A woman seeks revenge by posing as a housemaid and taking down the rogue that broke her sister's heart in this character-driven, sinful, historical romance. Justice. That's all Nell Trim wants-for her sister and for the countless other young women the Marquess of Leath has ruined with his wildly seductive ways. Now she has a bold plan to take him down . . . as long as she can resist the scoundrel's temptations herself. From the moment Nell meets James Fairbrother, the air positively sizzles. Yet for all his size and power, there's something amazingly tender in his touch. Could he really be such a depraved rogue? The only way to find out is to beat the devil at his own game . . . one tempting kiss at a time. Anything can happen in the moonlight . . .
Campbell's beguiling fourth Sons of Sin Regency (after What a Duke Dares) pits the vengeful Nel Trim against dastardly cad James Fairbrother, Marquess of Leath. Once Nel learns that Leath's seduction of her innocent half-sister, Dorothy, caused the young woman's scandalous pregnancy and childbed death, she will stop at nothing to bring him down. She makes up her mind to steal the private diary he keeps of all his lecherous assignations, to expose him for the lout he is. When James catches Nel searching his library, he intends to toss her out of his house, but his intractable mother insists on taking Nel as her personal companion. From there it's a clash of wills and hearts as James, of course, turns out not to be quite the bounder that Dorothy described. Campbell excels at developing the initial misdirection and confusion into sexy romance.
