What kind of woman ventures into London's most notorious pleasure club? An outsider like Graciela, the Duchess of Autenberry, snubbed time and time again by society because of her Spanish roots. Ela longs to take a lover for a single, wild night, and within the walls of Sodom there are gentlemen to suit every forbidden taste. If only she were not so drawn to the smoldering Lord Strickland…a dangerous man who sees beyond her mask, and could ruin her reputation with a mere whisper.
Lord Strickland never permitted himself to fantasize about the sultry, off-limits lady, but then he never expected to find Ela in a place so wicked, looking for what he's more than too happy to give. She may not be to the ton's taste, but she suits him perfectly. First, however, he must convince her to trust in this dangerous desire—and in the promise of forever unleashed by one wild, scandalous night.
This book was lot of fun to read! I really enjoyed the first book, and it was so great to read about this group of characters some more! Plus, Sophie Jordan's writing is just fantastic! This was such an enjoyable book!
Let's face it, starting a relationship with your step-son's best friend, is pretty weird. But Ela is pretty young, and it's not like either of them are related. It would've been worse if she'd started that relationship with her step-son!
I really enjoyed the dynamics with Ela and Strickland. Sure, it wasn't conventional, and they both initially didn't want anything permanent or with each other. But that's not how things worked out! And that was so great!
Loved how things worked out! Yes, there was drama and angst, but it worked out. And I'm hopeful for a 3rd book, because it would be really great to spend more time with these characters! Plus, more of them deserve happy endings!
Fantastic, wonderful book, and I really hope we get more, whether a 3rd book in the series, a novella, or another spin off series!
