Overview

USA TODAY Bestselling author Jess Michaels tells three erotic stories of seduction in this compilation of her popular "Sin" series of novellas.

Wager of Sin:
Scandalous widow Bianca Clairmonte has spent the last year of her life running through a string of lovers and losing at card games in the hells to her late husband's best friend, Lucius "Hawk" Hawkins. But when her loving, but disapproving father threatens to have her declared unfit to force her home and back into a staid existence, she realizes she'll need her lost fortune back to flee the country. She proposes a wager to Hawk. Spend a month in her bed and if he ends up begging for more, she wins her money back. But Hawk wants more than a month, and he'll take Bianca to her breaking point in order to win her love, as well as her body.

The Sweetest Sin:
When their secret marriage was illegally annulled five years before, Landon Hawkins swore he would never love again and that he would never forgive Juliana Russell for her utter betrayal. But now she has turned to him, requesting that he help her recover her missing sister and the lust and pain he has hidden all this time come rushing back. He strikes a dangerous bargain with her. he'll search for her sister during the day, but at night Juliana belongs to him in every way. But Landon may not be able to purge his desire for Juliana as easily as he thinks. Not when the fire of the love they once shared begins to be rekindled with every touch.

Sin's Mistress:
Raphael Sinclair is the most debauched of rakes and rogues. When he wants something he takes it, whether it be revenge or a woman. And now he wants both. Evelyn Greville's father is Sin's worst enemy. And what better way to purge a stunning desire for the innocent miss and ruin her father than to have her in every wicked way his clever mind can imagine. But Evelyn is not as innocent as she seems... and he may be the one conquered by Sin's Mistress.

I really enjoyed these stories. I like how the stories characters relate to each other. The author was genorously descriptive. In other words, she gives the reader vivid details of the sex (and LOTS of it), passion, love, and conflicting emotions of the characters throughout each of the three stories. Personally, the author writing skills is much more mature, as oppose to Fifty Shades.

I borrowed this book from a friend and got most of the way through. I enjoyed what I read and found the steamy scenes exhilarating. A very good book for those who wish to live vicariously through literature.

Overall I enjoyed this book, but felt by story three the author was rushing the stories to finish. Which was a shame because the third story, Sin and Evie was my favorite. However, the writing and story telling was amazing.

This collection of novellas was a fast and steamy read!  I love how the author developed the characters and intertwined their stories.   I have been a romance/erotica reader for many years and I find Jess Michaels' stories to be a breath of fresh air.  She takes a unique look at the regency period and has introduced storylines that have made me laugh, cry, and even feel angry with certain characters.  I LOVE that! If you wish to read some excellent quality erotica, pick up these novellas, or any of Jess Michaels books!

4* Over all I enjoyed this anthology. Another good book by Jess Michaels Sin's Wager 3.25* I enjoyed this erotic short story. Hawk and Bianca have loved each other for years but neither of them knew how the other felt. Bianca was married to Hawk 's best friend who's been dead for a couple of years. Now Bianca needs Hawks help and they strike a wager of a month worth of sin.  The Sweetest Sin 4* This was a good erotic short story about a love that lasted through the heart ache of lies. Juliana lies to Landon to save her sister from her fathers gambling debts. Five years later Juliana goes to Landon to help her find her sister after her father has sold her to payoff a debt. I liked this story a lot it had a great story line.  Sin's Mistress 3.75* This was a good erotic short story of a man bent on revenge and a woman he's going to use to mete out that revenge and ruin her in the process. Sin and Evelyn had great chemistry and some very hot sex.

Three super steamy novellas wrapped up in one lovely package. I admit I am normally not a fan of the novella, but I loved that fact that all three stories were interlinked through the characters. All three stories are very hot. It was easy for me to become wrapped up in the emotions of these characters and wish for them the happiness they deserved. I highly recommend this wonderful erotic read! First we meet Bianca and Hawk in Wager of Sin. Afraid that her father will declare her unfit to care for herself, Bianca needs to reclaim her gambling losses from Hawk so that she may keep her independence. Bianca decides to make a wager with Hawk, she will spend the next month in is bed and if at the end of the month he is begging for more, she will win her money back. Hawk agrees but adds to the wager if Bianca is the one begging she will remain is mistress. Both have loved each other from afar for years, can there truly be a winner in this Wager of Sin? Next we learn more about the history of Hawk’s prudish brother Landon in The Sweetest Sin. Shocked to find out the upstanding Landon hasn’t always been so perfect. Five years ago he was secretly married to the lovely Juliana. When the couple is found together, for reasons unknown to Landon, Juliana claims she was forced to marry and receives an annulment to marry another. Landon has never gotten over this betrayal and now, five years later when Juliana comes to him for assistance in locating her sister. Landon takes his revenge in a most pleasurable way. Finally in Sin’s Mistress we meet Evelyn (Juliana’s sister) and Raphael Sinclair, better known as Sin. Sin is out for revenge against Evelyn’s father, Lord Trevington and because he can’t get Evelyn out of his mind decides to use her in his plot for revenge. He takes Evelyn as payment for Lord Trevington’s gambling debts, for the next 10 days Sin will own her and educate her in his decadent lifestyle. Will Sin get the revenge he so lusted after or will he find a sweeter reward?

