About the book

Adam Fairfax, the Duke of Sunderford, happily enjoys a different woman (or two) every night—or he did, until his wards landed on his doorstep. Ever since Sunny took in the seven-year-old twin girls and their prim and proper governess, Isabel Finch, his love life has been a shambles. But, as time goes by, Sunny catches himself getting lost in Isabel’s haughty blue eyes, or following the curves beneath her unbecoming dress. An unexpected kiss ignites a passion that shocks him into realizing how thin the line between love and hate can be.

If Isabel’s hidden past were revealed, she could lose everything. Oddly enough, only when “Sinful Sunny” is near does she feel safe—or safe enough to speak up in defense of the girls. The duke’s decadent lifestyle is a disgrace, and clearly he considers Isabel a nuisance. Still, she can’t help admiring his sculpted cheekbones, strong-cut jaw, and tousled chestnut hair. When their lips meet, it’s almost as if he could kiss the secrets right out of her. Worse, she’s tempted to let him. . . .

My Thoughts

This was my first book from Diana Quincy and it definitely won’t be my last! I have to admit I had my doubts if I would enjoy this book because Sunny was so unlikeable at the beginning but hands down to Ms. Quincy for writing such an amazing character. It was actually really nice to see such a manwhore make a turnaround that came about gradually and wasn’t instantaneous just because he fell for a pretty face. He really was such a jerk when his two wards show up and I swear he really needed a swift kick in the rear. Not to mention the comments he makes to Finch and even when he wasn’t trying to be rude he still managed to stick his foot in his mouth. So believe me once he started to change and his two wards worked their way into his heart it really tugged at my heart strings. It was just so sweet to watch and I liked seeing how his relationship develops with his wards, Prudence and Patience, that is separate from his relationship with Finch.

Sunny’s relationship with Finch evolved very nicely and I loved that it wasn’t instalove and we get to see Sunny and Finch go from genuinely despising each other to understanding each other and eventually falling in love. The twist at the end was unexpected but entirely satisfying. This was such a wonderful romance that I highly suggest!
