As dutiful peers of the realm, however, they are expected to take wives - and marriage may prove their most perilous mission yet! For it takes a lady of uncommon spirit to love an especially dangerous hero. With the war against Napoleon winding down, the Marquess of Rotherstone decides it's time to restore his family's tainted reputation. But as a member of the Inferno Club, he knows there is only one way to redeem himself in society's eyes: marry an impeccable young lady of beauty and breeding, whose behavior is well beyond reproach.
Someone quite unlike Miss Daphne Starling. True, she is temptingly lovely, but a whiff of scandal suggests the blond beauty may be a jilt who enjoys toying with her suitors' emotions. Still, Max cannot resist her allure - or the challenge of proving London's gossips wrong. Pursuing her with a spy's cool, calm calculation, he is soon swept up in the chase. He would do anything to win her hand Buy Now with 1 Credit.
Rohan Kilburn, the Duke of Warrington, has quite a reputation. He's "The Beast" - a debauched rake whose many exploits echo in the countryside surrounding his ancient familial castle. In truth, he's devoted his life to the Inferno Club, swearing off love for duty in an attempt to thwart a tragic family curse. Beautiful spitfire Kate Madsen wants nothing to do with "The Beast" after she is mistakenly abducted by smugglers and delivered into his fearsome clutches.
In My Irresistible Earl , the third book in the series, Foley takes listeners once more through the doors of the scandalous society of London aristocrats who hide their dangerous missions behind rumors of debauchery. My Irresistible Earl reunites a once abandoned beauty with the secretive rogue she has never stopped loving - and when the sparks start to fly you'll understand why Julia Quinn calls Gaelen Foley's books, "always fabulous".
Sometimes a book goes temporarily out of print - and sometimes no audio version has ever been recorded.

Though not one of his Order duties, it sure came close enough for Trevor, as he had to fight kill and maim a few to save Grace and Brentford from the clutches of those men. And though he had his moments of doubt, knowing Grace might not forgive him for killing men in front of her, even in self-defense, Grace put his doubts to rest after it was all said and done.
Yah right! Thankfully, those scenes were very few so I persevered. For the next installment: 1. Since the storyline has completely veered away from the original Order-Promethean setting, now Nick has his own journey ahead of him. Nothing was really hinted about his fate, except for that one brief appearance, so expect anything. May 19, Tricia rated it it was amazing Shelves: cant-get-enough-of-gaelen-foley , dissapointed.
Gaelen Foley is one of my favorite authors and when I finished all her series Ascension, KM, Spice and Inferno club well I was more than just a little devastated. I tried to look for other novels to past the time, but you know hard it is to trust another author, there are just some stories with such promising plot but just get ruined by how it was written. So when Gaelen Foley is one of my favorite authors and when I finished all her series Ascension, KM, Spice and Inferno club well I was more than just a little devastated. So when I found out about My notorious gentleman, I was so ecstatic.
I just found this really predictable, Grace is the perfect reverend's daughter who can do no wrong to anybody ever, she has no faults at all pretty much no personality either , her hobbies consist of being kind to small children she sometimes cares for injured puppies as well , cooking for the poor and ill in the village and trying to redeem former courtesans by teaching them to read. Grace is naturally unaware how beautiful she really is. Every other women that we meet in this story is selfish I just found this really predictable, Grace is the perfect reverend's daughter who can do no wrong to anybody ever, she has no faults at all pretty much no personality either , her hobbies consist of being kind to small children she sometimes cares for injured puppies as well , cooking for the poor and ill in the village and trying to redeem former courtesans by teaching them to read.
Trevor is also a case of the typical wounded romantic hero, his time serving his county has scared his soul and he needs a caring woman to love him. To sum up neither of them has much personality and not much really happened. Oct 09, Caz rated it really liked it Shelves: aar , dead-tree , 4-andstar-books , romance-regency , romance This is the penultimate book in the series, so the war is over, and Trevor is struggling to adapt to civilian life. I liked that aspect of his character, and that Grace was able to see beneath the handsome, urbane surface to the man beneath who is unsure of his place in the world and who carries the weight of so many black deeds.
Naturally, such an exciting and attractive addition to local society excites the interest of the debutantes and their matchmaking mamas, the foremost of which are Lady Calpurnia Windlesham and her formidable mother. I enjoyed watching their friendship develop and blossom into more, and seeing Trevor find a new purpose in life as he came to realise that there was much he could do to help improve the lives of the local villagers.
The romance was gentle and I particularly liked the fact that Trevor was as smitten with Grace as she was with him, right from their first meeting. Another of the things I particularly liked about the novel was the portrait Ms Foley painted of the difficulties of rural life at the time, just after the Napoleonic wars. Not only was it a time of great hardship and scarcity because of the war, with many families devastated by the loss of fathers, sons and brothers, but in , freak weather conditions combined with a volcanic eruption in the Dutch East Indies modern-day Indonesia had a wide-reaching effect across Europe which meant that summer never arrived and the temperatures throughout the year were much colder than average.
As a result, harvests were poor or failed completely, only adding to the shortages that had already been occasioned by blockades and the other effects of war. Ms Foley incorporates this detail into her book to good effect, as Trevor comes to realise that by buying the Grange, he now has a responsibility to the local people, and he and Grace work together to try to make preparations to help the villagers to mitigate the likely effects of the poor harvests and the approaching winter.
I suppose this section was partly there to provide a bit of adventure and partly to remind us that for all his distaste for the things he was required to do during the war, Trevor is still capable of being a lean, mean killing machine who is prepared to get his hands dirty if he has to. My Notorious Gentleman was a gentle, undemanding read, and I enjoyed it enough to want to read some of the other books in the series. View all 6 comments.

