    It's a fun romp for sure and very steamy!

    Fantastic writing, great intrigue and a wonderful romance blossoms all at the same time! It's a fun romp for sure and very steamy! The lady is indeed a hellion! But with good purpose and intentions. She is a hero to the lesser class "ladies." The women whom no one else is willing to help. Lady Sophia Barnes is a very independent lady. She is headstrong and intelligent, which can be dangerous when mixed with carelessness. Sophia is very good at deception, which is a plus where she must travel to investigate the problems she is asked to help with. Her father has spoiled her most of her life and not seriously delved into her need for a husband, until now. He has given her an ultimatum that she does not believe. He tells her that she must find a match this season or he will do it for her. He already has someone in mind, but he will not tell her who the gentleman is. He fears she will try to run him off! She was once a very sought after lady, but she has refused any proposals. An unfortunate incident with a man she really loved has turned her from the marriage mart. She does not feel it is for her. The only other man that she would consider, will not consider her. Damien Beecham, Viscount Quint is a friend of sorts to Lady Sophia. Unknown to him, she is responsible for saving his life after a bullet wound and his own stubbornness nearly kills him. Sophia comes and goes as she pleases most of the time. He is adamant at first that she not come back, but he can never be parted from her for long, he worries about her too much when she does not come around. Quint has his own issues to deal with! He believes he is losing touch with reality, just as his father did before his death. He has panic attacks if he tries to leave his house so he has become a recluse. Sophia shares her secret with him that she has been investigating the disappearance of women in the brothels and she has been doing so as a Sir Stephen! Quint is beside himself with fear for her. He knows that there are people who are rightless when it comes to their "business" and will not look too kindly on "Sir Stephen" poking his nose into their affairs. He must protect her! But he can not get too close. She is the only woman he would ever consider to be his wife, but he is now losing his mind. He would not want to see her go through what his own mother survived with his father. He must put his feelings aside. This novel is really a fun read. There are dark parts, as we see the fear of insanity in Quint and the fear for the unfortunate, missing woman that motivates Sophia. The household staff provides amusement for sure! They are loyal shines throughout the story!. The other players in the book are very complex characters and very well written. The scenery description is wonderful as well. A very well thought out story! I will definitely be looking for the next book! *I received and advanced copy of this title for my honest review.*

    Another great addition to the series!

    Another great addition to the series! Both Quint and Sophie defy the roles expected of them in society and are perfect for each other. Past mistakes have kept them apart for years, but as they help each other out with their problems, the attraction and feelings come back with a vengeance. For as smart as Quint is, he really had a hard time seeing what was right in front of him in regards to Sophie, the mystery she is trying to solve and his illness. It was great catching up a bit with the couples from the first two books. Highly recommended to historical romance fans, can be read as a standalone, but I loved the first two books and recommend you read those as well. 4.5 stars ARC via NetGalley

    Love strong female characters.

    I have had the privilege of reading Joanna Shupe's first two books within the Wicked Deceptions series The Courtesan Duchess and The Harlot Countess. The Lady Hellion is book 3 in the series. Each and every heroine from this series is capable of looking after herself and is not afraid to stand up for herself. Ms. Shupe is consistent in writing strong-minded, take charge women leads for this series. However she does so in such a way that you not only see the touch side but their vulnerabilities as well. She also manages to create the perfect hero to balance the heroine out. I love strong and assertive female characters am grateful that this series has plenty to chose from. Have been enjoying reading these books and anticipating the next one. I received this story for an honest review.
