Forever a Lord (Rumor #3) by Delilah Marvelle

He's a fighter, not a lover.
But that's about to change...

Lady Imogene Norwood lives a sheltered life of quiet respectability and routine...until she debuts at her first Season. There among London's elite she meets the wild and broken Lord Atwood. And the very shy English rose suddenly realizes that a little chaos might just be what her heart desires.

Lord Nathaniel James Atwood doesn't believe true love exists. Since scandal tore him away from his family at an early age, he has spent his life fighting for what he wants. That attitude has made him a rising star in bare-knuckle boxing, and now leads him back to London to reclaim the life that was stolen from him. But upon meeting the innocent Imogene, his beliefs are guarding his heart against her proves to be the fight of his life.

 5/5 stars

I am so not ready to see this series end yet, but I guess all good things must come to an end. I was so happy that Nathaniel got his HEA, I mean each man in this series deserved one, but poor Nathaniel went through so much for a secret that shouldn't have been his to keep for 30 years. Of course everything he went through only strengthened his character and made him a man worth loving with every fiber of your being. And thankfully he found someone to do exactly that in Imogene. Even though Imogene was a very young naive girl, I think that was the perfect match for Nathaniel's world-wiry view of life. I really liked the fact that even though this was set in the 1830's in London we got to experience life outside of the ballrooms and instead was immersed in the world of bare-knuckle boxing. I can't recommend this whole series enough. Delilah Marvelle certainly breathed new life into a genre that was getting a little stale.
