Seven Sinful Nights by Nicola Davidson
As the jaded, lowborn owner of London’s most notorious gaming hell, Blake Evans relishes tormenting his aristocratic debtors. When an errant peer offers one night with his sister-in-law Estelle, Dowager Duchess of Tolwick, Blake counters with impossible terms: the oh-so-proper widow must spend a week in his bed, submitting to his every desire. Shockingly, she agrees. But far more surprises are ahead, for this young beauty has a wild heart, a taste for wickedness, and might just be the woman of his dreams. If only she wasn’t promised to another…
The Gangster’s Prize by Joanna Shupe

But when her father goes missing, Isabelle knows who is responsible . . . and she will get answers from the devil one way or another.
As the leader of the Hell’s Kitchen Gang, Billy Baxter always gets what he wants. And he’s had his eye on the beautiful Miss Kelly for months. She doesn’t know it yet, but she’s fallen into his world now.

The Bootlegger’s Bounty by Adriana Herrera
Rosalía Ferrer dreams of leaving her island behind and sailing north to sing in a New York City nightclub. Unfortunately, the only way to escape her father’s suffocating clutches is to align herself with a man who is as ruthless as he is lawless. Putting her fate in the hands of a villain like the Rogue of Rum Row is a very risky gamble, but Rosalía will do whatever it takes to get what she wants…even if it means striking a deal with the devil himself.
After ten years, Camden McCullough is finally poised to pull off his last rum run. If he can keep the brown-eyed hellion he brought on to his schooner from getting them both killed, he might sail into the sunset with everything he’s ever wanted: the loot and the girl.
The Conquering of Tate the Pious by Sierra Simone
England is burning with Norman fires, and Tate—the youngest ever abbess of Far Hope Abbey—is determined to guard the abbey’s ancient secrets with her very life. Her life may be what it takes, however, for a Norman warlord known only as The Wolf is pillaging his way right to the abbey’s doors. But when The Wolf arrives, Tate finds not the brutal warrior she was expecting, but his even more brutal widow in his place, a cruel and beautiful woman who leads her dead husband’s men with a ferocity to rival that of her Viking ancestors. And after she sets eyes on Tate, it becomes clear that gold and silver aren’t the only things The Wolf wants to carry off into the night…
The follow-up to 2020’s USA Today bestselling Duke I’d Like to F… and 2021’s Rake I’d Like to F…, this anthology is bursting with wicked villains, dangerous tales, and the signature high-heat swoons of the Duke I’d Like to F… crew!
Seven Sinful Nights Review:
There’s villains and then there’s Blake Evans who likes to torture nobles who default on their loans from his gambling house. Estelle is offered to Blake to pay off her brother in law’s loan and is in parts intrigued and afraid. She quickly gives into her submission to Blake in the most steamy of scenes. Their time together is short but wow, do they burn up the page. With a cast of delightful side characters, including a dog who get pulled in a wagon, I didn’t want this story to end!
The Conquering of Tate the Pious Review:
I love a good medieval story and Sierra Simone gives us one set right after the Norman Conquest and it’s a FF romance to boot! Tate is the abbess of Far Hope and arriving at her doorstep is William the Conqueror feared warlord, The Wolf. Just as The Wolf is revealed to be a women, Adelais, Tate as the abbess has her own secrets. The way of life at Far Hope is being threatened and in an attempt to save it, she gives herself to Adelais. The scenes between them nearly burnt up my Kindle, not surprising from Sierra Simone. There is role playing and even some knife play. Even in a short number of pages, both Tate and Adelais are well fleshed out characters and we as reader get an understanding of what drives them. While insanely sexy, this story also has heart.
