I have received a free e-copy of the book Baron of Clubs by Tammy Andresen to review.

Baron of Clubs by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

Mysterious and larger than life, this baron might not have been the best choice for elopement…

Lady Elizabeth Stanton needed to wed quickly in order to save her brother but running away with a rakehell of a baron…. Cryptically quiet, the Baron of Clubs is the definition of the strong and silent sort of fellow. As frightening as he is handsome, he steals her breath with every penetrating glance from his hazel gaze.

There’s no turning back, however, once she leaves London with her new fiancé. Besides, he’s already protected her once, even she can attest to that. But as she leaves the security of her family and heads off on a larger-than-life adventure with a complete stranger, she has to wonder if this mad journey to Scotland was the largest mistake of her life or her first step toward becoming a woman all her own.

And as her fear heats into passion, she must also wonder about the man who’s swept into her life, carried her off from her home, and rewritten her entire world. Because, if she’s not careful, he might just steal her heart too.

We’re now upto book 19 in the Lords of Scandal series and the covers are continuing to get even more risque. I always read the kindle version so not an issue for me, but I have to say I don’t think I would sit on a train holding this one as a paperback. However the storyline is good and just like all the others, it works perfectly as a stand-alone read too.

The story starts by re-enacting a scene from the previous book, Queen of Hearts when Bella overpowered an intruder in her home, but this time from Lizzie’s viewpoint. Lizzie, Lady Elizabeth Stanton is the sister of Edge, hero of the last book and she is scared. But her brother and Clubs, Baron Purewater have just arrived. The Baron gives Lizzie his card, saying if anyone attacks again or she needs anything, he will help her.

So Lizzie comes up with a mad self-sacrificing plan to ask Clubs to elope, so that her brother wouldn’t have to marry for money in order to fund a dowry for Lizzie, but instead he could marry for love.

When she knocks on his door after midnight, what will Colton, the Baron of Clubs say to her proposal? She is dumb-founded by the immediate answer of yes and within an hour, is heading from London to Gretna Green in a carriage with the Baron, a total stranger. Has she made a big mistake? And what will Edge do, when he finds his sister gone?

Baron of Clubs is available on Amazon in both Kindle format and paperback. Another nice short light romantic story from Tammy Andresen.
