'A Wicked Way to Win an Earl' by Anna Bradley is book one in the "Sutherland Scandals" series.
This is the story of Delia and Alec Sutherland.
I would easily give this more stars if I could... it was that good! This is the Historical Romance with the bad acting lead man who has the family to take care of and protect....and a rake. The heroine too has a family she is trying to take care of but is a loving person who tries to keep her self from falling for the hero. This took me on an emotional roller coaster ride that just showed me how much I had become attached to their story.
Delia and her sister a visiting friends that they had met in the country where they live. Delia nor any of her sister come to town because of their mother who made a scandal when she defied her parents and ran off to marry someone else that they felt was beneath her.
