What kind of woman ventures into London's most notorious pleasure club? An outsider like Graciela, the Duchess of Autenberry, snubbed time and time again by society because of her Spanish roots. Ela longs to take a lover for a single wild night, and within the walls of Sodom there are gentlemen to suit every forbidden taste. If only she were not so drawn to the smoldering Lord Strickland...a dangerous man who sees beyond her mask and could ruin her reputation with a mere whisper.

The last thing Marcus, the Duke of Autenberry, expects to see after sleeping off a night’s drunken shenanigans is a woman being auctioned in the village square. Before he can think about the ramifications, he buys her, thinking he’s winning the girl her freedom. Instead, he discovers he’s bought a wife. Alyse Bell is almost rid of the shackles that bound her in a name-only marriage, but the day her friend promised to purchase her in a wife auction, he vanishes, leaving her to face a mob of unsavory bachelors. But the appearance of a wicked, wealthy stranger changes her path forever.

One would think the last place a beauty like Fallon O'Rourke could keep her virtue was in the Mayfair mansion of London's most licentious duke, the notorious Dominic Hale. Yet Fallon - who's endured nothing but lecherous advances since her father's tragic death - is perfectly safe there...disguised as a footman! Beneath the notice of the dark-haired devil with his smoldering blue eyes and sinful smile, Fallon never imagines her secret will be discovered. But how long can her deception last?

It's so nice to read a book that has a plot twist you didn't anticipate. I loved the 3 books prior to this one and couldn't wait to find out why the sister was missing. This book doesn't disappoint. Hot and steamy, check. Loving romance, check. Adventure, check. Surprise, check! All of that and a fantastic reader too! Great job Jess and Danielle!

What I especially liked about this book were the variety of characters with their very seedy, sketchy, and sassy personalities. Some books get confusing with a variety of characters who are more differentiated by their titles, but this was balanced and personality polished to a royal perfection. I laughed, held my breath in anticipation, was memorized, enchanted, and got heated with the steamy parts too. Very well written and fabulous reader as well! Nicely done!

Wow! I have a new favorite author! Bought this book because I loved how Carmen Rose sounded in another story. My only question is why haven't I heard of her before? This book has it all from innocence to erotic. I won't spoil it, just buy this one, you won't be disappointed. I'm checking to see what else Ms. Sophie Jordan has to buy. Loved it!!!
