Renowned storyteller Gaelen Foley unfurls the seductive tale of the rakish Lord Alec Knight, who never looked for love–until it was right in front of him. . . .

Lord Alec Knight, the most daring and handsome rogue in all of London, is a smooth-talking aristocrat with an abundance of high-society lady admirers. With his irresistible wit, lucky hand at the gaming tables, and enticing charisma, he can have any woman he wants. But when the only girl he would have considered marrying ties the knot with someone else, Alec realizes he doesn’t want to be with just any lady–he wants to find the love of his life.

The boldly spirited, beautiful Miss Becky Ward takes his life by storm after he rescues her from peril. Alec soon learns that she is on the run from her cousin, the murderous Prince Mikhail Kurkov. Becky has uncovered a menacing secret about the prince–now nothing will stop him from hunting her down. In the midst of danger, Alec and Becky find themselves deeply drawn to each other. After the two spend an all-consuming night of sin, Becky’s knight in shining armor vows on his honor to protect her until the end. But before long, Alec is protecting her with more than honor–and it seems the once untamed rake of London just may have found what he has been searching for all along . . . true love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I swooned for days after finishing this one. It's books like One Night of Sin that make me love romance novels. To put it lightly, Gaelen Foley is a phenomenal writer. Her plots are intricate and captivating and kept me interested throughout. This is the last book (*tear) in the Knight Miscellany and it is Alec's story. Oh Alec!!! I really believed his sincere affections for the heroine, Becky, and his dedication to her had me daydreaming all day long. I am such a sucker for the reformed rake storyline and Alec falls into that category perfectly. The only thing I did not like about him was the fact that he seemed to be suffering from some serious Mommy Issues. There were some Freudian undertones to his character that had me pursing my lips and rolling my eyes. But other than that I think he is definitely one of my favorite heroes of all time. Becky, makes me smile so so much. I loved that within the first fifty pages she had met Alec, and given in to her attraction to him. She did not try and fool herself into believing that she did not want him, or that he did not want her (That was palpable). There are scenes in this book that will stay with me forever. Particularly when Alec must defeat Becky's pervy cousin in a high stakes game of whist that will end in his death if he loses. Becky's reaction coupled with Alec's dedication to honor had me in tears. I wish there were more books like this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Already A Great Summer So Far My summer reading has been filled with delight. But what is even more wonderful than the reading is the fact that out of the mix of great romance novels out there I have picked two that are no-name authors to me. Usually, I stick with Nora Roberts and Danielle Steel, mixed with Janet Evanavich once and a while. However, I was recommended this novel 'ONE NIGHT OF SIN' by Gaelen Foley (Historical)and 'FIRE IN THE ICE' by Katlyn Stewart (contemporary). Surprise-Surprise: Great reading, delicious and romantic. Even more so than I could have imagined. So, This summer is starting off with a fantastic explosion of books. You must get 'ONE NIGHT OF SIN' added to your collection.
