REVIEW: THE DANGER IN DARING A LADY (THE NAUGHTY GIRLS) BY EMMA LOCKE
The Danger in Daring a Lady by Emma Locke
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
YES! YES! YES! Finally a woman who can go toe to toe with an overwhelmingly arrogant male. Emma Locke, I am loving it. Darius is rich, titled and full of himself but one meeting with a beautiful woman cuts him down to size. Caitlin is smart, beautiful and doesn't suffer fools. My best way of describing her is a newly discovered gem, she's rough around the edges but buried inside is the makings of a beautiful treasure. Her interactions with Darius are pure gold. She doesn't not hesitate to speak her mind but can't help have mixed feelings where he is concerned. I received an ARC of The Danger in Daring a Lady by Emma Locke in exchange for an honest review. I was already enjoying the Naughty Girls series but after reading Darius and Caitlin's story, I am not ashamed to admit that I am head over heels for these characters. My favorite book in the series.

NOW SHE HAS FARTHER TO FALL
After a decade of proving he is nothing like his profligate father, Ash is horrified to have given his heart to a Cyprian.

He needs Celeste. When he takes her as his mistress, he’s still not satisfied, and the many late nights in her arms only make him want more…
THE PROBLEM WITH SEDUCTION (THE NAUGHTY GIRLS) BY EMMA LOCKE
AN OUTRAGEOUS PROPOSITION

Lord Constantine Alexander can't afford another trip to debtors' prison, which makes him the perfect candidate. She doesn't expect him to have a heart of gold, or to hold up his end of the bargain—particularly when his high-in-the-instep family gets involved. Nor does she expect to find him irresistible, because while she needs a man, she doesn't particularly want one.
A WICKED BARGAIN
When a beautiful courtesan offers to satisfy his creditors, Con leaps at the opportunity. Never mind his mother and brothers are suspicious of his newfound fortune—being with Elizabeth is intoxicating enough to wipe any thought of scruples away. He soon realizes it's not just his future he's been gambling, but his future family. How can he convince London's premier courtesan he's more than a callow rake?
