Although the law has recognized him as the vindictive Duke of Wenlocke's heir, Kit Jones, Marquess Daventry, is still on guard against his grandfather, the Duke, and hasn't forgotten the abandoned boys he has taken under his wing. But when he hires Emma Portland to tutor the lads, Kit has no idea that she has been blackmailed by his embittered grandfather into spying on him. A desperate heroine, a determined hero, and a villain fixated on vengeance interact beautifully in this intricate story of wicked schemes, lies, and double-dealing, blissfully relieved with passion and lighthearted humor. VERDICT Moore has hit her stride with this marvelously rewarding conclusion to her "Sons of Sin" trilogy. Fans will hope for more of Moore's sinful delights to come. Moore lives in Mill Valley, CA.

This is the last of a trilogy about three brothers; their mother is a noted courtesan and they each have different fathers. In the first book, Dav or Kit as he was known at the time, was kidnapped. His oldest brother never gave up looking for him and he eventually returned to his family, changed in ways they could not understand. This is Dav's story, a young man but mature beyond any calendar age. He has lived on the streets, has become the heir to a duke and is raising a "pack" of street urchins. Introduce into this the need for a tutor and Emma enters his life. She has her own history, one that is no prettier than his. Again, a very young woman but very mature. It is this maturity that makes the book plausible, as it is not always easy to fathom that two twenty year olds can do everything they accomplish. Dav is a wonderful hero and even though this book can be read as a stand-alone, you should really read the other two first. The back story gives you even more reason to see what Dav has accomplished. Emma is exactly right for him, smart, tough and together they are magic.

His acrimonious grandfather the Duke of Wenlocke arranged for Kit Jones to be kidnapped by thugs because he loathed the "Living Sin" son of a courtesan Sophie Rhys-Jones being his heir. Kit survived the streets of London but never came home in order to keep his brothers safe. However his siblings Will Jones (see To Save the Devil) and Alexander Jones (see To Tempt a Saint) find him and have him declared the duke's heir. In 1824, the Duke is dying and wants his odious pureblood nephew the earl of Aubrey as the next duke. They force accused murderess Emma Portland, hired as a teacher to Kit's street urchins, to spy on him. As Emma and Kit fall in love, his grandfather, second cousin and a corpse in Reading stand in their way. The third "Sons of Sin" tale is a great finish to a delightful Regency trilogy. The vile villains plot to destroy the heroic heir who is a bad penny they cannot get rid of so turn to blackmailing the tutor in their latest attempt. Fans will appreciate Kate Moore's exciting historical. Harriet Klausner
