Book Description

Blonde and beautiful Lady Anna Blacknall is in the mood for mischief. Entering Dublin's most notorious den of vice, she finds herself in the arms of a mysterious, emerald-eyed Irishman. And although he is masked, his tender kiss is hauntingly familiar.

Conlan McTeer, Duke of Adair, has come to Dublin to fight for a free Ireland. But he's suddenly reunited with the young Englishwoman who had once claimed his heart, and his passion turns from politics to pleasure. When their sizzling encounter brings danger to Anna's door, she must decide where her loyalties lie-and quickly. For someone will do whatever it takes to destroy Conlan . . . and anyone he dares to love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Daughters of Erin, Book Two 17 Feb. 2011
By Detra Fitch TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Set in Dublin, December 1799. Lady Anna Blacknall had not seen Conlan McTeer, the Duke of Adair, in about two years. During those fearsome days of the Uprising, Anna had been on the run with her family, and Conlan had been intent on his own unknown, dangerous mission. Anna still has occasional nightmares about that horrible time, but now she is the daughter of Protestant aristocracy and the toast of the Society Season. In need of a bit of excitement, Anna had convinced her widowed friend, Lady Jane Cannondale, to take her as a guest into Dublin's most notorious den of vice, the Olympian Club. Coming face-to-face with Conlan manages to strip away Anna's decorum.

Conlan McTeer has come to Dublin to fight for a free Ireland. All anyone is talking about are the Union debates in Parliament. Those Union debates are what have Conlan's life in danger, because he works for those who oppose it. There are many who would do anything to stop Conlan's interference. Should his enemies notice Conlan's interest of Anna, danger would find its way to her door. Should anything happen to the lady, Conlan would never forgive himself.

None would enjoy seeing Conlan fail more than Sir Grant Dunmore. Grant is Conlan's cousin and most bitter enemy. Years ago Grant had tried to use the old Penal Laws (that allowed a Protestant to claim a Catholic relative's property) to gain Adair Court. But Conlan's ancient title had saved his ducal estate, which his family has held on to for centuries. The suit had tore the Irish branch of the family from the English once and for all. Grant plans to wed Anna, who would be the perfect Society wife to further his ambitions.

Anna must quickly decide whether to be safe and wed Grant or risk all for the wild Irishman she loves.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great Historical Romance 30 Nov. 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Duchess of Sin (Daughters of Erin)I thoroughly enjoyed this read. This is the 2nd book in the series THE DAUGHTERS OF ERIN TRILOGY and this book can be read without reading the first. There is enough details for the characters and you won't feel like you missed anything but I think that it would have even been better had I read the first one before this. I will be reading the first in the series "Countess of Scandal" because the 2nd one was great and I want to read the whole series. I love the way that Laurel McKee writes. The chapters have a good feel and flow nicely and the story blends well. I have to admit I just love a historical romance with a good Irishman in it. The characters work well together and you get a chance to know them and get a feeling of being there with them. If you want a good Historical Romance this would be a great choice. It would make the perfect gift for any romance reader.

I was provided this book from the author Laurel Mckee, Grand Central Publishing, Forever- Hachette Book Group & Anna Balasi through Book Blogs. This review is of my own honest opinion on the book that I have recieved from this company free of charge to do this review and that in no way influences the way I do my reviews. I am under no obligation to give a positive or negative review. All reviews are of my own thoughts and should not influence a non-purchase on any item soley based on my reviews as these are only my own opinions. '

5.0 out of 5 stars Bridget's Review 5 Dec. 2010
By bridget3420 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
My favorite thing about Duchess of Sin is that actually had a plot and wasn't totally predictable. The main characters were unique and I couldn't help but be swept away by their story. I highly recommend this book to historical romance fans everywhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Second Daughters of Erin Book 25 April 2011
By Tooncesmom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lady Anna Blacknall, a member of the Protestant Ascendancy is bored with the endless ball and dinner invitations and her widowed mother's attempts to marry her off to a wealthy man...any wealthy man. Anna, however, is in the mood for mischief and visits a notorious den of vice in Dublin where she finds herself in the arms of a dark-haired Irishman with green eyes. A man she has tried in vain to forget, along with a night of terror.

