Lily Somerset’s plan for the London season is simple: courtship, marriage to a respectable gentleman, then the comfortable existence of a proper Lady. That is, until one tiny misstep leaves Lily on the edge of social ruin, forcing her to depend on a wicked rogue to save her reputation.
Robyn Sutherland doesn’t save reputations—he sullies them. He'd rather be drawn and quartered than find himself spending the season as Lily's escort. But he has no choice but to stay until her tattered standing is mended.
What begins as a ruse to deceive London soon flames into an uncontrollable passion. Robyn calls to the wild spirit that lurks beneath Lily’s prim exterior, and Lily awakens the hero’s heart within Robyn. But can these unlikely lovers trust themselves enough to let desire overrule reason?
I really loved A Season of Ruin even with a hero with the name Robyn. For some reason I couldn't really get past the name.
I know guys have names like Robyn but I kept thinking chick not dude. Which was odd. Still even with our little miss innocent and mister douche somehow the jerk in him cared for the sweet in her and the mix worked.
More character driven than plot driven opposites attract pull you in even with the amount of situations that call for not liking Robyn and getting annoyed with Lily but of course bad boys bring in all the soft hearts.
In the end I wound up really liking A Season of Ruin because both Robyn and Lily won me over at the end. Character redemption wins another fan.
