Review of A Lady’s Code of Misconduct
Review (4 Stars): One of the things that I love about Ms. Duran’s books is how her books always have strong heroines and a great writing style that will make you fall in love with each of her romances. After losing both of her parents, Jane is trying to protect her inheritance and her future from her greedy uncle by making a deal with the dashing Crispin Burke to marry her. If Jane weds, she gets her inheritance and her freedom yet Crispin has an offer for Jane as well. She must spy on her uncle to help Crispin’s political agenda and see what horrible things her uncle has been up to. The more time that these two spend with one another brings about feelings that they never expected and one accident may change everything forever.
I loved these two characters because they seemed so perfect for each other even though they seemed as though they were exact opposites in the beginning. Jane was a great character and I loved that she was smart and knew exactly what she needed to do to gain her freedom from her selfish guardians. This romance was well-written and entertaining and I enjoyed every minute of this story. I’m looking forward to seeing what is next for Ms. Duran because I enjoy every one of her love stories.
