Even though Lunden is a Duke, he isn't a popular member of the ton. Instead he's living a secluded life far away from society and its ruthless gossip and rumors. He's forced to leave this part of his life behind for a while though, because his best friend needs his help. Matthew's parents desperately want their daughter Amelia to find a husband. Amelia has a strong spirit and doesn't want to spend the rest of her life with someone she doesn't love. Therefore she makes it incredibly difficult for her suitors to get close to her. Her family is running out of time and therefore Matthew asks Lunden for his help. Is he the right man for the job?
Amelia makes sure she has an agreement with Lunden, she doesn't want to let a man choose a husband for her. Lunden will advise and guide her, but Amelia still wants to decide what happens to her own future. While Lunden tries to help her, Matthew has different plans though that will break her lively spirit without a doubt. Meanwhile the attraction between the Duke and his best friend's sister keeps growing. This is a compicated situation for him, because of his reputation Lunden doesn't think he should be anybody's husband. Can they resist temptation? Will Amelia get the chance to marry the man of her dreams or will she end up with a broken heart and a husband she loathes?
London's Wicked Affair is a fabulous romantic story. I absolutely loved Lunden. He's a kindhearted and complex man with a fascinating multilayered personality. Amelia challenges him, which is exactly what he needs. She is strong, daring and stubborn. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to fight for her rights. I liked her fiery spirit a lot. It was fun to read about her dreams, wishes, adventures and plans. Her life is about to change and I enjoyed reading about every single step towards the future she's envisioned for herself. I love stories about courageous women and London's Wicked Affair definitely delivers in this area, as well as in many others. It's a complete story with a large number of intriguing scenes and plenty of chemistry.
Anabelle Bryant has a terrific descriptive writing style. She makes the time she writes about come to life in a fantastic way. It was easy to picture the dresses, the balls, the customs and the bright and dark side of being part of society. She clearly understands what she's writing about and effortlessly transported me to another time and place. The joy her writing is giving her is obvious and this gave me a happy feeling the entire time I was reading. London's Wicked Affair is a gorgeous entertaining story that captivated me from beginning to end.
