He hunted for beauty. He wasn’t prepared for love.
“Entertaining, satisfying and sensuous.” (All About Romance)
There’s a reason Ruan Bettancourt, the Duke of Cynssyr, has obtained the nickname Lord Ruin. In London for the season, his plan is to marry the most beautiful debutante on the marriage mart, and he always gets what he wants.
Spinster Anne Sinclair is sensible, strong, and overlooked. On a night in which she vowed to protect her sister from the infamous Lord Ruin, she never expected to end up in bed with him.
Forced into a marriage neither of them wanted, Anne and the Duke believe they have no hope of passion or love for the rest of their lives. When the rogue falls completely for his tall, bespectacled wife, it’s up to him to convince Anne to relinquish her heart.
Lord Ruin is the first book in The Sinclair Sisters saga, a series of Regency historical romance novels. If you like captivating, naughty, angst-ridden heroes and intelligent, complex, spine-steeled heroines, then you’ll love Carolyn Jewel’s steamy series.
“Ms. Jewel’s sensual, passionate and powerful love story keeps to the classic lines of the Regency historical while adding a fresh new voice.”
“Spectacular! Carolyn Jewel is a masterful storyteller who creates stories filled with magic.”
