The heroine, the young and beautiful Perdita, the Duchess of Ormond, has endured years of abuse at the hands of her husband, Gevase. When he is accidentally killed by falling on t [...]


    2. This is the final book in Manda Collins’s Wicked Widows series, although there is a Christmas novella, Once Upon a Christmas Kiss, which features Sir Lucien Blakemore, a secondary character in the series, as the hero.The series centres on sisters, Isabella and Perdita, and their friend, Georgina… all widows of abusive husbands. They share a terrible secret concerning the death of Perdita’s husband, the Duke of Ormonde, but find themselves threatened by someone who obviously knows that secr [...]


    3. In her exciting conclusion of her Wicked Widows Trilogy, Manda Collins finally answers the question Just who is after the three ladies? And boy is it a windinger Three women, betrayed by family into horrid marriages where abuse abounded were together the night the Duke of Ormonde attacked his wife and finally died.

    4. this is the third book in this series and while I really liked the first book, loved and adored the second book, I knew when I started that I would have some troubles with this one. the reason for this is that the foreplay for their story was great, it is always difficult to reach the expactations.Perdita was the most difficult heroine for me in this series (especially after Georgina, whom I adored) but that I did not expect that I would be so disappointed with her behaviour. The way, she treats [...]


    5. Good conclusion to the Wicked Widows trilogy. It all started with the death of Perdita's abusive husband, as he held a knife to her throat. Only Perdita, her sister Isabella, and their friend Georgina know exactly what occurred - or so they thought. In the first book, someone starts tormenting and threatening the three women, claiming to know what happened and threatening to expose them. Isabella and Georgina are saved from their stalkers with the help of the men they love, but the person behind [...]


    6. The Hero winsWhy Lords Lose Their Hearts was a wonderful tale about Perdita and Archer. We met both characters in the two previous stories in this series. The main plot of the series is based around the death of Perdita's husband Gervase. He had been a horrible husband who regularly beat Perdita. Archer had been Gervase's secretary and had regular contact with the couple. In this time Archer's feelings for Perdita grew, but he knew that because he didn't hold a title (even though his father is a [...]


    7. I came in at the end of this series. Perdita, her sister, and her friend were all there when her husband died and they know the truth. Someone else knows what happened last season as well and is trying to make the trio pay. Perdita is the last and she seems to be getting the worst of it. Lord Archer was her husband's secretary. He is also in love with her. Perdita doesn't want to make the mistake of marrying someone that will treat her like her first husband and doesn't trust her judgement so sh [...]


    8. 3.5/5I enjoyed this final installment in the trilogy - I'm happy to finally know who was behind it all. It was sweet and romantic. Full review on my blog soonUpdated, July 23, 2014: I have to admit that I'm a bit picky with my historical romances and generally I will not pick one up if it features a widow. I'm not really sure why, but as soon as I read that in a description, I just feel put off. That said, I made an exception for Manda Collins' Wicked Widow trilogy because I adored her Ugly Duck [...]


    9. Lord Archer Lisle, is the youngest of five sons, and has to work for a living. But there is one reason he has stayed at the same position, even though it was a fun job to begin with, Perdita. Perdita is the widowed Duchess of Ormand, has suffered from an abusive marriage, but when it defending her life, her husband is killed, she knew that this secret must never get out, for there is only a few that know; her family and Archer. She has always felt a kinship toward Archer, and now that she is fre [...]


    10. The exciting, sexy conclusion to author Manda Collins' delightful Wicked Widows series! Taken from my review at RomanceJunkies:Perdita, the widowed Duchess of Ormonde, has a secret, one she shares with her sister, Isabella, and their friend, Georgianna. They know the truth about how Perdita’s abusive husband died and so does someone else. There have already been attempts on Isabella and Georgianna’s lives and now Perdita is receiving anonymous notes, letting her know that her secret is known [...]


    11. I'm not sure why I liked this book so much better than the first two. Perhaps it is because we got to meet Perdita and Archer in previous books. Or maybe it's because I'm such a sucker for the friends-to-lovers trope. Either way, I quite enjoyed this book and was glad it went out with a bang. At least for me. There is at least one part of this story that I think other readers will take issue with and I'm looking forward to reading other reviews.Perdita, the widowed Duchess of Ormand (never calle [...]


    12. A delightfully sweet, absolutely fantastic historical romance, Why Lords Lose Their Hearts was simply amazing. From the lovely romance, to the thrills of danger, and the unexpected twist, this book was wonderful.Perdita was a lovely heroine. After being stuck in a horrible marriage for years, she was determined to live her life on her own terms and make her own decisions. Unfortunately, that sometimes translated into being stubborn about really stupid things. But, beyond that, she was stronger t [...]


    13. This is book 3 in the Wicked Widows series.Someone is out to do harm to Perdita, the widowed Duchess of Ormond. The person blames her for the Duke's death. Having already been through threatening situations with her sister and best friend, Perdita is not surprised when the villain sets his eyes on her. But when the threats start happening in public, she realizes that she must turn to someone for help. The logical choice is Lord Archer Lisle. Archer was the personal secretary of the former Duke a [...]


    14. I requested the ARC of Why Lords Lose Their Hearts by Manda Collins from NetGalley in exchange to a honest review, so I have to be honest an say that this book, actually this whole series has been insult to the readers intelligence.The story, through all three books has been inconsistency, timeline has been all out of place and the "surprises" have either been no surprises at all or over the top absurd.In this last book the readers can follow the story of the third widow - Perdita, who's husband [...]


