“…a sweet yet sensual story…”
~ Under the Covers

I’ve totally been reading this series out of order and I was anxious to go back and catch up on the books I had missed.  Not to say that I have good memory or that I remember the characters in this book being part of the books I’ve read.  However, as soon as I started reading THE ART OF SINNING I knew it would deliver a sweet yet sensual story, just as I was expecting.

For one, the hero is an artist and the heroine is to be his muse.  Her brother makes a deal for him to paint her portrait and of course he bargains with the heroine for a more private painting they can work on at night, alone.

In essence, this is not a very complicated plot.  The heroine is trying to find her nephew and she needs the hero’s help.  And he’s been running away from his past, the death of his wife and child at childbirth and the anger he’s carried since for himself and his father.  But the characters are just adorable.  You can’t help but want to see how things will turn out for them and to see them overcome those past issues they both have.  I also loved how the actual “art of sinning” was woven through the story.  It gave it that sensual something I was looking for.

Overall, again, this is a great installment in the series (yeah, I know it’s the first one!).  I think for me the full length books in this series are much better than the novellas and I’ll definitely make sure I catch up on any I haven’t read yet.

About Sabrina Jeffries

Sabrina Jeffries is the New York Times bestselling author of more than 50 novels and works of short fiction (some written under the pseudonyms Deborah Martin and Deborah Nicholas).

At home in front of a crowd, Jeffries is a sought-after speaker, as evidenced by her 2010 gig as emcee for the National Romance Writers of America’s 30th Anniversary Awards Ceremony.

Whatever time not spent speaking to organizations around the country or writing in a coffee-fueled haze is spent traveling with her husband and adult autistic son or indulging in one of her passions—jigsaw puzzles, chocolate, and music.

With over 9 million books in print in more than 20 languages, the North Carolina author never regrets tossing aside a budding career in academics (she has a Ph.D. in English literature) for the sheer joy of writing fun fiction, and hopes that one day a book of hers will end up saving the world.

She always dreams big.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

This sounds so familiar but I don’t have it listed in my read books list. I may have to remedy that.
