Sons of Sin #4
Published in 2015
H/h - James Fairbrother, the Marquess of Leath/Nell Trim
Setting: London, 1828.
Read in June/July, 2015.
Another disappointing installment in Anna Cambell’s Sons of Sin series, A Scoundrel by Moonlight started out rather well. I was rooting for the Marquess of Leath even after his disastrous intro in the previous installments and wanted to know more about him. Unfortunately, Nell Trim, the h, was the one who ruined it for me pretty much.
The Sons of Sin series basically tells the story of 3 friends who are burdened by the truth of their illegitimate birth, the one thing they have in common and made them stick together since they met as children, to fight the judgmental society. In their adulthood, Jonas, Richard and Cam are still together in their struggle, even though they are privileged people of the society. We’ve read their stories in the previous installments where each of them found love in the women they came to adore.
In Seven Nights in a Rogue’s Bed, dark and scarred Jonas Merrick used to hide away in his gothic castle and had a scandalous reputation as a prolific gambler and a lady’s man. When Sidonie comes to his doorstep in hopes to help her flighty sister off a gambling debt held by Jonas, the rogue in question drives a hard bargain. She has to spend seven nights in his bed, all his to do whatever he wants to and he’ll do whatever possible to help her. In the end, that bargain was all they needed as Jonas found love with Sidonie.
