Publisher’s Description:

The 7th highly anticipated book in the 1797 Club series from USA Today Bestselling Author Jess Michaels is now available!

Matthew Cornwallis, Duke of Tyndale, once loved a woman, but she died in a tragic accident he felt responsible for. Since then, he’s been playing pretend that he isn’t broken inside, even as he’s seen as London’s most sought after bachelor. He decides to drown his sorrows at the notorious Donville Masquerade where he encounters an alluring stranger who he spends the night with.

Mrs. Isabel Hayes was married once to a man who did not inspire passion and she’s been curious ever since. She has no intention of taking a lover at the Donville Masquerade, but to watch the activities there, just as she has been for weeks. But once the masked stranger pursues her, she is swept away.

Soon Isabel recognizes her lover for who he really is and realizes a terrible truth. She is the cousin of the woman he once loved and lost, and her family blames him for what happened. Driven by the passion they’ve shared, but also repelled by the stories she’s heard, Isabel continues the affair, trying to find the truth. But once Matthew realizes her identity, will he pursue her for what they’ve built, or only because she reminds him of what he lost? And will he survive to share a life with her at all?

Length: Full-length novel
Heat Level: Unbridled passion and a lot of it.

This book is part of a series (The 1797 Club), but can be read as a standalone book.

My Thoughts:

This has been a wonderfully written series to date. I of course have my favorites among our illustrious crew of Dukes and Michael has just made the list.

Our hero has spent the last three years totally saddened by the loss of his betrothed in an accident that caused her death. Although her drowning was accidental he feels responsible and has not pursued any woman since.
Our heroine was married off by her father to a man who never inspired passion. Now that he is dead she seeks knowledge that was never imparted by him. Having been widowed now for eighteen months she has been attending the scandalous Donville Masquerade just to watch. That is until she happens upon a man who saves her from a lout with dishonorable intentions.

What will happen when Isabel discovers that her hero is none other than her deceased cousin’s intended and the man that her uncle holds totally responsible for his daughter’s death?

Will her uncle’s scheming be the end for them or will it lead to something else?

I gave this newest edition of the 1797 club series 5 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 4.75 of 5 flames. The intimacy between our hero and heroine is scorching hot.
Jess Michaels has hit a home run with this one.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher/author to read for review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I have read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

Two beautiful sisters – one an illegitimate governess, the other a celebrated debutante – compete for love amidst the scandal and intrigue of a Regency London Season.

Lissa Hazlett lives life in the shadows. The beautiful, unacknowledged daughter of Viscount Partington earns her living as drudge to the social climbing Lamonts while her vain and spoiled half sister, Araminta, enjoys London’s social whirl as its most feted debutante.

When Lissa’s rare talent as a portraitist brings her unexpectedly into the bosom of society – and into the midst of a scandal involving Araminta and suspected English traitor Lord Debenham – she finds an unlikely ally: charming and besotted Ralph Tunley, Lord Debenham’s underpaid, enterprising secretary. Ralph can’t afford to leave the employ of the villainous viscount much less keep a wife but as an accepted member of the ton he can help Lissa cleverly navigate a perilous web of lies that will ensure everyone gets what they deserve.

THE MYSTERIOUS GOVERNESS is Book 3 in the Daughters of Sin series but can be read as a stand-alone as it features the sibling rivalry between Viscount Partington’s two nobly-born and three illegitimate daughters from a completely different perspective.

Heat rating: sensual.

The Daughters of Sin series has been described as a Regency-set ‘Dynasty’.

What readers are saying:

“The storyline is uniquely designed, and cleverly executed. Spies, traitors, deception, betrayal, mystery, suspense and romance, bring together an intriguing Regency Romance, with many twists and turns, and an abundance of adventure”~Amazon customer.

“Magnificent and mesmerising.” ~Amazon customer.

Publisher’s Description:

She was determined to secure the succession, he was in it for the pleasure. Falling in love was not part of the arrangement.

When dashing twenty-five-year-old Stephen Cranbourne arrives at the estate he will one day inherit, it’s expected he will make a match with his beautiful second cousin, Araminta.

But while proud, fiery Araminta and her shy, plain sister, Hetty, parade their very different charms before him, it’s their mother, Sybil, a lonely and discarded wife, who evokes first his sympathy and then stokes his lustful fires.

As Stephen introduces Sybil to every pleasure she’s been deprived of, duty and passion become a deep and mutual love. But with the unexpected arrival of a contender to the estate, Sybil realises that what she’s set in motion to save the family might have tragic consequences.

Her Gilded Prison is Book 1 in the Daughters of Sin series, a Regency-set ‘Dynasty’ that follows the sibling rivalry between Viscount Partington’s two nobly-born and his illegitimate daughters as they compete for love during a London Season. Her Gilded Prison can, however, be read as a stand-alone.
