Publisher's Summary

Lorraine Heath ends her best-selling Sins for All Seasons series with the hero listeners have been waiting for!

She wants lessons in seduction.

Althea Stanwick was a perfect lady destined to marry a wealthy lord, until betrayal left her family penniless. Though she’s lost friends, fortune, and respectability, Althea has gained a scandalous plan. If she can learn to seduce, she can obtain power over men and return to society on her terms. She even has the perfect teacher in mind, a man whose sense of honor and dark good looks belie his nickname: Beast.

But desire like this can’t be taught.

Benedict Trewlove may not know his parentage but he knows where he belongs - on the dark side of London, offering protection wherever it’s needed. Yet no woman has ever made such an outrageous request as this mysterious beauty. Althea is out of place amongst vice and sin, even if she offers a wicked temptation he can’t resist. But as the truth of his origin emerges at last, it will take a fierce, wild love to overcome their pasts.

Best of the series

This book is the perfect finale to a very entertaining series. All the characters are rich and memorable as is the story. Kate Reading is the perfect narrator for this book...the whole series. One of the reasons I love this book so much is that it surprised me. Throughout the series Beast is in the background...mentioned but rarely seen or heard. Because of that, I've given him a minor role/non player. BUT....this book proves me wrong. As it turns out, he's the Trewlove with the most compassion, character and the most giving spirit. I fell in love with him at the very beginning...and he'll hold my heart for a very long time. Thank you Lorraine and Kate for a wonderful series from beginning to end.

My favorite of the series

The story is beautiful and fulfilling. Albeit a bit long, so many details were ticked and tied by the end. One of my favorite series any and period romance author.
**spoiler alert**
What happened to Thea’s brothers?
The timing of the parents passing and the dukedom didn’t make sense to me. Other than those two points, I feel satisfied.

Sins for all Seasons - ALL six books are wonderful

If you like historical romance, with the low born rising up, the high born falling, some temptation, very sensual seduction, love and hate, sacrifice and smiles this is the series for you. Start at the beginning, listen to them in order and fall in love with the whole family. The plots are unique and the characters are multifaceted. L. Heath is at her best and Kate Reading is a masterful narrator.

Kate Reading is awesome!

She does a great job. This is a very good story. It is simple and just a little bit of angst as the mcs try to follow their hearts. Beast is a perfect beta lead that appears to be an alpha.

Great listen!

Really enjoyed this selection and plan to go back for the rest of the series. Well-rounded characters were appealing enough to keep me engaged and pleasantly lost in the story. Great narration. Worth a credit!
