Let’s start with the back of the book:
Recently widowed, Lady Laurel Laningham glanced around the interior of the overturned coach. With her young son in her arms, the task of climbing out of the crippled vehicle appeared overwhelmingly difficult. At that moment, a stranger offered his help and reached down for the child, but before she could struggle out after him, he immediately rode off with her son. She followed only to discover the fellow was Jamie’s new guardian. If she wanted any part in her son’s future, she must fight her sister-in-law plus her own deep attraction to Jamie’s new guardian.
Furious that the widow would abscond with his ward, Lord Adron Gladrey rescued Jamie, determined to protect him from a selfish mother able to persuade men to do her bidding and uncaring enough to expose her son to untold danger. After seeing her beauty for himself, he believed every word against her. He vowed she would soon learn he was not so easy to manipulate.
Complicating her life still further, a villainous jewel thief committed murder for a rare blue diamond she had no idea was in her possession and he would kill again. After many twist and turns, she must fight for her life. Will her son’s guardian put aside his prejudices against beautiful women in time to help her or will she follow her husband to an early grave?
Now for my review:
Conduct Unbecoming of a Gentleman grabbed my attention from the opening scene of an apparent kidnapping of the young boy Jamie. From there I was unable to put the book down…literally, I stayed up as late as I possibly could last night, reading until my eyes just wouldn’t stay open, and then I continued reading today until I finished (sorry floors you’ll get cleaned another day ;).
I know what you’re thinking “Angela, another romance?”, I’m telling you this was not your regular everyday romance novel. This book had everything! Kidnapping, stolen jewels, murder and yes romance (hot, sexy romance to boot!), every time I thought I had this book figured out a twist would happen and it took the story in another direction.
The main characters Laurel and Adron easily drew me into their story lines, their pain, anger, fear and passion jumped right off the page and I felt every emotion with them. Right up to the point where Laurel was afraid about a murderer on the loose and she was alone and in fear, while I was deep into that scene someone knocked on my front door and I literally had to pull my nails out of the ceiling and calm my nerves to answer the door.
Author Wareeze Woodson knows how to make you fall in love with her characters also she can make you want to jump into the pages and punch some in the face. Laurel’s sister-in-Law Rhonda was one such character, I will let you read it so you understand what I mean, all I will say here is what a b%&ch. :)
If you’re looking for a great read that will have you turning page after page to find out what happens next then I highly recommend this book!
