What an Earl Wants by Kasey Michaels

Book Description:

USA TODAY bestselling author Kasey Michaels returns with a brand-new passionate historical series, featuring Kasey’s trademark banter and passionate romance.
Gideon Redgrave, eldest child of the late Earl of Saltwood, refuses to be humbled by the scandal that once tore his family apart. He’s built his life in London society around one rule: trust no one. So the last thing he wants is to play guardian and role model to a headstrong boy…or to engage in a battle of wills with the boy’s spirited half sister, who is fighting Gideon for custody.
Beautiful and bold, young widow Jessica Linden proves to be a formidable and passionate adversary. But the more they lock horns, the more Gideon realizes he’d prefer to have Jessica on his side…and in his arms. Especially now that a new threat—sprung from his father’s supposedly defunct secret society—is poised to destroy the Redgraves once and for all.
My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this book.  Gideon Redgrave is known by many.  His family and the 'legacy' his father left behind is known by more.  He has become guardian to a less than stellar young man whose sister is determined to get him back regardless of what Gideon says or does.  Jessica doesn't want her younger brother to get involved with what their father was into and what she KNOWS Gideon is involved in....or does she?
I liked Jessica.  She was determined to do what was best for her brother.  She remembered him as the younger boy and when she met the 'man' he was becoming it was hilarious!  Gideon was likable just because he used the family's legacy to his advantage but wasn't actually like that.  I like that he and Jessica work together and the attraction between them is so strong!

I rate this a 4/5.  It was a good start to a new series.

Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book (via netgalley).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
