Lord Wulfric Bane, the Duke of Westmore knows that blood is thicker than water, that duty is more important than personal desire, and that some things, like falling in love, are never meant to be.

A chance meeting at a sultry club leads to one sinfully explosive night that neither of them can forget.

DUKE OF EVERY SIN by Stacy Reid
Ethan Benedict, Duke of Bainbridge, has been an object of fear, fascination, and salacious gossip for years. To many, his reputation would make him an unlikely savior of a baby left on his doorstep. But Ethan saw the child as perhaps a pathway to redemption. What he did not anticipate was for his jaded heart to soften toward the mysterious young woman who infiltrates his household and secretly cares for the child.
This book features novellas from some of my favorite historical romance authors. Each story is well written and well paced. This is a talent not many authors have but each story in this book shows how masterful these authors are.
While I preferred some stories over others. I mean Stacy Reid can not disappoint, each story is worth a read.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
