New York Times Bestselling Author Sarah MacLean returns with the next book in the Bareknuckle Bastards series about three brothers bound by a secret that they cannot escape—and the women who bring them to their knees. The Lady’s Plan When Lady Henrietta Sedley declares her twenty-ninth year her own, she has plans to inherit her father’s business, to make her own fortune, and to live her own life. But first, she intends to experience a taste of the pleasure she’ll forgo as a confirmed spinster. Everything is going perfectly…until she discovers the most beautiful man she’s ever seen tied up in her carriage and threatening to ruin the Year of Hattie before it’s even begun. The Bastard’s Proposal When he wakes in a carriage at Hattie’s feet, Whit, a king of Covent Garden known to all the world as Beast, can’t help but wonder about the strange woman who frees him—especially when he discovers she’s headed for a night of pleasure . . . on his turf. He is more than happy to offer Hattie all she desires…for a price. An Unexpected Passion Soon, Hattie and Whit find themselves rivals in business and pleasure. She won’t give up her plans; he won’t give up his power . . . and neither of them sees that if they’re not careful, they’ll have no choice but to give up everything . . . including their hearts.

I enjoyed the story however it was a little cheesy when he referred to her as his Warrior. I like reading about the Rookery in England and the life of the poor and in this particular case how he worked his way from rags to riches. made a suggestion to the library to purchase the third book in this series of the bare-knuckle bastards.

I loved Whit (Beast) and didn't dislike Hattie, but I enjoyed the secondary females in this story much more. Whit and Hattie's best friend, Nora, stole the show. There were also some witty moments in the book that helped keep my interest. In the end, it was entertaining, but didn't stand out from the rest and probably won't be as memorable. A high point was the ending and set up for the third book. Here's hoping for a fabulous redemption story in the third (and possibly final) Bareknuckle Bastards story.

This book is a treasure! I really loved all the characters, but I especially loved Hattie! She is strong and so determined to prove that she is worth getting what she wants even though she's a woman; in a time when women weren't allowed to do anything. I also liked that Whit supports her dream and her goals, but that Hattie doesn't wait around for them to be handed to her. This is a great edition to The Bareknuckle Bastards series; and in my personal opinion better than Wicked and the Wallflower! and now we wait eagerly for Daring and the Duke to come out!

Great romcom and I do like these Bareknuckle Bastards - not just the toffs getting hitched. I have reservations about where the next one is heading, but it will be interesting, no doubt. I also believe there's some winks at her other books but it's been a while...
