From Publishers Weekly
A beautiful working-class girl finds true love with a licentious rake in the promising opening of a new Regency romance series. Orphaned heroine Fallon O'Rourke is one of a trio of resourceful young women who have moved from the Penwich School for Virtuous Girls into household service to the ton. Fallon dodges several lecherous employers and finally finds safety in male disguise as a footman, working for the notoriously decadent Dominic Hale. As Fallon fights her growing desire for her new boss and Dominic puzzles over his unusual interest in his young employee, their growing closeness endangers both Fallon's secret and her virtue. Jordan (Surrender to Me) only sketches the Regency setting, keeping a tight focus on Dominic's household, but sizzling sexual tension between the leads makes for a thoroughly satisfying romantic romp. (Apr.)

known among the ton as a demon duke.
Dominic Hale, Duke of Damon had no morals.
His grandfather, Rupert Collins did not want
his grandson turning out like his father.
Dominic's father was a rake, a gambler and
Dominic's grandfather, a vicar, and a nanny
Mrs. Pearce, raised him after his mother died.
The trustees charged Rupert Collins to raise
his grandson. Dominic's father, the Duke, nearly
drove the dukedom into the ground with his
gaming. Mrs. Pearce was very abusive toward
Dominic. It caused years of being rebellious
behavior toward his grandfather and his nanny.
Fallon O'Rourke's father worked as gardener for
Viscount Lord Hunt. Lord Hunt sent Fallon's father
to Seychelles to find a flower, but he contacted
a disease and died. Fallon was thirteen when her
father died. Her mother died when she was very
young and now Fallon has no living relative. Lord
Hunt sent Fallon to Penwich School for Virtuous girls.
The two main characters Fallon and Dom were
totally opposites in English society. Yet, these
two lost souls had much in common. The Duke
had a warm side. He would bring home urchins,
feed them, and find a home for them to live. Fallon
and two other girls ran away from Penwich School
to escape the headmaster who enjoyed beating
and starving them.
I enjoyed reading Sins of A Wicked Duke. The
hero and heroine were easy to like. There were
other characters in the story line such as Marguerite
and Evie, the two girls who ran away with Fallon
from Penwich School.
I highly recommend.
