The League of Second Sons
A secret society of younger sons, sworn to aid and abet each other, no matter the scandal or cost.... Their fathers and brothers may rule the world, but they run it . . . and when it comes to passion, they refuse to accept second best.
Roland Devere, younger son of an earl, has never seen a bet he wouldn't take or a risk that wasn't worth the thrill. But a life of careless hedonism is about to catch up with him . . . hard and fast, and all over one tiny bet concerning who can bed the current scandal of the year.
Lady Olivia Carlow made a grand alliance according to her father's wishes but her husband turned out to already have a wife in Scotland. And now society, at the least the male half, has declared it open season on fallen, not-quite widows.
When Livy receives a letter propositioning her in no uncertain terms, she decides to turn the offer to good use. She's going to make Roland suffer. She's going to use their "engagement" to keep the rest of London's rakes at bay. And she's going to enjoy every minute of it!
