Wicked Designs By: Lauren Smith
"Fans of Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton Series and Johanna Lindsey’s Malory Series will love the passionate romances and gripping adventures of the League of Rogues.
The League of Rogues takes what they want—but have they taken on too much?
For too long Miss Emily Parr has been subject to the whims of her indebted uncle and the lecherous advances of his repulsive business partner. Her plan to be done with dominating men forever is simple—find herself a kind husband who will leave her to her books.
It seems an easy enough plan, until she is unexpectedly abducted by an incorrigible duke who hides a wounded spirit behind flashing green eyes.
Godric St. Laurent, Duke of Essex, spends countless nights at the club with his four best friends, and relishes the rakish reputation society has branded him with. He has no plans to marry anytime soon—if ever. But when he kidnaps an embezzler’s niece, the difficult debutante’s blend of sweetness and sharp tongue make him desperate for the one thing he swears he never wanted: love.
Yet as they surrender to passion, danger lurks in Godric’s shadowed past, waiting for him to drop his guard—and rob him of the woman he can’t live without.
Warning: This novel includes a lady who refuses to stay kidnapped, a devilish duke with a dark past, and an assortment of charming rogues who have no idea what they’ve gotten themselves into.
*Includes Exclusive Illustrated Scenes throughout the book!

What a very entertaining read that will definitely keep you turning the pages to see what was coming next. I found the read had 'great dialogue with humorous banter[that will have you laughing out loud], adventure and yes...love.' Be ready for many twist and turns with surprises taking the reader on quite a rogue ride of 'romance, passion, mystery, murder, adventure and intrigue.' This was one of those reads that the reader will love all the characters...even some of the villains. So, if you are looking for a entrancing novel from beginning to the end "Wicked Designs" will give it all to you.
Thank you to the author for the gift of your novel for my giving my honest opinion of the read.
