A MAN OF SIN
Devastatingly handsome. Vain. Unscrupulous. Valentine Napier, the Duke of Montgomery, is the man London whispers about in boudoirs and back alleys. A notorious rake and blackmailer, Montgomery has returned from exile, intent on seeking revenge on those who have wronged him. But what he finds in his own bedroom may lay waste to all his plans.
A WOMAN OF HONOR
Born a bastard, housekeeper Bridget Crumb is clever, bold, and fiercely loyal. When her aristocratic mother becomes the target of extortion, Bridget joins the Duke of Montgomery's household to search for the incriminating evidence-and uncovers something far more dangerous.
A SECRET THAT THREATENS TO DESTROY THEM BOTH
Astonished by the deceptively prim-and surprisingly witty-domestic spy in his chambers, Montgomery is intrigued. And try as she might, Bridget can't resist the slyly charming duke. Now as the two begin their treacherous game of cat and mouse, they soon realize that they both have secrets-and neither may be as nefarious-or as innocent-as they appear . . .
Childish girly Man
I enjoyed the read but it was a bit too over the top with the foolish banter from Val. He came across as a big child and Bridget had to play the parent role. Of all the books this was my least favorite. I immediately re-read book 9 but not feeling like that with this one. Too much foolishness. Looking forward to book 11. Looks like it's going to be all about Alf...
This is my new favorite of the series.
If you are new to the Maiden Lane series, I think you'll be ok reading this one first. Jump in the water is more than fine!!!! Then do your little ole self a favor and read them in order.
I love that this series grew beyond "the Ghost of St. Giles". All the books were mysterious and a little tragic while giving us hope and HEA's. They are each a treasure unto themselves.
Montgomery is fabulously flawed and possibly redeemable with just the right woman. Every bit as good a character as Charming Mickey from Scandalous Desires.
Bridget is so sturdy and good, but funny and ready to take a little of her own when it comes her way.
There wasn't anything I didn't love about this book.
It has mystery, tragedy, humor sensuality, and lots of surprises I didn't see coming.
Elizabeth Hoyt is one of those authors that just amazes me with small touches that give all her stories depth.
If you love well a written historical romance, that is gloriously typo free and utterly enthralling, read this book and the series.
Another great installment
Loved Duke of Sin. The male protagonist was so awful-- kudos to Hoyt for making him so lovable in the end. Can't wait for more from this author!
