Buy This Book:

She's caught between a rake and certain ruin...
Felicity Worthington's only hope of avoiding poverty—or worse—is to accept her distant cousin's dubious bequest... a thriving, high-class brothel. Felicity has 90 days to convince her cousin's solicitors that Gareth Alexander has taught her the art of pleasing a man, though she's more interested in the gentleman she glimpses beneath Gareth's debauched airs, than in the rake he's become.
In the business of love...How much should he teach her?
Gareth Alexander, Marquis of Heathgate, has little incentive to help a spinster learn to manage a brothel—except that the alternatives for the prim, pretty Miss Worthington are even worse. His resistance to teaching Felicity how to be a madam leaves Gareth wondering if the honor he'd thought long dead still survives, and if that honor allows him to yield to the lady's ruinous scheme... and to their shared desires.

I have found that many times when an author approaches historical novels that the story or the characters start to become very cliche. But Grace Burrowes has done a great job in keeping both her world and her characters honest.
Gareth is book 7 of her Lonely Lords series but it can be read individually without having to read the previous books to understand it, although I will be adding the others to my TBR pile because I enjoyed reading Gareth's book so much.
Felicity and Gareth are put in each others path due to a request that's made in a will that puts the both of them in a position where they both begin to question their feelings for each other.
Gareth has to teach Felicity to run a brothel and Felicity begins to make Gareth question his own hardened heart.
I gave the heat rating 5 stars because the heat goes beyond just the love scenes, the heat sizzles even when there aren't love scenes. Grace has a talent for wording her love scenes so well that I couldn't not give her 5 stars for it. Gareth was such a beautiful read that I look forward to reading more in the very near future!

Until next time book lovers...
