His perfect revenge…
Young ladies whispered about the Duke of Mondvale in hushed tones, their eyes following his tall, dark figure. For the newly-ostracized Lady Constance Thornton, the Duke is magnetic and desirable. Since her reputation is already ruined in London society, why shouldn't she dance with the scandalous Lord of Sin?
The beautiful and innocent Lady Constance is fun to be sure, but she is also his means to exact revenge. By ruining her, he will have his vengeance against her brother. Except that the Lady is full of surprises... and she could well be the ruin of him.

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... ...more
First I love the cover of this book. Second the name of the book is so apt!

Confession time: I've been waiting for Sins of a Duke since The Irresistible Miss Peppiwell released last year. I love the Calydon series, and when I had the chance to receive and read an ARC of Sins of a Duke, I jumped at it. "Sins" is the story of Sebastian and Anthony's younger sister, Constan... ...more

Sins of a Duke ticked all the boxes for me. I love a period piece, one that can plant me firmly in days gone by, surrounded by the haut monde and all of the social conventions of that time. A strong heroine, standing up for her beliefs, particularly where love is concerned, while maintaining her... ...more

A story of love, loss, lies, deceit and betrayal.
After what Constance had been through these months – the friendship she lost, the cuts from the ton, and not to mention the humiliation she suffered after the truth about her birth came out. Her reputation was s... ...more
I read this in one day and finished it late at night. It was one of those "un-putdown-able" books. There are so many things i want to say so i'm just going to make a list instead:
1) I love me a dark and hunky bad boy who wears glasses. Yes, he wears glasses and pushes it up his nose when he's ner... ...more

„Sins of a Duke“ by Stacy Reid is the 3rd novel in a series called “Scandalous House of Calydon” and I haven’t read the 1st and the 2nd one which could have made the storyline easier in the beginning eventually.
Lady Constance Thornton, short Connie, is young, not even 20 years old but it seems l... ...more
I'd read Stacy Reid Nelson's work long before she joined us here at GIHS and became a friend. You see, my not-so-secret love for historical romance novels has been tested many times. I've switched from Regency to Medieval to Ancient to World War II to... you get the idea. I need a spe... ...more
