For too long Miss Emily Parr has been subject to the whims of her indebted uncle and the lecherous advances of his repulsive business partner. Her plan to be done with dominating men forever is simple: find herself a kind husband who will leave her to her books. It seems an easy enough plan, until she is unexpectedly abducted by an incorrigible duke who hides a wounded spirit behind flashing green eyes. Godric St. Laurent, Duke of Essex, spends countless nights at the club with his four best friends and relishes the rakish reputation society has branded him with.
He has no plans to marry anytime soon - if ever. But when he kidnaps an embezzler's niece, the difficult debutante's blend of sweetness and sharp tongue makes him desperate for the one thing he swears he never wanted: love. Yet as they surrender to passion, danger lurks in Godric's shadowed past, waiting for him to drop his guard - and to rob him of the woman he can't live without.

Godric kidnaps Emily because her uncle and guardian has defaulted on a debt. Godric and his four friends (the 'League of Rogues') take her from a diverted hackney carriage, drug her, feel her up, drug her again, and then she's installed in the room next to his at his mansion.
Of course Emily is feisty, intelligent, brave, speaks five languages and is brilliant at everything, and all of the rogues adore her, and she begins to thaw their cold and stony hearts, Godric's especially. Good for her...what do you mean, I'm being sarcastic?
For once, the happy ever after ruined this book for me. The heavy overtones of rape fantasy, Stockholm syndrome and women-don't-know-their-own-minds which define this book range from unsettling to revolting. Considering Emily is a paragon in all ways (see above), she should have kicked poor, broken Godric in the nuts and left him at any opportunity. However, she's so brainwashed that she even lets him anger-screw her up against a door without protest (just as well, he was so angry he'd forbidden her to speak at that point) and it was beyond her wildest dreams...
The one star is for good no typos, and because I'm not allowed to score zero. This book is chauvinistic beyond description, peopled with Manly Men and Strong Women Who Just Need a Manly Man, and a plot so overdone it's long past Gothic.
Emily a very sweet, innocent girl and Godric, is an absolute Rogue, he was never loved after his mother died and treats all women badly with no exception. These are the main characters in this story, the League kidnap Emily because her uncle owes Godric money. And that's when it all begins, everything you want in a story is in this I could not put it down, I laughed and cried, I need to buy second book in series now. A MUST READ
I know the top echelons of society in the early 19th century could do more or less as they pleased, but that is no reason for a modern writer to portray it as a love story.
I just hope nobody as young and naïve as the heroine reads this and thinks it "romantic"
