I picked this book as my first Gaelen Foley because it had such great reviews, and having loved the tough-guy heroes in Lisa Kleypas's Dreaming of You and Worth Any Price and Elizabeth Hoyt's Scandalous Desires, I though Billy Blade might be cut from the same cloth. Well, he is and he isn't. The early scenes, where he's running a band of thieves, are better than the later ones, where he's emerged as the son of a marquis. Over all, he is very sexy and larger than life, but he's no Derek Craven.
Lady Lucinda Knight, the heroine, is really too young and silly for him, but she matures at a rather amazing rate as the story progresses.
I haven't read the books that precede this one, but the Knight brothers looks like a fun and fascinating group. I'll probably check out at least The Duke, which also has lots of positive reviews and is rated a DIK at All About Romance.
