REVIEW: Why Lords Lose Their Hearts by Manda Collins

Book Blurb: The Truth Could Ruin Her

Perdita, the widowed Duchess of Ormonde, keeps a dangerous secret—the truth of how her brutish husband died. But a mysterious avenger seems to know it, too, and when anonymous threats turn into public attacks, there’s only one friend she can turn to for help—her husband’s former secretary, Lord Archer Lisle. The man who witnessed her every heartache. The kind of man whose love she can only dream of…

Will His Love Save Her?

The youngest of the Duke of Pemberton’s five sons, Lord Archer Lisle is used to waiting his turn. For years, he could only stand by, seething, as Perdita suffered at the hands of her husband, but now she’s under threat from another source—one who will stop at nothing to make her pay for the late Duke's death. But the good-natured Archer can be dangerous when crossed—and he’ll do anything to keep the woman he’s adored for so long safe in his arms…

My Review: Murder, incest, and plots oh my! When I picked this book up I did not know it was the third book in a series. But I don't think you really need to read the first two books in the trilogy to understand what's going on. I found the two couples from the first couple of books to be sort of boring and I have no desire to read their stories. Also you think you know how the Duke was killed but at the end you find out that that was wrong. And his killer is someone you wouldn't have expected. The villain in this whole trilogy was very mentally disturbed if she decided incest was an acceptable thing to do.

I really did enjoy this book and I did not see that ending coming. Now I need to pick up more of Manda Collins books in the future.

Rating: ★★★★☆
