No True Gentleman by Liz Carlyle

In this powerful and passionate novel from Liz Carlyle, one of romance fiction's brightest new stars, a high-society murder brings scandal to the lords and ladies of the ton — and unexpected desire to a pair of unlikely lovers.

No True Gentleman

Lady Catherine Wodeway knows that no true gentleman would presume to kiss a lady senseless without a proper introduction — not even to save her life. yet somehow, Maximilian de Rohan's dark good looks, brooding manner, and mysterious past make it all too easy for Catherine to forget that she's a lady.

Although Max is stunned by Catherine's beauty, honesty, and charm, he knows that getting mixed up with a noblewoman can end badly, especially when her brother is a murder suspect. But when Catherine stumbles onto the key to Max's murder investigation and unwittingly places herself in the killer's hands he will risk everything to pull her out of danger and into the arms of love.


This is my second by Liz Carlyle and the sequel to A Woman of Virtue. As far as I know, there aren't any books following this one, but I could be mistaken (please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong).

I enjoyed it, but as with AWoV, it kind of slowed down in the middle. Not enough to lose, me, but I did find myself rather impatient to see it move along.

I enjoyed Lady Caroline. She was quick-witted and very sweet and strongwilled enough to go toe to toe with the enigmatic Max.

For Max's part, he's been burned by a woman of society already, and isn't willing to take the chance on another one. He fights temptation at every turn, but eventually realizes it's fruitless.

I like that once Lady Caroline decided on a course of action that she stuck with it, and I enjoyed seeing the characters from AWoV again.

Overall it was good, but a little slow moving. I'd still recommend it, however, and I look forward to reading more by LC in the future.
