    A digital copy generously provided by the author Stacy Reid in exchange for an honest review Thank you so much, Ms Stacy I love historical romance And this book totally sealed the deal for me It was soo good Once again, I was reminded of my college days when I was so attached with the Dukes, Earls, Lords, and other historical romance characters So nostalgic Anyways, this book is the third installment of the companion series Scandalous House of Calydon I have been following this series since the books were released and I could say that once again, Stacy Reid did not disappoint me The story centers on the beautiful character Constance or Connie , the younger sister of Sebastian and Anthony who were featured in the previous books She fell instantly in love with the Lord of Sins Lucan Devlin Wynwood Duke of Mondvale the moment she first laid her eyes on him in a certain midnight ball One night was all it took for her to realize that Lucan was her ideal man the man she wanted to marry But then, Lucan had raging feelings for his family, for Sebastian, in particular, that s why in order to plot a revenge, he invited her to go out with him, make her fall in love, and basically leave her alone afterwards.The book was somewhat a heavy and emotional kind of story While Lucan was determined to avenge his sister by hurting Constance, he found himself slowly developing feelings for her And this j...

    There s revenge, and there s revenge This story was revenge, the kind that you know will only bring immense heartache and possible irreparable damage The kind that many would label as unforgivable.That was me Even though I knew what Lucan was doing, even though I could see what was coming, my heart broke and I hated him I hated his need for vengeance by using an innocent I hated him for making himself approachable and loveable to a woman whose only crime was being related to the man Lucan believed wronged his own sister.I didn t want Constance to forgive him, didn t want her to still love him after what he d done But she did It might be fiction, but maybe her actions speak of her character than mine do of me Forgiveness is not something I give easily Yes, I carry grudges Yes, I cut people out of my life who bring nothing but grief and strife So perhaps I can learn something from her.Maybe.It was hard to admire a man who took it upon himself to ruin a lovely woman like Constance The whispers he started about her parentage and his single minded goal of destroying Constance s brother by ruining ...

    First I love the cover of this book Second the name of the book is so apt Sins of a Duke was a wonderful romance of revenge and love, pain and forgiveness, with two characters that were absolutely perfect for each other Lady Constance was strength and innocence in one beautiful package, and The Duke of Mondvale also known as the Lord of Sin was a dark hero, tortured, revenge driven, and utterly intriguing I really loved his character even when I wanted to slap him silly, I was mooning over him Mondvale sat splayed in the most insolent manner, his cravat undone, a glass of champagne dangling loosely from his hand She could sense the leashed power of his personality beneath the casual fa ade he presented I think this was where I started to fall in love I love a good, powerful duke Then she couldn t look away from him, awed by the ruthless beauty of his face High cheekbones intensified the aristocratic cast of his features, and cruel sensuality curved the hard line of his mouth Really I fell in love and then I started to learn about the pain and rage that was driving him to seek vengeance At first I scream HELL NO Constance is all that is sweet what the heck Then I started to feel Lucan s pain and while I did not agree with his method at ALL, I empathized with him I enjoyed both Constance aka Connie and Lucan character equally Constance was so sweet but fiery But her fieriness wa...

    Sweet and simple despite the angsty storyThere is just one paragraph where you get a real sense of Constance as a characterwhen she talks about meeting the little orphan boy on her walks in the countryside.that is all the character development Ms Reid attempts.she focuses too much on telling the story instead of allowing the reader to experience it.....

    This book could have been the traditional revenge story line, however it sparkles with great characters and depth While Lucan was intent on extracting revenge on the Duke of Calydon for the mistreatment of his sister, he falls victim to his own plans.Watching a devilish Duke change is a concept well covered in historical romance novels I had to think about what exactly made this book work so well It s not the typical trope trotted out I think it was so good because Lucan had a conscious From the start Constance was a revelation She captured him and didn t let go Lucan battled with reason and emotions to continue his plans to ruin Constance which he had already put in motion before he met her , but once he saw the damage to her it changed him.This story is so much than a rogue and an ing nue falling in love With elements of Romeo and Juliet and revenge, the story draws heavily on the emotions of the characters Lucan was so well developed He wields his power to cause harm and once his heart has been touched, he moves heaven and earth to help I think what I liked so much about the story was the revelation of Lucan While he was definitely still a bad boy, with his naughty dialogue and plans, he became tamed by his love for Constance Constance is the illegitimate daughter of a Duke and the status of her birth has been leaked to the ton She is isolated and scorned by those that she once called friends To watch her mourn her previous life and then to be set fre...

    3.5 stars I will take some of your darkness and give you my light The Duke of Mondvale isn t called the Lord of Sin for no reason He is a notorious libertine, the kind of man that she, with her already tarnished reputation, shall avoid Yet Lady Constance Calydon still finds herself drawn to him, his charisma, his mysteriousness.Lady Constance is the perfect instrument for the Duke of Mondvale s revenge against the man who ruined her sister Even , Lady Constance has made things easier for him because she responds to him But what started out as a quest for vengeance became something as he finds himself falling for Lady Constance Later on, he has to make an inevitable decision to ruin Lady Constance as his retaliation or to forget about it and just walk away.Another crappy summary brought to you by yours truly I really wanted to just get on with my thoughts about the book so please cut me some slack.This book infuriated the hell out of me in a good way For a book to be able to elicit such emotion from me, I think it s good because it makes the book unforgettable I also found it a wonder how a book managed to make me react like I did with this one With the characters, I just had to let this out I HATE CONTANCE S MOTHER I know t...
