To restore family honor the Marquess of Rotherstone faces his most dangerous mission--finding the perfect bride . . .
To London's aristocracy, the Inferno Club is a scandalous society of men no proper young lady would acknowledge. But though they are publicly notorious for pursuing all manner of debauchery, in private they are warriors who would do anything to protect king and country.
The Marquess of Rotherstone has decided it's time to restore the family's good name. But as a member of the Inferno Club, he knows there is only one way to redeem himself in Society's eyes: marry a lady of impeccable beauty and breeding, whose reputation is, above all, spotless.
Someone quite unlike Daphne Starling. True, she's temptingly lovely, but a jilted suitor has nearly ruined her reputation. Still, Max cannot resist her allure--or the challenge of proving London's gossips wrong. He would do anything to win her hand . . . and show that even a wicked marquess can make a perfect husband.

I liked the hero and heroine, and enjoyed their interactions, even though Daphne was somewhat erratic. But unfortunately their romance was set in a plot of by two warring military/religious organizations, each seeking annihilation of the other and world dominance. It was incredibly stupid and pointless, and almost completely overshadowed the romance. I like reading suspense and thrillers, but this was more like some paranoid conspiracy theorist gone wild. I have thoroughly enjoyed Foley's previous books, and am annoyed that there was nothing about the book's cover or description to indicate that she went so far off track in this new series! Here's hoping she finds her way back.
