An impulsive kiss between a libertine duke and a mysterious governess sparks a blaze of desire—and intrigue—in this breathtaking Regency romance from the award-winning author of Spy Fall.
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST
Adam Fairfax, the Duke of Sunderford, happily enjoys a different woman (or two) every night—or he did, until his wards landed on his doorstep. Ever since Sunny took in the seven-year-old twin girls and their prim and proper governess, Isabel Finch, his love life has been a shambles. But, as time goes by, Sunny catches himself getting lost in Isabel’s haughty blue eyes, or following the curves beneath her unbecoming dress. An unexpected kiss ignites a passion that shocks him into realizing how thin the line between love and hate can be.
If Isabel’s hidden past were revealed, she could lose everything. Oddly enough, only when “Sinful Sunny” is near does she feel safe—or safe enough to speak up in defense of the girls. The duke’s decadent lifestyle is a disgrace, and clearly he considers Isabel a nuisance. Still, she can’t help admiring his sculpted cheekbones, strong-cut jaw, and tousled chestnut hair. When their lips meet, it’s almost as if he could kiss the secrets right out of her. Worse, she’s tempted to let him. . . .

Love Adam and Isabel
I voluntarily read an Advance Review Copy of this book through Netgalley. This book makes you fall in love with Adam, who because of his two little wards, becomes a better man. In the process he falls in love with the two little girls and Isabel. Unknown to him, Isabel is the mother of the two girls even though she serves as a governess to them. At the time in which this story takes place, women have no rights to their children as they are considered a part of the husband’s property and when her husband died, his family turned her out and took the girls away from her. After their guardian died and they went to live with a distant relative, Isabel became their governess in order to be close to them. The banter between Adam and Isabel is a great read and the book holds your attention to the very end. I thoroughly loved this book, it keeps you attention to the very end. I would highly recommend this book.
