about

She works to live . . .

One would think the last place a beauty like Fallon O'Rourke could keep her virtue was in the Mayfair mansion of London's most licentious duke, the notorious Dominic Hale. Yet Fallon—who's endured nothing but lecherous advances since her father's tragic death—is perfectly safe there . . . disguised as a footman! Beneath the notice of the dark-haired devil with his smoldering blue eyes and sinful smile, Fallon never imagines her secret will be discovered. But how long can her deception last when she begins to wish she is one of the many women traipsing in and out of the sinful rogue's bedchamber?

He lives to sin . . .

Most men envy the duke, never suspecting his pleasure-loving ways are a desperate attempt to escape, however briefly, the pain of a past that's left him with a heart of stone. Only one woman can break down his defenses. Only one woman can win his love . . . if she reveals her secret and succumbs to the sins of the wicked duke.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.5 stars This book had a lot of tropes that are predictable, yet so much fun to read about, especially in a historical romance. The heroine dresses as a man and works as a footman, eventually valet, in the hero's household. I've read similar books with the same trope because I enjoy it a lot. It's cliche, but it doesn't diminish the fun. In fact, the cliche trope heightened my anticipation. It was a little depressing in the sense that both the hero and heroine were abused when they were kids. They are both filled with anger and bitterness which really affected their lives and the decisions they made. I neither hated nor loved them; they never inspired me to really cheer for them. But they had undeniable chemistry and their story was interesting enough for me to keep reading. To be quite honest, I had a hard time understanding exactly how Fallon fell in love with Dominic. She fell for him even before she found out that he was hiding a lot behind his wicked persona. She was also way too obsessed with his tattoo lol. Dominic also abruptly changed his ways after one kiss with Fallon, which felt so unrealistic. They were both so depressing though, each ensnared by bitterness and anger. I couldn't blame Fallon for her anger and bitterness, but at the same time, I thought she acted too recklessly and was too impulsive in making decisions. I also couldn't blame Dominic for his anger and bitterness, but it took him way too long to finally take a step towards his grandfather. Similarly, it took Fallon too long to realize that her anger was pushing her to make terrible decisions about her life. More importantly, I failed to feel an emotional connection with either hero or heroine. That's really where the story fell through for me. Otherwise, it was a pretty decent book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great read Enjoyed Fallon and her determination for her dream of a home of her own. Dominic on the other hand was well deserving of the title of the devil duke
