Duke of Sin (Duke Trilogy, #1)

Duke of Sin (Duke Trilogy, #1) - Adele Ashworth I was really hoping to love this book. It had all the right earmarks for me: Lonely duke meets equally lonely widow with a secret and he helps her foil an extortion plot.

Unfortunately, there was too much "telling" and not enough "showing" for me to really get invested in either of the them.
The character development and courtship I crave in a romances was lacking. No doubt there were some scenes and moments that really worked and kept me reading but after I finished the book, I felt generally underwhelmed.
