Review: One Night in London, by Carolyn Linden

One Night in London
Author: Caroline Linden
Historical Romance
Publisher: HarperCollins

Official Blurb:
A bargain that was all business . . . and pure passion.

Neither wealth nor beauty will help Lady Francesca Gordon win custody of her young niece Georgina, saving the girl from a cruel stepmother; she needs London’s top solicitor for that. But when Edward de Lacey, son of the powerful Duke of Durham, hires away the one man who can do the job, Francesca decides Edward himself must champion her case . . . if only she can melt the dashing lord’s stony heart.

Edward has reason to be guarded, though. London’s tabloids have just exposed a secret that could ruin his entire family. When Francesca offers a unique chance to undo the damage, Edward is forced to agree to a partnership . . . and now, each moment together feeds the flames of his scandalous longing for the passionate widow. But when Georgina disappears, fate will test them both . . . and leave their love hanging in the balance.

What I thought:
*I received this book from Netgalley for review.

I love historical romances and I will say this book captured me straight away when a down on her luck Francesca finds her much needed solicitor ripped from her grasp by a wealthy family.  Instead of sulking she finds out who the mystery client is and barges in to demand his help.
