“Lorraine Heath’s books are always magic.”
With Passions of a Wicked Earl, USA Today and New York Times bestseller Lorraine Heath kicks off a new series of delightfully sinful historical romance novels featuring “London’s Greatest Lovers.” The first romantic adventure involving the titled and rakish sons of a scandalous Dowager Duchess and their tales of passion, pleasure, and love, Passions of a Wicked Earl concerns the innocent and unfairly disgraced young wife of the first brother and her brazen attempts to win back the dashing rogue’s heart…by any means necessary!
A spurned wife confronts her profligate husband in Heath's dramatic Victorian romance series launch. Claire Lyons travels to London from her three-year exile in the country to ask her husband, the earl of Westcliffe, to allow her to stay in town for her sister's first Season. Westcliffe believes Claire cheated on him with his brother, but he reluctantly admires her tenacity, charm, and forthright nature. Romantic tension between the pair is heightened by the frequent appearances of Westcliffe's mistress, Anne, and her machinations to lure him away from Claire. Plenty of other twists and turns appear en route to the passionate conclusion. Complex, emotional romance and a hint of mystery complete this tale, which will have readers eagerly anticipating the next installment.

Good read love this series love the family
It was going well until…
After the betrayal that happens at the beginning of the book the progression of the relationship between the hero and the heroine is well-paced. It made sense for things to take their time, and the reader gets a sense of falling back in love as the characters are as well. However, the author seemed to want to wrap it all up at the end with a very typical plot twist and decides to add a ludicrous wrench in the story that wasn't necessary. Would've enjoyed it more without it.
