For years, he's been an object of fear, fascination . . . and fantasy. But of all the wicked rumors that shadow the formidable Alexander Moncrieffe, Duke of Falconbridge, the ton knows one thing for certain: only fools dare cross him. And when Ian Eversea does just that, Moncrieffe knows the perfect revenge: he'll seduce Ian's innocent sister, Genevieve—the only Eversea as yet untouched by scandal. First he'll capture her heart . . . and then he'll break it. But everything about Genevieve is unexpected: the passion simmering beneath her cool control, the sharp wit tempered by gentleness . . . And though Genevieve has heard the whispers about the duke's dark past, and knows she trifles with him at her peril, one incendiary kiss tempts her deeper into a world of extraordinary sensuality. Until Genevieve is faced with a fateful choice . . . is there anything she won't do for a duke?

Fantastic book. I loved the slowly growing romance between Alex and Genevieve and the small little sarcastic remarks they would make that would surprise each other. The ending was great. I would recommend this book.
I did not read the other books from the same series. I started with this one (caught my attention, unlike the others). Cannot be read as standalone. It was not like I was completely lost, but I think it is better to start with Nr. 1.I did not like:- The love-triangle: which extends until the final p...
This is one of the best historical romances I have read. Up there with my top 5 From the first meeting between the Duke and Genevieve I was hooked. Their banter back and forth was entertaining and funny, and added to the slow build of sexual tension and love. I like when I read these books that I ...
I have to say, this series has been rather hit, miss, blah for me. Luckily this one was a hit. I highly enjoyed the main characters, and the secondary characters too actually. The plot was one that I have yet to have read in the 168 historical romance novels I have read since I started keeping track...
