For years, Mick Trewlove's anger at his illegitimate birth and abandonment by his noble father has festered. Now a wealthy entrepreneur, Nick hopes that he might at last be acknowledged. But when the Duke of Hedley ignores his requests, Mick decides to exact his revenge by bringing down his legitimate half-brother, the duke's heir, and ruining his intended bride, Lady Aslyn Hastings. It's a perfect setup—until Mick's feelings for Aslyn get out of hand and a stunning plot twist turns everything upside down.
VERDICT Carefully researched details, a fascinating look into the baby-farming scandals of the period, and a wealth of intriguing bastards make this steamy, cleverly plotted Victorian a perfect start to a rollicking series. Heath (An Affair with a Notorious Heiress) lives in Plano, TX.
