STORY: American artist Jeremy Keane refuses to return home and take over his father’s business. He’d much rather sample bevvies of beauties abroad, in search of a model for the provocative masterpiece he’s driven to paint. When he meets Lady Yvette Barlow at a London wedding, he realizes she’s perfect for his work—and determines to capture the young heiress’s defiant spirit and breathtaking sensuality on canvas.
No stranger to scandal, Yvette agrees to be Keane’s subject—in exchange for his help gaining entry to the city’s brothels he knows intimately, so she can track a missing woman and solve a family mystery. But when their practical partnership leads to lessons in the art of sinning, can they find a bold and lasting love?
REVIEW: This is the first book in Sinful Suitors series and even though the premise of it is familiar, I found it entertaining as I followed this group of past and present well-meaning scoundrels forming a club in order to ‘vet’ and keep rake’s and scoundrel’s away from their unattached women folk. What can possibly go wrong, especially when it comes to their own members!
In this first story of the series I was glad she brought Jeremy, the artist cousin of a heroine from her previous series, and paired him off with a feisty Yvette.
It may take you awhile to warm up to the heroine, but once you do, you’ll root for her happiness. As for the hero, no matter how ‘scoundrely’ [yes, I know that’s not a word] he acted, I never took him for one. I liked him from the get-go.
As usual, Ms. Jeffries puts together some fun and intriguing characters in this entertaining story. I’m looking forward to the rest of the series.
