Sebastian Malheur is the most dangerous sort of rake: an educated one. When he's not scandalizing ladies in the bedchamber, he's outraging proper society with his scientific theories. He's desired, reviled, acclaimed, and despised-and he laughs through it all. Violet Waterfield, the widowed Countess of Cambury, on the other hand, is entirely respectable, and she'd like to stay that way. But Violet has a secret that is beyond ruinous, one that ties her irrevocably to England's most infamous scoundrel: Sebastian's theories aren't his. They're hers. So when Sebastian threatens to dissolve their years-long conspiracy, she'll do anything to save their partnership...even if it means opening her vulnerable heart to the rake who could destroy it for good.

Sebastian had an extraordinary ability to make me melt into a puddle of emotions for much of the book and Violet was the mastermind scientist I wish I was. There was so much angst in this book, I loved it

This was perhaps my least favorite of the Brothers Sinister series because the romance felt forced. I definitely appreciated the solid friendship that existed between the two main characters, but I never felt that they had much romantic chemistry. That being said,what I have really enjoyed about this series is that each book addresses a social issue of the time. I especially loved that this was all about women's involvement in the sciences/academia versus being the perfect wife and mother. Overall, a satisfying book because it was about way more than romance.

While perhaps less satisfying than the first two entries in "The Brothers Sinister" series, the refreshing take on the hero being the one long in love with the heroine, the interesting theorizing on just who may have been responsible for some of our significant scientific discoveries, and the great characters make this still a pleasure to read.
