Two Sinful Secrets

Written by Laurel McKee
Review by Nanette Donohue

Lady Sophia Huntington has been ostracized by her family and widowed after a brief marriage. Forced to fend for herself, Sophia makes her way around the gambling palaces of Europe, using her feminine wiles to survive. After a terrifying incident in Baden Baden, she makes her way to Paris, where she encounters Dominic St. Claire, a man from her past—and a sworn enemy of the Huntington family. Their attraction is undeniable, but can they look past their family feud and make romance bloom beyond something merely physical?

The second novel in McKee’s Scandalous St. Claires series is a surprisingly spicy romance, with love scenes that are hotter than standard fare. Sophia and Dominic’s relationship progresses at a fast clip, and there’s little doubt throughout the book that they will end up working through their (minor) differences. The Victorian-era Parisian setting, combined with the reconciliation of two feuding families and a charming couple make this an enjoyable read.
