Finished reading: Between the Devil and Desire by Lorraine Heath --

This is actually Book 2 of the Scoundrels of St. James Quartet -- but I read the first and last book first before getting to the middle ones.

This is the story of Jack Dodger and Olivia, the Duchess of Lovingdon.

The two are brought together during the reading of Olivia's late husband's will -- and are forced to deal with each other because of the late duke's conditions.

Jack's a scoundrel -- and he knows it and doesn't apologize for it.  He's a scoundrel with a heart -- a really big one.  And it is this big heart of his that compels him to accept the terms of the late duke's will.

Olivia resists the change in her life and tries her best to put distance between her and her son and Jack -- but the more she resists, the more she realizes that there is more to Jack than meets the eye.

I love how Jack handles Henry, Olivia's son -- it's very no-nonsense -- I am curious about how Henry will turn out when he is older, with Jack as his guardian.

In the end, when the last part of the will is revealed, it resolves a lot of the mystery surrounding Jack --

It's a wonderful read. ^_^
