Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Cleo Spencer desperately needs to marry in order to gain control of her inheritance and avoid her lecherous uncle's evil plots. Sir Alexander Jones needs money to light up the crime-ridden streets of the St. Giles rookery and find his missing brother. When chance throws them together, they agree to wed, never imagining they are putting their lives—and their hearts—in danger. Meticulously researched, this intriguing romance combines simmering sexual tension and subtle humor with a growing puzzle and offers a stark contrast between the world of the elite and the fetid stews of the underclass. VERDICT Moore gives readers a grim glimpse of some of the realities of the period often ignored by the genre. Focusing on the three sons of a legendary London courtesan, "Sons of Sin," with its ongoing mystery, promises to be a stunning trilogy. Moore (Sexy Lexy) lives in Mill Valley, CA.

    To Tempt a Saint

    Cleo was a gutsy, determined heroine (I've been reading a lot of those lately!). Her proposition to Xander to marry him -- she'll be free of her uncle, he'll have the funds for his pet project -- seemed like the perfect solution to both of their problems.

    For all of the discussion about tempting and Xander's assumed/joked about abstinence, there wasn't much heat between Cleo and Xander. Cleo's an innocent, of course, though she's almost an expert at lying when it suits her end game. I just expected more passion, more sexual tension from them, especially given Cleo's lying and her repeated attempts to break down Xander's hard outer shell.

    That being said, I will continue to read the series because I'm most interested in learning about Xander's brothers, given that their futures seem to be effected by the choices Xander makes in To Tempt a Saint.

    This is a terrific first Sons of Sins historical romance

    Able to attract the quality of the Ton as her lover, courtesan Sophie Rhys-Jones has three cherished "living sins" that affirm her skill. She loves all three of her offspring so is stunned when her youngest son Kit is abducted while staying with her middle child Sir Alexander "Xander" Jones. Xander and his older brother Will vow to bring Kit home to their mom even if they must enter London's darkest underbelly.

    In London wealthy Cleo Spencer needs a husband so she can get to her money controlled by her odious guardian; her uncle who has plans for her and her money. When she meets Xander, she thinks he would be perfect as her spouse as he desperately needs a wealthy wife and will allow her some liberties with her affluence. They strike a deal. As Xander continues to search the worst urban cesspools, brave Cleo follows his every footstep as she believes in him, which makes him want to work even harder at the rescue of his brother and her even when her uncle accuses them of a fake marriage.

    This is a terrific first Sons of Sins historical romance because of its dark look at the underbelly of London as Cleo and Xander collide in the slums of St. Giles; sort of moving Oliver Twist into the Regency Era. The story line is fast-paced and vivid, but owned by the lead couple as they team up to help one another; he with his amateur sleuthing and she with her need to elude her abhorrent uncle. Kate Moore provides a powerful opening act in a three part drama.
