A Woman of Virtue by Liz Carlyle


A Woman of Virtue
In the lonely months since her husband's death, Cecilia Lorimer has hidden her emptiness by devoting herself to a charity mission for the unfortunate women of London's slums. But when the dashing Lord Delacourt takes control, she feels an uncharacteristic urge to flee. Just six years earlier, Delacourt had proven himself to be the immoral rake society called him, nearly ruining her reputation in the bargain.
It's whispered that the womanizing Delacourt is vain, vindictive, and merciless. But he's a man who honors his wagers -- and one result lands him in his brother-in-law's godforsaken mission, face-to-face with the woman who has long haunted his dreams. When treachery closes in, only he knows how to guard Cecilia from the consequences of her own principles. Can a profligate knave persuade a virtuous woman that he is worthy of her trust -- and her love?


I'm pretty sure I read this, or at least part of it, before today. But I didn't remember all of the story, so I'm glad I re-read it.

Though I can't say I absolutely loved it, I did enjoy it. The heroine got on my nerves a bit, when she insisted that she had to be involved with everything, and ran head first into danger, and antagonized the hero at every turn. For that matter, he irritated me as well, with his constant badgering of the heroine and refusal to accept that he was a normal man...

But otherwise, I found the story very well written and pleasant.

I'm sorry for the shortness of my post, but with 97 reviews left to do this month, I'm keeping them short and sweet. Though I would love to discuss this book, or any of the others I plan on reading, if you're so inclined.

3.5 out of 5
