Lorraine Heath ends her bestselling Sins for All Seasons series with the hero readers have been waiting for!
She wants lessons in seduction
Althea Stanwick was a perfect lady destined to marry a wealthy lord, until betrayal left her family penniless. Though she’s lost friends, fortune, and respectability, Althea has gained a scandalous plan. If she can learn to seduce, she can obtain power over men and return to Society on her terms. She even has the perfect teacher in mind, a man whose sense of honor and dark good looks belie his nickname: Beast.
But desire like this can’t be taught
Benedict Trewlove may not know his parentage but he knows where he belongs—on the dark side of London, offering protection wherever it’s needed. Yet no woman has ever made such an outrageous request as this mysterious beauty. Althea is out of place amongst vice and sin, even if she offers a wicked temptation he can’t resist. But as the truth of his origin emerges at last, it will take a fierce, wild love to overcome their pasts.
Heath concludes her Sin for All Seasons series (after The Earl Takes a Fancy) with a true treat of a Victorian romance. Lady Althea Stanwick and her two older brothers are in dire straits after their land and titles are revoked in punishment for a treasonous act committed by their father. To make ends meet, Althea finds work as a barmaid at the Mermaid and the Unicorn in Whitechapel, an inn owned by the new Duchess Thornley, ne Trewlove, the heroine of When a Duke Loves a Woman. There Althea meets Benjamin "Beast" Trewlove, the duchess's brother, who instantly recognizes Althea as a highborn lady. Beast has made it his mission to protect London's prostitutes and help them to transition out of sex work, and he offers Althea a position teaching the women under his protection more refined skills in exchange for housing and a hefty sum. Althea agrees, gaining financial independence and the ability to support her brothers as they search for the truth behind their father's betrayal. And when Althea asks Beast for lessons in seduction, their already simmering chemistry comes to a boil. Heath may have saved the best for last.
