Series: Regency Sinners #6
Published by Carole Mortimer on April 27, 2018
FINAL DECISION: Completely unrealistic but hot romance. I wanted more character development rather than sexual escapades.
THE STORY: Lord Titus Covington, Viscount Romney and his friend were assigned the job of investigating the Germaine twins to determine if one of them is the traitor that the “Sinners” are seeking. When the traitor orchestrates a carriage accident killing Titus’s friend and Lady Prudence Germaine’s twin sister, Prudence blames Titus. But Titus needs to clear Lady Prudence so he is insistent on getting closer to her — of course, he also is attracted to her as well.
OPINION: This book follows the formulas of the prior books in the series. This book, however, didn’t have a strong couple at its center. I never really got the connection between Titus and Prudence since their beginning happens before this book begins. The pace of their relationship is really quick as they fall into serious sexual escapades without any prelude. I also didn’t buy that this innocent would be traipsing around London alone allowing her to meet with Titus.
For me, there was too much sex and not enough character development. The book is hot but I think that was a substitute for the characters having any real depth.
The overarching story also doesn’t move very much here as this book is really just setting up the final book in the series.
WORTH MENTIONING: I am totally on board for the final book in the series. I didn’t see the setup coming.
CONNECTED BOOKS: WICKED TEMPTATION is the sixth book in the Regency Sinners series. This book can be read as a standalone as it summarizes everything a reader needs to know. Readers should be aware, however, that there is an overarching storyline this is not resolved in this book.
STAR RATING: I give this book 2.5 stars.
