Lorraine Heath ends her bestselling Sins for All Seasons series with the hero readers 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.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Beauty Tempts the Beast is the sixth and final installment in the Sins for All Seasons series. The perfect finale for the Trewlove family. I highly recommend reading the entire series from start to finish, not as standalone titles, to ensure you have the best emotional impact of the overlapping characters.

At last, we are gifted with Beast's story, and it is by far one of my favorites of the entire series.

Beast, with his large heart and quick mind, the ultimate hero protector caretaker. Once Ben sees someone as his, he takes on responsibility for them for life, and this is what drew me into the character so fiercely.

Althea, the fallen beauty to the beast. The daughter of a traitorous duke, having had her title revoked by the crown, lost her betrothed, with all of her friends quite literally turning their backs on her. Her elder brothers are attempting to clear their name, yet also saddled with Althea, in an era when women had little options of employment.

Ben spots Althea in his sister's tavern, immediately taken with her, intrigued with how someone who appears to have been reared in Mayfair is serving the working class. Having spent his entire adult life helping fallen women, Althea becomes more than his newest project. He sees her as the ultimate tutor for his women, if only he can keep to his rules... an impossible feat, that.

Althea gives Ben a run for his money before finally seeing how advantageous his offer of employment truly is, allowing her brothers to go on their quest without worrying over her.

A slow-burn, push-pull dance begins between Ben and Althea, where Ben tries to stick to his rules and his Thea begins a subtle education in seduction. They challenged one another, drew the best possible traits out of each other, beginning a true connection.

I read ravenously, unable to put the novel down, needing to know what happened next. When interrupted, I got downright snarly for being yanked from the story. I needed to follow Ben and Thea's journey.

The Trewlove family brought humor and emotion and warm and fuzzy elation. The twist near the end brought copious amounts of angst that had the pages flying by.

Lorraine Heath did an amazing job connecting all the Trewlove stories, ending it on a high note, while also leaving open threads that will have readers eager to get their hands on the duke duology, featuring Althea's brothers as they try to clear their family name.