This series, the Inferno Club, is not even close to the author's Knight Miscellany series in quality of its titles. This title was dull, dull, dull. One book of this series was dyn-o-mite, My Ruthless Prince. My Scandalous Viscount was ok. I will say that the subplot that continued from books books was awesome and culminated with a spectacular finish in My Ruthless Prince bk 4.
Book 5 was a sort of denouement for the subplot. I This series, the Inferno Club, is not even close to the author's Knight Miscellany series in quality of its titles. In the case of this series and her last, GF comes up with compelling subplots. I just didn't care about couples themselves and I see no reason to read the last title of the series.

Foley's books to me represent another almost gothic aspect of post regency England.. After the war has ended and just a bit past that.. So when she writes a story about romance and love and finding your place it is a wonderful respite from dark and dangerous ways..
Don't get me wrong.. My Notorious Gentleman is a wonderful story about finding your way back from war and discovering love but thi My Notorious Gentleman is book six in Gaelen Foley's Inferno Series and it was an absolute delight. My Notorious Gentleman is a wonderful story about finding your way back from war and discovering love but this time, there is a softer aspect to it. The kind where well Miss Grace Kenwood is a lovely woman, shy, demure, kind, sweet, the perfect parson's daughter.. To Grace every person has a purpose and hers is not to dally with handsome eligible men in darkened rooms but to help keep her neighbors in line, to find charity for those returned from war and to give respite to the widows and families left behind.
Lord Trevor Montgomery had his life all planned out.. Only when he was held in captivity and considered dead, she found someone new. Now that he is back to life, needless to say he is just a little bit peeved. It doesn't help that every woman he meets is practically throwing themselves at him.
So when he discovers a saucy minx in a darkened room he goes for it, why not? She's asking for it, isn't she?

Instead of rebuilding his new property and bringing it to glory, Trevor and Grace revive the community. And on the way fall in love.. Trevor realizes that he has let bitterness rule his life and he has to find ways to forgive those who hurt him. To find a way to accept that life doesn't always go as planned and that sometimes what we don't plan for ourselves is so much better.
I liked Trevor and Grace they are just decent people.. Even with the simple country life they manage to find a few bumps in the road but the love they share, the integrity they have shines through.. Be sure and check out the Inferno Club, it's decadently delightful!! Feb 07, Lover of Romance rated it it was amazing Shelves: genre-historical-romance , publisher-avon , regency. I can not say how much I enjoyed reading this one. If you have yet to read one of her stories, you are missing out There is nothing I like better than sitting down, relaxing, and reading a romance from Gaelen Foley.
Such remarkable talent and drama and intensity, its bound to captive you from the get go. My Notorious Gentleman is the sixth of the series, but I am not sure if its the last one, in fact I am thinking there might be a next installment considering it had a small bit of a cliffhanger. Only small enough that has me intrigued. Grace is a ministers daughter, and as such, she has a desire to help others. When she finds herself in London, helping a family friend from drinking and gambling his life away, she comes across Lord Trevor Montgomery, who has the mistaken impression that she is after him, and practically seduces her on a couch, and what is a woman to do except defend herself and attack him with a hair pin.
Then later at the party her father introduces her to him, and now she has no idea what to think of him. But when her father encourages him to buy a piece of property that is right next door, she is appalled, that is the last thing that she needs, a man who is more tempting than anything she has ever encountered.
Travis, has decided to retire fully from the War Office, he has dedicated his whole life to serving his country, and now he is ready for peace and contentment. When he goes to the countryside, and finds the perfect place, he is intrigued by Grace. She may be a pastor's daughter, but she is beautiful and has a heart of gold.
Grace doesn't understand why Travis is so interested in her. But when life seems to spiral out of control, he is her rock and more than anything she desires to have him forever.
My Notorious Gentleman
A completely memorable story with fascinating characters that only end up capturing your heart. A heart warming and deeply riveting story of a tender and romantic love between this pair that warmed me up inside and out. I loved the setting of the story, and there was so much I enjoyed about this. It didn't have a whole ton of intense espionage drama like you are used to with this series. However it did have some suspenseful moments that will definitely get your attention. A remarkably written story, and this just might have to go on as top of the list of favorites from this author.
An enriching and passionate love tale that is bound to stir up all kinds of emotions. Oct 14, Claudia rated it really liked it Shelves: historical-romance , wallflower-plain-jane-nerds.

