Review and Giveaway! DUCHESS OF SIN by Laurel McKee

63905776From the back of the book:

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 lit – and quickly. For someone will do whatever it takes to destroy Conlan…and anyone he dares to love.

DUCHESS OF SIN is the second book in the Daughters of Erin trilogy. (Book #1 is COUNTESS OF SCANDAL) The thing that sticks out the most for me is the history included in this book. I love how real facts are woven into the fictional love story. Conlan is the ultimate alpha. He takes care of his people and does what he believes right no matter what others think. His immediate feelings for Anna, wanting to protect her and keep her safe, are very sexy. Anna is an interesting character. She pretends to be a bit of society fluff, but is really so much more. The romance between these two if full of obstacles. I loved reading how they overcome them and find their true place with each other. The writing is fantastic and flows perfectly. I loved the story from beginning to end!

    Sounds good, especially the Dublin part since I love Ireland. And I’m in the mood for a good alpha!
