eARC: A Season for Sin by Vicky Dreiling
In Vicky's last book How to Ravish a Rake, you got a glimpse of Andrew Carrington, the Earl of Bellingham, (Bell) and he is a rake of the first kind. So, he's a mystery, you don't really know who he is other than friend to Will Darcett, and a man who is trying to run from his past.
At the beginning of the story, he's going to dump his mistress. Boy the man is in for some surprises when he gets there. Now Bell is on the hunt for a new mistress. The man is having no success. When he stumbles upon Collin Brockhurst, Earl of Ravenshire, and Harry Norcliffe, Viscount Evermore, at the Vauxhall. Which is the start of a unique kind of friendship.
They tell him a new widow just came to town and she has no interest in getting married. Of course this piques Bell's interest, because he has no desire to marry. A match made in heaven, right. WRONG!
Lady Chesfield, Laura Davenport, is a very proper widow who has desire to be conquer by a rake or married off to anyone. She just came to London to enjoy the company of others. However, this is easier said than done, when you have Lady Atherton trying to matchmaker.
My thoughts now:
First off, you need to think of this story as a long prologue. Going into this story with that frame of mind will help you not to be disappointed. Basically the story is a set up for Vicky Dreiling's next book What a Wicked Earl Wants, which will feature the story of Bell and Laura. I have to say I can't wait to read it. Both of them have been warned to stay away from each other. However, all Bell here's "Go for it."
Overall, I liked. Even though it left you wanting more, and sometimes that is the case with novellas. As I said before this is setting up for the next book and the series. So, be on the look out for it, you I know will.
Well, that's all for now and happy readings!
