Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Spurred into action by her father's command to mend her irresponsible ways and make a respectable match within a month, Lady Ivy Sinclair has little choice but to try to make her current flirt, the rather dull Lord Tinsdale, propose. But a new charmer has attracted Tinsdale's attention, and a suddenly desperate Ivy does the only thing she can—she buys some competition. Unbeknownst to her, the "actor" she has hired to portray the relatively unknown Marquess of Counterton is actually the marquess himself, who, fascinated by the boldly unconventional Ivy, plays along. VERDICT This funny, spicy, satisfying tale is another winner for Caskie (To Sin with a Stranger) and is the second title in her "Seven Deadly Sins" series, which stars the wild Sinclair siblings. Note: Envy is the featured sin, and well-chosen quotes (e.g., "Of the seven deadly sins, only envy is no fun at all."—Joseph Epstein) add to the fun.

Unable to get throigh chapter 2 because the ebook is so... mismanaged? distorted? disorderly? I'm not really sure the proper word to describe it, but the end of a page then leads to a page in the future or a repetitive loop of the last page read or will even pull forward a page from chapter 1. Even trying to "find" a specific page number results in this disaster, as does searching for the last line of the page and trying to find the appropriatly subsequent content that way. Basically, this efile is so distorted, it is impossible to read the book in proper sequence. It is not worth the money for a format with so many holes.

Ugh. This is one book I just wanted to be OVER. I hate to stop reading something once I start; it has to be pretty bad for that and this one didn't go into that territory--it was just very annoying. It wouldn't have been too bad if the main charscters just hadn't acted so stupidly. Honestly. Ivy's plan was inane from the start. Nick had about a million opportunities to tell Ivy the truth (Okay--slight exaggerstion. At least three excellent chances. But it felt like a million, trust me.) The whole "Seven Deadly Sins" thing was all a bit too much--really? Their names just so happen to coincide with their sins? Maybe their parents should have rethought their sytem of nomenclature--buy a baby names book maybe? I started with the second book because it's the only one my library had available digitally. I probably won't be looking for one or three, though. Or four through seven, if it comes to that.

While there was nothing about this book that made it special and I found the "Seven Deadly Sins" theme cliche, it was a pleasure to read. This is the kind of romance novel that makes you sigh with happiness when you finish the last page, the type of novel that is truly a delight to fans of romance. The couple doesn't argue the entire time. In fact, the only arguing was the female protagonist's, Ivy's, arguing with herself and her emotions. This is quite refreshing among the endless stream of novels where the couples are always butting heads and arguing to the point that I want to rip my hair out. The only problem I had was Ivy's behavior. I have read so many historical novels where the women act as free as the women today. It's irritating. If those women really acted that way, then they would be complete outcasts of society no matter what their status or money. I am also sure that the menfolk would simply not allow such behavior. The male protagonist, Dominic Sheridan, stole my heart away. He was sweet and endearing to Ivy, that it grabbed my heart strings. At first, it was amusing to watch the two's playful banter, and then watch how their behavior changed so subtly when the two began to fall in love. It was cute. I actually liked the light-hearted feel of this novel so much, I rented the other two currently published.

It takes a lot for a book to grab and hold my attention, but this one sure did. It has romance, humor, seriousness all rolled up into one book. I never laughed so hard in my life. It is such a wonderful book, I couldn't put it down.

Just imagine hiring a man to pretend to somebody who he happens to really be. LOL! This book is a page turner. I love the characters. They are so funny yet loyal to each other. I can't wait to read the succeeding books about the other siblings.