I’ll start with reviewing my favorite story of the three novellas, The Sweetest Sin. I absolutely adore the two protagonists Landon and Julianna who were eloped five years ago. It should have been a happy ending but their marriage was annulled when Julianna’s father, Lord Trevington, caught up to them and forced her to marry the Duke of Breckinhill. The story however, starts when five years later, Julianna, now a widow goes to Landon for help to save her sister Evelyn who their father has used to pay off his gambling debts. Naturally, Landon asks that she become his mistress in exchange for helping her find her sister. The book flowed rather nicely and despite it being a novella, I feel that it had a lot of depth and the characters, well drawn out. By the end of the book, I ended up rooting for both Landon and Julianna to get their happy ending. This story also introduces us to Evelyn who we will read about in the third book Sin’s Mistress. I gave this novella ?????. In A Wager of Sin, Bianca, now a widow makes a bet with Hawk (Landon’s brother). If she wins, all her debts will be paid and if he wins, she becomes his mistress. Pretty simple, right? Apparently, Bianca was married to Hawk’s best friend and Hawk felt responsible for his demise when he had an accident because they were drunk the night before. I also liked this story but not as much as I loved The Sweetest Sin. The story was fast paced and also very steamy, perhaps more steamy than the second book. I enjoyed reading about Hawk and Bianca and loved Bianca’s transformation into a headstrong widow into an independent woman. I give this novella ????. The last book of the series, Sin’s Mistress is about Evelyn, Juliana’s sister, who we read out about in The Sweetest Sin. She was sold in exchange to settle her father, Lord Trevington’s gambling debts to Raphael Sinclair, known as Sin. Apparently he has been lusting after Evelyn for quite some time and had planned Trevington’s downfall so that he can have her in exchange. He takes her to his estate in Devon and introduces her into his life. I actually thought this novella was okay. And yes I admit, it is not my favorite. Despite the characters being well drawn out, I did not warm up to Sin asI hoped and I did not like Evelyn’s transformation as much. I give this novella ???. I bought the Sin Anthology when it was on sale for $1.99 at Barnes and Noble a couple of years ago and I have been re-reading this anthology multiple times. Personally, I love revisiting my favorite characters and books multiple times and this Anthology was a bargain. I give the whole anthology ???? just because I thought the last novella was okay. Overall, each of the characters were well drawn out and despite it being a novella, I got the feeling that it was a full novel. It was fast paced and extremely steamy (but not too much as to overwhelm the story).

Sin is a novella which includes three stories by Jess Michaels: Wager of Sin, The Sweetest Sin and Sin's Mistress. Wager of Sin:  Bianca's scandalous ways are barely tolerated by the ton and her father has threatened to lock her away if her behavior does not approve. She has been spending a lot of her time in gaming hells with her late husband's best friend, Hawk. Unfortunately, she has lost a large sum of money to him and needs it to move far away from her family. She approaches him with a bargain. Bianca will be his mistress for a month and if at the end of their time together he begs her to stay she will get all her money back from him. Hawk agrees on the condition that she has to continue to be his mistress if she is the one begging at the end of the month.  Who will be the winner of this bargain? The Sweetest Sin:  The story opens with Landon (Hawk's brother) and Juliana enjoying their wedding night. It is soon disrupted when Juliana's father snatches her away. He quickly has the wedding annulled (illegally) and she is soon married to another. It is now 5 years later and Juliana is a widow. She needs Landon's help finding her sister whom has been sold off to pay her father's gambling debts. Juliana doesn't want what happened to her to happen to her sister. Landon agrees on the condition that Juliana is in his bed from sunset to sunrise everyday. Will Juliana find her sister in time? Will Landon get his wife back? Sin's Mistress:  Evelyn (Juliana's sister) has been sold off to Sin to pay off her father's gambling debts. She arrives at Sin's home in the country with no idea who she has been sold off to. Sin has found out a secret about Evelyn and uses it against her after she arrives. But will this secret make Juliana's stay with Sin unbearable or will it be the most exciting 10 days of her life.

I'm going to give it a 4 star because there was something missing about each stories that I couldn't point out.  Each stories was missing something that is found in all the other books written by Jess Michaels.  Even so each stories leads on to each other that I don't know if you can skip one book...I think you might.  What I love about this book is that even though the stories were short, it provide enough information and heated  or steamy sex that I  could imagine it lol.

The storyline to each were very interesting but their was too much detail and sex scenes, I started scheming thru to find out what was going to happen or how the story was going to end. All three were just too wordy but I love this author, not her best novellas.
