What a Duke Dares (Sons of Sin) by Anna Campbell

Posted August 14, 2014 by sweptawaybyromance in Uncategorized / 0 Comments

What it’s about

What woman in her right mind would say no to marrying the dashing Duke
of Sedgemoor? Miss Penelope Thorne, that’s who. She’s known Camden Rothermere
since they were children-and she also knows she’d bring nothing but scandal to
his name.

Cam can hardly believe Penelope turned down his proposal. But if she wants to
run off to the Continent and set the rumor mill ablaze, he can’t stop her. Then
her brother’s dying request sends him to bring home the one woman he thought
he’d finally gotten over.

The only way they’ll both get back to London without their reputations in
tatters is to pretend they’re married during the journey. That means kissing
like they mean it and even sharing a bed-until it becomes hard to tell where
the game ends and true desire begins . . .

What a Duck Dares was not my favorite
read by Anna Campbell, it was just an okay read for me.
Penelope Thorne has been in love with
Camden Rothermere since she was a young girl. Cam was her brother’s best friend
and he was always there to help her when she got herself into one scrape or
The story starts off with Cam asking Pen
to marry him. Pen knows that Cam’s heart is closed off and that he never wants
to fall in love. Due to that fact, Pen turns Cam’s marriage proposal down. How
can she possibly marry the man she loves when he will NEVER give his love in return?
The story line did keep me interested
enough to continue reading. I felt the connection between Cam and Pen, but
after a while I was tired of them hiding their feelings from one another. It continued
on too long in the story and it got on my nerves. I actually rolled my eyes a
time or two and was wishing that Cam and Pen would just get on with it. I feel
this part of the story took a lot of my overall enjoyment away and did effect
my ratings.
What I felt was very well done, was a
couple of scenes that had some action added in. These parts had me glued to the
pages and gave this story some much needed excitement. 
The heat level did not kick in right
away, but when it did, it SIZZLED! You can always count on Anna Campbell to
write quite a few spicy and sensuous scenes that will satisfy even the most
jaded readers.
There was also a secondary romance and I
really liked reading about Harry and Sophia’s romance. It was very interesting,
but at the same time it also felt like filler. I found myself wishing that
Harry and Sophia would have had their own book; the story line was definitely
I was very happy with the way it
concluded, and there was a wonderful epilogue that wrapped this story up with a
neat and tidy bow.
This was NOT my first Anna Campbell read
and while it was not my favorite, I will still keep coming back for more.
