About The Book
Proud Scot and Fallen co-owner, Lord Iain ‘Vice’ Vissen is dedicated to performing in and producing the pleasure club’s hedonistic shows. Until the night he apprehends a rogue footman in their midst and discovers the spy is Lady Mairi MacNair—the woman who long ago broke his heart.
Born an earl’s daughter but now a seamstress, Mairi has returned to London to help open a superior pleasure club to Fallen, and finally realize her dream of being the seductive leading lady. But when she discovers her main rival is Iain, the man she loved beyond reason and was forced to abandon, she is soon caught in a web of lies, secrets, and raw, scorching passion that time hasn’t dimmed…
Each book in the Fallen series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.
The Seduction of Viscount Vice is the last of the trilogy here and I had such a fun time with this finale, and even though its my least favorite installment of the three, there was still quite a bit of enjoyment to be found in this book. This was such a fun quick easy read though, and I really enjoyed seeing Vice finally get his HEA. I really liked the depth we see of the story here, and it was quite interesting to see this pairing’s dynamic. Our main featurettes are Lord Iain and Mairi. Mairi and Ian once were in love when they were young youth, but then Mairi was forced on the run and to hide in Paris. But now circumstances have led her back to London and is posing as a male servant in the pleasure club of Fallen, but Iain recognizes her and soon the past and present are forced to collide. I really enjoyed the element of secrets and intrigue and the heroine having to pose as a man in certain aspects of the story. I absolutely adored the hero, who set such healthy boundaries and insisted on integrity between them and those secrets had no place. We really see how Mairi has to come to terms with the secrets she has had to keep and decide if the love she has for Iain is worth it. I really love it when I see a hero stand up to the heroine, we don’t see it enough in my opinion. There is a lot of steamy scenes in this one, so if you like some hot and smexy moments, you will definitely be satisfied with this one here. I do think the narrator is brilliant for these books and really handles the moments between these characters so well. If you are wanting to explore historical erotic romance more, I recommend this author and most especially this series.

Rating of the Book
Simmering cup of tea—soft warm touches and light intimacy
Warmin’ by the fire- a medium level of sexual tension, a balance of sexual and emotional intimacy, lighter on the details in the sexual moments.
Steamin’ up the room -the sexual content is more explicit in the language and tone, heavier amount of sexual scenes.
Blazing fire to the building-The prime focus is the sex scenes, scorching hot, and could burn one. Less focus on the emotional intimacy to the relationship.