I somewhat enjoyed this book, but I certainly didn't love it.
The characterization was good, but nearly all of the characters annoyed me. Especially Grace. Her pious, holier-than-thou judgments were fitting, but since I have a really hard time empathizing with such a character, I'm afraid I couldn't really get close to her. It's been possible for me in the past to empathize with characters whom I found completely different from myself, but this book is not all that deep, so my first instinct was I somewhat enjoyed this book, but I certainly didn't love it. It's been possible for me in the past to empathize with characters whom I found completely different from myself, but this book is not all that deep, so my first instinct was not to understand, but to slap Grace upside the head for being such an uppity bitch.
The thing that really infuriated me was that she stood up to Trevor with little trouble at all, and judged him unfairly, while simultaneously allowing the assholes in her little utopia to run roughshod over her at every turn. Calpurnia, George, the twins, Mrs.
here While Trevor got the short side of her temper merely for existing. He was nice to her, respectful after their initial encounter, anyway , charming, generous, etc. She does change, I'll give her that. She eventually realizes she's been completely unfair to Trevor and even wholeheartedly embraces his talents. That was nice. Still, her initial reluctance to accept him while hiding her feelings and aiding and abetting one of the most selfish young women of her acquaintance didn't endear her to me. Apr 20, Jaclyn rated it liked it Shelves: arc , historical-romance , spies , edelweiss , war-hero-soldier , wallflower.
Overall, I enjoyed this book and it does make me want to take a look at the rest of the series. In terms of the characters, I thought Trevor was more developed than Grace. With Grace, I felt she was a little too good to be true; she was just so nice all the time. I would have liked a little more after Trevor and Grace had decided to be together.
We had a great slow build and then the conclusion rushed forward. What I also liked was the mention of the year without summer. This was great because I was actually reading a book about the volcano that caused the summer of to be rather chilly. I thought it was cool that Foley mentioned this in her book and it just goes to show that you can learn intellectual facts from romance novels take that, naysayers!
A Review copy was provided by the publisher via Edelweiss. Nov 06, Jane Mercer rated it it was ok. I find Foley a bit hit or miss this is mostly a miss It would have worked fine as a western, since there were far too many Americanisms hitching to a post to go to the dry goods store, baking biscuits to go with lunch to name a few. And the gang from London who all knew how to ride and had horses though they could have stolen them I suppose.
Plot wise it was ok but the preachers daughter was far too keen to throw her cap over the windmill and jump into bed with the hero. That bugged me a bit the I find Foley a bit hit or miss this is mostly a miss It would have worked fine as a western, since there were far too many Americanisms hitching to a post to go to the dry goods store, baking biscuits to go with lunch to name a few.
That bugged me a bit the americanism of calling the reverend's daughter the preacher's or parson's daughter all the time. She does use Reverend once or twice but seldom as well as vicar the more normal way of looking at it. Foley's books centered in town are mostly ok there's an Americanism for you :- but she seems to fail in the English countryside. Maybe I'm picky not everyone can be Heyer but definetely not one of her best Jul 31, Katie rated it really liked it.
Gaelen's books are not as good as they used to be for me.
This one was very boring until the very end, when the pace picked up. I also just wasn't very invested in the two characters at all. Looking forward to the last book in this series I think that one will hold up , then I can't wait for her to start something new. Still gotta give it 4 stars because I just love GF overall. Mar 16, Cass rated it it was ok Shelves: historical-romance. Trevor seemed a little forced as a character at times, and while I liked Grace, the fact that she could put up with Callie at all was a testament to her character.
Decent book, but not one that I would reread. The ending came out of nowhere and seemed out of place in comparison to the other books in the series. Feb 06, Lauren rated it it was ok Shelves: historical-romance. Likable characters but not particularly interesting story. Mar 19, Michelle Connolly rated it really liked it Shelves: historical-romance , wallflower-spinster , owned-paperback , series , tortured-scarred-hero , ex-military-law-bow-street-spy , favourite , 4-stars , kindle , regency-romance. Excepting that last -and slightly unnecessary- bit towards the end, and despite the fact that our Hero is an ex-spy and assassin, My Notorious Gentleman was, for the most part, a simple love story between a much tormented war hero and a shy, prim Reverend's daughter.
There isn't much suspense or action going on until we reach the last part of the book but, to be honest, I felt like it could've done without it.
