Blurb from Goodreads:
Desperate times call for daring measures as Honor Cabot, the eldest stepdaughter of the wealthy Earl of Beckington, awaits her family's ruin. Upon the earl's death she and her sisters stand to lose the luxury of their grand home - and their place on the pedestal of society - to their stepbrother and his social-climbing fiancée. Forced to act quickly, Honor makes a devil's bargain with the only rogue in London who can seduce her stepbrother's fiancée out of the Cabots' lives for good.

An illegitimate son of a duke, George Easton was born of scandal and grows his fortune through dangerous risks. But now he and Honor are dabbling in a perilous dance of seduction that puts her reputation and his jaded heart on the line. And as unexpected desire threatens to change the rules of their secret game, the stakes may become too high even for a notorious gambler and a determined, free-spirited debutante to handle.

My Review:
A very big thank you to Netgalley and Harlequin HQN for providing me with an ARC of this book.

I know Julia Landon to be a bestselling historical romance author and have shelved her books but The Trouble With Honor is my very first read from this author and definitely do not regret requesting it from Netgalley. The voice of the characters and style of writing took some getting used to at first, but after that I was gobbling every single word. It was that delicious.

I truly enjoyed reading about Honor and her sisters. They were so well written because readers can already see the individuality of each of the sisters. Before the end of the story, I was already so eager for Grace's (the second Cabot sister) story.

Honor and George's scenes were just great. I really looked forward to their meetings, aside from the sisters' of course. This story doesn't really have an antagonist or a villain. I really detested Monica at first, but towards the end, she wasn't all that bad after all.

All in all, The Trouble With Honor is a highly recommended HR read. *Two thumbs up* d^^b
