Publisher's Summary

She would be his perfect revenge....

All of the young ladies whispered about the Duke of Mondvale in hushed tones, their eyes following his tall, dark figure with barely disguised lust. For the newly-ostracized Lady Constance Thornton, he is magnetic and altogether desirable. Irresistibly so. Since her reputation is already ruined in London society, why shouldn't she be impudent and dance with the scandalous "Lord of Sin"?

Little does she know of his plans.

The beautiful and innocent Lady Constance is no mere plaything for Lucan Wynwood. She will be his revenge. By ruining her, he will have his vengeance against her brother. Except that the Lady Constance is full of surprises... and now she could well be the ruin of him.

Good storyline, but...

I liked the storyline, but the Duke starts off like he’s a jaded rake badass with a score to settle but develops quickly into a bit of a whiny man-boy. Given he’s supposed to be this sinful but hard working Duke who still helps run a club of sin, I expected him to be more hardened. I was disappointed with the characters. I also did not like the reader for the book which probably added to my disappointment in the Duke. He didn’t sound Ducal or like a unscrupulous rake. The story could’ve definitely been better developed with the same conclusion.

Excellent!

I cannot reassure you enough that Charlotte is not a whiner! I disagree strongly with the reviewer who was so upset with her. I think perhaps the tone of the narrator which was high and almost irritating when speaking for the heroine did during one scene sound whiny but it was not written as a whine. She was actually a strong character, who dealt well with the flawed soul of the hero. This was a tale of revenge, misconceptions, and love.... it is exceptionally well written.

The performance of the narrator is excellent but the tone she gave the heroines speech did leave something to be desired at times.

Heat Factor? Geez, off the charts!

Creditworthy? Oh yessssss.......

Pathetic heroine

The weakest and most pathetic heroine I have ever seen in a book. All the pleading and declarations of love and begging for his asking for her hand made me think who can actually find such a pathetic and needy person as at all interesting. She had nothing to make her special except her appearance. Torture to listen to her constant throwing herself at the hero. Exhausting. Not impressed.

superb storytelling

This was a great book with different angles to the usual historical romance themes. I was engaged the whole time with both hero and heroine and their storylines. And very nice chemistry between these two!!
I highly recommend it.
