Review: Duchess of Sin – Laurel McKee

Blonde and beautiful Lady Anna Blacknall is in the mood for mischief. Entering Dublin’s most notorious den of vice, she finds herself in the arms of a mysterious, emerald-eyed Irishman. And although he is masked, his tender kiss is hauntingly familiar.

Conlan McTeer, Duke of Adair, has come to Dublin to fight for a free Ireland. But he’s suddenly reunited with the young Englishwoman who had once claimed his heart, and his passion turns from politics to pleasure. When their sizzling encounter brings danger to Anna’s door, she must decide where her loyalties lie-and quickly. For someone will do whatever it takes to destroy Conlan . . . and anyone he dares to love.
My thoughts:
This was different, cos usually I read books that take place a bit later, but this was 1799. Ok so that does not sound like a lot, but it was. Not to mention that the setting was Ireland and the fear after the last uprising was still in the air.
Anna flutters from party to ball to anything to live and dance and forget the fears she had 2 years ago. She was interesting as she could seem feather brained at on moment and smart the next. She changed as it suited her.
While Conlan is dark and brooding and wants Ireland to be free, and to able to be Catholics that is what you want. So he works in the open and in secret for that.
They met before and now they meet again. He tries to stay away as he is in danger, while she can’t stay away. Cos hello, hot dark and brooding.
There is danger, passion and will they wont they moments. And I read it cos it takes place near Christmas. So here it was, my xmas book.
Would i read more

    "while she can't stay away. Cos hello, hot dark and brooding."*snort* It's very hard not to be drawn tot he hot, dark, and brooding ones. Like moths to a flame we are:)

    In terms of setting, I prefer to stay in England in this time period or even France for the pomp and circumstance on the ton. If you're to take in in Ireland or Scotland, I want it during medieval times or the dark ages. LOL Don't ask me why, that's just how my mind works.Merry Christmas, I hope you got awesome presents!

    It's amazing what just a few years difference can make. I've been reading some lately that are set just a little closer to present time and it's so neat to see the changes. Haven't read too many from the late 1700s. Definitely checking it out.
