A Rake's Midnight Kiss (Sons of Sin #2)


It Takes A Lady

Brilliant scholar Genevieve Barrett knows how to keep a secret. Her identity as the author of her father's academic articles has always been her greatest deception—until a charming housebreaker tries to steal the mysterious Harmsworth Jewel from her. She doesn't reveal that she recognizes her father's devastatingly handsome new student as the thief himself. For Genevieve, this will be the most seductive secret of all...

To Catch A Thief

Sir Richard Harmsworth has been living a lie, maintaining a rakish fa├žade to show society that he doesn't care about his status as a bastard. Yet long haunted by his unknown father's identity, Richard believes the Harmsworth Jewel will confirm his claim as the rightful heir. But when Richard sets out to seduce the bookworm who possesses the stone, he instead falls for its beautiful owner. But even as she steals Richard's heart, Genevieve will be in greater danger than her coveted treasure...

I really love this series and find the concept of the Sons of Sins or a "bunch of bastards" (as they've been called) intriguing. We always read about the member of the Ton that's born out of wedlock, but we never get to read about how the status of being born a bastard really makes them feel. Most times the character isn't bothered by it and life goes on its merry way. In this book Richard acts as if he's not affected but deep down he just wants to be seen as the rightful heir to the baronetcy and thinks finding the family jewel will do that. That's when he comes to meet Genevieve and suddenly the jewel is the last thing on his mind.

I felt as if parts of the book dragged a bit but for the most part this was a great book full of romance and plenty of conflict between two suitors. I loved getting to know Cam a little better and can't wait to meet the woman who upsets his tidy life. Looking forward to many more books by Ms. Campbell.

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.
