To Save a Sinner

He expected to be the topic of scandalous gossip.

Banished to Boston for causing the death of Lord Banbury, Lucas Dempsey vowed never to set foot on English soil again. But when his brother inherits the viscountcy and pleads for his return, the opportunity to show his contempt and loathing for the Society who turned its back on him proves to be far too enticing to resist.

He did not expect an intriguing young lady to barge into his home with the intention of saving his wicked soul.

When the dishonourable Lucas Dempsey steps into the ballroom after a four-year absence, Helena Ecclestone is quick to label the gentleman a murderous rogue. That is until she stumbles upon a secret conversation and feels a moral obligation to see justice done. But while the ladies swoon over his handsome countenance, Helena is determined to look beyond such superficial features, intrigued to find the true character of the gentleman he hides beneath his arrogant façade.

  1. Enjoyable Read I took a chance on this book as I had never read anything by this author, and was happy I did. The hero (Lucas) in this story has lived in exile in America for the past 4 years because he and even his family believe he killed a man after hitting him. He has just returned to England, and meets Helena (the heroine) at a ball. Helena is an attractive young woman, but lives in the shadow of her sister’s beauty and selfishness. At this ball, Helena overheard 2 men talking about the man Lucas…

  2. Too much sex early on The blurb sounded good and the author’s style is not off putting. However, I quit reading at 25%, so tired of reading about how horny the H is and his descriptive sexual fantasizing about her when she’s standing in front of him. Well placed lust and sex is all good and fine. It all felt so rushed. Others will like it just fine so this review is geared toward those like me who get want a story not overwhelmed by detailed sex.

  3. Each Book Gets Better I thought A Curse of the Heart was an excellent read. I just finished reading this one and it is so much better. Adele is a very witty writer and much of her dialogue between characters adds much humor to the story. I love her heroes – both Gabriel and Lucas are outcasts from the Ton, but each find love with strong, spirited women, who, too, are looked down on by the Ton.
