‘Duke of Sin’ by Elizabeth Hoyt

dos ehSTORY: 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 . . .

REVIEW: I think this is the tenth book in this series and the one I liked the least. The reason for it is the “hero”. I just couldn’t like him. Not one bit.

Here’s the thing. Some heroes can start off as “bad boys” and the heroine can “reform” them. But there are some that no matter how much you try to “reform” the character just won’t be reformed.

There’s just something about this man that is not just off-putting, but down right unlikable. For the life of me I don’t understand why did the author feel the need to try and reform him.

At this point I’ve vested a lot of time in this series and I will definitely continue with it. All the books are well written and plotted, and the characters are phenomenal, except this hero.

If you’ve never read this author, do not start with this book. Pick any of her others and you’ll love it. Not this one.
