THE TRUTH COULD RUIN HERIn Manda Collins's Why Lords Lose Their Hearts, Perdita, the widowed Duchess of Ormonde, keeps a dangerous secret—the truth of how her brutish husband died. But a mysterious avenger seems to know it, too, and when anonymous threats turn into public attacks, theres only one friend she can turn to for help—her husbands former secretary, Lord Archer Lisle. The man who witnessed her every heartache. The kind of man whose love she can only dream of …WILL HIS LOVE SAVE HER?The youngest of the Duke of Pembertons five sons, Lord Archer Lisle is used to waiting his turn. For years, he could only stand by, seething, as Perdita suffered at the hands of her husband, but now shes under threat from another source—one who will stop at nothing to make her pay for the late dukes death. But the good-natured Archer can be dangerous when crossed—and hell do anything to keep the woman hes adored for so long safe in his arms…  "Absolutely delightful…an emotion-packed, passionate historical romance"—Romance Junkies, 5 stars (on How to Romance a Rake)

      

Review:

"Collins's third Wicked Widows Regency (after Why Earls Fall in Love) follows a young widow and her new lover as they embark on romance while dodging danger and uncovering secrets. Perdita, Duchess of Ormond, endured years of abuse at the hands of her husband before enlisting friends to help her escape. A confrontation ended with the duke's death: he fell on the knife he was using to threaten her. Determined never to be controlled by a man again, Perdita has no desire to remarry. But when an unknown stalker accuses her of murdering the duke, she believes she needs a husband for protection. Lord Archer Lisle, the duke's secretary, is determined to protect Perdita at all costs, even if she is only interested in taking him as a lover. This sweet and sensuous novel has an undercurrent of mystery that will keep readers riveted. Agent: Holly Root, Waxman Leavell Literary Agency. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
