The Most Wicked of Sins
Book 2 in the Seven Deadly Sins series

by Kathryn Caskie


Ivy Sinclair is determined to marry Lord Tinsdale before a month’s time or lose her inheritance. When an Irish beauty arrives and steals Tinsdale’s attentions, Ivy’s brother Grant suggests that she find a gentleman to make Tinsdale jealous. Her sister knows just the man—an actor from the Royal Theater Drury Lane.

Dominic Sheridon has just returned to London. After seeing his actor cousin, Felix Dupré, play the lead in a play, Nick exits the theater. When the door accidentally hits a beautiful young woman, Nick is relieved that she’s not hurt, but is taken by surprise when she kisses him, then proposes he play the part of the absent Marquess of Counterton. Nick, intrigued by her offer and stimulated by her kiss, agrees. An alarmed Felix later informs Nick that the Sinclair siblings are known as the Seven Deadly Sins. After experiencing her kiss, Nick hopes Ivy's secret sin is lust. But Nick has his own secret—his true identity.

Ivy has limited resources, but with Grant’s help she arranges to hire the Counterton House for the month, along with a meager staff. The stage is set to give Nick lessons on proper deportment, though she already knows he’s perfect for the job. After all, the sexy, handsome actor’s kiss left her knees weak and robbed her of all thought. But all too soon Ivy’s plan begins to fall apart, especially when Nick’s kisses leave her wanting more.

I loved the humor, especially the scene with Felix. Nick is the ultimate hero, sexy, masculine, and one who slowly gains the upper hand in his relationship with Ivy. From the very beginning, sparks fly between Ivy and Nick. I couldn’t wait for Ivy to give up her pursuit of Tinsdale and concentrate her efforts on the man who is obviously her match. The other Sinclair siblings provided humor and added dimension to the excellent plot.

The Most Wicked of Sins is romance at its best—a pure delight.  Kathryn Caskie weaves passion, plot and characters with such mastery that you long for more. Needless to say, I await the next release in this marvelous series.
