From theaNew York Timesabestselling Madeline Hunter comes this first in a stunning new trilogy about three irresistibly attractive brothers. aThis is the story of the bastard brother . . . For fans of Mary Balogh and Amanda Quick. Gareth Fitzallen is celebrated for four things- his handsome face, his notable charm, his aristocratic connections, and an ability to give the kind of pleasure that has women begging for more. Normally he bestows his talents on experienced, worldly women. But when he heads to Langdon's End to restore a property he inherited-and to investigate a massive art theft-he lays plans to seduce a most unlikely lady. Eva Russell lives a spinster's life of precarious finances and limited dreams while clinging to her family's old gentry status. She supports herself by copying paintings while she plots to marry her lovely sister to a well-established man. Everyone warns her of Gareth's reputation, and advises her to lock her sister away. Only it is not her sister Gareth desires. One look, and she knows he is trouble. One kiss, however, proves she is no match for this master of seduction.a Praise foraHis Wicked Reputation 'Hunter . . . spins the intrigues of an enterprising bastard son and a resourceful artist to delightful effect in this excellent launch of the Wicked series of Regency romances.
