    Description

    She works to live....

    One would think the last place a beauty like Fallon O'Rourke could keep her virtue was in the Mayfair mansion of London's most licentious duke, the notorious Dominic Hale. Yet Fallon - who's endured nothing but lecherous advances since her father's tragic death - is perfectly safe there... disguised as a footman! Beneath the notice of the dark-haired devil with his smoldering blue eyes and sinful smile, Fallon never imagines her secret will be discovered. But how long can her deception last when she begins to wish she is one of the many women traipsing in and out of the sinful rogue's bedchamber?

    He lives to sin....

    Most men envy the duke, never suspecting his pleasure-loving ways are a desperate attempt to escape, however briefly, the pain of a past that's left him with a heart of stone. Only one woman can break down his defenses. Only one woman can win his love...if she reveals her secret and succumbs to the sins of the wicked duke.

    Good enough story and a good narrator

    You know what you're getting with these types of books, some are more entertaining than others - this one is one of the better ones. Fallon can't get a job cause she's too sexy with her long striking hair so she dresses like a boy to get a job as a footman. The devilish but handsome (of course!) Duke hates himself and uses women one after the other. Fallon ends up working for the Duke who has no idea his new valet is the lovely woman he rescued one night and who has haunted him since their meeting.

    Well worth the credit and I will look for further books by Sophie Jordan.

    Undeveloped plot, full of cliches

    This book was really light on plot. The author tried to make it a bit angsty with a tormented hero and a cross dressing heroine but neither plot was developed properly so we end up with a story full of cliches that it's not satisfying.

    Both main characters had tough childhoods, her in a terrible school (reminded me of the one Jane Eyre attended, with no food and girls dying left and right) and him with a vicar grandfather that hired a sadist governess to raise him. While the hero was completely destroyed by this - he goes around saying how he's numb and doesn't feel anything - the heroine still has gumption.

    The heroine took to cross dressing like a fish to water. Yes, she's tall but it's not explained how she was able to fool everybody overnight, specially when she's never dressed as a man before.

    The hero for his part, is supposed to be an artist (how you can be an artist without feeling anything, I don't know) but this wasn't explored either. There's never even ONE scene with him painting so I don't know how this added anything to this personality.

    I didn't see any chemistry between the characters and I don't know how they fell in love. Neither was particularly special or memorable.

    The narration was adequate although I thought that her voice for Francis (that's Fallon in her manly disguise) was pretty much the same as when she acted as a woman. It was a bit deliberate so I had it in 2x speed most of the time.

    Definitely NOT continuing the series or reading this author again.

    Oh to be so wicked!

    Very wicked tale! Well written, at moments rather tongue in cheek, and at others scorchingly sensuous. It’s excellent narration adds to the fun of it, totally enjoyable!

    I’ve listened to this one several times, so it’s definitely worth it!

    Just Okay

    This is my first book from this author and I am not saying that I will not read any more but I would be a bit hesitant. This was not a bad book but I must say it could have been a bit more interesting and the narrator did not help. The story dragged a bit and I was so wondering when it was going to finish. Had there been a little more kick and adventure, I could have rated this book an easy five stars.

    My favorite so far

    Any additional comments?

    Wow! This was a good book, probably my 3 or 4th book of hers and this was probably my favorite. Really enjoyed the characters and even the narrator was awesome (I had my doubts at first). Would highly recommend this one.

    Narrator tiny tiny bit under par

    Would you listen to Sins of a Wicked Duke again? Why?

    I've always liked this story and would listen to it again. It wasn't done badly, I just thought that the narration wasn't quite what I hoped for as compared to other audiobooks of its type.
    If you're wondering whether to spend the money to hear the audio of a book you've already read or want to know the story for the first time it's not a waste.

    Drab

    The narrator was pretty good. The characters were not very developed. The story was soooooo predictable and cliché. Nothing too exciting or interesting about this story.

    Sexy, funny, showed bravery, romantic

    This book had it all, also loved the reader in this. There was enough suspense, but not so much that you had to wait for release of the tension, then more suspense. All around excellent!
