging and believable. They are both strong willed and determined, often clashing and trying to outwit each other, until Cupid strikes, then everything changes. There are many humorous moments, plenty of passion and good old fashioned love.
In this book you'll catch up with some of the characters from the other two books in the series, I really like this in a book and the author's style.
Luckily for him Felicity is a real insipid Miss. Although she talks big about wanting respect and love, she simply melts at his masterful touch and always gives in despite her promises to herself. Ugh. I rolled my eyes many times at her actions and reasoning, and in the end had to stop reading.
The other annoyance is the lack of historical reality. Ian is discovered kissing Felicity and then sneaks into her room to forcefully seduce her so she has to marry him (!) and once again he is spotted by, we are told, the ton's biggest gossip. But nothing is mentioned of it by anyone afterward. In reality (and other novels) Felicity would be ostracised completely.
All in all I cannot recommend this book. Read other by Jeffries, or Courtney Milan, Sherry Thomas or Julia Quinn. These have realistic, strong women falling for good, honourable men. Not arrogant rakes forcefully seducing silly girls.
THE DANGEROUS LORD is a fascinating historical romance because it fully captures the reader's interest and keeps it until the end.Although the plot is not the newest but Ms. Jeffries's lively characters and their deep and witty conversations make it a first-class piece of work of the genre.
