Book Synopsis

Society’s most exclusive invitation...

Welcome to the Phoenix Club, where London’s most audacious, disreputable, and intriguing ladies and gentlemen find scandal, redemption, and second chances.

After Miss Kathleen Shaughnessy is seen kissing a gentleman in a Gloucestershire garden, she’s sent to London to avoid scandal. She doesn’t, however, plan to abandon her research of mating rituals, and she knows the perfect person to provide assistance: her brother’s best friend, Lord Lucien Westbrook, who is renowned for helping others. 
 
Disdained by his haughty father, Lucien runs the Phoenix Club, an inclusive community where no one is ostracized or overlooked. It’s also a secret rendezvous for the Foreign Office, where important connections are made, and information is passed—until a scandal ricochets through the club and threatens Lucien’s position with his superiors.
 
As Lucien works to maintain control of the club, his best friend’s sister seeks his personal expertise and assistance with researching the “science” of mating. He can’t possibly say yes, but the more time he spends with the genuine and captivating Kat, the weaker his resistance. He’s soon battling his desire for her as well as the powerful forces who wish to push him out of his club. When Kat is thrust into real danger, Lucien will stop at nothing to protect the woman who has stolen his heart.

    I have really enjoyed this series, and Lucien’s story is my favorite. Lucien Westbrook has helped people with all kinds of problems since his return to England. That includes a few fairly successful match-making attempts. Now it is Lucien’s turn. His opportunity for happily ever after comes in the form of Miss Kathleen Shaughnessy, the feisty very curious younger sister of his brother-in-law. The attraction between these two is magnetic, and chemistry sizzling. Try as he may, Lucien is about to learn that some things cannot be resisted (at least indefinitely). There is trouble at the club, and a mystery as to exactly who is causing it. Lucien is a thoughtful, helpful, gentleman, and reformed rake. Kat is absolutely adorable, and determined to learn about mating habits, of any and all species. She keeps Lucien on his toes. This is the last story in a wonderfully fun and entertaining series. Great read! I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and am voluntarily reviewing it.
  • Lucien’s story

    Lucien finally gets his story… It was time for Lucien to get his own story. There’s scandal at the club (Evie and Lucien) and Lucien is trying to take control back from the foreign office. Lucien is different and likes to help people, though he’s a bit shady, too (the war and the cover up). Kathleen is his friends sister who is a breath of fresh air. She’s scientifically minded and wants to study up close and personal, the mating habits of the marriage mart. She’s open minded and interesting and not missish at all. Kat is the perfect foil for Lucien. Steamy research must ensue. Recommend.

    I’ve enjoyed this whole series so much. This last book finishes it off nicely. After Kat gets Lucien to help her with her studies they soon find out they don’t like to be apart. Great romance with some mystery tied in.
