What a Lady Needs (The Redgraves #2) by Kasey Michaels

Lady Katherine Redgrave has one mission—to find her deceased father's journals, which may hold the key to a traitorous conspiracy that puts Kate's family in danger. Kate vows to let no obstacle stand in her way . . . but when she meets Simon Ravenbill, Marquis of Singleton, her attention is diverted as the sinfully handsome nobleman tempts her beyond reason.

Simon has a mission of his own: to uncover the truth about the secret society he believes murdered his brother. All he needs is to get to the Redgrave journals before Kate does. The solution is simple—he'll romance the fiery beauty in hopes of distracting her from her quest, all while covertly searching for the diaries himself. Yet what begins as a charade soon becomes an all-consuming desire . . . one that could lead them down the most dangerous path of all.

4/5 stars 

This was an interesting book. The series revolves around a secret society that uses sex as a way to trap men into doing the leader's bidding. Who that leader is is still a mystery as is the members of the club. A few of the members have been exposed and most of those members have died under mysterious circumstances. Enter the Redgrave family. The Society was founded by the grandfather and resurrected by the father of the current Earl and his siblings.

In this book, the second of the series, Kate is on a mission to find the journals of her grandfather and/or father and since they're pretty scandalous her brothers send in someone to help her find them and keep her from actually reading them. The man tasked with that is Simon Ravenbill. But once they set eyes on each other they have more then journals on their minds.

I really liked the attraction that Kate and Simon shared and felt that they were a good fit for each other. Simon was a very understanding man and tried to keep the worst of the Society from Kate while at the same time not hiding thing from her.

I think people will enjoy this book and series, if for nothing else people will kick a kick out of Adam Collier. But seriously, it's a interesting read about the "hellfire" clubs and the threat of sedition in England at the time.
