When Wicked Comes Calling...
When a mysterious stranger finds his way into her bedchamber and offers his help in landing a duke, Lady Felicity Faircloth agrees—on one condition. She's seen enough of the world to believe in passion, and won't accept a marriage without it.
The Wallflower Makes a Dangerous Bargain...
Bastard son of a duke and king of London's dark streets, Devil has spent a lifetime wielding power and seizing opportunity, and the spinster wallflower is everything he needs to exact a revenge years in the making. All he must do is turn the plain little mouse into an irresistible temptress, set his trap, and destroy his enemy.
For the Promise of Passion...
But there's nothing plain about Felicity Faircloth, who quickly decides she'd rather have Devil than another. Soon, Devil's carefully laid plans are in chaos, and he must choose between everything he's ever wanted...and the only thing he's ever desired.

Quick Thoughts: This is my first 5 star (new) read for me this year. Y’all I am on book 95! I feel like that says enough about this but in case you need more: The Bastards are darn sexy, Felicity reminds me of well me, and finally the whole thing is going to lead to a Beast in book 2 who can whistle. I am in a puddle on the floor!
Audio Thoughts: I love when Justine Eyre narrates Sarah’s books (and she does a bunch of them). You just can’t go wrong!
