Publisher's Summary

The cure for a willful wife....

Drusilla Clare is full of opinions about why a woman shouldn't marry. But that doesn't stop the rush of desire she feels each time her best friend's brother, notorious rake Gabriel Marlington, crosses her path. So imagine her dismay when she finds herself in the clutches of a scoundrel, only to be rescued by Gabriel himself. And when Gabriel's heartless - and heart-pounding - proposal comes, it's enough to make Dru's formidable resolve crumble... 

...is a smitten husband.

She's sharp-tongued, exasperating - and due to one careless moment - about to become his wife. Still, something about Drusilla has Gabriel intrigued. First there's the delicious flush of her skin every time she delivers a barb - and then the surprisingly sensual feel of her in his arms. Gabriel even finds himself challenged by her unusual philosophies. And when he discovers a clandestine rival for Dru's affection, his temperature flares even hotter. But the real threat to their happiness is one neither of the newlyweds sees coming. If they're to save their future - and their very lives - they'll need to trust in each other and their growing love.

Contains mature themes.

Notorious by Minerva Spencer

Notorious by Minerva Spencer
1st in the Rebels of the Ton series. Historical romance. May be a spin-off of a different series.
Drusilla Clara thinks of herself as an independent woman and has no intention of marrying. But society demands and a compromising situation has her getting married to rake Gabriel Marlington. The two must reconcile their differing life styles and beliefs to have a happy and successful marriage union.

I hate when issues could simply be resolved if the hero and heroine just talked to each other. Most of this book had them at odds and taking to someone other than the spouse. I also had a problem with the double standards but realize it may have been historically accurate which is sad. Old fashioned but explicit sex scenes including the “Little death”.
Cliffhanger situation although the couple has mainly resolved their differences.

The audio version was what saved this book for me. It was well done with emotions well performed as well as variations on voices.

slow start, great finish

slow start, great finish, can't wait to read more in the series. Heather Wilds is a great narrator.

Disappointing

This author is one of my go to authors and I loved her Outcast series and Victorian Decadence series. I was therefore disappointed by this book, which is a spin off from #1 of The Outcast series.

I loved Gabriel Marlington who has developed into a gorgeous hero and i could completely understand his frustration with Drusilla.

I got very irritated with Drusilla who appeared to be sensible but acted in an outrageous fashion countless occasions. I also didn't understand why more was not made of her charitable deeds and we were left hanging on various plot lines.

I did, however, enjoy watching their love eventually (and it did drone on far too long) blossom. This author does, however, write the most wonderfully scorching sexy romps, so for those prudes out there, take care.

Although, I didn't particularly like this book, I will persevere as I want to see what happens to the other characters.

The narrator is excellent!
