GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: Duchess of Sin by Laurel McKee

Description

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
LOVED IT

Although this is the second book in a trilogy, I really think it can stand alone.  I had no problem getting into the story and was enchanted right from the start.  I must admit that when someone is kissed by another person who is wearing a mask, I know where this story is going.  Seriously, this can only work in a historical romance.  So when Anna is kissed by Conlan, you can only know that there is going to a lot of hotness to follow.  The plot works on a lot of levels with a bit of mystery and thrills built in.  This one will definitely keep you warm on a cold winter night.

    9. Fact One: Laurel McKee is none other than an author whose books I already read, Amanda McCabe.

      Fact Two: "Duchess of Sin" is the second book of a trilogy . . . therefore, must go to the bookstore and get the first book of the series, "Countess of Scandal". (collect all the books of a series before reading them consecutively)
