That is, until the night she infiltrates the ton's most scandalous masquerade ball on behalf of her sister, and finds herself in the arms of the one man she'd sworn to hate. Irresistibly arrogant and unapologetically sensuous, infamous rake Lord Wainwright always gets his way. When he accepts a wager to turn his rakish image respectable in just 40 days, he never anticipates falling for an anonymous masked lover. Her home for wayward girls has too many dependents and not enough donations. But just as she's about to pull off the heist of the Season, she tumbles straight into the arms of the handsome detective who has sworn to deliver Mayfair's mysterious thief straight to the gallows.
When Lord Hawkridge inherits a penniless marquessate, he must abandon his courtship of the lowborn girl he loves.
Years later, she rises from commoner to textiles heiress. Hawk has never banished her from his heart. Here's their chance to share his home! But how can he convince a woman whose trust he destroyed that he desires her far more than her money? Faith Digby's chaotic world is too full to bother with men. There's no time for the old flame roaring back into her life. It detracts enough from my enjoyment I can't go higher than a three on this.

I just stumbled on this by accident and I actually started with Following His Footsteps because a friend mentioned loving it but when I started reading about Winston's best friends and their impending marriage, I just had to stop and get my hands on the first two books. This way, I thought, I could enjoy it all the more. Boy, did I enjoy these three books!
More About the Author
A word of warning though: this series is far from over. Although I have read these three books, the story of the third best friend, Sidney Richardson, has not been told yet so we have to wait it out a bit longer. Needless to say, I am really looking forward for what's next to come with this series. The first installment, Remove The Empty Spaces, should not really be read without going on to the second installment, Close The Distance, immediately.

These are a continuing story between Adrien Bellamy and Ion Vasile and if it is just the first book read, there is a huge hanging thingy going on that can be frustrating. The need to read book two is a must. Fortunately, although their story does continue onto book three, Following His Footsteps, they are now just side characters. The main focus of that particular installment is on Winston Tennant and Patrick Gaverson.
Both men are in the first two installments so they are not really curious insertions. In fact, Patrick plays quite a huge role on Adrien's and Ion's relationship. The first two books, as I already mentioned, tells how Adrien finally found the impetus to ask Ion out. Ion had been working in the main office's mail room and been seen by the boss from afar, seen and admired, but given their roles in the office, they hardly saw each other.
It was one bright day when Adrien loses his cool over the lack of solution regarding the employment of thousands, that Ion finds his opportunity to strike. Ion is on his last semester before he finally gets his MBA degree and is really a brilliant young man. The thousands at stake involved his own family and so he knew he needed to do something that would save them their jobs. Well, he did. Only problem is, how to get said solution into the hands of the boss man himself.
This is where Patrick comes in. Patrick is the Personal Assistant to said boss and so had all the means to get those files on the table. He did it. The board read. The solution was simple and implementable. Now to find the brilliant mind who thought it up. That, as they say, is when the story of Ion and Adrien really began.
When two brilliant minds meet, they can either clash or merge.
Two Worlds: Rags & Riches (Two Worlds Saga Book 1)
In this case, the minds merged. Along with their bodies and their hearts. This is a real fairy tale romance - just look at the series title. As fairy tales go, there can be times when things get dark, sometimes it could get adventurous, and then it could go oh so romantic and cheesy.
Then again, that is what I am looking for in a fairy tale and this series did not disappoint. As the drama unfolds in the life of both Ion and Adrien, so does the drama in the life of Patrick unfold. In comes, finally, a man Patrick could hold on to and give up his heart for. Winston Tennant did not have a good life while growing up.

Yes, there were a lot of silver and golden spoons, but emotionally, he was a starved little boy who just wanted to feel some bit of encouragement from his parents, one that did not involve bloodlines and social status. When he came out to his parents after deciding to divorce his wife, he was disowned. Thanks to his best friend and that friend's father, Winston found his feet within the Bellamy empire and soon rose through the rank and file and is now heading the European division.
Unfortunately, being in that position did not make his personal life any happier. It was just as bad as when he first came out. Again, the one that connects the stories is Patrick. Patrick had had a crush on Winston since he first met him five years ago. Unfortunately, the man was straighter as straight and so shrugged it off as fate.
When Winston turns his focus on Patrick after being solidly punched with a not-too-subtle setup by Adrien and company, Patrick decides to live life a little and just enjoy. Never did both men expect their relationship would go the path it did. But they worked it out and so begins, and ends the third book.
This was a very light and incredibly enjoyable, fast read and cannot recommend this enough. But here I am, impatiently awaiting the fourth installment.
I don't think I can stand the wait, frankly, so will just have to stalk this author more, I guess. I really need that fourth installment, I need to know what happens next between Patrick and Winston, and then of course, Sidney. So yeah, 'impatient' is not the mild word that comes to mind. Apr 15, Cathy Brockman rated it really liked it Shelves: favorite-authors , favorites , romance , series-i-like. This book takes up exactly where the last book Remove the Empty Spaces left off so it really needs to be read in order.
Close the Distance
I actually liked this one even better than the first. Things seem to be moving so fast between Ion and Adrien and both men wonder if its too fast, but tragedy strikes making them see that life can change things just as fast as they found each other. I liked the drama that was injected in this story and felt that made it feel more real.
I also liked the support Adrien gave Ion through all that arised. I loved the addition of the surgeon and the hint of Sidney being at least Bi. I adored that Patrick was brought in more and hope there is a next story. Perhaps that is coming in another book.
