A steamy new romance by Jess Michaels, A Matter of Sin starts off her The Ladies Book of Pleasures series with a bang! Highly sensual and romantic, A Matter of Sin, centers around widowed Lady Isabelle Avenbury who decides to take a lover after her youngest sister ties the knot. However, when she meets Seth Rowland at his house party, her plans go awry. Both of them are attracted to each other and start a sensual and steamy affair!
I love reading A Matter of Sin. I was able to connect with Isabelle from page one. She had sacrificed a lot for her family and despite, loving her husband in her own way, she didn’t experience the kind of love that she had been dreaming of. When she sees a copy of The Ladies Book of Pleasures in Seth’s study, she borrows it and gets caught by Seth!
I also love Seth. He is on a bride hunt – well, under the insistence of his mother, but is tired of all the simpering misses that are fresh from the nursery. When he catches sight of Isabelle, he is entranced. Seth, is a very likable character and I love that he wasn’t the typical rake. He was the perfect lover for Isabelle. Although there were minor obstacles that they had to face, in the end, I was glad that they found their HEA.
A Matter of Sin was a quick read for me and I was able to finish it in one sitting. Yes, it’s that good. The only complaint I have is that I expected it to be MORE steamy! I give this book four stars and highly recommend it to readers who love steamy HEAs!
