The Maddening Lord Montwood
The Rakes of Fallow Hall # 3
By: Vivienne Lorret
Releasing July 14, 2015
Avon Impulse



Frances Thorne learned at an early age to rely on herself. Yet, losing her job and her home and watching her father carted off to debtor’s prison all in one day, is too much for her to bear alone. When a generous offer of assistance falls into her lap, she ignores her better instincts and decides to take a chance. The last thing she needs is for the infuriating Lord Lucan Montwood to stand in her way.

The end of the bachelors’ wager is near, and Lucan Montwood can taste victory. Yet, on the precipice of finally gaining freedom from his debts, he’s incensed to learn that the beautiful Frances Thorne has fallen into an insidious trap in the guise of a new position. Lucan can’t deny the way her lips call to him and knows he must risk his own future to ensure her safety.

Convincing her to trust him is the hard part and resisting her is next to impossible. But falling in love with her? That’s far too simple.




Vivienne Lorret has completely blown me away with this series so far, so the Maddening of Lord Montwood had A LOT to live up too…
Everything in Frances life was taken away in one go! No job, no home and her Father (Hugh Thorne) was taken off to debtor’s prison. Add to that the betrayal of the men in her life; it is understandable that she is unwilling to trust Lucan Montwood! Despite the fact that she has known him since childhood, she doesn’t really know him at all! After all, who makes a 10,000 pound bet with their friends to stay single…but even knowing that and even when lies and scheming of another person, taints her opinion of Lucan…she still begins to care for him.
Lord Lucan Montwood has also lost everything that he cared about. His mother has been murdered and the murderer (Lucas Father) seems to have gotten away with it, by shifting the blame on to Hugh Thorne (Family Steward). Lucan makes it his mission to protect Hugh Thorne, with the aid of Viscount Whitelock. But nothing is as truly as it seems! And if that isn’t enough, He falls in love with Thorne’s daughter Frances, who only sees him as a rake.
But nothing is truly as it seems, and you are left wondering, who is good and who is bad and will love win in the end…
Wow! What a twist! What an ending! I can honestly say that this book is full of surprises, from the beginning to the end and it was such a joy to read and a wonderful end to such an amazing series.
Where it comes to the basics, Vivienne Lorret always knocks it out of the park. It was such a smooth and well developed read, which kept me gripped to the end.
I give The maddening of Lord Montwood and well deserved 10 out of 10!
