Deadly Sins

Lora Leigh

Witnesses to a shocking crime, three men must face the dangers of the past to unlock the passion in their hearts…

Logan Callahan has fought hard to forget what happened that fateful day, so long ago. But every night he tries to sleep, he relives the nightmare. Every time he closes his eyes, he sees the woman whose life he could not save…

A newcomer in town, Sky O’Brien is a mystery to Logan. Like him, she is a night owl. Like him, she is fighting her own demons. Like him, she hides a secret in her eyes—a fire that consumes him with every glance. Could she be the one to heal him?

When Logan’s ex-girlfriend is brutally murdered, his past implicates him as suspect—and his new neighbor Sky may be the only person he can turn to. Together, they share an attraction that can’t be denied. But as he searches for the real killer, he discovers that Sky is tracking down a murderer too—and she intends to use him to do it…

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for bestselling author Lora Leigh’s Elite Ops series

MIDNIGHT SINS

"MIDNIGHT SINS has everything a good book should have: suspense, murder, betrayal, mystery and lots of sensuality.  So rarely do you come across a book that you can lose yourself in and MIDNIGHT SINS is definitely one of them.  Lora Leigh is a talented author with the ability to create magnificent characters and captivating plots."—Romance Junkies

"Leigh delivers in her latest work. The plot stays on track and the small-town setting serves the story well. Mikayla and Nik are well-developed characters who share a sweet and erotic passion. This is a hot one for the bookshelf!" —RT Book Reviews on Renegade

RENEGADE

4.5 STARS! "Renegade is a wonderful combination of all the right elements-smoldering romance, suspense, and mystery. Add to that the cast of interesting characters-and their pasts-and you have the perfect recipe for one amazing novel." —Night Owl Romance

"RENEGADE will have you breathless in places and it gets your blood running hot with the physical attraction between Mikayla and Nik."—Romance Reviews Today

BLACK JACK

“Overflowing with escalating danger, while pent-up sexual cravings practically burst into flames…”—Sensual Reads 

HEAT SEEKER

“Leigh’s pages explode with a hot mixture of erotic pleasures.”—Romantic Times BOOKreviews

MAVERICK

“A phenomenal read.”—Romance Junkies

“Scorching-hot sex, deadly secrets and a determined assassin add up to another addicting Leigh thriller. Leigh’s ability to credibly build damaged characters who are both intriguing and intense gives her stories that extra punch.”—Romantic Times BOOKreviews

“Sex and violence power the satisfying second installment of Leigh’s Elite Ops series.”—Publishers Weekly

“Full of wrenching emotion and self-flagellation by the hero, the new series of Elite Ops promises to be even better than the sexy SEALs at this rate.”—Night Owl Romance

“With her customary panache for emotionally intense, sensual characters, the author attracts readers into every world she creates. This fabulous follow-up to Wild Card is no exception to the rule.”—A Romance Review

“Ferocious passion!” —Romantic Times BOOKreviews

And Leigh’s sexy SEALs series…

KILLER SECRETS

“A smoldering hot new espionage tale. This chapter of Leigh’s SEAL saga reverberates with deadly danger.”—Romantic Times BOOKreviews

HIDDEN AGENDAS

“Treachery and intrigue combine with blistering hot sensuality in this chapter of Leigh’s SEAL saga.

“An evocative and captivating read.”—Romance Junkies

DANGEROUS GAMES

“A marvelous novel of suspense and raw passion.”—Romance Junkies

    Editing errors

    I wait anxiously for new books by this author. While I enjoyed much about this book, the continuity of the story caused me to pause and write a review. I don't know if she has bad editors, or if they are trying to get books out too quickly, but there are noticeable, almost glaring incosistencies in the sex sceces. One paragraph Skye is wearing yards of satin in lingerie, the next paragraph she is wearing a blouse. This type of error happens throughout. While many might miss this, or not care, I find iy distracting for a totally enjoyable read.

    Liked the book until the very end. What was the ending? Maybe just my Nook, but it seems like the ending was missing. Or are we just left hanging until the next in the series?

    So I hoped for the usual, mildly interesting story with a lot of hot romance, described by an experienced author who has provided me quick, enjoyable reads in the past. What I got was what looked to be a collaborative class assignment in Romance Writers 101 pasted together. Errors everywhere, both in references and basic English, and the writing was incredibly immature. I half expected to see "throbbing manhood" in the descriptions. The story was difficult to piece together, which made the whole read much more difficult than it deserved. Very disappointed.

    WHO wrote this?

