A Midsummer Night's Sin (Blackthorn Brothers)
Synopses & Reviews
Meet the Blackthorn Brothers—three unrepentant scoundrels infamous for being mad, bad and perilous to love.
Handsome as the devil and twice as tempting, Robin "Puck" Blackthorn lives for the pleasures of the moment. His only rule—never dally with an innocent woman. But when an encounter at a masquerade ball leaves him coveting the one woman who refuses to succumb to his charms, Puck realizes that some rules were made to be broken .
Scandalized to discover that the masked man with whom she'd shared a dance—and a forbidden embrace—is in fact the ton's most celebrated rake, Regina Hackett vows to keep her distance. Yet when her cousin vanishes, it is to Puck that Regina must turn. And as they embark on a dangerous journey through London's darkest alleys, Regina will discover that beneath Puck's roguish facade lies a man who will stop at nothing to protect her—or to convince her to take a chance on an unrepentant sinner.
"Michaels's second Blackthorn Brothers Regency (after July 2011's The Taming of the Rake) pairs an heiress with a bastard son of a marquess. Regina Hackett, a shipping merchant's daughter, decides to attend a forbidden masquerade ball with her flighty cousin, Miranda. After Regina is seduced by Robin 'Puck' Goodfellow, she wants to leave, but Miranda is nowhere to be found. Regina enlists Puck's assistance, and soon he learns that Miranda is not the first blonde-haired blue-eyed woman to disappear in London and that the slave trade is still very much alive. Clever banter between Puck and Regina reveals the complexity of Puck's character, while Regina proves herself to be so much more than a simpering debutante. The historical elements of the slave trade and the variety of social prejudices imbue the novel with powerful realism that will keep readers coming back." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
