"Running for her life, exhausted and out of options, Olivia Holladay wants nothing more than the chance to make a home for herself. So when she realizes that the infamous Duke of Marwick might hold the key to her freedom, she boldly disguises herself as the newest and bravest in a long line of the duke's notoriously temperamental housekeepers. Little does she know that the wickedly handsome Alastair de Grey has very different plans for her. As his new employee, Olivia is a fearless upstart. As a woman, the daring redhead is just what Alastair needs to rouse him from darkness to the siren call of revenge. He has suffered a betrayal so deep that he will use whatever means necessary to destroy his enemies--even his brazen and beautiful domestic. But his vengeful plan fails to account for his single weakness: an irresistible and growing passion for the enigmatic Olivia."--Back cover.

Excellent book, well-written, good pacing, no fluff, witty dialogue, steamy sex, smart character and plot development. Hit all the right notes for me (and I’m picky about my romance novels).

"Fool Me Twice" by Meredith Duran (April 2014)

Olivia had to move quickly 'again' when her landlady told her about a man looking for her. She knew it had to be Mr. Moore, Bertram's man. But why was he trying to kill her? Should she take flight to the continent? No she would fight. She had stolen the Duke of Marwick's wife's letters from Elizabeth de Grey. Elizabeth was the sister-in-law to the Duke of Marwick. The letters implicated that the Duchess had cuckolded her husband and gave information about the Duke's dealings to her lovers. One letter also said he had a dossier on all these men which could ruin them. One of the men was Bertram.
She had a friend write a great reference for her and set off to the Duke's residence to apply for a position as a maid and to find information she needed to stop Bertram from bothering her again.
The Duke of Marwick's wife had died about six months ago and the Duke had gone into seclusion because of grief and despair after finding out his wife had not been faithful or honest with him. In fact all her letters show that she hated him. How could he be so deceived in her.
Olivia was ushered into the house and the butler who was desperate, hired her as the housekeeper. The house and staff were in total disarray. The duke was unresponsive expect to throw an empty liquor bottle at her. She needed to get him out of his rooms so she could search for the papers.
Does Oliva have to save the Duke in order for her to save herself? Great fun!!! Happy Reading! Reading Genie

I don't always enjoy Meredith Duran but this one is excellent ... I couldn't put it down, finished it in 24 hours. The beginning was a bit confusing, but stick with it, it unfolds nicely. Well developed story & characterisation, humor, suspense, believable characters, great sex scenes. Two thumbs up!

Incredibly refreshing story that has nary a mention of balls/parks, clothing, hateful relatives or the Ton. The writing is humorous and heartfelt with a few oh-so beautiful moments. The star of the book is definitely the good-natured, stubbornly optimistic (but not annoyingly so) thief called Olivia. Her character reminded me of Jessica from The Lord of Scoundrels (so if you liked her you should definitely check this book out).
