Fresh Fiction Review

A Lady's Code of Misconduct
Meredith Duran

Reviewed by Kristen Donnelly
Posted August 7, 2017

Romance Historical

It's not often I'm surprised by historical romances anymore. After reading them for umpteen years, the rhythms all feel the same. Of course, some authors stand out and that's what makes them auto buys for me. This book is my first Meredith Duran book and, y'all, it will not be my last.

A LADY'S CODE OF MISCONDUCT is a breath of fresh air. The characters are distinct, their journeys are believable, and the resolution satisfying. While I wish that some of the levels of the deception didn't last quite as long as they did, I think that's because I read another amnesia story just before this one and was a little fatigued of the trope. However, Moran's execution was top notch.

I adored Crispin's transformation between his old and new selves and how they married together. It's realistic and refreshing to have that much character development in a regency that didn't feel forced. Jane's role in it - and her steps of not-so-quietly coming into her own - were so well matched with the pacing of Crispin's healing that I fell for both of them hook, line, and sinker.

Honestly, this will be one of my top picks for the year. Do yourself a favor and read it before it hits all the top 10 lists.

The next steamy historical romance in USA TODAY bestselling and RITA award-winning author Meredith Duran’s “wonderfully indulgent” (Publishers Weekly) Rules for the Reckless series.


Trapped in the countryside, facing an unwanted marriage and the theft of her fortune, Jane Mason is done behaving nicely. To win her freedom, she’ll strike a deal with the most dangerous man she knows—a rising star in politics, whose dark good looks mask an even darker heart.


The bitter past has taught Crispin Burke to trust no one. He’ll gladly help a lovely young heiress, provided she pays a price. Yet when a single mistake shatters his life, it is Jane who holds the key to his salvation. And in a world that no longer makes sense, Crispin slowly realizes that she may be the only thing worth fighting for...
