Most women will give him anything he wants. She is not most women…
As a well-known barrister and the son of a duke, Ives confines his passionate impulses to discreet affairs with worldly mistresses. A twist of fate, however, has him looking for a new lover right when a fascinating woman shows up in his chambers, asking him to help save her father from the gallows. Unfortunately, he has already been asked to serve as the prosecutor in the case, but that only ensures close encounters with the rarity named Padua Belvoir. And every encounter increases his desire to tutor her in pleasure's wicked ways…
Having always been too tall, too willful, and too smart to appeal to men, Padua Belvoir is shocked when Ives shows interest in her. Knowing his penchant for helping the wrongly accused, she had initially thought he might be her father's best hope for salvation. Instead, he is her worst adversary—not least because every time he looks at her, she is tempted to give him anything he wants…

I just finished Tall, Dark and Wicked and it was a good read for me. It’s been a long while since I have read a historical book, makes me miss them.
This is about Ives and Padua. Padua is trying to hire Ives to save her father from the gallows. He is wanted for counterfeiting. There is no way her scholar of a father would do that. What she doesn’t expect is Ives to have already been approached to prosecute her dad. He is a good and fair lawyer that Padua wishes to have in their corner but in their best interest she looks for someone else with the help of Ives. What they both don’t expect is the instant attraction that they have for one another.
It’s a good story with good characters. I just wish I had more depth from them. At times I felt like I was just reading the words and not their voices. It’s a good start for me and would still recommend it to my girls.
