Duchess of Sin by Laurel Mckee Tour & Giveaway

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 lie-and quickly. For someone will do whatever it takes to destroy Conlan . . . and anyone he dares to love.


Every once in a while, I hunger for a historical romance.  I love reading the history and how the people dressed and lived.  Laurel McKee does a wonderful job of painting the turmoil of the times as well as staying true to her characters.  Did I fall in love with them? No, but I respected their choices and I really wanted them to find their happy ending.  I am one of those people who not only love strong Alpha males, but I want my heroine to be strong too - not some simpy girl.  Anna is a strong character, but she's very likeable - personable.  I really enjoyed this novel, and although it is the second in the series, it reads as a stand alone.  Not to say you won't want to rush out and get the first in the series after you read this one!!


LAUREL McKEE lives in Oklahoma with a menagerie of two cats, a Pug, and a bossy miniature poodle. She loves dance classes, collecting cheesy travel souvenirs, and watching the Food Network-even though she doesn't cook. Writing as Amanda McCabe, her books have been nominated for many awards, including the RITA Award, the Romantic Times BOOKReviews Reviewers' Choice Award, the Booksellers Best, the National Readers Choice Award, and the Holt Medallion.
