Our Review

In Victorian England, vice of every kind can be purchased, and Matthew, the Earl of Wallingford, makes certain he avails himself of every possible pleasure. Bored and jaded, he is as well-known for his coldness as for his licentious affairs with beautiful women.

We meet Matthew, the handsome, notorious aristocratic playboy with a closed heart. His past haunts him and for him, sex with a woman is just that. Sex. No emotion, no feeling. Sex fills his physical needs but he is shut off emotionally.

Jane is a lowly nurse. She works as a lady’s companion during the day and a nurse at night. This is where she meets Matthew who has been beaten up. Matthews’s eyes are bandaged as a result of the attack and he cannot see Jane but is drawn to her through her angelic voice and caring touch. These two have a connection, a bond that transcends sight and Matthew and Jane cannot deny the strong feelings they have for one another. Being with Jane makes Matthew yearn for more.

Jane was such a beautiful and sweet character. She wasn’t your classic stunning beauty, her beauty was on the inside and I loved her from the minute we met her. Matthew needed a strong woman to free him from his past and Jane could be that woman.

Although being a bit of a novice on Historical Romances I have to say I have become a huge fan of this genre, and this book was one I devoured immediately. I was swept away by its beauty, it’s characters, it’s drama and the way in which the author had me experiencing life in this era.

To say this was an emotional read would be an understatement. The character of Matthew with all his flaws and demons had me riveted. The relationship between Matthew and Jane was beautiful, painful, erotic, sensual, heartbreaking and even cruel at times and I breathed every minute of it.

There were times I actually had to put the book down and compose myself such was the profound effect this story was having on me.

There were a few reveals I didn’t see coming and they shocked me. I pretty much worked out Matthews demons early on but this in NO way detracted from my horror when his back story was revealed.
It was moving and I felt every moment.

“I know the man you were,”
“I’ve glimpsed him since. Where is he, Matthew?”
“He’s broken,” he rasped as he ran his lips down her cheek to her jaw. “He’s fucking ruined, Jane, and he’ll destroy you.”
 

The sex was steamy……the carriage scene **fans self** – well, you definitely felt the chemistry between these two – it leapt off the pages.

This book was such a surprise and turned out quite differently to what I originally expected and it was pure torture at times, but torture in a… “I’ve just read a really great book” kind of way. You know? The sort of book that leaves a mark on your heart.

This book held me from the very first to the last page and it never let go.

A truly amazing read that I won’t forget in a hurry. This is a book that will stay with you long after you read “the end”/

NB: I read Sinful without reading Addicted (Book #1) and found I kept pace with the story.

Synopsis

He must find redemption in the most unlikely bedchamber…

In Victorian England, vice of every kind can be purchased, and Matthew, the Earl of Wallingford, makes certain he avails himself of every possible pleasure. Bored and jaded, he is as well-known for his coldness as for his licentious affairs with beautiful women.

While these numerous dalliances fulfil Matthew’s every physical need, they secretly leave him numb and emotionally void. Until one night when he finds himself beaten, eyes bandaged and in the care of a nurse with the voice of an angel – and a gentle touch that soothes the darkness in him and makes him yearn for more.

Yet Jane Rankin is a lowly nurse, considered shy and plain by most. There is no place for her amongst the lords and ladies of the aristocracy – despite Matthew’s growing craving for the fire that burns behind her earnest facade. And then there is Matthew’s secret. A secret so humiliating and scandalous is could destroy everyone he loves. A sin, he fears, not even the love of a good woman can take away…

    Thank you for the review on this book! Historical romance is a genre I have read alot over the years, but it’s been all contemporary the past year. Think I’m going to have to add them in to my current reading.

      It really is a wonderful and genre – this is a good book to read as is Sylvia Day’s Seven Years to Sin (loved that!) and The Madness of Lord Ian McKenzie by Jennifer Ashley. Can absolutely recommend these – would love to know your thoughts if you read them 🙂
