Taming His Hellion Countess (Lustful Lords #2) by Sorcha Mowbray
A duty bound earl and a jewel thief might find forever if he can steal her heart…
Robert Cooper, the Earl of Brougham must marry in order to fulfill his duty to the title. He’s decided on a rather mild mannered, biddable woman who most considered firmly on the shelf. But, her family is on solid financial ground and has no scandals attached to their name.
Lady Emily Winterburn, sister of the Earl of Dunmere, is not what she seems. With a heart as big as her wild streak she finds herself prepared to protect her brother from his bad choices, even if it means stealing from the Ton. But marrying their way out of trouble is simply out of the question. What woman in her right mind would shackle herself to a man, let alone one of the notorious Lustful Lords?
Cooper’s carefully laid plans are ruined once he must decide between courting his unwilling bride-to-be and taming the wild woman he caught stealing–until he discovers they are one and the same. And when love sinks it’s relentless talons into his heart? He’ll do anything to possess the wanton who fires his blood and touches his soul.

The second book in Ms. Mowbray’s Lustful Lords series once again gives us erotic romance in a historical (Victorian) setting, and OMG, have a fan handy for the many, many steamy scenes between Cooper and Emily! The jewel thief/wallflower who Cooper has inadvertently selected for his “safe” society wife completely throws a wrench into his future plans when he learns what she really does at the many society balls she attends. Of course, by that time he’s already in too deep and there’s pretty much only one outcome for him–to fall in love with his future wife.
Though it was obvious that both Emily and Cooper had major trust issues to deal with before they could truly have the kind of relationship they soon decided they wanted, it did seem as if they spent a bit too much time covering the same “I’m not sure I can trust you” ground together. I spent a lot of time urging the two of them to just talk to each other, already! Emily’s brother’s gambling “cure” also seemed to be awfully quick and painless–I’m hoping he’ll get a book of his own at some point so we can see the actual struggle he must have gone through in order for things to have gotten so bad in the first place, and how difficult turning things around was for him. He’s not my favorite character, but I am interested to see how Ms. Mowbray could go about turning him into a hero.
Taming His Hellion Countess works as a standalone, if you haven’t yet read the first book in the series ( His Hand-Me-Down Countess ) you should do just fine–if you have, though, Stone and Theo play a fun role here and it was fun to see them again, now settled and comfortable in their relationship.
Rating: 4 stars / B+

Sorcha Mowbray is a mild mannered office worker by day…okay, so she is actually a mouthy, opinionated, take charge kind of gal who bosses everyone around; but she definitely works in an office. At night she writes romance so hot she sets the sheets on fire! Just ask her slightly singed husband.
She is a longtime lover of historical romance, having grown up reading Johanna Lindsey and Judith McNaught. Then she discovered Thea Devine and Susan Johnson. Holy cow! Heroes and heroines could do THAT? From there, things devolved into trying her hand at writing a little smexy. Needless to say, she liked it and she hopes you do too!
