Duke of Sin (Maiden Lane, #10)
Jul 16, 2017
Note to self: You liked this mostly for Val. The way he was written, the way his thought process was explored, the way his redemption was earned...all fell nicely in line with what we already knew about his flexible moral compass. And the good thing is that Val doesn't change by the end of the book, he simply meets someone he loves very much and does not want to disappoint. He also has certain lines that he hasn't crossed yet, but without Bridget's presence in his life he would probably (eventually) end up crossing them in his drive to gain more power. You liked this story because it didn't give him a redemption arc, it gave him a reason to not cross those last lines that would squarely put him in the villain category. However, I think, if he ever lost Bridget, he would most likely go right back to the downward spiral that he was on before her. Or, maybe she would eventually bring a fundamental change in him. It would take time though, and a lot of love. A maybe re-read, just to study how to write an amoral character in romance/ End note.
