Anything can happen in the moonlight . . .

Justice. That's all Nell Trim wants-for her sister and for the countless other young women the Marquess of Leath has ruined with his wildly seductive ways. Now she has a bold plan to take him down . . . as long as she can resist the scoundrel's temptations herself.

From the moment Nell meets James Fairbrother, the air positively sizzles. Yet for all his size and power, there's something amazingly tender in his touch. Could he really be such a depraved rogue? The only way to find out is to beat the devil at his own game . . . one tempting kiss at a time.

A Scoundrel in Moonlight is the last book ini the Sons of Sin series. The Sons of Sins, are four close friends who help each other especially when it comes to the women they love and certain villains that attempt to destroy them. Our hero of this show, Maruess of Leath, is honorable but has had to pick up the pieces for the crimes especially morally from his uncle who destroyed many innocents ruined and with bastard children. But when his mother has a new companion, James is distrustful about her, because he can sense that she is not everything she claims to be. Nell Trim is on a important mission, our for justice for her sister who died giving childbirth, to get justice against the man who ruined her. Nell was told it was the Marquess of Leath, but the more she gets to know him, she doubts her sisters word, because James is honorable and she can’t imagine him ruining countless women’s lives. But the truth comes out, James is understand of the reasons behind Nell’s distrust, but he will have to win her heart and trust, but also the belief that they can have a future together no matter her upbringing.

She hadn’t come to Yorkshire to pursue a lifelong career as a domestic servant. She’d arrived on a quest that had taken so many turns since that she hardly remembered where she’s started.

She stayed.

Because she couldn’t bear to leave.

I simply adored reading this book, it was a fantastic romance and I had a blast with the characters. Anna Campbell is a fantastic author, and since she has gone indie hasn’t written any full length novels since this book, and I was pleased to find how much I fell for this book and her wonderful writing. If you enjoy historical romance, and want a author that is fresh and witty….this author is a must for y’all. I honestly can’t get enough of her work and this series has been a thrill to read. Especially the way she writes the heroes, they are mouthwatering sexiness that romance readers desire. Our hero for this book, is more of a beta hero. He is protective but is honorable and true. He is also a wonderful and nice guy, I love how forgiving he was of Nell. He was hurt that she kept secrets from him, but didn’t hold it against her since he understands why she kept secrets from him. I love how he is able to look at the bigger picture and not dwell too much on small things that don’t matter for the long term. You also see how he fights for the woman he loves, especially when she is full speed ahead against the idea of marriage since she doesn’t want to bring him scandal to his name. Our heroine is a fighter too, she could be a bit too stubborn at times but I did like seeing her determination and commitment to finding the man behind ruining her sister.

The romance between these two was simply wonderful. I enjoyed seeing their battle of wills, the fun dialogue that builds between them and the powerful chemistry and boy some of the kissing scenes are swoon worthy. The humor was witty and fun and made me remember why I love this author’s style of writing so much. We also see the way that these two just sizzle, their chemistry just builds and builds and I love seeing them go back and forth. We also get to see the close friendships that we see between the four men and their wives. I loved their bantering and close knit ties to each other. They may not be related, but they are as close as brothers.

Overall a simply wonderful romance that crackles and sizzles with chemistry, a couple that have to overcome distrust and lies to find the real villain, and along the way discover their love is worth fighting for. A FANTASTIC ROMANCE

    I loved this series too, Renee. I’m not sure whether you are aware that there is also a novella in this series. Three Proposals and a Scandal is Marianne Seaton’s story. She is the lady that Cam jilted and the hero, Elias, is Pen’s brother.

    I have read and enjoyed several of her Dashing Widows series but I hope she goes back to writing a full-length series soon.

    • Lover Of Romance

      It is a good series right? I didn’t know about the novella, so I will need to check it out. I need to read the dashing widows, but I am not a huge fan of novella’s series, but since I love this author so much I will end up reading them hehe I am like you though, I am really hoping that she goes back to full length books soon.