    15. This is the third book in the Wicked WIdow series. This is a very good suspense historical romance. There is lots of excitement and plot twists. The interaction between the two main protagonists was really well done. Perdita, the Dowager Duchess of Ormond is a widow who was abused by her husband and does not trust her judgement anymore when it comes to men, Archer was her husband's personal secretary and he now works for the present Duke of Ormond. If you read the first two books in this series [...]


    16. Finally, the story of Perdita, Duchess of Ormand gets its turn. Throughout this trilogy, the death of her husband by falling on a knife while he was threatening her in front of her two best friends, has been an ugly little secret winding like a snake through all three women's lives. someone know the truth of that day and had made it their mission to punish the women. In the first two books, Isabelle and Georgina were threatened but were able to make happy marriages with their true ;loves. Perdit [...]


    17. Listened for Review (Tantor)Overall Rating: 4.00Story Rating: 4.25Character Rating: 3.75Audio Rating: 4.00 (not part of the overall rating)First Thought when Finished: Why Lords Lose Their Hearts by Manda Collins was my first book by the author but it won't be my last (especially after the end--now I NEED to get the first two). This was a great combination of action, suspense, love, and intriguing characters. I really loved the friendship between the women and what they would do for each other. [...]


    18. I have found a new author. Manda has a nice book here. She came up with a very plausible story line. She has created some very special people in this series. I haven't read the first stories but it didn't upset this book. Perdita was in danger from her husband. Her sister and a friend tried to get her husband,a Duke, to take the knife from her throat. It ends up with him dead. 2 years later she is being scared with attacks and news stories. Archer, 3rd son of a Duke, has loved her forever and be [...]


    19. I'm totally devastated that another scrumptious series has come to an end but I'm a tad comforted that there will be a novella soon and I hope Manda Collins will let us know whether Georgie and Perdita will have babies of their own.


    20. Good conclusion to a satisfying Regency romance series. The mystery was sustained very well, and the culprit was a surprise to me. Archer is a delectable hero, just right for tortured Perdita.Reviewed for Affaire De Coeur Magazine in the August 2014. affairedecoeur.


    21. Manda CollinsIsabella, Perdita and Georgina were all in the room when Perdita's hubby, the cruel and evil Duke of Ormond, was shot and stabbed to death and, now over a year later, a evil unknown nemesis wants REVENGE for the Duke's untimely death! This the last book in the series and this GREAT MYSTERIOUS FOE will be UNMASKED!Perdita (she will always be Perdy to me) was in a marriage of violence from her husband, the Duke of Ormond, who thought love was about fists, totally control of every aspe [...]


    22. 3.5 stars The story is good, but for me it was all ''shadowed'' by the fact that I didn't like Perdita, the heroine, that much. I understand her reasons, but She wanted to marry a ''biddable'' man so she could have children and still keep the hero as her lover, knowing he was an honorable man who was in love with her. Her attitude towards her prospective husband I could attribute to the bad experience with her first marriage, but the hero, who was always there for her and possibly the only man s [...]


    23. So I’ve been waiting for Perdita and Archer since book one. Since the time I found out that Archer had a crush of the widowed duchess, I was intrigued. And so, I badly wanted to love this book. And I did, but I also didn’t.Perdita is the the widowed Duchess of Ormond. The Duke of Ormond died a suspicious death, and someone is trying to exact revenge on Predita (and in the previous two books, Isabella and Georgina) who the mysterious avengers believes are the murderers. The attacks have been [...]


    24. The plot was (is) so very interesting; so much so that, as soon as I've received the novel, I started reading it, very late in the night and with a certain eagernesswhat a pity that the development didn't exactly satisfy my expectation. Let's be clear, it is not a bad novel, not at all, but I've encountered some uncertainties, some dead parts and some exaggerations as well.The preamble and the immediately following chapters are amazing; then, I don't know what happens, but the rhythm is not as i [...]


    25. Reviewed by JoAnneBook provided by NetGalley for reviewReview originally posted at Romancing the BookThis was a fast paced historical romance with a longer than usual prologue setting the stage and the epilogue giving nice closure to the story. Not having read the first two books in the series I will definitely be reading them to fill in some of the blanks and there’s also a Christmas novella coming out which I also look forward to reading.Perdita, her sister and her close friend were stronger [...]

    27. Why Lords Lose their Hearts, a new romantic mystery by Manda Collins to be released on July 29, 2014, begins with a plot that promises excitement and intrigue, and main characters that are likeable and sympathetic.

    28. " Why Lords Lose Their Hearts" is the third book in Manda Collins Wicked widows trilogy and to be honest I have not read the first two books, but that in no way effected the enjoyment of this book; the author provides just enough backround on other characters to allow the story to be readable without ruining the first two books This book revolves around Perdita the widowed Duchess of Ormond ! Who unlike the average widow is secretly relieved to be widowed! The former Duke of Ormond , Gervase ver [...]


    29. This my first book from Manda Collins. I can say, I will now, have to go back and read the others from this series. I would recommend reading the others first though.This book was really good. I liked the fact that it was not only the romance, but there was suspense and trying to guess at "who dun it". Archer and Perdita were good characters. Though it was hard for me at first to think he had pined for her so long, it was a little too long in my opinion, but that did not take away from the story [...]


    30. Charming romance! WHY LORDS LOSE THEIR HEARTS is the third and last in the Wicked Widows trilogy, written by Manda Collins. I didn't read the other previous two, so I was a bit confused and felt I missed some important details to fully understand the series. Perdita, the widowed Duchess of Ormond, keeps a dangerous secret—the truth of how her brutish husband died. But a mysterious avenger seems to know it. The youngest of the Duke of Pemberton’s five sons, Lord Archer Lisle is used to waitin [...]
