Dear Author's Jayne reviews Lord Sin by Kalen Hughes

It won’t take people long to realize that this book is something different. It’s not just that it isn’t a Regency or that it’s not about vampires and that it doesn’t have any Navy SEALS littering the narrative. It’s a Georgian English historical, and I don’t think there can be too many of those, that features an experienced heroine, and IMO, a hero who might not be as quite strong as she. Yes, what I said.

Mrs Giggles reviews Lord Sin by Kalen Hughes

You see, six years ago when George was still Mrs Lionel Exley, Ivo was besotted with her enough to take part in a duel in order to defend George's honor when she was discovered in the midst of trying to fend off a molester in a party. The resulting death of the horny toad forced Ivo to flee to Paris. He only returns at the start of the story when he becomes the new Earl of Somercote and heir to the Marquis of Tregaron. When he discovers that Mrs Exley is now a widow and from all accounts available to anyone that catches her fancy, he is not amused. After all, he feels, somewhat irrationally but most understandably, that he had given up a big part of his life to defend her honor so he's not happy when he discovers that she hasn't played the role of the celibate virtuous woman he would like to imagine that he has martyred himself for. .

The Romance Reader reviews: Lord Sin by Kalen Hughes

The story is set in England of the late 1780s, but other than a vague reference to aristocratic entertainment and an occasional mention of contemporary Gothic literature, the setting is, at best, undistinguishable; at worst, it is anachronistic. (read more)
