The notorious lady's secret may be safe with the charming, seductive rogue...but her heart is in serious danger.

Lady Charlotte Hughes lives a double life. By day, she is the plain, demure sister of a domineering brother who wants her married and out of the way. By night, she is Lottie English, an intoxicating, glamorous woman of mystery—a famed opera singer who drives men wild with wanting her. But the only man Charlotte wants is Colin Ramsey, Duke of Newark, though the dashing nobleman would certainly never risk his reputation on a woman like her. Imagine her shock, then, when the duke reveals himself as a smitten fan...and, while attempting to seduce her, inadvertently discovers her true identity.

Charlotte will submit to the handsome duke's every wish, but only as his wife—a proposal Colin eagerly accepts. But his secret duty to the Crown—to expose Charlotte's nemesis—threatens the fiery, very real passion that consumes them. And when Charlotte herself is suddenly imperiled, Colin must choose where his loyalties lie—and risk everything for the remarkable lady who has so thoroughly captured his heart.

Guest Reviewer Madeline Stewart: Five Stars

It took quite some time to find this book. Adele Ashworth was amazing with the Duke of Sin. However, The Duke of Indiscretion captured my attention from Page 1. The storyline was intriguing and enigmatic. No love at first sight or steamy sexual encounters to begin with.

The author brought her characters–the noble Duke of Newark and the mysterious Lady Charlotte Hughes–together perfectly. Ashworth did not disappoint by creating the sensuous relationship between the characters in a well-paced manner, which allowed time for the reader to get emotionally involved.

Awesome story. Great work, Ashworth!

 

About the Reviewer:

Madeline Stewart admits to loving the “classics” of romance, which often means novels in print from the 80s through 90s. That was the era of Fabio, portrait-style covers, and very satisfying happily ever afters. When she’s not reading, she eats invisible food prepared by her grandson, cuddles with her husband, and cooks amazing Jamaican food.
