Sebastian Malheur is the most dangerous sort of rake: an educated one. When he’s not scandalizing ladies in the bedchamber, he’s outraging proper society with his scientific theories. He’s desired, reviled, acclaimed, and despised—and he laughs through it all.
Violet Waterfield, the widowed Countess of Cambury, on the other hand, is entirely respectable, and she’d like to stay that way. But Violet has a secret that is beyond ruinous, one that ties her irrevocably to England’s most infamous scoundrel: Sebastian’s theories aren’t his. They’re hers.
So when Sebastian threatens to dissolve their years-long conspiracy, she’ll do anything to save their partnership...even if it means opening her vulnerable heart to the rake who could destroy it for good.

Better and better!
The books in the Brothers Sinister just get better and better as they go along! Having been a biology teacher for ages, I found the explanations easily understood. I hope the women I have taught don’t have the problems with male egos that Violet had!
I love a book that makes you think. There is a lot of science info that might scare some off, but I appreciate all the effort to legitimize the discovery process for Violet. I love the depth the author gives her characters. There is always more to learn about them. They are always learning more about themselves as well. I applaud the devoted love that Sebastian has for Violet. Well written and well received!
This book started off a little slower than the others but caught up fast and the material made up for it. By the end of the book I couldn't put it down. Once again another simply amazing book from this author. I have bought the entire series. This is another must read.
