Lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. The Cynfell Brothers are the very embodiment of a sinful existence. But could the right woman change that?
Being the mistress of one of the most notorious rakes in London was never going to be easy, but Josephine believed she was strong enough. After all, she loved Dante Cynfell to distraction. He provided her with a comfortable home and all the art supplies she could ever need. After a short marriage that left her near destitute, the widow couldn't help but fall into his arms...and his bed.
But after four years of tolerating his drunken behavior and late-night calls, Josephine has had enough. Her paintings have caught the eye of a great patron of the arts. With promises of fame and fortune ringing in her ears, she realizes being a mistress simply will not satisfy her anymore. She wants true love, marriage, and respectability.
When Josephine ends their arrangement, Dante is shocked. She had a comfortable home, his adoration...hell, even his faithfulness. What more could a beautiful woman want?
Marriage? Well, that's one thing Dante Cynfell doesn't plan to offer any woman - not even Josephine. He's witnessed too many miserable marriages. Why put the person you care about through such misery?
Positive he can win her back, he sets out to remind her how good they are together. One thing is for sure, Dante will not give her up easily - especially to another man. Josephine is about to learn that an envious Cynfell man is not to be trifled with.

No to both. The narrator had some real issues with reading. One of the most awful mispronounciations is viral, instead of virile. At least I hope so, instead of the hero being manly, maybe he was contagious!?! Sher pronounced chivalrous , with the "ch" like the word "chives"...so it sounded like chive- rous.
In the first chapter there was the background sound of a garbage truck moving down a street. The sound editing was very bad.
Anyone that could read.
Miss smith, the heroine's lady's maid. not sure what she brings to the story.
I really did not think this story was true to the time period. Also the hero's nickname for the heroine, "jo-jo". It never sounded romantic or loving. It made her sound like a buddy that he plays basketball with...and not the love of his life.
