Rating: 3 Cups
At the tender age of seventeen, Anne Beddington became a prostitute. Forced into the profession due to unfortunate circumstances, the gently bred young woman knew her life on the social scale was forever ruined.
Devon, The Duke of March, may have been one of the most notorious rakes throughout London, but a war accident has blinded him and made him a recluse in his own home. When a well-meaning friend sent him a woman to act as his mistress, Devon had every intention of turning her away.
Anne refuses to let Devon’s negative answer toward her being his mistress deter her. She must stay put or possibly face the hangman’s noose, and she uses all of her seductive powers to get the sexy duke to let her stay. What began as a mission of pleasure soon becomes more as Anne shows Devon how to revel in a sightless life with just his touch, scent, hearing and taste. Even as Anne grows closer and closer to Devon, the dangerous man she has run from has found her and is willing to take Anne, no matter the cost.
When you read a Sharon Page novel, you know the erotic encounters within the pages will be extremely steamy and hot to the touch. I think one of my favorite parts throughout this whole book was when Anne introduced Devon to the rain. The descriptive wording was very powerful and the scene had that “wow” factor that had me savoring each raindrop as Devon did. I am hoping there will be another story involving Devon’s sister and a certain well-known rake of the ton coming our way. Engaged in Sin has a good plot, strong characters, controversial conflicts and harsh obstacles that have you reading a well-written tale.
