A Deception Most Reckless
Lady Daphne Bevington would do anything for her maid Kate-including masquerading as Kate and sneaking around the wrong side of London to settle the poor girl's debt. Yet her innocent ruse takes a scandalous turn when "Kate" runs into a handsome gentleman on a secret quest of his own. A moment of passion could cost Daphne her reputation, but how can she ignore the stranger's searing kiss?

An Arrangement Most Wicked

Lord Cormack Northmore is determined to find the immoral peer who ruined his sister. So when he learns that the irresistible woman he knows as "Kate" is the Season's most sought-after debutante, Cormack plans to use her connections to help him set a trap. Now, the closer Cormack gets to uncovering the villain who haunts the ton's ballrooms, the more he realizes that the lovely lady is in danger herself. Will he abandon his quest for revenge-or risk losing his one chance at love?

My Thoughts:

There's so much to this story that had me anxiously turning the page. Oh, Daphne, you little troublemaker, you. Between her and swooning over Lord Cormack on more than one occasion it was a sweet little journey.

Now, I love me a good first kiss, and a good buildup to a first kiss. This one had a great one between Cormack and Daphne while she was pretending to be Kate.
His lips made her think of kissing, rather desperately, even though of course, she didn't want to kiss him. Not a stranger. Because that would be wrong. And impetuous! And not just a little unseemly.
I don't care how unseemly it is, Daphne... *giggles* It all just amuses me so. Their romance continued once he discovered who she really is. Well, after he got over his anger toward her for deceiving him. And it was lovely.

Never Entice an Earl had me reading and reading and reading. Loved Cormack and Daphne together, just plain together. I could definitely dive into another one of Lily Dalton's books without hesitation. The romance, the deception... it all added up to a great book.
