    The unforgettable, magnificent Lord Hadleigh

    The guilty man had been apprehended, tried, and justice served. But the traitor's innocent widow would suffer the consequences. Lady Penny Penhurst, after testifying against her husband stood alone and almost penniless. Her testimony had strengthened Lord Hadleigh's case; he had to help her, without her ever knowing. Penny's only crime had been her naivety, her helplessness the consequence of the actions of a violent man. Hadleigh knew how damaging it could be, but he didn't fully grasp that she never wanted to be obligated to anyone, for anything, ever again. Lord Hadleigh had impressed me from his very introduction with his calm demeanour, and his aura of mystery. Unlike the The King's Elite's other heroes, he is a lawyer, not a spy, and had been mostly on the periphery of the action in the previous instalments. But now is his turn to shine as the trial of the infamous Boss approaches. I now believe that Hadleigh is my favorite character of Virginia Heath's, he is one of the most complex heroes I have read in quite some time, and I must confess that I didn't want this book to end. The imperturbable barrister is a tortured soul, trying to make amends for crimes that are not his own. He is noble, honorable, dedicated to justice, confident in the courtroom, but hesitant in his personal life, and very guarded in his affections. THE DETERMINED LORD HADLEIGH is a phenomenal character study, as both Hadley and Penny lock horns. She has realised that she wants to start living again, she needs the independence that was denied to her during her frightful marriage, but most of all, find the girl she once was. And she is attracted to Hadley (I mean, who wouldn't!). She is also very perceptive and soon sees beneath Hadleigh's veneer: his career is an unmitigated success, but his inner life is a mess. Both characters experience enormous growth, and while doing so, they slowly fall in love. The first kiss is extraordinary; tender, full of promise, but opening the door to many questions and doubts. The dialogues are spectacular, and the chemistry between Hadleigh and Penny is much more than sexual; it is that of two people finding themselves with the other's insight and understanding. Penny's one year-old son Freddie also plays an important part in the narrative. This book, besides being Hadleigh's story, also wraps up the story arc of The King's Elite, reuniting all the players whose individual tales make up this brilliant series to see the trial come to a satisfactory conclusion. The book is magnificent, the epilogue utterly delightful; I could not have wished for a more perfect ending to this superb series.

    One of the best books I’ve read this year.

    I received an eARC at no cost from the author, and I am leaving a voluntary and honest review. Thank you. 4.5* Review originally published at my blog, Romancing Romances. This this is the final instalment of the King’s Elite. And what a great ending! In this book, we do not have a spy, but a lawyer (or barrister) instead: Lord Tristan Hadleigh. We have a saying here in Portugal: “De boas intenções está o inferno cheio”, which means the same as the English saying “The road to hell is paved with good intentions”. And in this book, our main character tries to do his best, with his best intentions, but things take some time before they fall in place. As a barrister, Hadleigh tries to uphold the law and the truth, but he also realizes that the law is at serious fault when it comes to women and their rights. And so, due to some of his personal history that I will not divulge so not to spoil the book for you, dear reader, he acts has an anonymous contributor to help the women that need assistance after lawsuits and other legal actions done against their husbands and families. And that’s what leads us to our main couple. Hadleigh is in court, and a traitor is on trial. His wife and child are left with nothing. He feels somewhat responsible, and tries to help. But Penny doesn’t want any help. After years of being controlled, this amazing woman wants only her freedom, and she will do what it takes to take care of her little boy, Freddie, and herself. Penny is a friend of Clarissa, the heroine in the first book, and so she knows about the King’s Elite. And she believes the anonymous helper is her friend. When she finds out that Lord Hadleigh is actually the one helping, she doesn’t get it, and he doesn’t understand why she won’t accept his help. It’s a very clever plot point, that shows how good actions may have a different and unpredictable outcome. They get to know each other, and they both learn to trust and make (healthy, reasonable) compromises for what they really want in life, and of each other. It had some funny moments, with the gossip between the ladies, and it was great to revisit old characters. I loved the chemistry Penny and Tristan had, and how adorable Freddie was. And even more: how great Tristan was with Freddie, it just melts your heart. One of the best books I’ve read this year. A great ending to a great series. P.S. The epilogue was awesome – you will love the reunion and… a few things more.

    Wonderful and sweet

    The Determined Lord Hadleigh is a wonderful and sweet ending to another fantastic series by Virginia Heath. As with Virginia Heath's previous series, The Wild Warriners, I really didn't want The King's Elite to end. I loved every moment and every book of The King's Elite. Each book in the series has had its own special flair. I've been curious about Lord Hadleigh throughout the series and was thrilled that I was able to read his story. Lord Hadleigh is a barrister from the previous three books who is stoic and driven but with loads of hero potential. In book one and two he is all business, but his decisive nature plays an important role. In book 3 he is all business but shows a little more personality and is also pivotal in spurring Lord Gray to acknowledge his feeling for Thea the heroine. When Hadleigh becomes the hero of his own book, The Determined Lord Hadleigh, we really get to see what makes him so determined. Virginia has paired Hadleigh with Penny from, book 1, The Mysterious Lord Millcroft. Penny suffered a terrible trauma and betrayal which has left her a widow and mother of a small child. I was excited to see how Virginia Heath handled Penny and she did an amazing job. Penny is a fantastic heroine and perfect for Hadleigh. I love that Penny does not want to be beholden to anyone and wants to recover her life on her own terms. Great story, terrific characters and cameos from some of my favorites from the series. I was especially happy to see Sebastian and Clarissa from The Mysterious Lord Millcroft. (My favorite!) I loved Seb's off page conversation with Penny, where he confuses her with the analogy of the nut and the mallet. Loved the epilogue. Basically, I loved everything about this book.