    I have gobbled up all of her books but this left me disgusted. Obviously there was no editor or proofreading becoz it repeated itself over and over and over and over. I know u authors have contractual obligations to fill but shouldnt ur reputation come first? All i can think of was i wanted my money back

    This book was 300+ pages of poorly written crap! It's filled with grammatical errors, continuity errors - I can not believe St. Martins printed it. I used to be a huge fan of Ms. Leigh but I won't be spending any more money on her books. It's insulting.

    Very disappointed with this book. The editing was very bad and distracting. In one paragraph Logan became Rafe. In more than one scene Skye changed clothes in the middle of making love. I love Lora Leigh's books but this was not one of her best. I hope the next in the series is better.

    I loved Logan!!

    Brought to you by OBS reviewer Heidi

    The second installment of Lora Leigh’s Callahan’s series turns the focus onto a different Callahan cousin, Logan, who just happened to my favorite when I was reading the first book, Midnight Sins, and after reading this one, he’s still my favorite!

    Like his cousins Rafe and Crowe, Logan has lived a rough life. His family disowned him after his mother’s death and he and his cousins became the town’s pariahs having only each other and their Uncle Clyde (who is now deceased) to depend on.

    Logan has seen what the Sweetrock Slasher can do, going after any females that the Callahan cousins get involved with and killing them to make sure that no Callahan heir is ever born and to hopefully get the Callahans to leave town and therefore forfeit their inheritance.

    Amy Jefferson had gotten close to Logan when she was trying to use herself as bait (unbeknownest to Logan) to catch the slasher, but he ended up getting to her and killing her like the others. It’s something that has always weighed heavily on Logan and now he does everything he can to keep other innocent females from that same fate. Logan doesn’t date and when he does take a female to bed, he goes out of the way and out of Corbin County to keep her out of the reach of the murderer that haunts them. So imagine Logan’s surprise when one of his out of town one-night stands ends up a victim of the slasher. Not to mention his DNA being at the crime scene where the body had been dumped. Lucky for him his new neighbor, Skye O’Brien, was willing to alibi him and actually admit to being with him that night. Little did he know that Skye is an undercover FBI agent trying to do the same thing that Amy was; bait a killer.

    I thought this was a pretty good read. The storyline continues pretty much where Midnight Sins left off. Rafe and Cami are engaged and the cousins are trying to keep her hidden as they continue to look for the person who is pulling all the strings with the murders as so far the two men the cousins have killed where just following orders, but from whom?

    Logan has tried his best to stay out of relationships, but Skye is the one female he can’t ignore and she worms her way right into his heart. Now the killer has her in his sights and Logan knows that he can’t survive losing her.

    “He couldn’t even find the will to yell at her now. A real man didn’t yell at those who weren’t exactly sane themselves, he told himself.” ...(Cont)

    Can't wait til the next one

    I will admit this isn't her best work, there are editting problems through out, but I still want to know who done it. This is the 2nd book, the first wasn't bad. Hopefully the third is alot better, and out soon....I hate books that end with nothing resolved, or even close to being resolved. Just more bad guys and their bad deeds with some hints on who they are. With a couple getting together logan and his fbi agent with some scenes of their romance. Dislike saying if this wasn't the 2nd book i won't rate it as high as i did.

    I am hoping there is some sort of conclusion somewhere. The book never ended.

    I really enjoyed this book and didn't want it to end. I think I may even like this one better than the 1st in the series (Midnight Sins), and I can't wait for Crowe's story! (wouldn't mind seeing a story on Archer too, but since he's not one of the cousins, I won't hold my breath) While the love scenes were nice and steamy, like we've come to expect from Ms. Leigh, there were some issues with backing up or repeating that I found confusing and distracting. If both hands are holding her still, where does a "free hand" come in to explore?? It seems like these things could have been caught and fixed in editing, which is why I rated 4 stars instead of 5. I did have to shake my head though - for a heroine who's supposed to be so tough and strong minded, if I had been left hanging, not once but twice, like Logan left Skye, you can bet I would have been taking charge of the situation. But Ms. Leigh writes in such a way that you feel the frustration along with the characters, which is what makes her work so good!

    Ever think about editing this book?

    The only good thing about an unedited book is that I can pretend it says what I want it to say. Other than that, it's just annoying.

    Surely the published hard copy doesn't have this many mistakes. Characters names are reversed, scenes are full of practical errors, in one spot the same couple of pages are repeated.

    It's a real shame nook is so greedy for your money they just put any old copy out to be distributed. Maybe the Kindle version has less errors......

    (Other than that, the story is great. Lora Leigh doesn't let her readers down.)

    Writing is very poor. No ending.

    This book needs to be rewritten with attention to details, editing and grammar. An ending would be good idea, as well.
