A Scoundrel by Moonlight (Sons of Sins #4)
Grand Central Publishing / April 28, 2015 / $8.00 print, $7.99 digital
Anything can happen in the moonlight . . .
Justice. That's all Nell Trim wants-for her sister and for the countless other young women the Marquess of Leath has ruined with his wildly seductive ways. Now she has a bold plan to take him down . . . as long as she can resist the scoundrel's temptations herself.
From the moment Nell meets James Fairbrother, the air positively sizzles. Yet for all his size and power, there's something amazingly tender in his touch. Could he really be such a depraved rogue? The only way to find out is to beat the devil at his own game . . . one tempting kiss at a time.
Deception is a theme in many romances, and for a reason. If a relationship starts in dishonesty, how can the two lovers get to the place of vulnerability required to form a life-long bond? An important question to be sure, and Anna Campbell plays with multiple levels of this in A Scoundrel by Moonlight, the fourth entry in her Sons of Sin series.
Eleanor Trim, commonly known as Nell (and pay attention to names here, as Campbell plays them like a maestro) makes a promise to her dying half-sister, Dorothy; Nell will find the heartless rake who seduced and ruined Dorothy and make him pay. Not only for his crimes against Dorothy. Oh no, nothing as straightforward as that. The Marquess of Leath, as Dorthy names him, has an entire diary, detailing the multiple girls he’s ruined, and of his pride in doing so. Dorothy wants Nell to find this book and make it public, thus bringing about Leath’s ruin for revenge. She’s a brave one, our Nell, so Dorothy can rest easy. Nell’s in.
[So, let the plotting begin.]
