I read this series a number of years ago, probably 9 or 10. I loved the series and bought all the books. I have forgotten some of the details and decided to read the series again. Ms. Jordan is a wonderful writer. She brings her characters to life and lets to see into their lives. She also makes you see the places where she sets her stories. Ms. Jordan does a fine job of bring out all kinds of emotions in the reader; anguish, anger, love and a great caring for the lives of the characters that the reader has come to know. Considering the time this book was written Ms. Jordan writes some steamy love scenes that will leave you wanting more. So keep the tissues and ice water handy and enjoy this wonderful story.

I wasn't really impressed with Damien "Lord Sin" Sinclair when I first started reading about him. He is a libertine rake of the first order and probably what must noblemen were at this point in history. Like so many rich there isn't enough to keep their minds busy so they look for things and those things will almost always cause a scandal. It is long however that Damien begins to redeem himself. It takes his younger sister getting hurt, her reputation ruined to start to turn him around. Final step in his redemption is Vanessa Wynham. She comes to him to save her family from ruin and Damien makes her an outrageous proposition. He doesn't know it but he has set about his downfall. Damien shows that he is a caring, compassionate and very patient man. He loves his sister and will do whatever he can to help her get back on her feet. He has the capacity to love just one woman, there just hasn't been any woman that has kept his attention. It is sad that the only way to force Damien to really change is a life altering event and for Damien it is being shot in a duel. While recovering he is forced to look at his life and find a way to show Vanessa he is a changed man.

Vanessa is afraid of men and their amorous needs. Her husband hurt her both physically and emotionally. She is honorable and loyal as well as caring and compassionate. Like so many other women during this time there are few choices except to marry a rich husband and become mistress of her own household. Vanessa isn't looking for marriage even though it would save her mother and sisters. She went down that road once and doesn't want that pain and suffering again. She is hesitant accepting Damien proposal but she doesn't have any other choice. It is interesting watching her discover passion and her own power over the male species. Vanessa is also courageous and intelligent. Those traits are probably what draw Damien to her in the first place. ( )

If you like your rakes jaded and your romance hot, this book is for you. The heroine agrees to be the hero's mistress to save her family, but soon learns that being a mistress has certain…er…attractions. Unfortunately, she's fallen in love with the hero, and he isn't sure he can ever love. It takes all her will to bring him around. ( )
