Sinjin Rayborne is the oldest of three brothers and the one that has an insatiable appetite for sex that has managed to give him the nickname Sin. He also does everything possible to live up to that name. Now he has been given an ultimatum to find a bride or lose his inheritance. Now Sinjin is going to have to give all the pleasure houses and all the women he has known in the past and settle down with just one woman. For a man that has known so much pleasure he is not sure that is going to be possible but to hang on to his inheritance he will do what he must.

Katelyn Davenport is engaged to an older man to pay off her father’s gambling debts. She dreads the day the wedding will take place and looks forward to the wedding night even less. When she first meets Sinjin at a soiree that is being held in order for Sinjin to find the bride he needs she is instantly attracted to him. Now she thinks that she just might have a chance to enjoy the passion she knows she will never get in her marriage bed. She also knows that the woman that ultimately becomes his bride will be one very lucky woman.

Once Sinjin sets eyes on Katelyn he knows that he has found the one woman that will be able to match his passion and that he will never be able to have enough of. Now he just has to find a way to end her engagement to another man so that he has a chance to have the happiness he never thought would be possible for a man like him. Katelyn knows that she is fast falling for Sinjin and that would be the biggest mistake she can make as she is not free. Katelyn is now finding herself trying to find a way out of her engagement so that she might have a chance at a future with Sinjin.

This is a story that has more twist that will keep the reader engrossed just to see what will happen next and if Sinjin and Katelyn will find the happiness that they are both hoping to find for themselves. This is first story of the brothers’ stories and is a wonderful start that is sure to have the reader wanting to read the next book in this trilogy. This is one historical not to miss.

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
