Read for Review (Author)
Christi has written a lot of very good books but this series (Sinful Brides) has been my favorite along with “My Lady of Deception” (Brethren of the Lords). This book is my favorite of the series, so far.
Lady Diana Verney, half-sister to Ryker Black and Helena Banbury, believes someone is trying to kill her. Her mother has been committed to Bedlam and her father has not been paying much attention to her. She dons a disguise and goes to the club seeking help from Ryker. He chooses Niall Marksman, one of the owners of the Hell and Sin Club, to protect her around the clock.
Niall is not happy having to watch a spoiled aristocrat all the time, but as he gets to know her his opinion slowly changes to desire and love. Diana is not invited to many ton events due to her parents’ scandals. She fears ending up like her mother and is happy painting and planning an escape to St. Georges island when she gets her inheritance. She wishes Niall would come with her.
Diana is truly in danger, but from an unexpected source. I will not spoil this wonderful book with its twists and turns, and eventually a HEA. I was given an ARC of this book by the author, but no one has influenced my review. I loved it!
