For years, he’s been an object of fear, fascination . . . and fantasy. But of all the wicked rumors that shadow the formidable Alexander Moncrieffe, Duke of Falconbridge, the ton knows one thing for certain: only fools dare cross him. And when Ian Eversea does just that, Moncrieffe knows the perfect revenge: he’ll seduce Ian’s innocent sister, Genevieve—the only Eversea as yet untouched by scandal. First he’ll capture her heart . . . and then he’ll break it.
But everything about Genevieve is unexpected: the passion simmering beneath her cool control, the sharp wit tempered by gentleness . . . And though Genevieve has heard the whispers about the duke’s dark past, and knows she trifles with him at her peril, one incendiary kiss tempts her deeper into a world of extraordinary sensuality. Until Genevieve is faced with a fateful choice . . . is there anything she won’t do for a duke?
Review (5 / 5)
This is one of those magical five star books for me. The witty exchanges between the hero and the heroine delight me on each rereading. I am especially awed by how much I like the book because I don’t like revenge plots or love triangles and these themes work brilliantly in this book. I love the hero of this book. He is cynical and knows himself. He knows himself so well that he notices when he changes. It is great stuff.The heroine is much younger than the hero and she has the flaws of youth of not fully seeing people but also the gifts of youth as well. She grows up in this book and becomes a woman full. So, she didn’t annoy me as she did some other readers. Her flaws were part of her. The book is so funny and the hero and heroine are smart people. I highly recommend this book. I smile just thinking about it.
