I've read previous Erin McCarthy books and this story surprised me. It had a dark twist which her other books did not. I must say it did capture my attention. Perhaps some folks prefer the characters to be perfect in every way but once in awhile I don't mind reality, the character who is truly flawed. None of us are free of sin and Damien is a reminder of how being young and rich doesn't make you smart, considerate or mature. He was twenty four when married, used to getting his way and thrown to marry a woman equally young and immature. He didn't know or love Marie in the beginning but knew his obligation. There actually were two stories being told, Damien's life before being a demon and after thru his agonized memories and thru Marie's heart wrenching letters. I truly believe a person can have alot to contemplate in their lives over two hundred years and Marley showing up when she did was perfect timing when Damien was feeling his loneliest and vulnerable. The same could be said of Marley. She was selfless to his selfishness. Opposites do attract and I can't help but wonder if Marley was a present day Marie and the reason she captured Damien's attention unbeknownst to him. I am an advocate of second chances and any repentive soul deserves forgiveness including a demon.

Makes you catch your breath

I really didn't know what to expect with this book but was actually good to read. The book is sexy and explicit in some parts (makes you look around your shoulder to make sure no one is around, and keep your breath even and steady). I love Erin McCarthy and I purchased this book to begin the "Seven Deadly Sins" series. After reading this first one I will definitely read the other books.

It is a different kind of supernatural than vampires and werewolves and all that stuff- so that is refreshing.

The feeling you have when reading the "confession letters" makes it different from other books, because it is someone telling a story within a story. It is touching and those letters scattered throughout the book make you want to read the next letter. The story of Marie keeps you wanting to know what happened to her and Damien.

    Interesting but not fulfilling

    While the background story proved interesting I don't believe McCarthy managed to balance the erotic and the romantic here. The story had interesting elements but didn't mesh to create a rounded and balanced plot that drew me in or convinced me was likely. Much of the sexuality in the novel is there to be there it doesn't do much to set a mood. In fact, the reason for the sex parties was poorly established as was the heroes original behavior. There was little connection between who he was and who he became later. They were two different characters altogether and the dramatic transformation of one into another is ill explained or rather, the explanation does not suffice given the dramatic contrasts in character. lso a problem is the lack of chemistry between the two characters. They weren't a great pairing. Their relationship just seemed unlikely and lacked depth.
