I'd been looking forward to this conclusion to the Rules of Scoundrels series, especially since the author shifted the rules a bit and made this scoundrel a lady. Georgiana, who has not one but two alternate identities, makes for an interesting character and she is evenly matched with a newspaper magnate seeking to uncover her secrets. Overall, this made for a fun, quick read, and it was exactly what I needed to read this week. ( )

I liked this conclusion to the series the most of all the books in it, I think. Super quick reads, all of them, and likable, witty characters. I don't love them quite as much as Gail Carriger's more progressive/modern-ish Parasol Protectorate books, but they're fun. ( )

They've known each other for years; or, she's known him for years and he's known one of her three personalities. Yet, they seem to know very little about one another for all that. I guess their conversations revolved around sharing others' secrets for mutual gain and didn't involve anything personal? I would have liked to know more about their previous interactions as Duncan/Anna, to better understand what sort of relationship they had already established.

The conflict in this one was decent at first. I felt like Anna/Georgiana/Chase had legitimate reasons to avoid telling Duncan her secrets . . . for a while. By the night of the tryst, however, her reasons for not at least divulging some of her secrets to him were contrived. And her obsession with a title to protect her daughter made no sense to me. She wielded it like a weapon to pummel Duncan--you can't give me a title!--but I could not understand how a viscount would have protected her daughter. The title would not have conferred to Caroline; given she was an illegitimate child from a prior relationship, I don't (correct me if I'm wrong) even think she'd be entitled to "Lady." How was the title then so important? It made Georgiana unlikeable that she was so obsessed with the title and then that she repeatedly bludgeoned Duncan with it.

Duncan's reasons for keeping his secrets, on the other hand, were a bit questionable. He committed a theft 17-years-ago. There is no way that could be proven--there's not going to be a paper record of the sale of the stolen item or proof that it was he who took it all those years later. That he thinks he could hang for it makes very little sense; maybe, maybe because the villain holding his secrets over his head is an earl and he is untitled? But, it's thin, at best. And protecting the sister is a good reason for secrecy, but her true identity also could not be proven. We're left with no good reason why he couldn't tell Georgiana the truth, except perhaps shame? Perhaps both Duncan and Georgiana are just two people who have become too good at keeping secrets.

I was disappointed with the villain in this story. I'm tired of villains that are so evil, raised in evil households, perpetuating evil into eternity. It doesn't need to be so dire to give someone reason to flee and start a new life, nor for the villain to be unscrupulous to hold a secret over someone's head for years. The villain appears midway through the story, never gets fully developed as a character, and is then exited tidily. It's a romance novel, but characters outside of the hero/heroine can still have vital roles, can they not?

I'm glad the other partners in the Fallen Angel finally got to interfere in Chase's life, as she's been interfering in theirs for so long. Personally, I think they should have outright told Duncan who she was, instead of letting her keep the secret for so long. It's likely what she would have done in the same situation. Throughout their stories, she was constantly manipulating her partners' love lives and she deserved an even greater taste of her own medicine.

I loved Duncan's character. Like Temple before him, though, I rather wish he had been given a more likable heroine. I didn't hate Georgiana, but I wish she had gotten out of her head and placed at least the tiniest bit of trust in Duncan before the end of the book. It's hard for me to imagine how Duncan would have been able to forgive her and trust her, given how long she kept BIG secrets from him, and how thoroughly opposed to trusting him she was.

The final book in the series did not move me the same way the others did, but I still enjoyed the story. I do think a lot of complicated trouble could have been spared had people been honest or asked the opinion of the right person. Glad to see that everyone got their HEA. ( )
