A new sexy Regency paranormal trilogy by bestselling author Lydia Dare features hunky werewolves who need to learn how to behave in polite society. Can this pack of ‘gentlemen’ be trained in the ways of the ton, or is it too late to teach an old Lycan new tricks?

Lady Madeline Hayburn is called upon to lend her respectability and introduce the Hadley brothers to society. Mr. Weston Hadley admires her from afar, yet his very presence draws her in…

Review:  In this story, we meet the Hadley brothers, Archer, Weston and Grayson are rough, blunt and prone to creating a scandal. We also meet Lady Madeline Hayburn, daughter of the Duke of Hythe. Madeline’s father is determined she make a good match. Even though Weston has admired her for a long time, he feels because he is not titled or wealthy, she is far out of his reach. During the full moon, Weston attends a house party at Madeline’s home where she witnesses him changing into a wolf. After this, everything changes. Weston must ensure that Madeline will keep his secrets.

I was intrigued by the story line but overall it just seemed to be missing that spark and sizzle I was looking for. With that said however, the book did hold my attention and I finished it quickly and easily. I’m even looking forward to reading more about Sophie and Archer. Also, even this is noted as being a paranormal historical, the story is for the most part a historical with very little paranormal.

Due to an incident in the beginning, I actually had a hard time warming up to Weston. Weston and Grayson decide to race their phaetons and actually went out of their way to bring their niece and nephew along for the ride. To me, that showed immaturity and just plain ole lack of common sense.

Overall, this was an enjoyable read and I did enjoy meeting all the characters. My one wish would be for just a bit more spark between Madeline and Weston.
