At birth, Mick Trewlove, the illegitimate son of a duke, was handed over to a commoner. Despite his lowly upbringing, Mick has become a successful businessman, but all his wealth hasn’t satisfied his need for revenge against the man who still won’t acknowledge him. What else can Mick do but destroy the duke’s legitimate son—and woo the heir’s betrothed into his own unloving arms . . .

Orphaned and sheltered, Lady Aslyn Hastings longs for a bit of adventure. With her intended often preoccupied, Aslyn finds herself drawn to a darkly handsome entrepreneur who seems to understand her so well. Surely a lady of her station should avoid Mick Trewlove. If only he weren’t so irresistible . . .

As secrets are about to be exposed, Mick must decide if his plan for vengeance is worth risking what his heart truly desires.

 

PRAISE FOR BEYOND SCANDAL AND DESIRE:

“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.” — Publishers Weekly

“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.” — Booklist/ *STARRED* Review

 

“For the first book in the Sins for All Seasons series, Heath returns to the world of dark London — a world she understands as well as Dickens. Heath illuminates the city’s underbelly with a powerful romance of healing and redemption. Her talents for drawing readers into the era with her well-drawn, three dimensional characters and realistic dialogue sets her novels apart. The unexpected twists and turns of the plot guarantees it will be placed on your keeper shelf.” — RT Book Reviews/ “Top Pick” Review

———————————————–
A satisfying story of love and revenge.
What is there NOT to love about this book!?! One of the best portrayals of a revenge romance trope I’ve ever read, wrapped up in a story of world where birthright means everything, and class distinction is never questioned.
Mick Trewlove is the bastard son of a duke, a man who sent him away to be raised as a commoner as an infant.  Despite his success in business, he still wants revenge against the man.  He plans to ruin the Duke’s legitimate son by stealing his fiance away.
Lady Aslyn Hastings has grown up as ward of the Duke, being orphaned in childhood.  She is betrothed to his son, and has always assumed this would be her fate, until she meets Mick Trewlove and finds herself unable to resist him.
Mick finds his plan at revenge at odds with his growing attraction to Lady Hastings.  He must decide whether love or revenge is most important, in the end.
I highly recommend BEYOND SCANDAL AND DESIRE to lovers of a well-written historical romance.  This story has everything you’d expect from a regency romance, as well as the excellent storytelling by Lorraine Heath.  Can’t wait to see what the rest of the series brings!

Lorraine Heath always dreamed of being a writer. After graduating from the University of Texas, she wrote training manuals, press releases, articles, and computer code, but something was always missing. When she read a romance novel, she not only became hooked on the genre, but quickly realized what her writing lacked: rebels, scoundrels, and rogues. She’s been writing about them ever since. Her work has been recognized with numerous industry awards, including RWA’s prestigious RITA. Her novels have appeared on the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists.
