The Truth Could Ruin Her

Perdita, the widowed Duchess of Ormond, keeps a dangerous secret—the truth of how her brutish husband died. But a mysterious avenger seems to know it, too, and when anonymous threats turn into public attacks, there’s only one friend she can turn to for help—her husband’s former secretary, Lord Archer Lisle. The man who witnessed her every heartache. The kind of man whose love she can only dream of…

Will His Love Save Her?

The youngest of the Duke of Pemberton’s five sons, Lord Archer Lisle is used to waiting his turn. For years, he could only stand by, seething, as Perdita suffered at the hands of her husband, but now she’s under threat from another source—one who will stop at nothing to make her pay for the late duke’s death. But the good-natured Archer can be dangerous when crossed—and he’ll do anything to keep the woman he’s adored for so long safe in his arms…



My Rating: 5 Roses

A delightfully sweet, absolutely fantastic historical romance, Why Lords Lose Their Hearts was simply amazing. From the lovely romance, to the thrills of danger, and the unexpected twist, this book was wonderful.

Perdita was a lovely heroine. After being stuck in a horrible marriage for years, she was determined to live her life on her own terms and make her own decisions. Unfortunately, that sometimes translated into being stubborn about really stupid things. But, beyond that, she was stronger than she gave herself credit for and an overall likable character. I thought she was great.

Archer was absolutely adorable. This man was so sweet and wonderful and just amazing. He had loved Perdita for years and was determined to do everything he could to keep her safe. I loved how devoted he was to her and how, even while he was trying to convince her to marry him, he always honored her wishes. He was perfect and I adored him.

The romance was lovely. I thought they were so sweet together, with how Archer had loved Perdita for so long and how Perdita, even though she was wary of men, knew she could trust Archer. And, they had some chemistry between them that turned the heat up. I thought they were a perfect couple.

The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. The constant danger of Perdita's stalker kept me on the edge of my seat and I never suspected who it turned out to be. It was quite a shocker, especially considering the full extent of this person's insanity. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was perfect.

Why Lords Lose Their Hearts was a fantastic historical romance. I absolutely loved this brilliant book. It was simply wonderful, from start to finish. Romance lovers, this is a book worth reading.
