Publisher's Summary

It takes two to make a scandal....

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.

Lord Strickland never permitted himself to fantasize about the sultry, off-limits lady, but then he never expected to find Ela in a place so wicked, looking for what he's more than too happy to give. She may not be to the ton's taste, but she suits him perfectly. First, however, he must convince her to trust in this dangerous desire - and in the promise of forever unleashed by one wild, scandalous night.

May-September Romance (not quite December)

Read for Review/Listened for Fun (Edelweiss/Audible)
Overall Rating: 3.75
Character Rating: 3.50
Story Rating: 4.00

Audio Rating: 4.00 (not part of the overall rating)

Quick Thoughts: Part of what I love about Sophie Jordan is she writes unconventional historical romances. This is no exception to that rule. The leading lady Graciela was older than the leading guy Collin. Their romance doesn't follow a typical road either. While I wanted Graciela to have a bit more backbone, I did enjoy their romance. I am really looking forward to the third book in this series because Sophie is going to have to work some magic to make the lead guy in that one worthy of love :)

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated by: Carmen Rose /Length: 7 hrs and 46 mins


Carmen does an excellent job with this series and I loved her voice for Graciela (which has a bit of a Spanish background). I recommend this on audio!

Good in parts

Rather convoluted plot with heroine obsessed with the age difference between her (older) and the hero. Great love scenes though and satisfying ending
