Lucan Wynwood, Duke of Mondvale is known in the Ton as the Duke of Sin. Growing up, Lucan wasn't aware that his mother was the daughter of a Duke and had to earn his fortune. While Lucan was in America making his fortune, his sister committed suicide over a failed affair with the Duke of Calydon. Lucan has sworn revenge on anyone connected with his sister's death. Calydon has a perfect target: his siblings. Lucan has let it be leaked that Calydon's younger siblings Anthony and Constance are the product of an affair and are bastards. Now, Constance is known as the Beautiful Bastard and is given the cut direct. When Lucan meets her at a ball, he starts the next phase in his revenge. He is going to seduce Constance and make her fall in love with him. When the plan backfires, Lucan ends up losing his heart to Constance.
Stacy Reid is one of the best new authors I have found. I love the characters in her novels and how they are connected but stand alone. As the novel progressed, I was hoping that Lucan would have a change of heart and fall in love with Constance. I loved revisiting the characters from the first two novels. And the heat factor! My favorite genre is Historical Erotica. Again, another awesome book from Stacy Reid!
