Lady Ciara Sheffield joins the crowd of Regency bluestockings in this serviceable and nicely steamy debut romance. Ciara's knowledge of herbs and the unfortunate death of her extremely unpleasant husband has led to society labeling her Lady Murder, a slander encouraged by her husband's grieving family, who want custody of Ciara's son. In order to redeem her position in society, Ciara forms a sham alliance with a notorious but politically powerful rake, the earl of Hadley. While Ciara is a somewhat two-dimensional character, the romance with Hadley, which involves smugglers, kidnappers, and—even worse—gossip of the ton, is well drawn and intriguing. Glimpses of Ciara's circle of scholarly female friends promise that further Circle of Sin titles will share this one's intellectual bent. Description taken from here.
My Review:I'm not going to lie, when I first started reading this book, I thought I wasn't going to like it. The first 2 or 3 chapters were slower than I had hoped for. However, I kept reading and was very glad I did. The story picked up and the plot was brillant. The ending was really rather adorable, and I really liked how Mad Bad Had-ley (great nickname, huh?) subtly grew up and evolved as a man. His character was written out so well, he just made the whole story.