Conlan McTeer, Duke of Adair, fights for a free Ireland and his encounter with the blond young woman who claimed his heart two years earlier creates confusion for him and danger for her.

It is December 1799, two years after the ill-fated Rising and the fight is on between Union and anti-Union forces. Conlan owns the Olympian, a gaming establishment where he watches and tries to influence pro-Unionists to aid in his fight to reject unification. Conlan,a wealthy Catholic landowner, treats his people with respect. However, he has acquired a number of enemies, including his cousin Sir Grant Dunmore, who tried to gain ownership of the estate under the Penal Laws (which forbade a Catholic to own land).

The politics of the time are present throughout the book, and as danger mounts, Conlan tries to shield Anna, who at first seems oblivious to the danger or the reasons behind it. But finally, she decides to take the risk with the dark, intense man who has captured her heart.

At first, Anna seems unrealistic, even difficult to like, however, she reaches an epiphany where her character changes. As her past experiences are woven in a little at a time, the reader has more sympathy for her.

A secondary love story is added as Katherine, Anna's still beautiful mother is courted by Nicolas, younger sister Caroline's art teacher, a man who is not entirely what he seems.

I felt the story was well written, and I enjoyed the Dublin setting, refreshing for a Regency period book and as a student of Irish history, especially interesting to me. As mentioned previously, Anna's character came across at first as that of a spoiled society girl, but as she spent time with Conlan, her character became more interesting, and one could see that, having a carefree nature, she struggled within the confines of the period.

Ms. McKee has done a thorough job in her research of the period, and she weaves in just enough history to make the plot interesting and realistic without overwhelming the love story. This is the second in her Daughters of Erin trilogy. I look forward to Caroline's story next.

Duchess of Sin by Laurel McKee
Historical Romance - Nov. 30th, 2010
3 ½ Stars

Duchess of Sin by Laurel McKee is the second book in the Daughters of Erin Trilogy. This new series features the stories of the extraordinary and interesting Blacknall sisters.

Duchess of Sin is the story of middle sister Lady Anna Blacknall who is in the mood for adventure. While in Dublin she dares to enter the most notorious den of vice where she ends up in the arms of a masked man of mystery who seems utterly familiar. Colan McTeer, the Duke of Adair, has come to Dublin to fight for Ireland's freedom but is stunned to encounter the young Englishwoman who once claimed his heart. Colan is forced to deal with not only his political desire but his personal ones as well.

Laurel McKee does an admirable job creating interesting characters that are fun to read. The 2 main characters are both complex. This added another layer of interest as their mutual conflict and desires for one another make it exciting to read. I also loved a lot of the secondary character which I found to be quite interesting and can't wait to read their stories in the next book in this great new series. The author does a fabulous job of creating a story that is a great mix of political intrigue and danger along with a compelling romance that makes this a great read.

Overall, this novel is an enjoyable book. The only thing I would recommend is to read the first one in the series Countess of Scandal first in order to better understand some of the situations and characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars terrific historical romance 4 Dec. 2010
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In December 1799 in Dublin, Ireland Lady Anna Blacknall is attracted to Conlan McTeer, but distrusts the Duke ever since the ambush of her brother-in-law's regiment two years ago during the Uprising. Although she knows better than to act so imprudently, Anna and her best friend Widow Lady Jane Cannondale attend a masquerade ball at the exclusive naughty Olympian Club known as a hot bin of sin and scandal. Masked Conlon sees Anna, takes a kiss that both recognize intimately, and sends her home.

Anna and Conlan begin seeing one another. However, her skepticism of his perfidy remains high while he tries to keep her and her mom Lady Katherine safe from the tumultuous tension between the Irish and the English. She knows she must decide between the man she loves who her family considers their mortal enemy and the safety of her family by marrying his cousin Grant Dunmore.

The middle Daughters of Erin historical romance (see Countess of Scandal) is a terrific entry due to the interwoven backdrop of the Irish-English strife enhancing the romance. The lead couple is an interesting pairing as she distrusts her heart while he fears his numerous adversaries will use the love of his life and her family as expendable pawns to destroy him; which if harm comes to her he will. Laurel McKee provides a superb tale.
