“If you want something well written, enjoyable, but untaxing then I would give this series a go.” ~ Under the Covers

The widowed Duchess of Ormond, Perdita has a secret reagrding her late husbands death. A secret that has threatened her friends life and now the danger to her own life is escalating, someone knows that her brutish husbands death was more complex than just an accident and they won’t their revenge on Perdita. However, Lord Archer Lisle is determined to keep Perdita safe and discover who the mastermind behind all the threats and plots against Perdita and her friends is.Archer has been in love with Perdita for years and will do anything to keep her safe and convince her he is the right husband for her, despite her disastrous and tragic first marriage.

This is the last book in the Wicked Widows series where we can finally see who is behind the nefarious plots to kill Perdita and her friends and see Archer and Perdita, at last, admit their love for one another and have wild monkey sex, or at least a bit of a snog.

I got all of my above wishes granted in Why Lords Lose Their Hearts, and one of my favourite things about the book, and the series, was that I didn’t guess who was behind everything, which meant I was intrigued right to the very moment of revelation. The romance, between Archer and Perdita was sweet, especially as you could see it grow through the previous books and I am pleased that they finally got the HEA they deserved, which although may not have involved wild monkey sex, it was still pretty steamy.

I have enjoyed this series, although it will never be my favourite and I doubt I would ever reread it, I have enjoyed each one of them and each one has been a pleasant experience; however, Manda Collins is yet to really rock my world. But if you want something well written, enjoyable, but untaxing then I would give this series a go.

About Manda Collins

Manda Collins spent her teen years wishing she’d been born a couple of centuries earlier, preferably in the English countryside. Time travel being what it is, she resigned herself to life with electricity and indoor plumbing, and read lots of books. An affinity for books led to a graduate degree in English, followed by another in Librarianship. By day, she works as an academic librarian at a small liberal arts college, where she teaches college students how to navigate the tangled world of academic research. A native of coastal Alabama, Manda lives in the house her mother grew up in with two cats, sometimes a dog, sometimes her sister, and always lots of books.

I have been waiting for the 3rd book to come out to read them all at once. How to Dance With a Duke from her first series was excellent. I still need to read the other 2 books from that one – the TBR stack! Thanks for the review. PS I love the color on the cover art!
