Review
  • /* Starred Review */ It simply isn’t fair. Mick Trewlove is every bit as much the duke of Hedley’s son as the earl of Kipwick is. But because Mick was born on the wrong side of the blanket, he was given away as a newborn baby by the duke, who still refuses to acknowledge his existence. Meanwhile, Kipwick, the duke’s legitimate heir, has been given everything he could ever want in life. Well, all this is about to change. It has taken time for Mick to become one of London’s most successful and wealthiest businessmen, but now he is going to use every weapon he has at his disposal to take everything Kipwick holds dear away from him, starting with his intended fiancée, Lady Aslyn Hastings. RITA Award–winner Heath’s new Sins for All Seasons series is off to an impressive start with an unforgettable, emotionally charged love story that will dazzle and delight readers with its exquisitely crafted characters, deliciously sensual romance, and impeccably rendered historical setting. -- Charles, John (Reviewed 12/15/2017) (Booklist, vol 114, number 8, p90)
  • Heath (the Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James series) launches a winning and steamy Victorian series featuring a family of highborn bastards who seek financial and social success, presumably all finding love along the way. Entrepreneur Mick Trewlove, the illegitimate son of the Duke of Hedley, has spent years plotting to bring down his half-brother, the Earl of Kipwick. In addition to ruining him financially, Mick plans to seduce Kipwick’s naive and sheltered fiancée, Lady Aslyn Hastings. But Mick quickly realizes that he’d prefer a more honorable union with Aslyn. She yearns for a brighter, more exciting life than what she can hope for with Kipwick, whom she loves as a brother. Mick must decide whether he should abandon all his plans in favor of earning Aslyn’s respect and love. The premise of this story isn’t particularly complicated, but Heath builds a community of fascinating, intertwined characters that readers will be eager to get to know as they cheer for the driven hero and the spunky, smart heroine. (Feb.) --Staff (Reviewed 11/27/2017) (Publishers Weekly, vol 264, issue 48, p)
  • For years, Mick Trewlove's anger at his illegitimate birth and abandonment by his noble father has festered. Now a wealthy entrepreneur, Nick hopes that he might at last be acknowledged. But when the Duke of Hedley ignores his requests, Mick decides to exact his revenge by bringing down his legitimate half-brother, the duke's heir, and ruining his intended bride, Lady Aslyn Hastings. It's a perfect setup—until Mick's feelings for Aslyn get out of hand and a stunning plot twist turns everything upside down. VERDICT Carefully researched details, a fascinating look into the baby-farming scandals of the period, and a wealth of intriguing bastards make this steamy, cleverly plotted Victorian a perfect start to a rollicking series. Heath (An Affair with a Notorious Heiress) lives in Plano, TX. --Kristin Ramsdell (Reviewed 02/15/2018) (Library Journal, vol 143, issue 3, p48)
