Description

The dark, erotic duet by Victoria Vale, now in one bundle!

"Dark, gothic, and sizzling hot, The Villain is Jane Eyre meets Fifty Shades." (NYT Times best-selling author Anna Zaires)

Book One: The Villain

A heartless villain…

Lady Daphne Fairchild braves the journey from London to the wilds of Scotland alone with one purpose in mind: confront the man who purposely and methodically set out to ruin the men of her family. But what he demands in exchange for answers will thrust Daphne into a world of mystery, hatred, and lust.

An indecent proposal…

Thirty days and nights in the bed of the Earl of Hartmoor...this is the price she must pay to learn the truth of the dark lord’s vendetta against her family. Yet, when she accepts the offer, Daphne never expects to find that nothing is what she thought it was, and the truth proves far harder to stomach than she ever imagined. 

Book 2: The Dove

An unexpected obsession…

After 30 days and nights in his bed, Adam sends Daphne back to London a fallen woman, the final blow that will see the Fairchild family scorned by society. However, he is hard-pressed to forget the beauty of her submission, or the brief moments of peace and balance she brought his tortured existence. Despite the bad blood between their families, he is determined to possess her, to stake his claim on her beyond the 30 nights she gave him. She will fight him at every turn … which will only make the chase, and her inevitable surrender, all the better.

A choice between love and retribution…

When the consequences of Adam’s deeds begin to fall back on not only him, but Daphne, as well, he is forced to bring her under his protection. He will end this feud between his family and hers once and for all, and is determined to put her behind him when all is said and done. Yet, it becomes increasingly clear that setting her aside will not be as simple as he thought. Her heart could be his for the taking, but only if he will abandon his vendetta against her family once and for all. Will Adam choose a lifetime of peace and love with Daphne … or will the need for revenge consume him, and eventually, destroy him?

She did it, AGAIN!

All I can say is VV is now officially on my list (I tend to be an avid Quick, Garwood, and Lindsey fan - but starting to roam into Susan Johnson, A. Chase, and other regency categories and stumbled on VV). This duet sang like an unchained melody! High notes, low notes, crescendos...you name it Adam and Daphne brought it. Hint/spoiler: Despite those low notes - just when you thought Daphne going to let Adam walk out the door the real hero presents himself (shock and awe), slaps her back to reality, and the mismatched HEA commences! By the way, not that I'm trying to harp on other authors, but I need, no I DEMAND, that Darcy reads Alyson Chase's books (specifically the LOD series) he is the voice that will bring that series to life. I'm thinking to tag both of them on Twitter to make this happen. It would be great if the Audible team did that leg work for me... Enjoy the story little doves, needless to say - its 2:15 am and I've got work at 9 am but I would be damned if I did not finish this duet... so I reccomend you start it early on Saturday morning instead of on a week night. Ah well, guess Starbucks will get some extra dollars from me later on today...and it will be worth it. XOXO

Regency Dark Romance

I love this book. I wish there's more like it, Dark Romance take place during Regency or Victorian time.

AMAZING

I do not know whether it is the story it the narrator or both but I cannot get enough of this audiobook. This is the fifth weekend in a row that I have listened to the Duology, and I have a feeling I'm not done with it yet. I never read or listen to book even twice. This is remarkable!

Loved the Narrator

VV has the best villains...this narrator gave each of the characters their own voice. You always knew who was speaking without being told. If you don't like dark villainous alpha men, you won't like this book. It is a dark romance. If you like anti heroes, you will love this one.

Entertaining Story/Stellar Performance

What can I say?!? WOW - I saw the reviews for this story in a couple other readers profiles with great reviews and curiosity won out. This story gripped me beginning to end and the performance.. Darcy Vale is an incredible talent. Each and every character was distinguishable and the performance blew me away. This is a narrator I’ll be watching out for. Victoria Vale’s writing ability has earned a new fan. Itself always something to celebrate when a writer/narrator creates magic this way. Though there were quite a few steamy parts, they were all so well done and exciting in their own way. So often a story goes to snooze-mode after the deed is done and details in the bedroom get skimmed over or go down the same sounding road every time. A good writer can show how those intimate details can have so much to do with the overall picture. Sex scenes aren’t always a must for me, but those intimate details written well can add much to a storyline.

Where do I start? Awesome!

I read the duology which put the Villain and The Dove in one recording. I really like the storyline. It was captivating, suspenseful, sad and joyous. I was engaged from the very beginning. Sometimes when I read a series, I like to stick a book between just to keep the series from being monotonous. On this, you could not have torn me away. My favorite character was Adam, his story and personality remained constant throughout. Mr. Stark made Adam come to life and I wanted to be his desire. OMG, it was so sensual. My only complaint with the whole of it was how many times (especially in the Dove) he said "little Dove". Appropriate often, but said waaaay to much. Since I found this book with a highly sexual rating, I was not expecting such a good story. The sex is HOT, but fit the story and I was not offended. The rough language didn't even upset me. I am looking forward to reading the Butterfly and more of Victoria Vale's novels. Also Mr. Stark in my new favorite narrator.

My second favorite book of all time.

I grew up with the Bodice Rippers of years ago. I love them. Dubious consent, yes. But always with a happy ending, always with romance and passion, and always with that wonderful feeling when the Hero and Heroine finally get their shit together. Yea, this is THAT BOOK all over again, but with erotica thrown in to make it the hottest book you could listen to. Darcy Stark. There should not have to be any other explanation. Just say the name over and over again. When Victoria Vale found him, she found sex in a voice. O.M.G. He makes this story of Adam and Daphne come alive and the story was already so hot you can't hang onto the Kindle without oven mitts. If you want Regency Smut at its finest...and yes, I mean that, erotica writ large with romance thrown in too, listen to this book. Make sure you have your smelling salts because between Darcy Stark's voice and Adam's sexiness, you will be swooning in your chair. Loved this book any way I could get it - read or listened to. I highly recommend.

awesome

Really loved this dark romance. All my fantasies come true. Would recommend this series that doesn't mind some rough sex. I loved the ending since they both were a little clueless throughout the book. I ordered for my sister also. I don't do that often at all.

Captivating

Victoria Vale’s The Villian’s Duology was engaging from the moment the first word was spoken. Darcy reading her words had me feeling the character’s thoughts and deeds. Gripping to the last word. Now after hearing it I want to get the ebook and read it for myself.
