Val is one sneaky, underhanded hero! Elizabeth Hoyt knows just how to take a hero and make him unique! He's been the bad boy in the past few books so it's going to take quite a bit to redeem him in my eyes. He's got his sister's loyalty, or he did until he went too far in the previous books. He must have done something good in his life, right?

When you read this story you'll fall for him, hook, line and sinker. I've read dozens of books since I first read this one and still he holds a place in my heart.

Bridget Connors is working as a spy of a sort, for someone Val has been blackmailing. She thwarts him at every turn. There is nothing better to get his attention then to one this devilish Duke. She holds her own with him and it is refreshing to see.

When she needs him the most, though, he goes to bat for her and that right there is a hell of a man.

As you can tell Valentine Napier holds a special place in my heart. I could read his story over and over and over again! Those Lord's of Chaos need to be taken down and ripped from limb to limb. such a fascinating book!

Synopsis


 

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 . . .
