Persuading Patience
Rogues & Gentlemen, Book 8

A shy, serious lord
Lord Percy Nibley needs a wife, preferably before his mother's nagging on the subject drives him to distraction. But being more comfortable with his rock collection than flirting, he's not having a lot of luck.

In desperation, the shy nobleman enlists the help of Baron Marchmain - Lord August Bright. August is nothing short of dazzling. Charming, witty and amusing, he's the darling of the ton, and a notorious heart-breaker.

????? Fun! - Once again, Emma Leech has written an enchanting, hilarious story that keeps you intrigued throughout the book. Full of drama, laughter, romance and a perfect ending. Amazon Customer

A woman with a mind of her own
August selects a suitable young lady for Lord Nibley; Miss Patience Pearson, a cool, level-headed woman, close to being on the shelf and with the reputation of a blue-stocking, meanwhile setting his own sights on capturing the heart of her vivacious younger sister, Caroline. But Patience is not easily charmed, guarding her sister with the tenacity of a lioness and August must be at his most devastatingly charming to get past her defences.

Having finally done so, however... August isn't at all sure he's chosen the right sister.

?????Settle back for another great read from Ms Leech!I loved this book. It went in a direction that I didn't expect! I could totally relate to Patience! Tall, not particularly pretty, outspoken, opinated! Loyal to her family! Emma V Leech knocks this out the park. Persuading Patience has become one of my favs in the series Rogues and Gentlemen. I highly recommend this book.Amazon Customer

**** Warning: This book contains a careful selection of quiet determination, resolute tight-lipped-ness and (almost) insurmountable levels of tension. Although coupled with the presence of occasionally descriptive sexual encounters, we are very pleased to highlight that this book - and series - is in no way verging on erotica. ****
