Addicted to the Duke by Bronwen Evans introduces her new Imperfect Lords series. Alex was an interesting and complex character sharing with readers a very real inner struggle as he deemed himself as undeserving all the while performing the actions of an honorable man. As readers were made privy to his personal agony and relentless thirst for revenge, that even surpassed his craving for opium, they could understand his war over his desire for Hestia. Hestia’s beauty extended way beyond her visage as her acceptance and care of Alex showed her to be a thoughtful and strong heroine. The pages of this work were filled with intrigue, action and suffering as tenderness and love took over to win the day. Bronwen Evans always shares candid snapshots of history as her fiction brings characters that standout even as they conform to the time period they live in.
