William Cavendish is…different. Too much so for his merciless father to bear publicly. He was hidden away from the world his entire life until, in one dark moment, he did the unthinkable to save his beloved brother, gaining his own freedom in the process. But liberty has its own price. William struggles with a world he doesn’t understand, emotions he’s never experienced…and an alarming taste for the dark side he’s discovered dwelling within him.
Formally educated in law, Tamara Bennet is unlike most women of the day. Not bad for the daughter of a lowly lady’s maid. When she learns a secret society was responsible for the torture of her closest acquaintance, Victoria Cavendish, she vows to employ any and all means—legal or otherwise—to bring the society to its knees. At her side is Victoria herself, as well as Victoria’s husband, Nicholas, and his brother—the intriguing and troubled William.
Delving ever deeper into London’s darkest shadows, an undeniable attraction blooms between William and Tamara, bringing them closer and closer…until their actions stir up perilous forces determined to tear them apart.

POV: William and Tamara
Steam Level: Quite Hot at times – Also rough (consensual) which people have issues with
This is the second book in the Dark Sovereignty series but the first one I’ve read. I was a little worried that I wouldn’t know what was going on but Anna Edwards did an excellent job catching me (the new reader) up while not backtracking too much into the previous story (I assume). While Tainted Reasoning deals with some dark themes it’s very well written and not too graphic – definitely will push some people’s boundaries. I also really liked Anna Edwards portrayal of William and his Autism.
I received an advanced copy of this book. This is my honest and voluntary review.
- Why would I ever try to fit in when I was born to stand out?
- To be different is not the scandal or embarrassment my father led me to believe. It’s something to be cherished, making the person unique.
- Everyone has their mad moments. Its what you do after that counts.
