Synopsis: Seduce Lady Juliana Ivers and then cast her aside: Those are his sister’s instructions. Alexius Braverton, Marquess of Sinclair—known as Sin to the ton—is happy enough to oblige, especially when he catches a glimpse of his target. Juliana is completely unlike the empty-headed chits who barely hold his attention for a week. A true gentleman would leave her to find a worthy suitor. But then, a Lord of Vice would never claim to be a gentleman.
Juliana is expected to marry well to improve her family’s finances, even if she secretly longs to make a living through her musical compositions. A dalliance can only complicate matters, though not even practical Juliana can help succumbing to the aptly named Sin. But one unforgettable night will draw her into a scandalous affair—and a seduction begun as sport will soon become deliciously, dangerously real…
Review: Something I really love about this book, and the series as a whole, is that they’re not entirely focused on sex as a lot of books in this genre tend to be. Sure there’s some of that going on, but Alexandra tends to focus more on the characters, their interactions and their stories.
Sin’s a bit of an ass for pretty much all of this book, his redeeming qualities are shown more in later books, but I never felt like he seduced Juliana just because his sister asked him to, or that that was a major part of his motivation. He wanted her before his sister asked him and he knew that she was the woman his sister meant. I hate her mother and really felt like someone did need to go off on her.
Overall, it was a light, fun and entertaining read. I was able to read it from start to finish in pretty much one sitting. The only thing that really bothers me with this series is the amount of names/nicknames that the guys have and how often they change between them. It can become a bit confusing considering there are 7 of them.
Recommendation: If this is a genre you love, then you definitely should check this series out.
