Review for Duke of Sin
Author: Adele Ashworth
Date of Review: 11/21/04
Reviewed by: MaryGrace Meloche

Reviewer Comments: Adele Ashworth’s newest release is an easy read – no intense brain power required. However, in the romance department it lacked strength. Oh, there is sex, but no spark. There is a mystery, but no depth. Yes, I read it, but I was disappointed. Although Adele Ashworth is a good author and her writing style is very pleasant, Duke of Sin was just ordinary.

Lady Vivian Rael-Lamont hides away in southern Cornwall. She lives a quiet life, growing beautiful flowers for the local community. She lives a lie.

William Raleigh, the Duke of Trent hides away at his Cornwall estate, Morning House. He lives his life avoiding society. He is a murderer, or is he?

Adele Ashworth tries to create a cloak and dagger scheme surrounding the death of William’s wife, a scheme that includes the widow Rael-Lamont. However, the author reveals her cards far too early, thus, making the story weak and empty. Instead, for this reader, the story’s “mystery” surrounds the physical innocence of Vivian Rael-Lamont! From the start, a sexual firmness ruled this inexperienced lady’s bedroom conduct! Supposedly reserved and pure, Vivian knew what she wanted and she got it! The story’s “riddle” -- believing such a sexually aggressive thirty-five-year-old woman would enter William’s life and be inexperienced!

Sorry, although Duke of Sin is a pleasant read, the story is inadequate.

  • Overall Rating: C+
  • Overall Sensuality: Anemic
  • Overall Sexuality: Hot.
