I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for a fair and honest review.
Summary- Proud Scot and Fallen co-owner, Lord Iain ‘Vice’ Vissen is dedicated to performing in and producing the pleasure club’s hedonistic shows. Until the night he apprehends a rogue footman in their midst and discovers the spy is Lady Mairi MacNair—the woman who long ago broke his heart.
Born an earl’s daughter but now a seamstress, Mairi has returned to London to help open a superior pleasure club to Fallen, and finally realize her dream of being the seductive leading lady. But when she discovers her main rival is Iain, the man she loved beyond reason and was forced to abandon, she is soon caught in a web of lies, secrets, and raw, scorching passion that time hasn’t dimmed…
Review- I had read and reviewed the first two books in the Fallen series. All three books can be read as a stand alone and in any order. So I was super excited to get a copy of this book.
This book picks up where the last one left off in that they are in middle of a midsummers eve party So if you read The Devil’s Submission (which omg you need to ….go get it now, I’ll wait.) it’s right around that time frame. This book about Vice who is the master and star of all the productions at Fallen, in other words he loves to fuck on stage and be watched, he certainly had my attention. Some years ago Viscount Vissen or Vice fell in love with Lady Mairi MacNair who is the daughter of an Earl, he was love while Mairi just wanted an out from her engagement to some other lord and used Vice to ruin her which didn’t go as planned so she ran off to Paris.
Years later she’s returned and is spying on Fallen only to be caught By Vice and this when things heat up. I will say this anytime the heroine threatens or latterly smacks some sense into the hero I am all for it. Lady Mairi kneed him in the balls…. Now you might think that is brutal, and yes it is but I kind of love when something like that happens between the hero and heroine. The friendship in this book is just amazing, you have female friendship, Grace and Eliza meet Mairi while they out shopping and are instantly like “you’re one of us now, so you are coming to dinner” and the male friendship/brother like bond between Sin, Devil and Vice is just wonderful I loved it so much and I can picture them years from now as old men sitting around gossiping. So if this is your thing then this book has it.
I really wish this book had more sex in it, there I said it. The sex they had in front of the window…. Oh yes you read that right. It was hella hot and sexy and I need more. Over all this book was good and I gave it 5 stars on goodread. I was however slightly disappointed because I wanted a little more, so I went back and looked up the lengths of each book
Surrender to Sin was 107 pgs long- admittedly not my favorite book in the series but I liked it
The Devil’s submission was only 83 pgs long. How could this be??? This book was everything!
The Seduction of Viscount Vice is also 107 pgs. As well.
This is what happens when a book or novella is good, I mean really good it can never be long enough. Because you never want it to end.
This book is $1.99 which is perfect price if you are just jumping in to the series and don’t want to break your book budget, But trust me you will end up wanting to read the entire series.
Congratulations to Lisa Brown for winning a copy of Valerie Bowman’s Never Trust A Pirate!
