In Tessa Dare’s dazzling new trilogy, the men of the Stud Club live and play by their own rules—until passion changes the game.
The bastard son of a nobleman, Julian Bellamy is now polished to perfection, enthralling the ton with wit and charm while clandestinely plotting to ruin the lords, ravish the ladies, and have the last laugh on a society that once spurned him. But after meeting Leo Chatwick, a decent man and founder of an elite gentlemen’s club, and Lily, Leo’s enchanting sister, Julian reconsiders his wild ways. And when Leo’s tragic murder demands that Julian hunt for justice, he vows to see the woman he secretly loves married to a man of her own class.
Lily, however, has a very different husband in mind. She’s loved Julian forever, adores the man beneath the rakish façade, and wants to savor the delicious attraction they share—as his wife. His insistence on marrying her off only reinforces her intent to prove that he is the only man for her. Obsessed with catching a killer, Julian sinks back to the gutters of his youth, forcing Lily to reach out with a sweet, reckless passion Julian can’t resist. Can her desire for a scoundrel save them both—or will dangerous secrets threaten more than their tender love?

Tessa Dare a part-time librarian, full-time mommy, and swing-shift writer. She makes her home in Southern California, where she shares a cozy, cluttered bungalow with her husband, their two children, and a dog.From Booklist:
Julian Bellamy knew he was supposed to die that night instead of his friend Leo Chatwick. If Julian had gone with Leo instead of staying home with his latest paramour, it would have been his beaten and bloody body they found. Lily Chatwick knows Julian blames himself for her brother’s death, even if she doesn’t. That is the only reason Julian drives himself to the point of exhaustion in his search of Leo’s killers. Lily has lost her brother, and now she risks losing her best friend, too, if she doesn’t act quickly. To distract Julian from his death-wish plans for revenge, Lily agrees to entertain the idea of marriage, but only if Julian will accompany her to three different society events. With its brilliantly nuanced characters, richly sensual romance, and stylish, witty writing, Three Nights with a Scoundrel follows One Dance with a Duke (2010) and Twice Tempted by a Rogue (2010) to bring Dare’s latest Regency-set trilogy to a splendidly satisfying conclusion. --John Charles
