View all 10 comments. Adele Ashworth is a new author to me, and if this book is any indication, she will soon be one of my new favourites. Dike book has almost everything needed for a perfect historical romance read: An excellent sense of the era: From beautifully detailed descriptions of the Duke’s home, their clothing and lifestyle, to the depictions of class differences for example, the tea served to the heroine when she attends the Duke’s residence is “a wonderfully strong Lapsang Souch ahworth stars.

From beautifully detailed descriptions of the Duke’s home, their clothing and lifestyle, to the depictions of class differences for example, the tea served to the heroine when she attends the Duke’s residence is “a wonderfully strong Lapsang Souchong. Somewhat unconventional for standard fare, especially when serving to a asgworth of the lower class. The Duke of Trent resides at his country estate.

He is a virtual recluse there, shunned by society after being acquitted of killing his wife. A bit tortured too, with a sad, sad history. Vivian lives in an exile of sorts as well, except hers is of her own making.

She lives quietly as a widow in the village of Penzance and makes her living as a florist. Her secret is that she is not a widow at all. Her ain is just as sad as Will’s. He has something she needs, she has something he wants. And teasing, flirting comments.

And funny, sexy pillow talk. Some excellent steamy bits: A bit of intrigue, blackmail and danger: The prettiest declaration of love I’ve read in quite a while: I know I shouldn’t, but I can’t help myself — here’s part of it, hidden by a spoiler tag. A few cheesy bits of sexy dialogue: I’m not going to tell you here, you’ll know the second you read them which ones they are. Part of this was necessary to the story, but I’m not sure the rest of it served much purpose other than giving the author an opportunity to introduce her Heroes for the rest of the trilogy.

Great couple of guys – they figured out what was going on when the Hero couldn’t, and thus saved him from further asshattery. All in all this was a wonderful book — I’m keeping it, I’ll most likely re-read it, and I’m eagerly anticipating the rest of the series.

Duke of Sin by Adele Ashworth

Add it to a stupid title duek a clinch backcover, and this book isn’t worth it. It got killed with the dukr of plot though. Also, the villany was horribly inept: Get the chick to sleep with the Duke to get a sonnet. They’ll get close and try to do a forgery. Instead, let’s just kidnap her and give the hero THREE days to track me down in my hillbilly secluded cabin. I’m sure to come out unharmed and unpunished!
