THE DANGER IN DARING A LADY by EMMA LOCKE is the sixth book in THE NAUGHTY GIRLS series. This is the first book I have read by Emma Clarke, but I find myself drawn into this series and I will go back and read the others. Even though this book is part of a series, it can easily be read as a standalone. THE DANGER IN DARING A LADY is an historical romance, but it doesn’t dwell on details of the period and lose the focus of the story.
Miss Caitlin Hart is a strong willed, hardworking, no nonsense, independent, beautiful woman. When her sister passed away, she was left with a small farm, Southfield Farm, to take care of. Unfortunately for her, Lord Bamber owns a hugely successful estate that borders Caitlin’s farm. Lord Bamber desperately wants to claim Caitlin’s farm for himself, and will stop at nothing to attain it. Caitlin has refused on numerous occasions to let him purchase it, so he has stooped to devious measures to get his way. Equipment becomes missing, fences and walls mysteriously torn down, and any laborers she hires are bought off or hired by Lord Bamber. Caitlin never waivers in her hard work and determination to make the farm lucrative.
