Summary

Lady Calliope Manning is determined to punish the man she holds responsible for her beloved brother’s death.

She will do anything in her power to destroy him. When rumors swirl that the Earl of Sinclair requires a wealthy bride to rescue himself from dire financial straits, she seizes the opportunity to ruin him at last.

Justin “Sin” Vaughn, the Earl of Sinclair, needs to marry an heiress, and he needs to marry one now. But the sudden, anonymous publication of salacious memoirs rumored to be his obliterates his chances. With polite society convinced he is a murderer, he has only one choice: Find the person behind his supposed memoirs and get his revenge.

Callie never expected Lord Sinclair to discover she wrote Confessions of a Sinful Earl...nor to abduct her and demand restitution in the form of her own hand in marriage. She definitely did not expect to find him so difficult to resist.

Sin is about to teach the beautiful, perfidious Lady Callie a lesson in ruthlessness one scorching-hot kiss at a time.

A delightful tale of abduction and redemption

Lady Calliope Manning is determined to punish the man she holds responsible for her beloved brother’s death.

Justin "Sin" , Earl of Sinclair, having been ruined due to Callie's publication, decides to abduct, teach her a lesson and get his revenge.

This is a delightful romp with two great characters, who I really warmed to,  so much so that  "Sin" is my latest #BBF.

I love how they have to work through their mistrust of each other, find out the truth and eventually realise how much they love each other. it made me feel all warm inside.

The only downside was the narration. Both narrators were good but I would have preferred John Lane to be the only one, as I found it distracting, particularly when Olivia read the male parts.

Well done Scarlett! You’ve done it again!

o k story

Story was ok but wasn't too enamored with the female narrator, her voice wasn't what I expected.
I preferred Mr Lanes voice and so it spoilt it a bit for me.

Good, but narration by Thompson is a huge turn off and fail!

I am a huge fan of Scott’s books and looked forward to this one. Overall, the book was good but did have two big detractors. First, while Olivia Thompson’s narration of the text and lead character were good, her narration of other characters was quite horrible! It was a huge distraction and turn off especially when she narrated the voice of Sin. Her voices were ridiculously raspy and gravelly, even for other female characters. I’m actually quite shocked that this audio version with her bad voices would have been signed off on because it’s pretty terrible. John Lane’s narration was flawless as always and was a saving grace for being able to visualize Sin.

The second detractor of the book was a lack of true development in the story of how Sin and Callie could go so easily from hate to love. While efforts are made to address this, it’s all too quick and easy and there is not enough true emotional struggle given how things started between them. Also, the lack of deeper backstory for Sin as to how he fell to the levels of depravity that he did in his past was disappointing. There was more depth and development needed in those key points of the story line to truly pull you in.

EXCELLENT NARRATORS!!

Oh this is one hot sexy romance story. This is close to erotica!! But very well written and a great storyline.

Lady Callope Manning know as Callie to family and friends. Has published a series disparaging articles about Justin "Sin" Vaughn Earl of Sinclair. Callie has accused him of murdering his wife and her brother the Duke.

Justin Earl of Sinclair has been financially ruined and ostracized by Ton because of Callies lies. So he kidnaps her. This begins a very sensual tug of war between the two enemies. Justin make Callie marry him or he will expose her as the writers of the articles. Which will ruin her and her brother the Duke.

Callie and Justin slowly but surely fall in love. It takes time for them to trust and eventually fall in Love!! This is a beautifully written story.. The Sex is HOT HOT HOT!!
EXCELLENT AUDIBLE EDITION!!

Female narrator of hero

I could not listen to the audio Olivia Thompson impersonating the hero was screechy and awful.

Not worth the cost

This was very disappointing considering the cost. Story was absolutely lacking of pretty much everything one would expect. Nothing new at all here and the character's were so incredibly underdeveloped and lacking even a little depth. Sadly, this was wasted money and time as I've already forgotten this tale. If you're still willing to take your chances on this, do yourself a favor and listen to this at a min speed of 1.15. Otherwise it's not bearable.
